Does anyone have any information on the Lei (thunder) clan?
I am trying to put together my family tree.
My grandfather and great grandfather had come to the US in the
early 1900's. My grandfather's name was Kim Wing Lee. The last
name is Lee because he had purchased a birth certificate with the Lee
name. He had married 3 times. Twice in China and the third time in the
US. The third marriage was during the Invasion of NamKing, China by the
Japanese.This marriage produced a son. He should be about 45-55 years old.
My grandfather roamed around the US. He was in California, Texas, Oklahoma.
He may have been other places,but these are the ones I have records to.
He was a deputy in Fort Worth, Texas in (I think) 1961. He died in 1963.
He was in WWII as a cook in 1943.
Any information would help.
I work at the New England Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts.
My name is Des Lee. I am in the process of changing it back to
Willem DW Louis. If anyone can help, please contact me. Thank you.
