This is my Great Grandfather. My FATHER'S MOTHER'S DAD. No his tombstone does not have any writing in Chinese on it as far as I can remember I am going to the cemetary tomorrow will check again. I do have his hand writing in chinese which I will try and copy and cut and paste it to you on the site. I am not sure how this works typing in this space I just hope I have done it correctly
: Do you have an e-mail address where I can post his hand writing(Chinese hand writing) I haven't been able to cut and paste in this page.
: : Since your gggf died in Australia, do you have a photo of his tombstone? Does it have Chinese inscription on it?
