I don't know if anyone can help me. My grandfather was born in China in the Toy Sun Village. I believe this is in or near Canton, China. I got the name of the village from an old family friend who came from China who's dad was good friends with my grandfather. It may be a phoentic spelling. My grandfather's Chinese name was Yee Git and his American name was Tom Yee and he came to the US around 1907 - 1910. I have a "restored" birth certificate from San Francisco, but I'm betting my grandfather took advantage of the San Francisco fire to "acquire" a birth certificate. He finally settled in Akron, Ohio. The friend told me that my grandfather had a wife and a son in China. The son would be around 65-70 now. Can anyone tell me anything about this Toy Sun village?
