Hi, I'm looking for any information about the surname Quimson. It's believed to be Chinese in origin.
Those in our family are often mistaken to be Chinese. Also when my father was immigrating to the States his physican said something about it meaning 'Golden Mountain' and possibly originating from northeastern, near the border with Korea.
Variations used by different relatives at various times have included: Quimson, Quimzon, Quimsong, Quimzong.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. ^^
