I am looking for anything related to the following person:
Wong Bok Lum born June 5 1899
"August 17th 1908: Lum’s father sailed for China leaving Lum in the Home, and going to court with me, and giving the Guardianship to us at the request of Mrs. J. E. Piatt through me. As we were ready to go on a trip to the East with 8 children. In answer to prayer his support for two years was given by Rev. N. M. Woodward. June 1910 Lum left the home and went to Mrs. English’s to board at $15.00 per month. July 1913 went to Mrs. Dyes at Petaluma He is supported by the Baltimore Conference. He was baptized while in Washington D. C. in Foundry Church by Rev _____ Pastor of the Church at the close of the W.H.M.S. Convention."
I have more material on this person, and would like to correspond with anyone who is descended from him.
