: I am looking for information on my grandfather who was known in the US as J.W. Suey. I am told that the name was Chou Wing Suey and he was from Canton. Born around 1877. Came to US late 1890s, early 1900s. Operated a laundry business in St. Augustine, FL and later in upper Manhattan in New York City. Any information or suggestions for searching are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
The St. Augustine Historical Society has City Directories that list your grandfather and his laundry from 1909-1910 to 1937. His business and his residence were on 5 Hospital Street from beginning in the 1909-1910 Dircetory. The 1922-1923 Directory lists him at 1 Hospital Street. Beginning with the 1922-1923 Directory he is Listed as being at 1 Aviles Street, since the name of Hospital Street was changed to Aviles Street.
I hope this us useful to you.
