: 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.
