Since you know it's in Toishan, try contacting Jimmy at www.taishan.com. He's an ABC that went to Toishan and is currently running the Taishan site from there and might be able to point you in the right direction. He also books tours etc.
Chin's a pretty common name in Toishan. Does your dad's headstone happen to have Chinese characters? Usually his village and Chinese name would be there, I'm sure someone at this site or www.Taishan.com would be able to read it and point you in the right direction too.
