My grandfather Wong Duk Bel was born in Pakchow, Toisan in 1892. He left China in 1906 and married my grandmother Lucille Mary Kane in Cleveland, Ohio about 1918. Their sons were named Siehong David Wong, Siefoon Fred Wong and Sietoi Louie Wong. My grandfather owned a restaurant in Cleveland. Wong Duk Bel was deported back to China in 1930. The family never heard from him again. Does anyone have any idea what Siehong, Siefoon and Sietoi mean and can you help mu with the spelling of Pakchow. That's my phonetic spelling of the village of his birth. I've just started to try to find out about my grandfather, I always thought it would be impossible after so many years and so little information. Now, I'm trying. Thank you for your help.
