: looking for ANY information on HENRY HAM SULE native of Canton, China
: His mother was GEE SHE and his father was KEN HONG

GEE is her maiden name which means red and SHE is the Chinese word for surname. In the old days it was common to refer the wife as such. As a matter of fact that is how all wives are recorded in Chinese clan records.
