In seeking for your great grandfather's information, are you sure that "Wong" is his "true" surname. In searching for my roots, I have found that many people immigrant from China under assumed surnames.
: For clarification, do you have any idea what the "quok" name means? Because my grandfather's middle chinese name means "country". The romanization can be quite confusing, but the translation is usually clear.
: If by chance "quok" is "country" in english, then your great grandfather and my grandfather may be related.
