Have you searched census records for 1880 for Merced Co @ Soundex code for him, but he'd be only 4 yrs old (if his daughter was born in 1912 when he was 18) or you may have to do a line by line search of the Chinese community for Merced to hopefully findfor his parents. Usually the Chinese population in those small towns tended to live in a community and would be found in a "block."
