Francis Parkman KNIGHT [1831-1880]
Am looking for any information on Francis Parkman Knight (1831-1880), an American Consulate officer stationed in Newchwang, China in 1862 and died in Shanghai. I am trying to determine if he is the father of Yuk-Hing Lai (1870-1945), the 2nd wife of Sir Ho Kai (1859-1914).
He had a son named Kennitt Stephen Knight.
Kennitt had a son name Thomas Leonard Knight.
Thomas had a son named David Francis Knight (1933- ) born in HK, interned there during WWII.
I am a descendant of Yuk-Hing Lai and Ho Kai and am hoping to flesh out some family history.
Any leads to available resources - birth, school, marriage, tax or death records - would be appreciated.
