I am researching my grandmother's side of the family, the Kwan Yuen Cheong, family of 15.   I would like to know where the couple resided and also where the second generation (each) lived.   My great-grandmother was raised by Daniel and Mary Ayow Caldwell and educated by Lady Ball (Dyer Ball's second wife).  A lot has been written about her and her dentist husband, who worked for the LMS print shop before apprenticing under an "American missionary dentist" (Rudi Butt's blog says that would be Varnum David Collins but I cannot find his sources nor reach the author).
