Sibling of:

William migrated to Hong Kong around 1886 and worked as a commission agent.

In 1891 he purchased/ bought into Brown Jones and Co funeral directors.

He had 9 children.

What I am looking for is the mother of the children / his wife.  He was married in 1922 when he completed a passenger declaration into Canada and stated that his wife was home at Morrison Hill Road, Hong Kong.

He died in Government Hospital in 1934.

An American, George Tyson was a partner of Warren Delano Jr. and various members of the Forbes family in Shanghai Steam Navigation Company in the 1860′s.

He worked for Russell & Co. as a Partner until 1867 and lived on Caine Rd, HK and was the father of George (Bartou), Sarah & Charlotte Tyson.

I have information about George Tyson but I am looking specifically for a photo//painting of him.
