Background information on Lee Shao?

From: "Naomi Takeuchi"

I am doing research for a children's picture book and would like to base the story on Lee Shao who is one of the three men pictured in the 50th anniversary picture of the historic date at Promontory Point that you have posted on your website.

If you have any resources which would be helpful, I would appreciate your assistance. For example, was he recruited by Charles W. Crocker? Was he one of the men who worked twelve hours straight to lay the last 10 miles? Do you know why he was one of only eight men chosen to attend the ceremony at Promontory Point?
