Sam Hing, an early officer of the Six Chinese Companies

From: "Fernando Ramirez"

My wife and I are looking for information on her great grandfather Sam Hing. He lived in San Francisco in the 1800's and was a banker and a labor contractor there and was an early officer of the Six Chinese Companies.

Then he moved to El Paso Texas. We know he furnished supplies and labor for Utah and the Texas Paciflc Road and was married to a creole women named Louisa Sidonia Veque from New Orleans. They had a son; the first Chinese American born in Texas in 1885. So if by any chance you may have any information or pictures it would help us. ...
