In 1915 She Chew, a merchant at Tsue Chong Co., 412 8th Avenue South, Seattle, Washington, applied to have his son, Ng Fung Yuen, a student, join him in Seattle.
The application was rejected because Ng Fung Yuen did not answer the questions accurately. An appeal was filed and Ng Fung Yuen was re-examined. The testimony of additional witnesses, Ah Gow, Ng Yee Loon and Ng Soon Aim agreed with the applicant. Over 80 pages of testimony were given. The previous decision rejecting the applicant was reversed and Ng Fung Yuen was admitted.
The photos, exhibit K and G are of Ng Fung Yuen and his brothers.

  1. Hi Trish…..WOW!!!!!!Connections to Tsue Chong Co….currently at corner of 8th So. and King St.  I can’t identify these people, but extended family connection – Arthur King-turned Tsue Chong Co  in @ the 1950’s or so into what  is called  the Rose Brand Noodle Co..  The current business is run by the Louie family whose grandfather was brought  from back east to help run the business.   Arthur King’s mother-in-law and her husband (my grandfather’s cousin) escorted  my grandmother Dung Fung Lan to her husband to Seattle on the same ship in 1900. She arrived as Mrs.Chang Tung Shi on the Roijin Maru at July 6, 1900 Port Townsend(?).To promote his noodle company outside of Chinatown, my husband said Arthur King and his girls would throw packets of fortune cookies to the crowds at the early Seafair parades.Now I have to do some digging to see where toe Engs come in,
