I am searching for descendants of Chinese-American children born in Hong Kong in the 1880's. Annie Benning, Thomas, George and others were the children of Augustus and Thomas Theodore Benning of Georgia, USA. Gus and Thomas Theodore Benning were ship's captains in China in the mid to late 19th century. After his brother died, Gus returned to Georgia and married his cousin. The children remained in China and were boarded at a Church School. One child, Annie Benning became a nurse and eventually moved to Formosa. Any children she had could still be alive. Her brother Thomas did come to the USA in the 1930's. I would like to hear from descendants of any Benning children mentioned above.
