Wong Family History

Voy and Fay Wong

Voy and Fay were born in 1913 and 1917 respectively in neighboring villages in Toisan, Guangdong, China. They were married in 1934 before Voy immigrated to the United States. Separated by World War II, it would be 13 years before Fay would see Voy again. After the war, Voy returned to China to bring Fay to the United States in 1947. Former Riverside Mayor, Bill Evans, picked up the reunited couple in San Francisco when their ship docked and drove them back to Riverside.
