I have been considering a Mr C.Z. Ede to be the best candidate for my British great-grandfather who fathered children in Japan.
However, during the 1890s, there were many foreigners living in Kobe. So, I am now looking for people with similar backgrounds, as well as C.Z. Ede. The Japan Directory lists foreigners and it has been published every year from around 1870 until the early 1900s. I was looking for a person who lived in Kobe in that document.
The oldest brother of my grandfather was born in January 1893. The youngest of the three brothers was born in September 1899. I have heard that my grandfather did not know his father. So, I think he was in Kobe great from before 1892 until 1899. Roster principle person who was in January of that year is published. Persons listed in list 1900 and I thought that there is a possibility. However, great-grandmother is in the householder on behalf of her father's poor health in 1902. So, I think that is less likely to was in Japan is great-grandfather until 1902.
I think the person who left Japan in 1899 to 1901 in the person who was in Japan in January 1899 is to be a candidate of great-grandfather.
I have extracted a person where there is the possibility in addition to CZEde from its roster.
That is the next name. CZEde thought it was British because the company was the UK system. However, this time candidates, article does not clearly poor nationality. In addition, even obscure description, even I do not know whether individual or otherwise.
Until 1899, but was in Japan, people or organization that was not in Japan in 1900.
- Groppi .A
- Mahlmann Capt j, j.,(I think that it is not person )
But it was in 1900 in Japan. After that, I could not be investigated in the study expires, the person or organization.
- Kerr.w.a (I think that it is not a British)
- Noёl E.W.H.H (I think that it is not a British)
- weale, A.G.M ,. cornes & co(I think that it is organization )
The person on the top and C.Z. Ede remained as a candidate. I think one of these eight (plus C.Z. Ede) must be my great-grandfather. But it is difficult to identify this new candidate of nationality. Because, CZEde was, can be identified because it was found a company that was working, I do not know only the name of the upcoming candidate.
