Awesome Man

My Great Great Grandfather was an amazing man.

In the 1920s he was one of the only people to get out of China to NZ. He didn’t go to war because he was hurt.  He grew vegetables for people on Chinaman’s Hill in Hamilton.

He built the house that I live in now.  His name was Koko.  He left his family in China with his wife.  He got a new wife in NZ. They had two children. I almost met him because I was born in 2004 and he died in 2004.
