I believe that I found our town for Chock Family
Verbally, our town is Goo Hok Chyun, Kung Seong Doo, Chungshan. This is Cantonese
Chungshan is the district in Guangdong province.
Kung Seong Doo is the district which I think has changed.
Goo Hok is the village. Chyun (village).
In Mandarin, it is pronounced GuHe Cun
Kung Seong Doo is one of the administrative districts of Chungshan. Chungshan was named Heungshan pre 1911. Doo is a district so Kung Seong Doo is one of 10. In 1911, there were slight boundry changes and doo became ‘kee’. There were 9 districts. Kung Seong Doo became #6 precinct. I guess it would be called no 6 kee now. I haven’t found a map that states these precincts or districts today, but I did find maps of the ‘doo’s.
Each of these districts then had ‘villages’ within them called chuen (jyutping) or cun (pinyin).
You may see Heung (jyutping) that is a subdistrict made up of one or more villages.
I found several maps of Chung Shan ‘doo’ or ‘kee’ districts: One of them from Wai Jane Char’s ‘Geography of Kwangtung Province for Hawaii Residents’ ( a good read) indicates ‘Goo Hok’ on the left or west side of Kung Seong Doo.
I found this map 1954 army map which indicates Ku-Hao. In the middle next to Mao-wan. I put the larger map also..
Google maps indicates that this area is Guhecun
