I am the granddaughter of M. Myers who was a Sephardic
Jew and business man in Shanghai during the Sassoon, Hardoon
period. He is mentioned briefly in "From The Rivers
of Babylon To the Whangpoo." I have two cousins living
here in the United States. We are the daughters of his three
daughters. I live near Atlanta, Georgia USA. I just wanted
to let you know that he has living descendants (grandchildren,
great grandchildren and great great grandchildren).
This information had been lost to us since our mothers
were not raised in the Jewish tradition which was lost to
us over the years. Through a friend in London and the internet,
we have put the very fascinating pieces together.
With kindest regards,
Arline Hayes Chapman (daughter of Ruth Myers Hayes)
