Right now I'm obsessing about my great uncle's first name. I was going through some old notes of conversations with my grandmother and found an old stained envelope where I took notes once when talking to her and it says her brother's name was "Yakusuke." This is my representation of her pronunciation. On the Rock Springs death certificate it says "Hikusuke." They are close but there is still a question in my mind. I am going to try to hunt down the passenger lists from entry to San Francisco between 1897 to 1905. If anyone is bothering to read this, I'd like your opinion. My great grandfather's name is too stained to read but it obviously starts with an S and ends in ___hi.
