Information regarding SI, KEZHUANG

Post by Njoung » 29 Jun 2017 03:17

First post here for me, looking for some information regarding a distant relative of mine. I was recently given his military coat from WW2 (or shortly therafter), which caused me to look into this again. Here is what I've been told so far:

His name was SI, KEZHUANG. He was a retired soldier (I've been told general), who served under Chiang Kai Shek. When he fled to Taiwan he married into my family in what was mostly an arrangement for her to take care of him. He was 99 around 1990, and at some point moved to California and died there (I think it was about a year after arriving).

He was also an artist who drew many pictures about tigers and ancient characters. These works were all dumped before the migration of his family.

I know this isn't much information, but hopefully somebody has something.

Thanks,

Nick

Hi Nick,

I would suggest you to write down his Chinese Name. It is more easy to check with Chinese sources.4

Just came across your post and I have a short bio of this general as below:

General SI Kezhuang's brother-in-law YANG Shisan (1889-1939) was a communist army officer who was killed in action in the battle against Japanese troops in 1939.

Attached general Si's pic but the quality is no that satisfactory. Hope the info is valuable for you.

Cheers
