The short life and tragic death of Boston's first Chinese resident

Richard Auffrey introduces us to a Chinese teenager known only as Chou, who signed on with a Boston sea captain, who brought him back to Boston in 1796. Two years later, Chou fell to his death from the mast of the captain's ship. He's buried in the Central Burying Ground.
