Birth: unknown, China
Death: Jul. 3, 1925
Island County
Washington, USA

Ah Soot came to the United States from China in 1880 at the age of thirty. He settled on Ebey's Prairie, renting seven and a half acres of land from Ernest J Hancock, where he grew potatoes and other market crops for more than two decades.

During the last years of Ah Soot's life, former employer and close friend John LeSourd visited him almost daily. When he died in 1925, Ah Soot was buried in the LeSourd family plot in Sunnyside Cemetery, the only known Chinese resident of Whidbey Island who chose not to make the final journey home to China for a traditional burial alongside his ancestors.
