Historical Chemulpo was an international port city, 25 miles southwest of Seoul, where Incheon is now. A “C. Herzberg” (most likely her father) was the second machinist on the Korean steamer “Hai Riong” in 1889 and 1890. In 1904, he is listed in a Shanghai directory as working for Arnhold, Karberg & Co. out of Hankow.
