Any sources concerning Theresa Hotoru Matsudaira's Japanese parents?

+1 vote
I know that Theresa Hotoru Matsudaira was born in the Nomi District in Ishikawa Prefecture, and that she migrated to Seattle, Washington aboard the Katori Maru in 1921.  Concerning her sister Kaoru, I found that the mother's name might have started with じ (J), and that was on the passenger list for the Kashima Maru in March 1920.  The mother lived in the town of Kimura within Kanazawa.  Kaoru lived in Kimura before she left for the United States.  I do not know the names of Kaoru's and Hotoru's parents, but I know that they might have lived in the vicinity of Kimura in Kanazawa.  Are there any people able to read and/or write Japanese who can help me find the names of the parents?

To be honest, Kumakichi Matsudaira (first initial is K as you mentioned) is actually Theresa Hotoru's father-in-law. He is the father of Thomas Tokuhisa Matsudaira, who is Hotoru's husband as you already mentioned.
On the passenger list for the Hiye Maru in 1935 as I found on, Kumakichi Matsudaira was living at 1-30, Kamiomicho, Kanazawa, Ishikawa at the time; he was also listed as the grandfather of Takehisa (John) and Yoshihisa (Michael), both of whom were through Thomas Tokuhisa; the grandsons' names were misspelled as Matsutaira.  No mentioning of their maternal grandparents, who as I know were surnamed Umeda.
