The family of Yu Tiamo or presently known as Yutiamco. Tiamo brought Chinese trade and people of the Ming Dynasty into the then Muslim National Archipelago (Philippines) escaping the conquering Ching Dynasty of Empress Dowager (mother of Xuan Tong the later Emperor Puyi), other was the Royal Tan family from the Ming Provincial Emperor Tan Hong Tee Sima of the Southern States China against the Ching. The Tans reverted to Islam and a progeny became the Datu Tan Tuy Piang of Cotabato. In the western Visayas, are the Chiog bein and many others.
