Charles W. Fox, leader of a CPRR Chinese work gang

From: "Linda Moorhouse"

... Are there any documents still in existence that would list the personnel that were involved with the building of the Transcontinental Railroad. I am researching my family, and my Great-Grandfather always told us that he was a gang leader for a Chinese work gang and was present during the driving of the Golden Spike. His name was Charles W. Fox originally of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.

Any information or direction you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
