Renovation of Kawaiahao Cemetery, 1867.

[Found under: “LOCAL NEWS”]

Graveyard of Kawaiahao.—Most of the people of the Capital City of Honolulu have perhaps heard that the cemetery of Kawaiahao is being renovated, and some people have imagined that the bodies laid there to rest, along with the yard and other things at peace there will be plowed up, but this is not the case. The Kahu of Kawaiahao wants to flatten out the graveyard so that there are no humps or holes, to flatten out and fill in the depressions that lay open, and also to make a road for carts to travel on, and to grow shade trees like the greenery of other church yards. It is the truth, the bodies that lay in the yard and the bodies in the crypts will remain as is. Don’t get worked up over what you hear, lest you be shocked.
