[Some newspapers ran vital statistics columns, while others did not. Also the above is an example of a vital statistics column appearing in one paper at the same time another paper prints their own column. They are not the same. See the following post of the Kuokoa column.

Also, there are other articles in this issue giving vital statistics information:

p. 1—”He kanikau no Apuiki,” gives information on Apuiki who died in January, like the parents are Kaiho and Keaka, and elder sibling (of same sex) was named Keliihelela…

p. 1—”He wahi moolelo no J. Kaihupaa,” gives a nicely detailed biography of J. Kaihupaa, who dies on 2/26/1862. He was intimately involved in the royal court. Kamehameha IV took care of much of the funeral. The article is written by J. W. Iaukea (father of Curtis Piehu Iaukea)…

p. 3—”OLELO HOOLAHA, (by Mrs. Napapai),” is a personal announcement speaking of Kahinahina of Honolulu who just died, who is the true child of Kapau who also died, who was a member of the King’s Hulumanu. She claims all lands of Kaaihinahina, which are listed…

p. 3—”OLELO HOOLAHA, (by JNO. E. BARNARD),” is an official announcement saying that Kamaha asked to be the executor of the estate of Maau of Honolulu who died…

And on and on…]
