THAT HEAVENLY ONE PASSED BY, STAGGERED AWAY,
GONE ON THAT DARK PATH OF KANE
On the morning of this past Tuesday, May 28th, the shocking news spread all over the capital of the Territory of Hawaii, that the terrifying sickle of the angel of death was stretched out and cut short the life of the High Chief Abraham Kaikioewa Palekaluhi, at eighty-one years of living on this earth. Death took him from his home in Kalihi.
He was a favorite chiefly descendant in the court of the past Kings of Hawaii, all the way until the high chiefs living now. He had many positions in the government. He was a tax assessor at one point, and a tax collector as well. He managed a bar at the corner mauka of the corner of King Street and Nuuanu Avenue. He was a skilled mechanic. He was a friend and a ally of all. He was a true believer in the Roman Catholic faith, and he was in the Republican party until his last breath. This Friday, May 31st, his remains [kino wailua] was carried to the last abode where his body would be laid.
He descended from two royal lineages, from Hawaii and from Maui.
Hawaii Island Lineage:—Keawe, the King of Hawaii, “wed” [noho] with Kalanikauleleiaiwi (f) and Kekuiapoiwanui (f) was born, who wed Kekaulike (m), the King of Maui, and Kamehameha Nui was born (which was not Kamehameha I, Ka Na’i Aupuni of Hawaii), who wed with Manuhaaipo (f) and Kalaniulumoku (m) was born, who wed Kualiiwahine (f) and born was Loeauwahine (f), who wed Koakanu (m), and Liliha (f) was born, who wed Kulinui (m) and Aberahama Kaikioewa Palekaluhi was born.
