Keaunui family history, 1874.

[Found under: “Local News”]

On the 22nd of April, the King spoke at Lanakila Church in Hauula, and at the end of his royal speech, Keaunui brought his youngest daughter before the King; the King kissed the small girl, and the King asked, “Is this your daughter?” Keaunui said, “Yes, she is mine, her mother is over there, she is pregnant again.” The King responded, “When she gives birth, name the baby Kahooululahui,”¹ and the word of the King was agreed to. On the night of the 24th, when the King was in Ewa, at 2 o’clock at night, Mrs. Hellen K. Keaunui gave birth to a son, with J. L. Keaunui, and he was immediately named David Kahooululahui. He was the 13th of their children, they are just a small bit of the growing of the lahui; how blessed would be the nation if all the women from Hawaii to Kauai were like her.

¹”Hooulu Lahui” was Kalakaua’s famed motto, encouraging the increasing of the nation/race.

Look back at the 1867 laying of the cornerstone of St. Andrew’s Cathedral, 1906.

This is the first laying of the cornerstone of the Anglican Church of Honolulu, on March 5, 1867. Standing near the cornerstone is King Kamehameha V, and behind him are the priests of the Anglican Church. And behind those two are the attendants of the King and his Cabinet of Ministers, and to the right side of the cornerstone is the British Consul Wodehouse and his wife.

More on the weekly Lahainaluna newspaper, “Ko Lahainaluna Ponoi.” 1874.

[Found under the title: “O ka mikiala hana” (Prompt work)]

This Monday we saw a handwritten newspaper published amongst the students of the Lahainaluna College, called Ko Lahainaluna Ponoi; that paper is done promptly but with much effort, for each page is handwritten and it is published every Wednesday.
