KAINANA HIRAM PASSES ON TO OTHER WORLD

At eleven o’clock in the night of last Tuesday, Mrs. Hiram, who was a kamaaina to the people of this town, Mrs. Elizabeth Kainana Puahi Hiram, grew weary of this life at her home on Makee Road¹ in Waikiki.

She was born on the 22nd of June, 1853, therefore, at her passing, she was 73 years old.

On the evening of this past Sunday, her funeral was held at the mortuary of M. E. Silva.

¹Although spelled Makee, this is pronounced Makī, just as how Ena of Ena Road is pronounced Ina.

(Kuokoa, 8/5/1926, p. 6)

  1. Oh my. 8 years after the letter from Peter K. (in 1917, age 20) which means that Mrs. Hiram at 73 in 1926 would most likely have been Peter’s hānai parent. Hoihoi!
