Henry Wilfred Waiau weds Isabela Kaheapuulani Akiona, 1911.


Mr. Solomon Hanohano, Editor, Aloha oe: Please allow me some space of the pride of the people, so that everyone from Hawaii, island of Keawe, all the way to the sun-snatching island of Manokalanipo (Kauai), knows of the marriage of Henry Wilfred Waiau of the calm seas of Kona, where you had affection in the days of your youth, distinguished by the passing of the cloud banks and the hinano flowers in the calm, with the type-setting girl of the garden island of Manokalanipo.

After Henry Wilfred Waiau spent a year or more on Kauai, Miss Isabela Kaheapuulani Akiona of the island of Manokalanipo, the island that snatches the shining rays of the sun from the tip of Kumukahi and setting at the base of Lehua, proudly took him (H. W. Waiau) and placed him in the sacred stage of the covenant of matrimony at 8 oʻclock in the evening of last Wednesday, and the two of them were joined by Rev. W. Kamau of the church of Lihue, Kauai.

The ceremony was held with reverence, and when the ceremony let out, the youths got in a car of Coney Garage Co., accompanied by the mother of the young girl, and they returned home. There, they mingled happily with the family and friends. There was a light meal, and the stomachs were filled with ice cream and cakes. When this let out at night time, the family and friends who were gathered left the young couple with grand hopes for their future happiness and headed for their homes, while lit by the Mahealani moon.

Isabela Akiona is a young woman of 19 years old from Nawiliwili, Kauai, and because she worked well with patience for 3 years at the printing office of the Garden Island, she was promoted to forewoman of the press. The manager of the paper, K. C. Hopper graciously gave her some weeks of vacation. Perhaps she will go to Honolulu and then all the way to the two Kona of Hawaii, the birthplace of her young husband. The young man was educated at Kamehameha School, and graduated in 1906. He worked in Kona and town, and because of his poor health, he left the company of B. P. Ehlers & Co., and went to Kauai where he worked with the government land surveying engineers of Hawaii. He took a fancy to the garden island, and there he remains as a clerk for the Ford dealership at the storehouse in Nawiliwili, and also working at Coney Garage Co.
