Lucy Kahaina Keohohinaokalani Kekoa turns 50 years old, 1919.



To Solomon Hanohano, Esq., Aloha oe:—Please let me introduce before you and your workers of the press.

Last Sunday, January 5, 1919, Mrs. Lucy Kahaina Keohohinaokalani Kekoa made 50 years old; she is a native mother and kamaaina to the dark cliffs of Koolaupoko, and there she was born from the loins of Mrs. Lilia Kamaka Kailiponi and C. Apela Kailiponi on the 5th of January, 1869, and she is a mother who is well known to Honolulu’s people, and she has many family and friends on the islands.

She was educated at the Kawaiahao Seminary during her youth; she gave a luau party at their home in Kapuuiki, Waimanalo, Koolaupoko, through the grace of our heavenly Father in the heavens, by him giving her good health and strength.

Invited were her friends, her family that are close to her, that being her brother, David Kailiponi; her nephews; her nieces; her dear aikane, Mrs. Ana Akana; and her moopuna; they all sat at the dining table with the person whose day it was, and it was her younger brother David Kailiponi who blessed the food with a short prayer, and when it was over, what was on the outside went inside, until they were full; and I give my limitless congratulations to the one whose 50th jubilee it is, and to the metal typesetting boys of the Kilohana (the Kuokoa).

With appreciation,


Holokahana Lane, Honolulu.
