Great granddaughter born to Samuel K. Kekoowai, 1922.


A letter arrived from my granddaughter informing her tutu that she brought forth into this world of light, a daughter from her loins, on Thursday, the 12th of this October, 1922, at 9:30 a.m.

She asked also for me to name that great-grandchild of mine, and so I followed through and gave the ancestral name, Miss May Kaaoliko Kahalakupumaikai-o-Aina-manuhaaipo Manouluae.

This is the fourth great-grandchild born of my three grandchildren who have partners, and there remains eight grandchildren, almost mature enough to surf the comber [ua aneane no e hee i ka nalu kakala].

Praise the Lord of all things, from whom is the life of this new blossom, and my hope is that she live a long life.

[Kekoowai appears frequently in the newspapers and is known to have written the great story “Makalei, ka Laau Pii Ona a ka i’a o Moaula-Nui-Akea i Kaulana,” which appears as a serial column in the Kuokoa from 1/6/1922 to 1/10/1924, with no conclusion because of his death.]

    • Aloha kāua. I don’t think I can change that kind of thing. I think you would just need to reregister. I think that should do it.
      Mahalo for coming along on the journey!
