Euginia Keohokalani Maluhi Pilipo and Manuel Reis married 50 years, 1929.

TWO OF THEM MARRIED FOR 50 YEARS

FRIENDS GATHER TO GIVE THEIR CONGRATULATIONS

At the hour of 3 in the afternoon, of this past Wednesday, Dec. 4, Mr. and Mrs. Manuel Reis opened their home to welcome their many friends who went to honor them for their fifty years of marriage.

Euginia Keohokalani Maluhi Pilipo and Manuel Reis were married on December 4, 1879, at 8 o’clock that night in the Roman Catholic Church by Bishop Halemano.

Mr. Reis arrived in Honolulu nei in 1875 as the result of an accident. He was working aboard the whaler Atlantic [moku-o-kohola Akelanika] and sailed here to the Pacific Ocean. One night their whaler crashed into another whaler, but neither sank. Both captains of the damaged ships decided to sail for Hawaii, 4000 miles away, whereas from where they crashed it was only 2000 miles away from the closest land.

Reis landed in Hawaii nei on September 12, 1875. He became sick, and because he did not get well before the ship left, he was left behind here in Honolulu, and that is why he lived here and married his wife of fifty years of marriage.

Mrs. Reis was born in Honolulu nei in January 1865.

They have three children; one boy and two girls. The girls are school teachers for our government schools.
