Stephen Reynolds was in Honolulu while Kamehameha II lived there, 1868.


When King Liholiho resided in Honolulu, there was an increase of haole living in Honolulu at that time; some were of high standing, some were ship captains, some were traders, and some had shops. The haole living there at the time were: Jones Aluli, Mister Parker [Mikapako], Stephen Reynolds [Lanai], Newalo, Captain Apiki, William Lihiula, Captain David [Davis] Opealoa, Captain Meek [Kapena Miki], Captain John Meek [Kapena John Miki], and Captain Winship [Kapena Winihepa]. Some of haole that were kamaaina were: George Holms [Homa], Mr. Alika, Don Francisco Marin [Manini], Captain William Nukuiole, and some other familiar haole were living in Honolulu and the many countrysides; but the majority of the haole led the King to drink and great debt.
