Birth Announcement and Genealogy to Boot! 1920.

This is something joyous for me, the makuahine to announce, so that my many dear ones will know; my kaikamahine, Adline Kuumanai and her husband Richard Swan have had their first child, a plump babe, and she is named Sophia Lucy Kaomealani, an ancestral name. Adline Kuumanai is a grandchild of John Kahikina Sheldon and Amy Kahakukaalani Cummings. This is something that I, her aunty, Mrs. Minnie K. Francis, is proud of.

Meaning behind a name, 1878.

[Found under: “NA NU HOU HAWAII.”]

Motivating the increase of the Lahui—July 16, 1878, at Mana, Kauai, a daughter was born to Kahoonei (m) and Kolailai (f). This girl was named Anna Harriet Kahuakaipaoa Kahoonei, in honor of the unsuccessful trip of the Hon. Joseph U. Kawainui and his fellow travellers, Mrs. Anna Kaulaokeahi, P. Costa, Miss Harriet L. Moore, Miss Ruth Mahoe, Miss Agnis Akanaka [Agnes Akanaka], Rev. J. H. Mahoe, and Simon Puniwai, who did not see the fire-brand cliffs of Kamaile.

J. P. Kanuikino.

{We admire this name, and hope that she will grow and become motivated to increase the Lahui, and that she will have many descendants after her. Editor}
