Joseph Arthur Kamauoha dies in Torquay, England, 1886.

We made known recently of the death of the daughters of Widemann [Widemana] in Germany, and James K. Booth in Italy, and J. A. Kamauoha in England, and the return of Hugo Kawelo from England because the Hawaiian body cannot put up with the numbingly cold air of Europe.
