Death of Pilipo Naone, John K. Naone’s father, 1882.


On the 16th of February past, Naone let out his last breath, and the man returned to his Lord whom he loved greatly, for whom he was a servant in many good works; Naone died at eighty or so years old. He was born up in Pauoa. His father was Mahi and his  mother was Hama [?? it is hard to read]; his parents were from Kauai and then resided in Pauoa; these parents had three children: Pokaakua, along with P. Naone and D. Lima; Pokaakua and Lima died ealier, and only Naone lived until old age, living for more than 80 years. Continue reading


I wonder what became of these… 1843.


I want some ancient idols [kii]; the idols that were worshiped in these islands before. Those who have the, bring them to me, and I will purchase them.

Question put out to the public, 1843.

Here me O People of Hawaii nei; what do you all think of this cession of the kingdom? Is it fine? Your heart probably aches for the king and all the alii; That is how it should be; we are all hurting; however, do not grieve, do not revolt, do not let your resolve waver. We must remain calm and abide by the laws; don’t think that the laws have fallen, not at all, they are still totally in effect. There was a small disturbance in Honolulu the other night, and some men severely injured some of the sailors from the warship, and therefore the laws are being announced once again these days, so that the confusion of the people will end.

O Christian people of Hawaii nei, do not feel uncertain over the cession of the nation; our kingdom does not lie in this world, we have a different kingdom in the heavens; it is a great kingdom which is permanent, and unshakeable, and peaceful. Its king is good; he watches over his people, and they live forever. The nations of this world end quickly and are gone forever, but the kingdom of Jesus Christ will never end. Let us search after this kingdom and its righteousness, and we will be saved from the turbulence of this world.

Early encouragement to send in vital statistics information, 1857.


I request of everyone of Hawaii nei: the Schoolmasters, teachers, school superintendents, and all people in general, to inform us immediately of the names of pe0ple who get married, and give birth, and die, in your area; they will be published together in the Hae Hawaii weekly so that the readers will see. That is how the haole papers work; those kinds of things are printed weekly. This is how to write in.

O Hae Hawaii; P. Kimo and E. Kalama were wed on the 5th of Ap. 1857, Lahaina; they were married by D. B.

Or like this. O H. H. On the 5th of Ap., 1857, Kahale died at Waialua, Oahu, at 35 years of age. He died of fever.

Or like this. O H. H. On the 5th of Ap. 1857, Aka was born, a son, to Kamai and Kahele, at Kaupo, Maui.

That is how they will be printed succinctly, and they will be published all together in the Hae every week; the church members and friends from afar will be happy to read this sort of thing. Therefore, everyone be alert to these things. Let the Schoolmasters and all educated people be encouraged so that this information is given at promptly. Inform us of when a child is born, so too when someone dies, and when people get married. That is how it is done in enlightened lands; and this indeed is an enlightened land; the time of ignorance has passed. Report it all to the Head of the Hae Hawaii, J. Fuller.
