Maunumu dies at 116 years of age, 1918.

Died at 116 Years Old; Saw Kamehameha I.

When Maunumu of Keokea, Kona, Hawaii died, his age reached 116 years, the one who made people consider that he saw Kamehameha I, “Ka Nai Aupuni” of Hawaii nei, before his death. There was no time when this man spoke of what he saw in his childhood, except for the time when he was asked by a missionary many years ago. It is said by some Hawaiians who are now 70, that they know Maunumu and he is old; when they were young it was believed that this man saw and knew Kamehameha. Should that indeed be so, then his days upon this earth were truly long.
