N.R. 444v6

Greetings to the Land Commissioners: I, Kaiaino, hereby enter my claim for my house lot and my lo`i, in Lahaina, in Kelawea Nui. This is my message.

F.T. 170-171v7
Cl. 7777, Kaiaino, See Cl. 10667, page 132

Liu, sworn, The claimant is dead, but his only child, Kanui, his daughter is his heir. Hedied in 1848 with the measles and so did his wife Nalima. Kanui, I should say is an adopted child. He has one true child a little girl which Kanui takes care of. It is a baby.

It is a house lot in "Kelawea," including 2 lois. Kaiaino received this land from Kanui, mother of Nalima in 1842. Nalima lived under Kapihenui, who has sent in a claim for this same lot. (See Kapihenui's claim. I heard a few days since Kapihenui now occupies the house lot. There were 33 lois, but Pikanele took away one in 1845 and he has lately thrown down Kaenui's house. Kaenui has two lois in this lot now dry. Kapihenui said she was still wishing that Kanui should live there and have the two lois if she desired them).

.... 42 Kaiaino had lived with Nalima in that lot under Papihenui. Recently this interest has been made to Kapihonui. Pikanele had bought one of these patches from Nawai and he also has destroyed Naomi's house. These 3 patches are in Kapihenui's lot all in the same area. Kaiaino had been from Kamakapelapela. Maele had given this interest Kanakapelapela in 1838. Pikanele had said that he has taken these patches for himself because of his role as a konohiki.

Work on this claim was done before the tax assessor and the secretary of interior John Young when they had ruled it for Kaiaino. The land commissioners had also opposed in the same way, in that the 3 patches outside (of the lot) and the single patch on the inside which Pikanele had bought from Nawai and expecting the Friday lot were for Kaiaino. Both Pikanele and Kaninau had become destitute.

Here are the boundaries:

Section 1 - 1 patch outside.
Mauka by Pikanele's lot
Olowalu by Peke's land
Makai by Pikanele's lot
Kaanapali by Kaluaokamano.

Section 2 - 2 patches.
Mauka and Olowalu by Kapoulu stream
Makai by Kaumunui
Kaanapali by Ahikuli ahupuaa.
