No. 395, Kahikona, March 2, 1846
N.R. 128v2

Kahikona's houselots at Puako and Waianae were obtained from Kekauonohi, my beloved friend. In the year 1828 I got a parcel of land from Haehae at Waianae nui. It was combined into one lot. It was gotten on February 6. I very much want to have the benefits and am having the lot measured, hence my petition.
Puako, Lahaina

N.T. 188-189v2
No. 395, Kahikona, Lahaina, February 16, 1847

Kekuokoa, sworn by the Word of God, I have seen the property of Kahikona which is at Puako. Kekauonohi had given this to him after the death of Kalaimoku on Hawaii. It has been enclosed with a fence with two houses on the inside, one of which is not thatched with pili. No one has objected to him. The chief had given it to Kekauonohi and Kahikona lives there now. There are three lots there, two at Waianae and one at Puako which is the third one.

Kekuawahaiki, sworn by the Bible, I have seen Kaiukona fence the property which was a short fence. When Haehae returned Kahikona was putting up the fence and he said, "The fence is short, isn't it?" "The people for this lot have not been found," he replied. Then the konohiki said, "Do complete your work." He has lived and cultivated there to this day. No one has objected to him. After the death of Keopulani he then acquired the land. Haehae was the konohiki of Waianae at that time and that is all I have known.

.... Nakaikuaana where he built houses and lived there until his death. The houses are still standing there and C. Kaanaina is making demands for this place.

28 December 1854
Kuakamauma, sworn, I have seen and heard from Nakaikuaana to C. Kanaina. when he (Nakaikuaana) was near death, he brought his entire estate and all personal things including the house and said, "I have a grandchild in Hawaii, he is Kameeiamoku and is my heir." He is the kanaka of W.C. Lunalilo, the King, just as he was in the olden time. Nakaikuaana had received that house lot form Mrs. Hoapili during Liholiho's reign and he lived there continuously until his death.

Kahoinea, sworn, I have known that this place had been from Nakaikuaana and he received this place from Hoapili during Liholiho's reign and he lived there until his death.

Kahikona's is the own daughter, Mohihio, the wife of Nakaikuaana. It is my feeling that this place is for my son under W.C. Lunalilo.

J. Kapena, sworn, upon the death of Mrs. Hoapili in 1841, M. Kekauluohi, her heir, called all persons for a declaration of property in their possession and Nakaikuaana was one of them who had come. He told of the lands which were with him and of the houses Hoapili had given him in Pakala and he was to live with the King for life. I have written about other things which may be found in M. Kekauluohi's book.
