No. 8510, Charles W. Vincent, 4th November 1854
Claimant offers in evidence a deed of conveyance of this lot from Isaac Montgomery & wife, to the claimant, dated 22d April 1843, & recorded in our Books at Volume 3, Foreign Register, and page 23.
Isaac Montgomery, sworn, says the deed now presented by the claimant is correct. The lot in question was occupied and held by my wife and her aunt, Kamakakoa, deceased, at the time I arrived in Honolulu, in July 1838, from which time the lot was held by my wife up to the time we sold it to the present claimant. Never heard of any dispute to her title.
P.F. Manini, sworn, says he knows the lot claimed by Vincent. It belonged anciently to the ancestors of Mrs. Montgomery,
from to whom it descended after them, and she held undisputed possession of it up to the time they sold it to Vincent in 1843.
