No. 1037, Hanunu, from page 53, June 9

John Ii, sworn and stated, "When Kalawahine was for Kinopu and even before that I had seen Hanunu living on this place for which he is claiming and he had lived there from the year 1832 or probably 3 to this day, but there was no fence there at that time, and as I have seen it is true that he has lived there. The trees which his parents have planted are growing there. Kupo had lived there to his death and the interest was inherited by his wife, Kalehua. She had a house there at that time. When Kalehua left that place, Hanunu lived there and she has never returned to this day. Kamanu has had the place enclosed.
