.... anding on that property. It was built when the government road was being built in the year 1847 ant that was the time also when she had gone to live there. Kekuanui's interest in this property is from Pehu obtained during Kaahumanu's time, and he has lived there to this day."

Kaopae, sworn and stated, "I have seen Kekuanui's property exactly as Makohikohi has just related here. Kaiwi is objecting now. There had been no objections by Kaiwi at the time they were living there. Now he objects. Kaiwi has no house there while Kahai's house stands there. She is Kaiwi's sister. She had lived where the government road is laying and when she was evicted, she lived on this place. Kekuanui hat received from Pehu her interest in this property because the older sister of Kekuanui is the wife of Pehu.

See Kaiwi's protest on page 565, N/T Vol. II, pending Makohikohi's document. [See claim 775]
