No. 45, John R. Von Pfister

Testimony of G.P. Judd: The King gave me the property which is at Lahaina before Keohokalole consented to do so. Keohokalole said that the property is for Keohokalole, and not for the King.

Z. Kaauwai's sworn testimony:
Question: For whom is the Ahupuaa (division of an island for landholding purposes) at Paeohi?

Kaauwai: For Keohokalole, and a portion in there was granted to Opakahelu.

Question: How long did Keohokalole live there?

Kaauwai: A very long time since the time of his grandfolks. The first time Opakahelu mentioned about it was when he had a lease with Kapaakea. Kapaakea said that the King had it and the King said that Kaeohokalole had it.
