.... Kiapea, the husband of my friend. No one had objected to Kahula from the beginning.

N.T. 431v10
No. 2490, Kahula, 18 November 1854

Keo, sworn, I have seen this claim at Kahehuna, but this place was for Kiapea and Kahula was under him. This person has probably died and I have heard that Kiapea had transferred this place to Kaniho, his punalua because Kiapea's land had been from Kaniho anyway. Kahula's land had been from Kaniho and this was certified by the land officers. The boundaries are the same as Kapoi has related and since the time Kiapea had transmitted the land, to the present time, the heirs of Kaniho have retained this land. It is not with Kaniho, nor with Kahula and their heirs have not cultivated in the least to this day.
