.... 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.

It is not with Kaniho, nor with Kahula and their heirs have not cultivated in the least to this day.
