Claim No. 236, Kaluahinenui, October 15 [1848]

Standing in the list No. 804, this being the first application.

John Ii, sworn stated, he knows the place which is East of Honolulu

Beretania St. is North
Kekenau's is East
Maalahia South and Kaavahua's
John Ii's and a water course, West.

Claimant has lived there since 1829. There is a fence, house, well & garden on it. Witness does not certainly know the ground of the claim, but at the time the claimant went to him the place was waste and it was then the custom to occupy any vacant spot near the Mission. Witness knows of no other claimant to the place; there are some living there as tenants.

Kalei, sworn, knows the place and confirms the boundaries just given by Mr. Ii. He knows of claimant living there since 1831. It is enclosed & built upon by claimant who has lived there from the first, and owned the place exclusively, and took it up as stated by Mr. Ii.

Freehold title voted.

.... ence. There are houses standing, four of them, two large ones and two small houses, besides a well that they had dug. Kaluahinenui had received this interest from Kekoa where she was living on the forward end of the heiau. It was from Kekoa to Kaluahinenui and Kekoa's interest was from Alapai and when Alapai had died Kaluahinenui had possession of the land because she was the wife of Alapai. No one has objected to her.

Lilinoe's lot is on the north
Hotel St. is on the east
John Meek's lot is on the south and
on the west are the lots of Kaeo and Kaaha.

One section (land) is on one side of the street with the following boundaries: on the north is Haelo's lot also Kawahakui's lot; on the south is the small street leading to Kamika's (Smith) school house and on the west side is Hotel Street.

Kamahele, sworn by the Word of God and stated, What I have known and have heard about this interest is the same as Maalahia has stated here. The knowledge that she has of a certain parcel that is on the other side of the street is the same as mine. I have also known her husband whose name was Alapai.

Namauu, sworn by the Word of God and stated, My knowledge is similar to that which has been given here by Maalahia. I had seen her husband thatching the house and building a fence. I have known Kaluahinenui since that time to this present time, no one has ever objected to her.
