Cl. 6245, Kalaeokekoi, 3 April, 1851, Counter 11029, John Stevenson, See 236 volume 10

H.H. [His Honor?], John Young, sworn, I know Kalaeokekoi, now dead. He lived in Honolulu & died 21 October 1849. I was present when he died, also the King, Queen, Governor Kekuanaoa & others.

The lands of Kalaeokekoi at his death consisted of the Ili of Kamakela in Honolulu & the Ahupuaa of Lapahoehoe in Hamakua, Hawaii. Formerly these lands belonged to the King, who gave them to Kapokini who sailed with Boki & then gave them to Haalilio. Haalilio, when he went abroad, gave them to the King and the King gave them to Kalaeokekoi, child of Kapokini by Keaka. Kalaeokekoi was 25 years or more of age. I do not know who is the heir of Kalaeokekoi, but I have heard the King was his heir, & that Mrs St. John was, and also that Nakookoo, mother of St. John's wife, was the true heir.

The land stood on the books of the Home Office as Kalaeokekoi's & now stands so, but Stevenson's wife, Nakookoo, has had charge of the same from time of Kapokini. I heard Stevenson had a lot in Kamakela, but I do not know of what character. He lived part of the time there, & part at Lahaina. I do not know whether Moa or Nakookoo was present at the time of Kalaeokekoi's death. ....

No. 6245, Kalaeokekoi /for Kalakini/, Honolulu, April 3, 1851

John Young, sworn, I have known Kalaeokekoi; he is now dead. He had lived here in Honolulu and died on October 21, 1849. I was there at the time of his death and so were the chief, chiefess and the governor, Kekuanaoa. However, I did not hear the bequest by Kalaeokekoi nor did I hear the chief ask a question but I have seen his lands since the Mahele of 1848. They are the Kamakele ili in Honolulu and Laupahoehoe in Hawaii and these were from the King. These lands were acquired by Kapokini from the King and at the time he had gone on a trip with Poki, he directed /his interest/ to Haalilio, his young brother. When Haalilio went to Tahiti, he returned all of these sections of land to the King who during the 1848 Mahele gave these lands to Kalaeokekoi, the son of Kapokini with another woman, named Keaka. I have not know his heir nor the land distribution of J. Stevenson's interest. It was customary for the natives to have residents' rights on the land because Nakookoo has custody of this land from the time of Kapokini, Haalilio and Kalaeokekoi to the present time. I have seen Stevenson live there continuously and I have heard he had received a parcel of land during the lifetime of Kalaeokekoi, altho' I have never gone there, nor have I know that he had a house lot or a garden; perhaps it is not known.

No. 6245, Kalaeokekoi, 16 June 1853, for Keaka, See page 241, volume 10, page 763, vol. 3

Nohea (female), sworn, I have seen his house lot at Makalaukalo of Hananakapuaa in Lahaina, Maui.

The boundaries are:
Mauka by a pond
Olowalu by husband of Kapoli, Namauu's land
Makai by sea, beach
Kaanapali by Nohea's place.

This lot to Keaka from Nohea and her husband at the time of Liliha's death in 1839 nd he has been living there peacefully to the present time, they have given this place outright to Keaka.

Kelaeokekoi is a nephew son for Keaka and he had registered this land in his name for Keaka. Kalaeokekoi, here (Keaka) nephew has died and Keaka, his aunt has this land. It was not bequested to the heirs of Kalaeokekoi because it was not his own land. It was for Keaka.
