This claim has been partly heard before (See page 108)

Samuela Jackson, born in Madras, sworn, I know the land of the claimant. It is in Kainehe, Lahaina. It consists of a house lot and kula in one piece and a kalo land of 5 lois.

My wife, Aki, gave this land into the charge of Hookio [Kokio] in 1845, but the care of the land was all he had. He did not take proper care of the land. He did not plant it as he ought and he was told to leave it about two weeks ago. He said I will go for I have plenty of business in killing beef.

.... house belonged which he occupied.

Mahoe, sworn, says Aki (the konohiki) directed him to look for a hoaaina to cultivate her land. He did so & brought Kokio to her.

Disputed by Piikoi.

No. 6467!, Kakio, Cont. page 53
[Should be No. 6498]

Nakoaelua, sworn, He has seen Kakios interest in Kainehu ahupuaa of 5 patches and a pasture, the sections of the two parcels are:

Section 1 - Pasture.
Mauka by Hanakoo
Olowalu Nakoaelua's land
Makai by Road
Kaanapali by Puunoa?.

Section 2 - Taro.
Mauka by Kalimaole ?
Olowalu Pali
Makai by Stream
Kaanapali by Kahoma ?

Interest from Aki in 1845, it has been filed, no objections.

N.T. 53v5

No. 6498, Kokio, from page 2

Work has been done previously on this claim by Piikoi, Kokio had been in error in claiming this interest.

Keahina, sworn, He has seen these sections which Kokio had claimed, he (Kokio) has no interest here. Keahina's wife had given Kokio custody of the interest only, the interest belonged to Piikoi. Aki had given it to him in 1845, Kokio had been summoned before the land commissioners, but he had not responded. 1 house lot and a pasture.

Section 2 - 5 patches - 8 patches is absolutely correct.
