Golfers

Image
My grandmother, Marion Ano was a top amateur golfer in Hawaii during the 1960's and 70's. Her father Paul Mahaulu and sisters also played, but weren't the first golfers in the family. That would be her grandfather, Judge Archibald Scott Mahaulu. He had grown up with Prince Jonah Kuhio and they were golfing buddies.

"After all of the unpacking and settling in Pualeilani, the active and sportsminded Cupid decided to take up the game of golf. Kuhio was one of the original players on Oahu, and his usual companion was an old friend, Judge Archie Mahaula. They played quite often and enjoyed the challenging links at Manoa and Haleiwa."~The Emply Throne, pages 105-106. *Notes:  Pualeilani was Kuhio’s residence in Waikiki.  Cupid was Prince Kuhio’s nickname.
Judge Archie Mahaulu’s name is misspelled in the book. Indexed as Mahaula.




Mahaulu's of Waialua

"This native Hawaiian, who, in our home, had been taught thrift and an honest way of living, was so attached to the family, that when our life duties had led us all away from home, he became the guardian of my father’s and mother’s graves.  Though not a great talker in the church, Paul Mahaulu Naahuelua, father of Judge Archid and Stephen Mahaulu, was one of Wailalua’s most enterprising and valued sons."~The Friend, May 1920, p.118. By a son of John and Ursula Emerson.

Naehuelua (k) married Huelali (w) on July 15, 1835, in Waialua, Oahu, Kingdom of Hawaii. They had a son named Mahaulu. High Chief Gideon Peleioholani Laanui was the ruling chief of Waialua and a was a grandnephew of Kamehameha I. Naehuelua was a calabash maker for the chief, but around when Mahaulu was about 14, he lost his job and Mahaulu went to Rev. John S. Emerson for work.


John S. Emerson and his wife Ursula, were the first missionaries sent to the Waialua community. They arrived in Honolulu on May 17, 18…

George Kalauohe

George Kalauohe is an ancestor or a relative, but there's not enough information to place him in the family.  He is related somehow to my Great grandmother Emma K. Hiram Fern.  She mentions him in the kanikau* of her daugther Emma Lahela.  In it she writes "E Maunalua e, ...ua ike ae nei papa on i kuu lei ia Emma, ua hell auk la paha mauka o Kamilokapu e ike i kahi ana i holoholo ai, aloha kahi a kuu lei i noho ai me kuu hamaumua, Mr. G. Kalauohe, ua hele mua aku oia."  It was translated as "Oh Maunalua, perhaps you have seen my child Emma, going to the uplands of Kamilokapu**, the beloved place my child stayed with my first-born, Mr. G. Kalauohe, who had first come here."  So it seems it's her 1st born son right?  Well there's a couple problems with that.  The records I have found have all said Emma only had 9 children and George wasn't one of them.  Emma was born in 1872 and in 1898, there is a notice in the newspaper about trespassers being prose…

Emmeline & Ethel

Here is an obit for my great granduncle.... HAIKU, JAMES LOUIS, 57, of 3247 Kaunaoa St., born in Honolulu, March 18, 1890, died in Honolulu, May  5, Friends may call at AKANA’S NUUANU FUNERAL PARLORS from 6 to 9 p.m. , Today, May 6, and after 8 a.m. , Wed., May 7.  Services, 1:15 p.m., Wed. at the chapel of the mortuary under the auspices of the Pentecostal Gospel.  Procession leaves at 2 p.m. for burial in the Diamond Head Memorial Park.  Survived by son, Antonio Haiku; stepson, Thomas Fern; daughter, Mrs. Julia Shilhan; 2 stepdaughters, Mrs. Beatrice Kahoiwai and Mrs. Amy Cruz; 11 grandchildren; 2 sisters, Emmaline and Ethel.  He was a City & County Gov’t employee.
In it, it mentions 2 sisters, Emmaline and Ethel.  So for years and years, we've been searching for these two, but without surnames, it very difficult to find them.  The break came when the 1940 census was released and we found James Louis Haiku age 52, living as a lodger with Charles Atkins age 34, head of househo…

Conflicting dates: Samuel Silva

Image
Cousin Connie recently brought to my attention the World War I registration card of our Great Granduncle, Samuel Antone Sabino Silva.  On it he states he was born Oct. 11, 1889.  I have him being born Oct. 11, 1892.  Which one is it?

His dates:

-1910 census, Cummins St., he is 17, living with his sister Rebecca and her husband Obed Kaai, the head of household.  Estimated birth year: 1893.  Him, his sister and nieces are noted as 'Chinese', but this is wrong.  CH is caucasian/hawaiian in the Hawaii census, but CH is Chinese in the US census.


-31 Jul 1917-World War I registration card he states he was born Oct. 11, 1889 (28 yrs)


-11 Oct 1917-Marriage certificate of Samuel Silva to Esther Kaialiilii, he is age 24, estimated birth year 1893.

-1920 census (he appears twice).
1) With step father Joseph James Fern & family, he is age 28, estimated birth year 1892.
2) As head of household, he is age 31, estimated birth year 1889.

-8 Aug 1928, voter application.  Samuel Silva of 35…
