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 prosecuted in G. Kalauohe's fishing area.  If Emma had George at the earliest age of 14, he'd be about 12 years old in 1898, it's highly unlikely he'd be making that claim at that age.  I theorize that he is Emma's uncle and when she says first-born it's like the senior member in her family?  In the Hawaiian dictionary hanaumua is, n. First-born child, especially the eldest living member of the senior branch of a family; senior, older brother or sister.  So George could also be her older brother, but I haven't found any proof of that.  I also have not found any death or marriage records of any kind about G. Kalauohe.  In 1899 is the last time his name is mentioned in the newspaper.
My great-grandmother named her 1st born son George Kalauohe Ano.  The only other George Kalauohe I could find was on wikitree.com, he married Kapihi Kiiaweawe Kalauohi and they had one daughter, who married Mo'iha Mo'iha.  This is interesting because one of my genetic matches at 23andme has the surname MOIHA.

*kanikau. Dirge, lamentation, chant of mourning, lament; to chant, wail, mourn.  Ke Kanikau, The Lamentations (Biblical).

**kamilokapu.  This is a name not used anymore and I have yet to see it used in the past either.  The closest area to this is Kamilonui valley in Maunalua.

  1. Aloha kaua... "hanau mua" probably refers to a child born before, so her older brother...
