A genealogy for S.L.K. Peleioholani, by another genealogist, appeared in a long running series of newspaper articles on the genealgies of the chiefs in the newspaper Ka Makaainana. These articles ran in 1896 and were run weekly. The installment on Oct 5, 1896 included a section entitled "Ko Solomona Lehuanui Ma". It is filled with very severe errors. Ironically, Peleioholani would publish his great genealogy masterpiece in this same paper 7 years later in 1903.

Elizabeth Kekumano (Kekumanomanookekapu) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 was born on 17 Dec 1853 in Kona-Kailua, Hawaii, Hawaii. She died on 4 Jul 1914 in Honolulu, Hawaii. She married Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheuila Peleioholani (Peleioholani IV).

S.L.K. Peleioholani has a lot to say about the lineage of his wife, Elizabeth Kekumano in his manuscript "The Story of Kamehameha". Most important to him ssems to be the fact that her family is the family of the Kahoalii (Akua-o-Kamehameha), the "Kahoalii" being a ritually significant person who acted out the role of god in important ceremonies, this one was apparently the Kahoalii of Kamehameha and therefore important to his rise to power.

From genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheilu Peleioholani (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena):
Look again at Kalaniopuu (k) who married Manoua (w) of Ka'u, and Manono (w) was born, the own grandmother of Kekumano (w), Mrs. Peleioholani, of North Kona, Hawaii.

Manono-a-Kalaniopu'u is the grandmother of Elizabeth Kekumano.

They had the following children:

  F i Annie Kahalelehuaokeaweokahikonaihailikulamanu Kaonohiulaokalani Peleioholani was born on 18 Aug 1886. She died on 1 Jun 1957.
  F ii Kaenaokalani Peleioholani 1 was born in 1882 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheuila Peleioholani (Peleioholani IV) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 was born on 11 Feb 1844 in Hilo, Hawaii, Hawaii. He married Malie Kalauao Honuakaha. He had other parents.

Malie Kalauao Honuakaha.Malie married Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheuila Peleioholani (Peleioholani IV).

They had the following children:

  F i Harriet Kahahana Peleioholani (Hattie) was born on 19 Jun 1874.

Kamakaolani (Kamakaolani II) [Parents] 1 was born about 1819 in Paauilo, Hamakua, Hawaii, Hawaii. He married Keakealani.

This is hanai father of Solomon Peleioholani.

Both Kamakaolani and his wife Keakealani are listed as having Keliipupuka as their father. It is unclear who is the real child and who is the inlaw child of Keliipupuka.

Keakealani [Parents] 1 was born about 1823 in Paauilo, Hamakua, Hawaii, Hawaii. She married Kamakaolani (Kamakaolani II).

This is hanai mother of Solomon Peleioholani.

Both Kamakaolani and his wife Keakealani are listed as having Keliipupuka as their father. It is unclear who is the real child and who is the inlaw child of Keliipupuka.

They had the following children:

  M i Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheuila Peleioholani (Peleioholani IV) was born on 11 Feb 1844.

George Alika Hussey Jr. [Parents] 1, 2 was born on 9 Apr 1879 in Waipio Valley, Hamakua, Hawaii. He was christened in LDS Blessing. He died on 1 Aug 1919 in Waipio Valley, Hamakua, Hawaii. He was buried on 2 Aug 1919 in Waipio Valley, Hamakua, Hawaii (Family Cemetery). He married Ellarene Kapapaihaleonaalii (Papaihaleonaalii) Kaawa (Moi Kaawa).

Ellarene Kapapaihaleonaalii (Papaihaleonaalii) Kaawa (Moi Kaawa) [Parents] [scrapbook] 1, 2, 3, 4 was born on 12 Nov 1881 in Waiohinu, Ka'u, Hawaii. She was christened in LDS Blessing. She died on 28 Feb 1946 in Honolulu, Hawaii. She was buried on 5 Mar 1946 in Daimond Head, Honolulu, Hawaii. She married George Alika Hussey Jr..

Other marriages:
Keomaka, Fred Kama Sr.

The mother of Waipio Valley Hussey clan and also the Wapio Valley Keomaka clan and the Moi family of Waipio Valley is Ellarene Kapapaihaleonaalii (Papaihaleonaalii) Moi Kaawa, or "Tutu Papa'i".

Tutu Papa'i had a total of 16 children. Twelve children were from her first marriage to George Alika Hussey (Jr.). Four children were from here second marriage to Fred Keomaka.

Her second husband Fred Keomaka was the step-brother of her first husband George Alika Hussey (Jr.).

After George Alike Hussey Jr.'s mother Keaweiwi died, his father (George Sr.) remarried to Kealoha Keomaka (nee Naholowaa), also a widow.

Kealoha brough her son by Joe Keomaka, a boy named Fred Keomaka, into the Hussey ohana with her marriage to George Alike Hussey, Sr.

When Fred Keomaka's stepbrother, George Hussey Jr., died, he left behind a wife (Tutu Papa'i) with many children. Needing a husband, Tutu Papa'i remarried this man, the step-brother of her dead husband, who would have been a kind, familiar face who was already well integrated into the extended Hussey ohana.

Five of her children from George Alika Hussey Jr. died in infancy. We believe these children are among the many dead who rest in small unmarked graves in the Hussey family cemetery in Waipio Valley (now owned by the Kekoolani Family Trust).
These Hussey children who died in infancy are:
Mary Hussey
Hannah Hussey
Samuel Hussey
Peter Hussey
John Hussey

All of her children by Fred Keomaka survived to adulthood.

For unknown reasons, the last names of the Keomaka children do not always clearly indicate their relation to the families of Keomaka (father) or Kaawa/Moi Kaawa (mother). It seems a contraction of "Moi Kaawa"--the name "Moi"---became a new family name.

The original confusion between "Kaawa" and "Moi Kaawa" dates back to Tutu Papai's generation. However, the genealogy of her Ka'u ohana lineage clearly shows that the original proper name for her family is "Kaawa". "Moi" was simply the middle name of her father Wahinekloa Kaawa, but accidently became grafted on to "Kaawa" to form "Moi Kaawa", which was thought to be Tutu Papa'i's last name for many years. Then finally the "Kaawa" was dropped by her children and the name "Moi" became the last name of two branches of the family.

In addition, one of the Keomaka children, Frederick, took the name "Hussey", since he was most likely hanai to one of Tutu Papa'i's older children.


The descendants of Frederick Kama Moi and Jane Keomaka Moi descend from the Kaawa and Keomaka familes. There is no historic Moi family before their generation.

They had the following children:

  F i Emily Kaelehiwa Hussey was born on 20 May 1907. She died on 9 Sep 1953.
  F ii Louisa Manaiaokalani Hussey was born on 1 Apr 1899. She died on 12 Jul 1975.
  M iii William Lono Hussey was born on 4 Jun 1901. He died on 10 Oct 1972.

  M v Albert Muller Hussey Sr. was born on 23 Jul 1911. He died on 14 Aug 1951.
  M vi George Hussey III was born on 8 Nov 1916. He died on 9 Aug 1964.
  F vii Jennie Kahanohano Hussey was born on 16 Dec 1897. She died on 7 Jun 1927.

Nanaulu (Nana'ulu) [Parents] 1, 2, 3 was born about 452 in the Kii-Nanaulu-Ulu Genealogy. He married Ulukou (Ulukaee).

Other marriages:
Kapumaleolani (Kapomaleolani),

Traditional from Nanaulu Geneaolgy as told by Malo, Kamakau, Forander.

Ulukou (Ulukaee) 1, 2 was born about 452 in the Ulu Genealogy. She married Nanaulu (Nana'ulu).

This is the generally listed mate for Nanaulu. Traditional from Nanaulu Geneaolgy as told by Malo, Kamakau, Forander.

They had the following children:

  M i Nanamea (Nana-mea).

Puna (Puna-i-mua) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 was born about 782. He married 6 Hinalauohia (Ha'inalaumaikalani, Ha'i-nalau-mai-ka-lani, Ha'i-nalu).

Ancestor of the O'ahu and Kauai chiefs. "Puna-i-mua" is the name used by S.M. Kamakau.

Most genealogies say that Hina-ai-ka-malama is the mother of Hema and Puna-i-mua. S.L.K. Peleioholani teaches that ancient tradition that Aikanaka married his sister Hinaaikamalama (Hinahanaiakamalama) ("Niau Pi'o" chiefly marriage) and then his daughter from that marriage, Hinawaikolii (a "Naha" or "Ho'i" chiefly marriage). AIkanaka had a daughter by Hina-ai-ka-malama named Hina-waikoli'a. He married this daughter. That is another kind of chiefly "pi'o" narriage (tha father and daughter). This daughter Hinawaikolii is the true mother of Hema and Puna-i-mua.

This teaching is from the Robinson Family genealogy.

Hinalauohia (Ha'inalaumaikalani, Ha'i-nalau-mai-ka-lani, Ha'i-nalu) 1, 2, 3, 4. married 5 Puna (Puna-i-mua).

Ha'ina-lau-mai-ka-lani is the name given by Kamakau in Ruki9ng Chiefs,

They had the following children:

  M i Ua (Uamaikalani, Ua-mai-ka-lani).
  F ii Kahilinai (Kahiliokalani, Kahili-o-ka-lani, Ka-hilina'i).

Hakau (Hakau-o-Liloa) (King of Hawaii) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 was born about 1626 in the Ulu-Hema Genealogy (Big Island). He married 6, 7 Kukukalani-o-Pae.

Kukukalani-o-Pae [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4. married 5, 6 Hakau (Hakau-o-Liloa) (King of Hawaii).

They had the following children:

  F i Pinea (the 2nd).
  M ii Hoe 1.

Keawenui-a-Umi (Mo'i, Ruler of Hawaii by Conquest) [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 was born about 1648 in the Ulu-Hema Genealogy. He married 8 Kamolanui-a-Umi (Kamolanuiaumi, Kamola-nui-a-Umi).

Other marriages:
Kawaihalaniwailuau, (Kawaihalau, Koihalauwailaua, Koihalawai, )
Kane-'alai (Kane-a-La'e, Haokalani, Kane-alae, Ha-o-kalani, Haokalani), (Ruling C OM
Ho'opiliahae (Ho'opili-a-Ha'e),
Hakaukalalapuakea,
Unknown
Aihakoko (Amauakoko, Ai-hākōkō, Amauaikookoo),

Keawenui-a-Umi seized power as Ruler of Hawai'i Island when his brother Kealiiokaloa died. The rightful heir Kukailani (son of Kealiiokaloa) was still a child. Keawenui-a-Umi eventually killed Kukailani, the legitimate king, and Kukailani's eldest son Prince Makakaualii. The six existing district chiefs of Hawaii (the Alii-ai-moku of Hilo, Hamakua, Puna, Ka'u, Kohala, and Kona) all rebelled and were defeated. Keawenui's reign marked the replacement of all these chiefly families with new family lines, related to Keawenui-a-Umi. Therefore, most if not all the chiefs of Hawaii, can usually trace their lineage back to the family of Umi, since this replacement of all the district chiefs during the reign of Keawenui-a-Umi re-set the lineages.

Keawenui-a-Umi ruled the BIg Island as conqueror king, under the waiting eye of Kukailani's survviving daughter Kaikilani-Nui-Alii-Wahine-o-Puna, who later herself ruled the island. She, in turn, ended up marrying Keawenui's three sons by Kawaihalau (Koihalauwailaua) the sacred chiefess of Kauai. These sons were Kanaloakuaana, Kanaloakuakawiea and Kanaloakapulehu. She had issue by them.
