From genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheilu Peleioholani (in Ancestry of John Liwai Ena):

Look at Kamalalawalu (k), who married Piilani (w) of the chiefly class of Hilo, Hawaii and Kualoa, Koolau, Oahu. Six chiefly children were born by Kamalalawalu o Maui that raised the chiefly ancestral lines of the chiefs of Maui of Kama.

(b) Kalakauaehuakama (k)
(c) Paikalakauaakama (k)
(d) Piilanikapokulaniokama (w)
(e) Ka'unohoikapelakapuokakae (w)
(f) Kekaikuihaiaokeku'imanono (w).

Some genealogies skip the generation of Wakalana (k.) & Kauai (w.) and have Alo descending directly from Lonomai. We follow Kamakau, who does not skip that generation.

ALTERNATE PARENTAL PAIRING: WAKALANA (k.) & NELEIKI (w.)

Neleiki was a foriegn woman, possibly a European, who may have arrived in Hawaii long before James Cook.

FROM FORNANDER:
Tradition records that a vessel called " Mamala" arrived at Wailuku [Maui]. The captain's name is said to have been Kaluiki-a-Manu, and the names of the other people on board are given in the tradition as Neleike, Malaea, Haakoa, and Hika. These latter comprised both men and women, and it is said that Neleike became the wife of Wakalana and the mother of his son Alo-o-ia, and that they became the' progenitors of a light-coloured family, "poe ohana Kekea," and that they were white people, with bright, shining eyes, "Kanaka Keokeo a ua alohilohi na mka." The tradition further states that their descendants were plentiful in or about Waimalo and Honouliuli on Oahu, and that their appearance and countenances changed by intermarriage with the Hawaiian people. ("An Account of the Polynesia People")

FROM KAMAKAU:
Here are some of the first haole to come to Hawai’i nei. They arrived during the time of Wakalana the chief of Maui and his wife Kaua’i. Some people say that it was during the time of Kaka’alaneo that these people arrived, while others say that it was Kukanaloa who arrived during the time of Kaka’alaneo. The ship came to Wailuku, Maui; it was the Mamala; the captain was Kuluikia-Manu, and on board were Masawell, Neleiki, Malaea, Ha’akoa, and Hika- some were men and some were women. It is said by some that Neleiki mated with Wakalana and that their child was Alo’oia, who became the chief after Wakalana; others say that Alo’oia was Kaua’i’s child. This was before the year AD. 900. They were perhaps the ancestors of the albino people, "kapo’e kekea". There are many of these people at Wai-mánalo in Honouliuli [Honolulu], O’ahu. Their features are different from other Hawaiians. ("Ka Moolelo o Kamehameha I")

FROM DEAN KEKOOLANI (January 2010):
According to the genealogies, Alo’oia is my 32nd great-grandfather. At 20 years a generation, the arrival of the foreign woman Neleike could have been in the 1400's as opposed to the 900's as calculated by Kamakau. This would make a European ship arrival in the Hawaiian Islands a possibility long before James Cook. Most people thinking aboutn this story have come up with theory that this was a vessel from China, perhaps blown off course in a storm. But the names do not make sense for that story. It is easier to believe that the boat was perhaps of Spanish or Dutch origin, having arrived in the Pacific via the European-Asian trading routes in the Indian Ocean (through Southeast Asia and up north through the South Pacific to Hawaii). The names could clearly be European: Masawell (Maxwell), Neleiki (Elizabeth, Nellie), Malaea (Maria).
