Descendants of Frederick Kama Keomaka Sr. used the last names "Moi", "Hussey" and "Keomaka". See notes on his mother Ellarene Kapapahaleonaalii Moi Kaawa information for more on names used in Waipio Valley in the Hussey and Keomaka ohanas.

Like his brother William, there was a period where Frederick Jr. was known as "Frederick Hussey".

Family Group Worksheet (Callejo) reports the following:
"Frederick, born with the last name Hussey. Mother married to Hussey. Hussey died, Keomaka lived with her. They had four kids and they grew up with the name Keomaka. Came to Honolulu, needed birth certificate to work. Birth certificate had Hussey, crossed out, and Moi written in as their last name.

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 Fred Kama Keomaka Sr..

Other marriages:
Hussey, George Alika Jr.

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.
