Keli’i Tau’a lives on Maui. I would also try the Mormon records as Taua were elders or leaders in the church as well. I recall some of the pili to the ohana (which I also share in): Jeremiah, Rutkowsky, Santos,
Wilhelm (east Maui, west O’ahu). Tau’a was one of the teachers for Keopulani’s children–you don’t have far to dig. Al Lagunero, Maui
Waipukua is noted as Kaahumanu’s puuhonua. This puuhonua is in Waihee. Also in this area is several of the alii retainers including Kaua (Taua) and Napulou, Makalawelawe, Kahalekai, and others.
I am a descendant of Kaua. What I know is that she traded her RP land in Lahina for 24 acres on the Waimea River on Kauai where she moved and later died. An after the fact probate says she left her land to Keoiki, and one month later Keoki sells the land to McBryde Sugar. A Judge Mc Bryde also signs the probate as the judge of the 5th circuit. Since Royal Patent land can’t be sold I am wondering if we can get it back from Robinson now. We are not the original holder of the Royal Patent since she traded it. I saw her probate and Keoki may have been her son. I am also heir to lands of Kane, Moa, Kalau, Namanu all on Kauai.
KauaTaua is recorded by my great great great grandfather, Alexander Alika Miller Mela, Jr…Kau Kau Ali’i Konohiki for Kamehameha III…as scion of Hubbel and Tavares Ohana, united to my Tilton Ohana! lptm
Hi Kamailani, my name is Leilani Correa Abreu. My great, great grandfather was John Kahaiolelo Kaua (1836-1921). He lived in Hana, Maui in the area known as Koali. I’m hoping we can find a connection between Iokepa Ponopake Kaua and John Kahaiolelo Kaua. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
