00-4 Akina, Crawford I'm looking for information on a JOSEPH H. CRAWFORD,who was born in Honolulu in 1901 (?). I think his fathers name was Joseph, too and I was told that he worked for the Territory of Hawaii in some type of official position (1920s). Maybe a clerk? His mothers name was Elizabeth. CRAWFORD was her 2nd marriage. Her first was to AKINA. I was told that she had 10 children by each of her husbands. He was of Hawaiian descent. Because of the surname, his mother must have been the one of Hawaiian origin, but not sure.

He was in Carthage, Missouri in the early 1920s. He married a MAY ALLEN in 1922, in El Dorado, Kansas. The marriage license states his place of birth as Hunter, Hawaii? (possible mistake?). He was a musician. He played the ukelele/guitar and sang in a traveling carnival during the 1920's, in the mid west. His last known whereabouts was in Webb City, Jasper County, Missouri. Don't know if he ever returned to Hawaii, but must have a lot of family living there. I'm new at this search for ancestors and will appreciate any help I can get.

00-3 Kahakalau, Kakanui Seeking any record or contact source regarding my grandfather: William (Kahanui?) KAHAKALAU. My father's birth cert. states grandfather born in Honolulu. I estimate abt 1893, based upon grandfather's death cert which states he was 62 at time of death (Feb. 1949 ). There is no date of birth on any documents and parents are listed on death cert as unknown.

Tutu told my mother he was from Kalihi-he said he lived with his grandmother. Tutu was a musician, he had a beautiful singing voice, played several instruments and taught music (in Boston) Tutu left the Islands abt 1914 (I could be off several years on this). My Uncle, his first child, was born in Boston in Feb.1917, so allowing for a marriage to take place a little before that in the states, it's for sure Tutu KAHAKALAU was here in 1916 (at least). Any information I can obtain from this posting would be so greatly appreciated. Mahalo.

97-8 deLuna, Eyarez, Luna We are trying to begin a search on our family name of LUNA. Originally they were from Manila, Philipines, Simplicio DeLuna immigrated to Hawaii (Oahu) around 1917. His soon to be wife, Martina EYAREZ, immigrated a few months later.

The family story tells of the name changing from DeLuna to Luna on the official immigration papers for Hawaii (we are uncertain of when the change truly took place.) Simplicio and Martina worked in the pineapple fields outside of Wahiawa (Oahu) Hawaii and gave birth to several children.

A few names of those children are Alfredo (my father-in-law), Bernard, Natividad (unsure of spelling), Emmanual and Rose. We would appreciate any help in tracing this name back to the Philipines. Thank you.
