Comments:looking for info on walter and mary Hoopii and the kanoho family of maui

Our Hoopii was the son of Nohua from Kaupo. There are more Hoopii families from different patriarchs. One is Hoopii Son of Kekahuna, and another is Hoopii son of Naniho both originally from Peahi.

Name:Thomas Kaaiai Jr.
Location:Kaaawa, Oahu
Comments:The Sol Hoopii in our family is the steel guitar player that passed away in Seattle Washington in 1953. His full name is Sol Hoopii Kaaiai, but he dropped the Kaaiai for as an entertainer. I am told by my mom that we are related but I have yet to make the genealogy connection. I shall show this to mom and get back to you. Aloha,

Although we've never met you, I'm familiar with your Mom & Dad. You & my mom are 1st cousins.

Comments:Aloha. Terrific website. I am writing a book on the so-called Massie Case (you have an article of mine posted on your site) and, although the book will be finished in a couple of months, I'm still seeking information on Joseph Kahahawai and/or his family. A terrible tragedy befell them--and, of course, Joe was completely innocent--but personal info has been hard to come by. Also, does anyone possibly have photographs of him or of the family from that time that they'd be willing to share? Thus far, the only photo of Joe that I can find is his police mug shot, and I'd like to use something more flattering. Any other info will be most appreciated too. (By the way, there may be an error in something on your site. You list John Kahahawai as Joe's "younger brother" and have him getting remarried in 1917. But Joe was born in 1910 . . . so it's difficult to see how his younger brother--who would have to have been less than 7 years old in 1917--could be getting remarried at that time.

Thank you for sharing so much information on the story of Joseph Kahahawai.

If your Makekau ancestors are from Lahaina Maui we are probably related, it's just a matter of finding out who your Grandparents/Great grandparents were.

Comments:I am looking for the grandchildren or anyone related to Sol Hoopii. My dad who is 91 played the steel-guitar with Sol in the 30's and 40's. We are taking my dad to Maui at the end of May and would like to contact relatives of Sol Hoopii. If you have any information that might help me, please let me know as soon as possible. thank you so much Roselee Bogosian

How exciting it would be to meet your family, I beleive Sols' real last name was Kaai'ai and it was shortened to Hoopii as a stage name.
