There are so many genealogical charts that show our bloodline relationship through our Grandmother, Lois Kapule Montgomery. This relationship include ties to King Kamehameha I, King Kaumuali'i as well as different high ranking ali'i's throughout the course of Hawaiian history. It is known that many stories have been written about King Kamehameha I, considered to be the greatest king at that time, however, there are also stories that he was cruel, mean to his people, yet showed favoritism towards the foreigners. especially when it came to the giving of land.
Like anything else, there is always two sides of a story and obviously I was not there during that time. I respect both sides of the stories, so having said that, I take great pride knowing that I am related to royalty from the past.
Great grandparents (David Kahanu and Kealiikuaaina) and Great Great grandparents (Alapai and Haha) from our Mom's side of the family.
Hugh Bowers Montgomery and Malia Kane are my Great grandparents from my Dad's side. James and Mrs. Montgomery are my Great Great GParents.
