I was doing a google search for some information on my great-great grandparents ( William and Ekekele Brede) and your post came up!
I am descended from Marie Marae Hakaleleponi Brede: Marie married Samuel Kenneth Bishop. Their son, Kenneth Francis Bishop, was my grandad and his daughter, Lynda Leilani Bishop, is my mother.
I will be visiting my family in a week and will have access to my mom's family photos. I will post pictures of Marie Brede and my grandad, Kenneth, as soon as I get them.
I had a question - I see that you are descended from Marie's brother, Charles...was he your great grandfather? When I was younger my grandad's cousin, Emma Kinolau, used to come visit us in California every couple of years. Her children, David and Kamaile would also come with her. I'm not sure who Aunt Emma's mother and father were. I know she and David died quite awhile ago. I haven't seen or spoken to Kamaile in many years.
My great-grandmother's sister (I believe) visited once. We called her Aunt Denny, so I'm not sure if she was Dora Brede? I will have to ask my mom....I do remember Grandma Marie was crying tears of joy and it was the first time I ever saw anyone cry from being happy and not sad!
I am married and have two sons, Michael and Luke. Michael is a junior in college and our youngest, Luke, just left the nest to start his freshman year at college. :( I will post a family picture as soon as I can.
Can't wait to hear from you!!!

Thanks same to you and your beautiful family!
I had heard that William Brede worked as some type of engineer at a sugar plantation/factory. While doing searches on Ancestry.com I came across some patent applications that William Brede applied for. ( By the way, someone has started a family tree on the ancestry website for William and Ekekela Brede.)
I'm very interested in Ekekela's history as I know nothing about her. I had never heard the name of Keawehano before...I will do some searches to see what comes up. If you have anymore info on Ekekela I would love to hear about it.
Since I was a child, I had always heard that my great grandma Marie Brede was one of the first telephone operators in Hawaii. I came across an interview of her in one of the Hawaiian newspapers , apparently the telephone operators had gone on strike. I will try to find the article again and post a link to the article.
Also, in one of my earlier posts I mentioned an Aunt Denny who came to visit us in California many years ago. After talking to my mom, it turns out Aunt Denny was my Grandma Marie's niece and not her sister as I thought.
It was wonderful to hear from you...I will post any new info I can find and you do the same, ok!
