DOLE (1844-1926) was the head of the revolutionary provisional government after Queen Liliuokalani was deposed in 1893. Dole was the only President of the Republic of Hawaii (1894-1900) and the first Governor of the U.S. Territory of Hawaii (1900-1903). From 1904 to 1915, he served as Judge of the U. S. District Court for Hawaii. ANNA CATEDOLE (1841-1918), born Anna Prentice Cate, married Sanford Dole, the first and only President of the Republic of Hawaii, in 1873. They were married until his death. Scottish-born JAMES A.KENNEDY came to Hawaii in 1880 and was associated with the Honolulu Iron Works before becoming president and general manager of Inter-Island Steam Navigation Co, a shipping company that primarily did business between the Hawaiian Islands. His son, Stanley Kennedy, Sr., transformed the company into Hawaiian Airlines, with its first flight in 1929. A Son of the American Revolution, FREDERICK JEWETTLOWREY was a merchant with fingers in a lot of pies in Hawaii. He was president of Lewers & Cooke, Ltd., originally a hardware and lumber company, as well as president of the Oahu Sugar Company, the Waiahole Water Company, the Hawaiian Board of Missions and the Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce and vice-president of the Honolulu Gas Company. Lowrey also served numerous positions within the Hawaiian government. Journalist and educator THEODORERICHARDS published the Hawaiian newspapers The Friend, the Hawaiian-language Ka Hoaloha, the Chinese Yau Bo and the Filipino Ang Abyan. He was also treasurer of the Hawaiian Board of Missions. Lawyer PHILIP L.WEAVER (1868-1927) practiced in the California Superior Court before moving to Honolulu in 1897. He was assistant to the Attorney General of the Territory of Hawaii and, from 1912 to 1913, was first deputy county attorney of the City and County of Honolulu. Weaver also wrote the Land Registration Act. HENRY F. WICHMAN (1866-1921) was a jeweler who formed Gomes & Wichman with J. E. Gomes in Honolulu in 1887. He bought out Gomes in 1888 and, in 1903, incorporated his company as H. F. Wichman & Company, Ltd. This company still does business in Hawaii. WILLIAM M.KINCAID lived in Hawaii for eight years.
