Mary Ailau, daughter of Benjamin Pitman, one of Ililo's early pjo
ers passed away last Saturday evening at the home of Mrs. Cecelia
Arnold, from an attach of Apoplexy. Some two vears nuo she bml nno
stroke, from which she had not fully recovered. About two weeks ago
she was taken down with the grippe, aud was recovering from same,
when on last Tuesday she had her second stroke, affcctfng her left side.
Saturday evening about 6:30 she grew worse, when the Inst and final
stroke came, she living but twenty minutes. She was bom in March
1841, in Honolulu, receiving her education in the Hawaiian schools and
in the states. Shortly after her return to the Islands in 1883 she mar
ried Jack Ailau, a newspaper man and also a member of the Honolulu
Band. He died about ten years ago, leaving his widow ns his sole sur
vivor. She had been associated with the Victor girls in the curio shop
on Pitman Street near the Hotel, during the past few years. Her father
and grand father came here in about 1833, and ran a general merchan
dise store on one corner of the present Hotel grounds, the family home
stead being located where the Hotel is now located. Her mother was
Kinoole Hoolulu, an aunt of Admiral Beckley, and was one of the chief
tesses of Hawaii. Pitman became very wealthy out of the then flourish
ing whale business, which was centered arotitid the Islands, nnd when
Hoolulu died, he succeeded to the position of the king's representative
on Hawaii, having charge of all the royal, crown and public lands here.
He acquired considerable property, owning the whole of the Ptiueo
tract of 2,500 acres, and also about 300 acres of the Ponohawai tract,
commencing just above Pleasant Street aud running 2 miles up the Kau
mana Road. He also owned all the piece of property, where the Sprec
kels building now stands, aud which has been the subject of controversy
between C. E. Brown aud Sprockets for the past few years. As Pitman's
business increased he built a new store on the comer of Front and King
Streets, where the Ick Sing Company is now located, and continued in
business there until 1861 when he sold to Capt. Spencer. His store and
that of Geo. More, located where the Coney House now stands, were
the only two stores in the village during the lava flow of 1840, when
night was as bright as day in Hilo. He had three children by his Ha
waiian wife, Mary being the eldest. The second, Henry Pitman was
killed in the American Civil War, and Benj. F.Pitman, the youngest, is
now located in Boston, and is a member of the firm of L. P. Hollander
&C6. Pitman's second wife was Mai ia Kinney, who died before he
left the Islands. After his return to BoUou he again married, his wife
surviving him but a few years. Pitman Street, where the Hotel is lo
cated is named aftct this early pioneer. The funeral of Mrs. Ailau oc
curred Sunday afternoon at 3 p. m. from the home of Mrs. Arnold,
Rev. Mr. Stewart officiating, and .she was buried in the Hilo Cemetery,
She leaves no husbaud uor chlldreu.
