Mary Ailau, daughter of Benjamin Pitman, one of Ililo's early pjo ers passed away last Saturday evening at the home of Mrs. Cecelia neers 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.
