Georgfc Davis, as iio was buried on Sun
day last, was the son of George Hueu
Davis, the son of Isaac Davis, who with
John Young were companions in arms
with Kaniah.'imaha L His brother,
Isaac Young Davis, was the last hus
band of the late Princess Ruth.
Of the arrival of Isaac Davis in this
country. Professor Alexander in his
brief history says:
"About the end of the year 1789 Cap
tain Metcalf, an American fur trader,
in company with the snow ' Eleanor,"
visited the Inlands on his way to China.
His son, only eighteen years of age,
commanded a little schooner called the
'Fair American," which had be n de
tained by the Spaniards at Nootka
Near the end of February, 1790, the
"Eleanor" crossed the Hawaiian chan
nel and anchored off Honuaula, Maui.
There Kaopuiki, the chief of Olawalu,
with his men, stole a boat from its
moorings one night at the stern an:
murdered the sailor who was Bleeping
in it. When Captain Metcall
learned that the offenders came from
Oluwalu, he proceeded thither in tin
"Eleanor," and after a certain tabi.
was over resumed trade with the na
tives. A great number of canoes from,
far and near had crowded around his
ship, when suddenly a broadside of can
non and musketry was fired upon them,
and the waves were covered with dead
and dying. Over a hundred were killed
and many more wound- d.
After this cruel and wanton mas
sacre of innocent people, Captain Met
calf returned to Hawaii and lay off anci
on near Kealakekua Bay waiting for
the tender, which arrived about this
time off Kawaihae."
Kameeiamaku visited the easels
with a. fleet of canoes, as if to trade
and while the younger Metcalf was off
his guard threw him overboard and
massacred all the crew except the mate
Isaac Davis. The next day Young o:
the "Eleanor" found himself alone on
shore and was detained until the"Eh a
nor" left for China.
Both Davis and Young were treated
with gr at consideration by Kameh i
meha, but they were closely watched to
prevent their leaving.
Some time later Young and Davi
rend' red valuable assistance to Kame
hnmeha in conquering the tribes on
other parts of the Islands. Davis set
tled on Hawaii and married a high
When Vancouver came here and left
a lot of cattl they were placed on Ha
waii and the King put a tabu on them
for ten years. In some way one was ac
cidentally killed and Davis took the
beef to the natives and told them it was
beef. (He never learned Hawaiian.)
From that word came "pipi," because
they found it difficult to pronounce
Davis was responsible for the word
"kao" in reference to goats. He was
possessed of a fairly good cow and
some goats, but in the course of timo
the cow went dry and the old man used
goats' milk. Telling natives to milk the
goat he jokingly called ft a cow, and
the natives have since called a goat a
With his death ended the last of the
male members of the Davis family.
