Re: Blacks and Hawaii's Plantations

Thanks Allen. I have not had much luck in tracing what happened to the families or individuals that returned tothe main land.I suspect many ended somewhere in the West, but I am not sure. I do know that Samuel R. Maples, a lawyer came in 1901 either with his brother or later. His brother, William L. Maples, a Howard University Medical School graduate came as a physician from Tennessee and was the plantation doctor and ran the infimiry at Puunene. William and his family remained here and he retired from the sugar company. He and his family remained here until their deaths. Samuel R. Maples did not stay in mthe islandfs very long. I heard thaty he ended up in the San Francisco Bay area. I am hoping there will be readers of the Forum who might know some of these individuals who probably settled in the West or possibly returned to the Nashville and Montgomery areas.
