The Moku Nu'a Line

This is the  ancestry line of my Paternal Grandmother Martha Kahailani Moku Sniffen. At this time we are only able to trace this line back to Nu'a. According to history, Nu'a was probably the Chief  that killed Captain Cook in 1779. This obviously was not our Nu'a as he was born in 1797, eighteen years after that event.  It is possible that the Chief was either his father or Grandfather..
