Talofa lava/Hello Kealoha:

My gran' sends good wishes to you and to the Makuati(sp.)/Marquardt aiga/Family of Leone. (My gran' is on her way to Hawaii to escort a dearly departed back to Upolu for burial and I forgot to get Samoan spelling of Marquardt, do you know it?)

As far as the surnames UO and MOEFA'AUO, she's familiar with UO but "MOEFA'AUO may not be a surname but a male given name," - her exact words - "like I told you, tradition was to take a man's first/given name and it becomes a surname later in life."

"Sa'o!/Correct! The court papers, what it says "Vaipapa is communal land" of Leone." She says Vaipapa is not a village, it is land named for person/aiga/Family? (I'll have to check into this further) located in Leone, American Samoa. I need to talk to a lawyer/expert on land issues of Samoa, know anyone?

Now, I did happen on another data for:


Uo Sopoaga
b. 1869 Leone,Tutuila, , Samoa, Pacific Islands
m. 1893 Leone,Tutuila, , Samoa, Pacific Islands - (Vea)
parents: Tuiloua Ilaoa & Tui (not listed)

*It is suggested that the source listed is **only used** as a reference to further your research.

I didn't get a chance to share the surname Fa'amausili with my gran' but I can if need be. I will get on the land issues further. Maybe others on this forum will help out and share their thoughts also.

If there are specific questions you have for your line/lineage, let me know as I don't want to repeat what you may have already researched.
