Malo Bruce. Good to meet you. You are so lucky to have Aunty Lily to talk with. My mum, Heather Hughan, asked for you to please say a big hello to her next time you speak. I have started recording mum's memories too. According to her, our relations were always really surprised at how much your mum looked like my great grandmother, Kale. I have a lovely photo of her and her daughters, if you would like to see it. Quite a few of Kale's siblings died in the flu epidemic in Samoa around 1918. Which sister was your gg grandmother? I was given a family tree by Aunty Loa Scott.
Like Caroline/Kale/Kalele/Carrie, Lily is quite a popular name in our family. I remember a beautiful girl called Lily who ran the store at Falealili in the 1970s when we lived in Samoa for a time and used to go down to the village to stay in the school holidays. I hope Aunty Lily knows something about Captain Roberts as my searching has not been successful at all. We went to look at his grave (and Kale and Eseta's) at Vaovai and my cousin says the graves survived the tsunami. Hope to hear from you soon. Take care, Rowan
