It appears that Mary Anehe Mendonca was married the second time to a Mendonca relative of mine,Joseph Mendonca. She was a member of the "well Known" kamaaina family and the Daughters of Hawaii, as per her obit. Is there still a Daughters of Hawaii group?
Her children included Edward Sylva the former territorial Attorney General, Dr Francis K Sylva, former territorial senator and Joseph L Sylva, a former territorial senator.
She was 92 when she died. I also understand that Joseph Mendonca was at least a somewhat powerful businessman. He was suppose to have been a labor union rep who fought for Portugese and Chinese worker's rights. He also owned some buildings in Chinatown(Honolulu) and was part of a group that fought to get rid of the monarchy and "fought" for Hawaii to become a republic. I thought he might be in some local history books , but I do not know where to start on that! Anyonw have any advise? I would appreciate any help with any of this.
Thanks,
Renee
