From "Santo Tomas" by Frederic Stevens:

Gordon Weatherstone MacKay (husband) (British)
Mela Kamakee MacKay (wife, 19?? - 1965, died in the Philippines)
Lydia Kawakee Vaughan (step-daughter)
Joan Kamakee C. MacKay (daughter)

(Lydia's middle name is misspelled in book. Correct spelling is Kamakee. It stems from Kamakee, the second wife of Chief Jonah Piikoi of Hawaii, who is a direct ancestor of this family.)

please let me, Tom Moore, know.
