Researching families of Sandwich Island/Hawaii missionaries, 1820 from Boston ABCFM[American Bd of Commissioners Foreign Missions].

Journal by seeti

Amos and Juliette Montague Cooke arrived in Hawaii April 9, 1837 from Boston
aboard the Mary Frazier/Sumner; they were of the 8th Company of Congregational missionaries
sent from the ABCFM [American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions]....which still
maintains its headquarters in Boston, at 14 Beacon St.

By 1850 Amos Cooke and fellow missionary/passenger, Samuel Castle, had started the company
"Castle & Cooke" which is a worldwide firm today ...156 years later.

My interest lies with the missionary story and learning how it came to be that these
missionaries' sons' illegally took over Hawaii in 1893.....therefore, any knowledge re any of these families is of much interest.

Aloha from Maui where the research continues...
