    1930 United States Census - 1046 Kealaolu Avenue, Kahala, Hawaii
    1930 United States Census - 1046 Kealaolu Avenue, Kahala, Hawaii
    The 1930 U.S. census report shows Albert Wilkinson, age 33, a bank clerk [at the Bank of Hawaii] living with his wife Helen Wilkinson, age 26, and daughter Shirley Wilkinson, age 10 months. They own their home at 1046 Kealaolu Avenue, Kahala, Hawaii.

    1920 United States Census - 1261 Center Street, Honolulu, Hawaii
    The 1920 U.S. Census shows: Lily Wilkinson, head of household, owner of property, 43 years old, a widow, arrived in the U.S. in 1892, an alien, born in Switzerland, mother language French [seems doubtful, since she was from German Switzerland]. Lily is living with her sons Albert, age 23, a collector in a Bank; James, age 21, a machinist at the Iron Works; and Charles, age 14. All are shown to be "octaroons," which means "an offspring of a quadroon and a white parent; a person who is one-eighth black." Virtually everyone on this census sheet is shown to be an "octaroon," which is impossible.

    Sailing from Honolulu on 27 May 1925 to San Francisco. After Helen's vacation in Hawaii --- where she met Albert Wilkinson on a blind date --- she returned to San Francisco. She and Albert wrote letters to each other regularly: Albert had a friend in the post office so he could get the letters as quickly as possible. The idea was that they would stay apart for a year to see if it was true love: by Nov 1925 Helen sailed back to Honolulu, and married Albert on 17 Nov 1925.
