During 1993, I became friends with Keith Robinson (born 1941), the co-owner, with his brother, Bruce Robinson, of Ni‘ihau, and a descendant of Eliza Sinclair, who purchased Ni‘ihau on Jan. 20, 1864, from Kamehameha V in the names of her two sons for $10,000, as indicated in Royal Patent No. 2944, dated Feb. 23, 1864.
