Can anyone tell me if the Sun Life Insurance agency is still around in Honolulu ?
I had a relatuive who lived in Honolulu... in Blaisdele H??? Fort Street, Honoluly in 1919, (I have a County Registration saying this) He came from Scotland.
Was born July 1875... in I think Glasgow, Parents were William Hair and Martha Ellis Baillie...He went to Honolulu in the early 1900's and worked all his life (that we know) for the Sun Life Insurance.
I believe he did marry a schoolteacher while living there, which ended in divorce.
Is there anyone that can give me ay further information on this man > PLEASE..

In the five year old Oahu white and yellow pages that I have here in San Diego, there is no Sun Life Insurance company.

In the white pages there are only a few people with the last name Hair. I would call them.

Hair, Archie 942-1632
Hair, Gregory 61-180 lkuwai Pl 637-4243
Hair, Shane 677-1739
Different Spelling:
Haire, David 44-160 Hako St. Kaneohe 235-9520

Hank

His WW-I draft registration gives the information you have, as to address.
His birthdate is July 28,1875.
He was an insurance agent for Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada.. ..address is hard to read but it looks like Bethal St, Honolulu. They are still doing business in Hawaii.
Department of Commerce & Consumer Affairs - State of Hawaii - Search Results

He was a naturalized citizen (US Court, Honolulu, May 1906), medium height, stout build, brown eyes and grey hair (in 1918).

1910 census show him as single, head of household, Hawaii, and lists his year of immigration as 1897.
Found ship manifest - Robert Hair, born 1875 arrived in New York 5 Sep 1897 on the ship City of Rome which sailed from Glasgow, Scotland. His occupation is listed as "clerk" and last residence as Glasgow.

-Can't find him in the 1920 census
1930 census shows him as a lodger in Honolulu, no wife or children living with him.

Oct 26, 1928 he sailed from Honolulu on the S.S. Malolo Voy 24, arriving in San Francisco Oct 31. His marital status is listed as single.

A Mrs. Robert Hair sailed from Honolulu to San Francisco in Oct 1916. The record doesn't give her first name so I can't trace her.

Didn't find an obit or a Social Security death record, but that's not uncommon if he was single, no heirs.

Not much available on him..... Hawaii doesn't share vital records.
