Two Friends … Fellow Adventurers

The older was born February 25, 1821 in Sandy Hill, New York (In 1910, the village's name was changed to Hudson Falls.)  Stone quarried from there was used to construct the Brooklyn Bridge (1883.)  The younger was born January 25, 1822 in Glens Falls, New York, about 3-miles away; his father was a toll collector who worked on a toll booth in the middle of the Hudson River.

The older, William Little Lee, was the first Chief Justice of the Superior Court (1847-52) and then the Supreme Court (1852-57.)  The younger, Charles Reed Bishop, was primarily a banker (he has been referred to as "Hawaiʻi’s First Banker.”)  He met and married Bernice Pauahi in 1850.
