She was a member of the House of Laʻanui, a collateral branch of the House of Kamehameha. Her children (except her two daughters by Cartwright) and male-line descendants belong paternally to the Wilcox family.
As a child, she would often go to the palace of King Kamehameha V to make leis for him. She was married four times, although she only had children from her first and second marriages. She was one-eighth French (via her great-grandfather Jean Baptiste Rives) and the rest Hawaiian descent. After her parents died in 1871, she was adopted by her aunt Elizabeth Kekaʻaniau Pratt.
