Sourcing the Poole Line

One of my great grandmother's was Martha Kamaka Lua'ehu. Her parents were John Liona Lua'ehu, or Joseph/ John Pauahi Lua'ehu and Annie Elizabeth Poole....
I am trying to source Annie's line. I found some naturalization records for a Benjamin E. Poole and William Poole on the Office of Hawaiian Affairs Papakilo database. Annie's father is listed in new.familysearch as being one Benjamin E. Poole. However, something that corroborate more than just names within time periods but rather RELATIONS is needed. A census record showing Annie as the child of Benjamin would be an example, or her birth certificate....
Some of the data put into new.familysearch on this line appears to only corroborate names within a time period. For example, Benjamin E. Poole is listed as having a birth year of 1824 in Hollis, New Hampshire. When I look for records for someone with this name & data, I do find a match BUT I also find that this person died in New England, when our ancestor supposedly died in Hawai'i...unless they went back to New England....?...

I will continue looking...
