I like a good mystery, so will try to help in "pieces". I will start with your general questions.
There are Wisconsin State Census records as well as Federal Census - you can order these on microfishe at any LDS records center. And you can search for on-line records at: http://www.interment.net/us/hi/index.htm
The former Hansen's Disease or "Leper" Colony was located on the Kalaupapa Peninsula on the Hawaiian Island of Molokai - here is a site with photos - I hiked down the mountain to visit the colony several years ago - it was well worth the trip. http://gohawaii.about.com/od/molokaiphotos/a/kalaupapaphotos...
There is a wonderful historical account of the Colony at:http://www.whirledwydeweb.com/kalaupapa/colony.html
Here is the USGenWeb Hawaii site to search for clues:http://www.allcensus.com/linkshi.html
Cemeteries of Hawaii is at: http://www.interment.net/us/hi/index.htm
