Kia ora novice. Wharehuia Milroy and Timoti Karetu know about Nonori Harmer. Ngati Koura hapu - same as Wharehuia. I remember meeting Koro, Arthur James, when I was quite young. Arthur was a younger brother of my Koro, Edwin James Harmer, who married wife 2, Matuakore Pakai from Te Hauke. Arthur lived at the top of the long straight, right hand side, going towards Te Hauke. There's still an orchard there now. Uncle Paul and Aunty Dolly lived just a little further down the straight on the left side where their late mokopuna Shayne was living until his death last month (March 2012). One of Aunty Dollies sisters, Nancy also died recently. Nancy was married to Nicholas (Nick) Sciascia from Porangahau. Nick was a brother of Ru, Aunty Donnie's late husband.
Hello, I am a descendant of Edwin James Harmer and Ellen Lily McKinnie. Their daughter Alma Harmer married Teo (Joe) Hura, who had a daughter Edith Aroha Hura. Her daughter is Alma Rawhiti Wilson (nee Kaukau) and then there is me Alma Rawhiti Hume (nee Wilson). We are still in Wairoa and will be having a reunion this Christmas for Edith's Hura line. This is awesome information and I am happy to contacted by any relative that may wish to contact my family. Mum is still alive and knows more information than me. Ka kite.
