Hi cankin I am the great grandson of James Harrison and I live in Tauranga. James is buried in the Anglican cemetery here in Tauranga and you can look up the location in the Tauranga city council cemetery records. The headstone is made from soft sandstone and hasn't weathered very well but can still be read. I would like information about your great grandfather to finish my whakapapa. Can you or any others tell me Pomare's birth and death dates and his wife's maiden name.
