Looking for James Wilhelm Rudolph of Kaeo New Zealand
James Wilhelm Rudolph (presumed of German descent), married sisters 1st Te Korohu Patara and then Miriama Patara. James approximate birth year would have been 1808 arriving in New Zealand prior to 1831 and residing in Kaeo, Whangaroa, New Zealand.
There are thousands of descendants from James and these 2 sisters living around the world. It is not known where he is buried and his history is somewhat elusive. Rudolph and Rurawhe are one and the same family and the latter is merely a transliteration of English to the Maori language.
We have some information regarding him but from stories that have been passed on from family members, alot of it is speculation??
Any help would be much appreciated!
