Looking forTaku KOMENE/WILSON of Oromahoe Marae, Northland NZ

Query by RachaelP

My name is Rachael Pretorius, nee Curtis. My mother was Donna CURTIS, her mother was Alice WILSON, her mother was Taku KOMENE. I am wanting to find out some more of my whakapapa as I really know nothing. My mother was quite anti our Maori heritage, we lived in Auckland, and so I have never been to my marae in Oromahoe or seen where my Nana Taku is buried although we always went to KeriKeri for our holidays to stay with our other grandparents the Fullers. Does anyone have any info? I would so appreciate it :)

Kia Ora
Unsure if you are still on here and if you are still searching. My great grandfather was a half brother to your great grandmother Taku. He was Tuhi Coleman aka Pita Komene, after a fight he left the far north and settled in the Bay of Plenty, where he married Kohi Tupara of Whakatohea.
Matutaera Komene was our great great grandfather, Te Rangimarie Tauroa was my great great grandmother, she was the first wife and my great grandfathers mother.

Kia ora Te Rangi and Rachel,

my grandparents are Mare and Omapere Komene, I knew your Aunty Taku and used to visit her as a child in her whare on Butlers Road in Kerikeri, I grew up in in a small community ony a few kms from Oromahoe and KeriKeri and Te Rangi i have heard about Pita Komene from my mum.
I have really great memories of Oromahoe, Butlers Road and Waitangi, Aunty Taku, Uncle Jerry, Aunty Betty, Aunty Girlie, Uncle Keith, Uncle Mare and all of the whanau associated within that area.
