POI WAKA HOHUA from Ruatoki (My grandfather)

Journal by Nauvoo07

Hi there my name is Sha TAHERE(nee KOMENE) I am in the process of doing my whakapapa. My dad is Grant KOMENE and my mother is Margaret HOHUA. I am wanting to do the whakapapa for my grandfather his name is POI WAKA HOHUA. He is from Ruatoki. My grandmothers name was Bertha Brown. I never really knew my mothers family on the Hohua side as I was always close with my dads family. I am pretty sure his marae in Ruatoki is PAPAKAINGA. My grandparents had 7 children in total starting from the eldest: Angeline, Margaret, Edward, Len, Peter, Anita and Sam. If anyone has any knowledge of the HOHUA FAMILY please let me know

Hi Georgina
Thanks for your post. I dont really know any of the hohua family beside my mothers other siblings and my grandparents. But I know my grandfather and my mums brother (Uncle Edward) have been buried in the cemetry next to papakainga marae. oh cool so a lady showed u a book with heaps of hohua names, thats choice. true so u have a son that lives in Kaikohe. I mite even know the person since its a pretty small town. But yea im from Kaikohe, pretty much grown up there most ov my life. But lived in Whangarei for the last 4.5yrs. That would have been choice to meet up, however im currently living in Perth Australia now. What a bummer.. But I can keep in contact through email if you want and ill send you my email address.
