Ollie is was my aunty & Haami was my cousin.

I was up at the Oramahoe Marae over easter weekend & spoke to a few people who new of Ollie & Haami who are buried in the cemetry there.
I found Ollies grave but could not find Haami's grave.

If anyone can help me find out which grave is haami's i would be very grateful indeed.

If you do not get a response from someone who is from that area, or who can tell you the whereabouts the last resting place is, then
the only suggestion I can make is for you to get in touch with the marae contact person as below.

Jim Taituha
Address RD 2, KAIKOHE
Phone (09) 4077 882
