HIRA, Mereaira: Need help with Whakapapa

I'm in a throes of trying to complete as much whakapapa of the Pahuru/Boyd/Houkamau lines as possible

The information I'm hoping to find more on, is Mereaira HIRA (b:1891) who married Wi PAHURU and died in 1947.

Mereaira Hira is my G-Grandmother, so any information as to who her parents and grandparents are, would be greatly appreciated 🙂 Stories too if any?!

Ahh, I've questioned my mother about Mereaira Hira, she said 'not a lot is known about her' except she was a rather fiery woman and that Wi Pahuru had been reduced to tears by her (I'm not sure why but I was given the impression that she was very strong in temperament and G-grandfather was simply a man of a very gentle nature).

Would love to hear more about this couple 🙂
