HUATAU, Ropehana / Ropihana
Has any one heard this man's name or know any information please get in touch. He lived in Tolaga Bay, but was tragically killed trying to save lives in a flood. This was way back in the 1880's - 1890's. Mereana Huatau,(her dad was Anaru Matete) had 1 girl-child to this union, Ani Waireti Horowaitai Rerenoa Huatau. Mereana went on to marry Herewini Te Uri and so we have all the descendants from that union. I am from Ani Waireti's union to Ngarangi Katamoa Paraone ki Mahia. They are my paternal grand-parents.
Any information about my nanny's dad will be treasured.
