Kia ora George.
I am extended whanau to Waipu Pita, who lived most of his life in Mokau, Whangaruru. When his first wife, Aunty Putiputi died early, he remarried his second wife Marion. Their daughter Leanne now lives in Aussie, i think. But there are still children from the first marriage still alive. Uncle Waipu was our last surviving direct link back to Peter Antonio duMorar, the reknowned Portugese Whaler who settled on our coastal paradise of Whangaruru.
Good luck e hoa.
