Kia Ora Whanau

Some new info to add about my whanau reasearch,
The lady i am trying to find info on it turns out may have been my great,great grandmother and i have since found out that she had an uncle named Herbert [Maori] Slade. He was a Heavyweight boxer who went to america to fight a guy sullivan for the world title on the
6\8\1883.
His birthplace was Kaeo on 1\10\1851 and died in 1920 age 68.
He was 6 foot 1.
Also my great great grandmother was a full blooded Maori said to be Waina Slade.
If anyone can add to this it would be ka pai,guess ill head to kaeo to see what i can find out up there.
Kia ora
Wesette

Kia ora wesette,

Found this in the Te Ao Hou magazine [Autumn 1953]

At boxing—and I'm pleased at this—only one Maori has earned international fame. His name was Herbert Slade, and he went to America 70 years ago to fight the great John L. Sullivan, world champion.
Boxing is one sport the Maori athlete might well afford to leave alone. It has a punishing effect on the mentality, and the more finely-balanced the intellect the greater the risk of permanent mental damage. Unusual words from a sportswriter? Yes, but written honestly by one who has long admired the Maori athlete, and who wants to see him steer clear of unnecessary dangers associated with sport.

Kia ora 'wisette', you could possibly try looking for whanau at Rangipoint,Hokianga. There are a few people there that maybe able to help you. George Bryers, Victor Scott(although he is usually there only when he can i:e weekends etc)and a cousin Sylvia.,she was a Dunn-Boyce.I dont have contact numbers for them, but I'm sure thay will be in the phone book. Good luck.
