Tena Koe missluvtoi,
Okay! My notes say your Pop, Piwai Toi was a grandson of Iraia Toi. There is no mention of Iraia Toi's spouse.
Piwai Toi's father was Wiremu Iraia Toi. Again there is no mention of Wiremu's spouse.
Wiremu Iraia Toi had the following issue:
1. Pomana Wiremu Toi [m]
2. Te Waka Wiremu Toi [m]
3. Piwai Wiremu Toi [m]
4. Heni Wiremu Toi [f]
5. Erana Wiremu Toi [f]
6. Te Aumihi Wiremu Toi [f]
There was a Hana Iraia Toi [sister to Wiremu Iraia Toi] whom married Hoani Matenga
IRAIA TOI [I Mate A Ia I Te Tau: 1887]
