Lena possibly passed away in the 1940's. We are trying to find out where she was born, her date and place of death, her age, anything about her.
She is my fathers birth mother. She may have married a Hone Te Tana Tahu or Hone Tahu te Tana. She gave birth to a child called Mamaeroa Tahu who was orphaned from a young age. He is now 65 years old born in Pukekohe on 3 July 1941. We are desparate to find some information. Please if you know anything could you help. You can read more on another posting made on 1 October 2005 with the name TAHU, Hone te Tana and Waaka/Walker Lena etc.
I am Mamaeroa Tahus Daughter Carolynne Tahu-McNabb. Please Help if you can. We believe she may have been of either Nga Puhi or Waikato iwi.
