Tahakura - Edmond Tuhira & George Wharekawa. Rotowaro, Pukemiro
Trying to figure out a whanau connection. I have Land records from my GG Aunty to Tuhira Wharekawa & Wharekawa Tahukura. I have sinced worked out that these 2 are Hori Wharekawa Tahukura & Edmond Tuhira Tahakuri. Now I found George Tahakura in Rotowaro, he is listed as a miner & appears to have been there from the 1950's to 1980 at least. I have with him I suspect his wife Emma Daphne Tahakura & I think they lived ion Huntly & he may have worked for the NZ railways. I think maybe they had a son named Eddie (Edmond I suspect) who married a Anne.
I can see they have land at Taharoa nearby the places they lived. I also think I may have found some descendants with the surname Lockey from Edmond's line but am yet to confirm that.
If anyone can help or point me in the right direction that'd be great. I was under the impression that my GG Aunty married a European but with possible son's with the surname Tahakura maybe not?
