TAI James Searching for whanau
Kia ora looking for anyone that could give me any information about my dad JAMES TAI.
He was born in Kawhia had a sister called Katie and a brother called Mannie. He moved to Parawera
and his wife my mother was Hannah Tai. nee McDonald. My grandfather Wiremu TeNgo Tai was his dad.
If anybody could give me any info to help with my whakapapa i wud be most appreciative.:)
I new of the Tai family who lived in Kawhia in the 1960's.
Penny to a pond they will be the same people.
This old lady now dec, had two sons, that I'm a where of.
(although growing up in the town as a kid I never new she was married as we never saw her with any one other the other old ladies..)
As recently as 1990/95 they both in their early 60's at least, were drain digging their small holdings mid way between Kawhia township and Waipapa Marae.
I often wandered why they were never there in the last 10 years or so.
I found out that they both also had passed on.
These familys would most likely have a hook up with Ngati Hikairo at Waipapa and possible Ngati Mahuta of Maketu Kawhia.
I'll get back to you on that one after speaking to a cousin of mine down there ok. :worship:
Hi there Marcy. I'm looking for descendants of Pokaiaka (aka Te TAWHA).
He whangai Te Arai Te Tawha. Te Arai birth parents were Taunoa and Tai.
(sorry I have the names at home, i'll post them up later).
They were from Waikato/Waiuku district. Pokaiaka whakapapa to Ngati Mahanga.
Might be something here.
