TE ARAWAERE, Huihana / CALLAWAY, John
To all those Callaway Descendants particularly those who had posts looking for information on the descendants of Rawa Te Puia and Hopa Te Wheko whose forum was lost when Maori.org had its problems.
Most of you know about the book Mike Dwight wrote about Walter Callaway (Wata Kaware) and his involvement in the Boer War.
Some people will know that a plaque for him has now been placed on a War Memorial in Devonport which is where he died.
Now Mike and the people of Coromandel have organised a Walter Callaway exhibition and heritage trail that will be launched in Coromandel on the 24th September 2011 in conjunction with the World Cup.
If anyone wants more information on this or Callaway family stuff feel free to contact me through these forums or directly at email@example.com
Does anyone know anything about Robert Callaway's family. Robert (born 14 Dec 1852 and died at Matakana Island, Tauranga, 8 Nov 1930) was Walter Callaway's brother. John Callaway and Huihana Te Arawaere were his parents. Huihana was Te Ngare, Nga Te Rangi. He had at least three children, Carl and the twins, Elizabeth and Christina. I have been told his wife's name was Taiparoroa Te Awahou Utiku and that she was from a well known Maori family but I can't find anything about her. Does anyone know her Whakapapa or anything at all?
