Trying to located families of these two ancestresses from Ngati Naho.
Ngarongo is believe to be the Ender of the two and Rangiwaewae is the younger, I am descended from their sister Ngaparaihe
one of them is believed to have settled at Te Kauri or Te Ohaki Marae. Their grandmother married Ahomoana aka Te Keha the Chief of Ngati Nāho before Major Te Wheoro. They have become lost to my family because they have married out. I will offer you the whakapapa if you have knowledge of either of these two.:) Ngaparaihe their sister died at Ngaruawahia in 1937 aged 58 so both these tūpuna were from the 1800's.
