Searching for Matthews Whakapapa - Hokianga
I am presently trying to get more info on my whanau on my grandfathers side. His name was John Thomas Matthews (1914-1972), and was twice married. With his second wife, my nana (Winnie Matthews 1924-1993), they lived for a while at Rangi Point before moving down to the East Coast, and then to Auck in the mid-60's. Also looking for links to the Te Hira whanau, as they may have looked after him after his Mum (Lucy McGrath) died.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
