Kia ora, I know very little about these tupuna except a couple of names. I have managed to discover a short korero regarding my great grandfather, but not much of my great grandmother. Any help, please
Tipuna: Arapera Kepa or Hemo Rareti Te Hira Kepa are the names I have for this tipuna, born possibly at Kaipara Flats about 1870. I have no knowledge of her parents, or siblings.
Married Mateono Hakopa, also known as Te Wharengori Hakopa/ Mateono/ born about late 1860's possibly in Whatawhata.

I have just started looking and researching my whanau and came across your post.
My great grand fathers name is Taikehu Mateono Rarite HAKOPA from (Ngati Mahanga)Tainui who was married to Hingaia AHURIRI (Tuhoe) Murupara
My Grandfather's name is Kaumoana Taikehu Mateono HAKOPA also known as Harry Kaumoana JACOBS who married Winika TE RONGOMAU (Born in Whatawhata)
I remember visiting with them in Temple View and my aunty lived in Whatawhata.
I dont know much about my whanau except for this and my father's and aunties names. Is there a link here?? Do any of these names match what you've got?
Whoops sorry nushy. I accidently shut off the email pop-up, sorry bout that, but I just needed to explain that the info I sent you was basically all I had written in that letter to my aunt, I wasnt being a no-it-all to her it was more a mission of research on her behalf lol. And I hope that helps you at least a little in your journey. I just gotta apologise again for taking so long to reply.
Tena koe whanaunga
