My grandmother was Elizabeth Graham or Kereama and her father was Matiu Graham or Kereama, from Whangape and Ahipara. She had brother's and sister's namely.;
Danny Graham, George Graham, Matiu Graham.
May Graham, Vera Graham,[married Roy Martin] Mary Graham[married a Yates from up north].
I am unsure if the Graham[Kereama] whanau in Taranaki or Levin are connected.
There was a waata kereama who married Mereana Netana Patuawa. Their children were Tauke, Te Paea,maramatanga,Ahenata, Hoterau, and Haki.Another brother died very young. After Mereanas death, Waata married Susan, and adopted her daughter.I also heard his brother was Jack O'neil which suggests their mother who was Ngatiwhatua, married twice. Waata father was a Scottish seaman.
