Te na ko e Tatere,

Ko Tamawhero ahau with Gemini G,

Tamou Kershaw and his family came from my hapu of Ngati Tupito. And his children are still here today. We are of Patea, South Taranaki.

I would refer you to the Patea Maori Club. John Tamou Kershaw was his name.

Mo taku he, my apologies to the Kohi whanau. Erena Kershaw who married Kohi Takoro is apt and correct.

I am not sure who Robert Kershaw was that lived in Paeroa.

And I also know of the Tamou Kershaw whanau in Patea.

I am stumped to Mauruuru Pango Tarawhiti and her whakapapa, have researched for many years now. Any info from any fellow descendants would be appreciated
