KOHU ,TeWano Seeking help from Tauranga

Kiaora Nga Iwi o nga hau e wha

I am a Grandson to TeWano Kohu & Maraea nee Morunga.
My biggest ambition is to find his Wakapapa that connects him to his
iwi from Tauranga.
The only information I have that he came from the Tauranga area.
Te Wano Kohu Was born around the late Yr1800,
He came to Hokianga as a young Carpenter and settle in whirinaki.
He married Maraea Morunga.
His youngest son Eruera (Buller)took Wano for our surname not Kohu,Things do get complicated.
Any little information be most appreciated

Kiaora Eruera,

I dont know much about the Kohu whanau although I do know a contact who knows the whole Whakapapa. If its the same whanau I think you would have links to Te Puna (Borrells and Bidios), and I think your marae would be Huria. But if this all sounds familiar just give send me an email to:

Kiaora Eruera.
