NIHA, Wiremu (Piri)

I am looking for information on Wiremu or Piri NIHA who was possibly involved with the "Pioneer Battalion" of World War One, or any of his descendants. He may have been a Chaplain or involved with the Church (possibly Ringatu but not sure)

Tena koe Kataraina,

If you go to www.familysearch.org and put NIHA in the serach box, you will find quite a few records. If you go through them you may find whanau

NOTE: not all records in that site are accurate but it is a great place to start.

Good Luck

Do you have any more information on him, who he was married to or who his parents were, perhaps who his children were?

I am from the Niha family in Ngāti Hine Taitokerau.
