PIHEMA, Hone: c1835
I wondered if anyone could help me with information regarding the children and grandchildren of this tupuna.
From one source his parents were Rangitutaki and Haehae. His spouses were Turia and Hemaima, I dont know their order sorry. Could it be that there were two separate Hone Pihema's?
A list of children I have all to Turia are:
-Mae Rangitutaki Pihema
-Materoa Pihema who is my tipuna
To Hemaima I have only one researched name: Hariata Hone Pihema
Any info would be greatly appreciated...
Sorry Aubry I cant say that I do. Sadly, I lived away from the main whanau groups, the family members I remember as I grew up were the Hotene/ Wilson, Honetana and Materoa famillies from Morrinsville, and the Tainui Waka famillies who lived in Western Southland where my parents lived and worked, all my siblings are currently still in the south Island.
Hariata Hone Pihema was my great grand-mother who was married to Tauroa Himiona Maaka and they were from the Pupuke, Whangaroa area.
Hariata is the daughter of Hone Pihema and Hemaima Te Tau.
But I have different parents listed for Hone Pihema....maybe you can take a look at what I have and let me know of any corrections.

Kia ora Jax,

Te Hokimate o Taawhiao Pihama fathers name was Hone Pihama the name of his wife that i have is Huihui not sure if this is of any help..
Im sorry I took so long to reply. I am so BLOWN away right now, I had almost forgotten where this post was, I hadn't received any messages for a while and became dependant on the site sending me an email alert. Im not sure exactly but I have been told word of mouth (so have no reason to doubt) that my great grand father was Poihakena a son of Materoa. And that my grandfather was Johnny Materoa, and whangai by the Hotene whanau in Morrinsville, which I believe is some whanau of Nanny Rangitutaki though Im not sure why. Mum left the Waikato in her teens and moved to the South Island so we did not get to know many of the extended whanau, my childhood memories are shrouded with my relatives being her younger brothers and two sisters, and Kai A Te Mata Marae. I am so wrapped to read your post. True a cuz, I feel more like a neice than a cuz, jus counting the line, but deep respect. Thank you
