Kia ora

I am trying to find whanau to my grandmother who was Horiana Houkamau Haerewa. She to was from Rangitukia but have no idea who her whanau were and who if any were her siblings. I remember talk of her having a sister who married a Poi. Just wondering if there is some connection with your whanau. My grandmother was married to Hewa Tihore, first marriage and then she married my grandfather who was Ratunui Te Tawhiro of Omaramutu, Whakatohea.
