Tahimarae Wharenui KIINGI (aka Kingi) & Heeni Honi HIKA (aka Hone Hika)

I am looking for any information regarding my great-grandfather Tahimarae Wharenui Kiingi. 1902-1972. Ngati Maniapoto/Ngati Rangimahora, Hapu - Apakura, Marae-Kahotea.

He was married to Heeni Honi Hika (aka Heeni Hone Hika) 1889-1981 of Ngati Kauwhata, Hapu - Hinepari, Marae - Kauwhata (near Feilding).

I have been told that he came down from Waikato and helped establish Kauwhata Marae at Awahuri/Feilding but am sure that there is some confusion here as Kauwhata Marae is older than he is!

Their oldest son Waka (1920-2004) was my Koro

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
