Kia ora to all. We have scheduled another Tawhara reunion for Easter 2009 at Te Ariuru Marae, Tokomaru Bay. All whanau welcome but so far we have not been able to find much info on our tipuna
CYRUS TAWHARA. He was my great-grandfather. Married Wikitoria Huriwai. I've been told he had two sisters and grew up around Waioweka but was sent to Tokomaru Bay for unknown/unclear reasons. No one seems to know any info further back than that. don't even know who his parents were. I have an Uncle Cyrus who is around 58 and a brother named Cyrus. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
