Kia ora

Can you give us the maiden name of Raiha as this may help to get the right one.

Good Luck!

Kia ora ano

Just had a few ideas that may help.

Do you have any idea where she died as this may be a starting place to look. For example, if she died in Peria then the first place to look could be around in the urupa there as well as the other ones in that area.

Where was her husband buried? Maybe that is another place to look.

As her brother is buried in Takapaukura, is that where the whanau are from? I am sure you have checked out the urupa there, so maybe you could widen your search to Te Hapua, Te Mingi etc.

Good Luck and keep searching

Kia ora ano ngati_kuri@hotmail.com,

[url="http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~funeralnotices/Cemeterys.html"]Here[/url] is a link that I found that has names listed in urupa around the motu so you may have luck there. I have emailed the person there for some inscriptions, and they reply promptly. They also have Takapaukura listed with the name Te Mahia there, so if you do not have the inscription, it may be able to tell you a bit more.
