Te Pou, Makuini,(nee Biddle)
Kia Ora te Whanau.
My Grand Parents are Makuini TE POU,(nee BIDDLE), and Hoani Papaka Wi TE POU. My Mother was Parakiwai GREEN, (nee TE POU),(Margaret)all deseased.
I was whangai to My Lovely Parents the King Country at Birth but both my Whangai Parents have Passed.
I first meet Makuini when i was 16 years old, in Whakatane, as I was given away without her Knowledge and she was not Happy. I went to her Tangi in Ruatoki, but havent gone back there since, only to visit her grave but not to the Marae. Her Parents were Edward BIDDLE and Pioi Erueti NATHAN was her Mother, her Grand Parents were Benedict Benjamin BIDDLE AND Mauri POIAKINO..Any Info on these Decendants would be Great.

Loney and Jude Biddle had a Great Site just Awesome....Mauri Pioikino and Benedict Benjamin Biddle are my Great Great Grandparents, and seeing photos of them was just Absolutly Fantastic. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply to my quest...Take care cuzzie..
