My mother is searching for the surname of her great grandfather. He would of lived in the 19th century probably around the Tuhoe region. His first name is TEREWA. He was married to HARATA TIMOTI. They had a daughter, KURAWHA who had a daughter TE MAARA REHA who married RAKAUKAWA POHA. Their children were Pakau (Wilson) Poha, Rotira (Raumati) Thrupp (nee Poha), Tarati Apanui (nee Poha), Amaroa (Emily) Kingi (nee Poha), Kiriwera (George) Poha, Pirihira (Nellie) James (nee Poha) and Pote (Doreen) Poha (nee Ozanne). Any help would be great.

Kia ora,

Na Jo.
