Kia Ora, David Wade is or was my first cousin. Betty was his first wife. I can only remember his daughter Rangi and I vaguely remember her having a brother. My cousin David re-married. He is the nephew of my father Archie Payne (deceased) from Moawhango Taihape but originally from Oruanui Taupo. David is the son of Annie Akara and Teddy Wade Annie (deceased) was the sister of my father. She died in Taihape a long time ago. I hope this has helped. Audrey Love (Payne) Perth Western Australia.
