If it is the wiremu Kopa, (Nickname of Piri Kopa I am thinking of and knew well, then it must him. His partner for years was my aunt Hilda from Motatau (nee Tipene).You will find more of this large whanau both at Waiomio and Matawaia.He was a really nice man too, never wore false teeth but still managed a wide toothless grin whenever he saw anyone.He lived on the main highway about a couple of k's from the Waiomio turn-off. If this is not him then I hope you find the whanau you are looking for.

Ka mihi ki a tātou katoa e te whānau.
Enoka, Wiremu Kopa is a common name in the Kopa whānau. If you could provide his wife's name or his children's names, we could narrow it down.
