Cook-Edward and Tiraha
Kia ora. I am looking for information about Edward and Tiraha Cook. My Dad has passed on and I wanted to try and find out as much as I could. I would love to be able to track down my whanau's marae. My Dad was Jack Ingersoll and he was brought up in Ruawai and Naumai. I am doing some study at the moment and want my facts to be correct. Dad's mothers name was Ada Cook. A couple of Dad's step brothers were William and Stu Harding, they were killed in the second World War.
