KOPA, Tiari: Looking for whakapapa
My name is Kelly Cooper and I am tracing my whakapapa and need some help please! I would like to find out the names of Tiari Kopa's (from Waiomio) parents and the surname of his wives, Kare and Harata who were sisters. I have been told the sister's maiden name may have been Pou, but it is not certain.
Kare = Tiari Kopa = Harata
I descend from Kare
Tiari and Kare had a son Nau Paraone Cooper
He had a son Henry Nau Chad Cooper
I am Henry's daughter
Kia ora. Maybe Tiari Kopa's father was Ape or Dick. Dick married Pore who was a Waiomio (or Waipouri) I think. If your query is still outstanding you are welcome to email me back and I will look for you. I have Tiari Kopa's whakapapa somewhere but my papers are all over the place. There is also some connection to the Pita Tunua whanau (Peters) at Whananaki if I recall correctly, but this is through a marriage. Best wishes.
