Ngati Tu hapu of Te Ati Awa iwi

Has anyone come across Harata/Charlotte Kikorangi or Mokakau,(also known as Puti), who was the wife of Paekawa Topine?
They lived at Onaero in North Taranaki.
We are hoping to find out her whakapapa & when she died, etc..

Ngati Tu is South Taranaki .

Thats what I originally thought until we came across a record of her with Ngati Tu of Kaitangata, Te Ati Awa.
Because the Topine's lived at Onaero, it makes more sense, Paekawa Topine was from the Upper Whanganui.

Ngati Tu is a haapu of Nga Ruahine.

Maybe she had a parent from Ngati Tu of Nga Ruahine and a parent from Kaitangata.
