Looking for whakapapa or any information on Paraki Te Waru, born circa 1810.

Husband of Ani Ingo Rangipaeroa of Te Arawa (a.k.a. Ani Ingo Tawhai).

Had no issue of their own but did whangai Ruapotakataka Takerei Tawhai, a grand-son of Hone Mohi Tawhai.

Lived their entire married life in the north except for seven years in Rotorua from 1890 to 1897.

Paraki died in 1892 and Ani in 1897. Both are believed to be buried on Mokoia Island.

Our whanau would love to know Paraki's origins.
