A mistake in your response to Wi Pahau Murua whakapapa

Wi Pahau Murua or /Tangitutu/Komene/Takurua/Kahua Married Ngawaierua (Hera) Hataupu this union produced 6 children of whom one of the daughters Amiria Teaotiraroa Pahau married Wiremu Ryland son of Turu Christianna Ryland and Hakopa Tipaata Kihirini .... Back to Wi Pahau Murua in between children to Hera He cohabited ( jumped the fence) with Turu Riki (sister of Kohekohe and Kirikaihau Riki) and they had Merepihi who married Haare pikoi tipuna then later her a 2nd husband Ned Manuel and they had Tumanako Manuel .. What i want to clear up is that Turu Riki and Turu Ryland were two different people
Turu Ryland was born in 1835 and Turu Riki died in mid 1950 or there abouts if they were one and the same then Turu Christianna Ryland would have been at least 120 when she died
I descend from all these Tipuna and and in my young life I Knew both Turu Riki and Wi Murua Pahau both stayed in Waima Tokomaru Bay.

Wi Takurua Pahau in Ruatorea was a a whanaunga his daughter Pani used to holiday with the Pahau family in Waima
