Haki Peka (John Baker) settled in Rawene in early 18oo's. He was my gr8 gr8 gr8 gr8 gr8 grandfather. Trying to find name of his first wife who is mother of Elizabeth (Peti), born in 1818? Does anybody know where Elizabeth was born? or anything about her.
Elizabeth married Thomas Hollingsworth. Haki's second wife was Mere Maru Koperu. Any info greatly appreciated.

If you use the search box to do a search of Baker quite a few others are researching the Baker whanau and you may find what your looking for.
