I have been looking for some info on behalf for my Mother, of Riria Mangakahia. My Mum is a descendant of Riria Mangakahia whom married Hori Te Tai from Hokianga. There was some Take about Hori and Riria's marraige in the Hokianga so they moved to Coromandel ways (Whangapoua). There it gets complicated.
They had a daughter, Wiha, whom later married Moutini Tawhai from the Hokianga and had a daughter named Maraea Mina May Tawhai (Mami), whom married Huna Reihana-Ruka (Timbo) whom are the parents of my mother, Lydia (Riria, Kiki or Kicky).
All we know is that Riria died fairly young of a sickness and Hori and Riria only had one child together (which is Wiha). Hori later married. We are trying to track down anymore info of Riria, her parents and grandparents and so forth.
Any information relevant is mostly appreciated. Thanks all!
