Elizabeth Hauta (te Haputa) (Tanukokati) These are names i have recently found in relation to my gt,gt,gt grandmother. Others have already helped but more is a bonus. Looking for pepeha and whakapapa.

She died in Waihi Jul 1912.
They had 5 children:

Tena koe gigguys,

If you go to www.familysearch.org and put Hauta in the Last Name and set the country to New Zealand, you will find a few records for your gt,gt,gt grandmother. Note, not all records in that site are accurate, but it is a great place to start

Nau te raurau,
Naku te raurau,
Ka ora ai nga tangata!
Together we will get there!
