Help with my whakapapa.Martha was born in Thames (I think) and married in Thames to Herman Jacob Beck. They had nine children, some of whom were born in Waihi, David Francis Beck being my grandfather. Martha and Jacobare buried in Taumaranui, they died 1940 and 1941. Looking for Martha's family, Jacob was born in Germany. The story is that she was put out of the tribe when she took off with Jake, she had a moko and played the accordian. Any help would be much appreciated.
