REWITI/PATIRA - A Love story lost?

TextKia Ora all...

I am looking, but so far having no luck, in regards to the line of my g.g.grandfather Te Tumu Taipare Reweti, born in Tamaki in the 1800's to Haami Pateoro & Pori Katene.

I don't know any whakapapa of this line before them. He married Mereana Hapuku(?) Patira from Pataua, Whangarei in the late 1800's and had one son TeRangi Patira (my great grandfather). I am trying to find out what happened to him, as no trace can I find of him after my great grandfather was born. (He was raised in Pataua)

I don't know how accurate any of this information is as most of it has been taken from the LDS site, which I notice changes, depending on the whanau that enters it!

So if anybody out there can shed any light, it would be much appreciated.

Kia Ora
