I have a written chart showing Pita Ruma Harding from Waima in the Hokianga as my maternal great grandfather on my grandmother's side. According to the old family charts I have, Pita married Hera who was the daughter of Edward Cook and Ngapera Waaka. Edward Cook was the son of William Cook and Tiraha Papa-Harakeka. Email me on kengeorgenz@gmail.com with your postal address and I'll send you photocopies of the charts I have.
