Kia ora, 

I am a descendant of Kuihi WATSON and have hit a roadblock and conflicting information.

Purare Hurahura WATSON (also mentioned as Maria Purare Hurahura Watson), was Kuihi's mother.  Purare's parents are listed as Te Rehe and Te Anu.  Te Rehe seems to be Te Rehe oriori (also Te Rehi or Te Rehu) and Te Anu is his first wife, and sister to his second wife Kokiro.  There is no shortage of information from the second marriage, but not the first.  

I have read on posts from 11 years ago bout the confusion over at least 3 Te Rehes.  I am now more confused.

Ruapuke and Whena Hou are constants in the latter stages of the whakapapa if that helps.


Any help would be gratefully recieved.
