KAWHENA, Ere: Maringirangi
Rina Billings (dont know if she had a maiden name) was born about 1864
Her mother was known as Ere Kawhena or Sarah Coffin.
Ere has a parent with a name like Tawaho
Tawaho has a parent with a name like Rina or Tawaho or these could be 2 parents
Rina or Tawaho has a parent called Maringirangi
As best I know these people are all from Rangitukia - East coast - or thereabouts.
Can anyone shed any light on the whakapapa for these people? I am trying to find out exactly where they are from - their marae, their stomping ground - their hapu
Rina Billings is my GG Grandmother
Thank you for your attention
