Thread subject: Papa Panui - Notices :: BOWMAN PIRIKA, John (Jack): Finding my koros whanau

Posted by Samantha Murphy on 20-11-2017 10:10

Kia ora! My name is Samantha Ann Te wairemana Murphy.
My mothers name was Serena Ann te wairemana Bowman Pirika.
John (Jack) Hura Bowman Pirika was my koros name.
His mothers name was Te wairemana Bowman.
From the Coromandel, Koputauaki Bay.
I know of 2 of my koros brothers, Norman & George a.k.a Hori te oti.
Have done some research & found a Hura Pirika. Am wondering if he could possibly be my koros father? On enlistment to WWI, Hura Pirika listed Waara Pirika (father) as n.o.k from Koputauaki Bay. The names are there & in the right area just looking to make some solid connections.
Please if you know of any of the names I've mentioned feel free to leave a comment or contact me via ph/txt:0273766539
Nga mihi.
