Seeking Hohua whanau members

Tena koe, I have been researching and writing a book about our whanau's military history and have been trying to locate members from the Hohua whanau. Please view my profile on this website and contact me on my email: kerehona@hotmail.com I am a grandson of Te Ani (Dixie) BIDDLE, one of Jack's biological sisters. Arohanui Brent Kerehona

Mita Hohua as told by Tama Nikora

This comment is submitted on behalf of Tama Nikora, he kaumātua nō Rūātoki.
----------------------------------------
It is sad to note that you have no history for Mita Hohua on your website. He comes from a fearless warring family. He went to the First World War. Amazingly, he went again with the 28 to the Second World War with his younger brothers Hori, Wenerei, Rameka, and Tai. He married Turaki TeMaitaranui.
