He is father to my grandfather Robert(Bob) Penewaru Reedy. My papa Bobs father his mother was Materoa Ngarimu she was married to a Irish man John Marshall Reedy. My mother(Roberta nee Reedy) is the eldest child in her generation and me in mine and my daughter

Kia ora Avon, my kuia was Te Oraiti, Wi Pewh's second wife. I am completing some details in my whakapapa and am wondering if you would know his birth/death dates please.

Kia ora Avon. I was whangai when I was born, my biological father is John Marshall Reedy whom lived in Balclutha and married Ruth Karaitiana from Wairarapa. I got to spend time with my father John Reedy before he passed and he was trying to explain his whakapapa to me. I am tracing whakapapa and wondering who was my fathers father and mother.My Father did tell me his grandmother was Materoa and grand father John Marshall Reedy, where his name originated from.. Im interested in making whanau connections. I also met a uncle Bob, my fathers brother at my fathers tangi in Balclutha 2010, a lovely man who lived in Gisborne, I believe he is the last survivor of his siblings.. I would appreciate any korero you may have to help. hopefully this can also link me into these gallant men in the 28th Maori Battalion also. Nga mihi ki a koe..
