The grave is understood to be in the reserve off St George St. Other information is from Ngaiterangi chief, Hori Ngatai, who fought at Gate Pa. Speaking in 1903 to a Wellington audience, his story was translated by Captain Gilbert Mair of the Native Department and taken down by a shorthand secretary (Mair 1926:20–26). AWMM
