Presumably/hopefully you know that Makareta is the Maori transliterated version of the first name Margaret/ta.  it is likely that the refs to a Makareta are either to Margaretta or to a descendant of hers. 

Rehari sounds more 'correct than Rehiai but then care is needed too as the name David is transliterated as Rawiri.

The Walters name is interesting...back in the 1970s..there was a popular NZ singer called Bunny Walters and he was born in Katikati in 1953. (Bunny Te Kokiri Miha Waahi Walters)

Once you have some names this website is very useful to search for whanau connections.

Margaret Madge Walters may be recorded as this death. You have said she died in 1924.

1925/1473    Walters    Madge    30Y

1893/464   Levinia Kate   Hamilton   William   Rehiai (marriage of parents?)


1912/5868   Margaretta   Rehiai   Adam   Walters   (her own marriage)

Some other names Rahiri and Rawiri would/could I think be easily confused

Births to Makareta and Adam

1912/17819   Walters    Muriel Madge    Margaretta    Adam
1914/15687   Walters    Jean Harold    Margaretta    Adam

Possible marriage of Muriel Madge
1934/4604    Muriel Madge    Walters    Mostyn Roughton    Spiers
Possible death of Mostyn Roughton
1985/41631   Spiers    Mostyn Roughton    7 May 1908
1991/36799   Spiers    Murielle Madge    7 November 1912

And Jean
1935/3597   Jean Harrold    Walters    Horace George    Newsham
1986/46740   Newsham    Horace George    27 June 1914
2006/27214   Newsham    Jeanne Harrold    10 March 1914

is this Adam Walter's death?

Hi Barbara

At the following site you can find much information about the wider family of Margaretta (i.e. her mother, Lavinia / Lavinia's mother,  Mary Ann (Annie) and father, Harvey HAMILTON, etc.etc.)  Just keep clicking on all the links provided.  It looks to be very well researched and contains some personal stories.

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/150678450/Margaretta-Walters

I found the above after I'd located the death of the young George Edward FAIRBURN (d. 1922) and I see an In Memoriam notice reference, is added at the site - which I'd missed finding in the newspapers.  Re-checking papers I see there was another in 1923 from "loving sister, Maria".

http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/NZH19240325.2.2.5
*  Any idea who the "sister, Jean" is  ??   There doesn't seem to be a Jean (or variant of that name)
born into the FAIRBURN family ?  Sister, Maria Jane ... ?  but then she used the Name "Maria" in the 1923 notice ??

Barbara .. some of what I was about to add has now been covered in part by shanreagh.

From this link by using the "deceased name search" facility, you can find the burial for Madge WALTERS - 6 February 1925 ... and for Harvey HAMILTON (her grandfather) - buried 15 January 1874. [Note:  There is a discrepancy in age for Harvey HAMILTON, from burial record and death registration (NZBDM) ]

May have been Jean/Jeanne sister of Makareta/Margaretta? So his step aunt but the two little girls may have been brought up partly by their grandmother Lavinia who had her own little boy George Edward Fairburn. Close in age so may have been brought up as siblings?

1912/5868   Margaretta   Rehiai   Adam   Walters   (her own marriage)

Births to Makareta and Adam

1912/17819   Walters    Muriel Madge    Margaretta    Adam
1914/15687   Walters    Jean Harold    Margaretta    Adam


Just to clarify, the Makaretawho has been added above, is not the same person referred to earlier (- as in "David and Makareta" who the the OP says may be the parents of William / Wiremu REHARI or Rehiai.
