Whare was my koroua Percy Te Hira Baker's half brother. My tipuna Jack (John Lionel) Baker was previously married to my kuia Mere Bartlett and then re-married Heni Morete who is Whare's mother.

Whare Baker was NOT the son of Jack Baker and Mere Bartlett.  He WAS THE SON of Jack Baker and Heni Morete.
