I can't find a death for a Sarah Martin after 1899 that fits.

Marriages on Vic. index do not have place of marriage so can't search for a Ballarat one.

Remarried after 1868 - once or twice ??

If Maria Briggs and then a Sarah where is the death for Maria?

BRIGGS William Henry EventMarriage BOOTH Maria Reg. year1872 Reg. no1351

BRIGGS Christopher Thomas EventMarriage HOUGHTON Maria Reg. year1878 Reg. no2547

The marriages also seem too late.

BRIGGS George Edwin EventBirth Father's name Christopher Th - Maria (Houghton) Reg. year1884 Reg. no6218

No son Charles with same parents so they are ruled out.

Thanks Val.

MARTIN Sarah Jane EventDeath 82 MARTIN Garth Wm Sarah Jane (Coates) Reg. year1925 Reg. no14044 d. Kew

I did wonder if that was the right one with an error. I had not found the death notice.


Sons George and Charles ??

No births in Vic. as Garth with mother = Sarah.

There is a Garth family with Edward and Sarah Emily Jane (Robertson).

Ok, I'm lost for the moment.

If Sarah Jane was born Garth and married in Ballarat as Garth and a widow with sons George and Charles then ...
