"We have not yet found the ship Thomas, Sarah and son Thomas came to Australia on. They arrived in Brisbane on the 'Mary Stewart' on 29 March 1850 - but that was a coastal steamer."

The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864-1933) - Wednesday 30 November 1887 p.4
SLAUGHTER.-Gathered from Ipswich, on the 25th November, "as a shock of corn fully ripe," Thomas Slaughter, in his 89th year.

Toowong Cemetery
Slaughter Thomas M 26 / 11 / 1887 88 years

Death # 1864/B01910 Slaughter Sarah William Head - ** born England aged 67 years

The 'William Head' has not helped me find Sarah's birth.

Children and 3rd marriage to follow. :D
