Sarah married Henry and they had 4 children. Around 1850-52 Henry and their daughter, Mary Ann, disappeared (Henry died so presumably the daughter died too).  Sarah then married John Hopkinson at Hillgrove, NSW.  They had 2 children.

Sarah died 1889 at Hillgrove aged 72.

John Hopkinson died 1911 at Hillgrove aged 95.
