  • Notes 
    • Sarah originally came to help Barabara (her Aunt and wife of Alexander) with the birth of their third child, in exchange for Sarah's help Barbara was to teach her to read and write. Sarah stayed with Alexander Barbara and their three children for a year. Barbara rose early one morning to take eggs to the market, on her return she found Alexander and Sarah together. They lived in an uneasy truce, then Alexander suggested Barbara go to Sydney with the children for her 'health' and a change of air. Barbara accepted the offer. While Barbara was away Alexander had fled to Narrabri with Sarah.....
      In the beginning Sarah was sent to stay with the Frater brothers in Queensland, while Alexander moved about shearing and droving. She had no house of her own, little money and was not yet officially married. When they finely had a place of their own in a remote part of northern New South Wales, Alexander still preferred to working away, leaving Sarah with her ever growing family. By the turn of the century she had six children, delivered mostly by her mother while Alexander was away, and her hair had turned completly white. For weeks even months, Sarah was left alone. She had been reduced to such dispair she had written to Penelope Frater discribing her situation and asking for help. Penelope sent her a brisk letter with a five pound note and a bolt of cotton, calling her a hussy and telling her never to write again. Sarah swallowed her pride enough to accept the gift but showed her spirit in refusing to cater to Penelope Frater's elegance's when she called on day. She stayed indoors, forcing Penelope to drive all the way up to the house and knock on the door. Most women, aware of Penelope's ancestry, hurried down to the gate to meet her. It may of been this display of hauteur that sparked her interest in Sarah and culminated in a friendship between the two women. By early 1905 Sarah had given birth to 10 children, Alexander was away droving now for two years at a stretch, and he sent no money back. Conditions were so bad that their Grandmother Penelope Frater kept the family at these times, and it was a difficult time for all concerned. The family had moved to Baan Baa, another property south of Narrabri, given to Alexander by his father. 1908 Sarah was once again pregnant for the 11th and final time. Sarah had gone to stay with her mother, giving birth to Kenneth under the cherry tree, not far from the house. It stretched her limited resources to the breaking point. Her children couldn't remember a time when her hair wasnt white, and they stared in amazement at the lock of auburn hair their father kept entwined in a watch chain. Sarah was taken away oneday, exhausted and disturbed, to a psychiatric hospital in Sydney. For a while she improved and was sent home, but the sight of the property sent her straight back into dispair, and she was returned to hospital. Alexander had taken the last born, Kenneth down to Sydney to see her, but Sarah's condition did not improve, and while Kenneth never forgot the sight of his mother in a red flannel nightgown, she continued to deteriorate. The news of her death came suddenly, and she was taken back to Narrabri to buried in the General Cemetery. [5, 6, 7]
