Sarah Jones
« on: Tuesday 12 September 17 02:05 BST (UK) »
Sarah Jones married a Caleb Humphries in 1859 in Victoria Australia. Sarah died in 1873 & is buried in the Ballarat Cemetery( New) Private d, Section 11, Grave 20 on the 14th September 1873. Would there be anyone who goes to or lives nearby the Ballarat Cemetery in Victoria Australia that could possibly lookup a possible headstone for her.
I know that Caleb died in 1899 & was buried 9th April 1899 at Box Hill Cemetery

Transcriptions of headstones at Ballarat Old and New Cemeteries does not list a Sarah HUMPHRIES.  She is certainly buried there but no memorial.

Thank you Cando for looking for me, this lady is a difficult person to find. I might try finding her marriage certificate to Caleb Humphries which will have her father's name & occupation on it  Thanks again Ellen

Thank you Shaun, Yes his 1st marriage to  Jane Nash in Banbury he is Humhries, 2nd wife Sarah Anna Webb he is Humhris & ofcourse to Sarah jones he is Humphris Ellen

Marriages Dec 1841
HUMPHRIES    Caleb   Banbury    16/9    
NASH    Jane     Banbury    16/9

Sarah JONES was his second wife and Sarah Anna WEBB his third.

There is this baptism - however Northleach is some distance from Bristol and with a surname JONES.... ::) ::)
JONES Sarah
Baptism 26 Dec 1819 at   Northleach, Gloucestershire, England
Father Henry and Mother Jane.

I agree you need to purchase an image of the marriage cert which can be done online and immediately downloaded.
