hi all,

Question, who was Black Dot Sarah? nobody has said who she is. Do we know her surmane? did she live in new close? Who was she married too? Why is she remembered as black sarah? I'm very interested in the answer. As i have family who live in new close and bath road.

I hope someone had the answer.

Many thanks

Ellyllon.
