*Sarah Dean* born c. 1845 can you help me please?
« on: Sunday 04 January 09 15:49 GMT (UK) »
Hi  Everyone
Happy New Year!
I am attempting to find my g g g grandmother's family.  Went to South Africa as missionaries.  Sarah was born around 1845 and married George Smith Cooke - Cooke being his last name and Smith his second name. 
Have tried passenger lists, free bmd, IGI, rootsweb, genforum, Genes Reunited, naairs (South Africa), Cape Records Office, missionary websites....
and cannot find her.  There are many Sarah Dean's born around the same time in England - listed on Family Search but don't know which one she could be and don't have a starting point or name of siblings even to point me in the right direction.

I am really hoping that perhaps someone else is looking for her too or that somebody could please point me in the right direction if I've been going about it the wrong way.

Thanks very much for your time.

Kind Regards
Blommie
 :D :)

It's possible she was a Wesleyan missionary.

Hi Blommie

Welcome to rootschat  ;D  ;D

Where and when did George and Sarah marry - do you have the certificate?

Hi Rosie
Thanks for the welcome.  No, don't have their marriage info.  They were married in South Africa and having some trouble finding them because of that. 
Have researched a few of my other branches but Sarah Dean has me momentarily stumped!
