It will be interesting to hear from wildcats13, our OP.

Perhaps they can let us know if the information found is of interest and suggest a direction for further searching.

The Transcript for Sarah Bedell has arrived and indicates that she was born Sarah Rush with parents Harmon & Ellen and married Lewis Wesley Bedell around 1882 in America, and was only in Australia for 5 months before she died, so she is certainly not the Sarah I was looking for.
I am now of the opinion, that after further checks of the PARSONS family, that it appears that there was no SARAH in the family.
Thanks to everyone for your contributions.

Hello wildcats13

Are you still looking for a Sarah Parsons?  I'm assuming your interest is in the children of Harmon and Ellen PARSONS so can we help any further?  The information found goes to show how easy it is to go down the wrong track with this genealogy lark and you've done a great job to eliminate the Sarah BEDELL with such co-incidental parent names.

It's been an interesting search.   :)

To consider searching further for SARAH PARSONS, I will need to find confirmation of her birth to the Harmon & Ellen/Helen PARSONS family unit, and so far, I can find no indication of that occuring. If she was born and maybe died soon after, it doesn't appear in the records that I have searched. If she lived she was not included in the family photo. My pursuit for Sarah, was based purely on the death notice that I found, and that is now known to be incorrect. Always open to new considerations of pursuit, but my gut is telling me it will likely be futile.
