Sarah Dawson died between 4 May and 29 July 1854 en route to Australia with her parents, Joseph and Jane Dawson. The age listed for her on a NSW Shipping website (sorry, I forgot to record the URL) was 3. Her birth on FamilySearch was listed as 4 August 1847. However, her brother Hazor Chapman Dawson was apparently born on 4 May 1847...three months earlier. Perhaps Sarah was born in 1850 or 1851...4 August 1851.

In 1914, Ralph was listed on the Electoral Roll at Maryborough, Victoria.

This Ralph is not the one who died the same year (1918) in Armidale, NSW -- the son of Arthur and Maud Dawson. Ralph Ingram Dawson died in 1918 in Maryborough, Victoria, Australia. He was also buried there. VIC Death Registration 5612
