Sarah TEE was born at Tambaroora NSW to William Tee and Eliza nee SLACK in 1857. Gravestone shows her to be 85 on her death. She died in Sydney on Tuesday 6th November 1945. Thomas and Sarah are buried together at Rookwood Anglican Cemetery, Sydney in Sect 9 Row 52 Grave 2602.

Sarah married Thomas Trevithick "Junior" (1957 Mt Ararat VIC - 1929 Newtown NSW), son of Thomas Trevithick "senior" who was involved in gold mining at Hill End.

I hope this death certificate is useful ; the maiden name "Lee" may be mis-transcribed, or mis-remembered (it should be TEE). Sarah's father was a convict, and no-one has been able to ascertain how her mother came to Australia. The informant, George Fever, was not actually married to Millie in 1945 (they married in 1952), and the list of Sarah's children is only very partial.
