Father*(--?--) SHIMPLETON
Mother*Sarah MOFFAT2
Sarah Ann SHIMPLETON was born on 31 May 1862. Sarah's origins are unclear - the name 'SHIMPLETON' is extremely rare and may actually be a corruption of a simpler name; there is some suggestion she was born in Tasmania but no records have been found to support this.2

She married William (Bill, also Samuel) WILLIAMS, son of Samuel WILLIAMS and Ann MANRY, in Kumara, Westland, on 24 December 1879. Given Sarah's age, her mother provided a consent form for the marriage.1,2

She was widowed at age 74 on the death of her husband William on 10 July 1936.2,3

Sarah died on 23 June 1939 in Greymouth, Westland, at age 77.2,4 She was buried at the Karoro cemetery in Greymouth.5
