Hi Rita,

There are many things pointing toward the 2 Sarah's as being the same
person. The way I think it all works out is as follows:
The first Alfred was born 1838 (died 1920) to George ARAM and Elizabeth
He married Jane LINTON and they had Alfred ARAM born 1861 (died 1933) who
married Sarah HARRIS/MAJOR. They had:

Minnie Amelia Caroline b May 1878 Morven ..mother Sarah HARRIS
George Henry .............b Nov 1880..Morven ..mother Sarah HARRIS
Arthur John Thomas ....b Jan 1883 Morven ....mother Sarah HARRIS
Charles Marlow ...........b Nov 1884 Morven....mother Sarah HARRIS
Emma Jane ................b Nov 1886 Morven....mother Sarah MAJOR
Frederick James .........b May 1888 Evandale mother Sarah MAJOR
Earnest Albert ............b April 1890 Evandale.mother Sarah HARRIS
Elizabeth May ............b Sept 1891 Morven....mother Sarah MAJOR

As you can see by the birth dates they are all in sequence and none of them
clash in the same year.

Further, Alfred Junior's Grandmother, Elizabeth, married a James MAGER in
April 1854, three months after her husband George ARAM died.
(see his will on "Archive Portal") What is strange is how Sarah HARRIS was
named Sarah MAJOR in three of the birth registrations. ?????

Now I may well be wrong about all this and will stand corrected if I am. I
only hope the ARAM family history folder held by the Evandale Historical
Society, details of which I have sent you offline, help you solve this
riddle and find what became of Sarah.

Regards, Bob

Subject: [AUS-Tas] Sarah Major

Hi everyone -

I have come to many dead-ends whenever I try to find out information
about this elusive person. The only information I have about Sarah Major is
that she had 3 children to Alfred Aram (junior; his dad Alfred James also
had children to a Sarah, but she was Sarah Harris). The children are:

1. Emma Jane Aram, b: 10 NOV 1886 in Morven, Tasmania, Australia
2. Frederick James Aram, b: 15 MAY 1888 in Morven, Tasmania,
Australia (Ref.
3. Elizabeth May Aram, b: 1 SEP 1891 in Morven, Tasmania, Australia
1573/1891/33)Elizabeth was my husband's paternal grandmother. She was still
alive in 1974 and came to our wedding, but died a year later. I wish I'd
been interested in family history then! I have lots of information about
her now, and her siblings, but not of their mother Sarah - no birth,
marriage or death date.

The children were not raised by their parents, although their father lived
to be over 70.

Hope someone can help,

Rita =)
