John Lee & Sarah Lever: Family Group Record

Back in the Family History saddle, at least for this evening.  I thought this all would make more sense now if I attached a Family Group Record of John Lee and Sarah Ann Lever.  This lists their children and all of the birth certificates are in the two previous posts.  Remember that she gave her name as Sarah Tysoe when she married John Lee.  Her mother was apparently married twice and had Sarah from the previous marriage to George Lever.  This is the current thinking and, when I post certificates of her mother, Sarah Thornton, it will be more obvious why this conclusion has been drawn.  Here is the link to the Family Group Record:

Remaining Birth Certificates: Children of John Lee & Sarah Ann Lever

Sorry about the big delay in posting these remaining certificates.  Life is full of interruptions and there have been other things requiring my attention. 

I made a mistake on my previous post.  I stated that John and Sarah Ann had 12 children.  There were actually 11 children.  In this group of certificates that I am adding today, there is a death certificate of Madeline Lee.  I thought it was a birth certificate at first.    It is mingled in with the births so watch for it.  These are the remaining birth records of the children of John Lee and Sarah Ann Lever.  Here is the link to these records:

One of my Blog followers, added some information via a comment which I will share.  It is the death notice of Thomas Henry Lee that was published in Western Austraia. Notice that he was referred to as "Harry."  My grandmother Ruby referred to him as "Harry" much of the time.
