By 1911, the family is still at London. Sarah's middle initial is given as M. With them is son William G., born in May of 1908, and obviously Sarah's son. A marriage registration for Charles and Sarah has not been found. It appears that Sarah and son William are buried in Woodland Cemetery in London as well as the rest of the family.
