"(Sarah Arnold) who was the daughter of a gentleman, got so tired of being snubbed by her rich sister, made (Joseph) leave England and go to Canada. The twins were born Sept 24, 1824 (James & Elam) and (the family) came to Canada in 1841. (Joseph) was only 36 then and his wife died and a baby also a week after they arrived in Toronto."S3
She died in 1841 at Hampton, Durham County, Ontario, Canada. Sarah's last child died the same year as she. It is probable that she died in childbirth. Sarah's death after seventeen years with Joseph left him a widower with ten children.
