Sarah Jane Greathead née Cosgrave late Ferris
     Sarah Jane Cosgrave was born on 9 April 1861 in Ireland.1,2 She was the daughter of Hugh Cosgrave and Helen McCullough.2 She married William Ferris on 23 June 1877 in St Patrick's Catholic Church, Belfast, County Antrim, Ireland.3,4 It is possible that Sarah arrived in New York on 5 July 1881 aboard Circassia from Ireland.5 Sarah seems to have travelled from New York aboard the ship the City of Rome, bound for Liverpool in June 1886. Sarah got off in Queenstown in Ireland. Queenstown was previously called Cobh and was renamed in 1849 to commemorate the visit of Queen Victoria.6 She married Robert Greathead, son of Richard Greathead and Elizabeth Barlow, on 1 September 1899 in Register Office, Bolton, Lancashire, England, after a certificate was issued. The ceremony was witnessed by Robert's sister Mary Ellen and his brother in law, Thomas Smith. Robert was described as a general labourer living at 91 Gas Street, Bolton. Sarah gave her addess as 24 Slaterfield, Bolton.7,8 In the census of 31 March 1901 she was listed as the wife of Robert Greathead.9 In the census of 2 April 1911 in 3 Flear Bottom, Bolton, Lancashire, England, she was listed as the wife of Robert Greathead.10 Robert set off bound for Quebec in Canada leaving Liverpool on 29 May 1912 aboard the Steamship Corsican owner by Allan Line Steamship Co Ltd. He was listed as a labourer. The ship was bound for Montreal in Canada with 1681 passengers on board. The ship was 27209 square feet and was registered with a tonnage of 7272. Sarah travelled with their son Alfred also leaving Liverpool on 17 October 1912 for Quebec in Canada. They also travelled on the Allan Line steamship Corsican which was bound for Montreal in Canada with 947 passengers on board.11 Her husband Robert died on 19 January 1917 in Dundas, Ontario, Canada, aged 63 from a duodenal ulcer for three months which turned into peritonitist ioemia. His wife registered his death. For some reason his mother was described as Elizabeth Nipon and his age as 50 years, 11 months and 15 days.12 She died on 25 October 1935 in Hamilton General Hospital, Derby Street, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, from bilateral broncho pneumonia and cardiac failure due to generalised arterios. There was an autopsy. She was 74 years 6 months 16 days old. Her usual address was 135 Jackson Street which is where her son Alfred Louis lived. The certificate states her son John Greathead of 133 Borona Avenue registered ths death, however we believe this was Joseph, known as John Albert, known as Louis's son and therefore Sarah's grandson. The funeral took place at Dwyer Funeral Home in Hamilton, Ontario.2,13,14 Sarah was buried on 28 October 1935 in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Hamilton, Wentworth, Ontario, Canada, This was the oldest Catholic Cemetery in Hamilton.2
