Death Notice - The Australian - Tuesday 6 January

A distressing and fatal accident befel two persons on Friday last, one a laboring man named Barnet Toole, and his son in law who, with the wife of the latter, took boat for pleasure on Thursday last for the Heads. After, fishing for the better part of the day, the party brought up for the night on South Head Beach, and as the wind had fallen next morning put off again, but not managing the boat judiciously, by a shift of wind or position, the main sail jibed and the boat upset and floated keel uppermost. To the keel the three persons held on, till the old man becoming weakened, dropt off, and his son in law striving to save him let go and both sunk together and never appeared more. This took place within view of the young woman who still held on and was finally by drifting of the boat carried alive on shore but so benumbed and exhausted as to leave her in a very dejected state.

Toole has left a wife and children to deplore his fate. He was a very industrious honest man, and pretty generally in Sydney.

From Rosalee Shaw (2008-12-29)
[Daughter] Sarah had very young siblings, and her mother [Sarah] re-married just 5 months later - to an exconvict [Edward Corcoran] who was a constable. I though perhaps because she needed the support and assistance of a husband to survive - but now I think that his role as constable might have saved her from being seen as part of the conspiracy = still looking in the sydney gazette for more clues here.

Sarah's quick 2nd marriage might reflect immaturity on the part of a a teenager who grew up in a wild and lawless society (as did her first I think), god alone knows what her mother thought
