Sarah's headstone (near the cemetary gate of the General Protestant Cemetary in St. John's) reads: "Blessed are the dead with die in the Lord. In loving memory of SARAH QUINTON who departed this life March 7, 1907 aged 77 years. They die in Jesus and are blest, How calm their slumbers are From sufferings and from woes released And freed from every snare." Given the age of 77, Sarah would therefore have been born about 1830.

The burial register for the General Protestant Cemetary shows that Sarah was buried in Plot 70 of Section 9. The date is 7 March 1907, although the 7 is not clear [perhaps this is the date of purchase of the plot, and not the burial date]. Her age is recorded as 76.
