Biography contributed by Katherine Blakeley.

Sarah Campbell was born about 1870 in Scotland and was possibly the daughter of Charles Campbell and his wife Janet (See 114 Janet Campbell) who emigrated to Otago in 1874 on the “Cartsburn”.

Sarah married George Frederick Snell, a bootmaker, in 1889 and they had five children, one who died in infancy.

When Sarah signed the suffrage petition the family were living in Tay St, Roslyn in Dunedin.

George died in 1900 – he is buried in the Southern Cemetery.

Sarah had a son in 1903 and she married James Robert Phimister, a widower with three children, on 22 August 1917.

James died in 1927 and Sarah died on 29 December 1962 at Ross Home, Dunedin – they are buried together in the Andersons Bay Cemetery.
