Censuses: I've found Sarah Jane in the 1852, 1861, 1871, and 1881 censuses. Were there any censuses before that in Ontario/Canada West?
Birth record: Impossible to really search for until her parents' names are known.
Marriage record: I've searched online and haven't been able to find the record of her marriage to Henry Prince. I've posted questions about this on several forums, but so far no one has attempted a look up.
Death record: I have found Sarah Jane's death record (see Sources section).
I do not have experience with less common sources, so I have not yet researched any other types of records. I have done general searches on FamilySearch and come up empty.
