Sarah Porcher Oliver was born 23 Jun 1838 near Sulawesi Tengah Indonesia, en route from England to Australia on the (ex-convict) transport ship, the "Henry Porcher". Her middle name comes from the name of the ship and is not Poacher, as many on the internet think. Please contact me if I can be of any assistance with family information.
Regards Darryl.
