Sarah Margaret Biles wed c1889 to George Henry Reed who is not the same George Henry Reed who wed Sarah's sister Carol Biles.
Now I see there were two
one 1866 #24321 son of Alice Jane Kelynack and Robert Reed born at Steiglitz,
and
two 1875 #12747 son of Elizabeth Steer and George Reed born at Stua - wed 1897 #7593 to Carol Biles
but the rest of her 9 children were born at Steiglitz to 1888
So the nine years of age difference would keep the boys from doing a double act when young.
