Born at Tahiti.

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=lareau-01&id=I7:

Also known as BIG SULLEE and SULLEE NUI.

"SARAH" - English: Quintal's mother was Sarah Leverton

"TEVA RUA" - "the soul"

"TEAUROA" - "Point Venus"

"TEAVARO" - a district of Moorea

"BIG SULLEE" - English: "big Sally"

"SULLEE-NUI" - "big Sally"

Consort to the brutal Quintal, she undoubtedly was the most abused of the women on Pitcairn, and the one whose ear was supposedly bitten off by him in a fit of rage. She was, however, incredibly faithful to him, a frequent characteristic of the wife of an alcoholic, even today. Like so many others, she fell from a precipice in search of food. However, it is interesting to note that she was killed soon after Quintal found out that Susannah was pregnant by him.
