It appears from the burial record Sarah was first buried at the Chester Quaker Friends Burying Ground. Originally located at Edgemont Ave between 6th & 7th Streets in Chester, Delaware Co PA, a 1938 picture of this cemetery can be seen online at Burials there were reinterred at Chester Friends and Chester Rural, both in Delaware Co PA. Could only find a partial listing with 133 names of the total 456 burials that were moved.

Note: This Sarah Edge was confused prior with another Sarah Edge who married John Beals and is also my Gr-Grandmother. This has been corrected. My apologies.
