Sarah Hall married George Boardman on July 4, 1825. On July 16, the couple sailed for Calcutta, where they arrived 2 December 1825. After acquiring the Burmese language, he entered upon his labors at Maulmain in May 1827, and founded a mission which became the central point of all the Baptist missions in Burma. Sarah and George Boardman had a son also named George Dana Boardman Jr, often referred to as "the Younger."
Sarah was widowed in 1831. Although a widowed missionary wife in this era would normally return to her homeland, from 1831 to 1834 she preached to the Karen in the jungles and supervised mission schools.
In 1834 she married widower Adoniram Judson as her second husband. She was his second wife. Sarah Hall Boardman spent 20 years of her life in Burma (now known as Myanmar) doing missionary work.
Her Burmese translation of "The Pilgrim's Progress" by John Bunyan is still in use today. She also translated the New Testament into Peguan.
In 1844 she gave birth to Edward Judson, who later pastored a church in New York City named after his father. Her illness forced the family to return to the United States in 1844, but she died en route at Saint Helena. While in the states, Judson asked Emily Chubbuck to write Boardman's biography, and he subsequently married her.
Find A Grave contributor Sandra Lennox has made a suggestion to you (8-8-13) regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Sarah Judson.
There is a memorial stone for the Judson family at Burial Hill, Plymouth, Plymouth, MA.
Today I entered a memorial for Sarah Judson. As I was doing research for her memorial your find a grave memorial for Sarah came up on google.
I know you have Sarah in "cemetery unknown," but if you want to put her into Burial Hill, I will delete my memorial. I understand that her burial is probably unknown but at least your memorial for her will be in the cemetery where the family stone is.
Let me know if this is something that you want to do.
I think your memorial of Sarah is excellent.
