Sarah was born to Jacob and Anna in 1844 as their second child. She grew up and lived in the Philadelphia area her whole life.

She married Henry John Magee in 1861 and had three children.

1. Anna Elizabeth Magee, b. 1861, d. 1939; m1. Wilbur Harvey Dusenbury in 1887; m2. Henry L. Trexler in 1895; She had no children known to me.

2. John Paul Magee, b. 1863, d. 1866; died of scarlet fever at age 3; He is buried in the same grave with his mother and father.

3. Paul Magee, b. 1866; In 1940, he is listed in the census living with brother-in-law Henry Trexler in Philadelphia. His sister Anna is deceased at this time.

Sarah's husband passed away in 1870 and she died eleven years later of heart disease at the age of 43. She had two surviving children in 1880 and they were cared for in the homes of her mother and sisters.

Her death date and burial in American Mechanics Cemetery are documented in the Philadelphia Death Certificate Index (Permit number 11299). The Jacob Albright family burial locations in this cemetery can still been seen in the original books.

In 1951, the cemetery was purchased by the Philadelphia Housing Authority for the purpose of building on the location. The remains in this cemetery were removed in 1951, and the Raymond Rosen Housing Project was built.

In August of 1951, Jacob Albright and his family were re-interred in the Philadelphia Memorial Park in Division F, Section 2, Lot 24. The site is marked with a surface marker reading "ALBRIGHT".
