Daughter of Andrew Kintner and his second wife Margaret Ann Kessner, Sarah appears with her parents on the 1850 US census, enumerated on 29 Oct of that year, aged one year old.

The wife of George M. Sirey, they were married in Harrison County on 18 Mar 1869. Their children were Anna M. (Albert) Rowe, Catharine ‘Kate’ (James Harvey) McAdams, Samuel E. Sirey, Almedia (1.Isaac Baxley, 2. Geo. Hoover), John W. Sirey, and an unnamed infant.

On the 1900 census, Sarah stated she was then the mother of six children, four of whom were then still living. On that census, she also stated she had been born in September 1849.

After the death of her father, Sarah inherited his 105-acre farm in Scott township. Her mother and siblings signed the quit claim deed to the property on 30 Nov 1871. The land—unusual for the day in that ownership of it remained in her name alone—was noted on an 1882 plat map of the county as belonging to Sarah Kintner Sirey.

In March 1905, Sarah’s husband was adjudged insane (likely due to senility) and sent to the Southern State Hospital for the Insane at Evansville where he died a few days later. Just nine weeks passed before she was taken to the same facility where she remained until her death 25 years later.

Although the notice of her death states she died on the 7th of October, her death certificate gives the day at the 8th of October at 6:55 a.m.
