Sarah was an advocate of property rights for women, organizing a women's group which lobbied the Indiana Constitutional Committee on that subject in 1850, and she also wrote a poem in 1850, "The Union", in which she predicted the Civil War. She accompanied her husband, an appointed consulate, to Geneva, Switzerland in 1855. They returned to Indiana in 1857 due to his ill health.
After the passing of her first husband, Sarah was briefly married to Judge Addison Reese in 1863. She later purchased a farm in Beech Grove and was considered Indiana's unofficial poet laureate. Sarah died on August 4, 1893 and is buried in Crown Hill Cemetery.
