She met her husband, convict George Townes Alias Stowers, while working in the kitchen of Andrew Gatenby's property Barton in the Midlands of Tasmania.
George and Sarah eventually brought a property in the late 1850's called Rosevilla on the Isis Road, Auburn. They had a large family and the property Rosevilla is still owned by a descendant. Sarah passed in 1882 and is buried at St Lukes Campbell Town with her husband George who passed away in 1895.
