Sarah married Charles Fallin III, son of Charles Fallin II and Hannah Harcum, about 1745 in Northumberland. They had at least six children.
Sarah was mentioned in her mother's will as Sarah Fallin, which was proven September 8th, 1766. Charles wrote a will on February 1st, 1773 and it was proven in Northumberland County court on October 11th, 1773. Sarah appears to still be living at that time, she is referenced in the will several times but not mentioned by name:

Remainder of my land to my wife during her life, and at her death to go to my son William Fallin and his heirs.
Rest of my estate to wife during her life, and at her death to be equally divided between my son William Fallin, John H. Fallin, Sarah Fallin, and Elizabeth Fallin, and my son William to have first choice.
