Facts and Events
There are 5,210 vital records available on MyHeritage for Sarah, including birth records, marriage records, and death records. Vital records are historical records that are typically recorded around the actual time of the event, which means they are likely accurate. Vital records include information like the event date and place, and the person's occupation and residence. Vital records also often include information about the person's relatives. For example, birth and marriage records include names of parents and divorce records list the names of children.
Court records identify the wife of George Hays who died in 1747, as "Sarah". Not last name is given. She is sometimes identified as the daughter of Roger Dyer (1699 - 1758) and Hanna Smith (1701 - 1780). The basis for that identification is following record:
Page 301.--24th February, 1757. Roger Dyer's will--To wife Hanna, one-third of estate in this Colony, or any other; to son James, infant; executrix, wife Hanna; to son William; to three daughters; to daughter Hanna Gester, 427 acres in Hampshire; to grandson Roger Dyer, son of William Dyer; to daughters Hester Patton, Sarah Hays. Teste: Wm. Miller, Adam Hider, William Gibson. Further proved, 16th May, 1759, by Adam Hider, and recorded. Executrix qualifies. Proved, 21st March, 1759, by William Gibson. Chalkley's Chronicles 3:53
In the above record, Sarah is identified as "Sarah Hays", her married name. This, however, seems to be an abstraction error by Chalkley. The Roger Dyer believed believed to be Sarah's father was killed by Indians in the Ft. Seybert massacre of 1758. His daughter Sarah is believed to have been captured, and lived in captivity for sometime, before rescue about 1765. Sarah is mentioned in her fathers 1757 will, as "Sarah Hawes".  It is possible that Chalkey's rendition of her name (Hayes) is correct, and the "Hawes" rendition is incorrect. However, a fairly elaborate story is told of the Ft. Seybert massacre, and it identifies her as "Sarah Hawes", not Hayes. 
Court records indicate that Sarah remarried to James Edmondson between 1748 and 1757.  James was apparently the eldest son of George Hays. In November of 1755 "James Hays, orphan of George Hays, decd., of the age of 18 years, chose guardian--William Edmondson." This indicates he was born in 1737, suggesting in turn that his parents married about 1736, and that his parents were born before 1718. More importantly, it would seem to indicate that his mother Sarah had already married William Edmondson by 1755. Two years later, Roger Dyers describes his daughter as "Sarah Hays" in his will,, was written in February of 1757. While there might be some room in the argument for other interpretations, it seems most likely that Rogers daughter Sarah did not married George Hays, but was at the time of Roger's death, still Sarah Hays. i.e., she couldn't have been the husband of James Edmondson.
Sarah and James are said to have moved to the head of the Pedlar River in Amherst county, and then to Buffalo Creek, Wilkes County area of NC., but documentary evidence for this has not been recovered so far.
