Sometime between 1811 and 1820, Sarah and her husband and 7 children emigrated from Truro, England to Petersburg, VA, where we find the family in the 1820 US Census.

In the 1850 US Census, John is living with his son James' family, with no mention of Sarah, so she probably passed away between 1820 and 1850. Find-a-grave has a Richmond grave for a Sarah Pearce exactly the right age, buried in 1841.
