Sarah Hall Boardman Judson, missionary, was born at Alstead, New Hampshire, November 4, 1803. She married George Dana Boardman in 1825, and in the same year went out to [Burmah] with him as a missionary. At their mission at Tavoy they encountered great difficulties and discouragements, and for six years she heroically endured hardships and sufferings.
In 1831, on the death of her husband, she was left alone in a strange and unfriendly country. Of her three children only one survived, and with him she decided to remain and continue the work of the station. Four years later she married Dr. Judson, and for nearly ten years was able to render invaluable service to the missionary cause in [Burmah]. Her health failing her at last, she, with her husband and children took passage for home. When near the Isle of France, Mrs. Judson grew rapidly worse, and died at sea September 3, 1845, and was buried on the island of St. Helena.
