I've checked Census, searched on Ancestry, FindAGrave, FamilySearch but the best I could find is that she was in the 1910 census for Delaware County, New York.  In the 1915 NY Census only her second husband Roswell E. Peters and son George R. Peters were in the Delaware county census listed as boarders.  The 1920 census only showed her second husband Roswell E. Peters/Peaters, widowed, and as a boarder.  Son George E Peters was in Orange County, NY.  Sarah E. Borden was the daughter of Israel Borden who lived in Callicoon, Sullivan County, NY.  As best I can find she was born abt Nov 1850-1851 in Sullivan County, New York.  Still trying to find her exact date and place of birth also.  Her Paternal Grandfather was Olney Borden, Sr who was the first Commissioner/Superintendent of Calicoon Township, Sullivan County, New York about 1842.    Olney Borden was my GGG Grandfather.

I had similar frustration searching Ancestry, GenealogyBank, FamilySearch, etc. while trying to find the DOD of my 2nd great grandfather. A suggestion I received through G2G was to start calling cemeteries. Starting with the ones where  I  suspect he might be buried (based on other relatives, etc). I did, it worked, all the cemeteries I have contacted while doing research have been very cooperative. It also led to a good deal of unexpected helpful information. Good luck in your search.
