Sarah was born in 1734, the daughter of John Mills (1712 - 1794) and Sarah Bowater Beals Mills (1713 - 1800). Minutes (extracted from Vol. 1, p. 73) of the New Garden MM record that she passed away July 14, 1778, and was buried at New Garden Friends Cemetery, Greensboro, Guilford County, North Carolina.
Hopewell MM, Frederick, Virginia, United States.
The original Quaker record (image at Ancestry) from the Cane Creek Monthly Meeting (Alamance, North Carolina) shows them "left at liberty" to marry at the meeting of 1 Sep 1753. At the meeting of 6 Oct 1753, Quakers assigned to attend the marriage reported it had been "orderly accomplished." So the marriage took place between those two dates, but the exact date is unknown. I have used the second date (reported accomplished), but have marked it as uncertain for the above explained reasons.
Note that Alamance is currently in Alamance County, but that county was formed in 1849 from the western third of Orange County. At the time of their marriage, it was still Orange County.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Sarah by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Sarah:
