She married John Shoemaker and has lived in Little Rock, Arkansas, since the 1950s. Sara became a member of the Gilbert Marshall Charter of the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1948. The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) is a lineage-based membership organization of women. It was founded on October 11, 1890, and incorporated by a Congressional charter in 1896. To apply to be a member of the DAR, one submits an application including family history that connects the applicant to an ancestor who fought or served in the Revolutionary War. Members are given a lineage number. The Gilbert Marshall chapter of the organization was formed April 15, 1914, and was named after Gilbert Marshall of Albemarle County, Virginia.
