Sarah J. Love married Lewis K. Richardson in Gallia County, Ohio during the summer of 1848 and they soon began a family. In 1857 they moved to Muscatine County, Iowa and they moved again to Highland Township in Washington County, Iowa in 1868. Records show that Robert and Sarah had a total of six children throughout the years, although one family history claims there was a seventh, unnamed child.

A biographical document dating from the mid-to-late 1880s states that Lewis and Sarah were quite successful in life, calling Lewis "a most industrious man". Lewis, in turn, gives much of the credit to Sarah, about whom he is quoted as having said had "been economical in all things and wise in her counsel". They were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

Sarah Richardson died on December 19th, 1901, in Ainsworth Township, Washington County, Iowa and is buried in the Ainsworth Cemetary with her husband Lewis.
