George Boardman married Sarah Hall on July 4, 1825. On July 16, the couple sailed for Calcutta, where they arrived 2 December 1825. After acquiring the Burmese language, he entered upon his labors at Maulmain in May 1827, and founded a mission which became the central point of all the Baptist missions in Burma. Sarah and George Boardman had a son also named George Dana Boardman Jr, often referred to as "the Younger."

Sarah was widowed in 1831. Although a widowed missionary wife in this era would normally return to her homeland, from 1831 to 1834 she preached to the Karen in the jungles and supervised mission schools. In 1834 she married widower Adoniram Judson as her second husband. She was his second wife. Sarah Hall Boardman spent 20 years of her life in Burma (now known as Myanmar) doing missionary work.

Her Burmese translation of "The Pilgrim's Progress" by John Bunyan is still in use today. She also translated the New Testament into Peguan.

In 1844 she gave birth to Edward Judson, who later pastored a church in New York City named after his father. Her illness forced the family to return to the United States in 1844, but she died en route at Saint Helena. While in the states, Judson asked Emily Chubbuck to write Boardman's biography, and he subsequently married her.
