I performed a cursory search, but found no other persons with the name of Ireland, buried next to or in the vicinity of Col. Ireland's grave in Spring Forest Cemetery. I did notice, in the same cemetery, a number of gravestones with the name "Phelps" on them ... none having a first name of Sara. It would have to be assumed that Sara Ireland either remarried, moved from the area, or both.
