Sarah Jane Laughlin was born Jan. 4, 1826 in Caldwell County, Kentucky. This came from the Cemetery Listings of Caldwell County. It gives the birth as well as death date. We believe her parents were Johnson Laughlin and Louisa L. Cook.

Sarah Jane married Sanders Addison Crowell April 24, 1845 in Caldwell County. S. A. Crowell, Benjamin Crowell and Johnson Laughlin witnessed their wedding, from Caldwell County Marriage Bonds From 1809.

Sarah Jane and S.A Crowell. were the parents of at least seven children:

5. Robert Wylie born Oct 1856
6. Rachel Julia born Sept 11, 1858
7. Rosannabell born Oct 14, 1860 wed George Walter Blackburn

S.A. Crowell 25 farmer born NC
