S.A.P. "Sallie" Devlin, 1841, SC

Reposting for information:
Sarah Ann Permiller Devlin b: 1841 in S.C. married Lambert Clayton "L.C". Cook in March 1856, this marriage was probably in Buncombe Co. N.C.. Her father was Francis Devlin. Our COOK Family story goes that her mother died when she was 6 weeks old and an elderly lady (may have been related to Francis Devlin) took care of her until she was age 7, (Not sure what happened to father, maybe he just couldn't care for a 6 weeks old baby, and possibly had other children,)at which time Sarah found the elderly lady dead in bed. She was then taken in by a wealthy neighbor family by the name of ROUNDTREE, who kept her until she was about (14?) (age could possibly have been 9 as family stories change over the years?). I have found a Francis Devlin and family from Abbeville, SC, who had a female child with the initials SAP born 1841 in SC, and all their movements fit with Sarahs life and marriage. This Devlin families female SAP was with them in Buncombe Co. NC. in 1850 census according to my contact on that family. I guess it could be that her father Francis sent for her when she was about (14?, this could have been 9?) and she came home to Buncombe Co. NC. met my grt grandfather and they were married a few years later. Another little glitch is that this Francis Devlin would have been married to a previous wife before the one this researcher has. I haven't seen a marriage date for Francis Devlin and Rebecca DeVore. Cook page:
