      Thomas Laswell / Lacefield was born on 13 April 1784 in Virginia. He moved to Shelby County, Kentucky before 1805.

      1805-1811 Kentucky Tax List, Shelby Co.,
      Thomas Lacefield / Laswell first appeared on the Shelby Co., Kentucky tax list in 1805 after turning twenty-one.

      1820 - I have not been able to Locate Thomas on the 1820 Census. He does not appear in any Shelby County records.

      The records I have researched give 1821 as Olive's year of birth. John Laswell, 1821 was born in April 1821

      There is a marriage record of Sarah Dean to Thomas Lasswell in Jefferson Co., KY, in 1816.

      If J.V. Laswell is correct about John Laswell being the first child of Thomas and his new wife, Sarah, then Olive would be the last child of Mary Elizabeth Crawford.
