Sarah Graham was born the night of the battle of Kings Mountain.

The colonel and Mrs. Graham's only child, the one born the day of the fighting of Kings Mountain, married Colonel Abram Irvine who,according to Griffin, "settled in that portion of Rutherford County nowincluded in Cleveland County, near the South Carolina line."
Irvine was elected Sheriff of Rutherford County when he was 21. A farmer,he was captain of a troop of state Militia during the war of 1812. As did his father-in-law, the distinguished colonel Graham, Irvine was for a time commissioner of the new Broad River village of Irvinsville. "This artificial town never materialized," Griffin wrote. Irvine is buried at Buffalo Baptist Church near his plantation.
