FAR FLUNG FLINNS has identified this Laughlin as the wrong man. They have him as a son of Thomas, but he was instead a Laughlin Jr. son of Laughlin & Elizabeth Wright. Since the book has also placed Elizabeth Wright with the wrong husband, this is not too surprising. [p.164]
Marriage to Anny Gymon was in Stokes Co NC. Daniel Scott was Bondsman. 19 Oct 1810.

Laughlin is believed to be the man in the 1830 census in Henry Co TN, age 40-50. His name also appears in the court records there. In Aug of 1827, he purchased a cow & calf at an estate sale. On 21 Sep 1828, Laughlin Flin was a subscribing witness to the will of Mark Donan. At the December Term of court, 1835, he was allowed $60 for his support; later the same day King Henry Caplinger was allowed $10 for keeping Laughlin Flin. He is not found after that date.
Laughlin is thought perhaps to have married the widow of his brother-in-law John Guymon - Mary "Polly" Wright after the deaths of his wife Anna and her brother John Guymon. A letter from a son states that his mother [Polly Wright Guyman] died, he & his brothers were bound out, and their Flinn stepfather died not long after.
