Reason CARRICO
Sarah Ann CLARK
Dorcas Jane WALLACE
Please Note:  Some secondary sources have our subject married in 1863 to a Susan BOYLE, but it makes far more sense that she married a different Reason CARRICO.  Among other things, in the 1910 census (see below), Reason indicates he has been married just twice, not three times.
Husband:  Reason "Rease" CARRICO
Birth:  5 May 1836/7, not 1828 or 1829, Sullivan Co., IN
Death:  15 Apr 1915, Texas Co., MO
Disposition:  buried Allen Cemetery, Raymondville, Texas Co., MO
Military Service:  Civil War (Union Army)
Father:  Basil CARRICO
Mother:  Frances LONG

Reason's age was inflated through the census years, so his ages in the earlier censuses are probably the correct ones.

Marriage-1:  6 Aug 1856, [Sullivan Co.,] IN
Wife-1:  Sarah Ann CLARK
Birth:  1835/6, IN
Death said to be:  1860
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  John CLARK, b. 1800/5, KY
Mother:  Hannah __?__, b. 1802/5, IN
Marriage-2:  1 Sep 1866, Sullivan Co., IN
Wife-2:  Dorcas Jane WALLACE
Birth:  7 Jun 1844, Sullivan Co., IN
Death:  17 Jun 1913, Jackson Twp., Texas Co., MO
Disposition:  buried Allen Cemetery, Raymondville, Texas Co., MO
Occupation:  homemaker
Father:  Joseph [B. or D.] WALLACE, b. 1809/10 or 19 Nov 1805, VA; d. 24 Sep 1890, Sullivan Co., IN
Mother:  Rhoda PAGET / PADGET / PADGETT, b. 1813/4, IN

Dorcas is a scriptural name from the Greek word meaning "gazelle"; Dorcus is a misspelling.
Dorcas told whopping fibs about her age in mid-life, but seems to have come "back to reality" in the end.

"Laura" is almost certainly a misreading of Dorcas, not a third given name.

Listed next to Sarah's parents, John CLARK (æ 60, b. IN) and his wife, Hannah (æ 58, b. IN), whose children jibe with those in 1850.

5.  1870 Census Every-Name-Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com):  can't find Reason & Dorcas, and I did page-by-page searchs of both Haddon and Jefferson Twps in Sullivan Co., IN.  The only Reason CARRICO (or variation) indexed in the entire United States is our subject's uncle, in Sullivan County.  Can't find Sarah, Frances, or John, either.  Widower Joseph D. WALLACE (æ 61, b. VA) is living in Haddon Twp., Sullivan Co., IN (p. 105B), with one of his married sons.

Dorcas has skimmed a decade off her age.  The eldest son is indexed John, though it's barely readably.  In any case, he's Reason's son from his prior marriage.  The youngest child is indexed "Lena," but I find the name too faded to read; she's supposed to be Louise Eva.

Reason's age has become inflated by almost a decade, while Jane has skimmed over two decades off her age.  They've been married 36 years, not 30.  William did not show up in the 1880 census, so he must have been born in July 1880, not 1879.

Reason's age is still inflated; he should be 73.  Jane's age is nearly correct; she should be 66.  They've been married 46 years, not 43.
