Perhaps you have this information already but here is the family in the 1880 and 1870 census. Based on the fact that there's a 1 yr. old Charles in the household, could you have the incorrect birth year for Charles Darnell Love?

Charles D. Love, Son, 1, Sickness: Has Consumption, TN
Barnabas Stern, Boarder, 41, out of work for 12 mos. b. BAVARIA, father b. HESSEN, mother b. GER

This looks like the family in the 1870 census but the ages of the older children would indicate, to me, that Sarah is too young to be their mother and that they are from a previous marriage of Sam's.

The 1860 census shows 1 result for a Sarah DARNELL, b. abt. 1848 in TN so I believe this is a possibility for Sarah and her family. You will want to get birth documentation, if possible, to confirm this.
