Sarah & Laura

The pieces to my family puzzle keep having some rough edges. I received information on a Laura WRIGH who married a Willis KING, but is she my Laura? This is what I have and I am trying to put the pieces together.
10 Mar 1878 Laura Wright married Willis King - Smith, TX
15 Jun 1880 Sarah (17) daughter of Bryant and Maria WRIGHT-Smith TX

7 Jul 1880 Laura (19) Willis and daughter Adelia KING- Smith TX

7 Jun 1900 Laura KING (37) sister of Reuben Wright who was Bryant and Maria's son. Out of 4 children, 3 were living with Laura and she was a widow. Smith TX all precinct #8
Could Sarah and Laura be sister or are they the same person because on the 1900 census Laura would have been the same age as Sarah would have been? And on the 1880 census for Willis and Laura, the birth place for her parents were TX, but Sarah's parents were born in GA and VA. Could this just be a common error on the census taker. I need to know where this piece of the puzzle will go in my family.
Need another point of view on this one. Am I reading more into this than what is in front of me? Just making sure I am getting the correct knowledge on the right WRIGHT. Thanks Juanita
