In 1810 she moved with her family to Shelby County, Kentucky where she married George Washington Griffin on August 14, 1816, in a double wedding with her sister, Nancy.

The 1830 census shows two young sons, so there may have been another son. Caroline died before 1838, as she is not mentioned in her father's will, but her daughters, Jane and Mary are.
