There is a book called "The Handybook For Genealogists, United States of America"
by Everton Publishing. It has maps and tells when counties were formed in every
state. It has names and addresses of Genealogical Societies, court houses and
locations of where many other records are kept.

If you don't have a copy, you probably need to look at a copy from your local
library. It is one of the handiest books you will ever want or need.

I'm not sure of dates but I have my Clay Co Book of History and Families.
There are maps in it. Going by these:
Laurel County was part of Lincoln Co. in 1790
and part of Knox Co in 1800/1810/1820
In 1830 map, it shows Laurel Co as a separate county.
Hope this helps,
