  • I OCR scanned in all the info I have on the decendants of John C Rawls. It is an excerpt from "The Record" the Garland Co. AR Historical Society Publication 100 year Anniversary Edition 1873-1973 (there might be some mistakes as scanning text is unpredictable I fixed all I could find) I have added and corrected some of the following data.
  •  
  • FAMILIES OF LEE TOWNSHIP, 1880, Arkansas
  • RAWLS D-204 and 214
  • Legend handed down in ts family is that there were originally 3 (or 4) brothers who served in the Revolutonary War and only one returned. This supposedly happened while living near Albany, N Y, and there are descendants in this area before 1840, listed as John C, Rolls, Ralls and Rawls. His wife was a Miss Lucy Throgmorton (More info) who d, ca.1848 and is said to have been the first person buried in what is now the Lowe Cemetery, The 1850 census D-489, Hot Sprjngs Township, Hot Springs Co., Ark. lists John C. as a farmer, age 46, born S,C (thus b, ca 1804 and he Died*: Nov. 25, 1860.) Issue: Sarah J, age 18, b, Miss; Joseph age 15, b, Miss, Martha A,, age 12 b,

  • Children Of John C Rawls and Lucy Throckmorton:

Sarah had three children: Jack, Lizzie and Martha and died when Martha was small, This conflicts with research published in the 1968 and 1970 RECORD, but fits and is probably correct.
    ..............II. Joseph Rawls b. 1835 Miss . last record, age 23 in 1860 census
    ..............III. Martha A Rawls, b, ca. 1838 Ark, last record, age 19 in 1860 census

     OK for the Rawls/Echols/ Ennis mess this is the source ifo I have found:
    Arkansas Marriages, 1779-1992 about Augustus Eckles
    Name:    Augustus Eckles
    Marriage Date:    31 Jan 1867
    Spouse:    Cessiah Redwine
    County:    Hot Springs
    State:    Arkansas

    Arkansas Marriages, 1851-1900 about SARAH L. ROSS
    Name:    AUGUSTUS ECHOLS
    Spouse:    SARAH L. ROSS
    Marriage Date:    13 Mar 1869
    County:    Montgomery
    State:    AR

    Arkansas Marriages, 1779-1992 about Sarah E. Echols
    Name:    Sarah E. Echols
    Marriage Date:    18 Jan 1870
    Spouse:    Benjamin B. Ennis
    County:    Hot Springs
    State:    Arkansas

    Arkansas Marriages, 1779-1992 about Mrs. Susan Rolls - 
    Name:    Mrs. Susan Rolls
    Marriage Date:    6 Jan 1861
    Spouse:    James Echols
    County:    Hot Springs
    State:    Arkansas
    So It looks like this is how it played out...

    _in 1867 Augustus Echols married Cassira Redwine d/o Sion Burdine Rewine.
     
    _Cassira died and then Gus married Sarah L Ross in 1869.. I can not find them on the 1870 census anywhere... 

    _ Mrs Susan Rolls on Jan  6. of 1861 married James Echols? Is this the widow of the elusive Joseph Rawls son of John C. Rawls???

    _Susan Acles in 1870 census living with John Felix Rawls and his wife Hulda Redwine Rawls. Is this JF Rawls' sister? Or ??

    _Then in Jan of 1870 There is Sarah Echols who is married to Benjamin Ennis.... Why in the record did it state that Ben Ennis married Martha Rawls? Can't find them on a census either!

    I would really like to thank all the people that have helped and shared their info with me, it is really nice to know that there are such great people out there!! Thanks again,
