Started researching my family about 1978. I have contacted people from all over the country and England. I have hired professional researchers myself and I have done first hand research. I strive to provide primary source material and couple it with secondary sources to provide the most accurate proof. I started roughnecking in the oilfield in September 1976, I drilled for 16 years. In the 1990's I taught a Genealogy class at Howard College here in big Spring and had an article on family history in the Big Spring Herald in the late 1990's to just after 2000. I have corresponded with people from all over the United States and England. I have been priviledged to meet many fantastic and very interesting people over the years.

When I started researching I was very lax in documenting my work. I was sent much material which after awhile I realized the material had many mistakes. Wrong people in the family, wrong documentation, wrong dates. I then began getting my own documentation from my own sources.

I owe a great indebtedness to MR. HENRY W. RAWLS. Henry got me started over 35 years ago. he will be 90 in June and no longer works on genealogy, but had sent me the majority of his work (about 5 years ago). Hundreds of contacts over the years.

Hi Bobby

It has been a couple of weeks since we contacted you about your participation in the Louisiana Families Project and as we haven't heard from you, we are following up to make sure you wish to remain a member.

We understand that interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building. If this is the case for you, please let us know.

If we do not hear back from you within the week, we will assume you have moved on to other things for the moment and remove you from the project. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin should your interests shift back in this direction.

Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

William Rawls left a will I have copy of and I have them and their children on wills, deeds, census etc.

John and Patience and family lived farther South of Benjamin and Marmaduke. I have NEVER seen ANY documentation linking Benjamin or Marmaduke to John and Patience or their children. The three sons of HARDY RAWLS of Marmaduke of Austin's "Old Three Hundred" were AMOS, BENJAMIN and DANIEL, I have their successions and court records etc. I have thousands of deeds of the RAWLS, from Nansemond co., Va., Bertie-Hertford-Martin-Chowan-Pitt-Edgecombe-Gates, Halifax- and other counties North Carolina, and many from other states and counties too. my Rawls master census book is over 400 pages and my regular census is about 300 pages.
