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.

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.

I KNOW for years family members stated they believed that Benjamin was a son of John and Patience Rawls BUT NEVER sent proof, my research shows that Benjamin was most likely the son of Marmaduke Rawls as they had connecting land on Gapway Swamp in What would later be in Marion county, South Carolina on the North Carolina border, BOTH BENJAMIN and MARMADUKE were on several North Carolina records too.

Benjamin was born NEAR the Virginia line where Marmaduke's family was, NOT in Halifax or Edgcombe where John and Patience were.. I have NEVER seen a JOHN MARMADUKE RAWLS, this Marmaduke was almost certainly the son of HARDY RAWLS, SR. of Nansemond county, Va. and NO DOUBT whatsoever a brother to DEMPSEY RAWLS who had three sons in Stephen F. Austin's "Old Three Hundred.

Is the John Rawls mentioned in William Rawls' will the same person as John Marmaduke Rawls? I would like to make corrections to my Ancestry tree. Thanks in advance for your help.
