An Interesting post regarding Native American ancestry
Hi everyone, I am researching and looking for information on the large community of "Other Free Persons" of Richland County, S.C. in the late 1700's and early 1800's. If anyone has anything that they could contribute, I would greatly appreciate it. From Studying migration patterns of these various families that were considered "free persons of color" or "other free", I have come to believe that are descendants of the Saponi and other Eastern Siouan Tribes. My family line was the Rawlinsons and they migrated from Virginia to N.C.(Granville Co Area) to S.C.(Richland and Sumter Co Area) and then to GA and North FL. From my research I know that the Griffins and Rawlinsons along with other surnames associated with the Saponi and other Eastern Siouan Indians like the Bunchs, Jeffries, Harris, Chavis and Jacobs were listed in the 1750 tax lists of Granville Co. N.C. as "other free" or "free persons of Color". Many of these families, with others, migrated from the Granville Co. area to the Richland Co. S.C. area in the late 1700's. In this area from the late 1700's to early 1800's, there was a Large commnity of "other free" or "free persons of color". In 1810 there were 10 Rawlinson/Rollinson families listed as "Other Free". Also in this same area in 1810 there are several other families all living near each other listed as "Other Free" which have surnames that are associated with the Saponi, Catawba, Lumbee and Other Eastern Siouan Indians. These surnames included: Griffin, Jeffries, Harris, Evans, Scott, Jacobs, Chavis and Sweat. In addition, In a tax document from 1822 of Richland District, S.C., a list of free people of color delinquent in the personal tax expected of them included the names, Harris, Oxendine, Wilson, Locklier, Sweat, Gibson, Jacobs, Chavis, Simmons and Jones, all names that are associated with Eastern Siouan Indians. All these families and others made up this Large "Free Person of Color" or "Other Free" Community in Richland Co. S.C. My side of the family Migrated onto South GA and North FL. We have always been told that the Rawlinsons had Native American Ancestors but we were unsure of which Tribe or Nation. My 4th Grt Grandfather John Rawlinson, after moving to Georgia, was trying to get voting rights for one of his sons in the early 1800s and had to prove or more like (LIE) to the Officials that they were white to get those rights. In the Creek Wars(1813-1815), my 3rd Grt Grandfather, Jacob Rawlinson/Raulerson, and 2 of his brothers were Mounted Spies for the GA Militia due to their Indian Appearance. Also, in other later census records in Georgia, various Rawlinson/Raulerson Family members were listed as Mulatto. Any help or information that I can get on these families in the Richland Co. S.C. area would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Whitehawk.

Notes for MARY ANN DENNISON PURDOM:
Purdom Cemetery has almost been completely destroyed. Uncle Carroll took Mrs. E. A. Todd to this small plot of woods on Thursday June 4, 1998. They left his home and turned right onto highway 32 to the Satilla Baptist Church Road. They turned right on the dirt road, stayed on the dirt road until we just passed the Satilla Baptist Church. We then turned left going onto the old Roy Harper Home place. Charlotte lives and operates a beauty shop at the end of this road. We asked permission before continuing. We continued past her home on the right and followed the lane past her field to the end of the field and turned right on the dirt road, looking right, you will find the remains of this cemetery are located in a patch of woods with one marker. There is a new dirt road going around this patch of woods. The marker has the following names on it: Thomas Purdom, Sr. dob 1790, dod 1845; Marion Dennison Purdom, no date of birth, dod 1879; Thomas Purdom, Jr., dob 1823 dod 1894; Elizabeth Strickland Purdom, dob 1828, dod 1879; Samuel Purdom, dob 1847, dod 1847; James Thomas Purdom, dob 1849, dod, 1862; Colquit Purdom, dob 1859, dod, 1864. This marker has been pushed over and off of it's base. The woods have completely taken over this small plot.

JOHN3 RAULERSON (BENJAMIN2, JOHN1) was born Abt. 1749 in Richland County, South Carolina, and died Abt. 1816 in Glynn County, Georgia5.He married UNKNOWN.
Notes for R.S. JOHN RAULERSON:
John Raulersons parentage is unknown, but he had five brothers who formed a large family connection. He had a known brother, James (born about 1762) and a sister, Patricia, the known wife of Gideon Griffis (RS).
John Raulerson (Rawlinson, Rollison, etc.) believed to be the subject, was granted 100 acres of land from the King in March of 1771. This land is in the fork of the Wateree and Congaree Rivers in old Craven County, now Richland County, South Carolina.
John moved to Effingham County, Georgia, in the late 1780's. On June 13, 1789, he was granted 200 acres in Effingham County, Georgia. His brother, James, moved with him, but after a two year stay, returned to Richland County, South Carolina. John later had two more grants of land in Effingham County, totaling 300 acres. The last grant to him there was on January 31, 1798.
By January 2, 1801, John Raulerson had moved to the western part of the Glynn County, (now Wayne County) when he sold his land in Effingham as a resident of Glynn. He apparently lived the rest of his life in this area, but his date of death is unknown. His wife's name is unknown, but they were apparently still living in 1814 when Captain William Cone made an affidavit to obtain the right to vote for William Rawlinson. This document, recorded in Wayne County states that William Cone had known the mother of William, Noel, and Fanny Rawlinson since she had nursed William and that she was a fair, white skinned woman and that he also knew John Rawlinson and that he was said to be their father.
Obviously, the Raulerson family had some Indian ancestors as they were spies during the Indian War.
John Rawlinson was a Revolutionary War Soldier. He served in the South Carolina Malitia, Richland District, as did Benjamin, Richard, William and George. These men are believed to have been brothers of John. In addition, Gilbert and David Rawlinson served in the Continental Line from South Carolina.
Granted Land: 1771, Richland County, South Carolina, 100 acres.
