Rawls Family Reunion 1895

June 16, 2010

I am shamed.  I have no idea who sent this copy of a newspaper clipping to me years ago.  I cannot give credit where credit is due.  I will blame old age.  Anyway…

(Edited here on 8/25/10 to give credit for the newspaper clipping to COUSIN John Rawls.  Read the comments!)

Here we have the family of “Chate” Rawls, whose given name was really Washington Lafayette.  My father remembered hearing about Uncle Chate, but couldn’t give a specific memory.  Chate and my father’s great-grandfather Isaac Rawls were brothers, two boys in a family of 12 children.
