I am looking for information concerning a MICHEAL A. RAWLINGS and his siblings. I am also looking for a JOHN THOMAS RAWLINGS (all spellings) or a THOMAS JOHN ROLLINS. This JOHN THOMAS is my great-grandfather on my father's maternal line. If MICHAEL had a brother, one of them might have been JOHN THOMAS RAWLINGS., b. in either Tennessee or Virginia, lived in Monroe Co., Miss., approximately 1850's to his death in the 1880's. His wife's name was Lucinda Malone, and their children were: MARGARET, JOHN THOMAS Jr., JOSEPHINE and CORRETHIANT (CORITHINE or PENELOPE) .
