I have no info on your Joseph Pearson, but I have found something that may help you. John B. Pearson md Margaret (Peggy) Rawlings 1 July 1806 in Charlotte Co VA so perhaps he is related to your Charlotte Co VA Pearsons. A lot of the Rawlings family went to Rutherford Co TN.

Rutherford Co Deeds Bk 1 pg 540: John B. Pearson deed of gift to Marguret (sic) Elizabeth Rawlings daughter of Joseph and Leonila Rawlings formerly Leonila Pearson. 2 horses, 6 cattle, 2 saddles, 26 hogs and furniture. 22 May 1843. Registered 19 Apr 1844. Signed John B. Pearson; John J. Bennett Clerk of Smith Co 22 May 1843. Delivered to Joseph Rawlings Apr 19, 1844. (The Smith Co clk must have been filling in for the Rutherford Co clk)

Bk 9 pg 306: Wm Pearson gift to niece Margaret Elizabeth Rawlings dau of Joseph and Leonilla Rawlings formerly Leonilla Pearson (some horses) 6 Jan 1858.

Seems like John B. Pearson moved to Rutherford Co TN had a son William and a daughter Leonilla. Leonilla Pearson then md Joseph Rawlings and they had Margaret Elizabeth Rawlings.

Hope this helps as much as your "finds" have helped me.

Leonila (Lorilla) Pearson & Joseph Allison Rawlings

Surnames: PEARSON, RAWLINGS, HOOVER
I've received information that Lorilla (your Leonila?) PEARSON was married ca 1835 Joseph Allison RAWLINGS, probably in Rutherford Co. TN. He was married twice, and had a total of 8 children. Joseph's other wife was Susan Keele. Joseph Allison RAWLINGS was the son of William RAWLINGS, b. ca 1788 and Sarah HOOVER b. ca 1806, dau of Matthias & Mary(Maria) HOOVER. Also my notes show that Mary "Polly" RAWLINGS (dau/of John Rawlings & Neffery Terrell) was married to John B. PEARSON in 1805... I think that came from one of Ron Bousarra's previous queries on the Charlotte Co. VA Genconnect board. Have you since learned that Margaret "Peggy" is the correct wife for John B. or did he marry them both??

Thank you for the information Lorila/Leonila Pearson. I believe they are the same person.

Here is my information relating to that which also shows that the children of John B. Pearson and Margaret Rawlings included Leonila and William Pearson.

Rutherford Co Deeds Bk 1 pg 540: John B. Pearson deed of gift to Marguret (sic) Elizabeth Rawlings daughter of Joseph and Leonila Rawlings formerly Leonila Pearson. 2 horses, 6 cattle, 2 saddles, 26 hogs and furniture. 22 May 1843. Registered 19 Apr 1844. Signed John B. Pearson; John J. Bennett Clerk of Smith Co 22 May 1843. Delivered to Joseph Rawlings Apr 19, 1844.

Bk 9 pg 306: Wm Pearson gift to niece Margaret Elizabeth Rawlings dau of Joseph and Leonilla Rawlings formerly Leonilla Pearson (some horses) 6 Jan 1858.

Regarding you other question: Mary(Polly) Rawlings md Ambrose Cheaney October 07, 1805 in Charlotte Co., VA. Margaret (Peggy) Rawlings md John B. Pearson July 01, 1806 also in Charlotte Co., VA. (Charlotte Co. marriages: 1 July 1806. John B. PEARSON and Margaret Rawlins, dau. John Rawlins. Sur. Thomas Lee. Married 2 July by Rev. James Elmore.)

Both Rawlings women are daughters of John Rawlings of Charlotte Co., VA but Mary is likely the last daughter of his first wife, Sally (also mother of Sally and Letty). Margaret is likely the first daughter of his second wife Neff Terrill (daughter of James Terrill). Mary is thus likely a half sister and Margaret is a sister of the John and William Rawlings who both married (different) Sarah Hoovers and lived in Rutherford Co., TN.
