I am a descendant of the Rawlinson family that was in the Richland County S.C area during the mid 1700's and early 1800's. In Richland Co S.C. in the mid to late 1700's and early 1800's there is a very large community of "free persons of color" or "Other Free". This community had many families that were Bi-racial and Tri-racial(White, Indian and African descent). The Rawlinson family was part of this "free person of color" community. In 1810 there are 10 Rawlinson/Rollinson families listed as "Other Free" in Richland Co. Also, living in this same area, there are several other families listed as "Other Free" which are closely associated with the Rawlinsons including: Jeffries(3 Families listed as Other Free), Griffin, Jacobs(6 Families listed), Harris(6 Families listed), Evans, Scott, and Chavis(3 Families listed). All these families made up this large community of "Other Free Persons" or a "Racial Isolate Group" in Richland County, South Carolina. I am looking for information on what Native American Tribe they descended from. If any one has any information on these Families, It would be very appreciated. Thanks
