Extracts from The Fayetteville Observer

March 9, 1876
FROM MOLINO;
The village is improving in the way of buildings. Mr. T. A.
Guy has built a substantial shop, which he expects to occupy
for the purpose of making and repairing wagons, and is now
building him a dwelling house. Our cleaver young blacksmith,
Mr. John Hays, is also having him a fine house built. Our
merchant friend Mr. J. W. Rawls has had his storehouse
reweatherboarded and painted, which adds very much to its
looks, Mr. R. keeps a full stock of goods on hand which he is
selling cheap. With these lines I will drop my pen. Lucust
Grove.


Jan. 18, 1877
From Molino-I hope that your readers and others at Blanche will
not think it intruding for me to mention it in this letter. I
made it my stopping place for a few nights not long since, at
the house of the excellent gentleman, Mr. Jno. J. Rawles.
Blanche is a beautiful little village, situated on fertile land
and its fine residence and kind and sociable people, make it a
place that any stranger would soon admire. I believe it
contains 3 dry goods stores, a doctor shop, and one photograph
gallery and a fine academy, which is in plain view.

Feb. 22, 1877...J. W. bought a steam powered sawmill 1/2 mile
from Molino, and ran it for a number of years, while running
his store also.

July 5, 1877... J. W. bought a thrasher and named it
"Massillon".

Jan. 10, 1878... J. W. Rawls was badly burned on the face and
neck by the discharge of a miniature gun, which fired while
loading it.

MOLINO;
A few nights ago some of our neighbors were fishing on the
river, and among the number was our esteemed merchant J. W.
Rawls, who was the lucky one, not for catching fish but for
getting a ducking. I learn that they were on an island and had
a slough to cross. Jim was walking on a rail and as he neared
the end he jumped on what he thought to be a stump but found it
to be foam, which had gathered around drifts. He went to the
bottom of the river, which reached, to his neck. He then made
for the bank with a war whoop, while his companions enjoyed a
hearty laugh.

From The Fayetteville Observer
July 30, 1896
J. W. Rawls Esq. died in Nashville on Tuesday afternoon July
28, and it is thought his death was caused by excessive heat.
He went into the UTOPIA restaurant for dinner and upon seating
himself at the table, took a drink of ice water and fell over
dead. He lived in Molino in this count where he had been in
business for years. He had prospered and while accumulating a
competency, he also by correct business methods and genial
sociability built himself up in the estimation of the people
with whom he lived. Charitable and public spirited he always
was glad to help the needy and contributed of his means to
every public enterprise. When such a man dies it is a calamity
to the entire community and is a loss that will continue to be
felt after year have rolled by. The remains reached
Fayetteville on the 1:50 train yesterday afternoon and were
taken to Molino for burial.

From The Fayetteville Observer

closed out as soon as possible, then it will be run by Rawls
Brothers.

Rawls, Luke H. (b. 01 APR 1809, d. 10 MAY 1873)
Note: Luke came to Lincoln County around 1830. Luke and Sarah Ann
Spence were married at the Hephzibah Reformed Presbyterian
Church, which was on the Elk River between Coldwater and
Fayetteville, TN, close to Molino. This church was the primary
denomination of the early settlers of Coldwater. Many of the
members were from Chester, Abbeville and Fairfield Counties of
South Carolina.

A letter in the Fayetteville Post Office was addressed to Nancy
or Luke Rawls. The letter was in the Post Office Oct. 2, 1845.
Their names were run in The Lincoln Journal as people who had
mail at the Post Office. This is the best evidence to date
that Luke is the son of Nancy Rawls.

The earliest deed found thus far is a trust deed [note against
property owned by Luke]. Luke's loan was for $180 to W. B.
Robinson. The deed is dated March 26, 1840. It states that
Luke owned a 33-acre farm on the south side of Coldwater Creek,
which was bound by Gilliland on the east, Forbes on the west,
McDonald on the north. It stated the Luke resided on the land
at the time the agreement was made. A deed book for this time
period was destroyed during the Civil War, thus we can't
determine exactly when or from whom Luke got this property. It
is believed that Luke Rawls and his family lived between
Coldwater and Molino. Luke moved to the Blanche area in the
1850's where he farmed and was a Blacksmith. He was a master
mechanic and ironworker.

Luke and his wife stressed education to all their children.
Luke and Sarah reared a doctor, a lawyer, 3 merchants, and
learned politicians. Of the children who attended college,
each went to Vanderbilt University in Nashville.

Luke and Sarah's land ownership included land in Blanche,
Kelly's Creek, Coldwater, and Roperton. The Rawls family sold
the land on which the Blanche Academy was built and The Masonic
Lodge of Blanche. It was Luke who sold land to C. R. Petty; who
built and operated the first store and post office. It was
from this store and post office that the community of Pleasant
Plains grew.

Luke and Sarah were the founders of the present day Blanche
Cemetery. The cemetery was originally called the Rawls Family
Graveyard, as it was on the property owned by Luke and Sarah.
The Rawls and Griffis Gristmill sat at the headwaters of
Kelly's Creek, which is directly behind Blanche School. This
mill was washed away in a flash flood. It was owned by John J.
Rawls and Capt. Thomas Griffis. The Rawls farm was located
where present day Blanche School, Cemetery, and other farms are
located.

Luke and Sarah's house was located on Blanche Circle. It was
near the present day house which was owned by James and Mary
Bishop. It is not known at this time if any of the original
Rawls buildings are still standing. W. O. McDaniel purchased
the Old Luke Rawls place and later sold it to Horton H. Smith
in 1890.

Luke was a democrat, active in the Presbyterian Church, and was
in full sympathy for the Southern cause at the time of the
Civil War.


From The Fayetteville Observer
Sept. 1873:
In this county, near Blanche, of pneumonia Sat. 10th inst., Mr.
L. H. Rawls aged about 68. He was a good man, and his death is
universally lamented.

From The Fayetteville Observer
May 31, 1894:

BLANCHE:
W. O. McDaniel, who now owns the Luke Rawls place, recently
tore down the old smoke house and a few days ago while bursting
up one of the logs found a paper and on examining it; it proved
to be a kind of poetic faith cure for tooth aches. It was
signed by Harriet Leatherwood. J. J. Rawls, son of Luke, says
that one Mr. Leatherwood, who owned the place before his
father, owned a darky by that name. It is written in a very
good hand and in substance is this:
"As long as you these lines do keep,
Your tooth will never, never ache."
So to carefully preserve these lines in a hole had been bored
on the inside of the house in the wall in which the paper was
placed and a pin was driven in. Mr. Rawls says it must have
been placed there fifty or more years ago. The paper bears no
date.
