Grave stones recorded below: could these be related to my Andrew (Bo Hagen 12/1998), dates seem right and Andrew has a son he names Elisha. Additional research indicates that Zilpha and Elijah are children of Hardy Rawls, son of William. Elijah married Margaret Jones and had children, some of whom listed in 1850/1860 census records include: Jarusha (b ca 1832, Maria(h) (b ca 1820), Japeth (b ca 1837), and Luther (b ca 1835). Margaret continues to live with son Luther and his family after Elijah dies. The Zilpha listed below is probably wife to Hardy.

HARDY RAWLS ZILPHA RAWLS
1710 - 1786 1725 - 1790

MARGARET JONES
1792 - 1870
ELISHA RAWLS
