George Rawlinson was born in 1765 in Richland County, South Carolina. He was the son of Benjamin Rawlinson, born about 1745.  George Rawlinson first married Christena. It is not known if she died or they were divorced. George inherited a life estate in the 200 acres of his father's home place. He later acquired a tract of 50 acres in Richland District on Griffin's Creek purchased on December 28, 1831, for $100.00. He also bought a tract of 900 acres situated in the fork of the Congaree and Wateree Rivers. This was conveyed to George by the Sheriff of Richland District on February 1, 1824. In 1808 and 1814 George drew up wills barring his wife Christena and other family members inheriting any of his estates and assigning his estate to Joel Adams, Sr. and Joel's heirs. George married Mary Elizabeth Morgan in 1820. George and Mary Elizabeth had four sons. After his second marriage, the previous wills were destroyed and when George died in 1835 he died intestate. George was a very successful planter, growing cotton which was shipped by water to the coast for export. After his death, his widow, Mary Elizabeth married the plantation overseer, Gilbert Garner. The sons went to Yorkville where they were educated. The elder three settled there, but the youngest, Charles returned to live in Eastover.
   Mary Elizabeth and her second husband Gilber Garner filed a Bill of Partition of the estate of George
   Rawlinson on January 15, 1839. The bill stated he had possessed a large estate, containing two or three tracts of land, between sixth and seventh slaves, horses, mules, cattle, sheep, hogs, household
   furnishings and considerable money. On December 15, 1838, a survey was made of 884 acres lying on
   both sides of Griffin's Creek and the Congaree River and Gilbert Garner and his wife Mary Elizabeth were awarded a part containing 284 acres, being the late residence of George Rawlinson. The minor heirs were awarded the balance containing 600 acres. An appraisal was made if George Rawlinson's estate and completed on February 5, 1839. The land was appraised at $16,260.00, sixty-eight slaves at
   $33,925 and personal property exclusive of money $1,341.73. The entire estate exclusive of money was $51,526.73.
   The place of burial of George Rawlinson and Mary Elizabeth Morgan Rawlinson Garner is unknown.
