Funeral services will be conducted from the residence on the Milledgeville road, Thursday morning at 10:30, with Rev. E. G. Orahood officiating.
In the early years of his life Mr. Rawslings was extensively interested in the sale of mules and farming, and was one of the most prosperous business men of this section. When the boll weevil first made its appearance in Washington county, he lost heavily, as he was operating six hundred plows in this and Johnson county, which proved disastrous to his financial affairs, from which he never recovered.
Mr. Rawlings was a son of the late Fred C. Rawlings and Susan Tarbutton Rawlings, pioneer citizens of Washington county, both of whom lived to advanced age. He was a brother of the late Dr. William Rawlings, one of Georgia's most famous surgeons, who established the Rawlings Sanitatium here about forty years ago, and Judge Benjamin T. Rawlings who served in the state legislature, as mayor of Sandersville, Solicitor-General of the Middle Circuit, and also judge of this circuit.
Although advanced in years Mr. Rawlings was always cheerful in his disposition and wanted again to be in charge of business activities.
He is survived by three daughters: Mrs. Robert Houston of Monroe, N.C., Mrs. Arthur Wray of Atlanta, and Mrs. Daniel Smith of Griffin; one son, Willie Fred Rawlings of Macon; and several grandchildren, nieces, nephews and other relatives.

114 Cotton to Kaolin, A History of Washington County, Georgia 1784-1989:

After graduation from Sandersville High School, Benjamin James Tarbutton attended Emory College at Oxford. On 28 Nov 1928 he married Rosa Moore McMaster of Waynesboro, and they had two sons, Benjamin James, Jr., and Hugh McMaster Tarbutton.

In 1916 the owners of the railroad connecting Sandersville to Tennille, which had fallen on hard times, offered Tarbutton the option to buy the line if he could operate it successfully. Accepting the challenge, by 1922 he was the railroad's new owner and president.

The next challenge was to obtain revenue-producing freight for the railroad to haul. Champion Papers became the first clay plant to locate in Washington County, due in part to Mr. Tarbutton's close relationship with Clark Marion. Mr. Tarbutton was also instrumental in locating Cypress, Burgess, Thiele, Anglo and American Industrial Clay plants here. He was referred to as a pioneer in bringing the kaolin industry to Georgia.

Ben Tarbutton served as mayor of Sandersville (1947-51), a Georgia senator (1947-48), a member of the Georgia House of Representatives (1949-54), a delegate to the National Democratic Convention (1952,1956), a member of the Jekyll Island Authority, and a director of the Savannah and Georgia Chambers of Commerce, the Citizens and Southern National Bank, the American Shortline Railroad Association, and the Gulf Life Insurance Company. He was active in the Methodist church and was a member of the committee which founded Epworth-by-the-Sea.

He was president of the Central of Georgia Railway Company (1951-54), the Central Motor Transport Company and the Ocean Steamship Company of Savannah.
His willingness to work hard, his instinct for sound business practices, and his love for Georgia, Washington County, and Sandersville were evident all of his life.

Mr. Tarbutton was a member of Phi Delta Theta and the Free and Accepted Order of Masons, belonging to the Al Sihah Shrine of Macon, the Traffic Club of New York City, the Capital City Club of Atlanta, the Oglethorpe Club of Savannah, the Saint Andrews Society, and the Society of Colonial Wars.

Biographical Note
The Surget family arrived in the Old Southwest in the mid-1780's when Pierre Surget acquired a Spanish land grant of 2500 acres southeast of Natchez, Mississippi. Pierre Surget was born in Rochelle, France and worked as a ship captain in the West Indies, first moving his family to Louisiana and then settling permanently in Mississippi. He and his wife Catherine had eleven children, nine of whom survived into adulthood. Many became prominent citizens and landholders in the Natchez including Francis (Captain Francis or Frank), James and Jane S. White.

The Surgets acquired large tracts of land in Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas and were involved in a variety of economic activities. Some land holdings were left undeveloped and held for speculation, while they created extremely profitable cotton plantations that were worked by hundreds of slaves with other pieces of land. They sold their cotton through agents in New Orleans and Liverpool, England. They borrowed from and loaned money to large landowning families in the area, and maintained bank accounts in New Orleans and New York.

Throughout the antebellum period the family grew and intermarried among other well-established families in the region. Various Surgets married into the Hampton-White, Minor, Linton, and Dunbar families. Captain Francis Surget's friends and contemporaries included Stephen Duncan, John Ker, William Minor and Thomas Butler. Their sphere of social activity was not limited to the old Southwest, but included the Northeast and Europe where they frequently traveled.

Captain Francis Surget had three sons: Lenox, Francis Jr. and Eustace. Francis Jr. and Eustace appear to have worked closely together, with Eustace acting as a land manager and eventually as executor of Francis Jr.'s estate when he passed away in 1866. Francis Jr. resided in Natchez during the Civil War; after Natchez was captured by the Union in 1863, his home Clifton became a residence for a Union officer and later was razed to the ground to create space for a Union fortress on the Mississippi. Eustace joined the Confederate Army serving as a colonel and an adjutant general. When he returned to Natchez after the war he sold off or leased the family plantations and consolidated finances. Eustace relocated himself and various in-laws of Francis Jr.'s, the Lintons, to Bordeaux, France. Other branches of the Surget family, most prominently the children of James Surget (James Surget Jr. and Kate S. Minor) remained in the Natchez area.


Scope and Contents
The Surget Family Papers (four linear feet) represent the business and home life activities of the Surget Family from 1790 to 1869 consisting primarily of written receipts, deeds and correspondence. Francis Jr. and Eustace Surget, the sons of Captain Francis Surget, were the creators of the majority of the papers.

Receipts from the plantation business show purchases of seeds, plants and equipment. The Surgets also employed overseers to manage various plantations. One of the most important items in the collection is a day book kept by various overseers from the Palestine (later renamed Morville) plantation recording the weather and crop conditions from 1854 to 1857. Doctors receipts for visits to the Surget family and the slaves are found as well as receipts from contractors for work on the plantation and for the household.

To run their plantations on such a large scale, the Surgets were slave holders. Numerous receipts are present providing the names and prices paid for slaves as well as tax receipts for slaves owned. Censuses of slaves including some first and second names, as well as their ages and monetary values are found in the plantation series of the archives. Two receipts document that the Surgets were charged by officials for holding slaves that had run away and who were later caught. A military order found in the printed materials series provides outlines for treatment of former slaves after their emancipation at the end of the civil war.

The series on the Surget's household provides a look into the purchases and interests of wealthy plantation owners. The Surgets were well educated and subscribed to several magazines and newspapers with titles such as The Daily Courier and Concordia Intelligencer as documented by subscription receipts. Food stuffs and clothing are common receipts found within the household series. The Surgets also traveled to New York as well as New Orleans. Mrs. Surget bought clothing from New Orleans and France.

The Surgets borrowed and lent large amounts of money to friends and neighbors in the Natchez area. There are numerous ledgers and documents present that the Surgets used to keep track of who owed money and how much. Correspondence before and after the Civil War documents how individuals paid back loans and difficulties with loan arrangements. Frequently goods such as cotton were exchanged against money owed. The complexity of this network of financial dealings is further reflected through the papers involving the estates of members of the family. The Surget family papers record the settling of various estates including the estate of John Linton who died in the mid 1830's, the husband of Anne Marie Linton (mother of Charlotte Linton who married Francis Jr.). Records of land sales and purchases are also common as are letters from individuals offering above market value prices for various tracts of land. There are also numerous plats from surveyors. Receipts from the taxes the Surgets payed on their land as well as on household luxury items such as pianos, watches and carriages are present.

Aside from written material this collection also includes two photographic glass plate negatives, engraved copper plates for business cards, and a leather wallet. Official documents such as deeds are found on paper and vellum, and examples and fragments survive in English, French and Spanish. Eclectic printed material include newspapers, an Emigrant's Guide to Minnesota, portions of a book on horse breeding, and wine lists.

She attended the University of Kentucky and was a featured singer on a weekly radio show produced by the university and later was a member of the Philharmonic Choir in Lexington. She appeared in numerous plays, operas, and was a paid soloist for the Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas, TX for twelve years. Her credo for life was found in two of her favorite songs: the first, "Climb Every Mountain," and second, "I Did It My Way." She had so many achievements, too many to list, but nothing compared to being a great mom. Adaline was a world traveler and a world class hostess. She was the family patriarch and often referred to as the queen; but truly was the last of the southern belles. She always had the most positive outlook and dreamed the biggest dreams. There are no words that can express how much she was loved. She was our light through our storms.

She is survived by her husband of 32 years, Charles Bohmer; a brother, Harold D. Boots of Dallas, TX; a sister, JoAnn Hooten of Ft. Worth, TX; and three of five children: her eldest son, Charles P. Moore of West Palm Beach, FL, a daughter, Mary M. Soniat of New Orleans, LA , and son, John B. Bohmer of West Palm Beach. Her children gave her eight grandchildren, named: Christina, Vanessa, Taryn, Regan, John, Jr., Tonja, Myko, and Jean-Claude. Her grandchildren gave her five great-grandchildren, named: Alexis, Candice, Jordan, Kiersten, and Calvin.

She will be so very missed by all of her friends and others she met throughout her life's journey. A Memorial Service will take place at the Del Lago Funeral Home Chapel, Lake Worth, FL at 10:00 AM on Saturday, November 9, 2002.

137 Age 45, died Saturday in NJ; born in Hell's Kitchen, NY; dropped out of school in ninth grade; served briefly in the USN; married and divorced twice (Dianne and Lynn); self-employed as a house painter (Pearsall Painting and Decorating) in NY, NJ, and FL; fathered 2 sons (Erik and Kevin) in his second marriage; married a third time (1991), and died within 15 years of contracting HIV.

Bobby was an amazing man - in that he relished the "good" things in life; aspired to experience and enjoy all that money could buy! His association with a woman (Chris Evans) between his second and third marriages, afforded him with opportunities to pursue the world of drugs - which included heroine - to which he became addicted, later going thru rehab with methadone, relapsing to that one final injection from which he contracted HIV.

He predeceased his parents, Andrew and Dorothy Pearsall, of Hasbrouck Heights, N.J. He shares the same grave with his sister Joan, with whom he admittedly fought over, but shared drugs with, and who died from a drug overdose in 1979.
