You and I have corresponded before. Your line of the Rasco's descend from Lodawich Rasco and Mary Ann (unknown)as follows:

1st generation: LODAWICK or LODOWICH Rasco born about 1808 in Marlsboro County S.C. believed to have died after 1870 but prior to 1880 in Texas. He was first located in the 1830 census of Pike County Georgia. It is uncertain when or where he married Mary Ann but their oldest known child was born about 1830. By the time of the 1850 census Lodawich Rasco's family was residing in Coweta County Georgia. It is believed that Lodowich mother's name was Mary and he had at least one brother named James. Although Lodawich's father has not been proven, it is believed that his father died before 1828. His name may have been Alexander, James, or John Rasco. When the 1860 census was taken, Lodawich and his family were located in Brazos County Texas. By 1870 he was living in Madison County Texas.
