Does anyone know IF and HOW this family is related to the RAWLINS family of SUSSEX COUNTY DELAWARE that includes LOT RAWLINS, WINDSOR RAWLINS, etc? (We know that some of the family went to Scott County, Kentucky.)

JAMES RAWLINS mentioned above was born in Maryland about 1778, his son JOHN RAWLINS was born in DELAWARE about 1815.

JOHN RAWLINS on 1850 Scott Co., Ky. census was 76 yrs old at the time, born about 1773 in DELAWARE.

From SUSSEX COUNTY DELAWARE Probate Records:
1759- CHARLES RAWLINS witness will of Betty Smith
1760- CHARLES RAWLINS and JAMES RAWLINS witness will of Gabriel Lofly
1798- CHARLES RAWLINS witness will of John Jones
1789- Will of John Layton mentions grandsons JOHN RAWLINS and WINSTON RAWLINS
1790-WINDSOR RAWLINS witness will of Wm. Hudson

1790-WINDSOR RAWLINS witness will of Job Sharp

CHARLES RAWLINS probably born by the 1730's, was he the father of JOHN RAWLINS bn. about 1773 Delaware and JAMES RAWLINS born about 1778?

In looking at original records for the RAWLINS family in DELAWARE it appears that there is much more to the story than what appears in the genealogies we see for Lot Rawlins and those who went to Kentucky. Have you seen any DOCUMENTED genealogies for the earliest RAWLINS male lines in Delaware? Any information on the origins and familial connections of these RAWLINS men will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Georgi
