RAWLINSON, H. B. (1840 ~ 1911). Confederate veteran Henry B. Rawlinson was born in Alabama in 1840. Henry Rawlinson's father, Reverend Amos Rawlinson, moved the family from Autauga County, Alabama to Nacogdoches County, Texas in 1848.

According to family lore, Henry Rawlinson helped farm the family land until the outbreak of the Civil War. Rawlinson joined Company B, Colonel Overton Young's Eighth Volunteer Infantry. The unit was consolidated into the 12th Texas Infantry on November 15, 1861 and fought in the Texas and Louisiana areas. The unit fought in the Red River Campaign.

According to family lore, Henry Rawlinson served with several brothers and an uncle in the same unit. He served with the 12th Texas Infantry until the end of the War and then returned to Nacogdoches County.

Rawlinson lived in Cushing, Nacogdoches County for 60 years before applying for a Confederate pension in 1909. It was granted in 1910 and Rawlinson moved to Austin to live in the Confederate Men's Home.

Rawlinson described himself as a widowed farmer when he was admitted to the Home on September 12, 1910. No record of his wife's name has been found.

Rawlinson died at the Home on April 26, 1911 and was buried at the Texas State Cemetery.
