This is the son of Jacob Rawn and Hannah Clark born about 1844 in Ohio. He had a brother named Eugene Rawn. I believe that the mother, Hannah Clark died at the birth of Lucius Clark Rawn.

Jacob Rawn remarried on March 20, 1851 to Sarah Needles. He and Sarah left Ohio and relocated to Missouri prior to 1860. Sarah's brother, Enoch Needles also ended up in Missouri. Jacob can be found in the 1860 census with his father in Audrain County, Missouri. The post office was the Mexico post office.

Sarah Needles Rawn passed away in March 1863. It was later that year that Joseph entered the service.
