The following was submitted September 2005.

I see you have a listing for "Lucy Augustus Cole Rawson" and I wonder if you mean Lucy Adeline (Briggs) (Cole) Rawson (Peckinpah) (Smallman)

Lucy was born in Middleboro, Massachusetts, 25 August 1840.  She married James Cole at New Bedford, Massachusetts, 6 March 1860 and  Julius Addison Rawson at San Francisco 17 November 1863.  Her only child died from a congenital heart defect at age three days on 24 Oct. 1877 and her husband died of pneumonia 8 days later.

She married Thadeus Edgar Peckinpah in San Francisco in 1886. Thadeus died in 1908. She married James Knight Smallman in Napa 7 April 1912.

She died in Oakland, CA, 12 October 1920.

A 1912 "History of Solano and Napa Counties" says: "Mr. Peckinpah was married in San Francisco in 1886 to Lucy A. (Briggs) Rawson, a native of Middleboro, Plymouth county, Mass., and a lineal descendant of Miles Standish.   Mrs. Peckinpah is an artist of some note, her home containing a number of fine paintings from her brush, and for some time she has taught painting in Lynch's Seminary in Benicia.   As a close student of nature she has made a deep study of botany.  She discovered three new varieties of wild flowers that have introduced into the department of botany at the University of California and bear her name.  Her painted collection of California wild flowers numbers over three hundred.  She also takes a great interest in photography and has many specimens of her skill, representing views taken by her in different parts of the state."
