Rawlings, Charles a Wesleyan preacher of some note, was born May 24, 1813, at Cheltenham. He was destined for mercantile life, but finally, brought under the influence of the Wesleyans, he was converted and taken into the Church. In 1836 he entered the ministry, and for twenty-nine years filled some of the best circuits in the connection. He last held the appointment of superintendent of the Swansea (English) Circuit. He died July 14, 1865. See Cambria Daily Leader (of that date).
