Dixie County, Florida Rollisons (Lafayette Co. also)
Posted by: Donnie Noel (ID *****8293) Date: May 21, 2006 at 18:58:15

I am looking for information about a Wm. "Billy" Rollison who lived near Horseshoe Beach in Dixie County, Florida. Since Dixie Co. was formed from Lafayette Co. in 1921 pretty much all records about him would have been recorded in the latter.
He was born circa 1848 in Florida and died presumably in Dixie County. He was a CSA veteran, having entered service at age 14. He may(?)have served in the 7th Florida Infantry. Several Wm. Rollisons did serve in that unit, but Billy is not yet proven to be one of them.
It is believed that he had a rather prominent tombstone/monument honoring his Confederate service according to family stories.
Billy had three known children to date: James Ottis; Niven; and Betty who married Chris Douglas.
Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks.
Donnie
