The Virginia Rockholds changed their name to Rockwell following Thomas Tolbert's generation.

Thomas Tolbert Rockhold/Rockholt moved from Maryland to Morgan County, Virginia, possibly in the wake of the War of 1812. Curiously, he did nottake his 8 children, but had two younger children, a boy and a girl, and a 26-45 year old woman in his family in Virginia.

This boy may have been John Rockwell, born ca. 1812. John consistently reported his birthplace as Virginia, so the move may have been prior to Sarah ‎(Clawson)‎ Rockford's death.

Alternatively, John may have been adopted, most likely from a close relative. Thomas Sr. may have been John Rockwell ‎(1812)‎'s grandfather.

There are two Clawson families listed in the 1810 Berkeley, Virginia Census.
