The sample comprises 254 RASS sources with optical counterparts of spectral types F to M distributed over six study areas located at |b|≳20°, and Dec≥-9°. A detailed study was carried out for the subsample of ∼200 G, K, and M stars. Lithium abundances were determined for 179 G-M stars. Radial velocities were measured for most of the 141 G and K type stars of the sample. Combined with proper motions these data were used to study the age distribution and the kinematical properties of the sample. Based on the lithium abundances half of the G-K stars were found to be younger than the Hyades (660Myr). About 25% are comparable in age to the Pleiades (100Myr). A small subsample of 10 stars is younger than the Pleiades. They are therefore most likely pre-main sequence stars. Kinematically the PMS and Pleiades-type stars appear to form a group with space velocities close to the Castor moving group but clearly distinct from the Local Association. Description: Paper III (Appenzeller et al., 1998, Cat. J/ApJS/117/319) presents a catalogue of optical identifications for 685 RASS sources contained in six study areas. The catalogue contains 254 X-ray sources which have been identified as coronal emitters of spectral types F to M. The stellar sample of G to M above was observed spectroscopically during several observing runs. Low-resolution spectra were obtained with CAFOS, high-resolution spectra were observed with FOCES, both attached to the 2.2m telescope at Calar Alto observatory (CA), Spain. Further high- and medium-resolution observations were obtained at the Observatoire de Haute Provence (OHP), France, with the spectrographs AURELIE and CARELEC at the 1.52m and 1.93m telescopes, respectively. A few supplementary high- and low-resolution observations were obtained at European Southern Observatory, La Silla, Chile (ESO), with CASPEC at the ESO 3.6m telescope and DFOSC at the Danish 1.54m telescope, respectively. A further observing run of 5 nights at Calar Alto observatory in February 2001 was lost due to bad weather conditions. File Summary:
