Carter WOMACK; NETHERWOOD; HENSLEY; RABBITT If this man belongs to you, I would like to hear from you. I have a lot of information from the newspaper and the library on him & his family that I will gladly share. I am particularly interested in him, because one of my Womack grandfathers was named "Carter". These are the only 2 "Carter Womacks" I have found and I wonder if there is a connection. [The El Paso Times, July 3, 1956 p.16 (I have omitted some non-genealogical information, if you want a complete copy, please let me know). "Carter Womack, chairman of the board of directors and president of El Paso Electric Co., died Sunday morning in Providence Memorial Hospital, following a brief illness. He would have been 59 years old Sept. 1. Mr. Womack was born in Prince Edward County, VA., in 1897 and was educated in the school system of Richmond, VA. He served overseas with the U.S. Army in WWI. Mr. Womack, who lived at 3712 San Mateo Road, is survived by his widow, the former Mary NETHERWOOD of Richmond, one daughter, Mrs. Elmo HENSLEY of Roswell, NM; three grandchildren, Becky HENSLEY 14, Leslie HENSLEY 4, and Amy HENSLEY 2, all of Roswell; a sister, Mrs. Mary RABBITT of Cincinnati, Ohio and a brother, William WOMACK of Keysville, VA. Funeral services for Mr. Womack will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday in the Kaster and Maxon Chapel with the Rev. B. M. G. Williams officiating. Burial will be in Restlawn Memorial Park." I hope someone can help me place this man in the Womack Lineage. Please e-mail me at: Ann_Crumpton@tamu-commerce.edu

This is a problem more than a request but I can use an answer on either. My SARAH WOMACK married JAMES CODY...then I look in the GENEALOGY of the RAGLAND FAMILIES by MARGARET MIRIAM STRONG (MRS.PHILIP H.HALE)-Member of the DAR -ST.LOUIS, MO.-1914-she states that the line down to SARAH goes like this WILLIAM WOMACK father of ARTHUR WOMACK who was father of LAWRENCE WOMACK who was father of LAWRENCE WOMACK who was father of LAWRENCE WOMACK who was father of EDWARD who was father of ABRAHAM father of RICHARD father of SARAH WOMACK ...is this correct ? An outline sketch done in 1914 by Jean stevenson in CORSICANA, TX . has another version....who was the father of SARAH ?--Paul Wright - Decatur, Ga.

Michael S. Montgomery

I've recently received a copy of the results of my father's genealogical research, and I (a curious beginner) wonder if someone could point me to good sources of information on William Womack ("The Immigrant") and/or his wife Mary Allen. (I'm reportedly descended from them through Abraham (1645-1733); William (1685-1762), whose spouse's name I see variously in Family Tree Maker lists as Mary Gower and as Tabitha Gower; Agnes (m. John Bullock); Mary (Molly) Bullock (m. Mathew Martin and d. ca. 1766); Mary (Molly) Martin (1764-aft. 1850, m. Robert Anderson); Elizabeth M. Anderson (1798-aft. 1880, m. Robert Montgomery); and Alexander Hamilton Montgomery (1821-1891), of Tennessee and Texas, my ggg grandfather.)

I've been meaning to post this info for some time now. Richard Dietz had generously offered to provide free surname searches of his extensive genealogy CD collection. To get the free search you must limit your search to just one name on one CD. If you want a more complicated search, then there is a modest fee. Richard's home page is at http://ghs1.greenheart.com/rdietz/ and the CD list is located at http://ghs1.greenheart.com/rdietz/cd-rom/htm. I would take advantage of this opportunity. Good luck, Mark

I am researching Lydia Dara Womack (b.1867) m. Charles Meese in Perry County AR. Lydia and Charles are my ggrandparents. Lydia's father was James Womack (b. 1828). I have found James married to Eveline ? on the 1860 Van Buren County AR census. At that time they had children Ruthy (age 6), Mary E. (age 4) and Melissa P. (age 2). I also think they had a son William (born around 1860). If any of this sounds familiar please contact me. Thanks.

More info I've been meaning to post. Robert Turner sent me the info for Ben Lomond Press (aka Womack Printing). They are located at 105 Donnell Street; McMinnville, TN; 37110. Their phone number is (615) 473-7212. Robert said that they sell copies of Oscar B. Womack's _The Descendants of Thomas and Louvisa Rice Womack_. I suspect they also sell copies of the _Womack Genealogy_ newsletter. For those that don't know, Oscar was the editor of _Womack Genealogy_ which was published twice a year in the late 50's by the Womack Family Association.

I made a major breakthrough today regarding my ggg grandfather, Henry Womack b ca 1800 of Halifax Co, VA. The microfilm I borrowed from the Library of Virginia records his death on Jun 20th, 1875. It also lists his parents names as William & Rebecca Womack. I need to recheck my records, but I don't think I have any records of a William & Rebecca Womack in Halifax Co. It is most likely they cam from another county. Does anyone have an sources that list them? Thanks, Mark

Looking for tie in to WmWomack the immigrant, for my ggg Elizabeth Womack Epps Spraggins from Prince Geo. Co.,Va., married Sylvanus Spraggins mid 1830's from Charles City, Co.,VA. They had seven ch.:AnnEliza,Richard,Wm.,John(mine),Mary, Martha Jane, and Emma. Elizabeth Womack had a brother, Capt. R.A. Womack who was captain of a ship called the North Star which sailed from New York to Havre, France. Unfortunately there were more than ten ships with that name sailing from NY in 1855! Capt Womack is buried in Richmond, VA -I have forgotten which cemetary. He took a French wife and they had a son -- I believe they stayed in France after he died. So far I've not been able to find the tie in to Wm. Womack for my ggg Elizabeth Womack Epps Spraggins or her brother Capt. R.A. Womack. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Gloria

I found a manuscript about 20 years ago written by "Jessie Womack Moorhead". She published this in 1961. I typed it up so I could share it with other Womack researchers. I have shared it with many of you already. It is also typed up in full on my Web Page. Last year I shared it with Richard Dietz, at which time he stated he had never heard of it before. Now, I have just found out (from his web page) that he states "HE" typed it up and he has now copyrighted it, and is "selling" copies of it. This is what makes genealogists NOT want to share their information. When a person takes someone elses work and makes money off of it!!!

Terry Womack

It appears that I am from a "lost branch" of the Womack family tree. I have been unable to find information further back than the following link. My oldest known direct ancestor, Jesse Hellems Womack, was born Jul 09, 1834, in Ohio, and had a brother named William. They had a sister named Mollie Hilton Womack. I do not have the birth place or dates for William or Mollie. Jesse's children were born near Dana, Indiana. I would very much like to complete the family history associated with Jesse, since he is as far as my records go back on direct Womack anecestry. I have quite a few records on other Womack's from about the same time (and some going back to the 1600's), and from the Southeast portion of the United States, but have not made the connection from others to Jesse yet. Please let me know if you have access to any information which might assist me in my search. Thanks, Terry Womack

Jon H. Womack

This is great to have a Womack resource. I come from the Mississippi branch of the tree with Mark Sanders Womack being the head of the family. I have the Webster County History book in which my Great Aunt got a portion of the family history printed. I have Abraham Womack registered as the head of the family in Prince Edward County, VA in 1716. He was born in Suffolk, England in 1683. He was the grandson of William Womack of Norfolkshire England who we have living there in 1550 but I have nothing further back.
