I have just received information that the name of the first wife of Abraham (son of immigrant) and mother of his children was Sarah WORSHAM b. ca 1644, dau of John William WORSHAM b. ca 1625, Charles City, Jordan Parish, VA, d. bef 1661 in Henrico Co., VA and Elizabeth LITTLEBERRY, b. 1623, d. 23 sep 1678, Henrico Co., VA. It has been accepted by most researchers that he (may) have married his headright, Sarah Sumerseals/Sumerscales, sometime between 1688-1691, which would have been too late for her to have been the mother of his children and that he must have married before her. Has anyone ever heard of Sarah WORSHAM as his first wife?

Should have mentioned before, my homepage can be found on FTM under Connie's Family Homepage.. Also, for all of you Polk County, Tn researchers...Viola Jones has just had her book, "Polk County, Tn Marriage Records, 1894-1970" reprinted. This book is available for $28.00. Has Womac/Womacks listed. If you wish to order this book, please contact me and I will give you her address & phone number. She is not online. She also has published other books for genealogy purposes. I am not affiliated with Viola or any publishing company, just thought this might be of interest to other researchers.

They had 9 children and ended up in Texas. Our family records have shown Abram's Father as Richard IV, but I recently found a listing of Richard's children and Abram was not listed. Can anyone a: verify that Richard is NOT Abram's father, or b: let me know who Abram's father is? Drop me a line!

Hello! My lst cousin Ray Bryan WOMACK introduced me to genealogy five years ago and I haven't recovered since. I don't really get into the WOMACKS because that's not our common line, but I know there are many connections between our branches. I am researching SCHMIDT, HARPER, COLLINS, FORRESTER, PHILLIPS in western NC, eastern Tn, northern Ga. For example, my gggrandfather (John) Pleasant HARPER, b abt 1825 in Cocke Co, lived, however, in Bradley Co, Tn, d as Union soldier 14 Apr 1865 in Stark's Landing, Al. He was married to Sarah FORRESTER, b abt 1824, prob in eastern Tn. Would like to exchange with persons working on these names. Thanks, Mary Anne Burkhart Kuebel (living in Germany over 26 yrs.)

September 24, 1997 As a new internet user I hope I'm doing the right thing. I have gathered genealogical data from several sources and have traced my WOMACK roots back to Rankin Co. and Simpson Co., MS from Trinity Co., TX. My ggfather came to TX as a young boy with his father Wm. B. Womack and several wagons of other Womacks including his mother Sarah who was married to David Womack. I am having difficulty proving that Wm. B. was David's son as I have no census records or birth certificate. My father was Wm. Charles, gfather was Wm. Nathan, ggfather Wm. Henry, gggfather Wm. B. Womack. Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

I am trying to locate his parents John Franklin Womack and Rhoda Gertrude Black who should have been in Fannin Co. by 1900. I could really use the help! Thanks, Jeanie Hill
