Aubrey J. Womack

[posted by webmaster] Congratulations to Mark, the Web Master, and all contributors for what I have found to be the best page on the web for Womack family research. I have been reviewing this page for a few weeks and have found it excellent. I am a grandson of John Madison (Buck) Womack and request that any of his descendants contact me with info on their families, i.e. all names, birth dates, death dates, marriages, children, grandchildren, etc. I have lost touch with many of them and would like to bring this portion of my record up-to-date. We did not remain in Trinity County, Tx. where Buck and his children were born. The children of John Madison Womack are: Eugene b3-26-1882, Abe b10-1-1884, Lonnie b8-12-1886, Coatney b4-17-1888, William b9-18-1891, Lucas (my father) b8-20-1893, Noah b11-11-1895, John Thomas b9-18-1897, Roena b9-12-1899 and Pearl b9-5-1901. We descend from William as follows: William Womack b c1607 -> Richard Womack 1655-1684 -> Richard Womack II c1676-1723 -> Richard Womack III c1710-c1790 -> David Womack -> David Womack Jr 3-29-1785, 3-1-1854 -> Abner John Womack 1835-1869 -> John Madison Womack 6-9-1858, 11-7-1955 -> Lucas Womack 8-20-1893, 6-3-1971 Thanks in advance, ajwomack@juno.com (I alologize to Aubrey, I had to reformat this message to print on the message page. Any interested parties should contact him straight away...-Mark)

For those Womack's out there that are related to the Bean/Beene line, you might want to check out this homepage: http://www.pearland.com/hokanson/. I'm not related to this line (that I know of anyway) but I remember some people emailing me about the Bean line sometime last year. This link might help... Good luck! -Mark

And in another vein, on that page I just listed it mentions a Jacob Womack (b1740 Lunenburg Co, VA) m Mary Wills with two children: Martha (that married a Robert Bean) and William. In my research in Halifax Co, VA I have found a Jacob Womack listed in the 1765 poll lists. I'm wondering if this is the same Jacob, and if so maybe his son William is my gggg grandfather. Does anyone have any info on this line of Jacob? Thanks! Mark

Mark, in response to question regarding "Jacob", I have a small piece of information. November 6, 1976, Helen Ring Womack (who later wrote "The Womack Trail from VA to TX)wrote to my mother and her three sisters regarding possible ties of the Womacks she was tracing to their grandfather, Jacob Womack. This is taken from the letter: "Of course there were several older Jacob Womacks, the most famous of which was the one who estalished a fort in Sullivan County, Tennessee. There is one quote I have collected from "Historic Sullivan" by Oliver Taylor, page 23: "In the spring of 1767 two years after the first settlers in Sullivan County, Jacob Womack built a fort two miles east of Bluff City on land once owned by Sam Miller. Andrew Crockett brought his family from Ireland in 1769 and forted at Womack's Fort during Indian raids. Here Margaret Crockett, the first white child to be born in Sullivan County, was born." And according to the "Annals of Southwest Virginia (1769-1800)" by Summers, a Jacob Womack was Captain of the Cherokee Expedition of 1776, which listed Jesse Womack as a private." As I have told you, this is not my Jacob as mine was born 17 Aug 1819 supposedly to Green Womack and Mary "Polly" Wallace. I have wanted to get hold of Mrs. Womack's book, but sure would like to see it. Her husband was Arthur Jay Womack and his great grandfather was Achilles b. 25 Dec 1807 in Bedford County, VA d 30 Nov 1897 Texas.

Trying to make the Womack connection! John W. Mick,born 1826 in Illinois married a Sarah J.____born circa 1826 or 1827,Tenn. or Ill., They are found in Polk cty.census 1860 with their children, Charles Robert, Green, Emma A., born in Illinois. A later census finds them with more children. I would like to know if my Sarah J. is a Womack. I think perhaps her father might be Green Womack and her brother Green B of Pope Cty, Ill.Family lore says her last name was Womack. There is a marriage of a John MEEKS to a Sarah Wommack about 1845 in Gallatin cty.Illinois. Sometimes the Mick name has been written as Meeks. I would be pleased if someone can respond to my mystery regarding Sarah. I would like to give her her rightful herritage. Thank you, Mark, for putting together an excellent web site and resource for family historians. It is the most interesting and well done one around! Sincerely, Judith Bader Jones

I'm still working on sorting out the family of Abraham Womack. He married Martha Mitchell in Granville Co., NC in 1764 - had a bunch of kids. Then he supposedly married another Martha and had a bunch more. Now, I'd like to find out a) where the dates given for Martha Mitchell's birth and death date originated - I haven't found an original source noted anyplace, but the dates pop up as far back as 45 years ago. She supposedly died in NC, but there is no index for Granville Co. b) who the second Martha was and what dates and places there are for her birth, marriage and death. And, should anyone have info on the family in general, I'd be happy to hear it. By process of eliminatation, I'm still working on finding out who Martha Mitchell's family was.

Sam Womack

This may be a little touchy and controversial for some of the language I may use! I apologize in advance. But, Dammit! Jacob Womack who had Martha who married Bean__his wife WAS NOT MARY WILLS nor MARY WILLS COLE. Mary was the wife of his first cousin!! Jacob Womack of Wautagua's wife was a MARTHA!! Lets git our dookie in sequence heah! nuf of this dang mis nomer crap! This has gone on far too and much too long! You got a paper document that shows me GGGG-GF was born before 1765 and will eat the dang thang! Well before 1760 enn way! Also, Cole was Mary Wills daughter of George and Mary Whitlock Wills, step father's name!! No more!! ok!!

Roger Womack

Sam, could you explain that one more time!

Date: Feb 9, 1998; 21:49
Sam Womack

Roger, Yes willr repeat as much as I detest repitition..for you to fairly analyze what is being said will number in sequence: (1) Jacob of Watauga, Womacks Fort or what ever..his wife's name was Martha, not Mary. (2) Mary Wills Cole wife of Jacob Womack was not Mary Wills Cole. She was Mary Wills. Cole was her step fathers name. (3) Have seen where someone has her born in 1755, not so! KY 1810 Census for Cumberland Co, has both her and Jacob born between 1765 and 1770. (4) Her other Mary Whitlock Wills married John Cole in Charlotte Co VA Aug 1772. Marriage on record. (5) Mary Whitlock Wills Cole had a will, a copy of which I had and cannot find, but she named her daughter Mary Wills in the will and also named her, her daughter's, husband Jacob Womack.. (6) Jacob Womack's will named his children's aunt, Testimony Wills.. (7) you will not that I have not once used the name Willis as some use; as the name is explicitly WILLS in all documents I have seen.. (8) the other Jacob, Wataugan, was my Jacob's cousin. second as I remmeber. (9) what I am saying here is let lie, some people got the wrong number.. (10) is that clear enough?

I just thought I would let folks know that I have gotten my homepage up and running. If you would like to take a look at my Womack information it is on there. This site has been a great help even though I still have not been able to nail down my Womacks for sure. I do feel that I am getting closer due to all the help I have gotten from the folks on this site. Thanks again and keep up the good work! Jeanie

[posted by Webmaster] Always been interested in research of family history. Incidentally I have my family tree back to circa. 16thC. Originating in Dereham, Norfolk, ENGLAND. Further history takes the WOMACK name to Lopham, S.Norfolk. Members of my family have visited Lopham recently and have come back with a book about the village and its inhabitants. There is one chapter on the Womacks with a couple of photographs of past relatives circa. 19th Cent.

Would love to hear from anyone with ties to any of the TRINITY CO., TX Womacks. I understand that there are a couple of families that were in the county. I am specifically interested in children of Abram James Womack, born 11/23/1817 in Washington Co., AL. In addition, can anyone confirm that Abram is "Indian Abe", son of Jesse? Please email me direct. John

Donna Walker-Nixon

My grandmother's great-grandparents were Aaron Hardin Allard and Polly Weaver. They were born in the late 1790s. Polly Weaver's mother according to family history was Fanny Womack, and she was a full-blood Cherokee. I am interested in finding out more about the Cherokee connection and about any possible Cherokee heritage that there might be in the Womack line. Is this the right place to begin searching? Any help would be greatly appreciated since the only information I have on Fanny Womack is that which I gave above. Also, her husband's name was Elijah Weaver--if that's any help. Many thanks, Donna Walker-Nixon

All: My wife and I were motorcycling through the foothills of Missouri --- enroute from St. Louis to Cape Girardeau --- and came across a little town (well maybe a wide spot in the road) called, "Womack!" It was getting dark and we were running late, so I didn't have enough time to properly investigate Womack, MO, but I intend to go back next summer and do it right. David William Womack

Hi everybody, or as we say down south, ya'll. Wanted to let everyone know that the Womack Family Reunion that's held in McMinnville (Warren Co.) TN is always held on the 3rd Sunday in Oct. If anyone is planing their vacation & wants to be on the mailing list, let me know & I'll forward the info on to the Reunion Planners, who aren't online. This next year will be the 45th! For those of you familar with "The Descendants of Thomas & Louvisa Rice Womack" and the Womack Genealogy Newletters of 1959-1960 (one of which Mark has put on line, bless his heart!), this is where they originated. The reunion is certainly open to any Womacks, but the few that I had the pleasure of meeting last year were all descended from Abner Womack. I understand there's another Womack Reunion in TN, which may be in either Meigs Co or McMinn Co. Does anyone have info about this one?

Date: Feb 26, 1998; 21:19
Jobie Guzman

To Ricky Cole: Would really like more info about which Womack moved from North Texas to Colorado! I have Womacks that migrated from TN to Weatherford TX 1880s. I understand Weatherford was on the cattle drive path. I also heard a rumor that my Burgess Riley Womack had another son, but I haven't found out anything about him. Perhaps your Womack is it?

Sharon Womack

All I know of my heritage, is that I have an Uncle who has a statue of himself (well actually it is the cop who caught him) he was a famous horse thief, in a square in Virginia. My father's name was Hugh Leonard Womack III and my grandfather and ggrandfather are the II and 1st. I was born in Richmond, VA. I am new to the site and am not real familiar with my lineage. My father left when I was young. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.

I saw 2 references to the Womack Reunion in McMinnon, TN. One listed a 2nd Sunday in June while the other listed the 3rd Sunday in Oct. Where and when is it? I would like to take my mother (who turns 78 in a couple of days, 3/1) this year.

Hi again ya'll. This is to help clarify the Womack Reunions. There are two. One is in McMinnville, Warren Co TN the third Sunday in Oct. According to Connie (Little Tn) there's another in Riceville, McMinn Co. Tn the 2nd Sun in June. It's very confusing. The one in McMinnVILLE, is mostly the descendants of Abner Womack/Martha Byars. The one in Riceville (McMinn COUNTY) is the descendants of (James) Alexander Womack. Connie says she'll post more info when she has it & so will I. Meanwhile, if you're interested in the McMinnVILLE Warren Co one, e-mail me.

I am searching for information on Riley Benson Womack Sr. born 3/6/1848 Died 9/28/1919, and his Wife Berthine Eglantine Eaves born 4/13/1856 and died 3/17/1891. Also any information on their daughter Minnie Mae (Womack) Gammons born 5/10/1884 and died Dalton Ga. 3/17/1919. Minnie Mae was possibly living with her relations at the time of her death since her husband had died earlier at Red Oak. Oklahoma..
