I found an interesting site: This is a list of Confederate Pension applications. There are 46 Womack's listed, some of which may interest John Dolliver as he is asking about Trinity Co., Texas. It should be of interest to all Texas researchers.

Hi, Anybody out there doing Wamacks (Womacks) in Prince George County, VA.? I'm back to Burwell Wamack (c1750-1819) who was a guard at the Prince George goal (jail). His son, Samuel Wamack (1791-1859) also of PG County, is my gggfather. Would appreciate and enjoy sharing with anyone having info on these two souls. Also for anyone from Virginia, where would the PG jail be in say 1770?town-wise? Thanks for your help, Gloria Perry

Robert Womack or

I have really enjoyed the last couple of days of looking at some of the data found here-in. I am especially looking forward to a visit to the 2-Womack family reunions. If I only knew which one to try to attend. I am a descent of John Hawkins Womack who was born in 1832 (IAW 1860 census Franklin Co. TN) or 1834 (IAW the 1870 census Franklin Co.) and married a Caroline C. (Cassy) Morris (1835-1903) (IAW the book "James Hart and his Descendants"). The book also lists a Hawkins Womack whose lans was ajacent to John H. I have been unable to find a link to any parent or grandparent of John H. Womack. ANY help would be highly appreciated. Best regards to all, RFW

Everett Womack

I am new to the WGN and wanted to post some information that I have which is not much. My dad was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1882 and died in Portland, Oregon in 1973. His parents I believe were James Womack/Francis Elizabeth but I am not positive. He had three brothers Jack, William, Robert and possibly a sister named May He had 3 childres from his first marriage who were Robert William, Frank Marcus & Estella. I was his only child from his second marriage and my Name is Everett Dallas. Dad worked on leather belts used in the industrial area. It seems that none of us has any information and what we do have is fragmented on our family and would like to know some more if anyone has any information

Cindy Womack Blakesley

I have a problem that has been haunting me for years, any help that anyone out there can give me would be GREATLY appreciated. My search for my Womack ancest- ors is at a halt with my ggrandfather who was Plenny Virgil Womack b.28Mar1871 d.23Dec1934. According to his death certificate his father was William Womack born in Mississippi and his mother was Rachel Watts born in Tx. According to my great aunt PV spent his whole life searching for his father because his mother hid her children from their father all their lives. PV is supposed to have a sister but no one knows her name or what happened to her. I know I'm connected to all of you I would like to know how. Thanks for this opportunity to try and find out.

Eleanor Womack Draper

David, Well, you were right about the wide spot in the road! My Womack family is descended from the Ste Genevieve County bunch, William R "Buck" Womack being the patriarch. I have strong suspicions but can't yet prove a relationship to the Robert Marion Womack family who established a post office in "Flatwoods" in 1892. When the charter was received from the USPS, the town became known as Womack. Robert's son Levi J was the first postmaster, he was born between 1854-1875. (I may have more detailed info in another reference book, right now I have a ring binder perched on my lap with a history of the Griffith family, who was later connected to the Womacks) At any rate, Levi was the first postmaster, his father Robert Marion was Justice of the Peace in Perry and Ste Gen counties, and associate judge of St Gen Co from 1890-1892. Sometime later he assumed postmaster duties from his son. Don't know why. Later on, duties passed to the Moore family (a female descendant of Womacks) There really isn't anything in Womack today but a few houses, and as I understand no Womacks living there (as of 1986). It is a beautiful area. I would love for someone to help me establish a relationship between Robert Marion and William R. I think they are probably first cousins. If I remember right, Robert Marion is descended from Thomas and Louvisa. But William and Robert are roughly the same age, named their kids the same names, came to the area about the same time from about the same place. If you or anyone else has info, I'd be happy to trade and search my info further for exact details. Happy hunting, cousins!

Jo Ann Harshaw

To Eleanor Womack Draper re your message 3-5-98 My Womack family is descended from the Ste. Genevieve Co. bunch, also. Wm. "Buck" was my gggrandfather. Buck was married to Sarah McBee. Robert Marion's father was the son of William and Savannah Womack. Have you seen the book "St. Genevieve County Families"? It has a lot of info on the Robert Marion branch. Also, the Womack Genealogy Newletters that Mark is putting on the web page has an account of Wm. "Buck" and his parentage. His parents were William and Lucy. See page 103-113. Let me know if you have any other info and I will gladly do the same.

Pete and Dana Womack

I visit this site often to see if anything sounds familiar - nothing so far, but I don't have a lot of info to go on. My father is Richard Norton Womack - b. 1920 in Okla. City, OK, m. Mary Margaret Hanraty in 1943. He had 1-brother Robert, 3-sisters Catherine, Mary Louise, and Ann. His father was Richard N. Womack (not sure what N stands for) and his mother was Margaret Clara Boylen (adopted). We think they were from Missouri. If anyone knows anything about this line, I would appreciate any information.

Marilyn Womack Avila

Researching Womacks in Georgia. Sketchy genealogy passed down from a great-aunt shows the following: Beginning with my father, Noyce Womack b. 8/18/1920; gf Logan Womack b. 4/13/1890 d. 8/10/1972; ggf Frederick (Fred) Womack b. 3/11/1859 d. 9/7/1915; gggf William Wesley Womack b. ca. 1824 d. 3/17/1866; ggggf Thomas Womack b. ca. 1786 d. ca. 1837. At this point it gets a little fuzzy but looks like my gggggf was Abraham Womack who was in Georgia as early as 1764. Is anyone else following this line? Also what is the story with Lawrence Womack, the bishop?

Because of an apparent controversary and me being mislead and having informatrion withheld for years, I am deleting all my WOMACK data from the web. Please delete my URL from the WGN.. And, last but not least, JACOB WOMACK DID NOT MARRY MARY COLE! An impossibility as her mother did not marry the guy that was supposedly her father till 18 Aug 1772 and she was born between 1760 and 1770-some accomplishment huh?? Y'all have fun researching this bunch, I will continue to do so as a lone wolf. But can no longer accept this obviously inaccurate assessment of a family matriarch!

I received this email sometime back. It is in regards to the Womack Genealogy Newsletters that I am working to get online. Thought it would be of interest to all of you: " (Steve Womack) Mark, I wanted to thank you for your recognition of my Grandfather's work on family history. I am Oscar Womack's grandson and I remember as a little boy how hard he worked and how important family history was to him. He was the editor of the Womack newsletter that you included in the page. Ida Lee Womack Deadmon, Oscar's widow, passed away two weeks ago and and closed a wonderful chapter in the family history. I still know some of the older Womacks in the McMinnville area that were involved in this work. If I can help you with your research, let me know. Grandpa traced our line back to Thomas and Lovisa Rice Womack, which was my GGG grandfather and mother. Do you know if anyone has been successful in going back any farther? Thanks again."

Yes!!!!! Sam, you have a great idea. I have been beating my head against the wall because I have not been able to get any further proof beyond my great grandfather being Jacob Womack of Boone & Callaway Co., MO. It does seem that his father was Green Womack of IL and Putnam Co., MO, but I still have no documentation. All of the earlier generations of Womacks in VA & NC & blah, blah, blah or absolutely no good to me unless I can connect my Jacob to parents! Thank you for the suggestion and I hope everyone will take it to heart.

I just got off the phone with a Bob Womack in Suttercreek, CA. A descendant of Green Womack, he told me a story passed down through the family. I was wondering if anyone had any information on this: About 1838 Levi Preston Womack b abt 1830, and a neighbor Mandy Hunter were captured by the Indians, they were traded and released five years later. Several years after Levi's release he went back and had a male child with an Indian girl before he married Ann Marie Plaster, the childs name was Tom Hyde, who later became head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Apparently a book has been written about this incident.

Roger Womack: A story re Levi Preston Womack, b 7 Aug 1830 or 25 Aug 1829 was in a book, "Womack Genealogy" by Maxine Hulse Tinkham. This may not be the exact one your friend referred to but this is what Maxine said: "A story has been told that Levi Preston Womack and a Hunter girl, were kidnapped by the Indians in Illinois as chidren. The boy was allowed to ride a pony to camp, but the girl was made to walk behind the pony, even tho Levi asked that she be able to ride behind him. Levi had a child (son) by an Indian girl. Later when the parents found them, they paid the Indians for their release." Levi died 3 Nov 1905 in Cottonwood, CA. He and Ann Plaster moved to Cottonwood in 1849.

In reference to the message posted by Ernest L. Womack. In some information I've gathered (not documented) a John Newton Womack, who married (1st) Julie Ann Scott: (2nd) Rebecca Ann Lowery. I sent him what info I had, but don't have much on that line. Maybe some of you researchers have something on John Newton rather than Newton, He is listed as the son of Thomas Womack, sp Elizabeth Blanton.
