Re: Sam's message of 3/27. Good thought, I hope that it can be accomplished. I know that a lot of folks have done some digging on their own and are reluctant to distribute it widely in fear that someone will publish a book for monetary reasons. This is a problem that I currently face with my mother's family genealogy; a book is in process. I will probably help on this effort as I believe there is false or incompete information that will be published. Maybe this is how we should all look at the scenario: if it is going to be published, let's get it right the first time. Best regards to all. I really enjoy reading over the messages posted herein.

Regarding Robert's message about other's publishing one's data: Make sure that copyright notices are prominently displayed on anything published on the web or otherwise. Sharing a few dates here and there is no big deal. But if you are going to do hard research and then make it available to others, then you need to put in a copyright. You'll notice a copyright notice on all WGN features and sources. It's there for a reason. If someone uses it, the author has recourse if they choose to enforce their copyright. But if you don't care if anyone uses it, then don't worry about it. One thing I would like to see more of is people self-publishing their research. It doesn't have to be hard-bound, professional, for-profit publishing. It's hard for me to beleive there is a profitable market in much of this Womack data. Instead publish a soft-bound version, make it available to those that want it, and then give it to the LDS library with permission for them to transfer it to microfilm. It will be available to other researchers FOREVER. You will go down in posterity. Future descendants will honor your name. You get the idea. That is what I am planning to do with the books I publish. Just some thoughts. -Mark

Ok, there are many of us who have homepages. Mark was discussing the possibiity of having to move from AOL because of limitations and the upload probs..I have did a bit of surfing, and have came up with 5 sites that list places where free space, from a little to as much as 10mb, is available, Some offer "X"mb free with addons for a small premium(geocities i.c. 6mb free, for $4.95 more, you got 20mb). I have signed on with both geocities and tripod..both support ftp upload, freeform or easy webpages, subdirectories,etc.. the URL where I have placed the consolidated list is at: http://members.tripod.com/~dubbie/websites/index.htm Sorry for the long wind. But ran across a URL that had some Winn Parish, LA members of some Company K with a link back to another unit..not sure of which war and didnt pursue. But, this list had some Allens and about 5 Womacks on it. see at http://members.tripod.com/~pipeslines/k.html Happy Huntin and get all the freebies ya kin whilst they be theah!!

JW On the crest, dont sent money, put in any name and the only difference is a couple words and the name is always highlighted..at present there is no KNOWN Womack crest, there was a fake some time back entered in the Womack Genealogy Newsletters....the only way to find if there is one is to send to the master of the whatever that keeps the heraldry in England..I am sure many have done so, but no crest yet.....

Regarding the Womack Coat of Arms: I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the arms that Sam has mentioned. I don't know if anyone knows if it is the real one or not. I will post it as a feature article in the near future for others to see. Also, I would be leary of any company that will give you your complete 'family history' and 'coat of arms'. They are interesting, but I don't know how accurate those are either. The best description of the origins of the Womack name that I have found is in Carlose Womack's _Descendants of William and Mary Jane Womack_. It is available through your local Family History Center and the LDS call number is listed in the WGN Bibliography. -Mark

Hi, For those that might be interested, I took Carolyn Powell's advice and ask for a look up in ALA. As a result, William R. Womack finally showed up somewhere. He is listed in the Old Records of Jackson Co, ALA as an original land owner of 40.10 1/2 acres in Twp 3 South Range 7 East Section 7. Certificate # 12085 dated 24 Dec 1838. I am going to try and get a copy of the deed to see if this being recorded at this late date because he is getting ready to sell and move to MO.

Hi, I am still trying to locate my Womacks origins. I have recently recieved a copy of my Grandfather's orginal social security application and on this he stated that he was born in Nashville, AR on Oct. 25,1903 and that his parents names were John Franklin Womack and Rhoda Black Asque. He filed for his social security in Ashdown, AR and was workig for Gibbs Cooperage Co. The date is 1-16-1937. If any of this information rings a bell with anyone I sure would appreciate it if you would get in touch with me. I am going to update my homepage as soon as I can get some more facts. Thanks so much to everyone who has responded in the past. It is great to see that there are so many others out there searching too! Thanks again, Jeanie

I just thought I would bring some of you up to date on WM R WOMACK. Still looking of course, but at the local library today, I found the reference to the land in Jackson Co. ALA. His name is listed as William Rowland Womack. Does this ring a bell with anyone? I also found Abner Clements Womack buying land in Jackson Co. ALA 1836; William Womack 1830; Jesse B. 1836; Drury 1832; Jesse 1832. All of this land was located in Twp 3 Range 6 E except for WR which was Range 7E. Also, found Levi B. Womack purchasing land from the Lusk/Lisk couple in 1835 and just Levi Womack purchasing land from Rhoda Collier in 1835. This was of interest because WM R. is given letters of Administration in 1871 in Ste Genevieve Co. MO for Levi B. Womack. This is only the second time I have seen a Levi B. in all the Womack information that I have looked into.

Looking for last name of Hannah ? who married Wm. R. Womack c 1828-1830, in what is now called Smithville, TN. Wm. R. (10/20/1807, Rowen, N.C.) had a small son, Francis Marion at that time. Would also like to know what R. stands for, and name of Wm. R. and Hannah's parents. After their marriage they moved to Jackson Co, AL and had several children, then migrated to MO where Hannah had several more children before her death c 1852-1854.

I thought this was the best way to get this information to the largest number of Womack types. I received today from UNC Chapel Hill's library a bunch of letters from John Warburton Womack to his brother Jacob Lewis Womack ranging from 1831-1860. These are in the collection of Gen. Marcus Wright's papers in the Southern Historical Collection. The first point is that John writes to Jacob concerning the death of their brother Mansel Nolan Womack - he died in Greene Co., AL on Jan 6 1842. Therefore, he could NOT be the M. Womack in household 2 in the 1850 census of Butler Co., AL with wife Martha and children Victoria and Virginia. It's possible, however, that that M. Womack is actually Abraham Mitchell (known as Mitchell) Womack, yet another brother to this bunch. Also to the point is that in another letter, John states that he wrote a letter for his Aunt Lucretia Howard in 1825. (Jacob found it and was returning it - John sent a note thanking him) The problem here is that previously it has been thought that since she wasn't mentioned in her father's will in 1797 in Hancock Co., GA, but her daughter Betsy was, that she must have died. However,if John is writing letters for her in 1825, then maybe something peculiar is going on. So, Lucretia could be in NC, SC, AL or GA (John traveled a bit during that particular period )- first name of Lucretia's husband is unknown - but keep your eyes open for her after 1790 or so and see if she turns up!

Regarding my message posted April 4th 1998 on Womack family crest, thanks to those who responded. Out of curiosity, I did purchase a copy of the "Womack Family Crest" from the internet site I listed in my prior message. Interestingly, the motto is quoted as "Esse Quam Videri", Latin for 'to be, rather than to seem', which also happens to be the state motto of North Carolina. For the skeptics, perhaps that was the source for the quote on the crest if the crest is a fake. On the other hand, perhaps a Womack inspired the state when North Carolina was created as an American state. Also, I recently spoke to a doctor who trained at the Womack hospital on one of the military bases in North Carolina.

I am the daughter of ALBERT HOWARD WOMACK. I am looking for information on my great-grandfather, ELLIS SNOW WOMACK (born around the late 1890's to the early 1900's). He divorced my great-grandmother, Margorie (who later married a BEARD), before my grandfather, BILLY HOWARD WOMACK, was born. My grandfather only knows a little bit of information about him. ELLIS SNOW WOMACK was born around the Warren Co., TN area (possibly Coffee Co. or Cannon Co.). After he divorced my great-grandmother, he remarried and had children by his second wife. He lived in Rutherford Co., TN, and died before he reached his 50th birthday from a liver disease. If you can help me find information on his descendants, I would appreciate it greatly!

Concerning this "family crest" thing. I sent an E mail to the College of Heraldry in the UK..I got a very interesting answer that I will extract part for you here. >How can an individual ask if one name is on any list of heraldry in the UK? Because names do not have a coat of arms attached to them. A coat of arms legally belongs to someone who has had a coat of arms granted or confirmed to him and to his male legitimate descendants only. Let me give you an example.....there were two brothers, John Smith and Bill Smith. John was granted a coat of arms. Both brothers had in the course of time children and grandchildren. Along comes Fred Smith, great-grandson of John Smith and Jo Smith, great grandson of Bill Smith. Now Fred can quite legally use his great grandfather's arms, but they cannot be used by Jo, even though he has the same surname as Fred and is in fact Fred's second cousin. He has no descent from the grantee John Smith and so has no legal right to use what he might describe as "the Smith coat of arms". In this context, he is the "wrong" Smith!! Does that make sense? >I am looking for one name, WOMACK; the family as a whole. Why? What makes you think that all Womacks are related to each other and form one big family? There might have been several different families, totally unrelated, that adopted the surname Womack. >There is some controversy here in America over a crest (which many think a >fake); and those that may be obtained from some genealogical place that says >they can supply famiy crests.. Shopping mall heraldry! A load of c**p!!! >If there is one, we will gladly contact the College and remit the necessary >fees for a copy that we can display..Can you assist? >Thank You.. >Sam Womack >Gilbert AZ USA Having read my comments, please come back to me if you want to.

I'm looking for any connection to Ezekial Womack, who married Mary Elizabeth Winslett in Putnam County, Georgia on, I think May 3, 1846. I only have Ezekial Womack's name from a family bible record, have been unable to find anything about him. Their daughter, Mattie Elizabeth Womack married by greatgrandfather, William Bell Parker. William Bell Parker's obituary said he was a native of "Spaulding" (Georgia, I suppose, though I don't know if that means Spalding County, Paulding County, or if there is actually a Paulding, Ga. I can't find a Paulding, Ga. Anyway, if any other Womack researchers know of Womacks in any of these counties, or Ezekial Womack specifically, I would appreciate having the information passed along to me. Thanks!

I am looking for books, essays, notes on the Womack family from time of immigration through Virginia and moving out across the country. My grandfather was James Rufus Womack and was born in 1898 somewhere around Rockhingham, NC. Granddaddy always said, "If a Womack is here, he wants to be over there." I guess that explains why Womacks have spread from coast-to-coast. Any information to help me start my research would be greatly appreciated.

I've been meaning to comment on the message that Sam Womack posted about the Womack coat of arms. Sam, the person that replied to you with all those answers seemed to imply that only direct descendants of a person that had received a coat of arms could claim it as their own. Well, I think we can assume that most Womack's are descended from William Womack, The Immigrant. So, the question remains: Was William Womack able to make any claims to a coat of arms? If so, then so can the rest of us... Just a thought, Mark.

Mark, Good idea, think I will jsut sit down this weekend and send another mail to the guy and ask if ANY Womack was granted arms so we can see if we descend from him. Tell em no harm done, either we be or we dont be!! Ennyway, I aint quitting nuthin, y'all know this stuff too much in the blood! Ann, this time Crumpton, made a suggestion of possibility of a Womack Obit Page.. past and not so past.. any comments on that ?? And all, as far as queries and answers, lets keep them here on WGN, that is what Mark set it up for and we all need to support that..I have gotten one or two in guestbooks...
