I am searching for Mary T. Womack. She had five siblings, George, Bob, John, Sallie, and Mattie. Mary married Hugh Rogers and had eight children, the youngest being Lydia Alma(4 Mar 1892/Bay Springs, Miss.(?) - 26 Aug 1961/ Houston, Texas.) Lydia Alma is my wife's Grandmother. I am also inquiring into the Pucketts in that I am the gg grandson of Daniel Miles Puckett(5 Oct 1814,S.C. - 3 Aug 1859, Union Parish, La.)

In response to Sam's suggestion of a WOMACK obit page..I think it is a GREAT idea.. I would be willing to contribute any of the obits I have..Even if all 150+ Womack researchers just contribute a few each..that could add up to a LOT...

Along the same thinking as the obit page, how about cemetery listings? I know Mark does have some but I bet there are a lot more out there. I have one of Cedar Bluff Cemetery, Greene Co., MO if anyone is interested.

Also for Jimmy Pillow, I have the same family Roger mentions with a few differences. William Pinckney Womack, (son of Nathan & Louvisa Womack) and his wife, Keturah Jecofa (Allen) had the following children: Mary Triphenie, John Andrew, George Washington, Mattie "Martha", Sarah "Sallie" William Robert and Griffina.

I just got back from the FHC, finished copying the soundex cards for AR Womacks fot 1900..eyeballs a bit poppin but hope to get them transcribed on disk and uploaded to the site this weekend--they will be in the 1880-1920 area. When I ge tovah this one will go aftah 1910, then 20.. I already have about 5-6 obits ready to go and will probably start the page this wekend and up load those I have. Now to reply to Barbara--Barbara that Mary Isabella who married Scott Powell was a sister to my GGG-GF Thomas P.. Also I think I have the Goodson line a ways back as it ties in with another of mine and William and Anna Goodson Womack are in that file also-- I am trying to find the file where I saw Thomas carried back to Ole Will,, Will do that eventually and throw it out fer debate.. Anyway, lets keep them queries and replies heah and keep this the bestest dang family net in cyperspace!!

At this point, I'm not really sure who was looking for what on this family, so I'll post it here. Carlos Womack's book has Griffina as #13165, and her father William Pinkney Womack as #7523. He's got 2 marriages for William Pinkney as follows - m1) Keturah Allen b. 17 July 1861 children 1) George Washington - died in TX 2) William Robert - died in TX 3) John Andrew - died in TX 4) Griffina m. Hugh Rogers (no further info on this line) 5) Sarah "Sallie" m. Kade Lancaster moved to TX 6) Martha "Mattie" m. General Strother William m2) Lydia MOORE b. 1837 d. 1912 children 7) Turner Horatio b. 1868 d. 1954 m2 times, buried Booneville Cemetery 8) Samantha "Cissy" b. 1871 d. 1903 m. James Eaton buried Allen Line Cemetery 9) James Fletcher b. 1872 d. 1958 m. Verna Wright buried Marietta Cemetery 10) Leanardis Monroe "Lee" b. 1874 d. 1952 m. Ada Hughes buried Booneville Cemetery 11) Ella b. 1878 d. 1910 m. Dr. W. Monroe, she's buried in Marietta Cemetery he remarried and moved to CA. Now, the whole reason I happened to notice these messages was the Hugh Rogers. I'll check my Rogers stuff and see if this was yet another Rogers/Womack connection in the greater Rogers family that I keep track of, although it's not one I know of off hand. If anyone wants to know the ancestry of this William as listed in Carlos' book, drop me an email and remind me of the # I used up above as a reference. Ann

Anyone looking for land records of WOMACKS in ARK, MO, ALA, MS should check out the site Mostly you have to put the name WOMACK in the Patentee blank and click on genealogical research. I have found many many records.

Hi Everyone, I have just created a "WOMACK SURNAME WEB RING" in the hopes of connecting all of our web sites together here on the world wide web! If you would like to join the web ring go to the address above. For those of you who do not know about web rings, it is a banner/form/graphic that you place on your web page. From this, people can surf the ring to the next "WOMACK" site, and on and on. Every site in the ring WILL pertain to WOMACK genalogical information. Here's hoping we can track down every WOMACK on the Internet! Right now it only has two sites...both mine.. cause it's bran spanking new! I hope I have everything worked out right and it should work just fine. OK, kin folks, lets get connected!! Markie

Date: May 4, 1998; 15:13

Concerning the obit page, I could create another page, similar to the message page where people could post obits that they find. It would be dynamic, and would not require anyone to keep an HTML page up to date. Please let me know via email or this page. I can set it up with the next site update. -Mark

Date: May 5, 1998; 14:23

I don't think there is a limit on obituary info. They are not like articles. People could post obit info they find during their research. I'm think of expanding it to a series of pages: one for obits/death records/cemetery listings, one for births/birth records, and another for miscellaneous items (like Womack's mentioned in books or magazine articles). People could enter info as they find it. It would be a little jumbled, but at least people could search it. Does anyone have an opinion? -Mark

Connie Baumann

Mark, I think your idea of the new obit, bith records, Great!!

Date: May 5, 1998; 20:04
Joyce Wommack

I like the idea of seperate birth / death pages, that way we could search the page for what we happen to be looking for at the moment and not have to go through them all. Also, I think past and current would be good. This WGN page may still be going after we are all gone and our descendants would thank us for it!

Markie Owen

Mark, I think the obit/birth/misc pages are a great idea. As far as them being a little jumbled, I have a small hint that may help some. I learned a while ago, some of you I'm sure already know this, when you are viewing a page using Netscape, you can click on "edit" then click on "find in a page"... a box will come type in the name you are searching for... and netscape will search the page for you, instead of you having to read the whole page. You have the option of clicking on "down" the page, or "up" the page. Most of the pages I just type in my Surname but in this case "WOMACK" wouldn't work to good I don't think! :) So maybe just type in the first name... Richard... David... Abraham.. etc. Hope this help some. Markie

I belong to the "Brown Family Genealogical Society". Today while reading the latest issue I came across the following; " Married in this place on Tuesday evening the 2nd instant, by the Rev. Mr. Hadden, JESSE WOMACK, Esq. Sheriff of Sumter County, to Miss Julia Ann BROWN. ........No union could be more blessed---no couple more fortunate" This was taken from the "Voice of Sumter" Livingston, ALA, Tuesday January 9, 1838. I hope this helps someone.

January, February, and March messages have been moved to the message archives. This page has been so busy I figured I better get ahead in archiving to make some room. The site will be updated this weekend with new researchers and new links. Thanks forr your support! -Mark

Ann Crumpton

Mark, I really like the way the WGN has expanded and grown. You have done a wonderful job. Because of various reasons, I have not been able to contribute like I wanted to, but hopefully that will change soon. I also like the idea of having pages where we can enter death, birth and miscellaneous information. What about adding a page for marriages, also. I know some marriages or on CD's, but not all because as we know many records have been destroyed in various ways. But there might be a Bible record, family history, probate, land or other record that gives this information. You might want to specify that the record be of this type. I'll leave that to your discretion. Thanks again for all you do for us.

Anyone wanting, will send zipped copy of the FULL Womack genealogy from the "RAW" text scanned original 159 or so pages; also the original scanning of the "RAW" text of Cherry Grove..ensure your server will accept large attached files.up to 800Kb at least.. When I figure out why the 1900 soundex census card info keeps looking like someone threw a grenade in it instead of looking like the lined up version on Claris and a text/doc file..will load them. The 1910 and 1920 will have to wait a spell..taking a sabbatical from uploading and/or researching Womack for awhile and concentrating on related lines.. All data on-line, with a couple exceptions, will not be updated for the distant future....

Okay, I am confused here..Just reading back thru messages on WGN..Who is going to have the obits page? Sam Womack states he is going to start one, yet this page is also..Will these be connected or combined? I have obits that I don't mind sending to either/or both sites.. Come on Womack researchers...We need your input. Mark nor Sam can do this alone.. How many others out there have obits, marriage, birth, etc ...records they will be willing to send?..

Am looking for relatives of my mother Jean Womack or Wozniak. She was born in Camria county, Pennsylvania on Jan. 6, 1903. She often talked of her father being a baker and living near Johnstown, Pa. She had brothers and sisters, of how many I do not know.

Date: May 10, 1998; 17:06

OK, Mark made a constructive suggestion that I have followed..take a look at the new look of the page where the Arkansas stuff is and what little other that I have been able to dig up so far from other areas..or people,,, I think you will find it much easier to use..I do apologize for the way the 1900 soundex card info wont believe the probs after almost 6 hours going over the microfilm and writing them down--then transcribing to a disk and then having them lookin great on disk then upload to web and kablooey!! then tried Claris home page and no better that before--So I put it out there where it can be used until I figure a way to line it up as close to the 1880 as possible.. would like feed back on way it is lined up now--

Re: Obit/Etc pages. I am going to setting up seperate pages on the WGN site that will work like this message page. But each page will be dedicated to specific types of information: 1) Obits/Deaths Records/Cemetery Listings; 2) Birth Announcements/Records; 3) Marriage Announcements/Records; 4) Miscellaneous Listings. I am doing this regardless of Sam's noble efforts (which I appluad and support). But these new pages will be meant more for single or several items that people have run across in their research, not tons of items from the same family or county/state. If anyone has a large collection of these records that are related to each other by family or subject, then I would prefer to see them put up on the internet as their own web page, similar to the other sources that are already available on the WGN site (and on Sam's). Whether they are available from the WGN site, Sam's site, or someone else's site, I don't really care. I'm not picky about that. The more the merrier. As long as somebody takes responsibility for it and sends me a link, I'll add it to the WGN site. Does that clear things up? -Mark

Date: May 11, 1998; 02:06

All that being said above, I want everyone to remember that I am always open, and always have been, to publishing up items from Womack researchers for either the Sources or Feature sections of the WGN website. The only restrictions are that it cannot be copyrighted material. This usually means: a) You did all or most of the research yourself and are not re-publishing someone else verbatim; or b) The item was published prior to 1960 and the copyright has expired. So, a large collection of vital records that you have researched in the original records is a good thing. Copying items from a book or pamphlet published after 1960 is not. I think that Sam has shown that a lot can be done when one puts one's mind to it. So, if you have any items that you would like to share with others, let me know. Authors maintain their copyright on the material. I or the WGN do not maintain ownership. The WGN is as strong as its members. -Mark

Walter Womack: Please contact me. The email address you gave me sometime back when I added you to the WGN researchers list is incorrect. Please email me to correct it. Thanks -Mark

Mark, Great..Now for those of you afraid of a web page afraid of no space etc, remember for those of you on AOL you have 10mb, 2mb per screen name.. You can do one maid page then link to others as you do them..try not to put too large of items (like I frequently do) and you will be surprised at how much you can do..I have about 8 mb left on AOL, I have about 15 total directories on Tripod, yet have used only 2.5 mb space. Geocities I have used 8mb out of 20. Remember, Geocities offers 6mb free; Tripod 5 mb free, and there are others out there..If you ATT as a server, you got the space is not a problem. AOL and Tripod probably have the best user friendly get going for novice page builders I have seen..I hear the FTM page is no slouch but havent used mine there from 4,0 yet (3.4 neither)..ONE THING!! do not call your areas storage areas..they are home pages and informational pages...So, what y'all waiting fer?

[posted by webmaster] 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.

Hello, Boy this is a great website! A little overwhelming to someone just starting out on her Womack ancestors. My 2nd great grandmother was Amanda Jane Haddock. Amanda Jane was the daughter of John D. Haddock and Martha M. Womack. Martha Womack (b. 1830 , d. 1907 St. Genevieve Co MO) was the daughter of William R. Womack and Hannah?

Well, well, a year old already. Where has the time gone? Sure does fly when you are having fun! Thanks to Mark for all the hard work that has gone into providing this resource for all of us. Thanks also to all the contributors and researchers. It has been a great year and I am looking forward to the next one. I would also like to say a special thanks to Sam for his contributions. I picked up some new marriage dates for my Greene Co., Mo people. Thanks Sam. I am also looking forward to the new obit/death/birth/marriage, etc pages however they are put together. (I like the idea of seperate pages). I think, tho I have not tried it, that my database will sort and export my names and specific dates and location only. I could then delete the ones with no dates and share what I come up with. Is this what we are talking about?

Mark, Sam, Ann, Jode, Mary, Jean, Joyce and the rest of the contributors I really appreciate this page. I am housebound and this source of information has become invaluable to me. I have met some relatives I didn't know existed; some close relatives and some not as close. Everyone has been very helpful in trying to find info I requested. A source of info on obits, deaths, etc. would be a highly prized resource. Again thanks to all of you who have so graciously helped all of us. It is appreciated.

1> Mark- will do, but he appears to be a stuffy old bird--will try on the crest thang! 2>Cecil-corrections are appreciated - however, those names are exactly as taken from the marriage CDs. I did no editing on them whatoever other than lose the soundex codes--wit till you see the MidaCode Index I am puttin up when the server gets its bug out--you think transcription has reached new heights of mispelling, misnumbering--I have put the info down exactly as the cards were, and remember the 1910 Miracodes are typed not handwritten--the only way to get it really straight is to see the real census data as referenced--and I found at least one peson in one county that wasnt on the Miracode Index at all!! Happened to run across whilst looking at some data on me own family.. I will keep your info and perhaps just put the corrections in parens after the way they appear on the cards?

1910 Miracode Index for 1910 AR Womack's on line!! Also moved The Wonderings but they are still accessible thru the same page jes one moah click is all.. Found out that if you save an htm/html page and then bring up in Excel Word Perfect, you can edit is as if it were an on line page (Excel will also convert to htm/html from raw text)..when I edited the 1910 for about the 12th time (yes at least that many) to get the columns lined up, worked like a charm!! Wordperfect will also create tables for you without all the hassle of the syntax too! Hey, I lucked out nevah really tried it but got desperate for anything to make that stuff look bettah (still gone go back and redo a couple, latah) Y'all keep on truckin and keep on searchin" Y'heah!!

Sam, I don't believe you have to pay for being able to see World Family Tree. I recently downloaded a gedcom file that had some of my ancestors on it and I sure didn't pay for it. Of course, I certainly don't think some one should take an entire file and submit it as their own. I have hesitated in submitting our "Trees" to FTM or "Ancestry" mainly because not all of the information is documented and I'm tired of incorrect data being passed around. I enter what I find, BUT I make a note of the "Source" and where I got it, how good of a Source is it, etc. As you know, not everyone does that! It should be very easy to find out who sent yours in as the Submitter email address is given with the Gedcom file to download. Good luck!

Stacy--somewhere heah, and gotta look some, theah is a dishcarge or service record from the Union on an Alexander Womack, methinks of Utah--and some small other information--living descendants still there--keep gently reminding me and will send as soon as I can find.. On the Jesse James/Womack/Cole relationship-- There is a book, and very stupidly I did not write down the title/author 24 years ago, that relates how Jesse lived with a Family of Womacks while hiding out in SW MO--it tells he taught Sunday School and singing while was there. When he was leaving, some of the Womack boys wanted to ride with him; but, he wouldnt let them--if anyone knows the title of this book please let me know-- Elizabeth Jones Norman (GGG-GM), mother in law of me GG-GF Samuel M Womack, was reputedly a cousin of the James brothers--remember I said reputedly and the tale goes about a 2nd cuz--

In Sam's latest message he refers to "an Alexander that he thought lived in Utah". Don't know about that, but the new entry I made on the Misc. Page refers to an Alexander who was a Union Soldier and he lived in Emmett, Idaho. There may have been another Alexander that ended up in Utah. Stacy needs to check that out in a book that lists the names of soldiers that fought. I recently found one for the State of SC and found some Confederate soldiers I was researching in another family line.

Sam, I have been checking back through "Womack Genealogy" by Maxine Tinkham and on page 43 is something from a grandson of Alexander and Phoebe, Henry Clyde Kelly. "when the Womacks came out West, they came to Kelton, UTAH by train. They shipped their stuff to Kelton from Missouri. They got wagons in Kelton and came to Boise and finally Emmettsville." I have a question for you regarding Alexander. An obit for him states he has two sons, RAYMOND AND JAKIE, Raven Den, Arkansas. Do you have anything in your database on them? Thanks.

Daniel Ray Womack

Okay, here is all I know about the Womack descendants. It only goes back to my Grandparents, and after that, I'm really unsure. My father is Steven Ray Womack born in North Highlands, CA on March 18, 1952 to his Mother, Wanda Womack, and his father, Daniel Otto Womack. Daniel Otto Womack was born, I believe, on August 1st and I'm not sure the year. I believe it could be 1921. He was 69 when he died on December 1st, 1993. I don't remember his mother's name but I know she died in October of 1992. He was born on a Hopi reservation in AZ. and his father's name was also Daniel Otto Womack. Like I said, it's very unclear. Oh, my father had a brother and two sisters. He was the oldest, and the other siblings was a brother, Edward, and two sisters, Gay and Mona. Gay married Marvin Page, and Mona Married Steven Moses. Edward is married to a woman named DeVone, abut I'm unsure of her maiden name. I have a sister, Steohanie Lynn Womack born April 9th, 1982 in San Francisco, CA. I was born June 17th, 1978 in Long Beach, CA. That's all I know, and if someone knows where I can turn, please let me know.

[posted by webmaster] I am very new to this web site. I'm also especially new to this geneology but from what I have taken from Cherry Grove written by Egbert Hudson Womack, William (2) of Cumberland was son of William (1) of Goochland and my 6th great grandfather. Chapter 1V gives a little bit of detail about him. A Charles Womack is also mentioned, and he had a son named Charles. A Nathan Womack, also mentioned, had a son named Charles. When you mentioned Sandy Creek, I am curious--Sandy Creek in Ky. where my line (Tignal---one of William's sons) came to live. Tignal bought his own land in Ky. but my great or great grandfather (Tignal's grandson) bought land from a bachelor Charles (who came from Virginia) in 1820. My husband and I live in Virginia and are touring around Prince Edward County this weekend where William (3), son of William (2) lived. Do you know of any Womacks left there, cemeteries to visit, etc.? Thanks---Susan

I am trying to prove the parents of J. H. WAMMACK, who was b. c1830 in NC. He is in Hardeman Co., Tenn by 1870. The 1870 census listed, wife: Mary and children: M.D., b.1862; S.A., b.1864; H., b.1865; I.E., b.1867; and K.E., b. 1869. I think J.H. married Mary E. Crenshaw in 1858 in Tippah Co., MS. Is J.H. the son of Jordan & Elizabeth LANE Womack of Halifax Co. NC.? In 1850 they have a son "Henry, b.c1829".

I made this policy change some time ago, but didn't announce it. There has been only one rule for getting listed in the WGN Researcher Index: You must be doing some kind of Womack family research. Well, I added a second rule: You have to list the areas you are researching. A county/state list is ideal so that other researchers can find you with precision, but at least a state list is required. It just doesn't make much sense to be listed without an idea of where your ancestors lived. This addition does not affect the majority of researchers listed as most everyone has a location list. The few that don't will be contacted by me so that I can update or remove their listing. FYI, -Mark
