Searching for more information on a Joseph B. Womack, born in Tenn. in July of 1840. Married a Maggie (born in Ala May 1845) and migrated to Texas.

Fathered John Drury Womack in 1873/74; who fathered Lester St. Albin in April of 1897 in Bullard Texas; fathered Lester (n) Womack Sept 1924 in Troup. Thanks for any info or help. Larry.
Hi all, Some interesting messages have appeared whilst I've been away in France. Some more English Womacks! Also my sister-in-law Pippa Womack tells me that yesterday a Jay Womack from Florida called by her FWomack's Central Fisheries" Fish & Chip shop in Normanton, West Yorkshire and took a snap or two. Normanton's hit the big time tourist trail! (Can only be as a result of the feature, surely)! Unfortunately she said the shop was heaving and so couldn't talk. Pity she didn't get where he was staying, as I could have called him. He gave her a card with an Elcotel e.mail address on, does anyone know who this might be? He announced himself as a relative. Pippa said he didn't have a particularly strong American accent. I have also had a request for the Womack Cantab Alumni entries (Cambridge University graduates) from 1500. Is any one else interested in this? Regards to all. Jan womack.

I am interested in WOMACKs of Halifax Co., VA and surrounding counties, including Goochland. My WALTERS/McBEE line came from Halifax before going to Surry Co., NC in the mid 1780s and then onto GA, so I believe this is also where my WOMACK/CAUTHON line came from. Here is what I know: Elijah WALTERS, son of Robert WALTERS and Susannah McBEE, was born on 10 Jun 1758 at VA. He married Judith Cauthon, daughter of Charles CAUTHON (CAWTHORNE, CATHEN, etc.) and Miss ? WOMACK, circa 1780. Elijah WALTERS died in 1829 in Franklin Co., GA. Judith CAUTHON, daughter of Charles CAUTHON and Miss ? WOMACK was born on 2 Jun 1762 in [Halifax Co.,] VA. She died in 1846 in Franklin Co., GA. Seeking any information.
I'm looking for any Womacks who may have had descendents who settled in St. David, Arizona. My great grandfather David Robert Womack (spouce Refugia Escalante) had three children; Alexander Roosevelt Womack (spouce Juanita Mandriquez), Beatrice Womack (spouce Mr. Bentley), and Mary Womack. Alexander Roosevelt Womack was killed in 1941 a mine explosion (gun powder mine), St. David, Arizona. Alexander Roosevelt Womack and Juanita Mandriquez lived also in Tombstone, Arizona. They had three children, Rebecca Womack, Alexander Robert Womack (born 5/17/38, Benson, Arizona), and Mary Ellen Womack. Alexander Robert Womack married Henrietta Felix 5/23/59 in Tucson, Arizona. They currently live in Tucson, Arizona. They had three children Nina Marie Womack (3/25/60), Alexander Raymond Womack (5/19/62), Ernie Martin (1/29/66) and David Robert Womack (9/5/70).
Richard III (1710-1785) and his family in Georgia. I've just finished some research in GA Land Records - Colonial Records of Georgia by Camden, and Georgia Headrights by GA Surveyor General. While I expect most or all of you serious researchers will already have this information, I thought I would post some of it for general interest. According to Richard III's petitions for grants, he was in Georgia as early as June 1765. He seems to have acquired 700 acres at the junction of Rocky Comfort and Duhart Creeks, about 4.5 miles from the present day town of Louisville in Jefferson County. His son Jesse's petitions say he was there as early as October 1765, but he did not ask for land until 1769 (possibly when he came of age?). His son John was there by 1766 and as late as 1771. I assume these are Richard's sons as they request land next to Richard. Richard said he had 3 kids with him in 1766, 5 in 1768, and 4 in 1769. (Who might they be, besides probably John and Jesse until they asked for their own land?) Richard III's son Abraham and what I presume to be his sons Jesse, William and David are in the Headright records from 1786-98 (one knows Abraham was there before that) in Washington, Wilkes, Burke and Greene Cos. often on the Ogeechee river, i.e. an area the center of which would be Hancock Co. created in 1793. One thing I found very interesting was the presence of John from at least 1766-71. I know I have seen somewhere a suggestion that the John who married Lucy Pryor Tapley and died in Person Co. NC in 1825 was not the son of Richard III as usually recorded. But maybe he went back to NC?
Interesting information that! A further tidbit - Abraham was in Granville Co., NC in 1763 when he married, but was in GA by 1776 when he shows up on some Rev. war records.
I have a marriage license for Thomas Jefferson and Mary Womack dated Dec 22, 1814 in Jones County, Gerogia. I had believed her to be the daughter of Mansel and Sarah Rogers Womack. I see on the page by Keith Elliott - Some descendants of Wiliam Womack and Many Jane Allen - he has Mansel's daughter Mary as married to a Charles Paul and Jim Grey. This confuses me. Does anyone have Mansel's family and can clarify this for me?
Welcome to the new WGN Message Page! You may notice a few changes. First, the message page is on longer located on the old AOL site. I finally got my own CGI up and running and switched the entire page and archive over to the main Earthlink site. The only things left on the AOL site are the vital record message boards, and I will be moving them over before the end of the year. Second, the messages are now listed in reverse chronological order, with the most recent message diaplayed on top. This was the most requested feature change for the message page. But if it confuses people too much, I can change it back. Third, the October 1998 messages have been moved to the archive. You can use the above link to access them. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to email me. Enjoy, -Mark
To all me cuz and othahs heah on WGN, a Merry Christmas and your card awaits you at the above URL...
Just another opportunity for personal growth. If it's easiier for some this way, it will work for me. I always copy and paste the messages to my file at home, to go over them, now if there is more than one message they will not be in chronological order, what a crisis ! Just kidding, I hope everyone has a very happy Holiday Season.

Received an email from Karen concerning the family of William Womack sp Ruth Adams. I do have some information for her on this family, however the email address Marie4361 does not work.
Sam: Thanks for the beautiful christmas card including the left handed banjo playing frog. The baby in the manger speaks to us all. Thanks also for giving me the web site for Womack GN months back. I have met several Womack cousins but still need info on marriage of my grand parents: Lemuel Aledxander Womack & Nancy Elizabeth Reed. Where and when were they married, Ark., Mo., Ill or some where else.1906-1909 time frame.
Hi Womack researchers...Just wanted to let you all know that I posted some Womack obits on the Vital records page of WGN this morning. Have lots more to post as soon as I find the time!!
A Happy Holidays to you all! Just a note to point out that just because someone was declared a headright in a particular deed doesn't mean that they came over recently. I've seen several where someone came over 20 years before, but wasn't claimed as a headright until the person got his act together, and got enough headrights to claim enough land, or found the land he wanted..... On that note - I'm still trying to unravel the Rogers/Womack connections in GA. So, if anyone has some input, give me a yell. Right now I'm trying to sort out whether John Rogers who d. 1808 in Hancock Co. was the father of Ann "Nancy" the wife of Sherwood Womack. But, heck, any clarification of any of the dozens of Rogers/Womacks would be gratefully received! Ann
[posted by webmaster: I know there is a large McMinn Co contingent out there, so I thought I would post this right away. -Mark] My GGGF is Watt Womack from McMinn County, Tn. My GGF is William F. Womack, my GF is Rice H. Womack of Cleveland, Tn. my Father is Jesse Ronald Womack of Easley, SC and that's about all I know. I just happened across WGN and I think it's GREAT. Over the years I've thought about tracing my family tree but never did, but would love to hear from someone in McMinn County, Tn area. -Ron Womack
I would like to find out more about my line of the Womacks. My dad Rob Leonidus Womack was born Nov 20, 1900 and passed on Jun9,1984. He had 3 brothers and 2 sisters ( Carol, Walter,Paul and Kate,Ruth) Aunt Ruth is the only one still with us. If any one has reasearched this line it would save me lots of time. Thanks, Rob.
Thanks to Miles K. Womack for the letter from J. T. Womack of Fack(er) AL. J. T. Womack is John Tipton Womack born 1829 or 1830 in Jackson County AL. He was my great-great grandfather. I have a shotgun that was his and was passed down through the family. I also have a similiar letter he wrote.
I am interested in hearing from anyone that might have any knowledge of Sarah Womack Coday/Cody who was married to James Coday/Cody and buried in Warren County, Georgia in 1795. Specifically I would like to know the names of their children and who those children married. My family tree information differs from a Cody "cousin" and I would like to correct my information if it is indeed incorrect.
I'm looking for information on my Womack lineage dating back from John William Womack, born around 1870 in, I believe, Paulding County, Georgia. He was a Baptist minister and is buried at Mt. Olivet Church in Dallas, Georgia. His father was a George Womack Jr., born either in Georgia or Alabama. I have few details on George Jr., except that he possibly lived in Sand Mountain, Ala., before possibly relocating to Georgia. I'm seeking information on the family line dating back from George Jr. Any help is appreciated.
I am searching for info on Robert J. WOMACK, born Sept 25, 1881 in place unknown. Robert married abt 1900 to Etta SKAGGS, born Feb 6, 1882. They had at least two children; Opal May, born May 31, 1907 in Fredericktown, MO, and Cecil C., who married Lola F. Cecil and Lola may still be alive, as no info is given on them on World Family Tree cd vol. 15. Opal May, my cousin's mother, died Jan 5, 1979 in Festus, Jefferson Co., MO. She married Lilburn Joseph Williams. My cousin, Stan Williams, has passed away, and I would very much like to trace Stan's Womack heritage for his children. This is my first visit to the Womack Network, and I am very impressed with your caring attitudes and giving spirits. It makes me wish I were a Womack!
Brenda, You may also like to know that the Womack/Williams names have been connected for many years. For example; John Williams married Mary Womack bef 1732 somewhere in VA. Mary was the daughter of William and Mary Woodson Womack. William was the son of Abraham and Sarah ?Summerscales? Womack. Abrahma being the son of William and Mary J Allen Womack. What is rather coincidental here is that John's sister, Anne, was my 7th great grandmother in another line of mine, Williams/Daniel. There are others here that have the Womack/Williams line. Send what you have me via E mail (on Williams); and I will check against my Williams data base. Perhaps we can connect the Womack's you seek through that way.
I am seeking information on Sarah Womack (b. 1804, died before April 1864) who married James Elder. They married August 26, 1826 in Roane County, TN. I think Sarah's father's name was Jacob Womack.
[posted by webmaster; I got this some time back...] Well....I was absolutely FLABBERGASTED at finding a Womack Site, of all things!!! Where I grew up, there were a few of us Womack's around, but none seemed to be related to us (at least not closely enough to know about). We were very brunette in our family, but one family I went to school with were all blondes, and a couple of the other families we met were brunette to black haired, but still not related (again, as far as we knew). I'm out here in Texas, but my Womack family were (are) from the Cherokee County area of Alabama (around the Centre area--it's a city). After finding your site today, I called my father and asked him his grandfather's name. We do know that my father is Norman Hubert Womack, born Oct. 27, 1922, in Cherokee Co., AL. His sister was born Mildred Womack (married Horace Day). His mother was Nora Morrison. His father was John Burton Womack, born around the turn of the century, presumably in Cherokee Co., AL. John Burton's father was John Simpson Womack (I think he's buried in Cherokee Co., AL, also), and I don't know anything much about him. Think he was a Methodist minister, but not sure... This "Womack surname" line is going to die out with my brother, and I would love to show my father how geneaologists count the daughters and their lineages, too, in things. My father is 76 years old and I know that knowing more about these things would bring much peace to him. How can I, living in Texas and unable to make trips to AL, find out anything about my Womack ancestry? Can you give me any tips in this? I sure would appreciate it...for my father, who happens to be one of the best men in this world. Does anyone you know have anything much on Cherokee Co., AL Womacks? Oh, and by the way, after reading about the descriptions of some of the other Womacks, I just had to describe our branch...my grandfather had a big nose (can't remember what color of eyes), medium stature with dark hair and bushy eyebrows. My father looks a lot like him having (in his youth) coal-black hair, bushy black eyebrows, medium nose, tho, and kindly features (I thought of him as a cross between Andy Griffith and Dean Martin, when I was a girl :-). A trait runs in our family to be born with brown eyes that turn green as we grow older (my father's are pure green, mine are mostly green-at age 40-and my son's 23 yr. old eyes started to turn a few years ago). And for some reason, I was born with extra long middle fingers that curve (my son and daughter inherited this). These characteristics could come from our Tucker lineage (which is exhaustingly extensive). Just thought I'd add 'em. I've rattled enough. Thank you so much for this site, and thanks for your time on this! Any help would be appreciate so much!
ATTENTION Richard Carroll Anderson: the email address you gave in your signup to join the WGN, akarlinsky@AOL, is invalid. Please send me your valid email, otherwise I cannot add you to the WGN listings. If anyone knows the correct email, please send it to me. -Mark
I've been doing genealogy research for several years now, but today marks Day One on searching for my husband's Womack connections and I have to say that this is the best site I have run across! The Womack info I have was given to my by my husband's grandmother. Her grandmother was Seraphina Womack (1866-1899) who was married to James Young. Seraphina and James moved to Fannin Co, TX from White Co. TN sometime after 1892. Grandma's info says that Seraphina was the daughter of James Knowles Womack and Sara Lodema Crain. James was the son of William P. Womack and Celia Knowles. William was the son of Anderson Womack and Francis Dobbins, and Anderson was the son of Thomas A. and Louvisa Rice Womack.I feel sure her info is accurate, but want to double check. Does anyone see any errors here? Any and all info would be appreciated!
Jean You are right about the father of Sarah who married James Elder. However, there are some of us who have her marriage to James on Aug 25, 1832, Rhea Co TN. I think Ray Womack (WomackRayB@aol.com) was the one who gave me the information. She is a sister to my GGG-GF Thomas Womack. I have Jacob's line back to William (affectionately called the Immmigrant). And I have Jacob's mother's line back to around 1450ish.
Hoping y'all having a very nice Christmas. I have found some WOMACK names from the White Co AR 1890 tax list. Tho not a census, the tax list is the only thing close to one for that county. Will be searching other AR counties to see if anyone has compiled any list also and then will post..the names can be found thru the AR page, Samsville--
Found some WOMACKs heah: http://www.galstar.com/~glpatter/d0019/g0000005.html#I14485
Sam, thanks. The last message "found some Womacks heah" tied in a family I've been looking for. Bruce Raymond Womack posted a message Dec 10, 1997 (a little over a year ago) looking for this family. I believe this is the same line as the recent message looking for Jesse Womack that married Rachel Boykin, sister of Mary Elizabeth Bowlin Boykin that married John Abner Womack, Jesse's brother. They were both the sons of Francis Marion Womack; son of Jesse Womack sp. Phebe; son of Richard Womack III sp Ann Childers; son of Richard, your ggggg. I believe this to be correct, let me know?
Looking for any info on Isham Womack who married Critty Patton on Mar. 27, 1824. They where from Prince George Co., VA.
Looking for the family of Mahala Boone Womack who married Moses Higgins in Decatur Co., Indiana 12/28/1837. Children include Harriet, Serelda, Elizabeth, Elmira, Volney, Alfred, William, Willis, and Oliver Perry. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you in advance. Ellery A. Bardos
Roger, Actually not my 5th great but me 7th. Richard, wife Ann, was brother to 6th.
Can anyone confirm the info I have on the Womack's? Would love to know if anyone else has anything the same/similiar. Thanks! Jamie 1.Charles A. Womack, b.c1575 2.William, b.1620 Wragby,Lincolnshire,Kent,England; d. c1679 Henrico Co.,VA; m.1640,Mary Jane Allen, b. 1620 England; d.bef.1685 3.Abraham, b.1645 Henrico Co.,VA;d.1733-35 Bristol Parish,H,VA; m. c1661 Bristol Parish, Henrico Co.,VA., Sarah Worsham, b.c1644 Henrico Co.VA; d/o John William Worsham & Elisabeth Littleberry 4.Thomas,b.c1664 Bristol Parish,H,VA; d.11/1732 Bristol Parish; m.Mary Farley, b. 1668 Henrico,VA; d.c1750 Chesterfield Co.,VA; d/o John & Mary Farley 5.Thomas,b.c1704 Henrico,VA;d.12/1780 Chesterfield Co.VA; m.Sarah Woodson,b.c1720 Henrico Va; d.Chesterfield Co.,VA 6.Sarah, b.c1738 Henrico Co.,VA; d.4/6/1780 Amelia, A, VA; m.Frederick & Elizabeth Reams
Jamie, Methinks the most of us are familiar with your line, tho some of us, meself included, may lack a last name of a spouse er tew; or a date mebbe or a place. However, would like someone to point out on Charles A where they found theconnection with Ole Bille the Immigrant..mostly people tended to continue a name in their line..but Charles has been used sparingly and not at all by Ole Bille if I remember..(now as long as someone dont bring that bishop back into play we be ok!)..
I have never seen any documentation or proof of any type that Charles Augustus Womack b 1575 England was the father of William the Immigrant. I know many folks have him atop their genealogy. The records at the Family History Centers do have him as the father of William, however someone has submitted that info just as people do with Family Tree Maker, usually with no source or proof. If anyone has any documention I would sure love to hear about it.
Rog, yeah..and realize a lot of what we have is hearsay..and probably will never be more than family tradition/legend or whatever. However, if Charles was the father of William, and was poss related to that bishop, it would stand to reason that somewhere in a church in England there is a baptismal or christening record on William..or may be anyway regardless..I guess I am gettin bit itchy on this as there is too much other documentation on other people that go back further than what is available on us..was all the WOMACK stuff lost/destroyed, etc?? Me thinks that WOMACKS, then as many are now, remember I said many and not all, were very private, closedmouth people. So, perhaps an orgnaized effort and concentration on one individual or area, as either Mark or Roger suggested some time ago, is needed..thoughts people?? suggested sometime ago, is
Everyone, a belated Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! Roger & Sam, I have found it curious that with so many people searching, that more hasn't been found about the possible connections of William The Immigrant. Maybe more has been found, but no one has felt like publishing it. Part of the problem, I'm sure, is proximity to the information. Since most of us don't live in England, it is a little harder to search their records. Jan Womack, are you out there reading this? Do you have any information of a Charles Augustus Womack? It would be a mighty big breakthrough if we could prove a connection across the pond. -Mark
Didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest with ole Charles A. but as was mentioned by others, it did come from the LDS. I have no proof it's true. Since I've only been at this for a few months I thought it was a good starting point and I just figured it was better to have a name than not then I could eliminate it if necessary. When and if I ever do find any evidence pointing in either direction I will most definately post it here. Thanks for responding & I really didn't mean to step on any toes, sorry! Jamie
Jamie, no hornets nest!! A much needed shot of adrenalin and a kick in some direction was all I intended..You done ok shugah, so dont worry!! Perhaps if Jan knows of any old churches in the Womack Water area, or in Yorkshire (I believe that was where many were from), might prove interesting. The IGI can be a starter for some things, but like Rog said, sometimes a well meaning researcher will make a change to correlate with his/her data that kinda makes someone else throw their hands up in dispair..Anyway, this has been a good year for WGN, Mark is to be congratulated, beat on back, etc for all his efforts..Roger for his always willingness to share information with us all, and the rest of you who help keep this worthy project going. Womacks all, cuzzins all.
I just discovered this page today! I also have a WOMACK ancestor and would be interested in hearing from others searching for like information. My fourth great grandmother was FANNIE WOMACK. She was born about 1780. I have differing information--some says she was born in Alabama or Tennessee, others say Hopkins, Texas. Her father was LARKIN WOMACK and she was a full-blood Cherokee Indian. She married ELIJAH DAVID WEAVER about 1800. He was born about 1775 (again, either in Tennessee or Hopkins, Texas). His father, ELIJAH W. WEAVER served in the Virginia Navy during the Revolutionary War. FANNIE and ELIJAH had six children: Matilda (my third great grandmother-she married JAMES QUINCEY CARRICO), Mary (Polly), David, Larkin, Nancy and Fannie. If you have any further information you would like to share, please do so! I have additional information including a photocopy of an old photo of FANNIE and MARY WEAVER (who married Aaron Hardin ALLARD). Thanks! Maretta
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! All WOmack relatives found, known, and still lost to me.. I hope you have a wonderful New Year! May you all find the connection you are looking for!
Happy New Year! 12:52a.m. my time, wanted to do this at midnight but was too busy reading notes on my genealogy! Thanks Roger for the info. Who's got the black-eyes ready? Good luck to everybody in the new year, maybe we'll all find what we're lookin for. Jamie-Texas
