about a year with a family of Womacks in SW Missouri. I had the book on interlibrary loan about 25 years ago or so, but cannot remember the name...hopefully one of you may have ran across it..if I had the name

About the LDS and IGI/AF. For any entry you can find the submitter. I have done this and followed up by contacting them many times, sometimes with considerable success and sometimes with none. What is the mystery?

David,
We are aware one can at times, but not all, find the submitter on the
web page the LDS has. However, the question was, and still is: Can only
LDS send in updates/info to the IGI, etc? Or, can anyone?
Does sending in mean those people are sealed?? etc?? Just good to know info
so we understand our LDS friends and neighbors a little better.

William WOMACK and Anna GOODSON according to some sources. I am looking for

Sam and others. Some confusion. I have never visited the LDS website. I have been talking about the CD versions of the IGI and AF that one can access at LDS Family History Centers, many genealogical libraries (DAR,NGS) and some public libraries with genealogical sections. On the CDs I believe one always can access the submitters and interested researchers. I went to my local LDS FHC tonight and the lady who runs it confirmed what I thought: anyone can submit information, not just LDS members. If the records show "baptized" or "sealed to parents", etc., that means that some LDS member will have submitted information for that person; but other persons also may have submitted.

Has anyone every made the connection on Thomas Womack b.1743 married Louvisa
Rice with William Womack the immigrant? Thomas & Louvisa were my ggggg grandparents, but my history stops there...can anyone take me back farther?
Sam, from reading the messages you posted, there's some problem with the identity of Thomas's parents? Your from this same line?

Thanks for any help.

Not direct line of Thomas and Louvisa; but, know they fit into the line
somewhere.. point in fact..many of their descendants were in, some still are, Jackson Co AL..they moved westward to around Florence AL in the early to mid 1880's...Now, in 1881, my G-GF was in Jackson Co for some reason..met and married a gal from there, moved west to Florence AL area during this same
time and that is where me GF and his sis were born...I would say the rate of probability that my GF knew he was related to these Womacks was quite high.
I have nothing concrete to substantiate this; but, it shuah looks good!! I
have seen two lines back to William..both look good, but nothing but
conjecture and perhaps an overworked imagination of someone at this time..in
other words not even a smidgen anyone could hold on as the truth..
I think as more people reveal theah lines, we will be able to piece slowly a
little more of this giant puzzle together--if it is any consolation, it took
me over 22 yeahs to verify me 4th great. So don't don't give up the ship! and
to answer that unasked question of yours; why do I have Thomas et al when
he's is not a direct line?? He is a Womack and that is what we are looking
for.
Besides I like an enigma!!

Hi Everyone!
I am trying to replace alot of the information I had on my computer before I was bitten by the Chernobyl virus. It completely deleted my hard drive taking with it most of the information(which was very little) I had on my Womack line. I can't remember which one of you, Mark or Roger maybe, that sent me some information on a John Womack that was the son of Andrew Womack, Jr. from MS. Could you please send it again? I promise to print it off this time and not just store it in a file folder on my computer! *grin*
I'm still trying to track down my Womack's. The only thing I know for sure is that John and Rhoda Womack were in Nashville, AR in 1903 when my grandfather was born. Everything else I have is just guessing. Would appreciate any help anyone can give. Here is a run down on my Womack's once more:
John Womack and Rhoda Gertrude Asque Black
children:
Andrew Womack
Thomas Womack
Joseph Womack
Berton Womack
Levi Womack
Leonard Womack
William Womack
Anna Prather
Sally Jester
Finnett Cook
Fanny Batton
George Womack????

I know I'm missing one of them but can't think of them off the top of my head!
Again, if anyone has any information on these Womacks I sure would love to see it. Thanks again,

Just remember the name of the other child:

That makes 13 children!
One thing I do know is my Womack's had lots of children. My grandfather was the youngest of 13 children and my mother is the oldest of 9 children!
Thanks again for any help anyone can give!

I was also wiped out by the April 26 Chernobyl virus - It got my hard drive AND motherboard. I was very stupid and did not back up my huge genealogy databases because it was so much trouble to use so many floppies, and my old tape system would not hold enough either. I am paying for it now.

To anyone I have shared information with, would you please share again? I would appreciate copies of what I gave you as well as your information. Obviously, I have nothing to share with you at this time, but maybe in the future? I am trying to figure out how to start over. My line goes back to William Womack (b. abt 1802 N.C.) who married 1824 Moore co., N.C. to Elizabeth Sheppard ((b. abt 1803 N.C.) He died after the 1860 Coosa co., Ala census.

My father is James Carson Womack and he was born 12/6/18 in Beebe, Arkansas. His father was "Kit" Carson Womack, otherwise known as "Pa Kit." His kids (all born in the Arkansas area and residing all their lives in Searcy, Beebe, Cabot, Little Rock and Heber Springs areas) were: John Womack (died in Cabot, Ar in late '70s, early '80s), Nan Womack Goode (died in little Rock - I believe- in the late '80s, early '90s), J. C. (my father, living in Madisonville, KY), Middy ? (?), Carlton "Pete" Womack ( retired mortician living in Searcy, Arkansas) and Bill Womack (retired minister living in Heber Springs, Arkanasas).
If any of this information fits with anyone elses' history and they can shed some light for me on who Pa Kit was and where we come from, I'd appreciate it. Thanks

Just thought I would take a shot in the dark here and see if any of the Womack researchers here are connected to the Womack's that live in Ashdown, AR???
My Mom had Uncles and Aunts that lived in this area and cousins that still do.
Her father's name was Berton Lee Womack and her mother was Lnez Ethel Suggs.
If any of you out there are related to this Womack line would you please drop me a line at: hillj@brightok.net

The information at this site is wonderful.
Many seem to have questions regarding how to obtain submitter information from LDS genealogy records.The most successful way to accomplish this is to visit your local LDS Family History Center. The IGI is not the only searchable record that is available. Memebers and non-memebers of the LDS church can submit information to the ANCESTRAL FILE.
This information will not be automatically submitted for LDS ordinances. Information is available on submitters. Information that has been submitted to the IGI records have met stringent provability standards. Information on the Ancestral File CDs is not checked for accuracy but is very helpful and can connect you to someone else also searching for family lines.
We are direct decendants of THE Womack line that all of us seem to be related through. I find that any information is helpful when piecing together your family puzzle. I find it distasteful that fellow family genealogists would critisize anyone willing to provide so much free information, especially the Mormons. Happy hunting to all.

Someone a while back was looking for african-american Womacks. I was just messing around with the LOC's memory site memory.loc.gov and up popped up a few interesting things - there were two pamphlets listed as sermons given in about 1899 by an M.F. Womack in Lexington and Nashville. They had no biographical information on this particular M.F. Womack, so if he's yours, give the collection director a yell.

BTW, they also have pending some photos of my Womack family's houses that were still standing in the 1930s in Butler Co. AL Could be a really cool site as it grows. Also, a Senate entry for 1814 of Jesse Womack getting nominated for his army post.....

Shoupster,
Yes I agree the LDS has done more to further genealogy than any other entity.
And in no way would I put them down for it.
BUT, I disagree that the info has met stringent probability checks...I have seen correct info changed because another researcher thought it should be otherwise..rather than it being added as another possibility..
And, remember they have symbols on the fiche that show that a relative
changed something...whether right or wrong; and, they know not which only
that someone submitted it...the IGI is a good tool for a starter; but not as
a source document.

My gggg-grandfather was William Denton Womack s/o Thomas and Louvisa. At the time of my grandfather's (Keith Thomas Wilmeth s/o Sally Naomi Womack) death we found among his posessions the bible of Wiliam Denton Womack. At that time my mother thoght it best that the bible be given to our oldest living male relative. Unfortunately I never saw the bible and I am now waiting for copies of the family pages. I hope to be able to contribute to the mystery of Thomas A.Womack's parentage. Keep your fingers crossed and I will post my findings as soon as they are available to me. I hope to be a productive memeber of the WGN and I would like to know if anybody out there has the William Denton Womack line traced to present day. Thanx Diane

Roger, Thank you for sending me the William Womack line. My William Denton is the father of Sally Naomi not the son of Thomas and Louvisa. However it will be interesting to see the family pages and records of my gg-grandfather. I will be able to add to my line from Sally Naomi to present. There was more than one child born to her and more childeren born to her siblings. Need to make a couple of phone calls to get full names and dates where possible. As soon as I have it all together I will email you with the updates. Thank you so much, you have no idea how much easier you have made this for me as I have started where a cousin in generation before me. Diane

And of course theres nothing on Andrew Womack, Jr.'s children! LOL
I have a feeling this is him though cause my John Franklin Womack named his sons
Andrew, Thomas and Leonard which is the names Andrew, Jr. gave his sons. This is the only other time I've seen the name Leonard Womack as its not a real common name. This leads me to believe that I'm on the right track. Now if I can just figure out how to nail this bunch down in MS!
Thanks again for the help at least now I have somewhere else to look!

Pocahontas the Indian princess, was the daughter of Powhatan, chief of the Algonquian Indians in the Tidewater region of Virginia, which is where many of our Womack ancestors were born and died. She was born around 1595 to one of Powhatan's many wives. They named her Matoaka, she is better known as Pocahontas, which means "Little Wanton," playful, frolicsome little girl. She fell in love with the Englishman John Rolfe and wanted to marry him. Powhatan
gave his consent. John Rolfe was a very religious man who agonized weeks over the decision to marry a heathen Indian. He finally decided to marry Pocahontas after she had been converted to Christianity. Pocahontas was baptized, christened Rebecca, and later married John Rolfe on April 5, 1614.

Sir Thomas Dale made an important voyage back to London in the spring of 1616. His purpose was to seek further financial support for the Virginia Company and he brought with him about a dozen Algonquian Indians, including Pocahontas. Her husband and their young son, Thomas.

After spending many months in England Rolfe decided to return his family to Virginia, In March 1617 they set sail. Pocahontas was deathly ill from pneumonia or possibly tuberculosis and her husband knew she would not survive the voyage home. She was taken ashore, and, as she lay dying, she comforted her husband, saying, "all must die. 'Tis enough that the child liveth." She was buried in a churchyard in Gravesend, England. She was 22 years old.

If our Womack ancestor was William which we are having a problem proving he ever existed. Or lets say a Richard for arguments sake and we know the first child was Abraham ca. 1644our proginator would have been born (guessing) between 1610-1625 and would have reached maturity well after Pocahontas died. The only relationship I could figure between the Womack's and Pocahontas would seem to be with Pocahontas' son Thomas, if there is a
connection. As far as president Taylor I have heard that one before but no proof of any kind.

Hi Brenda,
The Jolly's were Cherokee Indians. You might want to try checking some native american sites for information. I have a cousin that has a good site with lots of links for checking your native american heritage. Check out:

Barbara Benge has a lot of links on this page that will help you trace a native american line. Give her a try.

Pocahontas had one son, Thomas Rolfe. If I am recalling correctly, he had one kid, who had about 12 kids, who had a whole bunch of kids. At which point they start marrying into some of the most prominent families in Virginia. There is a recently published update of the descendants of Pocahontas, which should be available through big genealogy libraries. The families of old Virginia are so interconnected that anything is possible once you get down a couple of generations - in fact, if I am recalling correctly, there was said to be in Virginia law the "Pocohontas exception" wherein the one drop of blood rule for determining race was exempted for descendants of Pocohontas....although that might be just a story at this point.

As for Zachary Taylor, no idea. The Womacks are peripherally connected to Andrew Jackson, in that his wife, Rachel, was first married to a Womack descendant. Unfortunately, the divorce apparently wasn't quite final when she married Jackson, creating a wee bit of a problem there....

Hi. I just found the WGN. The Womacks that I come from are from Corpus Christi, Texas. In my last visit to the cemetary, I wrote down the following information. My grandfather was John William Womack born 8/15/1882 and died 6/28/1948. He married Ollie McFarland (b: 12/29/1884 d: 6/9/83) and they had several daughters. Billie Nell Womack (b: 6/13/16 d: 12/15/23); Helen Womack Segrest (b: 2/21/14 d: 6/28/64); Madelyn Womack (b: 3/13/10 d: 12/8/91); Bobby Womack Reagan (b: 12/18/12); Jean Lorraine Womack Crowley Beard (b: 10/10/20); Frances Rae Gorham Womack (b: 2/6/24). Others at the cemetary are: Homer White Womack (b: 12/1/1976 d: 3/28/41); Ellen Elizabeth Womack (b: 11/21/1876 d: 5/27/58); Homer E. Womack, Capt. U.S. Army, WWI and II (b: 1/19/1898 d: 1/3/67); Raymond Douglas (b: 2/13/29 d: 4/27/32). I don't know if Raymond Douglas was the son of my grandparents or of Homer White Womack. If anyone has any information on this branch, I would be very grateful. No one really talks about any of this anymore in my family. My brother told me that John William Womack owned a dairy in CC, Tx named the Womack Dairy and if anyone knows about that I would like to hear from them. Thanks for this information and if I have helped anyone, I just feel great about it.

After the last responce I received an e-mail from another researcher asking where I got the middle name Mansel for Richard son of David, This has always been confusing to me also. Afterwords I did find a note stating his son Richard Jr.'s middle name was Mansel and this is in a family bible floating around Magee,MS., unfortunately I have lost or can't find the rest of the info, so If someone out there has this information please post it.

I'll try to keep this as short as possible. Two of my 3rd g grandmothers are Wommacks. Nancy, b 07/10/1784 in Halifax, VA, d 11/04/1851 in New Hope, Lincoln, MO, m William Watts, and Jane Wommack, b 12/21/1800 in Sumner Co., TN, d 03/27/1848 in St. Louis, MO, , Brice W. Hammack Recent information shows that Nancy was the daughter of Richard Wommack and Catherine ?, who moved to TN shortly after her brother Richard was born in 1804, where the elder Richard died two years later. I always wondered about the connection between Nancy and Jane, and recently found a deed book which reads "Catherine Warmack (sic), wife of Richard Warmack deceased, Brice Hammack and wife Jenney, Enock Goodman and wife Polly, and Richard Warmack, the heirs of Richard Warmack, to William Warmack 50 acres. 3 October, 1823" I am assuming from that this information that Nancy and Jane (Jenny) are possibly sisters. Does anyone have any information on the parents of Richard Wommack, or any of the Wommack family in Lincoln Co., MO? Please e-mail me if you do. Thanks for your help

My father is James E. Womack, Jr. and lives in Lascassas, TN. He has one sister, Wanda. Their father was James E.(for Eldridge)Womack. He was married to Valley P. (not sure of maiden name). I know they've lived in and around the Nashville area for as long as I can remember.

The only thing I know beyond that is my grandfather (James Sr) was the only son of an only son and his father passed away when he was quite young. I believe he was originally from Arkansas, but am not 100% positive on this. My father told me that he has been to family reunions in Arkansas.

I've always been curious about the Womack side of our family, but run into a brick wall whenever I try the Womack side due to the fact that no one can remember my grandfather's father's name or any other information that can help me go beyond that generation. If anyone has any information that can help me, I would really appreciate it.

P.S. This site is awesome!

WOMACK, W. P. Marriage
Wife: Pocahontas WILBORN
Marriage Date: 24 Dec 1899 Recorded in Tate, Mississippi

Do not believe this to be the Pochahontas in question, but Womack's are related nevertheless. Actually I'm wondering if anyone knows who this is? Found it on North America Vital Records Index.

I posted a message earlier regarding my grandfather, James E. Womack. I stated that my father has said he has attended family reunions in Arkansas. I was mistaken - the family reunions he spoke of were in Alabama.

I finally found (I think) that book where Jesse James reputedly lived with a family of Womack's in MO. I ordered it from Amazon today...well, if it isnt
the same one, should make for interesting reading anyway! Name of book in
case any y'all might run across= "Jesse James was My Neighbor." Should be
heah in 3-7 days per the hype.
