Which Alexander with daughter, Anne, are you referring to. Dates?

Roger Womack

I believe they are referring to Alexander son of Richard Jr. I am also intrigued by that line as my ggggrandfather William born abt., 1765 sp Catherine named one of their children Larkin (my gggrandfather) all from Campbell Co., VA., as did the descendants of Adam Daniel Driskoll, (Larkin Driscoll) the reason for the Adam Daniel is I have seen it both ways and I'm not sure if it's Adam, Daniel or both or some incorrect info has been passed along. Larkin was not a common name with the Womacks and I have always wondered if there was some connection with these families. I have never been able to prove who my Williams father was. Carlos list him as the son of Francis son of Thomas and Mary Farley, but no supporting documents, source or proof. As far as the parents of Adam Daniel Driskoll I have not researched that line and do not know who his parents were.

Tuesday, June 01, 1999 at 20:35:38 (PDT)

Roger, Carolyn, et al
The Anne referred to is the Daughter of Alexander Sr, son of the Richard you mentioned - she was b. abt 1745 is all I have and I only have her married to an
Adam Driscoll, no Daniel mentioned..she was the sis of me 5th granpa, Alex Jr.

I am a Womack through my father's mother. She was the daughter ofRev. William M. Womack. He fought with Gen. Lee and was at Appomattox at the surrender. After that he spent 75 years as a circuit riding Methodist minister in Polk County, N. C. I have his picture with his wife Jane Philbeck. Grandmother always told me that she was a descendent of Sir james Womack, the Earl of Edinburgh. He had 3 sons. He wa beheaded and the family fled to Holland or England, but i believe Holloand , then here. One of his grandsons was named Abner. I think his son was John, then Gazaway, then my grandmother's father. I would like to find out more about this.

HELP! Jefferson Lilburn Womack b. KY 29 JUN 1814 married to Mary b. IL raised children: Mancy b. 1845 IL; Margaret b. 1843 IL; James b. 1846 IL; Edwin b. 1853 IL and Mary b. 1848 IL, who died in childhood. Jefferson's daughter Margaret married Benjamin McConnell in IL. Their daughter Lucy married Jacob Warren (IL) His daughter Lucy Beatrice, who married Loren Decker, was my grandmother. I need to find out who Jefferson's father was and where in KY he was born/raised. Knowing his wife's maiden name would be nice. This Womack family of ours is absolutely amazing when it comes to genealogy. I think that if I can get Grandpa Jeff's dad's name, I can probably work it out from there. Thanks for reading this. DND

Roger Womack

David, I have Jefferson Lilburn as the son of James Womack and Elizabeth (Mary) Berry s/o Abner and Agnes Reed. The problem I am having with this line is James also had a son named Lewis and and it looks like the names of the the children attached are the same. So I'm not sure if Lewis may have been James Lewis. Possibly James and Lewis being the same person. Lewis's spouse is listed as Margaret Berry. James sp Elizabeth (Mary) Berry. I'm just not sure if these are one in the same person or two different individuals that someone has misplaced the children. I would be interested in what other researchers have on this?

I am trying to find information on David Womack who settled in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana around 1785.

Thursday, June 10, 1999 at 19:01:59 (PDT)

OK, Now calling all Thomas and Louvisa descendants..If you have info that you think might update the file on this mysterious couple (at least their past),
need that info to do that update. I realize many dupes may be sent. It will be
my problem to filter out and correlate the info into a workable product.

Upon completion of the update, only those who actively contribute will be sent the URL where the final product is; as I will keep a record of who sent (and will give credit to those who do..).
Anyone willing to scan and send jpg or gif photos of descendants, will include photo page(s), cross referenced from the narrative...the older the better..

Ladies and gents, I have over 300 hours work on the original book; of which I received permission from Oscar's estate to do. However, I am hoping an update or revised work will be the culmination of the efforts of many for all; not a few for the many. This was the wish of those who finished Oscar's work after his death.

Roger and Jack you have been sent separate mail because of your prior willingness to share your info. Thanks.

Thursday, June 10, 1999 at 21:50:54 (PDT)

Ok Mark, delete this if you will, but only after letting all have a good look at it, OK??
I was on AOL tonite in a chat, and one person kept giving all that he/she had done and so on..I got a lil po'ed..I actually called them a liar..that person, or her/his sometin ancestah was Thomas and Louvisa..I gave them the info from those twins Newton and Jasper, I think, and nevah heard back..then found on AOL on one othah occasion braggin on what he/she had found..I reminded him/her of the fact (dang wish I had the orig E mails) of who sent that info..I agin reminded tonite and was met with this, I approached you and you didnt do this and I needed you and this and that, sentiments for the birds!!
That person professes to be a WOMACK descendant or a spouse was/is..Womacks dont do that..now as far as I am concerned, TBogle@aol.com is persona non grata and I will not answer any Email, IM nor anything to or for that person.
Nor, will I knowingly correspond with anyone who does.
And yes, I did publicly call the person a liar, and will do so again and continue to do as long as he/she does not acknowledge where the info came from.
Any of you who choose to do so, do so at your own volition and own risk..
Now, Yes I have been outspoken, and will continue to be so..I will share, but danged if I will myself or others that have freely given of themselves and info
to be pushed aside and some idiot completely ignore where they got assistance from!!
Noww censor me if you will and so be it!!

I happened to notice an updated database at Ancestry.com the WWI draft
registrations - ran Womack through, and got 90 hits. It appears that
they've covered Mississippi, Idaho, Nevada and Texas (happened to notice both
William Wallace and William Lafayette Womack there in Dawson Co. TX) so if
you are hunting up someone who was alive in 1917 in those states,
check it out while it's still available for free in the next few days.

Any information regarding Lester, who was married to a woman named Elfie,
would be appreciated. Hermann Miskelly

Roger Womack

The Lester you are looking for may be the brother of the below Bryant H. Womack, this family was from Rutherfordton, NC. It may be a place to start. This information was extracted from The 'Womack Genealogy Newsletters" from the late 50's and early 60's. I'll e-mail you more on his family if you think he is the right one.

(Pfc. Womack was awarded this nation's highest military award, the Congressional Medal of Honor. An Army base street and a firing range in Korea bear his name. A street at Fort Sam Houston, Tex., has been named in his honor. And now, the Army's most modern hospital at Fort Bragg will stand as a monument to a Rutherford farm boy who paid the supreme sacrifice for his country.

Top Army officials, North Carolina Governor Luther Hodges, and other dignitaries will be present for the dedication. So will Mr. and Mrs. Womack, Bryant's sister, Rachel, and his brothers, Charles, Eugene and Lester. Lester, a Military police corporal in Germany is being flown home for the services.)

[posted by webmaster]

My name is Benjamin Cynova , I am doing research on my Ggreat-grandmothers
family . I've been reading your letters and have been comparing and think
that there is a possibility that there might be a connection.

In one part of the letter a woman by the name of Bates who subbmitted the
information on the Womack's from Wilson Co. TN.

Starting with Richard Womack Jr and Elizabeth Ann Puckett - then their son
Alexander Womack and Martha ? parents of Richard Womack, who married Rachel.

Richard and Rachel Womack's son Richard Womack Jr , married Elizabeth
Puckette Bailey. Their son Russell was the father of my Gggrandmother Nancy
Elizabeth Womack.

It said in the letter from Mrs. Bates that she had no info , 3810 Bedford, Nashville TN. I used and it didn't work.

If there is a way you can help me get in contact with anyone who is
interested in knowing information on the branch that moved from Wilson Co to
Texas. I am also interested in knowing any more on the ancestors of this

Thanks for your help

Reta DeShields Parton

I am stumped. Can anyone help me? Handy DeShields b. 1819 married Nancy Womack b. 1824 probably in Marion/Boone County, Arkansas about 1847. Nancy is said to be the daughter of David Womack who was on the census in Marion Co., in 1840. Nancy was born in Arkansas per the census records.

How was Julia A. Womack related to Nancy? Was she a niece? Julia A Womack married John Templeton Wood.

I don't have a lot of information on the Womacks, but I do have a lot on Boone and Marion County families. Please help me find out more about Nancy.

Note: A story was told about Nancy and has been passed down through the years. Nancy was so thankful to her brothers or neighbors she wanted to name her son after them. Not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings, she named them all after them. His name was Abraham Camel Robert Richard Alexander John
Wesley Ramsie Paulsey DeShields. If anyone could help I would appreciate it.

My grandfather was Robert Kendrick Womack b. 25 Oct 1903 in North Georgia;
and died Oct 1974 in Shreveport, Louisiana. His first wife was Grace Lawhon
and his second wife was Virgina "Ginger" DuPuy. He was a Doctor (Urologist)
in Shreveport, and an avid horticulturist, specializing in Camillias.

He also had a sister, Annie Virgil Womack, b. 7 Sep 1895 in North Georgia;
and died 1980 in Athens, Georgia. She never married, and taught French at the
University in Athens. According to the Soc. Sec. Death Index, her death
benefit was sent to someplace in Dalton, Whitfield Co., GA.

My great aunt once remarked that they were the only Womacks that she knew of
in their hometown (unidentified) in GA. If anyone can connect me with any
other members of this family, I would very much appreciate it. My mother
also indicated that the family was likely of Choctaw descent, but she had no
idea how recent that was.

Would like to clue all in on something. Do not rely on the SSDI for where a death benefit is sent. Like the one below. It was impossible to send a death benefit for this lady. Since she died unmarried, there were no eligible beneficiaries. A death benefit IS NOT PAID to anyone but a surviving spouse or minor children; then only if the deceased was insured under SS. When a woman who never worked under SS dies; her husband, even if living, does not receive a death benefit. And, if she were and her husband were deceased, there would be none paid unles MINOR children or disabled adult children eligible for benefits on her account.

OK, if any of you try to access any of my pages you have in the past, and encounter a not there; that is true. I am temporarily removing ALL pages from the net until the controversy about who owns the data put out here, us or the web servers. It seems that when Yahoo took over Geocities they started a lil controversy about anything you put out there belongs to them unrevocablly and alla that legal stuff..they did not say anything about those of us who pay for web space; but if that is how they are going to treat customers they are gonna have a mass exodus...
I will do lookups from my info; but please try to give more than just a name. location, date or something to go along with it. I have the pages intact in a large file and can bring them up off-line in my browser as if on line..
Sorry if this causes any inconvenience, but you all know how much work we put into this stuff to let someone have it for free and have no sayso in the matter.
I will be looking for some store-bought web space with no restrictions..

Actually, I had wondered about the Death Benefit payment for my maiden Aunt
as well, until I realized that it was probably paid to a trust which I believe
she set up to take help take care of her niece (my mother) who was
disabled by a brain tumor. That same condition has made it nearly impossible
to get information from my mother on her family connections. I plan on sending
a request to the SSA anyway just to see what is on the original SA-5 form
about my great aunt's parents and birthplace, as well as that for my granddad.

I realize that the information I gave was sketchy at best, but I'm afraid it's
all that I could piece together from my childhood memories of them from nearly
20 years ago. I noted that my younger sister had asked a similar question
about my grandfather here in this group last year, and also that she had no
idea that he was from GA, but assumed that he was from LA where he died.
I also realize that there are a LOT of Womack families from North GA, but I
posted anyway on the off chance that some other researcher would recognize the
names, dates and general location. After I get the SSA information back, I'll
let you know what I found out about their parents and birthplace.
