looking for Jacob Womack 8/17/1820 probably in sullivan county, Tn. As young
man he lived in bluegrass region of Ky. where he married Sarah (?). They had 2 sons, 1 named John. In 1865 or 1866 he married Melissa Jane Althiser in IL. Their oldest son Alexander was born in 1868. In the early 1870's he settled in callaway county, Mo where he lived until his death on 10/24/1905.

I realize this isn't much to go on, but will appreciate any help.

FYI..A reunion is being planned for the above mentioned families on July 14, 15, 16th of 2000. We are combining 3 family reunions(all of which are related), and welcome any and all descendants. Plans are to visit local sites, cemeteries, McMinn Living Museum, Vann House, local genealogy libraries,and of course share family histories, photos,etc.. If you have any interest in attending this reunion, please contact me. We plan to send info to all who show an interest, outlining the details of the reunion. Also, if you can provide names and snail mail addresses of anyone not online that may wish to attend, we would be glad to send them an invitation.
I realize the reunion is quite a ways off, but we have to make reservations as soon as possible for the areas we plan to hold the reunion. So, we would like an idea of how many people may attend. BTW, I am a descendant of (James) Alexander Womack(1797-1874) & Freelove Thompson(1805-1877).I look forward to hearing from my Womack/Womac, Howell, Nicholson kin!!!!!

You have a most interesting and lively site. I had no idea there were so many people sharing this name. We have just become aware of a possible link with the Womack line; it appears that my gggg grandmother, Esther Tanner married a David Womack in Kentucky in 1809. Their daughter Ursula married a John D. Tanner, resided in Illinois, then moved in Iowa, where their eldest daughter Mary Jane married Joel Ives Ballard. My questions is, after surveying your sites, who were Thomas and Louvisa Rice Womack, (apparently David's parents) and why are their origins so mysterious? Thanks, too for the background information on the family; I am new at this and would have assumed that Womack was a German name rather than English. Would be happy to contribute any information you deem interesting. Thanks again.

Tuesday, October 05, 1999 at 05:27:44 (PDT)

Would like to know your source for your David being a child of Thomas
and Louvisa. If he is, he is a formerly unknown one....and by the way you
entered an incomplete E mail address or would have came to you privately on

Mary, Esther Tanner married David Womack in Rutherford Co., NC. 4 Oct. 1809.
I do not know who this David is.

You know I have always pushed for getting the info out--and I still do--for
instance, you may have some note in a miscellaneous file you consider not quite significant--but that tidbit may be a giant clue for on of the others..for instance, a somewhat obscure note in someone's files helped me confirm the father of my GGGG-GF even more that before..marriage bond of his brother specifically states son of.....

Longs shots at present, yes, but have posted queries on the Scottish, yes Scottish message boards, the Australian, the Czech Republic and that of Poland,
All places where the name has been linked or where it is (Australia for sure).

England we know, but for the information there, little is left unless in some obscure file as I mentioned.
Please open those files and let the info flow, remember your trash may be someone else's treasure (to cop a phrase!)..

Searching for family of James Knowles WOMACK and Sarah Lodema CRAIN. James b. 19 Jun 1827 White Co., Tn. Sarah b. 25 Jan 1846 Van Buren Co., TN.
Seraphina (Fina) b. 4 Feb 1867 White Co., TN and she married James YOUNG.

Any connection?

Rebecca Bandy

I have an indirect connection to the Womack line. I have the line of John and Margaret(Gaines)Pryor. Several Womack men were married to Pryor women. Mildred was married to David Womack abt. 1771. Lucy Pryor Tapley's 2nd. husband was John Womack. I also saw where someone said Dorothy Pryor was married to a Womack....however I do not have that info...she was married to a Henry McNeill in 1775. I would be very interested in anything regarding the Womack/Pryor
Connection. I would also like to know what Greta Garner meant in her comment about Mildred Pryor in her article about her father James Garner. It stated that " Mildred was one of the few individuals who's ancestry has been documented back to Bibical times. The Royal line of Kings and Queens". I would like to know where I could find this information. By knowing this..then I might be able to locate the parents of my 3rd great grandmother Lucy Pryor who married Adam Petree in 1812 in Surrey Co. NC. Her father has to be a brother to Mildred as far as I can tell. I would appreciate any help on this part of the Womack line.

Friday, October 08, 1999 at 05:27:12 (PDT)

Go here to get to the info you wanted that is related back to well, Adam
and Eve. However, I do not believe there is sufficient PAPER trail to justify
the lineage myself. It is, altho, not bad reading if you are interested in fiction with real life players. Myself, I would have to see the actual documents showing birth, baptismals, death, marriage, etc.

Roger Womack

Lisa, James Knowles Womack AKA James R. Knowles Womack sp Sarah Crain was the or at least I have him listed as the son of William P. Womack, son of Anderson Womack, son of Thomas Womack sp Louvisa Rice. He was first married to Sarah's sister Nancy, The reason Arron was in there with the 1854 birthdate was he was from the first marriage with Nancy. Give me a holler, I have more on their children.

Sam, I have been reading the site you suggested...whew! Lots to digest and like you, I prefer documentation. I'm still searching for my elusive Lucy Pryor
Petree, niece of Mildred Pryor and David Womack. I do know that I'm an ancestor
to John and Margaret(Gaines) Pryor...they being my Lucy's grandparents. My Lucy eventually went to Decatur Co.IN after 1812 with her husband Adam Petree. I noticed that a Thomas G. Petree married Annie Wamock in Washington AR 5-Oct-1879. I'm not sure of his parentage...but wondering if related to my Adam. If anyone has any thing to offer on my quest....I'm aways open to ideas ! Thanks

Linda Snow Davis

3 questions:

(1)Is there a seperate family between Warnock and Womack? I am trying to determine if this spelling "Warnock" is just picked up as a mispelling or if there was a seperate family. I have one particular document that has the Womack name spelled four different ways and Warnock is in it along with Womack.

(2) Does anyone have any information on Womacks from South Carolina in the mid to late 1700's to very early 1800's? Specifically the area of Pendleton District, 96th District, Barnwell, Orangeburg, Newberry, Beaufort, Aiken,or Edgefield. All off of the Savannah River.

(3) Anyone with ANY information on any Frederick Womacks. Mine was from Savannah, Effingham Co., Ga. 1791-1835, but I have indication prior to 1791 he was in S.C. during the Revolutionary War. I have NEVER seen any Fredericks in the Womack research other than a brief mention of one from N.C. Halifax Co., but I need connection. If anyon has anything PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any help would be appreciated. Please email me at LDSED@aol.com
Thank you

You all know, I am a very controversial person..one of me pet peeves is those who used to look cross-eyed at an Indian, now wants to be one..I think this is pathethic!!..If, in the natural course of events, you happen onto a relatioship, then by all means; be proud of it!! Just dont think till you are sure and can prove it!

Wendy Fogelstrom

My gggrandfather William W. Womack was born 4-19-1817 in Powelton, Hancock Co. GA. I have been unable to find any info about his parents or siblings. Its believed his father may have died around 1825 and he went to live with a Otis Smith who married Martha Womack, daughter of Sherwood Womack and Nancy Rogers Womack. I have been unable to find documentation to tie him to the Sherwood Womack family. He married Ann S. Hunt in 1839 and then Sarah E. Miers in 1845 .William went on to become a English professor at Mt. Lebanon University in Louisiana, where he died on 3-2-1862. I well and truly stumped, any help would be appreciated!

I am looking for information on Sarah C. Womack born August 25, 1862, in Kentucky. She married William Lee Holifield December 15, 1878, in Kentucky. They lived in Graves County. William died in 1918 and is buried in the Holifield Grave Yard in Graves County, Kentucky. Family says Sarah died about 1934 in Kentucky but I have not been able to get a death certificate.

Since the entry below indicates an interest in Calloway Co, MO; thought
this might be of some interest--I have left out some and tried to just get
the pertinent info: The author of the book writing in first person.

I had heard that James Womack, a farmer, living near Fulton MO, had an
interesting Jesse James story, so I wrote and this is the story:

The Womack family is a well-known family living in the most famous county
in Missouri--Calloway County, sometimes called the kingdom of Calloway.
(superfulous stuff then)
James Womack was a boy when the incident occurred; but says he
rememebrs it clearly...One day a mounted man rode up and said a neighbor
recommended this as a place willing to take in a stranger..James Womack's
father said he would be pleased..

The man gave his name as John Franklin--skipping again here..one day
the stranger said. "How would you like to have a singing school?"
The school ran two months in the summer...

At the end of his stay he revealed who he really was, "I am really
Jesse James from Clay County," he said. Then he rode away.

"And so," writes James Womack, "I suppose I am one of the few people
living who can say I had Jesse James as a singing teacher..

No date given but the next entry goes to Jun 3, 1871.
Extracted from the book, Jesse James was my Neighbor, by
Homer Croy who actually intervied people who knew the James'.

Bonnie L Womack

I have been away awhile researching another family. I have received some very interesting information on Willima Wesley Womack. I have now confirmed that he was the oldest of 9 children. He was born in Johnson County Illinois on May 19, 1875 and died in Danville Illinois on February 18, 1952. He is buried in Springhill Cemetery - Lot 159, block 25 beside his wife Mary (Marshall) Womack who was born August 16th, 1883. They were married in Stonefort, Illinois. I am looking for the rest of William's siblings. I also know that his father was William Wesley D. Womack. We are not sure what the D stood for.

I have also learned that William Wesley was a teacher and traveled between the schools in Johnson County. If anyone has heard of him or can confirm this it would be greatly appreciated.

I also have cemetery locations for some of his children if anyone is interested.

I am Trying to find anyone with information on the Family of Anthony Womack Living in Conecuh Co. Al. 1867. And anyone with information on Sarah Elizabeth Womack or it might be Just Elizabeth Womack Born abt. 1845/1850 living in Al. in 1870. Thanks

Sam,appreciate the Jesse James story. Adds a little local color to Callaway Co.
Recently came through Fulton, Portland, Rhineland and stopped for Octoberfest in Hermann, MO. My mothers' maternal and paternal parents were in Callaway Co.

Roger Womack

Donald, I sure would be interested in a little more info on this Anthony Womack in Conecuh Co., AL? Like, do you have a spouse for him? and was Sarah Elizabeth or Elizabeth his daughter? Anthony is one of our rare Womack names, I have maybe a halfdozen in my database the oldest being Anthony Hurdly Womack born abt 1780 (spouse Prudence Branch) Greatgrandson of Thomas Womack and Mary Farley another Anthony born abt 1782 a son of Alexander Jr. neither of these lines do i show descendants. No other Anthonys that fit the time frame of living in 1870, even these two would have been very old if it were them. Because of the rarety of the Anthony name in the early generations, trying to find some descendants on these two may be a place to start.

Sam: I don't have anything in my database to connect James Womack with my Jacob Womack of Callaway Co. Must be another line. However, I came across the following information on Ancestry.com this morning: "Callaway County, Missouri,
Obituaries, 1920-1955"--WOMACK, James W. b 3 Sept 1860 d 5 Aug 1951. This item also listed a Mrs. Mary I. Gilmore WOMACK, b 6 Dec 1868 d 28 Mar 1948, Daniel WOMACK b 4 Dec 1922 d 28 May 1952. None of these are familiar to me. I did find Mrs. Ollie E. Womack Farris b 28 Jun 1873 d 29 Oct 1951, Miss Mary Frances Womack, b 4 Oct 1886 d 10 Dec 1952, Mrs. Bell Mona Womack Driskell b 19 May 1884 d 1 July 1955 and Antwine Reynolds Womack b 3 Nov 1877* d 29 Jan 1954, all descendants of Jacob.

I think, based on your Powells, that your Jacob has a lot to do with my line.
For instance, one of my GGG-GF's sisters married a Scott Powell.. her father's name (my GGGG-GF) was Jacob....Also there was a Freeman Farris, who worked for a Womack in TN that married the Boss' daughter, I have found them as Free Farris on census records and her name was shown as Sinda (Lucinda, Cynthia?).
I also have a letter, somewhere around here, written in the late 1800's where Freeman was mentioned in that letter (as Free Farris)..I know my line is linked to the Powells and Farris' but havent done much on the collaterals..
Also, my boss at work is a Powell from Clay Co MO...same place Don Johnson the
actor is from (his father and Don's normally have coffee at a cafe a few times a week)...

(East Texas Womack's)

Hi all!Öwhile reading thru 'History of Rockwall Co., TX 1842-1968' guess who was mentioned on the very page? Yep, you guessed it a Womack!
There was an R.M. Womack who stirred up quit a bit of commotion when he drove his car (mostly during the summer & fall). Seems as tho the car bothered the 'stock' and a few who were just in wagons or on horseback. This was in 1803!
Later on in the book it mentions a W.B. Womack of Sulpher Springs, TX and his son (?) opened up a private bank 'WB Womack & Son Bank'(1900-1903)Öthis was the only bank operating in town (Rockwall). They later sold out to Citizens National Bank. - I'd nearly bet his son was the one with the car, WB!
The only other mention of Womack's in this book was that in Feb. 1912, RM Womack was a Grand Juror.

In the 'notes' section of the 1860 Rockwall Co., TX census bookÖ.A.G. Register md. Frances B. Wommack 21 June 1887 in Rockwall Co.

In the 'Cemetery Inscriptions of Rockwall Co., TX' :
Royse City Cem.- W. S. Womack Mar 12, 1853 - Oct 28, 1918
" " " - (sec 9 West side) Willie Womack 'Mother' 1883 - 1965
" " " " " Marvin Womack 'Daddy' 1880 - 1946 (ssw Willie)

So, that's all I have for East Texas Womacks! Hope someone can use this!

Me again!
While surfing tonight I ran across a Massanello Womack. I've never heard mention of this Womack! The name definitely caught my eye!

Massanello was listed in the Prince Edward County, VA - 1785 Heads of Household at

Other Womack's listed - two William's and yet another Masanello.

There were Woodson, Farley, & Rice listed and some other surnames but I can't remember if they relate to the Womack's or to some of my other lines! - Childers, Ligon (Elizabeth & Wlm.) + more!

Sam: My husband is the Powell line. Georgia---Terrell, Tift & Lee Counties. We have reached a "wall" with David B. who fought in the Civil War. Believe his father was Charles from N. C., but haven't been able to document. I have seen this Scott Powell listed on internet, but don't believe he is in my husband's line. Never say never though!

Iíve done a little article on Claus Von Bulow on my website, Claus was believed to have injected his wife Sunny with insulin, she went into a coma and he was tried and convicted then on appeal was aquitted. What Iím trying to find is the connection to the Womack line, perhaps someone has some information in their databases on this connection. Sunny whoís real name was Martha Crawford was the daughter of Annie Laurie Warmack and George Washington Crawford, Annie was the daughter of Robert Nathaniel Warmack, son of Thomas Warmack, son of Mathew Warmack, son of William Seignor Warmack born 1773 in Virginia died in Goodlettsville, Davidson Co., Tennessee. Some of the family members believe he was the son of a George William Warmack son of a William Warmack born 1706. I have a William Womack born abt 1706 who was the son of Abraham son of our famous John Womack, I donít have any descendants on this William 1706. If anyone has any information on these folks let me know. There is more info in the article on my website it might show a migration pattern of some of your lines.
Thanks, Roger

Eliza and Joseph died in Dent County, MO., Eliza on 6/14/1879.

Thanks. Hope to hear.
