Judy Womack

Our roots are from Jacob(b. 1812, St. Helena Parish, La.) and Keziah Womack of Copiah County, Mississippi. Their children were Richard B.(b.1837), Rebecca(b.1835)m Thomas Ramsey, John H.(b. 1839), Ellen(b. 1841)m Wiley P. Randall, Daniel(b. 1841), Albert G.B.(b. 1845), Jacob Moore(b. 1846), and Jefferson D.(b. 1849). Jeff D. came to Texas as did Ellen and Daniel. We would love to hear from anyone who is connected with the siblings so that we can share information.

Help! I am looking for my biological grandfather, Melvin Haley Womack, Jr. I don't have very much info. on him, I don't even know if he is still alive, but any hints or info. that you have would be greatly appreciated. I know that his immediate family was from Oklahoma,there were some cousins in Texas, and that he served in the military during WWII and was probably stationed in Honolulu ( or somewhere on Oahu or Kauai) where he met and married my grandmother, Alice Kawasaki. They we are also stationed at the Presidio in CA. He and my grandmother split in the early to mid-fifties and she took my mother and uncle back to Hawaii. I think he had a brother named Robert and my mom has mentioned that his mother or grandmother was named Jenny Lena, the surname was Whistler or Whisler? I have never met any of my Mother's "Womack family" as they lost touch after Melvin's mother died and no one in the family ever speaks of him. I would like to find him or any of his family as I am, naturally, very curious about them.

Thank you in advance for your help and I hope to hear from anyone who has information. Mahalo and Aloha from the "Hawaiian" branch of the Womack clan!

I'm trying to figure out where Alfred Jackson Womack and his wife Jane Denkins
came from. Their children and grandchildren were spread all over the south
from Texas to Florida and up through Georgia to the Carolinas.
I've got a sneaking suspicion that they were from Tennessee, but don't really
know. Any clues?

Perhaps someone has more on this family, I don't have any Alfred's with birth dates before 1820 in my database but there is a Jackson Womack born about 1815 son of the below Daniel and Nancy Pearcy. I have nothing on his descendants but several of his siblings children use Jackson as a middle name, might be a place to start or someone may have more on this bunch.

Will of Daniel Womack, Bedford County, Virginia Probate.
Dated 4 november 1829; offered for probate 22 March 1830.

My Grandmother's mother was Sarah Jane Erlsie Womack born 16 Jan 1853 in Hancock Co. Illinois to a father we don't know named WOMACK and a woman identified as Jane Ersland.(this woman was Sweedish and spoke little English as the grandchilren remembered) She was married on the 14 Apr 1881 to George William Stahlman in Bellview Republic, Kansas later moving to Nevada, Story County Iowa where she lived her life and was later buried on the 27th of March 1912. ANY information about this family would make her Great Grandaughter, my mom very happy. She knows nothing of this family!

Johnny Womack Case

Roger, re your message of Dec 2 listing children of Daniel Womack, I have some questions. I have his death date as 22 Mar 1830, but if that was the date the will was probated, it is not likely he died the same day? On the children, I have Ann Sally and Daniel. On this list it is Ann and Sally Daniel? I had May instead of Mary? and I had Julia Benson instead of Judy Benson? Looks like the ones on father's will would be the correct, unless it had been copied a few times? Please set me straight as I would like to get them correct.

Friday, December 03, 1999 at 09:31:02 (PST)
Roger Womack

Johnny, I dont know when he died but would assume it was before the 22 Mar 1830 probate. As far as the names of the children go I wouldn't go changing them around based on a Will. Many of our ancestors did the best they could just getting all the names on these documents, or someone transcribing for them and spelling wasn't a big issue, I would just make a note of the various spellings until you find something more concrete for changing names around. I've seen the same name spelled differently on the same will, don't go by them for correctness.

If anyone can give me any info on our family history it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Received the following info from Bob at R6CTommore

In 1981 I found a book entitled "The Story of Cumberland County, Virginia" by a
Garland Evans Hopkins; published by Cumberland County Series, Historical Monograph No. 3 in 1942 on page 14 is this statement: "In 1627 among the tithables in Henrico were these surnames: Elan, Eppes, Randolph, Carter,Harris, Childress, Woodson, Pleasants, Hatcher, Watkins, Newcomb, Baugh, Lygon,
Womecke, Clerke, Allen, Lockett, Willson, Perkins, Parker."

If someone has access to this record it would be the oldest record of our Womack surname.

David Dunn

Roger, I think there is something wrong with that reference about 1627 Henrico tithables. I have seen the reference before but never found the record. For one thing, the eight original shires, later counties, including Henrico, were not formed until 1634. I suspect the reference includes a typo. I never mind being shown to be wrong when it advances knowledge, and would in fact welcome it this time, but am not very hopeful. David.

David, I was wondering about it myself, I ask if he was sure about the date, he was. So either the book has a misprint in it or something else. Just like to find outfor sure.

Rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated. I'm still here lurking about. :-) I am grateful to everyone (Roger, Sam, David, et al) for keeping these discussions going, and being available to answer people's queries.

I cleaned up the message page and placed the months of May June, July, August, and September in the archives.

Kudos to you on the clean, easy-to-navigate Web site.

I came to your page to do some background checking on the name Womack. I
write fiction, and one of my current characters is a Womack.

I had assumed Womack was an eastern European name, probably Polish or Czech.

Then I read Jan Womack's treatise.

I scanned much of your site and related pages, and followed links, but I
can't figure out if the name is definitely English, of Norman (meaning Old
French) origin, _only_. the name both English _and_ European. In other words, are there
some Eastern Europeans named Womack? (Assuming they didn't come from, or
have ancestors from, England or USA.)

I hope you can provide a quick answer, or direct me to a good Internet
source for the answer.

Thanks. I appreciate your taking the few moments to respond. I look forward
very much to your reply.

My grandmother , Martha Candace Womack Hardin told me she was a direct descendent of Sir James Womack , the Earl of Edinburgh. Sir James was beheaded and the family fled to Holland. His grandson was Abner. Abner's son was John or Gazaway and either John or Gazaway was the father of Rev. William M. Womack of Rutherford County N.C. He fought in the Civil War, surrendered at Appomattox with Gen. Lee then spent 75 years as a circuit riding Methodist Minister in Rutherford County. He was my grandmother's father. I am interested in getting this line straight and finding out more about it.

I have read this story about Sir James elsewhere. Cannot remember where. I
have posted queries on the Scottish message boards, with no success. As I
remember the story, this Sir James was in the 1300's--approximating the year
or years from your post puts him in the l6's or 17's.

This story does contain some credibility for one of our current English cousins
grand, or greatgrand, came from Holland; and they spell the name the same was as we.

Where I work I run across many names. One day I got a call from a lady in Tucson who was from Czech and for the past 35 years or so had worked with people who had ancestors, etc. that came thru Ellis Island that were trying to

She told me that there was a name similar to ours in Czech - Womacek - meaning someting small, but pleasant...I ran the name thru the Czech message board this morn and came up with this: Katharina Womacek

I came across your information and hoped you might be able to make a connection for me. My husband's mother's family were Womack's and Buckner's from Virginia. She is a decendant of Alexander Womack married to Mecly Buckner. Judith Womack married James Buckner. I was just wondering if there was any connection that you are aware of.

Thanks for any help and Merry Christmas

Feeling kinda down about the passing of my dad Walter(Marion)Womack Sr.
Who Passed away on Dec.11 1999.On my wifes Christy Womack's 32 Birhtday The day before my 35 birthday. He was the first cousin of Bryant Homer Womack
He was born and raised in Mill Spring N.C.His father was Collett Womack
and his mother was Annie Ola Byars. His last request was for his ashes to
be spread from the Womack Bridge in Polk County N.C. This bridge is located on
Big Level Rd. About 1 and 1/2 mile before you come upon the Lebonon Methodist
Church.This churchs graveyard is the memorial site for Bryant H. Womack.I know
some of the names in this gravyard and plan on writing down all of the names and
dates on the headstones.I also know of a gravsite about 5 miles from there that
is in the woods that has some dates dating back to the early 1800's and maybe earlier.With numerous headstones all marked with Womack names and dates.I have a video tape of my dad and his brother walking through the woods to this site and taping the headstones. Some of the headstones are not real clear and my dad is saying on the tape that one of the graves has been moved.This tape was made 12
years ago.I will come back to this page and list the names and dates of these
Womacks after we fullfill my dad's final wishes.I will be back before the first
of the year with all the information that I can gather about This branch of the
Womack family and the Serial number of the bridge which I do know starts with
WO.and then the numbers and date. Ashes to Ashes Dust to Dust.

No one in my husband's family has done much genealogy

Well, we haven't talked about the early Womack's in quite a while here. I just dug this up from the Rootsweb AKINS-L mailing list. In regards to James Akin that had a land patent with a Richard Womack in 1673. His daughter Mary appears to be the wife of John "Steal those hogs and apples" Womack.

Subject: Re: [AKINS] Re: James Akins
Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

The Akin family of Henrico Co., Virginia is a very old line, dating back to
a James Akin, Sr. who was granted 250 acres of land in 1665. This James died
in 1710, leaving a will which names his wife, Sarah, and their children:
Mary Akin Womack, James Akin, Jr., Elizabeth Akin Farlow, and Sarah Akin
James Akin, Jr. died in Henrico Co., Virginia, in 1744, leaving a will which
named his children as being: William Akin, James Akin III, Thomas Akin, and
John Akin. The will also mentions his grandchildren by his son Thomas as
being: Thomas Akin, Jr., Joseph Akin, James Akin, Frances Akin, and Isham
Akin. Some of these children may have later settled in what is now
Mecklenburg Co., Virginia (then part of Lunenburg Co.), and their
descendants seem to have gone on to settle in Granville Co., North Carolina.
Joseph Akin and Isham Akin, who both died in Granville Co., N.C. in 1808
leaving wills, were both originally from Mecklenburg Co., Virginia, as were
Lewis Akins, who died in Laurens Co., South Carolina, in 1791, and Thomas
Akins who moved to Wilkes Co., Georgia in 1785 and died there in 1810,
leaving a will. The Akins families of Wilkes, Warren, Elbert and Taliaferro
Co., Georgia are descended from this Thomas Akins.
Some of the North Carolina Akins families are known t have settled in
Tennessee, but I am not sure that they are of the Virginia line.

I followed up with an email to Julie Akins, and she replied with information about the wills related to James Akin. It appears that his daughter, Mary, did marry John Womack (hog stealer). But guessing from the wills, Mary died prior to 1714. She is not mentioned in her mother's will, but John is.

My question do we know that the John that married Mary Akin is the same John that is later in Prince George County? Everyone seems to think he is the same guy. Why?


Thank you for your message. There are several wills for this James Akin
Sr. family. His, dated April 21, 1712, and recorded 1 February, 1713, reads:
James Akin, Sr. of Varina Parish, Henrico Co., Virginia. To my wife, Sarah,
I leave the Indian woman named Rose and her two children, as well as the
plantation for the duration of her life. At my wife's death, the plantation
to go to my son, James Akin. The remainder of my estate is to go to my wife,
and she is to be my executrix. Codicil: to my four children: James Akin,
Mary Womack, Elizabeth Farlow, and Sarah Nunnaly, each 12 pence. Witnesses:
Thomas Chamberlain, Richard Oglesby, Charles Roberts.
The next will is for James Sr.'s widow, Sarah, which is dated 2
February, 1714, and recorded 2 August, 1714. It is Sarah's will which first
mentions John Womack as being the late Mary Akin's husband, who by 1714
appears to have been widowed, as Mary is not metioned by her mother with the
rest of her living siblings. It reads: Sarah Akin, widow: To my son, James,
slaves and items [these are not specified in the abstract that I have in my
records, but would have been listed in the actual will]. To my grandson
Daniel Nunnaly, a feather bed. To my daughter, Elizabeth Farlow, a feather
bed. To my daughter Sarah Nunnaly, items. To my son-in-law John Womack, one
shilling. The remainder of my estate to be divided into three parts, one
third going to each of my children, James, Elizabeth and Sarah. Executor:
son, James Akin. Witnesses: Thomas Chamberlain, William Baugh, Chareles
Roberts. The estate of Sarah Akin was appraised on 24 August, 1714, and the
inventory was recorded on 7 September, 1714, havinh been valued at 21 pounds
9 Shillings and 2 pence by James Baugh, Edward Tanner, Robert Hudson and
Moses Wood.
The third will is that of James Akin, Jr. dated 29 November, 1743 and
recorded in May, 1744, which mentions his children and grandchildren who
received various pieces of his estate of Butterwood in Goochland Co., VA, as
well as property adjoining a Mr. Flinton in Dale Parish, and the remainder
of his Henrico Co., VA estate which consisted of negro and mulatto slaves
and household items, it was witnessed by William Moore, Thomas Poullan and
Henry Poullan. William Moore may have been a son-in-law, as James mentions a
grandson named Thomas Moor. One of James' daughters (name unreadable)
married a Mr. Baugh, possibly a son of the William Baugh mentioned in Sarah
Akin's will as a witness.

I have only been doing research for four months. I have been working
on Womacks for about two or three weeks. I cant believe my luck finding
this site was great. A newly found cousin led me here..bless her!!
I have just finished reading a whole years worth of
my eyes are falling out of my head...but thats head is
about to explode with all the Womack info. With all those Womacks
swimming about up there I am not sure who I am related to...but I will
get this all sorted out..

this much I am sure grandmother Norma Jane Gilbert was
daughter of Sarah Jane Trafton..who was the daughter of Nancy (Womack)
Trafton b.April 19,1823 d.Sept 26, 1913 . The info I have says
Nancy was the daughter of Abner Womack and Anastasia Short. That is
as far back as I go.
Does anyone else have this information...I have no documention yet.

Monday, December 20, 1999 at 16:34:42 (PST)

Maybe someone can help me with this puzzle...
Family lore from several close cousins says my
ggrandmother or her mother was indian...complete with name.
Something like Little Deer...These two women were Sarah Jane Trafton
and Nancy (Womack) Trafton..can someone shed some light on this...or
did this story come out of the air..seems when I was growing up
1950's and 60's everyone I knew claimed to be part indian..

Joyce Wommack

The way I have interpreted the will of Mary Akin Womackís mother is, in 1714 she left one shilling to John Womack. I think the reason she did this is because her daughterís inheritance would become the property of John, so she left him one shilling to solve the problem. Too bad for Mary, but she wouldnít have gotten it anyway and mom did not want him to get anything more than the law would allow. The reason I think this is because John wrote his will in 1725, leaving his wife Mary, "what the law will allow her and no more." This proves that Mary was living in 1725 after her motherís will. Sort of tit for tat sounds like. What a guy!

Monday, December 20, 1999 at 23:01:41 (PST)

I have had several people I have the wrong Nancy Womack...she can
not be Abner's daughter Nancy. Sooooo...

Does anyone have a Nancy Womack born in Mississippi April 19, 1823
married to Malachi Trafton Februay 23, 1841 in, Copiah Mississippi.
She died Sept 26, 1913 in Gonzales county, Texas. She is buried
in the Denton Creek Cemetery in Gonzales county Texas.
Her children were Edward, Edwin, Mary, Elisha, Robert, Sarah. All
listed on the Fayette co Texas 1850 Census. Also listed was Thomas
Womack age 14 .


Monday, December 20, 1999 at 23:16:52 (PST)

There is a chance Nancy was a Toney not a Womack. But can someone
tell me why Thomas Womack age 14 was living with them in 1850 Fayette county there a Toney / Womack connection?

My maiden name is Womack. That is about all the information I have on my maiden name. My father is Earnest Eugene and grandfather is Earnest. My grandfather never spoke of his family something about an arguement that caused him to be disowned. I am interested in knowning more about my ancestors. My grandfather and grandmother lived in Oklahoma because she was a Choctaw Indian. I believe my grandfather grew up in Arkansas. My parents lived in Arkansas about 5 miles from Oklahoma where I grew up in a little town called Hartford.
I am also interested in learning about Helen Womack. Helen was married to Baby Face Nelson.
If anyone has any information on any of these people please e-mail. Thank you

Amanda Womack Tribe:Choctaw Application Number: 498 Charley Womack James Womack James H. Womack Jesse Womack John B. Womack Margaret E. Womack Mary M. Womack Robert H. Womack Samuel Womack William L. Womack These were all listed as being application 498, so must be a family.
Tobia Wommick Choctaw Application Number: 954

Are these related to yours?

Friday, December 24, 1999 at 07:42:14 (PST)

Unless someone has something other than the name on the marriage certificate,
lets lay this Helen Womack/Baby Face Nelson aka Lester Gillis thing to rest!!
I purchased the Biography from A&E on Nelson. I just got thru running thru to
the part where they showed the ACTUAL NAME ON THE MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE! I stopped the vidio on still and copied down her name from that document; AND,
her name is clearly shown as Helen WARWRZYNICK - now if you can get Womack outta that, you a bettah peeple that I am cause ah kain't!!

If anyone has anything other than this that would prove her to be a Womack born,like her b/c, bible record or other OFFICIAL documentation, please refer
the rest of us to the source.

Irealize that one of the movies referred to her as Womack, but that ain't no source!!

My ggrandmother was Earlie Lee Womack Knight b. abt 1886 and died in McKenzie, AL. She was 1/2 indian and married a David Lee Knight, possibly a black creole in Greenville, Butler Co. AL. Her mother's name was Lucinda or Lucinie and may have been called "Miss Cindy". I am particularly interested in any Womacks of any name variation who were born, lived, married, or died in the counties of Butler, Lowndes, Conecuh, and possibly Clay, in Alabama. I do not know if my line of Womacks is related to William Womack or William the Immigrant since I am African-American. I have had little success at finding ANY references to African-American or Native-American descendants of William Womack or any Womack for that matter so any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Greetings Fellow Womack's,
I do hope all had a very Merry Christmas.
I am trying to find the name of my great, great, great grandparents. I know my g,g,great grandfather was in the Civil War and died in the early spring of 1865. It is believed his wife was a cherokee. They had four children, Tom, Willie, Mary Catherine and Zelleole. Mary Catherine was born Dec. 28, 1851. She married William Watson. They had three children, John Abner, and Minnie Catherine.Willie had two sons Pim and Dock.Tom had two sons, Bill and David. Zelleole nevered married. Minnie Catherine is my great grandmother.These were all in Alabama.
Since the day I started this search my heart has been over flowing. Every time I get online and start reading I feel as if I am going to cry. This coming from someone that never fit in. All I ever heard about was my grandfathers family and I was nothing like them (though I loved him dearly)I was the lost sheep. Now the more I read the more I find of myself and the more tears I shed. When my grandma gave me her records for me to finish her work I felt as if someone had given me the world. Although there is very little information it is a treasure to me. I am proud of every tiny bit of information I find. Once I find the names of g,g,great grandad I will put the infomation together in a small hand made book and give a copy to my beloved grandmother.
If anyone out there has any information on the Womack's that came to Alabama I would be forever gratefull if you would send it to me.
Recently someone asked me if I was worried about the coming millenium. I can only say that I feel priviledged to be a pioneer of the future.Those of us that have the blessing to be apart of this need only to look back at the courage and determination of our ancesters. Gird ourselves with this knowledge and go forward.
May have many blessings in the new year.

Since posting a recent query here as to ancestory of John Bentley Womack, b. Dec. 25, 1846, d. Jan. 8, 1914 ( lived and died in N. W., ARK ) I've been asked if he could possibly be a son of Jesse Womack b.? d.Ca 1862, lived Carroll Co., Ark. on Little Mulberry Creek, m. Elizabeth, daughter of Joshua Wharton and one of a family of 12. Could such a family be missed on 1830-40-50 census records? If this can be proven there must be many, many relatives in Newton, Carroll, Johnson and Madison Co., Ark. Just a thought but were people considered Indian skipped by the census takers? I have an ancient copy of a photo of John Bentley Womack and he doesn't have Indian looks. HHPerry
