Help!
I am looking for any thing at all on Joseph Womack, born around 1820 +/=, don't know wife's name.
Son Gilbert Womack, probably born around 1840. Married to NANCY JANE WOOD, around 1860, reportedly in Missouri.
Their daughter: Mary Elizabeth Womack, born about 1865 in Missouri, married to John Martin Edge in Web City MO in October 1885 for sure.

Does Anyone have anything on these womacks? I have been at a dead end for ever on them!

Please?

Here's one I expect Ann to know but will ask here as others may be interested: we always say Richard III bit the dust in 1785 on a visit to Abraham in Hancock GA. How do we know that?

With all of the Womack's and Womack history in Alabama I am surprised not to find a family reunion listed. I am sure there are many of us that decend from the Abraham lineage out there. If anyone knows of a family reunion in Alabama I would appreciate the info. IF there is not one then we should start one.
Happy searching to all.

Well, I don't know how we know that Richard died visiting Abraham in Hancock Co.,, GA. I would have to go look! I do know that Abraham died in Hancock Co, and his will was dated 1797. And that Richard was supposed to be living over
in Burke Co. his son Jesse - other than that...heck, I dunno! I'd really have to go check through the files.

The only source I have seen of Richard III, dying in Hancock Co., Georgia is from Carlos Womack's book. It says: "He Lived in Henrico Co., Virginia. Later moved to Amelia Co., then to Lunenburg Co., where he patented 2600 acres in 1756. From there he moved to North Carolina - moving again ca 1765 to Burke Co., Georgia. - He lived with son Jesse in Burke Co. - Died while on a visit to Abraham in Hancock Co., GA." No source for this info in his book.

I have a question for somebody. While looking at some old land patents I got to wondering what they were talking about. It goes in part, "along side of ye swamp two hundred poles to ye hiccory tree...". Now comes the question. Are they counting fence posts or was a pole a unit of measurement?

Ignorantly yours,
Glenn

David Dunn
dadunn@terranova.net

Glenn. A pole is indeed a unit of measure, equal to either a rod in length or a square rod in area. Now I'll ask a question. Does anyone have a record of a deed from Richard Womack to John Womack in 1680? If so could you post the text and a source? Thanks, David.

Measures

Pole = 5 yards or 16 feet = 1 rod / rood /pole or perch.
A square rod or perch was 30 1/4 square yards.

Chains
7.92 inches............= 1 link
100 links ( 66ft) .....= 1 chain
10 chains .............= 1 furlong
80 chains .............= 1 mile

Paul N Womack
womack1@aol.com

Dear Cousins; From reading your notes etc, it appears that my line of Womack's fell off the tree in the mid 1750's some where in the SouthEastern US. Back about then, someone headed North and Northwest, stoping when they got to Iowa. Working back Paul N Womack b.1942 (me), Albert L b.1909, Charles E. b.1875, James F. b. 1850(?), Walton B. b. 1815, David b.1788 (?), Thomas A b.1743. That is the end of the line that I know. Can any one take me back from Thomas? On today's end, it is a little lonesome also-- I (Paul) am an only child, Albert was the only boy, Charles had one brother who also only had one son & he had only daughters (so I'm told).

My GG GM was Willie Morrison WOMACK, born 1870, possibly Jefferson Co, Ark, died 1962 in Drew Co, Ark. Married William BROWN in 1887. Willie's parents were William (or Alexander or John) WOMACK, wife Mary E. STUCKEY (no additional info on him)
Willie had one sister, Manie Leona, born 1871, married Robert Hughes CURRY, probably Lincoln Co, Ark. and they had one brother, Winford or John, died young in train accident.
Family tradition says Willie WOMACK had strong native American heritage, but we have no proof. Thanks for any help.

Well I haven't been here in a while but was just reading through some of the past messages and thought I would throw my 2 cents worth in. I am 1/8th Cherokee Indian and a charter member of the First Families of the Cherokee Nations so as you can see I have done much research on the Native American line. I can say that while searching through old census records for the Oklahoma Indian tribes I have stumbled across a Womack line that is of Choctaw or Cherokee (most likely Cherokee) descent. They are related through the "Jolly" Indian line but can't remember just where the connection is. So if you folks want to trace that line you need to track the Jolly family line that came to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears around 1838. A good web site to start your search belongs to a cousin-in-law through the Cherokee side of my family. The URL is:

http://members.aol.com/bbbenge

She has lots of links that will take you to different records, etc.

Hope this helps someone out there!

My Womack line is through Steven Womack and Tempi Chandler. I have just recently aquired a GEDCOM file of Tempi Chandler's family if anyone is interested drop me a line.

Happy Hunting!

The fourth child of Green and Polly Wallace Womack was Lucretia Womack, b. 8/11/1822 in Illinois; married 2/21/1839 in Shelby Co., Illinois, John Lankford. Family Legend is that Lucretia d. in Cottonwood, CA., about 1906. (Tillie Womack Edwards states in a letter to our grandmother) Father, (Alexander, son of Green) visited a week with "Aunt Tish" when he was in Cincinnati; and she died about two years later.") This would be abt., 1915-6.

I left a message once. I sending another I don't know much about my grandfather he never told anyone about his family (seens there was some bad blood). His name was Earnest Liland Womack born in Weeks Ark. That is the only information I have on him no birthdate. His son (my father) was born Earnest Eugene Womack Oct. 7, 1933 in Heavener Oklahoma. My dad's mother was Johnnie Kurksey she was born in Loving Oklahoma ( which was named from her great grandfather Loving) and she was a Choctaw Indian. My children and I have our DIB cards ( degree if Indian blood). My grandparents had 15 children...13 boys and 2 girls. I would like to know about my grandfather's family and if he has Choctaw blood. You see I can not prove my children and my full amount of Choctaw blood through my grandmother's side because my fourth grandmother was afraid to admit her full amount. My children and have strong blood lines we look Choctaw and our very proud of our heritage. When I was in college I worked for the American Indian Center and I know how hard it is to prove your NA blood line. If anyone could help me it would be very appreciated.

This is to Roger Womack: I recieved your email and tried to email you back but wouldn't go through. So I am putting the information here. The dates for my father in law James Steinbeck Womack are, born Feb. 11, 1919 and died on December 4, 1970. He lived in Olive Branch, Illinois and then in Grafton, Illinois. His father Thomas Franklin Womack was born on March 21, 1869 and died on March 31, 1947. I'm not sure where he was born, but I do know he is buried in Grafton, Illinois. And Thomas's dad Steinbeck Womack I have nothing on. Someone in my husbands family said they found info on Steinbeck Womack in Virginia, but they aren't sure where and I haven't found him there. That's about all I have besides all there children and wives. And I don't have many dates on them either. Except Thomas Womack's wife Lena Underwood, I have alot of info on her and her family. With alot of my husbands family passed away or not talking it's hard to find out information on locations. So I'm doing the best I can, but not coming up with much. Hope this helps. Thank you.

My name is Jamie Womack. My grandfather and his brother's and sister's are Emory,Nora, Myrtle, Louis, Thomas, George, Martha, and I believe that was it. Their parents names are Ada and Charles Wommack. They lived in a town that does not exist anymore, by the name of Auburn, Mo., it would have been very close to Troy, Mo. If anyone can help me I would greatly appreciate it. My cousin Dawn and I are trying to give our family their history. We know that we have American Indian and White members in our family and were farmers, I think this information would help in finding anyone who has good records.

Pamela:

The Oak Hill Cemetery is in Red Bluff which is the seat of Tehema County. I think (not sure) it serves surrounding towns like Cottonwood. My father, Stanley Eugene Womack leased a dairy in Cottonwood prior to 1947 and then later after 1949. I was born in Red Bluff in 1946.

I copied the following quotation from a web query page for Tehema County, CA. You could contact to verify burial place and date:

"Here is the phone number of the Oak Hill Cemetery in Red Bluff. The lady is quite helpful.530-527-4417. There was 2 funeral homes there that I can remember. Hoyt Chapel, and Fickerts Mortuary. These have always been there as long as I can remember. You can also contact the recorder at the court house".

Good Luck

Hello all you Womacks!!!!! I haven't posted in awhile so I thought I might today.
I am seaching for decendants of brothers JOSEPH WOMACK & WATSON WOMACK from CALIFORNIA. My mom believes Joseph may have lived in the Mountain Veiw, CA area in 1966. These two are my GGrandfather JACOB "MOORE" WOMACKS 1/2 brothers. Their father was A.G.B. (ALBERT) WOMACK and Joseph and Watson's mother was CATHERINE ROLLINGS. They are originally from Louisiana and moved to California after A.G.B.'S death in 1921 or 1923. I would place Joseph and Watson being born after 1880 that is when I show A.G.B. & Catherine married. Looking forward to hearing from some cousins!!!!!

My beloved grandmother, born Violet Agnes Womack on May 18, 1910, just passed on this past October 7, 1999. She would tell me of our Cherokee heritage, but she would never speak about it to anyone but me when I was a small child. As the years went by, she wanted to speak less and less of the family she left behind in Missouri, yet she passed some of the old ways onto me. I yearn to know who my long lost family on her side is. I don't even know her mother's name, as her grandmother and grandfather raised her. She described her grandmother as cruel and grandfather as very kind and never told me their names. She was born in Dora, Missouri and I think lived there with her grandparents. She also lived in White Plains and Springfield as a young woman and worked as a seamstress in a Springfield factory. She married my Grandfather, Glen Brewer, who I am told died shortly after I was born. I've never known his side of my family either and am seeking them too. She had three children all now deceased,
They were my aunt June, uncle Robert (Bob) and my father; Donald Lee Brewer, who passed on 1982. She lived also in Austin Texas. After my Grandfather died, she married Eugene O'Rourke, a railroad engineer all his life and he moved her to Tualatin Oregon, where they both lived out the rest of their lives for 37 year in the home he built for her.
It is with tremendous love and respect for my grandmother, that I seek out my ancestors. Grandma was taught to be ashamed of her heritage but I am not! Her spirit is now free. I seek for my heart to be free of the yearning for those we've lost.

My beloved grandmother, born Violet Agnes Womack on May 18, 1910, just passed on this past October 7, 1999. She would tell me of our Cherokee heritage, but she would never speak about it to anyone but me when I was a small child. As the years went by, she wanted to speak less and less of the family she left behind in Missouri, yet she passed some of the old ways onto me. I yearn to know who my long lost family on her side is. I don't even know her mother's name, as her grandmother and grandfather raised her. She described her grandmother as cruel and grandfather as very kind and never told me their names. She was born in Dora, Missouri and I think lived there with her grandparents. She also lived in White Plains and Springfield as a young woman and worked as a seamstress in a Springfield factory. She married my Grandfather, Glen Brewer, who I am told died shortly after I was born. I've never known his side of my family either and am seeking them too. She had three children all now deceased,

How did William, the Immigrant enter the picture? I've prowled in CD's and other sources for over a year, and only find him mentioned as an ancestor, possibly from two or three places in England. I just can't come up with anything more or less concrete about him. This is sort of a survey of opinions.Or maybe a plea to be pointed in some direction or the other.

I am responding to all the great information I have received since finding this webpage. I am the great great granddaughter of Lucretia Womack and John Lankford. I find that they left Illinois between 1846 and 1850 and relocated to Grayson County Texas. I believe that Lucretia died in Grayson County but have not found the record yet. My great grandfather was their son, Prior Lee Lankford born in 1854 in Grayson County.

While playing with CD #357 Irish to America - looking for my Irish immigrant relatives (a total loss, BTW) - for fun I ran through Womack. Indeed! Two Womacks arrived in NY in 1850 from Dublin. They were English, but the ship came from Dublin. No further details - one was C. Womack, the other Mr. Womack and they were on the same ship. The CD's going back because I'm so ticked at myself for once again failing to find my Irish immigrants - who like the Womacks in VA in the mid 1600s, apparently landed by parachute in Massachusetts in the 1840s.
