While researching my familytree, My 5th Great Grandfather James Power(s) (1760-1807)was married to Elizabeth _________ . Everything came up Power or Powers as here last name, no maiden name, and all I had was a date of her death 1845. Now I have been informed by a distant cousin that her maiden name was Womack. Elizabeth Womack (1788-1845) They had 7 children together. James Power(s) died at a young age, 47 (1807). Elizabeth re-married a Lewis Arthur. This is all that my cousin had down on her notes. All of this occured in Virginia. Has anyone researched her. Every search engine I have listed with came up with a different Elizabeth, no Womack! Thanks, Louis Power
ps: The Womack Web Site is very nice! Nicely laid out. Wish mine looked that good!

I am posting this and if it ticks someone off - tuff titty - an that is mild to the way I feel - do not ever forward me a joke,not a nothing that you have not ran thru a virus check, and I better know as a frequent contributor or no read.
If it does not pertain to genealogy and has been not been screened - uh uh no way will I read yer mail not accept it - I got 28 years tied up in this stuff and dont need no one messing it up with their net enthusiasism with out taking precautions to ensure no viruses - y'all cannot accept that, tuff - then I bow out - as I sed too much time, and money invested, to get messed up wif johnny comelately and bits and pieces genealogy - if this keeps ye off here, then you shouldnt be heah in the first place - you are only lurking around and waiting and not contributing in the first place - Oh yes, Roger and others will take offense at this - but what I am saying and doing is reality - Womacks worthy of consideration post and contribute and assist - otherwise not family--y'all got me address and if ye got anything worthwhile to contribute - then do so - quit
taking and not giving -
Roger busts his butt helping, I used to until I saw what was happening - 250+ people and less than 10% participation - what a dang so called family!!

About the GLO/BLM records - mostly you could go file whenever the office was open. Some of those offices weren't open all that much, some moved, etc. For each kind of transaction, there were certain rules about buying the land - so for instance if you see one labeled Choctaw scrip - then you know you have to look to the rules for the Choctaw treaty and then figure out if your guy got the scrip himself or sold it to someone who used it. I have the CDs for AL and AR someplace that used to give the rules for each type of transaction for those states - haven't used them since the BLM put the database online. Anyway, if you have a bunch of folks buying land right next to each other, on the same day, at the same office....well, you can conclude that they probably KNEW each other! With my families, concluding anything more is a real stretch because they tended to move as a hoarde, so you wouldn't know if the next guy with same name was a son, cousin, uncle, double second cousin, third cousin once removed or what.

I am also researching the Womacks. My line goes like this, William Womack, Richard Womack I, Richard Womack II, Richard Womack III, Sally Womack who married Captain Jonathan Kemp, and also descend from Richard Womack III's son David Womack, then to Col. Abner Womack, and then to Mildred Womack who married Jonathan D. Kemp. David Womack is my 5th great grandfather and his sister Sally Womack is my 5th great grandmother. Confusing. ( Grin ) I will be glad to share any information I have.
I am listed in the Womack Researchers by name list, but that is my old e-mail address. So, I would like from everyone to know my new e-mail address. It is Thanks, Dianne

I have identified Tignal Archy Womack as my miscreant great-great grandfather.
He is the son of Richard D. Womack and Harriet Bragg. I am extremely interested in hearing from any of Archy's descendants from his "second" marriage: Melissa
Levette Laurentine Shows--particularly through their daughter Cecil Levette who was the one who wrote back to Kentucky to let everyone (including his unsuspecting first wife/widow, Mary who had come to Carter to live. Is anyone in that line. I need to verify some info. The rumors in the family about Archy's bigamy are TRUE! :-)

Saturday, May 06, 2000 at 22:05:41 (PDT)

Rceived by E mail - posting here in case anyone connects:

I have two old photographs which appear to be of the same woman and the
jewelry is the same in both photos. The first was taken at the Shaw Studios
in Cincinnati, OH and says on the reverse "Return to Mrs. M. I. WOMACK, West
Liberty, KY" and a sticker says it was enlarged at a Studio in Chicago, IL.
The second photograph was taken at the C.H. Bryan Studio in Mount Sterling,
KY and says "Love Ellen COX TURNER, Clay Wade WOMACK's Aunt "Big
Mammy"...I'm not so sure on the "Mammy" the handwriting is rough!

I hope that is enough on the "clues", I "rescued" these photographs in hopes
of reuniting them with family. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, let me know
if you are a member of this family or know someone who is.

Thanks, Shelley

Catherine Reiners

Just printed up l68 pages of queries and not a one about the Womack Line that came from Va and settled in Adair and Russell Co. Ky. That line is as follows William Womack and Martha ?
Jesse Womack & Sarah Daniels Woodson
William Womack and Rachel Gilpin
Jesse Womack and Delilah Blair
William Womack and Sarah Elizabeth Shores
William Gaither Womack & Mattie Pearl Antle
Malba Womack & Reiner Reiners
Robert Reiners & Catherine Tryon.
This is my husband's line. There is a book called William & Mary Jane Allen Womack written by a man in Okla. and not one word about this line either. You all are missing a lot by not having this line. Will be glad to share what you may need on this line. E-Mail

Sunday, May 07, 2000 at 16:21:08 (PDT)
Ann McDonald

Well, actually Carlos' book follows some of that Adair Co. line. He's got the line you have down to William who m. Susan Elizabeth Shores - William served in the 13th KY Inf. in the Civil War. He follows only John into the next generation, though.

Monday, May 08, 2000 at 05:17:37 (PDT)

Roger and I want to start a photo page for unknowns. So if you have a photo you havent the foggiest idea who it is, send a scanned image to me and I will post
it and Rog will link from his page---and If you have photos you know who tis,
that would be ok too--the rest of can see what different Womacks/Womack relatives look like---
If you dont have a scanner or access to one; you can mail to me and I will
scan and return the original to you.

So, what'chall think of the eye-dee??

Al Womack

Sam, Ann, Roger, Mark and others who may have an interest. I have placed some information on a MyFamily Website concerning the descendants of George Washington Womack b. abt 1833 in GA move to MS abt 1850 married Francis Caroline Hunter bef. 1854. The MyFamily Website is an invitation type site which means you would need to e-mail me and then I send you the invite. Roger has already visited the site. There are a few old family photos plus some newer ones. The oldest one on file is one with the Andrew Jackson Womack famility and Frances Caroline Hunter is one that may be of interest. I have sent that one to Roger also. I would like to express my appreciation to you four specifically and all others who make this such a great family resource center.

Ann McDonald

Speaking of, I have a site running there now for my McDonald family, who of course intermarried with the Womacks. At the moment, I think I have up stuff only of interest to descendants of Kinchen Womack, although I can post stuff on Mansel Womack's family there as well. Right now it's mostly serving as a place for exchange of data and documents on the earliest McDonald ancestors as we try to figure out who is who in 1790s GA. However, it does have a fairly complete Gedcom for the descendants of my McDonalds. Anyway, give me a yell if you want to visit and I'll have the site send you an invite. Ann

David Dunn

Sam and Roger. I think the photopage is a great idea. David. PS the only Womack that I know the "looks like this" of (besides moiself) is my friend Jack Womack, Professor of History at Harvard. Just out of curiosity, do any of you out there know Jack's line? (He's from OK, and he thinks from oral history that Abraham I is his ancestor).

Roger Womack

I took this from today.
Pioneers and History of Arkansas.
This old soldier came from Virginia to the Arkansas region in 1817, and was well located on the Arkansas river when Nuttal passed up in 1819. He acquired his title as major in the War of 1812, and was one of the most vigorous citizens of the old Pecannerie region. In a trip to the southwestern part of the State lassoing wild horses in 1822 he was killed by the Indians. This is one report; in another report it was noted tha the escaped, and in still another that he was killed and scalped by the Indians. I am not able to say which report is correct, but his prominence was sufficient to give his name to a township in the county, the thriving town of Morrilton, I believe, being its center. Major Welborn and General Lewis were firm friends and contributed much to the respectability and power of this old settlement. It was then a part of Pulaski County, and the most prominent citizens of the settlement, in 1822, other than Welborn and Lewis, were Thomas White, John Hibbin, Timothy Harris, William Frazier, William Lackey, Jacob Slinkard, James Titsworth, Thomas Hibbin, George Bentley, Adustin Rogers,George Carden, John Belcher,
Larkin Womack and Samuel McCall.

Sharon Umiker

Roger (and anyone else who is interested). I am in contact now with some of the descendants of Tignal Archer Womack's other "marriages". As soon as we get the facts straight I will forward info to you. Also, Mary Moore Womack and Tignal Archer Womack had 3 daughters Elizabeth (Betty), Margaret (Meg, married name possibly "Jones") and my g-g-grandmother, Jessie. My mother thinks there might have been sons, too but no family notes/correspondance support this. So, somewhere out there are descendents of Betty Womack and Meg Womack who may not know that Archie wasn't a Confederate Hero...but a real scalawag. Do the names Elizabeth Womack and Margaret Womack (born in late 1850's/early 1860's in Virginia or NC)ring a bell with anyone?

Friday, May 12, 2000 at 20:46:33 (PDT)

Hello everyone,
I finally got my web page done. Thanks to Roger for his help and suggestions. I am totally inexperienced in this and it has taken a long time, so I shouldn't say it is "done". I have a lot of things planned for it, but at least I have gotten this far. Please take a look and go back often. I am open to questions, comments, suggestions, etc.

Sunday, May 14, 2000 at 11:48:18 (PDT)

Hi i am new to WGN and i an researching JOHN L.WOMACK, birth date and place is unknown, but he married NANCY MURRAY in 1845 in Randolph County, Arkansas. their daughter SARAH WOMACK is husbands ggranmother. this line is a brickwall because along the way my father in law was adopted out when his parents died back in 1935 so we have very little information, so i sure could use some help here. If anyone has researched this line please contact me. thanks in advance Diana Jury Elledge

Sunday, May 14, 2000 at 13:25:32 (PDT)

Anyone got any photos that you think are Womacks and that you cannot ID?
If scanned, send to me and will post for others - if not send and will scan
and return to you -

Sam: I am a member of DAR and am not offended by your remarks; however I would like to comment on your reference to people in the organization that shouldn't be. You are absolutely correct. Many years ago not much proof had to be shown and you were in. They are trying to correct the mistakes and now some lines have been closed so that no new members can go in on previous mistakes. Also as new documentation is discovered, changes are made on records. So much more is available to us now than even a few years ago.
We aren't all snobs and it is unfair to generalize. We ARE patriotic and I am proud of that fact. It was reported this month that DAR ladies contributed $320,000 toward the WW II Memorial to be built in Washington, DC. We each paid
$10 to honor someone that served either in the military or at home. 14,799 donors honored 27,637 who served. This year we will be raising awareness of the Korean War Veterans.
By the way, please keep up with your excellent work in making info available to us all. I have not donated anything lately, because I have not been working on Womacks for a while. When I do find something new, I will post it. I try to go on WGN at least every few weeks to see what's happening and catch up. Carolyn

Hope there is something here that can help a Womack. 1850 IL Census Index, page 300, 100 295 shows Martin WAMMACK, Clay & Richland (Cos.?) 1850 122 174 WAMMACK, M., Morgan; 1850 122 357 WAMMACK, Stephen, Morgan Co. 1850 Il Census, Page 2428 has T. Womack, Shelby, Cockren Creek; WOMMACK, Poly, Shelby, Wabash District; WOMACK, John, Macoupin Co.; and a WOMACK, John J., Macoupin; WOMACK, Mary E., Schuyler Brooklyn Township; WOMACK, T., Shelby, Cockren Creek; WOMACK, Jefferson L., Wayne Fairfield; WOMICK, Mary A., Wayne Fairfield (Same household); WOMICK, Milley, Clay & Richland. Perhaps there is a clue for someone.

You havent been around awhile and appears Roger is trying to hold this together-teach him the ropes on how to build one of these query pages in case you decide to take a dump on genealogy - then he can keep it going for the few participants left trying to contribute info..

I am not sure if I have all the information or not, but a Womack infant died in Grayson County, Texas about 1923. Does anyone have info on who the parents were? Was wondering if they could have been Phillip and Arrie Womack?

Looking for Harry Womack, lived entire life in Richardson, Dallas Co., Texas, married to Mary Bell Daniels. Harry and Mary had 3 daughters, Pauline, Lorene and Lucille. Lucille was my grandmother and I have no info on this side of the family. Harry died in Richardson 7-7-1962, both are buried in Richardson, Texas.

If anyone is using data from the Rootsweb Texas death,birth,marriage,divorce sites that I posted recently I suggest you check carefully. I have found two date errors in my immediate family.

In memory of all the Womacks who died while defending our rights to freedom. Every one of them died a hero and they have my thanks.

As I read through all of your messages, it comes to me that the Womack's are English/Scottish not German as I had always been led to believe. I will have the opportunity to be in London and Edinburg for about a week in July 2000. Is there any "holy ground" for Womack's that I need to visit in England & Scotland?

You might try Yorkshire, Norfolk, records keeping -place in London, that the
name escapes me now, that possibly has some of the old colonial documents prior
to the RW...Jan Womack of Leeds has been doing some work there - looks like you
are going to be there and she, Nigel and Milly are going to be in the states in July!!

Do I remember correctly or amd I just dreaming that I once heard someone say
that a Womack may have came across as a possible indenture to a Kemp? A William Kemp If I remember -
Reason I am asking is I ran across a William Kemp and wife, who was unnamed, on the Feb 16, 1623/4 muster for "in the maine." Which, by the way, was not a ship(a district like french quarter or that sort of thing)..
However, there was no Womack listed, and these musters listed every one with the exception of some black people. By the way, this same muster carries the name of the earliest great grandpa of mine I can find on any listing here. I am constantly searching the updates of ships passenger lists, they are by far not all transcribed yet..I dont think I am going to have much luck finding our elusive quarry - the immigrant what ever the name was....
For instance, although I found the great mentioned above on a muster; I have yet to find the ship he came in on - so an unnamed indenture on the ship but included on the muster? - sure wish they had kept those things going--and they may have--but they are long gone--just amazes me these that exist really exist at all!! Ah dang, if it werent fer this we's all be blithering somthings!

This is a response to Sam but everyone note please I've gone to my summer home but with any luck from now on any email to either address will reach me whichever I'm at provided I'm at one of them. Yes, Sam, I also remember but can't place, the reference to William Kemp as a possible connection to "The Emigrant Whoever He Was" and think it was possibly a link to The Bishop or his kin. Maybe someone else can do better. When I get a chance I'll whip through my notes. But Kemp and "The Maine", which you are quite correct in saying was a district (in the Norfolk area) also are connected to another line of mine so I may be confused. By the way some altogether disastrous, and if they weren't pathetic, funny, entries have been made on the web about that line based on the assumption that the reference was to a ship.

Wiley B. Womack

In the early to mid 1890's my dad's, Fred V. Womack, father's brothers were invoved in an incident with an english fellow, over some goverment land in or near the Mesa Lakes, in CO. His dad's brother was shot and killed for trying to fish on the open land that the goverment sold to this english fellow. I used to have an old newspaper article about the incident. There were some Hinchmans ivolved also. My grandad married a Hinchman gal and they all stayed pretty close during that time. The shooting incident nearly caused an international incident between the US and England. If anyone has any information about this and can make a copy of this article I would appricate it. I have moved so many times in the past 10 years I can't find the article. Thanks, Wiley Womack

Sam, I believe this Bascom, is Elijah Bascom Womack, sp Zula Doughty who died there in Greer Co., Oklahoma in 1955; son of Lee Andrews; this line descends from Alex and Martha, if you need more let me know.

Sam, Regarding Richard Kemp. I believe that came from Carlo's book. He proposes the supposition that William "the Immigrant" may have come over in 1623 as Mr. Wymarke who did confess to Sr. S.A. Argell regarding a proposition given by L. Cavendish. He states that since Mr. Wymarke was not listed on the living or dead report of 1624, it must be assumed that he was part of the ships crew, and returned to England. "No doubt, William, upon his return to England was caught up in the turbulence that swept the country in the 1630's and early 1640"s. One source states that he was disinherited by his father. Consequently, William joined the many 'cavaliers' that departed England and sought their fortune in the New World. It is possible he returned to the Colony of Virginia as an aide to Richard Kemp in 1635, (Richard being appointed Secretary of State by Sir John Harvey, Colonial Governor of Virginia). Traveling with Richard Kemp were two servants, names were not listed. It should be noted that the Womack, and the Kemp families were related through the marriage of Bishop Lawrence Womack to Katherine Corbett, and Thomas Kemp to Frances Corbett." At least that is the reference I am familiar with.

Thanks for the input -
However, so we dont get sidetracked, there was no known son of the Bishop - any of the Womacks would have had to be cousins or nephews - as I understandc - his estate, what there was of it, went to a nephew, Edward or Edmund -

Also you metnioned a source that "William" was disinherited by his father. What is the source? With all these Womack's floating around England and kin to a Bishop and others were whatever there like some were, it is astounding to me why there is no backup there or here for a William; NOR, is there any proof of the ship any of them came here on, it is like all reference to them stopped there in England and picked up with the earliest we can find here; knowing he had to be here for awhile to have the estate(s) he allegedly had.

I see a lot of mention of Abraham's and Richard's, John's and Thomas' in the 1600's and a lot of people expound on them.

But, what of the Jacob that was there also in that time frame someone found??

What of that Henry that there is some quasi-record of? I can find no record of a Henry in MA as supposedly he was married there - nor in Barbados as some have mentioned -

I know there are Williams in the lineage; but, I feel I can no longer support any idea of a William being the progenitor of our Womacks America; and am going to have to go with whoever else is left--Richard I or Abraham--

Be honest with you, I am beginning to doubt that my Thomas P was the son of Jacob--neither he nor his children, as was the custom, was mentioned in Jacob's will--Thomas was supposedly dead before Jacob--but the children would, as the law was then, have been eligible for their father's share - Thomas' children got nothing--not even honorable mention...

We have been kicking a dead horse to death, so to speak, with William. There is NO tangible evidence other than word of mouth, which is ok when can be substantiated later on, but that word of mouth has been kicked to death and no substantiation for about 300 years or so. I feel it is time William was left to someones overworked imagination and concentrate on those we have data on.
