Bob, Roger, Ann,

I have the early records for Henrico County on microfilm. I looked the tithable list up again, just to make sure. I'm afraid that it doesn't say son of William or for that matter-son of anyone. It just says Abraham Womecke-2. It looks like whoever wrote the book added that piece of information themselves.

Lynn, thank you. I knew it was added, the questions now - who added it,why and when? Later, I have to go work, this working sure cuts into my genealogy time.

Hey all,

Interesting about that bit on the early Henrico records. I think I have seen that "son of William" part somewhere else besides the history of Pittsylvania County. I'll have to look when I get back...

...where am I? I'm out here in Halifax County huntin' Womacks! Been in the courthouse for 3 days, LVA for 1 day. It is just not enough time. But it is enlightening. I made some good progress on my line, which I will update everyone on when I get back next week.

My question for now is...has anyone ever heard of a Womack Blankenship? I found one in the Halifax County Personal Property Tax Lists for 1785 and 1786. He might be in others and I just missed him (I wasn't looking for Blankenships!). There is some connection to Blankenships in Halifax County, and I'm wondering if this Womack Blankenship might shed some light here.

Talk soon,

I'm looking for descendants of Phedora/Fedora Womack and husband William Austin Cook. Phedora was the daughter of Abner Pryor Womack and Anastasia "Stacy" Short.

Their first three children were born in Trinity Co, Texas (1857-1862), their last six children were born in Bosque County, Texas (1865-1875).

Mark, those Blankenships are important to me. many believe my gggrandmother Catherine was a Blankenship I've never been able to prove that, nor have I been able to prove my William who married Catherine was the son of Francis. Josiah, (son of Thomas Womack and Sarah Woodson)married Keziah Wilkenson who had two sisters who married Blankenships.

This William in the Will above was in Nottoway, which is where my William's first child was born and this William was born about the right time.

1820: (Census) William Womack, Campbell County, VA., lived next door to Henry Blankenship, (son of Hudson Blankenship who had established the trade route ca., 1756 from Richmond, to Lynchburg, to Charlotteville, to areas in and around a village that had sprung up, now Bristal, Tennessee.) Hudson was a "Tinner" (trader) and builder.

According to Oscar Womacks Desc. of Thom. and Louvisa W. Book my G-grandfather Solomon Womack was killed on Peachtree St.,Atlanta Ga.inthe battle of Atlanta And buried under a pine tree on the bank (Peachtree creek?) Can anyone tell me if his grave is marked and how to find it? Someone must have had that Info or maybe it was just family tradition. Thanks heaps Jo Ann

Many researchers have Thomas Womack spouse Sarah Woodson below as the son of Thomas Womack and Mary Farley, however the will of Thomas Womack b abt 1728, and left a will in 1803 in Nottoway Co., VA., proves him to be the Son of Thomas Womack and Mary Farley(See Correcting Womack lines on my website). This Thomas is believed to be the son of Richard Jr. Hubert Mcalexander Jr. emailed me the information below on this Thomas about a year ago, does anyone have anything on this.

Thomas (1706--1780) is established as a son of Richard (c.1676-1723) and wife Elizabeth (no evidence of her maiden name) by an evaluation of the land records. Thomas's holding on Sappony Creek evidently came from his father Richard Jr. His brothers Richard and Matthew are also involved in land transactions on Sappony Creek. These three also appear in 1736 lower Henrico Co. Quit Rent Roll.

Due to a situation beyond my control, I had to give up my original email address of I have now set up an email address I added the number 1 to the former address. I posted a query a few days ago. And in the hope that someone might be trying to contact me directly I decided to post this message to try to eliminate as much confusion as possible. Am still interested in talking to Abner Pryor decendants, I have found a few, there has to be a lot since he fathered (depending on what list you look at) between l8 to 2l children with two wifes.

Randall W. Connell

Reba - My Grandfather's half-sister was Hattie Lee Connell who married Phillip Womack of Bosque County. They were married in DeSoto Parish LA in 1906 and are in 1910 census of Bosque County. Phillip's father was Abner Carroll Womack. Hattie died in DeLeon TX Oct 3, 1911 and is supposedly buried in Morgan, TX probably in an unmarked grave. Phillip remarried to Arrie Graham. He and Arrie are buried in Confederate Cemetery in Alvin, TX. I have seen their graves.

Thanks for the VA info and posting the maps. I'll take a look at them this week.
Ann gave me the list of the records of the parish records of the South Lopham church that are available through the LDS FH Libraries. She said Dan is going to check them out but I can help if he wants. I work in the FHL in the area and would be glad to check out films. It keeps me out of trouble! :o)

Again, Roger, thanks for your help with the VA geography lesson. Happy Labor Day!

Roger Womack

Mark, You got me thinking about those Blankenships. Per Carl's work, states my William was the son of Francis son of Thomas and Mary Farley,I've not been able to prove as yet that my William was the son of Francis. Hubert Mcalexander Jr., e-mailed me about a year ago and said I should be looking at William, son of Josiah because he seemed more likely. I know in 1820 my William per 1820: (Census) William Womack, Campbell County, VA., lived next door to Henry Blankenship, (son of Hudson Blankenship who had established the trade route ca., 1756 from Richmond, to Lynchburg, to Charlotteville, to areas in and around a village that had sprung up, now Bristal, Tennessee.) Hudson was a "Tinner" (trader) and builder.

Hubert had mentioned that two of Keziah Wilkenson siblings had married Blankenships as I believed my Williams spouse Catherine was a Blankenship (not proven yet) I have found that Keziah’s sister Edith married Hudson Blankenship who’s son Henry is the one above living next to my William in 1820. Josiah's, son William had a sister named Rebecca. My William named one of his daughters Rebecca and she was born in Nottoway, Josiah was the Son of Thomas Womack and Sarah Woodson. Josiah was born in Chesterfield Co., and died in Nottoway.
If any of you have anything on this bunch I sure would appreciate hearing about it. Its pretty much circumstancial at this point but interesting.

More on those Blankenships, based off of what I have found on the net and FTM, not proven. Ralph Blankenship b abt 1674 spouse Martha had 7 children, two of them are of interest at this point John born abt 1695 and Ralph Jr., born abt 1698. John married Elizabeth Hudson, and they had Hudson Womack b abt 1740 who married Edith Wilkerson who’s sister Keziah married Josiah Womack who had a son William Womack, who I’m looking for as a possibility of being my William, who married Catherine. (Josiahs will I posted on WGN) Ralph Jr., married Elizabeth (unknown last name) they had 9 children that I have found one of those being a Ralph, I would assume Ralph III, b abt 1735 he married Edith (last name unknown) they had 3 known children, Godepm (Gid) Blankenship, Ralph Blankenship, (IV) and Womack Blankenship. I also found a Miles Green Blankenship descending from Ralph senior but can’t seem to find him right now. I’m wondering if one of those unknown last names of the spouses were Womacks, why would someone name their child, Womack Blankenship a few generations down unless they tied back in again somewhere?

Glenn Womack


I dug around in this mess I cheerfully call a databank, and came up with three or four instances where a Womack girl would marry and the Womack name would show up as a middle name from time to time and once I saw it as a first name. One time it came up in the next generation. Can't help on the Blankenships. I don't seem to have one at all.

Keep digging,

Hi All --
I am Ann McDonald's sister. Ann will be off-line for a little while --
she is in the hospital recovering from a perforated appendix.
So, if you have been trying to get in touch with her, that's why she hasn't

Randall, So glad to make contact, I made a trip to Morgan, Bosque Co.,Tx. back in 1996. I have photo of gravesite of Susan,w/o A.C. Womack. This cemetery was not accessible until a short time before we were there,it was overgrown and is on private land. I got started in genealogy find out about my grandmother Thelma Womack Leach's family because she died at a very young age(53)and I was not able to find out that much about her family. I have come in contact with some really wonderful people and a few not so wonderful. But for the most part it has been a good experience. I have just recently been able to afford a computer so I've been able to expand my horizons beyond the local library. This is a labor of love (I dearly loved my grandmother)not an obsession. I truly want to know where she came from and what relatives she was around growing up. Her father and mother was Thomas(Tom)Washington & Rachel Elizabeth(Myers)Womack.

Randall, To avoid posting the same info (I received a prompt that my message was not sent) and causing an embarrassing double posting of message,I have something on Susan Womack,w/o A.C. Womack. If my early message does not post I'll reenter a more involved message.

Glenn Womack

I have conflicting information. One source says Richard III "died while visiting children in Ga." The other one says he had been living there several years. Anyone solved the puzzle yet? I'm trying to make a file out of this clutter.

Don Womick

I'm trying to establish the following line:

Thomas Womack/Louvisa Rice
Thomas Lewis Womack/Manima Padgett
Isom Womich/Elizabeth Bailey
Joseph T. Womich (or Womic or Wommack)/Esther Lee
John Thomas Womick/Alpha Grose

The problem link is the last one--Joseph T. Womic(h?) to John Thomas Womick. Using the information so kindly posted on the web by several people (Richard Womack is one of them--thanks, Richard), I have found pretty solid links for all but Joseph Womic to J.T. Womick (my gg-grandfather). According to Richard, a Joseph T Wommack, age 25, signed up to fight for the Confederacy on May 8, 1861. This I'm almost sure is the Joseph Womic, age 25, who is listed as having a son John, age 1, in the 1860 census of Rutherford County, NC; a posting on GenWeb confirmed that Isom's son was named Joseph T., so I'm confident that it's the same man. John T. Womick's tombstone gives his dates as 1861-1886; my guess is that somebody was off by one or so on his birth year--all the circumstances point to him being the same person as Joseph's son John, but I can't find anything to confirm this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, good grief. I called Roger Womack "Richard" in my post below. I'm sorry, Roger.... I'll proofread better next time :(

Thanks for the clear-up. I sometimes think about some of this stuff too much and create some of my own confusion, but I hate to accept something that doesn't make sense. Like in one place I was snooping in had an old guy siring
a child 11 years after he died. Anyhow Thanks. Now I must get back to growing an ulcer. Ha!

Rereading my last posting I am prompted to do two things. First, we sometimes forget to follow one of the golden rules of genealogy research which is to give credit to our sources and I remember that it was Ann McDonald who first told me when and where Richard III croaked. Second, speaking of Ann, I'm sure we all wish her a speedy recovery and return to these pages where she is sorely missed.

More Richard III stuff:

I am now looking into Abraham Womack, s/o Rich'd III.

In one place I have Abraham marrying 1st Martha Watkins; m. 2nd Martha Mitchell.
In another place I have Abraham m. 1st Martha Mitchell; m. 2nd Martha Watkins.

Any clarification appreciated.

Food for Thought Department. I am preparing to do some serious searching through parish records (when I get to Key West and my local FHC), in the course of which I have looked through the IGI at Womacks. I have ignored all those who are sourced only through submissions to LDS for LDS Church purposes. I have looked at those who are extracted from or referenced to actual English parish records. I was looking for the supposed "Wragby, Lincolnshire" Womacks. While there is a Wragby in Lincolnshire, I found no Womacks from there. There are a very few from a Wrawby in Lincs. On the other hand, there are a whole bunch from Wragby Parish in Yorkshire, many from the 17th century. Now it is interesting that while Wragby Yorks. is now and was then a parish, there is no town of that name and so it's not on the map, the parish consisting of parts of several towns. In the Wragby Yorks. parish of that time there were Richard, William, John, and Thomas Womacks. No Abes. In the Norfolk family there were Williams, Johns and Thomases, no Richards or Abes. Now we know the Yorkshire and Norfolk families may be related. I expect the Wragby Lincs reference stems from the fact that some early researcher couldn't find Wragby Yorks on the map and therefore made it Wragby Lincs. Your thoughts?

All you double MM Wommack's I need some help. I met a very nice lady named Carol Wommack who came into the dealership, he son bought a car. Her grandfather was named Pleasant Traverse Wommack sp Mary Caladonia. Pleasant was born abt 1868 possibly Missouri, died in Joplin or Springfield, Missouri abt.,1957. His son Oscar L. Wommack born 1888 died 1982 in Denver, Colorado (Carol's Father) Pleasant had a half brother named Randolph, born 1877 died 1971 in Everton, Missouri. I think I'm close to making the link to those Missouri Wommack's, but I believe I'm a generation short on someone. Any help please.

Tuesday, September 12, 2000 at 23:16:32 (PDT)

Searching for any descendents of LAWSON HILL NORTHCUTT WOMACK (b. abt. July 1867). He was a son of Abner, grandson of William (Big Billy), GGrandson of William, GGGrandson of Thomas & Louvisa Rice. His kids names appear to be Clovier, Orson, Winnie, Osie, Wanda. Supposedly moved to New York state to work at a hospital (after 1920). Died probably 1930's.
I'm getting closer to having data ready on Abner, mentioned above, and descendants.

My GGG Grandmother was Anna Puckett daughter of Zachariah Puckett b. abt 1775. She was married to Elihu Knight son of Solomon Knight and Rebecca Hunt. I need help in identifying Zachariah's wife(s). I have through my lineage that Edith Jackson b. 1799 was Anna's mother. In looking up other references I find an Edith Keater b. abt 1779. I show eleven children being born for whichever Edith and Zachariah with the first Isom abt 1801 and Anna 1829. Can anyone shed any light on this and tell me if he was married twice and if so which children goes with which Edith? The following are what I have for their children:
Isom Puckett b. abt 1779 VA
John Puckett b. 1803 d. 7 Mar 1876 NC VA ?
Alvina Puckett b. abt 1805 VA

Ann McDonald

Hi All! I'm at home recovering slowly. Thanks to my sister Ruthie, who is normally a lurker, for posting for me and talking to you all.

As for a quick message - Glenn, Abraham m1 Martha Mitchell in Granville Co., NC bond date on 17 Mar 1763 - he apparently m2 Martha ? - possibly Watkins. There is no known record of the marriage - as far as I can tell, the Watkins basically is a guess based the fact that down the line the kids were very fond of naming their children after their ancestors and one of them got named Martha Watkins Coleman. And if you can find a trace of the youngest of that family, you are doing pretty well. I do know that the William who Carlos lists as the son of Abraham in this marriage is not correct, and I know a few others that aren't correct, but I don't know who is the right one.

I found this Womack information on the 1900 federal census soundex for McLennan County, Texas (where Waco is located)

1900, McGregor, McLennan Co, Texas, Pc't 5, ED 87, Sheet 1. Line 7
William W. Womack, 47, b Nov 1853, Mississippi
Minda, 44, b Dec 1856, Louisiana

My grandfather, A. F. Cook moved to McGregor from Bosque County, Texas shortly after the 1900 census was taken. His mom was Phedora Womack, d/o Abner Pryor Womack of Bosque County.

I don't know who William was. Just thought it might help someone.

Joyce, thank you, thank you, I'm sure this has to be the same family, Randolph being a half brother of Pleasant and we have the same DOB so I'm sure we have the connection. Carol will be excited.

Hello everyone,
While attemting to trace my family tree I discovered a Womack connection. My ggg grandmother was a Mary Ann Womack, born 1834 Lambeth, Surrey, England. She married a William Frederick Springate on 20 Nov 1852 (in Surrey England). Her parents were William Womack b. abt 1797, and Catherine b. abt 1792. Williams parents were Joseph Womack and Sara both born abt. 1770. Mary Womack and William Springate's family remained in or around London England until my family came to Australia in 1969. If anyone has any info on this line of the family it would be greatly appreciated. Sorry I don't have any more to contribute.
Best regards - Tony Dell

Anyone out there ever heard of N. Margaret Womack? She was born in 1856 and died in 1939 and she is buried in Arkansas beside her husband David Kelley born 1858 and died 1929? This couple is my great great grandparents. I was told by their son, my great grandfather, James Silos Kelley, that N. Margaret was from Knoxville, TN and her father's names was Henry J. Womack. I would appreciate any information. Thank you.

Hi I am trying to find out information for my dad about his dad and his stepbrothers and stepsister. I do not have much information to go on. My grandfathers name was Sam Conn and he was in prison in Kentucky, Ohio and he escaped from prison, I have no dates on this. I was needing the prison and why he was in prison and when he escaped?

The names I have of his stepbrothers and stepsister are:
Emil Conn
Stanely Conn
Wallace Conn
Hazel Conn
Joseph Conn
It would be great if anyone has any information for me so I can give my dad some answers.

Dana, if she died in Arkansas in 1939 (or anytime after 1917 for that matter)there is likely a death certificate on file in Little Rock at the vital records office - give them a ring for the current address and price. Chances are about 50/50 it will list her parents.

Dana, maybe we can get some help here. You have N. Margaret Womack sp David Kelley, as the daughter of Henry J. Womack. Through the info I gathered from you and others, I have Henry J. Womack with spouse Rebecca Garrett and a daughter Nancy Margaret Womack who married David Kelley. I do not have the connection on this Henry J. Womack’s ancestors. What I have in my database is a William Henry Womack sp Rebecca Garrett in Grant Co., Arkansas with a daughter listed as Margaret Kelly Womack, no spouse listed. This middle name could be a married name, it would be worth looking into. William Henry Womack sp Rebecca Garrett, is the son of Joseph P. Womack sp Creassy Daniel, Joseph P. Womack is the brother of my gggrandfather Larkin A. Womack, son of William Womack sp Catherine. Maybe someone out there has a little more that could help us.

I think I am searching for the Womack no one else wants.:O) Harvey Womack/Wamack married Gladys Braase 3 July,1907 in Blaine County, Idaho. I found Gladys on the 1900 Blaine Counry Census and then poof, it is a brick wall. Does anyone by chance have anything on these two??? As you can see, I am rather lacking in the information department for this family. Anything will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much for you time,

Thank you.

I am trying to determine if Asa Alsobrook, Lewis Alsobrook, Martha Alsobrook & Landon Alsobrook are the children of James ALSOBROOK & Temperence WOMACK. James & Temperence married on 13-Mar-1783 in Southampton VA. Temperence WOMACK has been said to be the daughter of Thomas WOMACK & Elizabeth _______.

James was the son of Howell Alsobrook & Elizabeth (Carter?)of Halifax County NC. He moved from Halifax NC to Jones County GA with several of his siblings (Amos, Howell, Carter & Elizabeth).

Asa, Lewis, Martha & Landon are all in Jones County but are not children of any of the other Alsobrook men.

1. Asa married Mahala Sanders (d/o Micaijah Sanders & Gillia Maddox). They had children: Micaijah, Mary A., Charlotte, William, Elizabeth, James, John J., Madison, Francis Marion, Washington Harvey, Martha A., Frances Ann, Samantha, Gillian, Andrew & Amanda.
2. Lewis married Alcey D. Martin and had children: Jordan Womack, Thomas, Henry, Barney, Robert, George, Asa, Sarah Jane, Lewis, William Douglas, James A., John Nathaniel, Martha E.
3. Landon married 1st to Tamsey Brantley (d/o Edward Brantley). They had children: Temperence, Jesse H., Brantley W., James W. Landon married 2nd to Roseman Smith and they had children: Andrew J., Frances M., Henrietta, Amanda, Landon C., Eldridge N.
4. Martha married Frederick George. I don't have a list of their children.

The naming patterns are strikingly familiar to the names I found among the Thomas Womack family (particularly Carter Womack's family).

Has anyone found any records in your research identifying the children of Temperence Womack?

I want some help with this deed abstract:

Deed #67 pg. 134 Abraham WOMACK, Jr., for love and affection, to my son, Thomas WOMACK, all my land on Coldwater Run and Swift Creek, 400 acres. Witnesses: William KENNON, Arthur MOSELY Signed: Abraham WOMACK Recorded 1 Feb 1708...........Film # 1697555 Henrico Co., Virginia Deeds.

Now Thomas Womack who married Mary Farley is always identified as the son of Abraham Sr, who left his will in 1733. It makes much more sense to me, considering the ages of Thomas's children, that he would have been born ca 1687, and coming of age when this deed was executed. According to the age of her father, John Farley Jr., Mary Farley could not have been born before 1690. Also that the Abraham of the 1733 will was actually Jr.

I visited a Womack cemetary in Warren County recently. The only marked tombstone is that of William Womack, born 1773. He was a son of Thomas and Louvisa Rice Womack and the father of William(Big Billy) Womack in my line. The site is on Green Hills Rd and has not been maintained for many years. There seems to be at least 5-10 other graves but the markers are only field stones with no information. Does anyone have a record of who else is buried here? I checked the Warren County cemetary books and found no record of this site. Any help would be appreciated.

Roger, Ann, et al:

Hi everyone (Ann, hope you're feeling well!). One of my cousins just mailed me a photocopy of the marriage bond for John Counts and Jesten (Jessie) Womack in Carter County Kentucky. The marriage was performed at the home of Harriett Womack (wife of Richard D. Womack.) And a Susan Womack was one of the witnesses.

Roger, I just thought you would want to know that this is the first hard record I have that show that my Womacks belong to Richard and Harriett's line--specifically their son Archie who, by then, was off in Texas with his second "wife" and family. I am so excited.

I am going to check the Lee County, Va records for evidence of Archie's marriage to Mary Elizabeth Moore in the late 1850's/early 1860's.

In a nutshell, Roger I am one of your success stories. Because of you I found which Womack line I belong to. I can't thank you enough.

And, Ann: Did Dan check those Parish records yet? You mentioned he was going to look at them in Florida. Let me know if you want me to order them, too. I'm sure the church has more than one copy of films. My best to all!
