Roger Womack

"Happy New Year" I'm sure looking forward to the new year on WGN. If anyone has ideas for feature articles, source articles, or anything else you would like to see added to WGN, let us know. We have been on the web going on 4 years with almost 50,000 hits, with many successes. That's incredible for a single surname website.

Wanting infomation on a John A. Womack that married Maggie Kellam on Feb. 18, 1892 in Muskogee, Okla. Could he be the missing brother of Evy Womack, b.july 10, 1880 to Calvin Newton Womack and Matilda Frances Mayberry. Calvin and Matilda were both born in Tenn. and died in Dora, Missouri. Don

I only have information going back to my grandfather who was Henry Clark Womack born in TN around 1870. My father Fred Virgil Womack was born in Mancus, Co. 04/17/1907, died 06/11/94. Henry clark Womack married Willy May Hinchman around 1890. I hope this will give someone enough information to help me track down my family line. My father had two brothers Edgar Womack born in CO. around 1889
and Earl Womack Born around 1900.

Thanks for your Help

Carol Krajnik

I hope one of you Womack researchers can help me. I found a David Womack who is listed as a son of Thomas A. and Louvisa Rice Womack. He died about 1827 in Union County KY and was married to Esther Tanner in 1809 in Rutherford Co, NC. They had the following children: Oliver Clayton Womack (b 1812 Rutherford Co NC), Walton B. Womack, and Ursula Womack. Oliver married first Elizabeth J. Wilson second Esther Mooney third Martha Wagoner. Oliver and Esther Mooney Womack were the parents of Mary E., David, Squire and Louisa. Walton married Rebecca Kerns, they were the parents of George. My question is this: Has anyone any record of David Womack being a child of Thomas and Louvisa? If not, who are David's parents?


Saturday, January 06, 2001 at 05:23:18 (PST)

Carol the following is from notes about this David I received from Roger and others: "Believed to be the son of Thomas and Louvisa Rice, however compiler of this genealogy has doubts about this connection, need proof or some other documentation.
Louvisa was on the Rutherford Co., census with 6 sons in 1790. She was in Kentucky with her youngest son David and his wife Esther in 1810.
Source: Lenda McGuire doslagos@inu.net"

I have him listed but without last name of Esther and only Walton, no Ursula.
Perhaps an E mail to Lenda might shed some more light if anyone here cannot. Keep me posted so I can include that info as a connection/source of sorts.

I am looking for any information on Charles and Ada Wommack who were married around the late 1800's: 1875-1890. They resided in a town that does not exist anymore, by the name of Auburn, Mo.(Near Troy, Mo.) They had 7 children: Emory, Thomas, Louis, Sam or George (?), Martha, and two other daughters (can't remember their names). The births ranged from 1891 to 1917 or so. Ada was part Native American and black and Charles was part white, Native American, and Black. Charles also share-cropped and may have been living on the property of a white land owner in Auburn. If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it.

I've read several of the archived messages about the Sarah Womack born about 1730 that married James Archdeacon-Cody. Has anyone ever determined if she is the daughter of Richard Womack and Ann Childers? Were there any other Womack families known to live around these families? I'm so confused about this connection I have to look up to see down! Thanks for any help.

Ramon Elliott Womack

Has anyone researched the relationship between the Denton/Womack families?
I have a small book written by Edythe Whitley, a foreword written by Walter Womack and published by
Womack Printing Co. in 1959, in McMinnville, TN.

In this book the Denton/Womack families intermarried
and a good deal of information is contained therein.

If this matter has previously been examined please point me to the sites or pages.

I just found the WGN last week. Great Work!!

Roger Womack

Robert, That may be William Newton Womack, son of Newton C. Womack. William married a Rachael Watts and had a son Plenny Virgil Womack in 1871, I don't have any other children.
Then I found a William N Womack in the AR., census, with a wife Mary E. with a son FH Womack born sep1881. These could be the same William's, both were born abt 1850 in Tennessee. Good luck and keep us posted. I still Haven't figured out who Newton C. belongs to. Been trying to figure him out for years, ranks right up there with Thomas Womack and Louvisa Rice in the "opportunity for personal growth column"


Friday, January 26, 2001 at 04:33:09 (PST)

Sometime back, and you'd have to go to the messge archives to find it, someone
from GA posted something that had the name "Hoyal" Womack. Cannot remember if there was a first name or what. But the oddity of the name Hoyal might be a clue in this respect.

Also, I think someone posted something on James Hovill Womack, or akin to that, I found one in England of that name--another connection perhaps??

David Dunn

For Wendy Bashinski. You say you have read the Archives. Does that include the several messages in October 1998 from me, Ann MacDonald and others? I'm convinced that the data quoted there about proximities and other family relationships provides a solid "weight of the evidence" demonstration that that Sarah Womack was the daughter of Richard III Womack and Ann Childers; but there is no proof. And there were lots of other Womacks around in the Amelia/Prince Edward/Lunenburg/Charlotte VA area, but in the critical time period and close proximity they were Richard's kids; the same is true of the later sojourns in Orange/Caswell/Person NC and in Warren/Jefferson GA. I'm more convinced that Sarah was the daughter of Richard III and Ann than I am that Ann was Ann Childers.

Just wanted to add my line of descent to the Womack Geneology. I had corresponded with Roger about two years ago or less trying to find my gr gr grandfather's, William Larkin Womack, father. Through the info Roger sent I was able to trace my ancestors back to John Womack; 1653-1725 Henrico Co. Va. John married Mary Akins abt. 1769 in Henrico Co., Va. Next in line is Abraham Womack I b.Bef.1668, Abraham Womack II 1692-1747, Thomas Womack 1720-1800-02, Byrd Womack b.1772-74, Thomas J. Womack b. 1808, then William Larkin Womack b. June 27, 1832 d. May 10, 1863. William Larkin Womack, my gr gr grandfather, married Martha Furguson in Paulding Co., Ga. His daughter, Ester Texanna Womack was born March 13, 1852 in Paulding Co., Georgia. Ester married Thomas Jefferson Motes March 1875 ( found in Paulding Co. Ga. marriage registry, Vol.I ). I have found on the Womacknet for Bartow Co. marriages a Womack that married a Mary Mote and am trying to find a connection to my Motes. Anyone with ANY info on Womacks from Bartow, Paulding or Polk Co. please let me know.

I have just today been able to find Roger's web site again; thanks to the goodness of an Arkansas correspondent. Judy Estes
