I believe there was something brought up sometime about the Richard Womack
and Nancy or Ann Childers relationship and whether they or she ever existed.
Perhaps I read that wrong; but there was a relationship between a Richard Womack and an Ann someone:
LUNENBURG COUNTY VIRGINIA WILLS 1746-1825
230. Hall, William 1-12-1753; 8-8-1753; W.B. 1/125
Mentions: Sons: Thomas Hall, Moses Hall
Granddaughter: Elliball Hall
Executor: None mentioned. Moses Hall qualified as administrator
Witnesses: Richard Womack, Ann (her X mark) Womack.
Looking for information on my ggggrandfather, Larkin Womack, b. 5 Oct 1785 in
IL or MO. He m. Frances (Fannie) Basye bef. Oct 1815 in IL or MO, dau. of Agnes
Ballew and John Walter Basye. (This wonderful news I learned from Roger in
Sept!) The Basye genealogists I contacted on the Net have no other information
I have read that one Larkin Womack and family were enumerated in 1832, 1834, & 1835 in Crawford Co., AR; one Larkin Womack was deeded 320 acs. & house in 1830, Sebastian Co., AR. I have also read in "Pioneers and Makers of Arkansas" that one Larkin Womack was one of the prominent citizens of the settlement of Morrilton, Conway Co., AR in 1822.
But I cannot shake any information loose about my Larkin's ancestors. The descendant history I will gladly share!
Thanks to WGN, I met my cousin Max Womack! Mark, Roger, Sam, et.al., keep up the great work!
How not to post dates in your family history files:
Is this March 10 or October 10?
Is it 1604, 1704, 1804, 1904?
Is it Nov 10 or Oct 11?
is it 1589, 1689, 1789, 1889 or 1989?
Even dates like these where the year is shown are suspect:
Dont naturally assume that one will take the dates
as March 10 1904 and Nov 10, 1989; or, April 10, 1895 and Nov 10, 1931
which they probably are. Assumptions are not well received, nor taken, in genealogy; as we all know.
Remember European dates are shown as day-month-year..
and a lot of older dates followed that pattern - Also, military
dates follow the European fashion--
If it is March 10 and 1904 or 10 Mar 1904 say it! Even if the marker
or other source shows the numbers - you will be doing not only others a
favor, but yourself as well...
From time to time, I may post suggestions that will help you arrange files so they are not only better looking to you(and to others as well), take less space on your harddrive or web page; AND, the big pay-off, will merge more easily on family history software. That is providing Mark and Roger do not object.

I live on the Norfolk/Suffolk border England.My Grandparents lived in a small village near Norwich called Marliingford.My Grandfather sadly died last year (24/4/1907-14/5/2000 and was buried in Marlingford church.I know that he was one of 7 brothers and sisters,most of whom lived local.Now I think only one of his sisters is still alive,she's 103 (I think] and still rode her push-bike around her village up until she was 95.My Grandmother died in August last year after a long illness.She was also buried at Marlingford,the village they loved so dearly. I know this doesn't go back very far but I'm sure I can dig out some more information if required.
Perhaps if you have a little time, you might review some of the parish registers and see if anything has been missed way back? Just a thought.
I'm looking for information about Levi Womack who married Polly Ann Baker 08 November 1834 in Shelby Co., Illinois. I have their children listed as Elizabeth Rose, Joseph William, Benjamin E., James, Hester Ann, John Ashley, and Levi. I know that Levi died 19 December 1848 in Taney Co., Missouri. Polly Ann went back to Illinois. She also married a Thomas Robison. They traveled to Southwest City, McDonald Co., Missouri. At the onset of the Civil War, Thomas and Polly Ann traveled back to Illinois. Joseph William enlisted in Arkansas with the South. Benjamin went back to Illinois and enlisted with the North. Both Joseph and Benjamin are buried at Saratoga, McDonald Co., Missouri beside each other. Am searching for any information on Levi and how he ties in with the other Womacks. It has been suggested that he was the son of William and Rebecca Parker. However, I have not been able to document this. Can anyone help?
I am trying to find information re: my 3-Grandfather, William Womack. He was
supposedly born cal. 1957 in Rowan Co.,North Carolina, and died in Cave-in-Rock,
Hardin Co., Illinois between 1818-1820.
His father was Thomas Womack,born cal.1724 in Henrico co.,died 1799 in Rowan Co., North Carolina. His mother was Sarah Owens, daughter of Richard & Elizabeth Owens. Thomas & Sarah married cal. 1748 in Rowan Co., North Carolina.
One of his sons was Green Womack who is my 2G-Granfather. Green was born 17 June 1788 in North Carolina. He married Agnes Galeon (2nd wife) 17 January 1828 in Gallatin Co., Missouri.
I am trying to prove whether Green's father is really this William Womack. A lot of proximity documents point to that possibility but I would like to find some kind documentation to prove that. I would greatly appreciate any help anyone could give me. Thanks!! Marty Simon

hello, in the past i have seen messages that imply german origins for some womack families, i just took a book on loan from the phila pa. public library, titled the story of pennsylvania germans, this book is unique because it was first printed in 1898,here is a brief excerpt,in 1709 to 1710 because of religious and political turmoil in the palatine region of germany, 13,000 palatines migrated to england, they were allowed to stay there by queen anne, many of them married and assimilated with the english,3,800 of them were sent to lmerick co. ireland, many others were sent to the british colonies in america,even though this book does not give specific surnames, it does give a concise account of early german immigration to the colonies of ny, nj, md, pa,va, nc, sc,ga,tn,ky,. this info seems to verify the possibility that some womack families do indeed have german origin, as my family has always asserted, i am continuing to research the possible connection of the womack surname with german surnames, is anyone else interested with this line of research?
I am looking for information about Grace L Womack who was married to Thomas Jefferson Travis (aka Timothy) on April 20 1920 in Ennis, Ellis county, Texas.They lived in Texas for a while then moved to Indio Calif and to Long Beach around 1930. Thomas(TIM) died in CA in 1935. They had two children Marjorie born 1922 and Kathryn born 1924. Anything would help.! thanks for allowing me to visit and enjoy your Great website. Bruce Woolley
Enjoying your site very much. I ran across William Womack in Brunswick Co....
Brunswick County Deed Book 3, p. 135 (273) William Womack of St. Andrews Parish in Brunswick Co. to his son-in-law Benjamin Sykes of same. 1 Jan 1746. A gift of L30 VA. Wit: Burrell Brown, Timothy Rives, George Rives. Proved 5 Mar 1746. Ster Clack CC.
This is an abstract on p. 17 of Dr. Stephen E. Bradley, Jr.'s Brunswick County, Virginia Deed Books, Volume 2, 1744 - 1755, 1764.
Benjamin Sykes was the son of Richard Sykes d: 1734. I am curious which daughter of William did Benjamin marry? I have found that a Benjamin Sykes died in 1800 in Greensville Co. (from Brunswick), but I have a reference that this Benjamin was from England and in his will, his wife is listed as Alice Wren. I am curious if anyone can help me find further information on this.

Hi! It appears we are distant cousins!
In regard to your posting:
I'm certain there are others more knowledgeable than myself but I believe we are still working with the belief that your William Womack married Rebecca Parker "b. ca 1760/70" per CW. Sorry to say I've never found a bond for William & Rebecca, nor does Rebecca Parker appear to be the sib of Susannah Parker who married Abraham Womack.
Correct me please if this is not the will abstract for Rebecca's father.

1946, attended Little Rock Junior College and was employed with American Air
Lines, Ralston Purina Co., and Cooper Communities at Cherokee Village. He
left Cherokee Village for Fairfield Bay in its infancy. Si started as
salesman and was elevated to Vice President of sales. He retired from
Fairfield Bay as Director of Public Relations. Si was a Charter Member of
Fairfield Bay Rotary Club, former Vice President of the Russellville Jaycees

I'm passing a message along from Cheryl Smaciarz
about her Womack family. They are apparently from Blytheville, which is, if I recall correctly, in Mississippi County, Arkansas
Her grandfather was Limon or Lymon Lincoln Womack and his father was apparently
Charles Bevon Womack. Charles died from the flu epedimic at about 30 yrs. He had a sister named Bess and Kitty and a brother named John. His
wife was Mertlye or Myrtle. I didn't find anyone in the 1910 or 1900 census index who matched, so that's a puzzler to me. The name Charles Bevon or Bevans Womack, vaguely rings a bell. I'm hoping someone here, maybe Sam, recognizes it. Cheryl is supposed to give a little family history thing in school this week. Her family had passed along the story of Michael Womack and the War of 1812, and while they were over in Nashville AR, and certainly ran to Charles as a family name I don't know of a connection there. If you can help her, give her or me a yell. Ann

My gggrandfather was a Civil War Veteran, serving in Kentucky for two years.
Like a bad penny; here I are again. Been gone toooooo long. I've asked our webmaster to correct/update my database entry so I won't be "lost" anymore. Hope to reconnect with the dozen or so "lost" Womack researchers in my 5-6 year old e-mail address book; like back in the days of "Genie" and RSL. TTYL. Tom
Malinda (Matilda?) KENADY left Washington/Baldwin Co AL with husband,
Francis Marion "Frank" WOMACK, and dat, Emily, and son, John Abner, ca
1820-1822 and probably moved to the southeast corner of Hinds? Co MS that
was to become first Copiah Co in 1823 and later Simpson Co in 1824. Frank
married second wife, Anna (Amy) Thornton in Clarke Co Al in 1829 and appears
with her in 1830 census of Simpson County and 1840 census of Smith Co. What
happened to his first wife??
>Pages 183-185 of 1830 Census has Frank and his brother, Richard WOMACK,
Matilda KENADY(head of household) and Robert WARMACK living in relatively
close proximity to General Mushlatubbee (Page 189 Noted: Indian Nation). Is
this Matilda KENADY the missing first wife or is she the mother of Malinda
KENADY? Do they have relatives among the nearby Choctaws.
>The 1840 Census of Simpson Co shows Alex. ACNUEDY (probably Alex. A.
KENADY) and Rhesy KENNEDY living adjacent to W. B. WOMACK and close by
Richard WOMACK and Robert WOMACK, but there is no Matilda KENADY. Is she
now living with Rhesy or Alex? Is this William the older brother of Frank?
Frank WOMACK is now living in Smith Co adjacent to VINZANTs (one of whom
married his dat, Emily) and interestingly close to several THORNTON
families. Did these THORNTONS come to Smith Co after Frank's marriage to
Amy (Anna) or were they already there when Frank met Amy?
>In 1878 John Abner WOMACK packed up his family, including my ggmother,
Mary Cordenia WOMACK, and her husband, Joseph Martin HILL, and my gfather,
Luther HILL, Sr. and moved from Smith Co MS to north central Texas, just
across the river from the Choctaw region of Oklahoma Territory. Did his
mother, Malinda/Matilda?, remove with the Choctaws after the Treaty of
Dancing Rabbit Creek? Was she Choctaw? Did John Abner have first cousins
(children of Richard Mansel or William) among the Choctaws in Oklahoma?
>Any clues would be greatly appreciated.
>Do any of these Womacks appear on the Removal Rolls?
>Thanks in advance.
Tom, for some reason my email program doesn't want to email you - I have NO
idea why - but try dropping a line to email@example.com who is/was researching
Choctaw Canady connections in Kentucky, Missouri, Texas according to Markie's
list of researchers.
Oh, and BTW, thanks to the rest of you for helping Cheryl out. She ended up with enough information to do a nice presentation at school. Ann

Hello, after a long time away. I think y'all can save me a lot of time with a question I have re the Womacks. Does anyone know if some were in Campbell Co., KY before heading on to the midwest? I have found some other lines of mine came through that area & suspect that my line, Green Womack, may have been in that area, also.
You could be right. I went to Lubbock today to the Mormon Church, they have great records on family history. Unfortunately, they didn't have what I needed so they sent me to the Mahon Library and I looked up the Census for 1900 & 1920 and found my granddad and great granddad listed. What does LDS search stand for and where do you look?
Thanks for the help

Hi Everyone, I have Richard Womack I parents as William Womack and Mary Jane Allen, but I saw some information that had a William Womack who married Mary Allen and they had different dates then what I had for my William Womack and Mary Jane Allen, so I thought that maybe I had the wrong parents. But, I have it straight now. Thanks, Dianne
Can't anyone help me out with my query?

Dianne. If you've got it straight please post it and give us the evidence.
I didn't meant that I had evidence, I just meant that I found my notes that I had with William Womack and Mary Jane Allen as parents of Richard Womack I. But, that is just some information that I got from other researchers. I know that there is no proof that they are Richard's parents. In fact, I don't think anyone has found proof of who Richard's parents are, if they have I would like to know who they are. Dianne

and his sister LeDena Faye Womack DOB 10-2-1946. The last contact we had with
