I am looking for any info about my grandparents, Oscar Dee (1888) and Katie Bell Knight (1893) Womack. They lived in Harnett and Sampson counties, NC. They produced 13 children. My great-grandparents were Wesley Green Womack and Mary Bell Knight (1857)on the paternal side and Azuriah David Ezzell (1861) and Addie Bell Duncan (1872) on the maternal side. My father, James Artis Womack (1923) was killed in Lousiville, KY in 1954 when I was 6 months old. I was never told of this side of the family until my father's brother, David, found me in 1973 and introduced me to my brother, Jimmie Dee Womack. The info I have is from a bible that was given to me by my uncle. I want to verify this info. I am very new to the research scene and need help. Cannot even find myself listed.

I would appreciate any information and pedigree, ascending and descending, on a Louis P. Womack. He supposedly was born around 1820 in Georgia and married a Mary Minerva Middleton from Mississippi. Thanks

Hi all,
I'm descended from William Wesley Womack, via his son James Abraham, who was a doctor in Illinois. James had five daughters (Grace, Gert, Gladys, Jess and Gussie). Grace was my great grandmother. I have a lot of photos of that family and I also have photos *which I believe* are of James and his siblings, as wells William Wesley.

I need to find out more about William Wesley and his wife Sarah Farrell (or McFarrell)? Has anyone made much progress on this? I've tried to search the archives, and found some queries, but not much response.

Thanks and have a great day!

Green, Levi & Pernecia WOMACK

I am new to Womack research and am enjoying WGN!

Here is what little I know of Green, Levi & Pernecia WOMACK.

The name Green WOMACK appears as one of the witnesses to the will of John BOULDEN of Cave-in-Rock Twp., Gallatin Co., IL, along with William C. BLAKELY. It was dated 3 Oct 1830.

Pernecia WAMACK is mentioned in the will of William M. FORD, written and recorded in 1832 in Livingston Co. KY. The will was witnessed by Levy WOMACK.

William BLAKELY’S brother, Peleg, worked as an apprentice for Philip FORD, brother of the late William M. FORD, in Livingston Co., KY in 1833.

I believe that Pernecia WAMACK may have married William C. BLAKELY sometime before 1837. William C. BLAKELY was a resident of Cave-in-Rock Twp., Gallatin (later Hardin Co.) IL. According to the 1840 Hardin County, IL census, his wife, known to the family as “Perneacy”, was born between 1810 and 1820.

Both Green WARMACK and Rebecca WAMMACK are shown on the 1830 Gallatin Co., Census as having girls Pernecia’s age in their households.

Does anyone know who the parents of Green, Levi and Pernecia WOMACK were?

Thank you very much for any information at all,

I am a descendent of William Womack whose son was Richard Womack 1. I have traced that lineage down to my grandfather which I am excited about. I have dates, places, etc. but would like some personal history of them. How do I find this kind of info? I do have limited information on Richard Womack 1...that he purchased land in Henrico Co., VA and was killed by Indians at a young age...but would love to find out personal facts and history also.. Thanks to anyone who can help with websites or even historical society addresses/

To Ordmins@aol.com:

I'm puzzled re Pernecia Womack. Who is she? Green had a daughter, Letecia/Luticia and no sister (that I know of) named Pernecia. I am no expert on Green and his family, so would appreciate a little fill in. Thanks.

Well, I don't really know who is who in that Green/Levi family because there are lots of them, but if we are talking about the family of William Womack and Rebecca Parker - they had at least 6 children, including a kid Green b. 1788 and a kid Levi b. ca 1810 or so. This family ended up in Illinois. Their brother Joseph who m. Margaret Morris and was b. ca. 1807 or so had a daughter named (more or less) Parneice. Now, that said, years ago, I knew someone else hunting a completely DIFFERENT Perniece Womack, and I've got another one named Perneice whose husband was Kinchen Paul (whose mother was a Womack) - so it's not a completely unique name. If the family used it once, I'm sure they saved the name up for another kid in the family. So, just because Joseph apparently had a kid Perniece, doesn't mean one of his brothers didn't have one too.

Dear Ann and Carolyn,

I really appreciate your interest in PERNECIA WOMACK and your help! Carolyn, thanks so much for the insight into the name Parneice or Perniece, and the encouragement that somehow I might yet be able to connect her to the family of William and Rebecca! The first thing I thought when I began this research was how uncommon her name seemed.

I didn’t mention this in my query, but William C. BLAKELY’s third wife, who he married in 1849, was named Nancy WOMACK. Since my ancestors have often married sisters or cousins in second and third marriages, I wondered if perhaps Perneacy’s maiden name was Womack. There were several names that were connected to the Blakley’s that I was researching, but when I saw the name Pernecia WAMACK in the FORD will, and found the connections between the Blakely’s and the Ford’s, I began to wonder if this Pernecia WAMACK could have been the Perneacy who married Wm. Blakely.

I have very little documented information about Pernecia. The only time I have seen the complete name of Pernecia WAMACK in print was when she was mentioned in the will of William M. FORD, recorded in 1832 in Livingston Co., KY. She was mentioned as having given birth to William FORD’s son, Richard Miles FORD, who was 7 months of age at the time the will was written in Dec. 1831. Since the will was witnessed by Levy WOMACK, I believe that Levy could be somehow related to Pernecia. Since Levi was b. abt. 1810 and Pernecia b. bet. 1810-1820 (bet. 1810-1815 is my guess), I was thinking that they might possibly be siblings, but now that seems very much in doubt. Possibly cousins I wonder??

William BLAKELY lived fairly close to Green WOMACK in 1830 in Cave-in-Rock, IL. On the 1830 census, the oldest male in Green WARMACK‘s household would have been born between 1781 – 1790. Since the Green WAMMOCK on the 1850 Shelby County, IL census was born between 1787-8, I am thinking that this might be the same Green.

William BLAKELY’s brother, Peleg, was employed by William FORD’s brother in Livingston County, so I believe that the WOMACK and BLAKELY families must have traveled often between Cave-in-Rock, Gallatin County, IL and Livingston Co., KY.

My GG Grandmother Perneacy m. Wm. BLAKELY and had the following children, Elizabeth, b. 1837; Ellen, b. 1841; Peleg, b. 1844 and John, b. 1845. William is shown on the 1850 Hardin Co., IL, Census with his wife, Nancy WOMACK, age 18, who he had married within the preceding year. I was unable to find Perneacy on the 1850 census under the name Pernecia or Perneacy Womack or Blakely. I did find Richard M. FORD (Pernecia WAMACK’s son) in the 1850 Livingston Co., KY census in the household of his uncle, Richard MILES (William FORD, Richard’s father, had designated his uncle, Richard MILES, to care for his son, Richard M. FORD, in the event of his death, which did occur in 1832). Shown below Richard FORD’s name on the census was that of Nancy WITMAN (?), age 42, b. in NC. Could this be Perneacy (“Neacy” as the family called her) I wonder? The age fits. As of yet, I have been unable to find a marriage of a Perneacy/Neacy/Nancy WOMACK or BLAKELY to anyone with a name like WITMAN.

Of course, it's possible that Perneacy Blakely passed away bef. 1850. It's probably unlikely that she was the same person as Pernecia Wamack, but this is one more avenue to pursue in the search for my GG grandmother's maiden name, and I really appreciate your help!

This letter is long and rambling and I apologize. As you can see, the things I don’t know about this mysterious “Pernecia WAMACK” by far exceed the things I do know!

Thank you both so much for your input! Any ideas or suggestions for further research would be greatly appreciated!

Ann, can you tell me the names of the rest of William and Rebecca WOMACK’s children?

Thank you all so much!

Well, let me give the William and Rebecca Parker Womack family a try, although I'm sure there are others who know them better. I just know them from having looked up a couple of them for someone in the.....gee, 1860 census or something.
Anyway, William Womack was b. ca 1757 and d. sometime after 1820 in IL
Rebecca Parker was b. ca 1760/70
children
Green b. 1788 d. 1872
William b. abt 1790/1800
Obediah b. abt 1800/10
Joseph b. ca 1807
Clement b. 1808 d. 1868
Levi Preston b. abt 1810

The family variously lived in IL and MO, Joseph and Clement, I think ended up in Taney Co., MO before 1840 - although I'd have to check. Now, my guess here without looking up the census schedules to see if any other children show up, is that there were more children.

Dear Ann and Carolyn,

Ann, thank you so much for the names of William and Rebecca Parker Womack’s children! I really appreciate this!

On the 1830 Gallatin County Census, Page 262 , line 340,
http://www.rootsweb.com/~ilgalla2/census/1830-0250.txt
The household of WOMMACK, Rebecca, Shawneetown, consisted of:
1 male age 05 to 09, born between 1821 - 1825
1 male age 15 to 19, born between 1811 - 1815
1 male age 20 to 29, born between 1801 – 1810
1 male age 30 to 39, born between 1791 – 1800 (William?)
1 female age 15 to 19, born between 1811 – 1815
1 female age 60 to 69, born between 1761 – 1770

Is it known if Levi was still living at home at this time?

Surely the youngest male would be a grandson? I also wonder the same thing about the male and female b. bet. 1811-1815, though they could be her and William’s children I guess.

Green was living on his own in 1830
Page 263 Line, 360, Household of WARMACK, Green
1 male age 00 to 04, born between 1826 - 1830
1 male age 05 to 09, born between 1821 - 1825
1 male age 10 to 14, born between 1816 - 1820
1 male age 40 to 49, born between 1781 – 1790
2 females age 05 to 09, born between 1821 - 1825
1 female age 15 to 19, born between 1811 - 1815 (Letecia/Luticia?)
1 female age 30 to 39, born between 1791 – 1800

When I copied this I thought the girls in both Womack households b. bet. 1811-1815 were possibilities for Pernecia, but now I think that only would apply to the girl living in Rebecca’s household in light of what Carolyn has shared.

Carolyn, can you post the names of Green Womack’s children?

Thank you both so much!!

Elizabeth

Brenda, The family you are looking for is the very family being discussed right now, William and Rebecca. Your Alexander Womack, is the son of Jacob
and his 2nd spouse Melissa Jane Althiser. This family has been a tough one to sort our, alot of circumstantial evidence. but a lack of hard evidence, This Jacob, is believed to be the son of Green, son of William and Rebecca. Besides those having this discussion, you may want to get in touch with Judy Campbell at nelle@socket.net also.

Sometime ago, Roger and I discussed a Paul Womack having played fiddle on the
Grand Ole Opry - and that I had heard, probably a rumor, that he had made a fiddle out of glued together matchsticks -

However, I have a request from a person in England whose father (not a Womack) did just that two fiddles, a guitar and other instruments--a total of 23 in all.

He was a merchant seaman on an American ship in the 1930's - almost the same time frame we need for Paul. His son read of the possibility that Paul had done the same - and would like to know if we can substantiate that rumor--

So, if any of you out there know anyting about it; please funnel it to me at my E mail addy above - I will gladly share the final outcome with all later..
Thanks

Seeking whatever info you might impart relating to marriages of Cantrell, Womack and Green of Warren Co. Tn. in late 1700's thru 1800's. Have lost most info I had taken from (ORIGIONAL?)

Something I recently learned, and it works!!
Have you ever brought up a large FTM file and it take forever to load and then do its thing when you close it?

Did you know that every time you merge that you leave empty space in the FTM file and on your harddrive? Also when moving Photos around in the scrapbook will leave a blank that takes up space -

To alleviate this, bring up a large FTM file (you may want to ensure it is backed up); note the size soyou can see how much you are saving, then hit the following on your keyboard and sit back and relax ctrl-alt-c
this is all explained in the FTM help files--sometimes it pays to read them I guess!!

I dropped my largest FTM file from 37.8 mb to 9.6 and another from 28mbor so to around 11mb - did not lose any data-they both load and close faster.

The purpose for my message is to ask for help from anyone anywhere out there who could possibly remember anything about my grandfather Pinkney Abram or Abraham Womack who came to the Midwest, bringing with him a little girl riding horseback. I do not know anything concrete about him, except that he came to Mississippi with the little girl and married my grandmother, Hattie Smith, daughter of James Monroe Smith and Mary Jane (Mollie) Carter.They had according to what I have been toldabout 12 children. I understand that he was half Indian blood, but I'm not sure which tribe, maybe Choctow. I have been told they traveled by wagon train in groups of families. If you can help me in any way I will be most grateful. Vivian Stinson Carraway

FYI. Anyone who can access Ancestry.com may want to check out the minutes of the Caney Fork Baptist Church which I believe is in their database. The church was located in Warren Co., TN. I know the minutes cover the 1830's and earlier. I also know a James Womack is mentioned with regard to an arguement he had with William Dunham, and their may be more Womacks to be found there. I've never subscribed because I don't like to pay for a lot of stuff I can't use. I believe the minutes are also on microfilm available from the TN state archives.

Re. William and Rebecca Parker Womack who appear in some of the earlier messages. I believe that William died before 1820 because Rebecca is shown as the head-of-household in the 1820 census. In the 1818 Illinois state census a William is the head-of-household, but this could be William Jr. This family is difficult to sort out because most of the info found on this family requires making some assumptions which may not be true. I think I'm descended from William and Rebecca through Levi who married Polly Ann Baker in Shelby Co., IL 11/11/1834, But I'm not sure whether Levi was a son or a grandson of William and Rebecca. Levi was born between 1810 and 1820 (probably before 1815)in TN, which would have been toward the end of Rebecca's child bearing years. I am puzzled by the two William Womacks found in the 1840 Shelby Co., IL census. I'm pretty sure the youngest is the son of Green Womack, but the other was born between 1790 and 1800 and could be Green's brother and father of Levi. I'm pretty sure that Levi's father was named William. Levi's oldest son was named Joseph William, most likely after his two grandfathers Joseph Baker and William Womack. There was also a Ben Womack, born about after 1800, who I believe was also Green's brother. Ben was in Gallatin Co., IL in 1820 where he was enumerated with only one female in household, in the census on the same page as Green and Rebecca, and he was in Shelby Co in 1830 and 1840. There were two other Womacks in Shelby County, IL who I can't find a family for; Eliza Josephine Womack, born about 1817 in either TN or AK, who married Joseph Baker Jr. (Levi's brother-in-law)in 1834, and Thomas Townsend Womack born about 1820. Any info that could help put this family in perspective would be deeply appreciated.

Thomas Townsend Womack, I have as the son of William Womack and Didama Webb, dau of Jesse Webb sp Didamia Townsend. William was the son of Abner, son of Thomas Womack and Louvisa Rice. The will I posted before was attached to this William, however I don't know why because it don't seem to fit this family.
Eliza Josephine who married Joseph Baker is believed to be a daughter of William and Rebecca by some family members. I've not seen anything to support this. This is interesting, everytime I think I'm closing in on Thomas and Louvisa, Thomas' descendants ends up with another bunch of Womacks.
