Hi All! Just thought I'd note that our friends at the Library of VA have been adding more fun databases to their site.
Under the digital library stuff they have the new Historical Inventory. This is actually an index to the stuff gathered by the WPA. The photos they have are on-line, the rest is not. If you type in Womack, you get about 20 hits, including a bunch of houses and cemetery inventories. So, if one was going to drift by the library, those cemetery inventories might be quite useful.
Still no earlier hits on the ungraded Land Records database, though.
I hope you are all well - Ann

I am looking for a Martha Womack, born in 1835, I believe in GA. She went on to marry a Mr. Conner and have two children, Willis B. Conner (1860) and a daughter, Laura, who died before reaching adulthood. Martha Womack Conner, with husband and children, moved to FL in the 1860's. Mr. Conner and friends went on a hunting/fishing trip along the Peace River and were never heard from again.
I would appreciate any information anyone has on this. I am especially looking for the first name of Mr. Conner. Thanks so much, Rachel Lloyd

Looking for information on my wife's family. My MIL is Betty JoAnn Womack nee Schones. She was born to William Harrison Womack (b. Aug. 18, 1891--we believe in N.Carolina--and he died 15 Mar 1960 in Canute, OK). William Harrison married Lucy Lee Norman (b. 1 June 1894 in N.C., died 17 Nov 1974 in Canute, OK). They were married in 1910 in Arkansas. Have some information on the Norman family--but haven't found anything on William Harrison's family. Appreciate any information you can help with...

That William Harrison Womack that married Harriet Eulene Smith was the son of Joel W. I have 7 William Harrison Womack's in my database. William H. Womack that married Lucy Norman I have as the son of Levi P.Womack, born TN., who married Endora Moore.
Also William H. Womack, sp Lucy Norman,I have his middle name as Hamilton not Harrison. There was also another Levi P. Womack b 1860 in Logan Co., AR. sp Mary E. One of them is the son of that Josiah CC Womack. This line is confusing. I've wondered if those Levi's are one and the same. They lived right by each other. One Levi is listed as senior on Sams 1900 AR.,census, but he didnt have a son that was a junior that I know of and the other Levi P is the same age so he's not his junior. If anyone else wants to jump in, please do.

Retaliation is necessary - but prevention is just as necessary - we must search out and destroy all the terrorist cells we can find in America; letting them know there is no place to hide. It is ironic they can destroy innocents; yet when we do the same we are the big bad guy....It is time that America stopped the "turn the other cheek" and start slapping back. THE EAGLE MUST AWAKEN AND FLY WITH OPEN TALONS!!!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, America has been the nice guy too long, its time we change the way we hand out justice to the terrorist of the world and the countries that harbor them. Justice should be swift and final as these people deserve the same rights as those who died,none. The American people have awakened to the realization that no one is safe from acts of terrorist who believe they are killing innocent people in the name of their God.
Retaliate America, forget about collaterial damage just once and the rest of the world will think twice about harboring terrorist cells within their borders.
Let us mourn our lost loved ones, remembering they are in a better place, a place with no pain and sorrow only love, joy, and peace.

I agree with the tighter airport secruity. My question is why are the still allowing carry on baggage?


Friday, September 14, 2001 at 19:32:13 (PDT)

now let the eagle sharpen its talons and fly

its ever watchful eye searching for the prey it knows will ease
some of the pain

and when that eagle finds its prey, it will swoop down
fiercely and no one can stop its flight

let the world know the eagle has not only landed,
but has flown again!

I hope someone here can help me. I am helping my roommate try to find a friend of his named Richard Womack who lives in New York. We have been trying to contact him since the WTC attack, but have been unsuccessful so far. He may have worked at the WTC at one time, but we have conflicting information on whether he may have been there last Tuesday.

Richard (Rick or Rickey) previously lived in Austin, Texas, and attended Westlake Highschool there in the late 1980s. He had been living in NYC for several years now.

If anyone knows how to contact Rick, will you please forward this message to him? Please ask him to contact Kevin Whiteley at or myself at Alternatively, if anyone has a lead we can follow, please email one of us.

We would appreciate any help that anyone has to offer. Our thoughts are with everyone during these difficult days.

Thanks in advance,
Daniel Lestarjette & Kevin Kyle Whiteley

When I posted the message today on WGN, it occured to me that I had never informed y'all of my loss July 12, 2000. Jack and I were in a terrible auto accident, July 11, 2000. just out of Kansas City, MO. We were heading out west with our RV for two months. We were hit from behind by a driver that fell asleep at the wheel. I survived but Jack was pronounced dead on the 12th. We had been married just short of 42 years, so this has been a year with lots of ups and downs. I am posting his obituary for any of those that have my information in your database.

Born in Montgomery, AL, January 20, 1935, Powell moved to Orlando in 1948 He was a graduate of Edgewater High School and received scholastic and baseball scholarships to Rollins College, where he earned a bachelor of arts degree in 1957.

He later served in the Army.

In 1959, he became a certified public accountant and through the 1960s he was a partner with Powell Barker CPA, which later merged with Seidman & Seidman.

In 1974, Powell served on Vice President Gerald Ford's advance team, traveling around the country to prepare for the vice president's visits.

During the 1980s, he was a local managing partner for the international firm BDO Seidman LLP.

Powell was on the board of directors for the Orlando Chamber of Commerce and was a member of the University Club and the Country Club of Orlando.

In 1990, he retired and moved to Lake Lure, where just seven years later he served as mayor.

Survivors include: wife of 41 years, Carolyn; daughter, Linda Lee Mitchell, Charlotte, N. C.; sister, Margaret P. Foss, Orlando; brothers, James W. Powell, Orlando, George L. Powell, Lake Mary; and one grandson.

A memorial service will be held 10:30 a. m., Monday, July 24th at the Chimney Rock Baptist Church in Lake Lure, NC.

Has anyone else on the board received an email no text ,with attachments, from David Dunn? It is dated 12-22-01. With all the virus's I'm wry about opening it, tho it scans ok.
Sorry David but better safe than sorry.

Tuesday, September 25, 2001 at 05:25:55 (PDT)

The date is a future date etc and unless David confirms it; and he is either in England or in Tucson as he has a brother bad ill there - I would delete it!
David is rather good putting subjects on his mail..

With all the morons writing viruses nowdays it is wise to install a good anti-virus program on your computer. Norton Anti-virus is a good one , it runs in the background and automaticly scans your PC weekly, more often if you want. It has a live update that updates the virus definitions while you are online. You can run update anytime. The software is very inexpensive and to re-new eack year cost about 3.50. I have used this for two years now and it has never let one through. Mc Afee anti-virus is also a good one and it too has live update. The best way to prevent a virus is to never open an attachment but you have to doing genealogy. NEVER open an attachment with an .EXE extension unless you are expecting it and you have run a virus scan on it. The latest Virus out has a WTC.EXE extension and plays on the Terroist attact. The subject line is "Peace between America and Islam" DON'T open it as it will overwrite your registery files. This is a low-risk virus and does not kill your hard drive. Never the less any virus is not easy to get rid of for the average user. No matter what anti-virus program you use it is worthless if it is not updated almost daily. There are about 200 new viruses weekly, most never get through the server and your ISP but some do. Take care.

This was sent to me by a lady.

Now I have an answer from those who ask me why am I so interesting in the genealogy. They tell me not to waste time on the past but I see it as finding out who I am and why I am the way I am.
I am a story teller.
I want my family to know where they came from and why.
Jane Foley
Cornelius, NC

"My feelings are in each family there is one who seems called to find the ancestors.
To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve.
To me, doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts but, instead, breathing life into all who have gone before.
We are the story tellers of the tribe. All tribes have one.We have been called as it were by our genes.
Those who have gone before cry out to us:
Tell our story.
So, we do.
In finding them, we somehow find ourselves.
How many graves have I stood before now and cried? I have lost count. How many times have I told the ancestors you have a wonderful family you would be proud of us?
How many times have I walked up to a grave and felt somehow there was love there for me? I cannot say.
It goes beyond just documenting facts. It goes to who am I and why do I do the things I do?
It goes to seeing a cemetery about to be lost forever to weeds and indifference and saying I can't let this happen.

The bones here are bones of my bone and flesh of my flesh.
It goes to doing something about it.
It goes to pride in what our ancestors were about to accomplish.
How they contributed to what we are today.
It goes to respecting their hardships and losses, their never giving in or giving up, their resoluteness to go on and build a life for their family.
It goes to deep pride that they fought to make and keep us a Nation.
It goes to a deep and immense understanding that they were doing it for us.
That we might be born who we are. That we might remember them.
And So We Do!
With love and caring and scribing each fact of there existence, because we are them and they are us.
So, as a scribe called, I tell the story of my family.
It is up to that one called in the next generation to answer the call and take their place in the long line of family storytellers.
That, is why I do my family genealogy, and that is what calls those young and old to step up and put flesh on the bones.


This was sent to me and I wanted to share it with you all. I think it is really good, wish I had thought of it.
