JWomack@sperry.k12.ok.us

I am not sure how to go about posting this message, but here we go. My great grandfather's name was James Issac Womack. I think (according to my grand father) that my great great grandfather's name was Andrew. James Issac was from Tenn., but moved to Oklahoma in the earle 1900's. What I would like to have is a direct line all the way back as far as possible. I have found the WGN king of hard to read and follow. Way too many abbreviations for my simple mind. Is there anyone who is able to help. I am very proud of my name (as most Womacks are) and would like to know as much about it as possible. I would appreciate the help.

James, I believe James Isaac Womack's , father was Andrew J. from Cannon Co., TN. Andrew was the son of James Jasper Womack, sp Julie Ann Parker. The problem with this line is it is a Thomas Womack sp Louvisa Rice line and no one to date has shown any proof who Thomas Womack's parent were. I have no doubt he is connected to the main branch because of his association with other Womacks and his children married into other Womack lines that we do know. Glad to have you on board and hopefully you can help us sort this one out.

Thank you Roger for the info. James Jasper.... What a cool name. I may have to recycle that one so we can really confuse the later generations. I am assuming that James Jasper's dad was Thomas. Is that correct? Thanks for the help. By the way... if your home page is the one called Womack Family News.... WOW!!! What a site. Oh yeah... I loved Porky's! Thanks again!

Hi all,
I was digging through the VA land patents on the LVA site. I found the May 1673 grant to Richard Womack and James Akin. Just out of curiosity, I looked for other patents granted to James Akin. There is one earlier to James Akin on 20 Octber 1665. Take a look at it.

Some items I noticed between these two patents:

1) The 1665 patent starts at "a White Oak at the head of Thomas Webb's land". The 1673 patent starts at "a White Oak at the head of Thomas Well's land". I think one of these is a mis-transcription and it is either Webb or Well's in both place. It is kind of hard to tell from the digital copy.

2) Both of the patents are North of the Appamattock River, and have the exact same pole measurements for the first 4 lines: 160 poles North, 250 poles West, 160 poles South, 250 poles East. The 1673 patent has more measurements after that, which I cannot follow well on the digital copy.

If you assume that Webb/Well is the same guy, these patents are for the exact same patch of land, pretty much. Why would Akin be compelled to re-patent land he was already granted? Was he unable to improve it in the required time and his grant was about to run out? So, he partnered with Richard Womack to re-patent it? I don't know what it means, but I find it interesting. Does anyone have a decent transcription of the May 1673 patent? I would not trust myself with the digital version.

-Mark

WOMACK, 1830s & 1840s, Knoxville, TN

I am specifically looking for info about a Mary Womack who married Jeremiah Journigan/Jarnigan. They were reared and married near Knoxville. Their three children were Monroe, William A., and Charles Alexander b. Sept. 4, 1860 in Webster Co., MO.

This family first moved west to MO and in the spring of 1861 they left for California supposedly for two reasons: gold and to escape the Civil War. They were in a wagon train of 125 wagons out of St. Joseph, MO. The father, Jeremiah, drove a 4-yoke team and the mother agreed to cook for eight men.

Jeremiah died near Mud Springs, NV and was buried there. No record. This probably was on the Lassen Trail. The mother, Mary Womack, continued on to Susanville, CA with another wagon train. It took 6 months to make the trip. The littlest son, Charles Alexander, was 6 months old when they left for CA, so he was 1 year old when they arrived in Susanville. His mother had little money, so ran a boarding house and cooked for the miners. She later married again... a man named Jonathan Thoroughman (later changed to Thurman) and had mroe children.

Does anyone recognize any of these names? Appreciate any help!

To those interested, I found a trascription of the May 1673 patent. William Perry Johnson of the Womack Family Association provided this for the December 1957 Womack Genealogy newsletter (there are transcriptions of many other patents too, see link above.):

To all &c whereas &c now know yee that I ye sd Sr Wm Berkeley Knt &c give & grant unto James Akin & Richd. Womack 335 acres of land in Henrico Coty. on ye north side of Appamattock River beginning at a wt. oake being a corner(?) tree at ye head of Tho. Wells his land, extending into ye woods N 160 po. to fflintons River then W 250 po. S 160 po. E 250 po. then at the heads 106 po. N W by W 160 po. to a small slash running into fflintons S S W 160 po. E 116 po. N 60 po. to the place afore mentioned, 250 acres of ye sd land being formerly granted to ye sd James Akin by Patt. dated 20th of Octobr 1665 the remainder being 85 acres due to ye sd James Akin, & Richd. Womack by & for ye transortacon of 2 psons into this Collonny to have & to hold &c to be held &c yielding &c provided & Dated this 26th of May 1673. [Names of persons transported:] Phillip Childers, Anne Dally.

I don't know what the n/nw s/sw parts are since the first 4 measurement seem to form a perfect rectangle. But I still think the patents are for the same piece of land. Still puzzled as to why James Akin would need to do this. I'm going to post a message on the VA-Southside email list to see if anyone else has an idea. Let you know the outcome.

Duh. Guess I should have read the 1673 transcription closer, to wit:

"...250 acres of ye sd land being formerly granted to ye sd James Akin by Patt. dated 20th of Octobr 1665 the remainder being 85 acres due to ye sd James Akin, & Richd. Womack by & for ye transortacon of 2 psons into this Collonny..."

So, duh, yeah, the original 1665 patent is included in the 1673 patent, and it even says so. I'll look at this a bit more to see if there might be some clues as to why James Akin did this re-patent with Richard Womack. Maybe he was going to have Richard improve the land and threw in the extra 85 acres as his payment? There has to be a clue here for a knowledgeable patent person.

I can only claim delerium due to sickness (from a cold, not a softening of the brain) that I did not see the obvious bit of info in the 1673 patent before posting it in my last message. Should have engaged the brain before engaging the fingers at the keyboard and mouse.

You may have noticed that the WGN home page changed format slightly. Not much, but some. We are now listing a selection of the various feature and source articles, and we will rotate the selection every now and then. I have also updated the complete list of feature articles, and I have to apologize to some of the great folks that submitted articles and then they didn't get linked properly. I apologize; it won't happen again. So, check out the links. You may discover something you didn't know before, or at least be entertained.

I will be doing a similar update to the source articles as well.

I don't know if anyone else is following the World Series, but I get a kick everytime the announcers mention Tony Womack, shortstop for the AZ Diamondbacks. Go Diamondbacks!

It would be interesting to research Tony's family history to see where it goes. I did glean his birthdate from the MSN site that has a short excerpt of his baseball talents (see above link). September 25, 1969, Danville, VA. I don't know if we can do much with it, it being so recent, and none of us directly related (the VA BVS is kind of strict about giving out info to non-family related folks).

If anyone has any ideas of where to go from here, let me know. I don't want to break any privacy laws or anything, just interested. On a baseball related note, I have been told that there was a Womack that played for the Yankee's some time ago. Don't remember the full name this moment.

In the process of canceling my AOL account (that I haven't used in a gazillion years), I was cleaning off some old WGN stuff. I ran across the old vital records pages, and to my surprise, found that they were still linked to the main home page. Folks have been posting queries and info there. I thought we had done away with them in favor of the message page, but I guess I missed it in the neglect.

So, I will be reposting the items for everyone to see here on the message page.

I will be removing the link from the main home page, and we will resurrect the vital info pages at some point. There is some neat information that people have shared.

By the way people frequently patented the same land twice. I don't know why.

I am doing research on my Womack connection. I am wondering if anyone knew of William R. Womack, he was born in 1807 in North Carolina. His second marriage to Hannah produced my GGGrandmother, Mayette Jane Womack. She was born in 1852, in Missouri and passed in 1933. My Grandmother tells me she was of Cherokee descent. If anyone can support this, please let me know. If you have any info on William I wuld appreciate it also. thank you, Lisa

dadunn@terranova.net

Sam. Thanks for the question. I believe I've covered this in the past, but it's worth repeating. The answer is I've tried to see those references. Two, Stull and Stiles, I cannot find, either by author, title, or subject, in the catalogs of: the Library of Congress, the Family History Library, the DAR Library, the Allen County Public Library, the library of the New England Historical and Genealogical Society, and the library of the National Genealogical Society. I conclude that they do not exist. The third, Thomas, appears in the catalog of the LOC but the book has disappeared from the library. Without checking my records, at least one of the sources for these bogus references is a contribution by someone in one of the old Womack Family periodicals. That source also was one which cited the famous "XVII Cent. Applic" or something like that which I'll bet a doughnut the person citing had no clue what it meant. As always, happy to be shown to be wrong.

Now then. More on all known records of Accomack VA of the time. Have done all but two films (on back order). No Womacks or conceivable variants. Have ordered all Northampton County records on basis part of the time Accomack was Northampton. But will bet another doughnut: there will be no Womacks. To repeat another posting: supposedly Henry and Phoebe were in Middlesex MA before Accomack but I spent days going through the Birth/Marriage/Death records of all Middlesex towns with same result. No Womacks. I'll bet a dozen doughnuts this time: this whole family, at least in MA and the Delmarva peninsula, is a fabrication.

Have you looked in Copiah Co MS? That is where Patience married a Henry spelled Muffett in 1824 -- Her name was spelled Womack on the marriage record.
Because of the similarity in Henry's name and her first - believe this to be them... go to my web page and click in on Womack Wonderings then on Georgia and Mississippi Womacks...

Roger, et. al:

I have pulled this information because I have been searching for Mary E. Womack
the "widow" of Tignal Archer Womack (son of Dick and Harriet Womack of Carter County, KY.) At the time of this census, Archie/TA and Mary's daugher Jesten (Livonia Jesten Womack was leaving in Carter County with Dick and Harriet. She was just 15 and had ridden on horseback from VA to KY to find her grandparents.
TA/Archie had disappeared during the Civil War and was presumed dead (found to have simply begun a new life with another wife & kids in LA and TX).

Do any of you know if the Mary E in this household could be my Mary E. (Moore) Womack? The age is off a little...but she is the only Mary E. I can find in the 1880 Census who looks like a possible match. And, does anyone know the relationship between CW Womack and Dick Womack's family. I'm thinking that he may have been a nephew or a close cousin. It seems like 15 yr old Jessie wouldn't have ridden from VA to KY alone...Could another Womack have escorted her?

I'd appreciate any insights. Here is the info Roger posted on this site (Thanks Roger!)

Got a couple of queries that have drifted my way in the last week or so.
1) Anyone have any ideas about Jesse Womack, the brother of Indian Abe Womack? I've got zippo on him, although it's possible that the second family I have for Jesse son of Mansel has gotten confused with this Jesse (hard to say, as the wife Jane Lewis Melvin Womack seems to be related to all the other Lewis people who married into the Mansel family).

and the related question
2)any ideas of what happened to Jesse and William, Mansel's half brothers? Last heard from in GA when they were minors in 1797 at the probating of their father's estate. I don't think they were the ones marrying in the 1830s in GA, they would have been in their 30s or 40s at that point.

I am trying to identify the relationship between three Womacks who lived in Chatham County, NC in the early-and mid-1800's and married women in the Taylor fmaily.
GREEN WOMACK(b. Nov 12, 1782, d July 23, 1856) was married first to Mary Walker Taylor(m Mar 19, 1817) and second to Ann McBryde (m Mar 2, 1825). Mary Walker Taylor (b Feb 1 1799, d Apr 20, 1823)had children Mary, who married Rev. Dr. Jones, a Methodist minister and James (Dr. James Womack). Mary Walker Taylor was the daughter of James Taylor (d Feb 24, 1830) and second wife Mary Lucas(b Aug 19, 1776, m Apr 30 1795, d Jan 15, 1860)
JUDGE THOMAS B. WOMACK married Susie Taylor. Susie Taylor(b. 1865 d Oct 4 1906) was the daughter of Cpt. John Wesley Taylor and Sarah Ann McClennehan (m. Nov 27 1854 and had 18 children). Sarah Ann McClennahan was b Feb 16, 1837 and d Dec 24, 1878.
Susie Taylor also had a niece who married a "JUDGE T. B. WOMACK". Susie's brother Philip, who married Jennie Poe had six children, one of whom was Carried (an unusual name, so I wonder if my info has a typo and it should be Carrie. "Carried" was married twice, first to Judge T. B. Womack and second to a Mr Roper (In 1939 they lived in Petersbury, Va.)
So...can someone tell me how these three Womacks are related? I suspect that the judges may be father and son, but can find no proof of that idea.
Thanks for any help you may be able to give!

My grandfather, Edgar Allen Hawk, came to Wash. D.C. from Nashville TN (?) shortly before the turn of the 20th cen. His mom's name was Womack. He came with 3 siblings: Rush, Etta, and William. 'Went to work for the old Times Newspaper. Lived in Mrs. Toones Boarding House in S.W. Washington. He met my grandmother, Marie Theresa Hutton, who lived with her family down the street.

My gran was born in 1883, his birthdate would've been a few years before that. We'll get more information but for now- anyone have any information on Gr. Grandmother Womack?

Thanks, Barb

Hi All,

According to my father, his maternal grandmother was named Nancy Arphelia Wammock or Wammack, who married Julius Andrew Rhoden in Richmond Co. GA about 1894. He remembers having uncles named Eli, Barry, Harris, George, Tom, and John. Looking at census records, I found:


1880 Census - Appling Co. GA

p. 15b, Dist. 442
James Wannock, 48, Farmer, GA-GA-GA
Margreat, 44, Keeping House
Francis (m), 23, Works on Farm
Eli, 21, "
Mary J., 15
Ardelia (f), 10
Olief L., 8
Burnell, 11, Works on Farm


I _believe_ this is her family - at least they're in the right place and the names are close enough.

Does James Wammock or Wammack, born about 1832 in Georgia ring a bell with anyone?

Thanks,
Jeffrey


PS Roger - it looks like you need to broaden your search of the 1880 census to include Wannock, Warnock, and any other way of mangling the name you can think of. ;)

Daniel Womack
daniel@loseyouridentity.com

I've been searching and recording, and have suffered with Excel and Word long enough. I'm now willing to spend money on a top notch Genealogy/Family Tree Program for my PC at home. I was hoping I could get some suggestions on what to look for and what programs are most popular with serious researchers. Thank you in advance for any help I can get.

Daniel, asking about one's favorite genealogy program is a little like asking about one's favorite operating system - it tends to start flame wars! The key thing to do is make sure that it has GEDCOM import and export ability. That will allow you to exchange files with relatives with some ease. Now, as to which is the best, alot depends on what operating system you have (well, obviously!) I trust from seeing that you use Excel that you don't have a Mac or Linux box, but a PC. There are quite a few programs around, for the PC - PAF, FamilyTreeMaker, TheMasterGenealogist (TMG), Generations, and a bunch of others. Personally I use Brother's Keeper. What?!? Yes, I started back with these programs back in the days when PCs ran DOS and BK was a dominate program. It now runs under Windows, and is still shareware, and John Steed, the author is still quite a nice person to deal with. It is limited compared to some of the others that are new and native Windows instead of ported programs. I may switch one of these days to one of the others.

PAF aka Personal Ancestral File, is a) free b) done by the LDS church library and c) has more tools than I really need and since I don't want to submit anything to the LDS temple, I don't really care about that.
http://www.ldscatalog.com/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/ProductDisplay?prrfnbr=369179&prmenbr=1402&CGRY_NUM=373032&RowStart=1&LocCode=FH

(all on one line) will get you the link to the program and a description.

FamilyTreeMaker is a nice program, a tad clunky for my tastes design-wise. It comes in various flavors http://www.genealogy.com will get you the main page with links to it. You can also buy it at virtually ANY computer store on-line - it is probably the most available program. Some of it's varieties come with data CD-ROMs that may well be helpful depending on how far along your research already is.

TMG is made by by Wholly Genes (www.whollygenes.com)and also comes in a couple of versions - standard and gold I think. It's also fairly available at stores. I know a couple of professional genealogists who greatly prefer TMG, so I will probably look at it at upgrade time, in part it'll read my native BK files without having to trot through a GEDCOM transfer.

Generations I don't know much about, sadly.

Anyway, if you hit the various sites, many of them have screen shots and demos that you can look at, then shop for price - which vary wildly. I've seen slightly older editions of the programs going for shipping on the discount sites, then enabling you to use the free or cheap upgrade price for the latest version. But, then I'm notoriously cheap. Happy Shopping.

i found this site while searching for information about my grandmother for a geneology project. her name was clarabelle mosby and was the neice of john s. mosby. she married benjamin lewis johnson and had a son andrew mosby johnson. i would appreciate if anyone has any information or source that i can go to to email me. thank you very much. rakfet johnson

Rakefet, assuming we are talking about John Singleton Mosby the Grey Ghost of the Confederacy - he was b. 1833 d. 1916, and he was the son of Alfred Daniel and Virginia Jackson McLaurine, and from there you can go back about 7 generations of Mosbys in VA. He had somewhere between 7 and 10 sisters and one brother. Now, since your grandmother was named Mosby, I'll assume then, that means her father was supposed to be his brother. That would be William Harrison Mosby b. 1846 - he apparently became a postmaster someplace in VA and died in 1913, and was apparently married twice - once to Lucy Booth and second to Mary Wilson and he did serve as a teenager with the Rangers. Now, while some Mosbys are related to the Womacks, this particular line of Mosbys is more related to the Woodsons as I recall, so I'm trying to recall if I know a Grey Ghost person. Off hand, I can't think of one. You might try Lisa Pender, she was researching this same topic some months ago - she's penderlj@yahoo.com
Or you can try the Mosby Museum, which has a website www.mosbymuseum.org and see if they know - John S did write a memoir, so you'd think that someone would have written the thing down.

Now, that said, it seems to me that your grandmother probably died in VA after 1912, and so probably there is a death certificate for her, and it likely names her parents. Also, it should be fairly simple to find the family in the census in 1870, 1880, 1900

Update on the alleged Henry Womack family of Accomack VA. Am now halfway through the Northampton VA records (Accomack was sometimes Northampton) and not a trace of any Womacks. One more night at my local FHC should seal it. David.

wgnwebmaster@womacknet.com

David, I'm also pretty much of the opinion that the Henry line is bogus. I've loaded a little over 64,000 Womack descendants in my database, thousands of pages and this line consist of about 5 pages. The dates are just to perfect in the 1600's and early 1700's and the only line to present that I have in my database is Eleanor, b. 1710 who married Thomas Weaver b. abt 1705, marriage date November 20, 1731 in Augusta Co., VA. Eleanor was supposedly the dau of Daniel Womack sp Sarah Liston, son of George, son of Henry. I think we are going to find that Eleanor if she existed is in the main Womack line somewhere. I've just never been able to prove who she belonged to.
