Roger, et. al:
I have pulled this information because I have been searching for Mary E.(Moore) 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 daughter 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!)

A couple of people asked me about the reply I made to the question about John
Singleton Mosby. Several people said "wait, I thought that he was descended
from Martha Womack Mosby. I swear it says that in various publications."
Well, actually it does say that in various Womack genealogies (yeah, yeah, I
know) but you'll notice the lines are never followed down to the Grey Ghost.
Well, with the caveat that this is NOT MY LINE and I didn't have time to track down original source material, I checked around - and here's the thing, based on Mosby genealogies. Yes, Martha Womack did marry a John Mosby in 1708 in Richmond VA - this Martha was apparently the daughter of an Abraham. HOWEVER, this John was not the ancestor of John Singleton Mosby.
John S. Mosby's line goes something like - Alfred, John, Daniel M, Poindexter, Benjamin, Benjamin, Edward. Now, the closest connection that I can think of (without actually tracking down all the wives whose names were friendly things like Allen) actually is that the second Benjamin Mosby b. ca 1690 was married to a Woodson, said to be named either Elizabeth or Mary, thought to be the daughter of Joseph Woodson and Susannah Watkins - and that, I'm sure sounds terribly familiar to those researching William Womack who m. Mary C. Woodson.
The John who married Martha Womack's line goes something like this - John, Edward (who m. Sarah Woodson), Richard, Edward.
So, while yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, no, we cannot really claim the Grey Ghost as a Womack.
Ann.....going off away from this friendly venture into VA where Mosbys are pretty thick on the ground and back to the question of who all the Jesse Womacks in AL and GA were.
I am looking for my a persons i care abuts father. I really don't know if i
should most this here but her name is Tisa. Her fathers name is Michael Todd
womack born on may 21, 1963. Any leads would be greatly appreciated as she is 15
now and looking for herself as a person and this includes her father.
That busted me bubble - I thought she married a brother of the guy that was the father or grandad of the "Ghost."
As they say Solches ist Leben...
Chris, I don't know where Michael Todd Womack is but I do have him in my database and have his ancestors back to the 1600's. Get in touch I'll be glad to share with you what I have on this line. Perhaps someone in this line may know something. His father was Clifford Eugene Womack, son of Henry Cecil Womack, son of Jasper Marion Womack, son of Abner Terril Womack, son of William Womack sp sarah McBee, son of William Womack sp Lucinda Womack.
ROGER.....HAVEN'T HEARD FROM YOU IN AWHILE...WAS ANYTHING I SENT YOU HELPFUL?
YOU MENTIONED BEING AT THE VOLD RANCH...ARE YOU IN OUR LINE? I REALLY
APPRECIEATE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE WITH THE WOMACK LINEAGE........IT REALLY OPENED MY EYES, I HAD NO IDEA THERE WERE SO MANY "COUSINS" AROUND...PRAISE GOD!
Sam, yeah, that was kind of a bummer, wasn't it! I did find out neat stuff
about the Mosby's and their impending museum, though. Apparently they throw a
nice annual fundraising Blue and Grey ball over in Warrenton. Actually, after
beating my head with Jesse Womacks for a while, it was nice to do something
fairly clear cut, even if it was to clear up an unfortunate previous error.
Yep twas a bummah!
By the way, any Jacobs you find, anywhere, whilst beating the proverbial bushes for Jesse's; send my way and I will do the same on Jesse's.
I appreciate all this help a bunch it means a great deal to tisa. Looking at
the family geneology Michael had a few siblings Danielle Anne Womack Who married
paul weaver and had a child Jordan Marie Weaver.
Another sibling Lucannia Danielle Womack
I am researching my Crawford ancestry and having no luck at all on trying to
find additional data on Anthony Crawford. So, I am trying the "back
door" approach and trying to find data on some of his daughters which might
Anthony Crawford and family lived in Lincoln Co, KY .. 1809 thru 1857. His daughter, Mary Crawford -bc. 1810, TN mar.c. 1828, TN to Elisha H. WOMACK, bc. 1799, VA. It is known that they had 7 children. [I show additional info ... which may be on this Elisha also ...b. 4 Jul 1789, d. 15 Jul 1878, Moore Co, TN].
I would sure appreciate it if anyone had any info on this couple. Any info on Womacks in the Lincoln and surrounding counties, TN would be a big help.
Thank you. Richard D. Brattin email@example.com
On the quest to clear up the Jesses - anyone know offhand who the Jesse
Womack in Jackson Co., AL in 1850 was? He was 32 - so that would be b. 1818 or
so, there was also a John Womack a few households away, age...heck...23? And a
Rufus who was 19 I think, in the same district. That's a combo that puzzles me,
Jesse, John and Rufus?
If memory serves me, a number of those in Jackson Co were of the Thomas/Louvisa line -- I do know that is where my G-GF went when he left TN - so am assuming he went to cousins there..
Take a look here at another Womack
Thanks Sam! I'm wondering now if these were the children of Josiah and Comfort Womack - Josiah was in Jackson Co., AL in 1840, but seems not to be there in 1850. He was a double Womack, both his parents were Womacks. So, Dr. Wiley, who moved there in around what 1870, would have been his cousin. I'll file them mentally under that group for now! Ann
This is my first time to post on your web site. Didn't catch the name of the person who asked about Tignal Archer Womack in Carter County Kentucky, but I am a descendant of Tignal Womack (m.Nancy Rudder--father Sam Rudder) who sent his son Archer Womack(age 12) from Prince Edward County (Farmville) in Va. to clear land in Carter County with one slave. This Tignal is my third great grandfather. I have the copy of the marriage document of Tignal and Nancy signed in 1795. I don't know if this is the same Tignal--, but it's the only one I have heard of one in Kentucky. I also don't know the proper way to do this here goes:William the Immigrant, Abraham, William I of Goochland,William II of Cumberland, William III (Prince Edward), Tignal, Archer, William Archer, W.Orin, Carl J. (my dad).
Go here and peruse - I just finished my semi annual update on it....
That is interesting on Josiah and Comfort. I've wondered if Josiah CC Womack
in the 1880 Census was one of Josiah and Comforts children also?

Hi Everybody. It's a long time since I have been on here but have been
working on my English Womack's. Have now discovered that a branch left England
in 1911. Was wondering if anyone happened to have the following names in their
WOMACK Walter born 1870 born Cambridge England
WOMACK Eliza J Born 1870
WOMACK Sidney J born 1897 Cambridge England
WOMACK Florence M Born 1901 Cambridge England.
Would love to hear from anyone who has them. Have traced them back quite a few generations.
Dave Maher ( Australia )
Abram J. Womack born November 23, 1814 in Mississippi Territory, now Alabama,
his father, Richard Womack, who was married 2 times, and second, to Sarah Dent.
Richard Womack may have had another son, named Jesse Womack, who is my ancestor.
I am interested in exchanging ideas on this family with anyone who is related.
Hello All! Just wanted to get my new e-mail address on this site. I am still looking for any information on Josiah C.C. Womack my gg Grandfather. He was married to Mary Ann 1st then Nancy Jane 2nd. I have another message posted on here with more info in it, just different e-mail address. Please use the one above, thanks.

Lizzie Womack in Georgia
Can anyone help me?
I have just started me genealogy search for my great-great grandparents.
In reviewing my great grandmothers social security application, I have
the following infomation:
Julia Hudspeth (my great grandmother)
Her Parents are listed on the application as being:
Columbus Hudspeth and Lizzie Womack
In reviewing this website I found Lizzie Womack and C.R. Hudspeth's
marriage in 1870. I am VERY new at this and would appreciate
ANY information you could provide on this family.
Thank you so very much and I look forward to your reply
(my email address: firstname.lastname@example.org)
September/October messages have been moved to the archives.
I posted about a year ago and got a lot of info from Markie and Roger. Just wanted to drop a line and update: Richard Elmo Womack Jr. (of LA) died Dec 2, 2001
I have my ancestor chart on FamilyTreeMaker 7.5. It has over 500 entries and when I print it, it prints on about 60 81/2x11 sheets which then have to be cut, sized and taped together. I am trying to save this chart to a print file and take to a local printer to print on one of their large machines as I want to give several family members copies of it. To date, I have been unsuccessful. I tried the FTM website and their help resources but can't get it to work. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
Steve there are some software that will let you print 8 pages on one 8 1/2 X 11, They may be slective and do less. Some of the more modern printers now use computers instead of offset printing.They perhaps could work off of a CD or a floppy disk backup of your files. I have the same problem with my FTM 9.0.
I forgot to mention the reproduction companies who do blueprints most of them are computerized and have very large printers . Map making companies also can handle computer graphics and have extra large color printers. Your files may also be resized for a smaller print out.
Steve, rather than a tree there is a chart called a Fan Chart that will, in some formats, allow you to show 8 or 9 generations of the ancestor tree on one page. I'm not sure if FTM has that chart in it, though. Similarly, I'm not sure how many generations back you want to go on all lines or just one - the fan works best for filling out all lines.
Am doing research for my late sister. She was married to Wesley Ray Womack.
His father's name was Ira Dapheton/Dapheton Ira "Dick" Womack born in
OK in 1917 and died in Modesto CA. in 1999. I can not get a death cert for him
and Ray does not know anything about his dad. Dick married and divorced Mildred
Olga Ray. Am looking for Dick's parents. I understand that he also has a sister
Joyce. All this info is from Dick's obit.
Any help would be appreciated. I live in Oregon.
The WGN researchers list has been updated. There are now 664 researchers
listed. The researchers that had bad emails from the last time have been
"marked for deletion" and will be deleted in the next update. If your
name is on this list, PLEASE, let us know so we can update your information if
you wish to remain on the WGN researchers list. See link above for list. This
link http://www.womacknet.com/wgndeletion.htm (Marked for deletion) is also on
the WGN Homepage.
Ya got me agin? on the deletion list that is? Dang oughta yak more heah methinks - but I do recommend deletion for anyone that does not make contact within each 30 day period and contribute at least something- controverial? you betchum red ryder!! but...that is life - genealogy aint no democracy!!
I'm not sure what you mean. You are not listed on the deletion list, but it looks like your email address may be out of date in the main listings.
Researchers are put on this list when they become "lost" to us, meaning that their email addresses no longer work. We didn't have a good way to test people's addresses, so I wrote a tool to send everyone an email. Poor Roger had to wade through the 170+ bounces that came back from the bad email addresses. We are going to test everyone's emails more often now, so the main list should not be as out of date. If anyone is on this list or knows someone that is on the list, send an email to email@example.com and let us know your current info.
ps. I think genealogy is like a big house where friends and neighbors wander in to say "hi!" and sit down to talk for a while. Some folks you see very often. Some you see once in a while. And some you never hear from again. But everyone is welcome to the come on in and sit a spell!
looking for Holiness preacher Jimmy Womack son of Richard Preacher also last know MO have some pictures of my moms would like to share
Hello Roger and everybody. Yes, as Roger says, the 17th century dates are just too perfect for the alleged "Henry of Accomack" line. And after a two week absence for some pro bono work, I have now finished the review of every record available from LDS for Accomack and Northampton Counties for the relevant period. 27 rolls of film. DAR and LOC have nothing extra. Northampton as well as Accomack because Accomack was for part of the time part of Northampton; they are the two counties of the VA part of the Delmarva peninsula. Result: Not one reference to a Womack or any conceivable variant of the name. Either these people lived there for more than one generation without owning land, without dying or somehow appearing in their or anyone else's probate records, without being in court for any reason, or without paying taxes - they weren't there. As always, happy to be proved wrong by evidence - in this case, wish somebody could.
Looking for any info on my grandfather, Clarence Earl Womack
He was born to James Ashbury Womack & Donie Casteel (Castell?)
Was probably born in Tennessee.
James has two brothers, Joe & Peyton and three sisters, Louise, Carry & M.M.
Any help would be appreciated!
Hi - I would like MO added to my list as our ancestors were living in Lincoln County, Missouri. 1820 Richard Wommack
Happy Holidays all....and yes I am one who lurks in the back and speak every great once in awhile...happy hunting all. Abraham 1810 Rutherford Co. NC. married married November 27, 1831 Elizabeth Shewmaker in Pope Co., IL. Daughter Louvisa married John Morrison and had 3 daughters...Martha (WillE. Milligan), Eliza, and Mary (Ira Jobe Matheny) in Hardin Co., IL.
My last message should have an "or" before "they weren't there". Anyway I doubt if anyone will misconstrue the point: apparently, they weren't there.
Couple or so Items:
1. Mark got the message, again.
2. David I am with you on that alien spaceship dropping people off, picking up and leaving no memory.
3. Any Idea who this Womack Belongs to??
1.....Harry Camp McCarty 1917 - 1981
......+Jeffey Edwards 1915 - 1973
......*2nd Wife of Harry Camp McCarty:
He died in Winder GA, which appears to be in Barrows County
So am assuming Kathlene may have also
4. Or these?
Descendants of Benjamin Wommack
......+Mary Lanier b: Dec 25, 1759 in Duplin Co, NC d: 1808 in Bullock Co, GA
.......2 Sally Wommack
.......2 Lucy Wommack
.......2 Betsy Wommack
.......2 Hannah Wommack
.......2 Benjamin Jr Wommack b: 1795
Mary Lanier is no problem she is descended from the first wife of
John Lanier b. UK abt 1655 - I descend thru his second wife..
Roger, Mark, Sam, Etal: Hello. I stop by nearly every time I'm on the net, but rarely send a message. I'm still looking for the marriage date and place for my grandparents: Lemuel Alexander Wom(m)ack (Known as "Allie" or "L.A.")and Nancy Elizabeth Reed. He was born in Johnson County, Illinois, she in Sebastian County, Arkansas. They must have been married about 1906 or 1907 as my mother, their first child, was born 14 October 1907. Anyone have a hint as to where or when they were married? Thanks,and keep up the good ancestery work. Bob
Hi Sam. Right. That evil alien spaceship also dropped off other people and things, including: William Charles Augustus Womack; the Duke of Albemarle (and his half-brother); John Richard Womack 1670-1738; Edward Womack; Wraby Lincolnshire; Most Womack Researchers; and CDVII Century Applic. David.
A Little help,Please, I have two questions that I would like to have answers
to. I received this obit That concernes Abner M Womack s/o William Big Billy
Womack. The obit states the brothers Jack and Judge Marion Womack were
survivors. Number 1 does anyone have info on Francis Marion b. Mar. 18, 1853 d.
May 14, 1927 being a Judge. Number 2 The Jack refered to must have beem Andrew
Jackson Womack b.1842 and d. Oct. 08, 1862 at Perryville KY.,Civil War.
Somethings wrong here,I show AJW having 7 children, his youngest being Jack.
Seven children for someone who was only 20 years old is pretty much. I don't
have a name for AJWs wife either. Need help to sort this out.
Thurs, 21 Dec 1916: At 5:30 p. m. yesterday, A. Womack, 78, died of
heart failure at home., 1028 No. 4th St. (This was in Waco, McLennan
Co., TX). Funeral arrangements are pending. Burial was to be in McGregor.
He lived in McGregor 25 years and moved to Waco l.5 yrs. ago. (McGregor
in McLennan Co., TX). He belonged to the Confederate camp in McGregor and
to Columbus Street Baptist Church in Waco (Now one of the largest churches
in the city). He was born in TN.
Survivors: wife, sons W. B. and J. H. Womack, daughters Miss Adeline Womack
and Mrs. T. W. Darby of Waco, son J. B. Womack of Riviera, TX, daughter Miss
Cecia Womack of Marshall, TX and brothers: Dr. Arsey Womack of Nashville, TN
and Jack and Judge Marion Womack of McMinnville, TN.
Friday, 22 Dec. 1916
Look at your date of death on that Jack Womack in 1862 - he couldnt have been in the obit as a survivor in 1916 - or did I read your post wrong?
Your rhetoric humbles me....
No you didn't read it wrong thats the way I got it. Either the Jack was the son of Jackson or the obit is wrong or he wasn't killed in the Civil War,you know how newspapers are. Somewhere in my travels on the net someone had a record from his father showing his death date I was hoping someone had info on Andrew Jackson as to the date he died and or where. If Francis Marion "Frank"Womack was a Judge there must be someone in Warren Co. who knows maybe "Wifebeater" Womack did time for him. I am Positive the obit is for my great Uncle because he and my grandfather Francis Pinckney moseyed off down here to Texas togather in 1889. Abner setteled in McGregor and Francis in Moody.
HEY...I WAS "SIRED"..BY A ANDREW JACKSON WOMACK...ALBEIT IN A DIFFRENT ERA,AND 7 KIDS BEFORE THE AGE OF 20 IS NOT A PROBLEM FOR A WOMACK...heh,heh,heh...!
Jack, with the usual caveat that this isn't my family - I thought it was Elias who was killed at Perryville, and another brother was killed at Atlanta. And that there was another brother named John, who easily could have been called Jack. But, clearly you are correct that clarification is needed there. That's Warren Co., TN? Let's see who turns up in the census - obviously if you are in the census, you probably aren't dead.
Jack, I just went over to Roger's 1880 census page. Now, there is Abner and wife Aseneth in Warren Co., TN, and indeed an Andrew Jackson age 35,with wife Sirena, and the list of children more or less as we have listed. So, you have 2 choices - a) not the right family and your guy is dead b) right guy and he is not dead.
My family live mainly in the north west of england but originated through my great grandfather migrating from Holland in 1900. I have little or no detail about this side of my family and would be grateful to anyone with information about the "Dutch Womacks". Thanks in anticipation.
FYI...For those of you who are members of Ancestry.com, they have posted

This is from their Bible record as best as I can aread it
The Abner Womack s/o William Big Billy was married to Asenith Webb. Sorry Charley
Well, how cool is it that the EPV Papers are now on ancestry! I had just about decided to ask Santa to bring me a copy (currently about $125 at a nearby used book shop; although I was planning to ask Santa to dicker - Santa is not big on dickering) Since I subscribe to ancestry anyway, I spent an enjoyable hour or so updating some notes about various ages the earliest guys claimed to be in various lawsuits. I note that I had failed to note that Thomas sued Timothy Allen after his mother had passed away - a further note to add!
I had rather be wrong than overlook something or someone - no problem on the correction atall!
Need some assistance from one of my Georgia "cousins". I'm chasing
the family of Walton B. Womack. Walton received a Soldiers Pension in Rooks
County, Kansas because his son David was killed in the Civil War. The photo copy
of the discharge states that he died October 10, 1864 from wounds received at
Allatoona Georgia October 6, 1864 while serving with Company B of the 39th Iowa
Infantry Regiment of the Army of the United States. Can any one tell me where he
is buried? or where I can go to find out where he is buried?
Having checked Georgia maps(present day & Civil War), I find Allatoona on the CW maps, but today's maps only Lake Allatoona. Can I assume that the town now lays at the bottom of a lake? Thanks for any help.
I'm thinking here that you want the Battle of Allatoona Pass just east of
Cartersville and the battlefield is on the west side of the Lake - try http://ngeorgia.com/history/allapass.html
The Corp of Engineers owns the lake, if there was a cemetery there, judging from
what they did when they took our family land in AR, there is a 50/50 chance that
they moved the cemetery, but at least the records of the Corp would list any
cemeteries that were there. I'm thinking that if anyone was reinterred it would
have been at Marietta or Atlanta
Hmm, not Marietta,it has a Wn. Womack d. 1865 from Missouri reinterred from Cahaba AL -
and a couple of non-CW Womacks - and that's the only one I see there in GA and the Park Service has taken down their Civil War databases to secure their systems, so I can't check the cemeteries owned by them, and I understand they have some land up near Allatoona.
Looks like David's in the pension database - hmmm, unless that discharge you mentioned was from the pension files, you could see if the pension file mentions where he was buried. Sorry I can't help more
Things are getting hectic here at the Womack household: the relatives are
rolling in, the kids are poised to pounce on the presents, last minute dinner
preparations are underway, mass is set for midnight! So I want to take this
opportunity to wish everyone out there Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a
Happy New Year! Another year is finishing up, and I am very glad that all of us
far flung Womack cousins have been able to spend it together. As always, I am
proud to be part of such a great group, and I am looking forward to the
genealogical adventures in the coming year.
I have some questions on this Womack family line from Hardin County,
Abraham Womack, Jr. was born 1810 in Rutherford Co., North Carolina, and died 1856 in Hardin Co., Illinois. He married Elizabeth Shewmaker November 27, 1831 in Pope Co., Illinois. She was born 1811.
Children of Abraham Womack and Elizabeth Shewmaker are:
i. Louvisa Womack, born 1834 in Hardin Co., Illinois; died 1911.
ii. William Wesley Womack, born August 27, 1836 in Hardin Co., Illinois; died November 16, 1920 in Karbers Ridge, Hardin Co., Illinois.
iii. Ella E. Womack, born 1837 in Hardin Co., Illinois; died 1911. She married Whitney Pilot.
iv. Abraham Isaac Womack, born June 13, 1838 in Hardin Co., Illinois; died 1941 in Karbes Ridge, Hardin Co., Illinois.
v. Martha Minerva Womack, born June 28, 1842 in Hardin Co., IL; died June 07, 1879 in Hardin Co., IL.
vi. Nancy S. Womack, born 1843; died 1918.
vii. Celia Malinda Womack, born July 01, 1846 in Pope Co., Illinois; died August 22, 1926 in Hardin Co., Illinois.
viii. Lewis Joshua Womack, born 1848; died 1878. He married Martha Sutton.
ix. James Thomas Womack, born November 10, 1849 in Hardin Co., Illinois; died December 26, 1893. He married Sarah Taylor; born Abt. 1855.
x. Abner C. Womack, born 1854; died 1877.
James Thomas Womack who married Sarah Taylor may have had other children not listed in the 1880 census. They were both age 31. I believe this couple had a son named Thomas Jefferson born some time after the 1880 census. Thomas Jefferson was my grandfather who is believed to had been born in Hardin county Illinois. His mother I know was a Sarah and is buried in a cemetery in Union county Illinois where I believed they moved from Hardin County. Her tombstone list her as being born in 1849 and she was buried in 1918.
So my question is (SORRY ABOUT THE LENGTH!) does is there anyone out there researching this family line that can help prove/disprove my theory? If so it will help me length together my family of Womacks to others. Thanks, God Bless
Happy Holidays Everyone
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO Y'ALL FROM YOUR 'COUSIN' IN FLAGSTAFF,AZ. MAY GOD BE WITH Y'ALL THRU THE COMING YEAR...AND MAY PEACE REIGN IN YOUR HEARTS...TIM

I have found some information regarding my ancestors that I am not sure is
accurate, but cannot find much more. If anyone can fill in any of the blanks I
would really appreciate it, or any advice on where to turn to find more.
My father - Stanley Eugene Womack was born 3/29/18 in Crowell Texas. He was the only child of Thomas Edgar (T.E. Womack) and Bessie Stanley Womack. Edgar was supposed to have been born in Crowell on 3/7/1891. I am told he had a twin sister named Lola and was one of 11 children. Edgar owned a Furniture Store and Funeral Home in Crowell, Texas with his brother W.R. (Will) Womack. His father was said to be R.P. Womack - my sister says Richard(I'm not sure of this name or if it was Rheas) Plum(Plummer?) Womack of Louisiana who fought for the Confederacy and moved to Texas after the war. He was born on 12/8/1844 and died 3/10/1931. R.P. was reportedly married to Martha K.(Kirkland - I think) Shields who was born 2/14/1851 and died 1/2/1936. This is about the most I know. I have some sketchy history farther back. I think R.P. was the son of Richmond and Arcadia Womack, but the information I have is almost unreadable.
Stan, I have R.Plummer Womack, sp Mattie Shields as the son of Richmond and
Arcadia Howell. Mattie may be Martha. Here is what I have as siblings.
1. Richmond7 Womack (David6, David5, Richard4, Richard3, Richard2, William1) was born February 16, 1825 in St. Helena Parish, Louisiana, and died June 08, 1863 in Battle of Vicksburg, Mississippi. He married Arcadia Howell December 15, 1842 in Rankin Co., Mississippi, daughter of Lewis Howell and Ruth Magee. She was born October 14, 1827.
Children of Richmond Womack and Arcadia Howell are:
2 i. William8 Womack, born 1842.
3 ii. Civila Jane Womack, born Abt. 1843. She married William Curtis Pattie; born Abt. 1840 in Brandon, Mississippi.
4 iii. Letishia Womack, born Abt. 1844. She married Frank Ammons January 24, 1877 in Rankin Co., Mississippi; born in Brandon, Mississippi.
5 iv. Recy Womack, born 1845.
+ 6 v. R. Plummer Womack, born Abt. 1846.
7 vi. Green Womack, born 1847.
8 vii. Ruth Womack, born 1849; died in Concordia Parish, Louisana. She married Lewis C. Campbell September 29, 1871 in Rankin Co., MS; born Abt. 1846 in Concordia Parish, Louisana; died in Concordia Parish, Louisana.
+ 9 viii. Richmond Womack, Jr., born Abt. 1851; died 1935 in Covina, California.
Wow! Thanks Roger. This helps a tremendous amount. I am just getting started
into researching the family and wasn't too sure about the information that I
had. I really appreciate the information.
Still searching for info on Love Womack. Foound out that he may have been born in Tennesee. Married Annie Birdwell in Texas. Had three children, then off to California.. Any info appreciated.
Just found this website. I am excited about all the info. from so many people. Looking for anyone related to the Womacks from N.W. Georgia. This is my husband's line. It goes as follows: William "The Immigrant Womack,John Womack Sr., Abraham Womack Sr., Abraham Womack Jr., Thomas Womack, Bird Womack, Thomas J. Womack, William Larkin Womack, John Henry Womack, William Larkin Womack, Eugene Henry Womack, Minnie Jeanette Womack. Minnie "Jeanette" is my mother-in-law. They came from Va. into N.C. down to Paulding Co., Ga., from there to Haralson Co., Ga. We have an annual Womack Reunion in Cedartown, Ga. every year. Hopefully this year it will be at our home on Lake Logan Martin in Pell City, Alabama. We are hoping to attract some of the younger generation to the reunion so that it won't fall by the wayside. Most of the older generation have passed on in recent years or are in failing health. It has become a burden to them to host this event, so our generation has taken over the task. We look forward to it every year. I have been going to these reunions for the past 35 years, give or take a few. If anyone has this family, let me know. I have quite a lot of info. on these Womacks and other lines within them. Donna Morris
In his book "The Descendants of Thomas and Louvisa Rice Womack" Oscar B. Womack on page 11 makes referance to "John Womack - Caswell Co." Does anyone have any background on this family of Womack's? I am 99.99% convinced that my line of Womack's did not descend from Thomas & Louvisa. So, I'm looking for ancestors of DAVID b. about 1780 in Rutherford Co. NC,m. Esther (or Maria Esther) Tanner 4 Oct 1809 in Rutherford Co NC (she was b. 1 Oct 1786 in Rockingham Va & d. 28 July 1867 in Kelley,Story Co, Ia) David's children were Oliver b.about 1812 Rutherford Co NC, Louisa b. about 1814 , Ursula b. about 1815 in Rutherford Co NC, and Walton B. b.about 1816 in Union Co Ky.
