I trying to trace my Mom's Womack roots. The oldest person I have is a John E. Womack who was forn in Georgia. He married Nancy Louisa Stone on July 8, 1830 in Putnam co., Georgia. He was known as a contractor or millwright by trade and when he moved to Arkansas he made a good name for himself as a builder (Independence County). Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I guess this is your John E then???

"The present court-house, which stands on block 15, at the corner of Broad and Main Streets, was erected in 1857 by Messrs. J. H. Peel and J. E. Wamac,"
Extract from Goodspeeds History of Independence County...

This is all I have on Putnam County - would like to mention that a Thomas
Womack was the County Clerk in Indepencence county for one or two terms way
back there - probably a relative of the one below and your John --

Womack, Thomas

Hello, Happy New Year. This is my first time to post anything, but I've read the messages before and yall seem like a great big happy family. I have two and 1/2 Womack lines.
1a. William Womack> Richard WomackI> Richard WomackII> Richard WomackIII> Jacob Womack> Martha Wommack m. Robert Bean
1b. William Womack> Ann Womack m. William Puckett> Elizabeth Puckett m. Richard WomackII> ...
2. William Womack> Abraham Womack> Jane Womack m. Henry Pew> Ann Pew m. Abraham Childers> Henry Childers> Nancy Childers m. Richard WomackIII> ....
I'm pretty sure of the first line, but I'm not so sure of the last one.
A few questions-- 1.Who was Abraham's wife? Sarah Worsham/Sumercales 2.Was Jane Womack his daughter? 3.Were Richard WomackII and his wife Elizabeth Puckett really first cousins? 4. Was Richard Womack III really the father of Major Jacob Womack of Watauga, Tenn.? Who was Jacob married to? Sarah Owens/Mary
I appreciate your help. Thanks, Robert


Tuesday, January 01, 2002 at 22:10:18 (PST)

As far as can be determined, Robert III was father of Major Jacob
And neither Sarah nor Mary was the Majors wife - Her name was Martha
last name unknown - some people have Mary Wills or Mary Wills Cole
as his wife - but I beg to differ with them on that point - Mary Wills
(the Cole is from her step father)was the wife of Jacob Womack, a first
cuz once or twice removed from the Major...this jacob is my 4th great
grandpa - Major Jacob had a daughter Martha who married Bean - and is
thought to have a daughter named Sarah and a son William -- those last
two need more research than I have seen --

And, by the way, if you see the DAR entry where his wife was Mary Wills, et al,
laugh at it. It is a joke!!

Anyway for anyone who is interested, I finished an on line survey of National Cemeteries for the surname - came up with quite a few names -- am looking for good links for Confederate Cemeteries so far havent got any clean ones - lots of mish mash but nothing clean -- the link goes thru my main link above.

Howdy Robert, I'll hop in here along with Sam to muddy things up a bit -

-- 1.Who was Abraham's wife? Sarah Worsham/Sumercales

My answer - no one knows! It's basically unprovable at this point. He seems to have been married and had kids, but as far as I can tell, no document shows his wife's name. The name Sarah Sumercales (scales, etc) - is from a land patent - she was a headright listed there.

--2.Was Jane Womack his daughter?

Now, this is where I get into trouble with people - you get a big no one knows on this one from me as well. I'd have to go actually look it up again in my notes, but as far as I can remember from the top of my head (which has a head cold at the moment, so is a little vague) The Childers line you have is correct as far as I know, back to Abraham Jr at least - he left a will as I recall, Ann Pew Childers Adkins is named as Ann Adkins in her father Henry Pew's will of 1709 - and he names both Childers and Adkins grandkids - so you are ok to there. But as far as I can remember, that's where you have to stop in documents on the Pews. He doesn't name a wife there, as far as I can recall, she isn't named in any deeds or wills. My own personal theory is that you have to leave her as Unknown. I just haven't found any connection back from the Pews to the Womacks. I'm open to any documents showing otherwise, though! I'm happy as a clam to clear that one up if possible. And I have also seen Jane Womack listed as a daughter of William the Immigrant. To which I say BAH!

3.Were Richard WomackII and his wife Elizabeth Puckett really first cousins?
Apparently so.

4. Was Richard Womack III really the father of Major Jacob Womack -
yes, Richard III was really the father of Major Jacob. Not to be confused, as Sam so rightly notes, with the other Jacobs.

And welcome to the hunt cuz! My line descends from Major Jacob's brother Abraham - which is where my Womack research is mostly concentrating at the moment, tracing his wives' backgrounds and tracking down some lost kids - a futile task most of the time! If I ever manage to clear that up to some degree of satisfaction, I'll move back another generation.

Came onto the site by curiosity...looking for some answers, even clues to my ancestory...dont have alot of info to offer at this point : Father James Harlen Womack born Little Rock Ark. April 1st 1935(???) died January 14th 1997. Sister Dorothy, brother Sonny. Thanks to anyone that reads me and drops me a line!

Jill, Well, here's a starting point for you - the Social Security Administration. The SSDI, which is the death index, lists James H. Womack b. Apr 1 1936 d. 14 Jan 1997 - last residence San Bernadino CA, SS number issued in Arkansas 1951 or 52. SSN was 429-62-5669
Now, you can fill out the SS 5 form and get his original application

should get you a page to print out a request, which will cost ya $27 US
or you can get his birth certificate from Little Rock. Or probably an obituary from San Bernadino. Happy hunting!

I am interested in the the name WYMOCK (sic) in Cambridgeshire and Suffolk in England. Alice WYMOCK married on 29 Apr 1756 at Cowlinge, Suffolk to Joseph BYE. To date I have been unable to discover where she was from and I think perhaps I am being frustrated by the spelling. The Cowlinge parish clerks were notorious for misspelling names, particularly those they were not familiar with.

Is anyone searching WYMOCK or variations in Suffolk or Cambridgeshire?

There, at this time, between 80 and 90 different spellings of the name 'WOMACK' and your Alice just happens to have one of them...I am not sure if she or her family are listed at www.womackonline.co.uk but you are welcome to have a looksee..

Janet Womack

I have been trying to find information on the Womack family from the southern Illinois (Harrisburg, Carrier Mills) area. My husband's grandfather, John Womack, was born around 1861, and married Ruth Hawkins in 1901. He died April 23, 1940. They had 5 children. My father-in-law was James Willard Womack, born February 1, 1908, in Illinois, and died April 14, 1988 in Pontiac, Mi. His siblings were, Orville, born August 26, 1903; Beatrice, born November 7, 1905; Oral, born November 11, 1910; and Harold, born February 18, 1913. All siblings are deceased. Any information steering me in the right direction will be appreciated. Thanks, Janet Womack

I am looking for more information on MARK SANDERS WOMACK b.01/01/1796 in Baldwin, GA. His father is listed to be WILLIAM WOMACK, his mother as MARGARET MARY ANN ELLIS, his 1st wife as ELIZABETH H. AVENT. I know that I am kin to him by his daughter MARY LOUISE ELIZABETH WOMACK b.ABT.1836. Her husband JOSEPH ROBERTSON had a son named JOSEPH MARK ROBERTSON that married LOU ELLA BOX and the two of them had a daughter named RUBY FLOYCE ROBERTSON that married JOE COOK and they had a daughter named SARA GAY COOK(still living) which is my mother. What I am wondering is How am I kin to WILLIAM WOMACK AND WIFE MARY JANE ALLEN? It gets a little confussed! Please respond and explain, I think somewhere down the line with all the ABRAHAMS is where i get confussed!

Ann McDonald

Christie, Well, I have Mark Sanders Womack's parents as William and Mary Ann Hunt Womack. William died in 1803 in Hancock Co., GA, and his wife remarried to Matthew Chiles and his father Abraham was appointed guardian of the children. Mark Sanders Womack married twice Mary Louisa Elizabeth Womack Robertson apparently is named in his will as a daughter.

Now, back from Mark Sanders - and this is NOT my line, Mark's father was Abraham IV, then Abraham III, then Abraham Jr, then Abraham Sr, then apparently John, then the William immigrant.

Sorry to say I don't have much in the way of documentation on that line, as it really isn't one of mine. Hope that helps, though.

David Dunn

Working on the earliest Womacks again and need help. I can link Richard I, Abraham, William and Thomas as brothers, mostly through Abe's lawsuits, but I forget how we know John was a brother and can't find it; memory tells me Richard gave John land but I can't find the reference.


Saturday, January 12, 2002 at 16:27:16 (PST)
Ann McDonald

David, if memory serves the connection is in trial of John Womack for stealing hogs and apples. I am fairly sure that Thomas had to testify against John, and I'm virtually positive there was something in there about the Grangers being either the victims of the theft or him roping in John Granger by passing along stolen pigs. The EPV papers are on-line at ancestry now, so I'll go see if anything obvious pops up. Ann

Hi Ann,
I was reading your message you had posted on Wed. 1-2-2002 and noticed that you have Richard Womack II and Elizabeth Puckett Womack as 1st cousin ( they are my 7th great grandparents ). I have that they are double 1st cousins. Don't know if I am right are not, but I have Richard II's Dad and Elizabeth's Mom as brother and sister and Elizabeth's Dad and Richard II's Mom as brother and sister.
Thanks for your help with this. Dianne

David Dunn

Ann and others. I found my reference. But first, yes, Thomas testified in the John hog theft thing, and yes John Granger, married to Richard's widow, was the plaintiff in the hog theft thing, but nothing in those records says John was related to those other Womacks. Today I found in my written notes of reading the FHL microfilm of the Henrico County Court Record book for 1677-93, for p.168, the following: "Richard Womecke of Parish of Bristoll . . . for love and affection . . . to brother John of same . . . 100 ac. on which Richard now lives . . ."; "line of Thos Puckett, Peter Ashbrook . . . Holmes Spring, Spring Slash, Ready branch of Ashen Swamp" Why Valentine didn't abstract this I don't know.

Ann McDonald

David, most excellent! Thnkas! I knew it was there someplace, I just had it mentally stored under John's court records. Actually I had fun looking at those when ancestry put them up recently - I think the first one in there was one I had forgotten. So and so testifies that he knows nothing about John Womecke killing sheep. Well, that'll make ya think!

Dianne, yep, they were at first cousins, and most likely were double first cousins. Off hand I couldn't at the time remember which Pucketts that particular Elizabeth had been attributed to - there were 2 different supposed fathers at one point, based on varying evidence. I still can't remember off hand why I seem to recall that William Puckett and another of his brothers have variously been attributed as the father. I'd have to go look - I've had a rough holiday season - what can I say, my brain needs some help on these details! All I'm remembering at this point is that Elizabeth was hauled before the parish council for her lack of educating the kids. Ann

Trying to get in touch with Roger Womack, WGN Webmaster, as I am trying to proof
my Choctaw Indian heritage. My gggrandmother Rachael Wrizopa "Rispy" Southern,B)1813 in MS. USA D)1870 in Winn Par. LA.
was told to me by my mother to be full blood choctaw, but I don't have the proof
data. She was married to Robert Womack, B)24 Jul 1833 in Simpson Cty, Ms. d)8 July 1865 Winn Par. LA USA Any info will be appreciated! Glad to find such a
wonderful Site for research of my Womack Roots! Ann

Ann McDonald

Ann, who you need to talk to is Markie Owen
is her webpage - there is a photo of Rispey Southern there.
Robert Womack Jr married Martha Jane Miller, who was 1/2 Choctaw, Robert's sister married James Phaster, who was 1/2 Choctaw, and like Rispey Southern, several of the other wives are possibly Choctaw. Markie was doing the most research on the subject. Ann

Hi i am kin to MARK SANDERS WOMACK. I was wondering how to put some information on the website about the famiy? i have seen where his daughter MARY LOUISE ELIZABETH WOMACK(my gg-grandmother)married a man with the last name robberts. That is incorrect. She married JOSEPH ROBERTSON b. 1828 in South Carolina. They had several children: MARGARET b. 1862, JAMES b.1869, JOSEPH MARK b. Nov. 1871, WILLIAM b. 1854. This information is according to the Yalobusha Co. Mississippi Federal Census. JOSEPH MARK ROBERTSON married LOU ELLA BOX b. July 23, 1876 or 1877. They had several children: RUBY FLOYCE ROBERTSON being one (which is my grandma). RUBY was born Sept. 21, 1910 in Mississippi and died in Duncanvill, Texas Dallas Co. on Nov. 11, 1988. RUBY married 1st ROBERT WESLEY WEST and they had 4 children. RUBY then married 2nd JOE COOK ( my grandfather). JOE COOK b. Sept. 19, 1899 in Mississippi and died June 7, 1960 in Dallas Co., Texas. RUBY and JOE had 12 children in which 1 is SARA GAY COOK (my mother and still living). SARA married DONALD RAY CORIGAN b. Sept. 14, 1944 in Las Angeles, CA and died July 2, 1987 in Duncanville, Texas Dallas Co. SARA and DONALD RAY had 3 children: I am one of them CHRISTIE CORIGAN now married to Fitzgerald with 3 children. I would like for someone to please contact me about maybe putting my information on how i am kin to MARK SANDERS WOMACK on the website!

I loaded about 20 pages of surnames and connected to me webber; HOWEVER, you cannot go beyond the index to the pedigree - if you need info on anyone you find, YOU must first give me what YOU have on that line - then I will assimilate and return info to you - name requests without back up will not be honored, sorry about this. I am in an info exchange not the US information agency!
This action necessary because of unauthorized posting of MY family data to FTM,
Ancestry and other where stupid people give info for sale to others - without charge and is sold by the afore mentioned named.
If, people would stop their, stupidity; these take for nothing and sell back would be a lot more non existent than they are!
Anyone that submits to any of these sites, are stupid and not in my line of thought! And if that shoe fits,and offends, do be it - you earned it!!!

Roger, et. al:

I decided to repost this message in case the New Year brought anyone new to the list. I'm still hunting in for marriage information for Tignal Archer Womack
and Mary E. Moore. Probably in Virginia in the late 1850s. TA later (post-Civil
War) created a whole new family and left Mary with 3 small daughters and thinking she was the widow of a valiant soldier of the Confederacy.

Here's my prior post:

I have pulled this information because I have been searching for Mary E.(Moore) Womack the "widow" of Tignal Archer Womack, son of Richard and Harriet Womack of Carter County, KY. At the time of the 1880 census,Archie/TA and Mary's daughter Jesten (Livonia Jesten Womack) was living in Carter County, KY 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. Below is the 1880 Census info Roger posted on this site (Thanks Roger!)

Lorrie Schaefer

I am looking for information on Robert Nolan Womack who lived in Texas (Brownwood and Mart area) around the last of the 1800s and maybe into the 1900s. He married an Ida Allan Reynolds in 1887 in Freestone County. He and Ida had eight children, including my grandfather, John Aubrey - who was born in 1898 in Mart, Texas. Our part of the family is now located in Oregon and has lost touch with all of grandpa's relation. My list from grandpa indicates his siblings were named Pauline (born 8/1888), Reynolds Nolan (born 11/1889), Jacob Millage, Tommy Roe, Evely, Robert Leland, Wilma Jewell (last known to be in the San Francisco area of California) and Edwin Lewis.

Robert apparently had three sisteres that grandpa knew of - Mattie Stephens, Cornelius Harris, and Sally Arvin (who had a daughter Kate?).

I believe that his mother remarried a man named Young after Robert died in Brownwood. Grandpa said she moved to Arizona with Mr. Young (last address I found in an old address book indicates probably Mesa, Arizona).

Can anyone be of help?

Southern Sentinel Newspaper, Ripley, Tippah Co., Mississippi
Obit for Cal Wammack, Dead (1917)
Mr. W.C. Wammack, familiarly known in this county as "Uncle Cal" died at his home last Friday afternoon. It seems tht he was unwell at the noon hour and after starting back to his work returned to the house and lay down across the bed. His wife thought he was asleep and did not bother him until late in the afternoon. When she called him he made no response, and upon examination she found that he was dead. Just how long it had been since he breathed the last could not be told. His remains were interred Saturday afternoon at Jacob's Chapel. Mr. Wammack had lived to the ripe old age of about 80 years. He had been married three times and had the unique distinction of having married three sisters. He raised a large family of children and always provided well for them. He was uneducated but a man of good common sense and judgment and one of the hardest workers this county has ever had. By sheer force of hard work and wise investment he accumulated quite a good deal of property and money. He was thoroughly honest and helped many poor people who were unable to get help elsewhere. He had many friends and all deeply regret his death. He will be much missed around Ripley, where his weekly visits have been made for more than fifty years, and even more in the community where he lived. The Sentinel (newspaper) deeply sympathizes with his loved ones in their great loss.

I have just came across the Womack genealogy. My father (Owen Womach) died in 1960 in Spokane, WA. His parents both died when he was just a child. He knew nothing about his parents. He had one brother, Earl, and two sisters, Matilda and Eunice. I never expected to learn anything about my ancestors. This really excites me so if anyone has any information about this will you please let me know. Thank you, Lois

David Wayne Womack

Does anyone have any information on this individual? He was my Grandfather. I am finding it difficut to trace my father's side of my family.

Granville Curtis WOMACK, b. June 24, 1912 d. August 27, 1966.
Married ??? to Vada Christine Swindell

They lived in and around Fannin County Texas most of their lives. I am hoping to get a name for my grandfather's father and to link up to some of this great information out there.

According to my father (Billy Joe), my grandfather legally changed his name to "Grant", but I have no proof of that.
