SURNAME WOMACK

Christian-Mitchell marriage(s):

Mrs. Lucinda Christian Mitchell of Jones County, Georgia.

Lucinda's mother's maiden name, according to family records, was Nancy Womack. Mrs. Nancy Womack Christian is listed in the 1850 census for Jones County, Georgia, with her husband, Henry Christian, and her children.

WAR HISTORY OF THE CHILDREN

Mitchell-Christian Marriages:

Lucinda Christian Mitchell married Warren Anderson Mitchell, C.S.A (great grandson of Henry Mitchell, Revolutionary Soldier, of Jones County) on March 26, 1861, in Jones County, Georgia. Both Lucinda and Warren are in the 1850 census for Jones County, Georgia.

According to Confederate Widow's Pension Claim, No. 3655, dated August 24, 1891, Warren Anderson Mitchell was serving, on duty, in the recruiting office, at Camp Watts (Camp of Instruction Number One), near Notasulga, Alabama, when he contracted pneumonia and died on November 20, 1862. Warren Anderson Mitchell was brought back to his old home, in Clinton, Jones County, Georgia, and buried there.

Do any Womacks have any information about the regimental history and company information for Warren Anderson Mitchell? Lucinda was surviving the Civil War.

First Sgt. Hardy Christian, C.S.A., is included in the 1850 census for Jones County, Georgia. First Sgt. Hardy Christian, C.S.A, was serving and was surrendered at Appomattox.

Hardy Christian married Martha Mitchell, in Jones County, Georgia. Martha Mitchell Christian is included in the 1850 Jones County census under the household of her father, Uriah Mitchell. Cousin Mitchells, do you need any information?

New Guinea Station, Virginia

Private William H. Christian, who was included in the 1850 census of Jones County, Georgia, was serving and died at New Guinea Station, Virginia (now, according to the Virginia Historical Society, called simply Guinea, Virginia).

Jones County Records

The Civil War records for First Sgt. Hardy Christian and for Private William H. Christian are for Company F, Gray Volunteers (Jones County, Georgia), 45th Georgia Volunteer Infantry. These records were discovered in May 1956 in Macon, Georgia, in a confederate monument, upon removal. They are available under Jones County history.

Civil war records are appreciated. Lookee, here, Lucinda, Clinton is having its Civil War reenactment, this May, within a few days. I won't be peeking at the travel book, "Hidden Georgia". Briefly, Clinton saw 15,000 Federal troops and one-third of the town burned. Womacks, please help me find Warren's records. Where are the records, Womacks?

Where are the Womacks from?

Thanking you, Womacks,

I am a descendant of Martha Womack dau Abraham (1644-1733). My records indicated that Martha may have been the dau of Abraham and Sarah Summercales (there is a question mark after Sarah Summercales name and no mention of Sarah Worsham.) This info was from Maxine Hulse Tinkham's "Womack Genealogy" originally written in 1979, updated in 1986.

Who knows whether Martha was Sarah Worsham's dau?

Thank you.

Jackson Co. AL
Looking for ancestors of Josiah Womack (b.ca 1855 TX, d. 6/22/1918 AL) who married Sarah Addie Bryant (b. 1/25/1868 AL, d. 6/1/1913 AL). Josiah appears to be the son of a John R. or B. Womack (b.ca 1832 TN, d. 1865 AL) and his wife Sarah (b.ca 1827 TN, d. 1870 AL), as they appear in the 1860 Jackson Co. census. They are all buried in the Bryant Cemetery in Jackson Co.

I am trying to clarify some Womack ancestors on my mother's side. I will list what I know, if anyone out there can help please do!
My grandfather: Robert Peoples Womack
Ggrandfather: William Oliver Womack
GGgrandfather: William Peoples Womack
GGGgrandfather: Josiah Womack b. 1771 married to Mary Massey
GGGGgrandfather: Abraham Womack b. 1726 spouse unknown maybe Elizabeth
Now my question is this, Abraham Womack b. 1726, his father is listed as being William Womack b. around 1647 (according to what I have found). That means William had Abraham when he was in his 70's. So I think there is a generation gap there or the date is wrong. Does anyone have any solid evidence of who Abraham Womack's father is? FRom my sources William was, but those dates cannot be accurate. I was told by my family we are descended from John Womack b. 1653 (the wife beater) but the research I am turning up says not him but maybe one of his Uncles. So I am very confused. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks :o)

Addendum to the previous message:

I am also looking for anyone who is descended through Josiah Womack's (b MArch 26 1771) line.

Children of Josiah WOMACK and Mary MASSEY are:
1. Elizabeth WOMACK was born 15 Dec 1803 in Caswell Co, NC, and died 28 Oct 1857.
2. Mary Polly WOMACK was born 17 Nov 1805, and died 23 Mar 1810.
3. Thomas Massey WOMACK was born 9 Oct 1807 in Caswell Co, NC, and died 1859 in , TN.
4. Martha S WOMACK was born 27 Apr 1810, and died 7 Sep 1887.
5. William Peoples WOMACK was born 31 Jul 1812 in Caswell Co, NC, and died 5 Oct 1861 in Tunica Co, MS. <- I am descended through him.
6. Abraham WOMACK was born 31 Oct 1814, and died 1883 in Rockingham Co, NC.
7. Mary Ann WOMACK was born 26 Feb 1817 in Caswell Co, NC, and died 28 Mar 1859.

9. Joseph B WOMACK was born 5 Apr 1823, and died 17 Oct 1858.

Our family records start from Josiah's line. We are not really clear on his ancestors. We have some names and dates but they do not add up. If you are a descendant of one of Josiah's children and have this info please share :o) The Womack line is from my Mom's side and alot of my current relatives live in Erath Co. Texas/Stephenville area. Thanks for your help.

I seem to be flooding this message board ;)

Please excuse my rudeness. I just started researching my mother's line and am very excited about what I am finding, and also frustrated at what I cannot find. I never knew resarching your family tree could be so addicting! My husband and I are currently fighting over computer time *snicker*!

I know there seems to be a mystery as to who the parents were of a Thomas Womack born 1743 who married Louvisa Rice? In researching my tree, I am finding mixed up dates and people. This is what I have found, if anyone knows differently please correct it.

William Womack b. 1610 in England married Mary Jane Allen
One of their sons was Abraham Womack who married Sarah Summerscales
One of their sons was a Thomas Womack who married Mary Farley
One of their sons was an Abraham Womack born about 1670s
He has two lines? One through a Nancy Blaton who he did not marry. Their son was a Thomas Womack born 1743 who married a Louvisa Rice. They had several children.
He (Abraham Womack born abt 1670s) did marry a Jane ? in 1691 in Henrico Co., VA. Their son Abraham Womack was born 1726. He married Elizabeth Stubblefield and had 10 children. One of their children Josiah Womack is who I am descended from. This info I collected from various sources on the internet plus records in a book that my family has on the Womacks. My questions is this, if there is so much controversy surrounding the parents of Thomas who married Louvisa, how can I be sure that Abraham Womack fathered the Abraham Womack b. 1726. From what I have found Thomas born in 1743 and Abraham born in 1726 are half brothers. Please clarify! If this info is wrong I need to know. My family said we were descended from John Womack b. 1653 but from the digging around I have done that is not the case. We are descended from Abraham Womack born about 1670s. Thanks for any help, it is much appreciated.

Thanks so much Sam for that info. I had posted again before I saw your post. Are you sure on those dates? I ask because you have Abraham Sr. Womack born 1708 and having a son Abraham Womack 1725. That means he was married and a father at 17 yrs of age. Which can happen, but he seemed young.

Now, so it seems the line is this and correct me if I am wrong!

William Womack born 1610 England married Mary Jane Allen,
their son Abraham Womack born 1644 in Henrico Co., VA married to a Sarah Summerscales.
They had a son named Thomas Womack born about 1672 in Henrico Co., who married a Mary Farley.
Their son Abraham Sr. Womack born about 1708 in Henrico Co., who married an Elizabeth who was born about 1710.
They had a son named Abraham Womack born about 1725 who married an Elizabeth Stubblefield.
Their son was Josiah Womack born 1771 who married Mary Polly Massey.

From Josiah my family has all his descendants compiled in a Womack Book.

Now a ?, are you sure on the two Abrahams who had wives both named Elizabeth? Could it be only one Abraham and Elizabeth? I wonder about that since the senior Abraham would have had Jr. Abraham at the age of 17, and Elizabeth the mother would have only been 16 yrs of age. Or could it have been two diffreent Abrahams with wifes Elizabeth who are not related?? Also this lineage you provided clears up the other post that I made. I had found some info that the Abraham I am descended through had had an affair with a Nancy Blanton resulting in Thomas Womack who married Louvisa. SO I am still unclear about this. ALso my family had insisted we were descended through a John Womack born 1653, through his son William born abt 1700 who had a son Abraham born abt 1725. But from your info this Abraham was from Abraham Sr who was from a Thomas Womack. I think the confusion can be cleared up now in my family. Apparently we are descended from John Womack's brother Abraham Womack born 1644.

This is soooooo much fun! hehehe.

Any other info would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone would like information about the Josiah Womack line born 1771 let me know. We have a book in our family that is a compilation of letters, poems, wills and grievances written by our Womack ancestors. It has alot of interesting stories in it. And if anyone has any additional info to clear up anything please let me know. This has been a mystery in my family for years as to who the father was of Abraham Womack born 1726. Thanks :o)

Hi Jackie! Nice to hear from you. I'm willing to bet that Roger and Sam were betting on how long it would take before I hit the reply button! LOL!

Ok, who you have there is John Womack - middle initial sometimes given as B. - who was the son of John and Sarah Avery Lewis Womack. John was born ca. 1780 and died before 1840. He was the son of Abraham Womack and his first wife, Martha Mitchell. Sarah Avery Lewis was b. 10-Apr-1786 and married in Warren Co., GA 12-Aug-1805.

Now, the reason Roger and Sam were snickering away in the background about me replying, is that your John was the brother of my ancestor Mansel Womack, and Sarah Avery Lewis was the sister of Mansel's second wife Mary Mariah Lewis.

Sarah and Mary Mariah were 2 of 10 children of Jacob and Sarah Avery Noland Lewis - that family, if I am remembering correctly, traces back to colonial Maryland, quickly looking it up, it says in my notes that Jacob and Sarah were married in Frederick Co., MD in 1769. If you have noted the records of Butler Co., AL, you'll find their brother Pearce Lewis and his family, among others, hanging around with the Womacks. I'd actually have to go to my big pile of notes to go farther back on the Lewis family - unless cousin Miles happens to see this and pop in with his notes!

Ok, back to the Womacks - Abraham Womack apparently married twice, first to Martha MITCHELL in Granville Co., NC in 1763 and then probably in GA to another Martha around 1783 or so. Martha Mitchell is said to have been born 4-Mar-1744 and died 1-Dec-1782 (got the date from a family bible abstract, haven't seen it, can't swear to it) and Martha ?'s first kid was probably born about 1785.

Other than the fact that there was a large Mitchell family in and around Granville Co, NC, Martha's parentage is unknown. Abraham, was born 22-Apr-1742 and died around 1797 when he left a will in Hancock Co., GA.

From Abraham on back in the Womacks, you go Richard III, Richard JR, Richard Sr, William the immigrant.

laradal@pdq.net

This is to Sam who had posted the lineage to me in a previous message. I was able to track down the book I need at my mother's house. I looked up some names in the book that a relative wrote about "William Oliver Womack and Wirt ADams Love, their ancestors and descendants." She says that Abraham Womack was born in 1726, his father was William Womack born 1700 in Henrico Co., Virgina. And William's father was Abraham Womack born around 1668 son of John the wifebeater Womack born around 1653. She said this was probable. I did look through some trees on ancestry.com and found this:
Name: William Womack
Sex: M
Birth: ABT. 1700 in Henrico County, Virginia

Father: Abraham Womack , Sr. b: ABT. 1668 in Henrico County, Virginia
Mother: Mary

Marriage 1 Spouse Unknown
Children
Abraham Womack b: 1726 in Virginia

When I click on the Abraham WOmack Sr it gave me John Womack as his father and Mary Akins as his mother.

So according to these two different sources, he came through John Womack's son Abraham and not Thomas Womack born 1672. So I am really confused! There were quite alot of Abrahams and Williams in the Womack line and it is hard to sort through this lineage. Do you know of this line? Does anyone have any documentation about William Womack born about 1700 in Henrico Co. Virginia, whose father was Abraham Womack Sr.? If anyone does I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I will be moving later this year and I have been doing some early packing. I found two old pictures from 20 years or more ago, of two headstones in Old Malden Cemetery, Malden, Dunklin County, Missouri. I don't know these two Womacks.
R. G. Womack born Sept 12, 1861
died Aug 6, 1932

Next Lot
Richard T. Womack born Oct. 7, 1882
died Jan. 8, 1936
I hope some one can identify them and perhaps fill in a blank. My mother Dorothy Beatrice Womack Moore is buried in that cemetery.

dadunn@terranova.net

Lara, Perry, and everybody. Well I am really working on the article about the earliest Womacks. I intend to start with a survey of exactly what we do know (and thus what we don't know) about the first certain Henrico Womacks - the five brothers Richard, Abraham, John, Thomas and William. Part of that follows. If anyone can contradict or correct any of what I am about to say with verifiable evidence please do so! First there is no hard evidence that a William existed as their father; there is some circumstantial evidence about which Ann has written on this site (the "orphans of William" legal matter). But there certainly are: no dates; and, no hard evidence as to whom his wife might have been. If he existed, there is circumstantial evidence that she may have been a Mary and less good circumstantial evidence that she may have been an Allen. There is no evidence whatsoever about who Abraham's wife might have been.

Lara,
As I see it, and someone correct me if I am wrong, there is no way that Abraham Womack born about 1668 can be a son of John born about 1653. John's will states that Abraham is the youngest son of several who are mentioned in the will. I would estimate that John's son Abraham probably wasn't born much before the 1680's, if not later, depending on whether or not he also had some older sisters.

You are right Bob, I finally figured that one out! I had some help, Roger from womacknet.net had sent me alot of info that helped to clear up my line. But then there was only a 17 yr difference between Abraham Sr and Abraham Jr. So who knows! I don't think anyone can ever be 100% sure on their Womack line (unless you are a Womack in England). It is a Womack mystery.

In response to David: AS long as there isn't any paper proof then we will never know. It is all supposition. I am very new to this and I want to know why is there no evidence for William and his sons? No wills, bible entries anything?

Yes Yes my isp changed my email addy --

on the question about why no documentation on Ole Will, et al:

a. either he did not exist
b. there were no records kept
c. records have been lost or destroyed with time
d. someone is hoarding in a trunk or closet.
e. he was a figment of someones imagination like Henry of Maryland/
Accomack VA
f. all of the above -

Take your pick any could apply!!!

Also, David, were you ever able to get an extract of that will from 1628 or 1629, from the UK on that Henry Womack?? I sent E mail to the records keeper and got no response --

Dear Womacks,

I have come across a John Womack in Pulaski Co. Ga. in land deals with
the Sherrard family. In the early 1800's.My Warmacks have intermarried with
them at least twice. I would like to have some info on him and family as I
belive he is the father of my John and william Warmack. Anything would be
helpful or I could be off base? Wondering. M.W.

I have recently read the archived posting by Sam Jordan (Dec 2, 1999 at 10:28 PST). In this message Sam listed the family of Alfred Jackson Womack and his wife Jane Denkins. Children included Joseph Emerson Womack who married Annie Eliza Womack. Grand children included Robert Kendrick Womack who is Sam's granfather (according to another posting of Sam's).

Annie Eliza Womack is a half sister of my father, Clifton Methvin Lokey (my father is only about 9 years older that Annie's son Robert). Because of the age difference and living some distance apart, I never got to know this part of my family and I would dearly love to establish contact with some of the descendants of Annie and Joe. Sam's e-mail address no longer works and I could not find another posting in the archives. If any of you can give me a lead to Sam or other members of this family I would be grateful.

I will be happy to provide information on Annie Lokey's family to any who are interested. Thanks and I hope to hear from any of you all.

I am just beginning my search of the Womack family history. So, I probably have very little to offer. My mothers name was Sarah Rhunette Womack. She had three brothers James, Otis, and William, and one sister, Martha. To the best of my knowledge they were all born in or around Macon GA between 1915 and 1925. They all passed away before I was old enough to have learned any of the family history or origins. Any pointers on where to start will be appreciated.

yeah using a freebie e mail addy till I can get some decent service again --

Ann,
There was a posted copy of Cherry Grove on line a few years back - I posted it as I borrowed the book from Walter Womack and copied it - I dont know if Roger or Mark downloaded a copy of it or not -- It was on geocities, I think, and I gave up on that bunch and deleted (after downloading to disk) the stuff I had there --

Ann, no one seems to have a copy of Cherry Grove on disk handy at the moment. You can go to your nearest LDS family history center and order it on microfilm. Or depending on where you live you may be able to get if on interlibrary loan from another library. Ann

OOOOOOOOOOKKKKK!
Looks like me server gets booted and I keep MSN after all! Good thing I didnt terminate them!! Nor make too many changes to my E mail thangy's on the web pages (hmm gotta check themout tho!)..

David what other references are you referring to? Womack Genealogy from McMinnville is on line (thanks to Rog, Mark and I), Cherry Grove is as you see thanks to the three of us again. I think all three of us have Descendants of Thomas and Louvisa somewhere...Theres another that Markie put on her web page and I think Rog has a link somewhere to it ot at least its on her web page accessible thru WGN links...
There are some articles I have found and posted on my web page, I hope the links still work anyway...
And, you are right, there is a lot of stuff out there that needs be cross referenced for all to see and use...

Hello to all you Womacks out there. I am a descendant of Newton C. "William" Womack. His daughter, Rebecca, is my greatgrandmother. I just recently found the Womack Cemetery where she is buried; however, there is only one headstone in the cemetery. The cemetery is located west of Morrison's Bluff, Arkansas. I am trying to locate any descendants of her three children by her first marriage to William Rowlett. Their names are Bettie, Albert and Joseph Rowlett. I found this family in the 1870 census of Johnson County, Arkansas. She married Samuel Lafayette McCutcheon, my greatgrandfather, in January 1880. She died after 1888. I am so thrilled to have found the cemetery, but would love to know which is her gravesite. I think her mother, Sarah Watson Womack, is also buried there. It is an abandoned cemetery, but I want to start taking care of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for this being so long a message.

After reading my previous message, it sounds like I was asking for help with the cemetery. I didn't mean for it to sound that way. I'm needing help in locating Bettie, Albert and Joseph Rowlett descendants. Albert married Jesse Hamm in April 1888 in Logan County, AR. Joseph married Cora McDonald in October 1888 in Logan County, AR. They were married by William Newton Womack MG. W.N. Womack was my ggrandmother's brother.

Trying hard to find James Lee Womack, son of Theodore and stepson of Alma. Last I heard of him, he was living in the Miami, FL area in 1965, although he originally hailed from somewhere near Chattanooga, TN. I think he has a step sister named Star.

Any help?
