My husband's grandmother was KITTIE WOMACK, born in Anderson, Texas, on August 26, 1883. Her parents were MARK S. WOMACK and CAMILLA C. (FORRESTER) WOMACK. We found in a safety deposit box "An Account of the Womack Family"....Eight Generations in America from Wales, England and Ireland to Virginia, South Carolina, Texas. It has some fascinating information including chronological table of births, marriages, and deaths. This was researched and written by FOSTER B. WOMACK (KITTIE's brother), in Waco, Texas in 1937.

James Womack

Hey Sam,
I copied some pages from the family bible I had told you about. I would love to send them to you if you would like to have them. It seems that they came from my great grandfather's sister, a lady named Sallie Womack. She never married according to my relatives. It has some really interesting information. I would love to mail you a copy if you would like. I would be glad to send it to anyone else who might be interested. It has a complete listing with birth dates of the grandchildren of James Jasper Womack. I look forward to hearing from any of my kin who might have some other things of this nature that they wish to share.

Gosh, I hope I don't get carried away with this. just in the last year, I found out that my gr grandparents were Nancy Womack and George Lincoln Woods both dying in Canada. Ok, their son Raymond Vincent Woods lived in the United States but his siblings lived in Canada also. I had always heard stories of my grandfather playing bass "bull" fiddle with the original sons of the pioneers. I contacted that site and of course was told he couldn't have played. Ok, that made me angry, because I have a snapshot of flowers shaped like a bass fiddle from his funeral in 1971. I have the letter from the pastor from his funeral that says he played with the sons of the pioneers and T. Texas Tayler (who I had never heard of) Ok angry that I would be told he didn't play with "Roy Rogers" I contacted my uncle who informed me that my grandfathers last wife had documentation to prove that he had played. Ok, I find this site and lo and behold there is Roy Rogers having a grandmother named womack. My problem, is my grandfather died in 1971 and his exwife Nora would be the one to find the documentation. Nora had a daughter Elizabeth Wombold and my grandfather had a daughter Mary Lou Anderson. I don't have a clue where to find these people as it was so long ago. My grandfather was married at least 3 times. me from his first marriage, my uncle from his second marriage and the adopted daughter (mary lou) from his last marriage. As you can tell, being all over the U.S. I have not had any contact with anyone but my uncle. he inturn says he hasn't had any contact with Mary lou. We just can't find her. Of course all this is a long shot as they might not have kept the documentation. Oh now I am confusing every one. It just is so amazing the I look and see that my grandfather and Roy Rogers on of the same line and sad they probably never knew it. I just wish there was someone out there who could help me find out about my sons of the pioneers roots ( honestly) My grandfather was also world champion fiddle player at a Montana state fair once. Anyone know how I can find Elizabeth Rombold ( last know in 71 as living in Dutton, Montana )or Mary Lou Anderson ( last know as living in Tacoma, Washington) Gosh that was 40 years ago. Elizabeth would probably be in her 70's and Mary Lou in her 50's. I know I am grasping at straws but where else to go for help but this site! Its the greatest. Thankyou for helping me trace my Womack-Woods line.

I may get carried away a lil bit here; BUT, a word for the wise and a lesson learned to ALL- DO NOT send someone 17 damn jpg files scanned from a book in a row! first JPG isnt a good medium - second they need editing to keep small for transmission, third they should be scanned OCR, AND sent as a text file. That whole booklet could be contained in less than one jpg! My main e mail is so jammed I have no idea when I can use it again. I have a firewall and each time a hacker hits the download stops, and at the rate the downloads are going, it wil take me staying up 24 hours eliminating the hacker messages so the download can resume -- If I stop the downloading, it starts all over at 1 again so am in a real mess here -- if you need to send a mail send it that is still good for now...

I have a question regarding a NC family. Perhaps one of my Womack 'cousins' can identify or clarify the family for me. I enjoy the overall Womack 'picture' in this region of NC, even if not my own direct line from Thomas Womack and Sarah Owen in Rowan/Davidson NC. Curiosity got the best of me re: one John W. Womack.

Re: my Thomas Womack family, there is a deed record which I now have. If interested I have the complete record.

"1780 - Thomas Wamock & wife Sarah of N.C., to Robert Owen of Halifax Co., Va. - 150 acres (land adj. Stovall) witnesses: Richard Owen, Richard Wamock."


In the Mamie Gaskill McCubbins Collection this record is found.

Rowan Co. NC
Divison of Estates page 375: March 19, 1827, the negroes of deceased John W. Womack are divided among the heirs by order of Feb. court by A.R. Jones, Benjamin Brock, David McMahan, N.C. Hunt & Robert Jones, as follows:

Francis Williams & wife
Richard Dismukes

Who is this John W. Womack (Charles Womack's son??) and what kinship, if any, John W. Womack have to Sally Womack in this marriage record.
JOHN DISMUKES - SALLY WOMACK 26 November 1808 Halifax

Sarah age 67 in the following 1850 census is presented in one research effort as Sarah Chaffin, d/o Nathan Chaffin. Is she Sally Womack or Sarah Chaffin?

1850 Federal Census Davie Co. NC. 30 Aug 1850. page 407b

John Dismukes 77 M occupation-none b. Virginia
Sarah 67 F b. Virginia
Josiah B. Solomon 26 M Clergyman Baptist b. Franklin Co. NC
Mary 21 F b. Warren Co. NC

Notes for John DISMUKES (source: NC genweb project - Davie Co. NC)
His will dated 13 Dec. 1854, probated Nov. 1855. Davie Co. will book I:122. The will mentions his brother Richard Dismukes, late of Rockingham County.

Am looking for information on my grandfather, Crawford O. Summers. Son of Jonathan D. Summers and Catherine Odam. I know he married Daisy Roland, in Putnam Co. Missouri. Daisy was from Derby, Iowa. I would like to know anything about Jonathan D. Summers, or Daisy Roland. Thank you. Rae

Debbie Womack

I am trying to trace my family line beyond my grandfather. His name was James E Womack and he was born on June 6, 1918 (I'm pretty sure he was born in Arkansas, but it may have been in Tennessee). He died on September 18, 1996 in Ruhterford County, Tennessee.

The only thing I know about him is he was the only son of an only son and his father died when he was quite young.

If anyone has any information that can help me in my search, it would be greatly appreciated!

Someone had contacted me looking for information on Ed and Elizabeth Womack Bostick. I can not find the person who made the query. Am placing the Information here in hopes that person will see it.
Boone Cemetery, Hobbs , Lea co. NM
E.L. Bostick 1884-1962 "Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven"
Elizabeth Bostick April 4, 1882-November 18, 1971

The person who requested the information thought Ed/Edward and Elizabeth may have died in Texas.

Roger Womack

Debbie, James Edward Womack was born June 6, 1918 and married Vallie Pearl McPeak, he was the son of Charles Edward Womack, sp Sally Sullivan according to some information submitted by Vallie in one of those Womack books. "The Womack Family, Who's Who in America" printed by Family Archive Press back in 1994.
I don't know who fathered Charles Edward Womack. In the book Vallie said James Edward Womack grew up in Jackson Co., Alabama and Lebanon, Wilson Co., Tennessee. Perhaps someone out there has more information on this family.

Several weeks ago I received an inquiry concerning Wommacks in Cass County, TX

Sorry to take so long to respond, have been VERY busy here. Yes, both my aunt and uncle were legally blind, both had pink eyes, pure white hair and skin and both were infertile. The chances of 2 albino children is very rare, but after the 2, then the chances are that any following children will be too. But, my dad wasn't and that relly shook up the docs! LOL

I have been searching for years for Nancy Womack who was born about 1811 in North Carolina according to census records. She married Henry Christian and probably died in Jones Co., GA. I have searched marriage records for several
North Carolina counties but have not hit the right one yet. I would appreciate any information about this woman. Her first child was born about 1833.

I'm working on a longshot here.
My g-Grand mother Mary Elizabeth Womack B 1835-6 "Father Pleasant Womack" married William Counts Bowen.b. 1832.
They had the following children. Lousia,b.1864 William Jessey,b.1866 Joseph,b.1872 John,b.1875 James,b.1879 and Julia Ann,b.1880 my G-mother.
Joseph, John,or James was called 'Mass' I believe it may have been James. Since he lived longer than the other two and G-ma always talked about "Mass"
Is there any conection to-
Thomas Massey Womack B. Oct.9,1807 to Josiah Womack B.March 26,1771 and Mary 'Polly' Massey B.Aug.9 1783?
I found the latter on the Ancestral file {tm}-ver n149 in Salt Lake,

While searching cemeteries in Texas and Oklahoma last week I ran across a William Clinton Womack but didn't make a note of it. Here is the url I was searchimg, its not complete but getting better. Gary Webb and Gloria Mayfield are doing a good job on this. There are links on their site to Oklahoma and New Mexico. If there are any that can contribute listings I'm sure Gary would appreciate having them.
Guess I should post things like that in a FYI on the WGN when I find them, what say ye.

Michael Womack

Roger (? - Webmaster of this site) -

I have been referred to the site by another researcher who has found your site very helpful. I have conducted fairly extensive genealogical research in the _distant_past, but have literally not done so since I was a child in junior high school and early high school. To be honest, I don't even know what's prompting me to do this now . . . I suppose my contact with another person related to the Womack tree and reading the quote at the top your website is providing much of the momentary impetus: "However the name is spelled, we think we are all of the same parentage and are proud of the name." HECK of a quote.

Is there any link between what must be your massive tree and mine? I am particularly interested, if possible, in learning about my ancestors prior to Abraham, but am certainly also interested in getting a more comprehensive understanding of the Womack clan, in general. (Since I'm not at home, I'm going to recite the following information without the aid of my family tree in front of me - so please excuse my incompleteness. Hopefully, all of the information provided is, however, correct.)

Generation 1. My ggg grandfather's name was Abraham Womack. My father, who was a great one on reciting his ancestry and tales about his ancestors according to the tradition of the South, told me old Abe fought in the Revolutionary War. I think Abraham was born and died in Prince Edward County, VA. I have information about his wife and possible his other children at home. (His wife's last name may have been Cohen.)

Generation 2. My gg grandfather's name was Abner Womack. Offhand, I can't remember where he was born, but I do remember he was born in 1809. I think he may have been the individual that migrated to Mulenburg County, KY. (It is my understanding that Butler County, KY was later carved out of Mulenburg, and it is this county from which many of my ancestors come and many still live.) I believe Abner had a couple of wives and_many_children. I don't recall his wife's name offhand, although I have a record of the information at home. (She may have been a McCoy, but that lineage may come in on another family line.)

Generation 3. My g grandfather's name was James Lewis Womack. I believe he was born and died in Butler Co., KY. I believe he was married to Agnes Adkins. He had numerous siblings of whom I can account, but will not do so at this time.

Generation 4. My grandfather's name was Valice Monroe Womack. He was born in the late 1890's in Butler Co., KY and died in 1928 or 29 in Dallas (?), TX. He was married to Irene Genelle Givens. He had numerous siblings, of whom I can account, but will not do so at this time.

Generation 5. My father's name was Maurice Lynn Womack. He was born in Butler Co., KY. on June 18, 1922. He was married to Betty Rogene Gossard. He died in Springfield, MO on April 30, 1984.

Generation 6. My name is Michael Lynn Womack. I was born on December 24, 1958 in Freeport, IL. I have a brother, David Harry Womack, born October 11, 1960 in Iowa City, IA. I also have an adopted Korean sister, Nancy Ruth Womack, born March 5(?), 1962, Seoul, Korea. I am married to Elise Renee Hasselbring, born February 16, 1959 in Lake Forest, IL.

Generation 7. I have (2) children: Allyson Genevieve Womack, born February 2, 1992 in Lake Forest, IL. Christian David Wales Womack, born August 12, 1996 in Libertyville, IL.

Roger Womack

Michael, you were just about there, Abraham was the son of Thomas Womack, sp Mary Farley, son of Abraham b 1644 is the way I have it in my database. Abraham was the son of someone who immigrated here most of us have William at the top of our Womack ancestor files, but so far that has not been proven either. Some even argue that there was two Abrahams, this deed below would sure make you think that, I sure would like to see the original.

Michael, I forgot something, in your post you put James Lewis' father as Abner, and this is probably because you were doing this from memory. James father was Abraham Womack sp Octavia Amanda Pierson, then Abner and so on.

Me thinks I go tNGS korn-foosed with them othah peeps. Sorry...

And Roger, I see nothing wrong with the document that would make me think there would be two Abes - Abe Jr giving to Thomas and someone who transcribed got his signature before the witnesses signatures -- that is what appears to be the case here, methinks..

Hey Guys and Gals,
Please come to my rescue. I am trying to connect my Emma Womack b. 1857 Texas md. Colen Magouirk and lived in Fannin Co., Texas. Emma was the dau. of Newton Womack b. 1825 Tennessee or Missouri. Family members said Newton was the son of Larkin Womack b. 1785 in the St. Louis Missouri area. Larkin is found in Arkansas in the 1830's. Can anyone connect to these and help me?
Many thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

Linda, this 1850 census shows Newton age 24 living with Frances, Larkin had died in November of 1849. I have his full name as Isaac Newton Womack, b Aug 13, 1825 in Missouri. spouse Algana Garrett. I believe Larkin was the son of Johnson Womack, but that is just speculation on my part at this time.

Madison Co., Ark., 30 of October, 1837 - ",personally appeared" Johnson Wamack, aged 75 years. Volunteered in a militia company of "Horsemen!' commaned by Capt. Jonathan Kemp "'at an old field, Capt. Kemp's muster ground near Pleasant Gardens on the Catawba River" in Burke Co., NC about June 20, 1780. Marched to Caney Creek near county line of Rutherford Co., N. C. Here they were joined to other groups and altogether about 300 men placed under Col. Charles McDowel. (Long detail of service in Ga. and N. C. until he was discharged Oct. 25, 1780.)

Linda Z. Goff....

Hi Cuz! Larkin Womack, b. 1785 is my 3rd great grandfather. I am a descendant of his son, James Baldwin Womack. Newton Womack, born Isaac Newton Womack, 13 Aug 1825 MO, married Algana Garrett, 9 Dec 1853 in Panola Co., TX. One researcher has Emma Garrett as the wife of Colon Magourik, so I don't know if Emma was the dau. of Newton and Algana or if she belonged to Algana from a previous marriage.

I actually believe the children of Larkin Womack, b. 1785, were born in Arkansas. I have copies of letters on my data base written by Newton's mother which says she had given birth to thirteen children, but I can only account for twelve.

Please email me privately and we'll exchange info!

Re: Deed #67 pg. 134
Abraham WOMACK, Jr.
Recorded 1 Feb 1708

Abraham Womack born c1644 would have been about age 64 in 1708.
One 'assumes' this is the same Abraham, who patented land in 1691
"in the parish of Varina, and on the north side of Swift Creek: begg.
at the mouth of a run known by the name of the Cold Water Run".
If this is the same Abraham, in order for him to be a Junior his father
would have to be an Abraham also. Therefore, his father is Abraham
and not William married to the Allen lady; or his father is Abraham William
or William Abraham married to the Allen lady. But then, I have no proof
a William Womack married an Allen in this time frame.

From the timeline I have put together, the first I note of Senior or
Junior being used is 1692.

!1692 Abraham Womack Senr. [Patent 8: 216]
Varina Parish, 200 Acres of the 269 Acres purchased of Gilbert Deckon, land adjoins Gilbert Elam, Edward Stratton, Wm Clarke, Hugh Ligon, Thomas Shipey, Granerey road).

!1702/1703 - 17 February [Is it February or March? (dwc)] Abraham Womack witness to will of Mary Ligon. WB 1697-1704 pp. 365-367.
Witness my Hand & seal this 18th day of March Anno Dom 1702/03.
Mary Lygon (Seal of Red Wax).
Signed & Sealed in the presence of Abra: (X) Womack, John (X) Hatcher, John Brown.
Proved in open Court by the oaths of Mr. Abram Womack, Senr. & John Hatcher, two of the subscribed witnesses, to be the last will & Testament of Mrs. Mary Lygon, dec'd, & that at the time of her signing Sealing & Declaring, the same was of sound & perfect sence & memory to the best of their knowled~e

!1708 Deed #67 pg. 134 Abraham WOMACK, Jr., for love and affection, to my son, Thomas WOMACK, all my land on Coldwater Run and Swift Creek, 400 acres. Witnesses: William KENNON, Arthur MOSELY Signed: Abraham WOMACK Recorded 1 Feb 1708.

Another possibility: Abraham born c1644 deeded some of his land on Coldwater
Run to his son Abraham (I don't have any documents to indicate this happened)
and the courts and/or the Womacks refer to Senior and Junior to disquinish
between them. I show Abraham born c1644 had a son Abraham who had a son Thomas
but it is not the Thomas who married Farley.

I have wondered where Abraham got the land which is referred to in the
following patent of George Browning. This would be about 10 years before
I show he patented any land.

I transcribed this sometime ago, if I went back and took another look, I
might be able to decipher the writting better. The more of these I did, the
easier it became.

Note it joins Thos. Jones. In 1646 David Jones of Charles City Co VA was
granted land and a Margaret Weym'ke was listed as a headright.

The following is what I have tracking the land on the water course
mentioned. It is not meant to be all documents pertaining to Womack
land on Cold Water Run and/or on Swift Creek; but, just what I have put together at this writing. The Matthew Womack mentioned, I am not sure
this is not a different body of water than the other Cold Water Run.

Cold Water Run
is on north side of Swift Creek

Sometimes the thought processes when working on projects are akin to tunnel vision, so if anyone can see errors, I would be grateful for corrections.

I am a great grandson of Emma B. Womack. Emma B. Womack was born 9 Nov 1875 in Texas. I am looking for birth and death dates and places of her brothers and sisters. Her father was J.C. Womack who was born in 1835. The 1880 census indicates J.C. Womack was born in Ill.

Hi Folks,
