I started researching my family about a year and a half ago. I became a member of the DAR through my great-grandmother, Lillie Bell Womack. She was married to Runey Hammers in July 1900 in Butler county Kentucky. Her father was James Womack , born about 1841. Her mother was Martha Elizabeth Foster. From what I have been able to find I trace all the way back to Abraham Womack who was married to Elizabeth Stubblefield. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I just happened to fall into this website I went to White County Tennessee's listing and saw genealogy, clicked there looking for some information on my Cooper line and saw Womack and discovered a bunch of interesting stuff! I be interested in sharing what I have and of course hearing from anyone who can add to my meager history. Thanks,

I'm interested in finding out more about my great-grandmother,Lillie Bell Womack. She was born in April 1882 and was married in July of 1900 to Runey Hammers. They lived in Butler County Kentucky. Her father was James Womack , born in 1841 and her mother was Martha Elizabeth Foster, born in 1847. James died in 1928 and Martha died in 1910. I think that I've traced back to a William Womack and Mary Jane Allen, but it gets confusing. Are these the Womacks that you are referring to? Please let me know if you have any additional information. Thanks,
Lynda Hammers O'Driscoll

Lynda, I have James sp Martha Foster as the son of Chapman, son of Abner, son of Abraham sp Elizabeth, not Elizabeth Stubblefield as his son Abraham Jr. married Elizabeth Stubblefield, brother of Abner. I've always had questions about Elizabeth as the mother of all Abraham Sr's children as Abner was born in 1764, 38 years after his brother Abraham Jr., sp Elizabeth Stubblefield. Elizabeth would have been in her 50's when she had Abraham if she was only 16 when she married Abraham Sr. I think Abraham Sr., may have married two Elizabeth's which would account for the late birth of Abner. This could also account for Abraham Sr., being the Abraham that had the affair with Ann (Nancy) Blanton in between these marriages producing Thomas sp Louvisa Rice, and Archie Blanton.
This is just speculation on my part. Needs more research. RGW

Doretta/ Don Reece

We are new to doing genealogy on the computer and have been trying to find out how to go about it. We have been atudying the WGN Archives and learning to surf on the computer. While surfing Rootsweb we found a LUCRETIA WARNOCK who died before 1880 and buried in Selma, AL. She married about 1836 John Porter Bolding born 1815 and died 1884, son of James Marion Bolling/Bolding and grandson of John Bolling and Mary Tarpley. We have no proof of this, but checking the Bolling line back it seems that Lucretia's husband is a descendant of Pocahontas, so their children and descendants listed on eootsweb would be also. Is Lucretia a WOMACK? We also think our Miles Womack of Halifax co., VA is one of those Womacks that came here from outer space. We have yet to run across any more references of him. Anybody have any thing on him? HAPPY NEW YEAR. Don and Doretta

would like to thank you for the additional information you listed.

along with others in the group.

Paul N Womack

I'm looking at the First Census Of The United States, North Carolina,
Morgan District, Rutherford County (Page 118 specifically). The
population is divided into "companies" which are numbered. There appears to be between 70 & 100 people in each "company". I am specifically interested in Michael Tanner in the eighth company and Louisa Womack in the tenth Company. I believe his daughter Maria Esther Tanner married her son David Womack. Six "begets" later I came into the picture. But I digress......can anyone explain these "companies" to me?


Saturday, January 04, 2003 at 21:06:07 (PST)

I am looking for information on William J Womack born 1833 in Washington County Arkansas and his last wife Rebecca McDonald. They were married July 1889 in Parker County Texas. William died and their son Henry was born in April of 1890. Rebecca McDonald Womack then had a daughter Flurida or Florida Womack in 1894. Does anyone have any information regarding Rebecca and her children and who the Father of Flurida may have been? I have read where she might have married another Womack. She is my direct line. I would appreciate any help.

Hi everybody: We want to thank both Roger and Doris for sending data,and Mark also. Doris - Mark did tell us that our Miles was maybe a brother to his Henry, butwe were having trouble with E-mail, so don't know if there was other data sent. Anyway we hope we have the E-mail problem fixed. Weare not sure if was our computer and/or equipment or our trying to use it. It has been sinkor swim in this venture (I believe more sinking).
In our surfing on RootsWeb, we found a Rebecca Parker who married William WAMMOCK. Rebecca, daughter of Edward Parker who had a will dated 3 May 1819 and probated May 1821 Rowan Co. N.Car. This data was Jo Linn White's 1971,page55, ROWAN COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA WILL ABSTRACTS, put on RootsWeb by James Albury. (We are still trying to figure out how to note sources from the computer). Is this our Rebecca, wife of our William Womack born about 1762 and who died before 5 June 1829? Thanks again to everyone. Don and Doretta

If you would like copies let me know. Got some additional information from
them. I don't have alot of extra money, but would like to help in any way I can.I am turning 50 soon and it is so inportant to understand family history. Was away from searching for some time and am trying to get active again. To Roger, Sam, and Mark thank you so much for all the information you have brought to us all. It is greatly appreciated so very much I can't find the right words.

If your William is the on in WI I am thinking of, there is a photo somewhere around WGN on him and his wife - who very much appears to be an American Indian.

Happy New Year to all Wammocks!

I am searching for a verified listing of Albridgton “Britain” Womack, Sr.’s children and any information on his wife. I believe he had a son Wiley, although I cannot prove this, from which I decend. See my line as follows.

Constance Melissa Wammock Zager – 10/20/1968 (sp. Steven Arthur Micheal Zager)
Bennie Frank Wammock, Jr. – 6/12/1947 (sp. Constance Dean Ward)
Bennie Frank Wammock, Sr. – 6/21/1906 – 8/30/1982 (sp. Cilla Mae Smith)
Benjamin Enoch Wommack – 2/11/1869 – 5/10/1917 (sp. Georgia Rebecca Smith)
William Spencer Brantley Wommack – 1838 – 10/1917 (sp. Martha Carolina Jackson)
William Wommack -- 11/6/1809 – 9/7/1878 (sp. Mary Anne Brantley)
Wiley Womack – 1758 – 1830 (sp. Sarah Kendrick)
Albridgton Womack, Sr. – 1730 – 1817 (sp. Unknown)
William Womack – 1683 – 1776 (sp. Martha)
John Womack – 1653 – 2/1724 (sp. Mary Akin)
William B. Womack – 1607 – 1679 (sp. Mary Jane Allen)

It is Wiley that I am not sure about. In information found regarding Albridgton it lists Wiley as administrator of his will, but he’s not listed directly as a child. See below:

“Chatham Deed Book V, page 223 - 15 June 1808 - Albridgton Wommack of Chatham Cog,, to Willey Womack of same - 300 acres 300 Pounds - land in Chatham and Wake Cos., on both sides of Buckhorn Creek, adjoining Robert Jones, Jacob Levins. Signed by name. Witnesses: William Wommack, John Wommack, Sr. Proven Aug* 1818 by William Womack (John Womack, Sre, is deceased)”

“Albridgton, or Brittain, Womack, died in Chatham Co NC, in 1817, intestate, with Willie or Wiley Womack as his administrator. In 1819 the heirs presented a petition to the court: Archives, Raleighg No Co - Chatham County Estates Petition of the heirs of Britain Womack father of: Patsey Womack, Britain Womack, Tempie Womack, William Womack, Alexander Womack, Molly Womack, Merideth Womack, Nancy Womack, Perebee Womack, Winny Womack and Britain Womack (the younger), by his guardian, Thos. Barham All the foregoing versus Wiley-Womack, administrator (another heir of Britain Womack).”

Any help you could provide on Wiley or others is most appreciated.

Jean Reed Herbelin

I have been looking for information on Elijah T. Wommack son of James Alexander Womack III and Freelove Thompson. Elijah was married first to Lucinda Francina Marler they were the parents of my great grandmother Flora Belle Wommack.

After the 1880 TN census they had a daughter, Arizona or Zona as she was called. I have not found her death certificate yet. But she was still living in Oklahoma City in Dec. 1951 according to her brother George Wommack’s obituary. But had remarried to a man with the last name that has been spelled in George’s obit as Mrs. I. M. Rhodel of Oklahoma City (George W. Womack, Joplin News Herald, Dec. 10, 1951) and Mrs. Zana Rhoad of Oklahoma City ( from the obit of step brother, L. L. Womack, Joplin Globe Mar. 23, 1950)

They had also had at a daughter born March 06, 1886 in the Indian Territory after they left TN. She was Sabrina Clinton or Clinton Sabrina. She was called Clinton. I have Clinton’s death certificate from CA. Her daughter Lula Linam was the informant on it. Eliga T Wommack / Tennessee was listed as father. Frances Marlin/ Tennessee was listed as mother. I don’t know if her name was Sabrina Clinton or Clinton Sabrina, but in 2 census she was listed as Sabrina and 2 as Clinton.

Anyone that can help me with how to find more information on Zona Wommack and how to find the right spelling of her last name would be appreciated of her second husband. I don’t know if there are any city directories for Oklahoma City for 1950 and 51, just in case her husband initials really were I. M.

Anyway below are the censuses I have found for the families of Elijah.

More info. on Thomas Womack of Canton, Ny. His name on Civil war papers is spelled Wormac. But when he collected his benifits he spelled it Womack. Maybe he changed it or it was an error?

Ann McDonald

David, that info from Barbados is all I found - just that one tidbit from the abstract. Normally, if there was more info in the original, like location, the abstractors would have put something like "from xysts" in the abstract as well. I see from my notes that I actually saw it originally some 4 or so years ago and then promptly forgot it, but it is kind of interesting.

Ann. Thought so. Thanks. David.


Saturday, January 11, 2003 at 06:35:18 (PST)

If I remember, there was a Henry Womack, merchant, in England around the time frame of the Barbados incident? Could it be possible he may have been the one there doing business, but never set foot here?? Or, could his name have been on a document there without him ever being there?? Stranger things have happened!!

Mary E. Stephens Brewer

Hi, I am looking for info. on my great-grandfather and great-grandmother.
James Green (Berry) Womack married on 6-21-1892 Clara Eliza Hunstock.
James-born1-10-1868 died 5-4-1940 Clara-born11-23-1872 died 7-4-1933 They
had 10 children; one of which is my grandmother Ollie Hunstock Womack Stephens.
Like to know where they lived, what they did for a living.?? How did my
grandmother end up being born in Baton Rouge,LA (or so we believe) When did
James Green move to LA. from where we think he was born in Franklin Co. MS

Bob Moore

Ann: I have seen the reference to Henry Womack in the Barbados
records but in reading the abstract I thought it meant that the planter who had died owed money to the tailor business in London which Henry Womack operated. Bob


Sunday, January 12, 2003 at 20:50:15 (PST)
David Dunn

Bob, Ann and Sam et al. Bob could be right. Unless there is something else in the full text, that Henry could be Henry the merchant tailor of London (or any other merchant of that name)the son of the Rev. Henry of Ellingham etc. We know from his dad's dates that Henry of London was born c.1600 +/- 10 years so he'd be 57+/- in 1657.

Jo Anne Hillsbeck

In item 3 of your Womack genealogy, you list "Russell Clarke wants the ancestry of Abner B. Womack............daughter Margaret married a Hillsbeck". I question the name "Hillsbeck". There were several families in the south who were named Hilsabeck or Hilsenbeck, but the "Hillsbeck" spelling is somewhat unusual. I have only found a "Laura Hillsbeck" and a "John Hillsbeck" in Texas in 1870. Otherwise the only "Hillsbeck" family I am aware of is in New York and Germany. Mr. Clarke might have better success tracing his family links through the other spellings which are quite well documented on the internet. Thank you.

I am looking for the registrar for the birth certificate of a Robert Edward Womack.

His son Walter Spencer Womack married to a Violet Margaret Womack born in South Africa.
Walter was descended from Robert Edward Womack in England who had come to SA from Somerset England.????
I am looking for his birth regitration particulars of Robert Edward Womack


Monday, January 13, 2003 at 12:25:46 (PST)

Doretta & Don,

I have seen the Rebecca Parker information on the net and searched some on
the net for more on this Rebecca Parker & William Womack, but I have found
nothing conclusive. There is no marriage in Halifax Co VA for a William
Womack & a Rebecca that I can find. Mark's research of Halifax Co VA
death records showed Rebecca as the mother of her son Henry at his death.


Monday, January 13, 2003 at 13:08:47 (PST)
Bob Reese

Re. William who married Rebecca Parker. I have always been led to believe that the William who married Rebecca Parker was the son of Thomas and Sarah Owen Womack and that Thomas died about 1800 in Rowen Co., NC. William and Rebecca moved on to Illinois (with a stop somewhere in TN) where he is found in the 1818 IL state census. In 1820 census Rebecca is shown as the head-of-household, indicating that William had died prior to this census. Rebecca is also enumerated in IL in the 1830 federal census. Let me know if my info is in error.


Monday, January 13, 2003 at 20:01:34 (PST)

Bob, I haven't done any personal research on William Womack & Rebecca
Parker or Thomas Womack and Sarah Owen. The only thing I have is some
of what is on the net. I am aware that Thomas Womack and Sarah Owen
had a son named William, but I didn't have a wife for him. I didn't mean
to imply that William and Rebecca (unknown) Womack of Halifax was the William and Rebecca (Parker) of Rowan Co NC. Sorry if I wasn't clear. I actually
don't think they are the same. What little I found on the net about the
couple from Rowan Co NC wasn't of any help in finding the surname of Rebecca
married to William Womack of Halifax Co VA.

What I have on Thomas and Sarah (Owen) Womack indicates a connection to
Halifax Co VA and information on some of their children indicates a
connection to Isham Reves, William Cole, James Cole, and Warren Co KY,
in addition to Rowan Co NC. A possibility that this line could go back to Lunenburg Co VA. Nothing I have on this line is personal research;
therefore, I can't tell you if what you have on William and Rebecca
(Parker) Womack is correct or incorrect.

Vickie, Thanks for the new spelling of our surname, I haven't seen this spelling before. These two may be brothers, both their parents were born in England and both lived close to each other in Canton, New York.

Dang Rog!
That spelling is one of the 85-87 I identified before - it was one from England I found year or two back - I need to find my disk with the different spellings and when I do, I am posting every one of them here -


Tuesday, January 14, 2003 at 20:52:40 (PST)
Roger Womack

Sorry Sam, I didn't remember that one. I went back to my 1880 census and put in Wyomack and there they were. If they are brothers, John was born in England and Thomas was born in Canada, mom and dad immigrated sometime between 1830 and and 1838, you would think we could find a record on them. I think I will look on my 1881 British Census and see what I come up with that spelling, never tried that one, I'll send you what I get on that Sam.


Tuesday, January 14, 2003 at 22:21:01 (PST)


Note: Checking on Wormeck, it is definitely German - all the names of the
parents - two sets are of German origin.. I also found one Womack, a female,
born in Brandenburg, Germany around the late 1890's. I have previously
found a Womack male born in or around Berlin, Germany, late 1890's also.
I also found sometime back a female Womack born in 1818 or thereabouts in
Denmark -

There are 39 variations in England alone!!


Germany one other possible - WOMBECK

One I found on 1895 IA state census--WOMACHKA, husband and
wife both born Bohemia(CZECH) You might find this interesting

There are others I think I have found on the censuses, but will have
to check them against this listing....


Wednesday, January 15, 2003 at 04:59:01 (PST)


The more and more I think about things. I do believe the family I have been looking for may be out of this Wyomack line. Canton is just so close to the canadaian border I think my family came here from Canada. I will have to see if I have the census avail. to me and look a little deeper. If you have any more info on this line could you let me know. I am still looking for Thomas Womack b.1838. d. 1918 in Canton. Have not found them on the Census for the area. I looked thru over 200 pages yesterday and didn't find a one. Just the Wyomack's. Thanks, Vickie "I know for Fact he was born there".

Wednesday, January 15, 2003 at 05:01:48 (PST)

OH I forgot. They did drop the Y in the 1920 Census. So they did change it to Womack from Wyomack like I thought!

Thanks, Michael Moseley.


Thursday, January 16, 2003 at 10:21:13 (PST)

Thank You Roger for the email. I will continue to work on that line and see what I can come up with. I am new at this so time will tell. Can you suggest any programs I should buy to aid in my search, or Not to buy. It seems like every page I look at there is someone trying to sell you a disk of some sort. I do think I will need one for England at some point. Any ideas you or anyone might have?

Gary McAnulty

Hello Everyone,
I am looking for some information on a resident of Russelville,Arkansas. His name was Ira Dalton McAnulty.DOB: 10/7/1914 in Russelville,Arkansas. Father's name:Sarce Monroe McAnulty his Mother's Maiden Name: Nancy McIntyre. Ira married a lady named Jo Ella McCaffrey in Russelville in 8-31-1935. He has numerous relatives in Russelville,his sister's name is Mary Duvall and has a brother named Roy McAnulty who I believe is deceased. Both of these relatives have sons and daughters still in Russelville.
I am compiling data for a family tree for my daughter who is going to have a baby and I wanted to find out more data on where her roots are and where her people are from. I am at an impasse to any information on who Sarce and Nancy's relatives are? There was an accidental poisoning of the family back in 1932-1934
and most of the family history was wiped out!!! If you have any information I would truely love to share it I can be reached at Gary.McAnulty@ejgallo.com or Gary McAnulty 600 Yosemite Blvd. Modesto,California 95353.
PLEASE!!! If you have any information I would love to have it....GOD BLESS.

James Womack

Hello everyone! I have really enjoyed the WGN message board. Through this medium I have found out so much about my family history and where I came from. It has bridged a gap between my 84 year old grandfather and me. He has confirmed every single detail that I have learned from this web site. I can not express to you what that means to me. I check the board everyday to see what people are discussing, and lately I found myself studying history from the regions where my direct line came from. This leads me to ask this question. What places would you guys suggest that I visit on my vacation this Summer that would take me back to my family's past? Virginia? North Carolina? or should I go somewhere in Tenn.? I look forward to hearing your responces, and thanks for keeping this web site such a good place to go everyday.


Thursday, January 23, 2003 at 08:47:24 (PST)

Well Rog, and all,
Got my response from the NRO in UK - gonna cost me 15.50(thats lbs) for the wills of Arthur and Henry - 4 sheets Arthur, 5-Henry - I can get a complete register of South Lopham on Microfiche for 33.00 + postage -- the registers for North Lopham and the Archbishops/bishops returns are ony available by photo copy and costly -- will keep posted if anyone is interested?

Tracie WoMack Easterling

I can't believe it!!! I started a family tree for my daughter this summer. I now have 495 people in my tree! I am very excited about reaching 500.

I still can't find anyone connected with my Womack branch, but it will come one day. My dad told me a few months ago that he had some family papers he was going to copy and send me the originals. After he copied them, he misplaced ALL of it :( So everyone pray he finds them!

I now have a photo of my grandfather that no one else will claim. His name is Herman Kemph Womack. I know he isn't showing in anyone's tree, but if you want a copy for Womack records, feel free to e-mail me.

Sam, my ISP is blocking mail going out to your ISP, so if you drop me a line at my Yahoo account, perhaps that'll work. That sounds like about $75US. Did they say if they had it ready to go or if it would take them another year to bother to send it? Ann


Saturday, January 25, 2003 at 03:58:06 (PST)

Checked the currency conversion as of today and the wills would be 25.22 US
the microfiche about 54.00 US - as far as sending, the lady that sent the Email
said for me to send my postal addy and they would go from there - it appears they will send as soon as get it -- then I gotta figger where I can get an international money order in brit pounds! from what I gather, they send and bill at the same time - told me to send no money rightaway---The response I got from them was less than a week - which I figger is pretty good --

I got the Lopham book from Amazon.uk (well the book store they found it in)in about 20 days. they billed my visa and that was about 20 pounds or around 33 bucks at the current rate - not bad for a book graded fine/fine but looks brand new!! Except for the photos and a little text, Rog and I have the pertinent genealogy from it anyway..

The North Lopham registers and whatever are not fiched and will require a researcher - which means specifics need to be given rather than an at random. So I wonder if all Womacks of any spelling is specific enuff?? Time will tell as to what is wanted and needed of the material there -- According to the Lopham book, few families had roots in both Lophams at the same time - there apparently was a bitter rivalry between the two; but the Womacks did manage to have roots in both places..just not sure which one had they had the major roots in..and the book did mention that they came there from the East Dereham area or something to that affect..so have an inquiry in on E Dereham also--

If you will note added another e mail addy here - dont know the problem with sending to the other one; but the one above will work also - and I have 8 or 10 others in case that is a problem!

Anyway, anyone know where I can get a reasonably priced fiche reader?? Preferably one that reads and prints also? And please, dont say E bay. Had a run in with them and not too comfortable with that mode of acquiring.

Saturday, January 25, 2003 at 11:52:17 (PST)
Tracie WoMack Easterling


I know it would be more convenient to have a fiche reader at home, but have you checked with your library about using theirs?



Saturday, January 25, 2003 at 17:51:12 (PST)

It appears MSN has a problem with MSN and Hotmail email - also, Excite.com also having a problem - the e mail pages will not load -- I can receive on the above and samsawadee@aol.com so far - and,

Tracie I realize that I can probably get to a library with a reader, or to an FHC with reader printer -- I have found I can get a used reader for $134 including shipping - I can get a hand held cheaper -- not sure which way I want to go - did find a school or library offering one for free so e-mailed and offered to pay postage if they would ship UPS. Providing, of course, it wasnt jumped on the first time it was offered!!

Anyway, not sure I am gonna order the fiche - at least not until I see and example of what is on them and they are not just index cards or something! As they say in the commercials, "da real thang baby!"

Vickie Kemak


You were right! The line I posted is mine. I have been lucky enough to find others working on the same line. Now we all are stuck on John and Elizabeth Wommack/Wyomack. All we know for sure is that they came from England to Canada to NY. Thanks for all the help you give others. All of you do a wonderful job! Where would be the best place to start looking for records in England? Any ideas would be grateful.


Monday, January 27, 2003 at 08:54:18 (PST)

go to www.womackonline.co.uk browse thru and see if you can find any of your line - if you do and have anything to add, let me know so I can connect the dots! thanks


Tuesday, January 28, 2003 at 18:26:41 (PST)

Got the E mail straight - seems after awhile Zone Alert Pro gets too big fer its britches and starts playing games -- I turned off and, voila! msn and excite were ok - downloaded the freebie Zone Alert and no problem either - moral of story, who says the best things in life you pay for them, the old one still applies, the best are still free ---

AND, by the way another Womack spelling -- Womace - how is that now Rog, about 90??

Claytie, I have John Newton Womack, as the son of Thomas Jasper Womack, sp Elizabeth Blanton, Thomas was the son of Anderson and Fannie, son of Thomas and Louvisa Rice.

Roger Hagans, I have a marriage record of Jesse Hagan and M.O. Womack, Feb 10, 1892 in Sumner Co., TN. I do not have a connection to her in my database, maybe someone else does.


Thursday, January 30, 2003 at 18:30:35 (PST)

For Roger Hagans:

The following is tenuous, I found it at GenForum and saved it because of
the surnames Womack and Martin. I wrote the poster, but he didn't respond.
If it helps great, if not it is always worth a try.

Bernard Hagan m. Mararet Spurlock
13 October 1814 Henrico Co VA
'Probably the father' of Charles Henry Hagan born about 1821 in VA.
Charles Henry Hagan m. Clara (unknown)
Joseph Benjamin Hagan m. Barbara Topp
Joseph b. 12 November 1852 VA
Charles Henry Hagan m. Mary Francis Womack
Charles b. 26 October 1891 Huntington WVA
Mary b. 08 July 1897 Greenbrier Co WVA
Mary's father:
William Watson Womack m. Caroline Catherine Hall

Caroline b. 08 October 1865
Charles Henry Hagan m. Mary Mercedes Martin
Charles b. 26 June 1921

Roger, I can't tell you how accurate this information is. I believe I
found it on the Hagan Forum.

I planning on posting pictures that I have of my g-grandparents Jacob "Moore" & Charity Elizabeth "Lizzie" (Peters) Womack from Alexandria. LA as soon as I can. Moore is the son of Albert (A.G.B) Womack and grandson of Jacob "Jake" Womack & Keziah Middleton (Copiah, MS) (some have her as a Beard.

HELP! I am looking for Womack family history in and around Emmanuel County, Georgia. I am married to the great grandson of Mrs. Mary Ruby (Womack) Wilson. She is the daughter of Abigail (Bunn) Womack and James Madison Womack. James is the son of Thomas Han Womack Jr. and Rebecca (Lewis) Womack. Thomas Jr. is the son of Thomas Han Womack Sr. and Eleanor (Jones) Womack. Thomas Sr. is the son of William Womack and Elizabeth (?) Inman Womack. I have names of the children of William and Elizabeth, but I cannot find any relations further than Willaim and Elizabeth.

Does any one out there know anything?

I do know that my group is realted to Valeria Womack who married Charles R. Tondee and had a daughter named Valeria S. Tondee who married Aurelius Allen. Research has been done on this family by someone out there because I can find the Tondee lineage on the Womack web site. If you are a Tondee or Allen and can help, please e-mail me.
