We probably descend from the same line.......Larkin Womack, b. 1785, and Frances Basye Quick . Their son, James Baldwin Womack, m. Evaline Carter. Their son, William N. Womack, m. Elizabeth Leota Lawson. Bill Womack and Lizzie migrated to Holdenville, Hughes Co., OK ca. 1908. I believe Clyde descended from Newt E. Womack listed by our cousin, Max L.Womack on this web page 11 Feb 2001.

"Holdenville,Oklahoma. Hughes County:
William (Bill) Womack db 01-17-1860 dd 01-01-1932
Wife Elizabeth _______ db 09-25-1865 dd 11-27-1941
They had 11 children
Amos Womack db 09-24-1881 dd 09-11-1882
J.N. Womack db ---29-1883 dd 03-27-1930
Newt E. Womack db 01-22-1886 dd 03-02---?
Frances Womack db 05-14-1888 dd 07-19-1967
Ode E. Womack db 04-19-1890 dd 01-09-1969
R. Ed Womack db 07-14-1892 dd 05-13-1951
George O. Womack db 09-28-1894 dd 01-27-1967
Lilly (Taylor) Womack db 12-29-1896 dd 04-24-1963
Clara Womack db 12-22-1899 dd------?
Adline Womack db 02-02-1902 dd ------?
Vida Phelps (Jeff) Womack db 05-28-1904 born at Houston, Ark. or Fort Smith,
dd 11-18-1961 at Pawnee, Oklahoma." These records are from the Bible of a descendant of Vida Phelps (Jeff) Womack. My grandmother was Frances Womack, dau. of Bill and Lizzie.

Our cousin, Rick Womack, posted several times on in Sep and Oct of 2000 regarding his great grandfather. One of the facts he had been told about his Womack X?ggrandfather was he was killed by a train. At the Jeff Womack family reunion last year in Pawnee, OK, I learned that Newt, son of Lizzie and Bill Womack, was killed by a train. There have been a number of posts on this web page from members your line. I will email you with this data.

Fred, I feel like we can go back several more generations in our line if we had a straight line male descendant willing to submit to Womack DNA testing. At present there are 16+ participants. Robert Burke ( is the administrator of this project. Jack Womack ( is the co-administrator. The Womack Surname DNA project can be found at Please consider participating in this worthy project. I will gladly provide any data you might need. We can document back to Larkin Womack, b. 1785, and there is further documentation available, which I hope to have in the near future.

On February 26th, 2004 your news at nine did a segment on bisexual men,called men on the downlow. I found it intresting and would like to see it again, can you email the story to me.

Methinks the lady below is referring to and got us mixed up with tv station WGN which I think is in Chicago???

Tuesday, March 02, 2004 at 19:01:42 (PST)

Hoping someone can help identify the wives of Jacob (Jake) Womack who was b. ca 1812, St. Helena Parish, LA. His parents were Richard Mansel IV/Martha UNK. Jacob moved to Copiah Co., MS and appears to have married twice. There appears to be considerable confusion on just who Jacob did marry. Several sites identify first wife as Elizabeth Katie Goings and second wife as Keziah UNK as shown on 1850 Copiah Co., MS census. Seeking to identify who Keziah's family was. Jacob Womack and Keziah UNK were the parents of Jefferson Davis Womack, b. 1848, Copiah Co., MS - my gr.grandfather. Any info. would be appreciated.

RE: Womack DNA Prpject
First of all no bad stuff on Robert or any one else - but we got ripped off by the damn blokes over there - From what I gather we may have two or more lines with the same surname?? Ger real?? too many grannies messing around !! No way!!

We were all honest but in the end got screwed - they owe all of us participants a recheck with an independent lab of our choosing at their expense - I cannot accept 18 markers when 21 were promised no zeros and etc - that is incompetence - cheeze using kids in training to do this?? Well at least we know we know are cousins even if the damn brits dont!

Darrel and Judy Womack

When are we going to see who is related and who is on the side, we know that Roger and Darrel are one marker off. Yet they are a different line back, so they are related back there some place, but where. The only link in Darrels line that we have a bad link is " Richard to Martha " about 1800. No proof of marriage.Will Robert be getting the information put on the DNA web page pretty soon. Sam I don't know what happen to your DNA, but you do need to find out if what they found is the same some place else, or they need to redo yours free with a very careful check and follow through by the teachers not the students.
Sam I'm glad that you didn't leave WGN, we need you to keep us on our toes. I hope that when you have your DNA done again you get the answer you want.

Donna "Womack" Hyland

I am starting to research my family history. My father's name was Donald Lee Womack died in 1967. My mother is Anna M. Foster (maiden name). I was born in 1966. Not much info on his side of family as he was not married to my mother. I know that he had a wife and son with MS?. I know that he worked as a milkman. He lived in Georgia and Downey California before his death. He also had leukemia and died the year after my birth. He was in the military during WWII(I think). His father's name was Arthur, I have a bible with his name in it. I think he was from OK, not positive about this.

I am only looking to find out more about my history for me and my children so we can do a family tree and just have more info on this part of our heritage. Anyone with any information would be appreciated. I know it is not much but maybe some one knows something. Thank you very much.

Wednesday, March 03, 2004 at 13:55:14 (PST)

Going to try and go with a DNA place that does up to 37 markers - will probably just go for the first 25 which, from their web page, includes the 21 that most of you guys got -- it also includes a check for native american whtever in the dna - that should prove interesting as there is a small possibility as back in the late 1700's a GGG-GF had a brother was one-half as evidenced by an old diary I have seen that particular page from- he may have been a half brother as their father had 3 wives, one being an indian woman, poss of the Tuscaroras in NC --

"A Shot in the Dark" Looking for my grandmother, Larence? Womack b. ? d.5/9/1908 in Fulton County, GA. I think she was living in Fulton County. She died soon after giving birth to William Roy Webb. Clarence and William are listed on the 1910 Fulton census.
She was married to Clarence Walker Webb, Had one child William Roy Webb,
Not sure of the spelling of Larence. Could be Larens, Laurence, Lawrence, Laurens, Just not sure.

After looking an participating in this dna crap - methinks it is all BS and a hype to make money for someone - There is no sure way to connect a family line and the y crap has nothing to do with it; or else -- oh lets dont get into that stuff - WE ARE RELATED BY SURNAME, DIFFERENT SPELLINGS FER SHURE, GUT RELATED!

I'm looking for the Meek Womack connection. In Roger Womack genealogy connection to James Garner (the actor) he shows that Abbie Lillian Womack married a Charley Meek. Their daughter, Mildred, was mother to James Garner. My dad's mother was a Meek from the Norman Oklahoma area and I've always been told that they were related to James Garner. I'd like to know more information to help me make a connection. My ggrandfather was George Frank Meek. He had a brother Abner. George Meek was known as Frank and his wife was Tilla Meek.
I would also like to know if anyone knows the Cherokee connection of Mildred and Charley Meek.
Thank you.

Help! I am writing a book about my direct and collateral Civil War ancestors, Union and Confederate. I am a direct descendant of William Womack(Jr)b. 1710, and therefore would like to include Archer Womack, grandfather of my childhood hero, Roy Rogers! Does anyone know for sure which Confederate unit Archer Womack served with? I cannot find him in the NARA records. What was his full name? Thank you!

I have two anouncements:

1) I have just updated the "Final Report" page for the DNA project ( It is not really final yet, because I have yet to hear from Brian to get his permission to share his results. However, I have grouped everybody else, and wrote a little about the DNA relationships. There is a lot more to say, but this is a start.

2) I have just finished transcribing every Womack I could find in the census records from 1790 thru 1840 ( I've been slowly working on this for a very long time, and I finally finished. Also, found a few more people in the 1850 census. Word to the wise, do not trust the census indexes at, they are missing a lot of folks who are in the normal census index books.

Hi folks - While going through some old flooded papers and mag., I found the following which I thought some Womack researcher would be interested in. CSA - Confederate States of America Roll of Company "E", 2nd. Battalion Mounted Rifles. #1. Jno. T. Wammack, Pvt., enlisted Aug.10,1862 at Piketon, Ky. #2. Jackson Womack, Pvt., enlisted Sept.15,1862 at Pickton, Ky. My source is: Estill County Kentucky's Historical and Genealogical Society Newsletter. Vol.XIII, February 1994, Number 9, pg.85. (Published in Irvine, Ky.) I hope this note is helpful to someone. Doretta

catherine cilli

There is only one reason and one reason only that the community, neighbors, church, schools, and employers did not know what was happening at the address of poor Seamus, who was found dead at twenty three pounds is because they did not want to know or did not care to find out. The signs were there there. Shame on us and Shame on society.

Tuesday, March 16, 2004 at 03:35:39 (PST)

I wonder if that last name cilli = silly as it sure was a silly post!!

Jack Womack

The previous post by CILLI that does not make sense would be one that I would run from. The e mail address is not complete, notice there is no dot before the net. That coupled with the nonsensical message leads me to wonder if this an attempt to get someone to correct the address and send a mail to inquire about the subject. WARNING to do so may present you with an unwanted gift.
The latest info on virus and malware warns me that there are gangs of script writers conpeting between themselves to see who can get the most virus going, NetSky the worst ever has had the source code published to the web and the morons are writing variants and spreading them at an unheard of rate.
Any 12 year old kid can copy and change the source code to create a variant.
That message should say "Use With Caution"

You are certainly right on Ancestry's census stuff - I found in one instance in Arkansas they left out White Woodruff and Yell counties - and in others only partial indexing when they say they have full indexes for those years -- Also many names were mispelled that were clearly shown on the images - for instance, on the 1880 census for Jackson Co AL, they have my G-GF as Womsck - it clearly is Womack on the image -- ah well, someone had to have a job even if as a transcriber..

Sunday, March 21, 2004 at 08:22:27 (PST)

I have been doing some cleaning up of my data base, etc and have found a lot of things that shouldnt have happened -
I.E. GEDCOM = Genealogy Exchange Data COMmunication (as I remember)
Unfortunately that is not always the case - Right now I am merging from three data bases into one -- I have ran into as many as 2 to 12 names that are excact dupes - no, I am not saying that is the cause of anything but perhaps good old FTM who couldnt merge toilet paper you know where -- however, come of those merges could have been handled easier if:

Do not use punctuation in names or places unless necessary:

i.e. James D. Jones will not merge with James D Jones
Nor will White Co., TN or White Co. TN merge with White Co TN

Use of such entries as James D. /Jones Jr/ will not mergge with another
data base using James D Jones Jr or, the easier one James D Jr Jones which
aligns perfectly alphabetically with the Jones gang.

Using a date such as: era 1810, and I have the same exact dupe data on this person except I have 1810 in the date only; will not merge --

I realize each person has their own way, and perhaps rightfully so. But to exchange data among ourselves, we need to clean up some data bases --

Personally, I abhor punctuation unless absolutely necessary; I.E.
White Co TN looks cleaner than Whitec Co., TN or even White Co. TN.
I would use if the city were there: Jonesville, White Co, TN

Punctuation in correspondence, business or otherwise, is passe and mostly
unnecessary unless to break uplistings or ending sentences -- Not only will
your printouts look cleaner; they will take much less space in the long run.

Also correct usage of State/country abbreviations is absolutely necessary unless you want to spell out the name completely - AK is not Arkansas; GY is not Germany (DE is tho I think the US Postal book has GE and GM)- AR is not Arizona -- Neb is not the abbreviation for Nebraska -- is the US abbreviation listings - are the country codes
Tho not shown Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales come under the UK.
Ireland is a stand alone country.

I dont know how many of you use FTM; but, frankly, I wish there were one that could read excact dupes - I have set mine up from about 2.5 thru 11.0 with my own data duplciated and it has failed on 100% of the occasions to merge the data together - there were no mistakes anywhere in the d still trying to figger out how I got about 12 dupes on some names when there were only 3 data bases merges and no dupes in them??

Any suggestions or comments - feel free to post or send to me - the above address is good as is: - --

Debra Marshall

I have been trying to find information on a great grandmother. I am not sure how to spell her last name, Wommach, Wommack or Womack ?
The info I have is Laura Ellen Wommach? (grandmother) was born to Daniel Morgan and Nancy Jane (Conover) Wommach in Cloumbia, Kentucky on 10-15-1873, they moved to Wakenda Missouri when she was very young. She had 3 sisters, and 4 brothers. She married Samuel Gultry McGrew not sure of date, had 2 sons and (adopted) 1 girl. She passed away 4-13-1956 in or around Ralls County Missouri.
Any information would be appriciated.
Thank You.

Monday, March 22, 2004 at 17:29:08 (PST)

For Debra Marshall:

Daniel Morgan Womack, 19, and Nancy Jane Cownover [Conover], 22, both born Adair Co. KY, were married there on 28 August 1872 by S.H. Vire. (Columbia is the county seat of Adair County.)

In the 1860 Adair County KY census record (as compiled by Michael C. Watson, 1988), District Two, Household # 29:

Womack, Harison, 30, born KY
Womack, Anna, 25, born KY
Womack, Nancy L., 3

Harrison Womack married Annie Bryant on 11 April 1852 in Adair Co. KY.

In the 1850 Adair County KY census record (as compiled by Mrs. Randy H. Flowers and Michael C. Watson, 1986), District Two, Household # 386:

Womack, Jesse, born VA
Womack, Delila, 47, born NC
Womack, Mehala, 23, born KY
Womack, William, 15, born KY
Womack, Milton, 12, born KY
Womack, Morgan, 6, born KY

Jesse Womack and Delila Blair, "dau. of James" were married 7 may 1821 in Adair Co. KY. Delila Blair was the daughter of James & Nancy Blair, who moved from North Carolina to KY around 1814. They apparently moved first to Cumberland County KY, then about 1817 to that part of Adair County which became part of Russell County KY (in 1826.) James & Nancy and Jesse & Delila are buried in the Blair Family Cemetery near the Blair Schoolhouse community in Russell Co.

A transcription of Jesse's will (as posted on the Adair Co. web site):


[Note: This Jesse Wamack/Womack (c. 1796 VA - c. 1863) was the son of William Womack and Rachel Gilpin. He married 7 May 1821 in Adair County KY Delila(h) Blair (c. 1802 - after mid-1880), a dau. of James and Nancy Blair. Jesse's estate was finally settled in May 1867; the settlement was recorded July 1867 in Adair County Will Book I, pg. 252.]

(Some punctuation added for clarity; original spelling maintained.)

Adair County KY Will Book H, pp. 204-05.

W.R. Bill Morrow

Does anybody know who Archabald Womack is, he appears in the 1790 census Rowan Co NC Salisbury Dist, pg 314? On that same page is Abraham Womack and Richard Womack. I think Abraham is the Abraham who died 1804 in Lincoln Co NC, and my ancestor. He had two illegitimate sons, Archee Blanton and Thomas Womack. Could the Archabald Womack be Archee Blanton? Abraham died 1804 and only mentioned Abraham Jr and Abner, leaving Archee & Thomas out of his will. Archee might have changed his name in spite? Maybe I'm reaching too far, but tracing Archee Blanton is like tracing a ghost, not hardly anything found.

I am looking for the marriage date for Helen C. Keeler to Mr. Kinnie. They married before 1871, probably in Onondaga Co, NY. They had two children, Cleveland and Fannie Kinnie. Both children lived by 1880 with relatives of the mother.

Karen Wilson

My great grandmother Vera Goldin Married a G. L. Womack on Dec 9 1898 in Haralson County GA. Vera and G. L. Womack had two children. My grandmother Eva Viola and her brother Henry. Vera died Nov 1904 in AL. G. L. Womack known by the Goldens as Lester was unable to care for the children (according to family stories) and allowed Vera's father Rueben F. Golden to adopt Viola and Henry. G. L. Womack returned to GA and remarried and had at least one child a girl. My father who was born in 1933 remembers meeting G. L. Womacks widow and her daughter when he was a young boy. I am searching for any information on G. L. Womack.

I ran across a 1656 land patent with the name Capt Womnell/Capt Wombnell. Has anyone ever seen this as a spelling/pronunciation variation of our name? Excerpt below:

Ann McDonald

Quickly checking the land records that appears to be Thomas Wombwell, who was in VA by 1642, and his son Thomas who was in Isle of Wight by 1672. They had 650 acres known as Timberneck on the Blackwater. No clue if there is any connection at all with the Womacks, their name is found as Womble as well.

I am looking for the parents of Edward Crockett Womack b. Jan. 18, 1891 in Louisiana. In 1920 census he was in Dallas, Texas. He married Delia Terhune. Also looking for information about his children, John Joseph Womack and Leonard Lee Womack (both born in Texas) born abt. 1918 and 1920.

Pat, I believe Edward Crockett Womack, was the youngest son of Thomas Monroe Womack, and Mary Catherine Caskey. He was born in 1891 so he is not in the 1880 census below. If you would like more info on this line get in touch.

Looking for information regarding my Father James Frank Womack--born about 1925 from Texas. Divorced Flora Edwina Simons in 1947.

I was born in Silver City New Mexico August 5 1946--never knew my Father or any Womacks for that matter

About one Sara E. Womack going to Floyd Co. Georgia.

SMITH-Womack Connection?

1860 Census, Chatham Co., N.C. (Middle Division):
#154 Elbert M 46, Matilda F 38, Anabella F 48, Sara E. F 15, Wn R. M 12, James M 9, Bennet M 6.

In the 1860 Census, Chatham Co., N.C. (Middle Division #150, pg. 169): Alexander Smith M 22 Laborer, Sara F 22, Nathan M 4, James R. M 2. Fought with the 50th N.C. Infantry, Co. F, Moore Sharp Shooters. Deduction is that on returning home and not finding family (?) he eloped with one Sara E. Womack (daughter of Elbert Womack, #154) to Floyd Co., Georgia.

After the War Alexander went by the name of Martin A. Smith and M.A. Smith in Floyd Co., Ga. and Oglethorpe Co., Ga. respectively. Speculating that his father's name may have been Martin Smith or possibly Nathan A. Smith and there seems to be two of each, one older and the younger by these names.

I've looked at all of the records I think possible but need a really good clue as to how one of these Smiths might be tied to Martin Alexander Smith who died on March 23, 1917 in Georgia. I need a real blessing on this one! Thanks for listening. Gary Smith, P.O. Box 411, Lovejoy, Ga. 30250, or
