Roger, Sam, Webmaster (whoever runs this site)
I was in the Martinsburg, WV library yesterday and came across a book "Genealogies of Virginia Families" Vol V (R-Z). In a section titled "Womack Records" by Rev. F.C. Symonds, DD (Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of Lynchburg, VA). He seems to have gathered quite a bit of information, some of it repeats of what I've seen on here, however, quite a bit seems new. It is not so much a genealogy as it is 24 pages of references to different Womacks in VA and NC from the 1600s to the mid 1800s. Womack's were also mentioned in three of the other four volumes of this set and I made copies of all of it.
Now my question, If I scan all this to a PDF format would you be interested in loading it to the site?

Well folks, here are a few interesting links for ya'll
http://www.friendsofcems.org/
has cemetery listings for Hancock, Jones and Baldwin Counties.
Alas, the Sherwood Womack family cemetery is not listed and so continues to be lost - I'm now on the look out for an early 1800s Hancock Co. map that may show the exact location of the plantation and hopefully cemetery. There are a few Womacks in Jones and Baldwin - many Rogers, but generally not many early graves. A nice set up, though for those databases.

Meanwhile, over in Jackson Co., GA, a DVD or CD set of known cemeteries (with photos and GPS co-ordinates of locations) is available (haven't seen it, don't know if it has Womacks or McDonalds or what - but it sounds way cool), costs $60. AND in Gwinnett Co., they have an updated CD of cemetery inscriptions, also haven't seen whether Womacks are in it. Those last 2 are available from the Gwinnet Co. HS - http://www.gwinnetths.org/Publications/Store/ProdSummary.ASP?ItemType=Book
will get you the catalog.

If anyone happens to have the Greene Co., AL cemetery book - which is out of print, could you look up and see if the John Warburton Womack family is listed, as well as the Marcus Wrights? (Gen. Wright is in Arlington National, but apparently some of the relations were buried back in AL) If they are in there, I think I can track a copy down....

Oh, and Judy, about the only thing I know at this point about Aley Rogers Womack Smith is that they were apparently in the 1840 census in Troup Co., GA and that judging from that, they probably had 2 sons and a daughter under 5 at the time. I did find a Smith family in Troup Co. in 1850, but I really can't tell if it was the same one, given that Aley wasn't in the family and the name on Nathaniel was iffy. I have looking for a will or other info on Nathaniel N. Smith that might list children on my massive list of things to do in GA.

Does anyone have a ref. on Carter Womack in the 1840 census? I assume it's in Tenn. somewhere but those indexes are out of whack.

Ignore the previous post - I meant to ask about David Womack - Carter's son - I think based on the birthplaces of his children from the 1850 census - he should be in TN in 1840 - does anyone have a census record for him?

Just in time for the weekend - new information to ponder. I did a search of this site and didn't see this information. So here goes.

From Records I was checking at the Arlington, VA library today --

"Births from the Bristol Parish Register: 1720 to 1798"

1. William son of William and Martha Womack born 10th of September last and baptized Jan 19th 1723/4

2. Laurana daughter of Elizabeth Womeck born March 20, 1728

"Marriages of Henrico County 1608 to 1800"
1. Jan 25, 1697 - Timothy Harris and Elizabeth Womack (Deeds, etc 1697-1679 page 96)

2. November 22, 1708 - John Moseby and Martha Womack, daughter of Abraham Womack (Deeds, Wills, Etc 1706-1709 page 188)

3. Before October 5, 1725 Daniel Nunnaly and Susanna Womack, widow of William Womack, (Orphans Court, 1677-1739, page 54)

This marked an appearance of the Nunnaly and Harris names long before I had refrernce to them.

Looking for Lilly Dell Womack who married John Cameron Smith with son Woodfin Grady Smith born March 04, 1912 in Haw RIver Township, Chatham Co., NC.

I believe that John and Lilly also had an older son named Albert Lee Smith.

Do any of these names connect for you?

Thanks.

Don Womick
dwomick@bellsouth.net

What do I need to do to submit DNA for testing my Wom{i|a}ckness? I'm pretty sure of my line back to Isom Womick (1808-82) from the Rutherford County, NC, censuses during his lifetime, but beyond that the information I have is sketchy, to put it charitably: I have one reference on the web to a Thomas Womack, supposedly the son of Thomas and Louvisa and the father of Isom. Would a DNA test tend to confirm this, based on the DNA of members of better-known lines?

Don
DNA has become a valuable tool for research and has and will further lineages. It is necessary to have some documented idea of a persons ancestors as far as is possible. If and when you decide to test please do so with a reputable lab such as Relative Genetics in Salt Lake. The test is easy and the results from them can be trusted. You would then have to submit your results to Robert Burke who has privy to all the Womack test. Also submitting your markers to the Y-Base.org will increase the chances of a match with other DNAs from other countries as well as those posted there by our group of donors. I have my DNA posted on several databases in hopes of a random match. To date dna has led to the discovery of the parents of Thomas A. the spouse of Louvisa, thereby proving my lineage back to Abraham 1644. Some of the Womack testees in our group have not posted their markers in the Y Base. You can go to www.ybase.org and search for the Womack surname and its variations and see the markers for many Womacks and some others who are exact matches, I speak of the Blanton surname that led to Thomas Womack and his full brother Archee Blanton. There are many "close" matches that deviate by one marker who are posted there.
The deviation of one or two markers may only be a mutation or indicate a distance from the family group. In one incident I found an adopted Womack descendant who's ancestor had been raised by his grandparents and went by their surname. Adoptions and children being raised by other relatives were common in the Colonial and Civil War period when so many fathers died and the widow was fourced to return to her parents or remary as soon as she could. The odds of finding a persons roots are greatly increased by DNA so go for it.

Believe Lucinda Womack may be our Native American connention, i.e. Cherokee. She was born in NC in 1803 (accurate with in a couple of years) to Abner Womack and his wife, Martha Drucilla Harrelson. Believe Lucinda's name was Lucy-Blue-Eye Waumukie. Any assistance in documenting this information would be much appreciated. Lucinda married Claiborne Pigg (and 3 additional husbands), spent most of her adult life in Sullivan Co., IN, died at the home of a daughter, Mrs. Filbert (Philbert)Fry in Greene County IN. She was about 102 when she died. She is buried in Antioch Cemetery, a rural cemetery north of Dugger, Greene county, IN.

wasnt, or at least not full anyway --

Andy,

I think Lucinda's mother was Martha Drucilla Byars and Martha's mother was Druscilla Harrelson b 1750. Martha's father was Nathan Byars b 1749. I think both parents were born in NC; however Druscilla may have been b in VA.

Lucy married John Pigg and they had a son named Clairborn(e)b about 1834. Lucinda was born August 29, 1803 and died July 19, 1908, which would make her almost 105 years old when she died. She died in Green County, IN.

Lucy and John(Jack)Pigg b about 1799/1800 had 7 children, 4 males and 3 females.

Lots of information on Rootsweb. I found children for Lucy and Jack on Family
Search.

FWIW

after careful thought and consulation with others, whom I will not mention, who the hades gave you that information and what kinda rope was they smoking??

How the hades did two people who were not American Indians - have a daughter that was?? Unless adopted?

Its about time some people got tis crazy idea that a Womack is an Indian - there are some registered as such but only because they were women that married into Womacks and on down as ancestors -- NO WOMACK IS 100% AMERICAN INDIAN!!!

Man in 32 years in this hobby or whatever, never heard such crap...

Looking for any info on a Jesse P Warmack born in Al around 1854. He married Emma Nelson of Ga. Had a daughter Mattie and also some sons ans possibly another daughter named Lula. Mattie married S R Smyley in 1896. The Warmacks had lived in Etowah, Cherokee, Benton and Cleburne Counties in Al. There may have been others. They were known to travel between Ga and Al. Would appreciate any info. Thank you.

FYI
After spending all these years searching the LDS family site I can only draw one conclusion the info there is greatly flawed and many are basing their genealogy from what is posted there. Why do I think this? For the simple matter that I read hundreds of genealogies that have the earmarks of being copied verbatim one from another with the same mistakes in them. Most of what is posted there is by the aforesaid compilers and has little or no documentation to back it up. While I and others have notified many of the writers of flawed genealogies of the known mistakes and sent documentation to back it up, they never correct it. This creates a domino effect resulting in more flawed info being passed on to the next unwiting researcher. What we need is a central data base of documented information information, indexed for those newbie genealogist
to search from. The nearest thing to this is Rogers pages posting census, birth, and other certifiable records. Sam puts a lot on his pages, Ann is precise in her info also along with other crediable researchers.
The idea behind the WGN is to unite all researchers in a common goal and to help one another arrive at a well founded record of their lineage. To do this all posted info on this board should cite the supporting evidence when possible.
Maybe we need a page of flaws and fixes added to this site.
Many thanks to those who do provide links for supporting docs..

Jack and Others:
The info I post usually comes from a census record or record like that posted on Wallace below -- whether or not one uses any of the info is fine, but draw your own conclusions and verify supporting documentation also --

I have a book on the Dentons - there is also a web page of mine that has the
"Denton Conenction" as I remember - or at least I think it is still there - the Dentons married into my line somewhere back there --

Sam, I don't use the IGI. Period. It's aggravating, and 50% of the time it's just plain wrong but you never know which 50%.

Jack, if I start up with the number of fictious Womack stories I've come across, I'll pitch a fit. If I hear one more word about Ashley or Ashby Womack, I'm going to throw something at my computer......! Actually, it wouldn't do much harm to write up a FAQs - a "before you ask and we start yelling at you" page. Ashby is one of my particular bugs, "grandma was a Cherokee" is one of Sam's, the "three Irish brothers who sailed to the US on a coal boat" is another good one.

In the meantime, I'm chained to my sewing machine on some complicated projects, so I'm not doing a whole lot of research unless I'm doping off on the sewing projects (it happens!) for the next few weeks. It's too darned hot to think anyway.

Okay - I got this in the mail today from a sweet woman from the RAOGK website, who was trying to find the gravesite of my GG Grandmother Mary Elizabeth Crenshaw Womack, widow of Jordan Henry Womack. Mary remarried (she's in the logan county marriage list as Mrs. M. E. Womack) in 1900 and then was granted the following divorce decree. I know most on this site don't follow this particular line but this was just too funny to pass up.

In the Chancery Court Southern District of Logan County, Arkansas, September term 1908.

Jonathan Ervin, Plaintiff
Against
Mary E. Ervin, Defendant -- Complaint of Equity

Comes Jonathan Ervin, plaintiff in this cause and says: The he is a resident of the southern district of Logan County, and has been a bonafied [sic] resident of the state of Arkansas, for more than Forty years next before bringing this suit:

That he was lawfully married to the defendant Mary e. Ervin in said District, County and State on the 2nd day of Aug. 1900.

That plaintiff and defendant lived hapily [sic] together until the 29th, day of July 1907:

That on the 28th day of July two of defendants Sons came to my house staid all night, the next morning which was the 29th, they without my knowledge or consent loaded her plunder into their wagons, then they put her into a hack, hauled her off and I have never been able to persuaid [sic] her to lve [sic] with me since:

That this desersion [sic], and abandonment is without any cause on the part of this plaintiff.

That the cause of divorce herein occurred and existed in this state, and within the last five years next before the bringing of this suit.

Wherefore premises considerd [sic], plaintiff prays for a decree of dviorce dissolving the Bonds of matrimony heretofore existing between plaintiff and defendant, an d in duty bound will ever pray.

It is signed Jonathan Ervin, pltff by Castillebury Arbuckle [That’s what I make it] – Arbuckle is a fairly common name in those parts.

What makes this all the more amusing is that at the time of their wedding in 1900 - He is 74 years old and she is 54 or 56 - so he's an 82 year old man filing for divorce. He dies four years later and needless to say Mary is not a legetee.

Some WOMACK connections.....Miles Womack's and Frances Hawkins' daughter, Mary C. Womack maybe never married. She did have an affair with Littlejohn S. McCargo who died May 1889 Halifac Co.,VA and he mentions in his will both of Mary's children. He also mentions that Mary C. was deceased. Now both of these children, Lilly/Lillie Womack and Jefferson Davis Womack married into the Halifax Co.,VA Hudsons. Jefferson married first a Hudson and second a Sneed who seems to also have Hudson family connections of some kind. Now Miles Womack's sister, Mary married Feb 22, 1813 Halifax Co.,VA Julius Caesar Hudson who seems to be connectioned to the family of Tabitha Hudson who married Abraham Womack. There are two marriage years given for Abraham and Tabitha. Now one date is BEFORE and the other date is AFTER Halifax became a county. The after date maybe could be the correct one since I don't understand how you can record a marriage in a county before it becomes a county and has a county seat. Littlejohn S. McCargo's grandfather was James Clary Callicoat (name spelled lots of ways) who married for his second wife Susannah, the widow of George Brooke. Anyway, James Clary Callicoat's father was William Callicoat of Amelia C.,VA. William Callicoat was a man who owned, bought and sold lots of land. Patent #31 of 913 acres, he pattened in Amelia Co., VA on 3 July 1752 (pg.142 Land Grants). These acres were on both sides of Ellis's Fork of Flatt Creek and on both sides of the road bounded by WOMACK's corner and other surnames mentioned were Childers, Duprey, Villans (or Williams?),etc. Later on the 6 Dec 1753 William Callicoat patented #32 for 241 acres (pg 328) on the head of Buffalo Creek Forks of Nottoway River. This patent was then in Amelia Co.,VA, but where it is located now I don't know. Maybe Prince Edward Co.,VA which was formed from Amelia in 1754. Earlier on 9 April 1745 William Callicoat bought 44 acres on lower side of Little Creek from Isaac Hudson. (Deed Book 2, page 148 Amelia Co.,VA). William did a lot more buying not mentioned here. Besides his son, James Clary Callicoat, William had four daughters. Two of the girls married men with the surname of Brooke and two of the girls married men with the surname of Mann. William Callicoat's will was written on 4 June 1765 Amelia C., VA, but death date is not known. In this will he mentions giving 200 acres of land to his daughter Tabby. This land was adjoining WOMACK and Ligon Rd. I would love to hear thoughts and comments on any part of the above posting. Also I am looking for proof and doc. on any of the above. Doretta

'Mornin' all,

I attended my annual Boatman family reunion a few weeks ago in New Mexico and while I was there, I starting digging thru' a big box of pictures that someone had brought. Someone at my reunion brought the old pictures and had sat the box on a table in the corner of the room. I grabbed up any pics I saw that were of my grandpa Boatman, and any I could find of Briscoes, or of Womacks. After digging thru' them for about two hours, (there were hundreds and hundreds of photos to look thru') Before I left, I reached into that big box and grabbed me a big handful of pictures to take home with me. We were told at the Reunion that we could keep whatever photos we wanted, out of that box. When I got home a few days later, I looked at each one of the pictures, to see what all I ended up with. All of the pictures that I saw from that box are very old and a few of them were even the old 'tin-type' photographs. I grabbed one picture that is an old tin-type of my great great grandmother Eliza Jane Womack; daughter of Thomas Jefferson Womack. It's one I had never seen before, of course. In the photograph she is wearing a cowboy-type dress and boots. As I looked thru' the rest of the pictures I took home with me, I found the following photos among them: A pretty dark haired woman with the name 'Junee Womack' written on the back; Several photos of a man named Dave Briscoe; in some of them he is photographed standing next to an unidentified woman; A photo of a pretty woman standing in an empty field with the name 'Willie BRISCOE-Capland' written on the back. I dont' know who Junee Womack was or Dave Briscoe. I've asked some of my elderly kinfolk but they don't have any idea either. The photos are all pretty old but in good shape. The one of Junee Womack is in real good shape. You'd think that I'd know who these people are, but I don't. I do know who all the Boatmans are who are in some of the photos with Dave Briscoe, but that's about it. Just thought I'd post those names in case someone knows who they are. There were a lot of the photos from that box that were not Boatmans, but were Briscoes, Womacks, etc. I looked thru' the photos until I started to go blind, haha. So that's when I reached in and grabbed me a big hand full, just before we left to come home that last day. Had I had more time, I would have sat and gone thru' each and every photo in that box.

I'm looking for help with a Jennie Womack, born about 1876, daughter of George F .and Mary J. Womack. She married a doctor William J. Magee, Jr., in Trinity County, Texas, in 1904.

I'd like assistance on (1) her exact birthdate and place, (2) her obituary, year unknown, (3) any children, and (4) Dr. Magee's siblings, if any.

For L W Shell
Is there any possibility that Jennie was William's second marriage??

There was a William Joseph Magee in Trinity Co TX that married there in 1889.
Jennie was on the 1880 census with her parents and some sibs as age 3. Which
would put her at around age 27 when she married - give or take a year or two.

This William was born around 1866 and died abt 1941.

I am hoping to find someone who may be able to identify the JONES that married Mary Womack, per the statement below;

From Autobiography of John K. Bain:

"Grandmother Benton (Mary Womack Benton) died at Father's (Peter Bain)house at the age of eighty-five. Her maiden name was Womack. She and her husband(Jones) and children lived in South Carolina in time of the Revolutionary War. After the War, they started to move to Kentucky, and in crossing a river, her husband and all the children were drowned except for a boy Wellman, and girl Elizabeth. She, herself, was washed down the river and caught some bushes until she was rescued. After she got to Kentucky, she later married the widower David Benton."

Does anyone know of a Wellman Womack?

Thank you

I'm searching for Levi and Lucy Wommack of North Carolina. Known children are Thomas Oscar b. 1881, Jordan, and Maggie. On a Google search I saw a message from Ancestry.com with "Edgecombe County Will Abstracts 1858-1910 p. 83: Will of Elizabeth Lane in 1901 identified Lucy Wommack as wife of Levi Wommack." Anything will be greatly appreciated.

I am searching for a connection for Calvin Whitson who was a U.S. Marshal under judge Issac Parker to John W. whitson who is the first recorded Whitson to inter Arkansas. Our family have researched every known avenue to connect Calvin, my great grandfather, to his Virginia family beginnings in late 1500's to early 1600's. We are almost there! Can you help?

Sam good luck

When Darrel retired in 1997, he thought that he had time to do everthing. Lots of luck, Darrel is now more busy, and has a fuller schedule then when he was working. We still can't travel when we want. When you retire your body slows down,and it takes longer to get things done. May be it is because he's at the computer more and longer and found e-bay. Make us all proud Sam, when you find the missing Womack links. Happy retirement.
