YOU HAVE A VIRUS... Well not really but you could have and not know it.
Don't over-react, go overboard, or panic. Most times a Worm or Trojan horse is considered low risk.

You may have tried to surf to a favorite site or to Google and can not access them. Several virus that are going around may have used your mail list to send a denial of service attack against their servers. a DOS attack simply means that enough mail list have tried to access the server to overload it and shut it down. With 1 in 3 computers in the US infected with a virus , worm or trojan horse yours could be one of them. NOT ME! you say, are you sure of what is hiding in your PC. The Seethrough-E and other trojans have the ability to hide from an anti virus program and open a back door to your machine and you will never know it.

My advice:
1. Don't trust *any* attachment; scan each one. (But what else is new...)
2. Update your antivirus signature today.
3. Do a quick, free Internet scan with trendmicro's housecalls. It's a great online virus checker that's always current, and the one I use.
http://housecall.antivirus.com/pc_housecall/
(Note: Thee first time Housecalls runs on your PC, it'll ask if it can download a small program on your PC. It's safe to do it.)

I also do a virus scan with my Anti-Virus program occasionaly which I update daily. In addition I also use the AVERT Stinger that scans for 48 known Trojans and virus it is a free program from Mc Afee and does a nice job but is limited in the number of virus it scans. It is at http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger. It can be downloaded and an Icon placed on the desk top to run it from or you can run it from your Download File. This one catches the older versions that are making a comeback.
I for one have 25 years of genealogy on my machine and do not want to loose it to some script that some 15 year old kid wrote because he was bored. We must all work together to stop the spread of malicious attempts to disrupt the web and/or disable our computers. Back up is the word for today but make sure you don't back up a virus to boot.

Hi all, I'm hoping I can find some more info on my Wommack ancestry, I'm rying to do a nice tree for my gramps for Christmas!
Gramps is Thomas A. Wommack, son of Otis Wommack and Elta Burke. Otis was the son of Frank Madison Wommack and Mary Mathis. Frank was the son of Madison Wilson Wommack and Neata Bass. From there it is not sourced or anything, but I have hunches all the way back to England that I would like to confirm! I think that Madison WIlson's father was Daniel, then Richard, Thomas, Abraham, Richard, William B., William Charles Augustus, Lawrence, Arthur, WIlliam. Any help is most appreciated. If I make contact with anyone that needs it, I can take pics of the Cedar Bluff Cemetery and Bass Chapel Cemetery here in Greene Co., MO where there are many Wommacks and Womacks buried! Just email me if you need the pics.

Heather, well, off the bat - you can stop at the Virginia shores. Charles Augustus Womack is a fig newton - a figment of someone's fertile imagination. AND we're not descended from Lawrence.

Other than that, it seems like you are more or less on the right line.

Daniel, Richard "Dickey", Thomas, Abraham II, Abraham, John the hog thief, William is how I have that line, but it's not mine, so I'm not up on it. Ann

Hi, all
Sam - happy retirement! If your travels take you as far East as this little spot of heaven in WV - look me up.
I found another genealogy done by the Rev. Dr. Seymond tonight in the Alexandria Library. I'll get it scanned in the next few days and send it to you. You are stopping a job and I'm just starting a new one -- which on first glance seems designed to kill me. If you don't hear from me again - I went stark raving mad and can be found somewhere in the hills running around nekkid - mumbling about missed deadlines.

h_gilbert2004@hotmail.com

Okay, I guess I need some real help, then! Am I right in thinking that the first William is William B. Womack who married Mary Jane Allen? From there it goes to the John the Hog Thief (but whom did he marry?), but I have no marriage or children info for him. I'm not wanting stuff just handed to me, but I have no idea where to look since I thought I had gotten all of my info from a reliable resource (she claimed to have been researching her family tree for 30 yrs). I guess I learned my lesson! :-) The hog theif story does sound intriguing, though-lol. I have a relly on my granny's side that was acquitted for horse theivery and burned the courthouse down because he didn't like the idea of any records existing that he was even suspected. Talk about the good old days!

quiltdog@yahoo.com

Heather, the thing to do is work backwards from who you know to who you don't. BUT, on the bright side, John the hog thief (also wife beater and apple stealer) managed to get himself in the court records of the time, so for him and his wife (Mary Akin) you just need to read the Edward Pleasants Valentine papers which has abstracts of the relavent documents. If you have an ancestry.com subscription, that book is there electronically but if you are near a large genealogy library they probably have a copy....Womacks are in...gosh, the 3rd volume? I think...the problem you'll find with some of the John lines is that, basically, no one say 100 years ago (or less in some cases) liked to be descended from such a black sheep and so....embellished or edited....

Anyway, yes, William in this case would be William the immigrant, married to Mary said to be Mary Jane Allen.....the B you have I don't know where it came from.

Several generations of that line married into the Owens family, so it does get a wee bit confused, but I'm thinking you can get back to Thomas documented fairly easily. I'd have to check...(and I'm off to sew costume for my niece... last fitting this weekend)

If someone is on the John line, whistle up here for Heather!!!! Ann

(Sam, Charles Augustus doesn't hit me as badly as Ashby, but it's close!!)

Thanks so much, Ann--no Ancestry subscription for me, but the local library here in Greene County, MO is awesome and has quite a few VA books in it as well. I will have to get out there soon--we also have 2 LDS libraries, and I'll have to see what they have out there, too!

Heather, if you are in MO, possibly your library can borrow from St. Louis Co? They now house the collections of the National Genealogical Society, who I know for a FACT have the Edward Pleasants Valentine papers in circulation. Back when they were in VA, I could borrow it at will. A great resource in MO......

Ann, I just checked online and our library has all 4 volumes in their genealogy dept. The local Genealogy society has donated all of their books to our county library for the general public, so the collection is really pretty extensive. I'm always impressed with the shelves and shelves of books that they have in there. The people who work in the family history dept are also top-notch! Since I'm fairly new to all of this, that really makes a difference!

My ggg grandfather was William Franklin, died Lunenburg, VA, 1836. Will on file there.

He married Millie Jackson in 1792 in pr.edward co. They had several children.

about 1810 he was married to Edith Womack who was the daughter of Josiah Womack and Kesiah Wilkinson Womack. Josiah died circa 1800 in Nottoway Co.

Since my gg grandfather, Peter F. Franklin was not born until 1815, Edith Womack was his mother.

children listed in william's will: burwell w., bryant p., mary elizabeth who married wm. bailey, peter f., thomas j., elijah, and john w.r.

anyone have any idea who william's parents might have been?

or more information on edith and her father and mother josiah womack and kesiah wilkinson womack??

hope someone out there has some connections with all this.

thanks a bunch, julie umberger

FYI
This may be a just the ticket for genealogy buffs. See more than 10,000 old maps in a free online collection. David Rumsey, president of mapping company Cartography Associates and a true obsessive. After collecting so many maps that even he had to stop, he contemplated donating them to a university for public access--but the Internet came to seem a better bet. He started the project more than four years ago: it was good then, but with broadband, fast computers and great graphics now widely available it's turning into something greater. You can browse for hours and not see all of his maps, it gets to be addictive.

Teena Kinabrew
tkina1@aol.com

Several years ago I inherited a small, small estate (junk mostly) from an elderly man who had no family. While going through the "treasures", I came across an 1858 American Cotton Planter A Monthly Southern Rural Magazine signed by an A. S. Wommack; Liberty Hill, GA with a date of January 14, 1859. While I am not sure I'm willing to part with this little bit of history, I am interested in knowing who Mr. Wommack was and something about him. Is this gentleman someone related to any of you?

Sincerely,

Teena

I always enjoyed watching Roy Rogers and Dale Evans but didn't know they were distantly related to me. I am descended from Abraham Womack and Sara Worsham through the Price lineage to my father's mother side. Can anyone help me on any other info regarding Abraham and Sara Worsham. Sara Worsham Womack had a brother named Charles who had a son named Francis who had a son named Jeremiah who had a daughter named Martha Wassham who married to David Parkhill, my father's 2nd great grandfather.

I'm going to try this again. Looking for the following names in North Carolina: Thomas Oscar Wommack b. about 1881, his brother Jordan dob. unknown, their sister Maggie dob. unknown. Their parents might be Levi and Lucy dates on these two unknown. Please help. I've been through all the message archives and can't find anything that might be a lead exept for a researcher named Ann Crumpton who said in a message she knew about Womacks in North Carolina and was willing to share what she had but I can't seem to contact her. None of her listed email addresses work. Please help.

Royce,
Thanks for responding to my message and for the attachment in your email. I'm researching my grandmother's people. Her father is the Thomas Oscar Wommack in my last message. I know she was born in Halifax co NC. She remembers her uncle Jordan and aunt Maggie. But she never met the parents of her father or even knew their names. A person in Northhampton co, NC suggested the names of Levi and Lucy Wommack. That's all I have.

Either my grandmother is related to the people in your attachment or it is a cruel irony because the people from your info. have some of the same names don't they. And in the same places. I continue looking.

Thanks
Chad

Chad, best I can tell you is try to find Thomas Oscar in the 1900 census and see if he's still living with his parents. If you don't have have a subscription to Ancestry.com , most libraries have one that you can use on site. Some counties have their census data online - you can try a google searsh for Halifax County. Happy Hunting.

Alexander Womack -b. abt 1708
Ann Womack -b. abt 1745 (married Daniel DRISKILL) 5th Gr-Gramma

Christina Driskill -b. 19 Feb 1837 (married Simon Peter KELLEY)
Sarah Magdalene Kelley -b. 02 Dec 1856 (married Jacob GRISSOM)
Charles William Grissom -b. 20 Nov 1890 (Paternal Grandfather)

WOOHOO!! I've found SOMEONE to connect to. I know that the spelling of Driskill varies, but as with other names that happens all too often. In my Dad's Family Bible, Christina's last name is spelled the way I have it "SKILL" (doesn't mean it's correct though.) But, that is why I put it like that. Anyway, I know my line back to Christina Driskill and have been told about her mother and father and so on by (as stated before) my Driscoll (he spells it with the "o" as well) cousin. As much as I like finding missing pieces to my puzzle, it gives me joy in knowing I have helped someone else in finding something they do not have as well. Is my Womack information correct so far? I have seen stuff on the Internet about the Womack's, but want to make sure. I chuckled a bit when I read an earlier post about the "William Charles Augustus Womack" stuff and how it really irked them. Unfortunately, I was among the nerds that fell for that one :( However, in redemption...I do not claim to be an Indian/Indian descent. I could be...but I don't know. Although, my husband's-cousin's-sister's-friend of the family's-brother's-wife is 100% Choctaw...think that will help me get any $ from the government in retrobution? ;)

Thanks for your reply.

Hm? Okay, I don't know where Adam Driscoll came from (could be a brother maybe). All my stuff on the Driskills (spelling change and all) came from my Dad's Bible and John Driscoll cousin. Wasn't it unlikely though for people to get divorced back then? I have my Daniel marrying several times and only assumed (you know what that does) that Anne was dead before he married another wife. I have a son named Adam that was born ~1769. And another thing, unless she travelled across "The Great Pond" and I'm wrong altogether on my Driskill line, I'm trying to make sense out of her marrying Adam in Ireland. I have Anne born and raised here in Virginia. AAAUUUUGGGHHH, so many questions!! Sorry to bother you with this. I really appreciate your comments.

I am looking for information on James Murray and his wife, Margaret McClain, (Circa. 1772-1840) daughter of John McClain and Jane ? (not Jane Marshall).
Margaret McClain came from Pennsylvania and was in Rutherford County, N.C, by 1775. After their marriage (Circa. 1790) they moved to Haywood & Clay Counties, N.C. I would appreciate any help. I am willing to exchange informaion. Would love to hear from you.

Hi Mark and all of you with VA connections: While trying to learn to use the computor and trying to find proof data, I ran onto the following--#1 Susanna Hubbard married first an unknown WOMACK and then second Walter NUNNELEE. Susanna was the daughter of John and Sally Hubbard of Mecklenburg/Cumberland Cos. VA and Wilkes Co. GA. Susanna's brothers and sisters married into families of Jones, Foster, Akin, Bennett, and Burton.--#2While chasing McCargo I found some of the surname in AL with great pictures and connected to the surname of WARMACK(WOMACK?). Also connected was the surname of CRANK and that line goes back to HALIFAX CO. VA. The CRANKs were also connected to HUDSONs.--#3 In Lunenburg Co. VA, William Rivers married Susan WOMACK before 1823 and later moved to Rhea and McMinn Cos. TENN. --#4 Edward Self of Lunenburg Co. VA in 1761 was a juror with Peter Hudson and in 1761 a witness for an unknown WOMACK and earlier in 1760 Edward Self had sold to William JETER both of Lunenburg Co. VA, 170 acres on the waters of the Meherrin, land adjacent to Brooks, Embry and Cockeran. --I hope these notes are useful to someone. I found the Edward Self note interesting since Mark,s Henry Womack line of Halifax Co. VA uses JETER for a middle name, and my husband's Womacks connect to Mark's Womack line. Can anyone tell me what Womack that Edward Self was a witness for? Thanks Doretta.

bhowser@alltel.net

Doretta,

Three of Joseph Johnson's (who died ca. 1761 Lunenburg Co., VA) daughters married the following: Sarah Johnson - Jacob Womack, possibly the son of Richard Womack, III; Susannah Johnson - (William) Peter Hudson, parents unknown to me; Virginia Elizabeth Johnson - Josiah Foster, son of George and Mary Singleton Foster.

The following is an excerpt from Harold Johnson's "Johnson Report": "In this same October (1755 Lunenburg Co., VA) Court, Peter Hudson and Susannah(Johnson), his wife, Plaintiffs were awarded by jury verdict, to wit: John Hubbard, William Mason, Henry Isbell, Nath'l Robertson, Henry Cox, John Mason, Samuel Perrin, Miles Barrot, Evan Stokes, William Gentry, Henry Crenshaw and James Foster, the sum of ninety six pounds current money."

"The same Court date but a different jury, to wit William Mills, Thomas Foster, Peter Pinkstone, John Cox, David Roberts, Dan'l Cargill, Jacab
Colson, John Foster, Penkethman Hawkins, Thomas Hatchett, Francis Howard and Abraham Martin, awarded David Johnson, Plaintiff, ninety nine pounds, eleven shillings and four pence current money...."

The Womack you inquired about could have been Jacob. Can you make a connection with any of the Fosters?.........Josiah, son of George; jurors James and John Foster?

I'll look for a Self connection to any of the children, nieces and nephews of Joseph Johnson.

Beth

Royce,

Do you have anything else on the Levi Womack b. abt 1836 in Halifax co, NC from the attachment you sent me. I found a Levy Wommack in the 1900 census for Edgecombe county, NC. This Levy, according to the census in 1900, is listed as 68 yrs old born in March, 1832. It has his wife Lucy, and 4 out of 8 children listed, Thomas O., Maggie, Lucy, and Martha. Could this Levy be the same person as the Levi on your attachment?

Royce W. Gibson
roycegibson@frontiernet.net

Chad, lots of Womacks lived in both counties for hundreds of years. I think your find is likely the same couple, especially since it fits with know facts you have about your Levi and Lucy. As I said ealier this Levi was a brother of my ggg-grandfather, so I haven't spent a lot of time documenting that line of research. My next suggestion would be to look at land purchase and inheritance records between 1880 and 1900 and see if you can find Levi moving from Halifax to Edgecombe county and/or see if the county lines shifted in those 20 years. In 1880 the family was at Scotland Neck township in Halifax county. You can also try a website called Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness and see if there is some one in Edgecombe County that will go do a lookup for you. I post stuff as I find it. Hopefully, someone on here will pick up this thread too and you'll hit paydirt. I know my own research has been helped just by checking in here ever so often- never know when Ann will get tired of sewing or Sam will stop by with an annnouncement from on high. :)

Thanks Sam - I just ran onto the posted data. Glad to know who Susan is. Hope you are having lots of fun out there. Beth - I tried to ck out those Fosters . From RootsWeb - but found no proof, it seems that Josiah Foster who married Virginia Elizabeth Johnson had brothers #1 James who m. Susanna Wells and #2 John who m. Eleanor Collins and Johiah's other siblings were George, Elizabeth, William, Hannah and Joseph. They married into families of Low, Buckson, Dabbs/Dobbs, Or, and Nance. The other interesting stuff I also found on RootsWeb - still no proof, was that Robert Foster, father of George who m. Mary Singleton, had several marriages of whom a step-mother of George was Sarah Biggs/Bigg. Now there was a Peter Hudson who m. Martha Briggs who had first m. Halcot Pride. This Peter Hudson was the father of Peter Hudson who m. Mourning Griffin and the grandfather of Tabitha Hudson who was maybe the Tabitha who m. Abraham Womack and also the grandfather of Peter Hudson who m. Mahala Hampton. (I hope I have got these Peter Hudsons stright.) Could there be more marriages with any of these Peter Hudsons? What kind of court records are those of 1755? Could it be that Susan Johnson got married and David Johnson came of age and able to receive their due? Could that court record with Edward Self as a juror for Womack be the same kind of suit? (By the way this morning I ran onto a RootsWeb site that says Sarah Johnson m. Peter Womack. Just food for thought.) Doretta Also I will keep looking.

Yeah, Doretta, the Johnson Report has both Peter and Jacob Womack as Sarah Johnson's husband. This is Harold Johnson's method of listing the Johnsons:

(1c) Sarah Johnson (daughter of (1))
(1cH) Peter Womack (Husband of (1c))

One law suit specifically says, "In the case of Jacob Womack and Sarah his wife, plaintiff, the same jury awarded them eighty six pounds, ten shillings current money!"

I talked with Harold about the discrepancy several years ago, and he confirmed the data had both names. Since then I've read several instances of researchers finding the name Peter in lieu of the name Jacob.....in other families. I don't have a solution to this one.....our "front" name is just "Bubba" in Arkansas!

I'll send you a copy of the Johnson report via email. Note the references to land on the Meherrin River and also the Meherrin Baptist Church, which we talked about last year or so.

Elmer Lewis Womack and Minnie Belle McGee were married December 19, 1909 in Temple, Comanche County, now it is Cotton County, Oklahoma. In 1920 Census, it shows Elmer Lewis Womack to be born in Colorado about 1877. His wife, Minnie Belle McGee was born in Montepelier, Clay County, Mississippi on January 13, 1885 to William Alexander McGee Jr. and Nancy Ann Thornton. I am looking for information on my Great Grandfather Womack and his wife. Also information on when and where my Grandfather, Elmer Lewis Womack was born in Colorado.

Sam,

In 1761 Lunenburg Co., VA, Jacob and Sarah Johnson Womack and most of her siblings individually sued the estate of the late Joseph Johnson. Excerpt from the Johnson report:

".........In the case of Jacob Womack(1cH) and Sarah(1c) his wife, plaintiff, the same jury awarded them eighty six pounds, ten shillings current money!......."

As I told Doretta, both Peter and Jacob Womack are named for the husband of Sarah Johnson in the Johnson report. Harold Johnson abstracted Peter from the will of Joseph Johnson and Jacob from the above court records.

There's no doubt in my mind now, based on the research of Patricia Cox Jackson that Sarah Johnson, dau. of Joseph Johnson, was married to Maj. Jacob Womack. Their children were Martha, b. 1758 (m. Capt. Robert Bean), William, Sarah, Johnson, b. 1762, and David Womack. My Larkin is more than likely the son of David, evidenced by the early TN land records on Robert Burke's web page.

BTW, we need an update on the whereabouts of the "White County Flash"!

To Sam, Beth and anyone who wants to give input. I have some dates for that Johnson bunch. (quote) Joseph (Johnson)Johnston's will names sons Mical, Isaac, David, Joseph Jr. and daughters Charity (single), Cecily (single 1761) and Elizabeth, and married daughters Mary Winingham, Anne Wood, Susanah Hudson and Sarah Womack. The estate returns in 1765 lists a judgement to Joseph Womack. Sherrod Walton was executor of estste. (unquote) Who is this Joseph Womack? Why would he be receiving a judgement? The above quote doesn't give the will's written or probated date but another note I have says "Joseph Johnson died before 3 March 1761 Lunemburg Co. VA, married Mary____." I take that date to be maybe the probate date of will. Could Sarah have died before the estate returns in 1765? Does anyone have the correct birth and death dates for Sarah?

Doretta,

Other than the information from the Johnson report, I've never found anything specifically on Sarah Johnson Womack. And I don't know the birth order of their children. Maybe Sarah died in childbirth, and Jacob married again after Sarah's death to the "Mary" everyone refers to as his wife. I thought "Sally" was a nickname for Sarah.

The only other possible clue on Sarah, if she went by Sally, I reported here in 2002 from the Combs web site:

"(28/85/9649) 1812 Dec 11 William RIDGE 30 acres on Mine Creek to include improvement made by Hubbard BREWER; LARKIN WOMACK, Loc. (Note: Loc. is an abbreviation according to the author for Locator, which means in this case 'neighborhood')."

"(30/9/14534) 1815 Feb 18 William RIDGE 12 acres waters of Mine Lick Creek to include improvement where SALLY WOMACK used to live."

"WILLIAM Ridge: There are three more references, same area, mentions Sally WOMACK and David WOMACK'S field to include WOMACKS improvements. 18 Feb 1815."

I can't tell from this information if Sally and David Womack are married or possibly mother and son, but I believe this David Womack is my Larkin's father.
Johnson, David (sons of Jacob) and Larkin were in Arkansas by 1816.

Joseph Johnson's will is dated 8 Jan 1761 (Will Book 2, pg. 28) and was recorded 3 Mar 1761. "...the April Term of Court, 1761, Lunenburg Co., Va. Joseph Williams, Gent., is appointed guardian for Elizabeth Johnson and Sisley Johnson, orphans of Joseph Johnson, dec'd, and with Henry Isbell, his security, entered into and acknowledged bond for that purpose. Order Book 6, p. 260...". The first court case brought against the estate of Joseph Johnson was by his son-in-law, Stephen Wood, Sept 1761.

Could the Joseph Womack who received the judgment actually be Jacob Womack, awarding him and Sarah the eighty six pounds, ten shillings current money?

(It is believe the charecture from True Grit's "Ruster Cogburn" was based upon Cal's true life characture.) Calvin was born 1853 to Isaac and Ann Whitson in Crawford Co. Arkansas.
Isaac Whitson was born in White Co.1822,I assume Arkansas. This is where my search stops. I need to know Who Isaacs father was. I think the family removed from Illinois 1820's. Can someone fill in the blank?

I am not a member of WGN although my paternal grandmother was Annie Clementine (Womack) Good from Benton County Arkansas. I have inherited quite a bit of Womack genealogy information from others in my family who have passed on. I have a Womack Family Bible with a printing date of 1891 and my brother has one with a date of 1872. I have copies of the genealogy informmation from both of them. Much of the information I have on earlier generations was originally collected by Lucy (Womack) Bates who lived in Nashville in the 50s, 60s, and 70s and was very active in genealogy although other information came from my father and uncle, who have also passed on.

My reason for writing is to point out a couple of errors I noticed in the 1880 census records posted on this website for my grandmother's family in Benton County Arkansas. I don't know how to go about getting them corrected and am hoping someone can tell me or can take care of the corrections.

The first error is as follows: The file listed shows the family of James Womack and his wife Elizabeth W. That is not correct. The "W" was his middle initial (not hers) and stood for Wilson. Her middle name was Jane.

The second error is as follows: The youngest child is listed as a daughter named Della at 3 months old. That was not her name. Her name was Stella Mae and she was born on March 11 1880. I didn't see the exact date of the census, but I'll bet it was June.

I hope this information is of interest to someone and an effort can be made to correct the file. I would be glad to here from anyone with an interest in my branch of the Womacks.

I descend from one of her siblings, Richard Hubbard who married Martha "Patsy" Jones. I have connected the names you mention and some others with Susanna's siblings, but have very little additional information. Do you have additional info that you would share? I also do not have the first name of the Womack who maried Susanna. By the way I sent an email to you direct and received return mail. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated, as I have been working on this generation for over 10 years and haven't reached home plate yet.

I couldn't figure out if anyone had posted anything on them and what his given name was. My source for the WGN post was Mecklenburg Co, VA (Migrations) which as it turns out was your post. I wish I had more but thats all I have. Your suenames do ring bells with me. Why, I don't know, unless some distant Jones relative of yours was early in Madison Co, KY. Those Jones were from VA. I have been trying to figure out my way around with windows, the net and whatever on the computer, so I will keep your surnames in mind as I try out new stuff.

There are no stupid questions.

It's not a nickname, it's more of a factual description. He was also an apple stealer and hog thief. If you go back to the court records of the time, John was brought up in court several times. As a result, various family relationships and his wife are identified, because they described their ages and relationship to John in their depositions. If you can lay your hands on a copy of the Edward Pleasants Valentine papers, there are abstracts in there to read on John.

Hi everyone, I'm back, this time with a Mary C. Venable Womack, daughter of Samuel Woodson Venable Sr and Mary Carrington of Prince Edward Co, VA. She inherited in 1821 land in Halifax Co.,VA from her father which he had boughtnof William Boyd. The land was commonly called Cannons Tract and it contained about 380 acres. She also inherited a tract bought of Scott & others of 50 acres and also 50 acres more adjoining that which her father had bought of the heirs of Charles Edwards. But Mary's brother Abraham W. Venable had the use of Mary's land until the death of their mother, then the land was Mary's and her heirs. Also Mary's sisters, Elizabeth W. Wathins (wife of William Watkins), and Agnes Watkins inherited a large tract of land in Halifax Co.,VA on Difficult Creek and there was a mill on it. When Mary's mother died in 1837, Mary inherited her grandmother's Family Bible. Mary was also willed several persons of color by both her father and mother and they are named in the wills. What I want to know is: Can anyone tell me what happened to all this Halifax Co.,VA Land? Also who got the Bible after Mary? She maybe died the 28 of Dec 1867. These wills were posted on Prince Edward Co.,VA Message Board by Kay Van Fleet on 14 June 2001. Also I found posted on Lunenburg Co.,VA Gen Forum a posting by Reginald Vassar on March 2000. It is a transcript of Mary Whitlock Wills Cole's will, dated 1818. In it Mary Cole names a daughter Mary Womack and one of the witnesses to the will was a Jacob Womack. Will probated 18 Sept 1821 Lunenburg Co.,VA. Doretta

The will of Mary Whitlock Wills Cole referring to daughter Mary Womack, and witnessed by her husband Jacob Womack..Mary Womack and Jacob Womack
(son of Alex Jr), are my 4th great grandparents. Many uninformed people have her as Mary Wills Cole - her sons bible record clearly states her maiden name is Wills --

Sam---What you say seems right. (Some researchers must be mixing up Mom name Mary and daughter name Mary.) Anyway Mom Mary is listed in the heading of the post by R.Vassar with her maiden name of Whitlock and her two married names as Mary Whitlock Wills Cole. In the transcript Mom Mary calls herself Mary Cole and then in the body of the will she says..." 1st I give and bequeath to my son Josiah Cole.... 2nd I give and bequeath to my son George Cole.... 3rd I give and bequeath to Desdimonia Wills...." (No relationship given.) "4th I give and bequeath to my daughter Mary Womack fifty dollars and one feather bed and furniture to her and her heirs forever. 5th I give and bequeath to my daughter Susannah Stegall.... 6th I give and bequeath to my son Nunn Cole.... 7th I give and bequeath to my daughter Letty Comer.... 8th Lastly I give and bequeath the residue of whatever kind it maybe to grandson Albert Cole to him and his heirs forever, and appoint my son Josiah Cole executor to this my last will and testament revoking any former will made by me." Then Mary Cole seals the will on 15th Day of April 1818 and her witnesses were Merewether Hurt and Jacob Womack. The will was presented to be recorded in Lunenburg (Co.,VA) Court 18th Sept 1821. (Sam-Reginald Vassar, The poster of the will has Vassar connections with Vassars of Halifax Co, VA.) Doretta

But, if you are merging with FTM when the first merge screen comes up - go thru, after clicking the adding, and get rid of all the dupes you know are cuped and alla the unknowns - it dont take a college degree to know that a blank area means you dont know who goes there

after entering - then the the x number couldnt be merged for some readon or another, then go theu and eliminate the unknowns, again no degree needed to know you aint got the info - and then you can also eliminate obvious dupes before you do the final merge - keeps the file clean; and and for the uninitated, hey look what I got - nothing is so stupid as seeing an unknown in a gedcom or other file -- we are all smart, or I think we are, to figger out there aint no one to go there or we would have put someone there..
