Obit as written by Janet Brewer, posted with her permission.

Carlos Uvalto Womack was known as "Noot" or "Nootie" to his family & friends, Carl to his military friends, & Carlos to those working at The Brighton Gardens where he was living at the time of his passing on June 29, 2005. He was born on June 20, 1919, in Roosevelt, OK. His parents were Henry Kinchen & Mary Lou Etta (Shelton) Womack. His family then moved to Crowley, CO where he grew up & attended school. As a boy, Carlos was baptized & joined the Crowley Community Baptist Church & still remains a member there. During World War II, Carlos joined the Air Force from which he retired as a Chief Warrant Officer on Feb. 1, 1971 after 30 years of service to his country. He was military through & through. He married Alice Mayble Watson on Sept. 7, 1937. To this union, a son, Carlos Uvalto Jr.(Val) was born. While a junior at the Air Force Academy, Val contracted Hodgkin's disease & passed away on Feb. 9, 1965. Alice passed away on April 9, 1971. Carlos married Louise (Lou) Love Holten & they made their home in Colorado Springs, CO. Lou passed away on Aug. 14, 2004. Carlos was an avid genealogist & compiled an extensive history of the Womack family. His genealogy books are a part of the genealogy library at the Church of the Latter Day Saints in Salt Lake City, Utah. as well as at other libraries.
He was loved very much by his sisters, Elba Palmour of Ordway, CO & Henrietta Baker of Colorado Springs, his stepchildren, Lynda (Jerry) Winchell, Jay (Diane) Holten, & Tanya Tapper, his step grandchildren & great grandchildren as well as his nieces & nephews. He & Lou were interested in seeing that all had a chance for a college education & helped provide for that.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his two beloved wives, his son & 3 brothers, Wilfred, Jack, & LaVerne.
Services will be held at 2:00 PM at the Dewitt Funeral Home in Fountain, CO on Friday, July 1st. Visitation will be from 12:00 noon until 2:00. Burial will be at Memorial Gardens on Tues., July 5, 2005. Rev. Kirk Larson, the husband of a great-niece of Dodge City, KS will officiate.

Beth, I'm sorry I've been off-line for a while as we had some health issues
around here for the last couple of months.

Anyway -
Kinchen R. 1850 Monroe Co. is indeed my ancestor.

I don't honestly know if William in Lowndes is his brother, son, nephew or cousin. My list of
Kinchen's children is based on the 1850 household. There
were alot of Williams running around, half of them related to the Lewis family
and they are a pain to sort out.

Since we don't know when Kinchen and Mary married, it's hard to say when
their first kid would be born. BUT, he had a kid named Wiley, which makes
me really wonder if he had a kid named William.

I seriously suspect that who you might have there is William aka Green
aka William Green, son of John and Sarah Avery Lewis Womack, b. abt
1822. NOT Green's nephew William Green or other nephew William,
who would both be too young.

But, I'll do some more checking.

Sam, thanks for the link! Great list. The only one I see there I know right
off the top of my head is uncle Wiley,
who died at the Confederate Home in Sweet Home, Ark. in 1927. Who, BTW, is the
above referred son of Kinchen.
There are a bunch who should be listed in Camden and Bearden, but they aren't. So
you just know some folks just didn't bother with gubmit forms.

The passing of a great Geanoligist.
Carlos Uvalto Womack went to be with his Lord today, Wednesday June 29 at 2:45 pm. Carlos had been in an Alzheimers hospital for quite some time.
Carlos was the author of 'The Descendants Of William and Mary Jane Womack' book and its revisions. He was a master from the old school that did not have the benefit of a computer to do his research on, but relied on researching libraries court houses and record archives in person.
Carlos and Ray Bryan Womack are probably comparing notes with their ancestors who have gone on before.
Our deepest sympathy in this time of grief and loss to niece Janet Brewer and family.

It is now 4:38 AM Jun 28 - I have finished uploading all the deat records I have except TX - I like about 1500 names to go on that big 'un...too wasted to
do it now....hope you guys like what I have done....

I have death records for 17 states compiled - like about 550 names for CA - would be done but my DSL went out for about 24 hours - should finish that today.
When I get them ALL finished will upload to one of my sites -- Keep an eye on my main page, above, for link...if there is no link to a particular state you may have interest in - there were no records on line for that state --

But now I have a question - I am searching for the parents, birth and death location of one Elma Womack, born Feb 1905, died Oct 12, 1936 - she is buried in the cemetery where my greats on down to my dad are buried - - I have checked AR death index and also have written for a copy of a death certificate. Arkansas has no record of her death. I have been unable to locate her on a census as of yet - Womack may have been a married name rather than maiden.

The only thing I can figure is that she died out of state, but was brought to AR and buried. Why, I have no idea; but she must be a relative of some sort..
I have written the person who keeps the cemetery records - hopefully they kept good enough records to know where she is in the cemetery and any other info - I would like to buy her a marker, regardless, a relative or not..

I have visited this wonderful web-site many times in the past. I am the granddaughter of John William Womack and Ollie McFarland Womack of Corpus Christi, Texas. My mother was Jean Womack Beard who passed away May 2, 2002. I would like to hear from anyone who knew my mother and her sisters, Madelyn Womack, Helen Womack Segrest, Bobby Womack Reagan and Frances Womack Gorham. Madelyn, Helen, and Bobby are all deceased and Aunt Frances is not doing well. My cousin, Sandra Gorham Stever, is putting together a book of tales of our aunts and mothers and would love to hear any stories anyone might have about them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Joann Horton.

I need the parents of Mary Jane Womack, born ca 1814, KY and married James Holmsley, born ca 1810 KY. They had a daughter, Nancy, born 1834 Ark and died 1859 Madison Co., Ark. Nancy was married to Bayless Shumate, born 2-17-1833, Harlan Co., KY and died 12-18-1927 Washington Co., Ark. Nancy Holmsley was 1/2
Cherokee, but I don't know which of her parents was Cherokee. I suspect it was James Holmsley. I am researching this Womack family for Sally Lyons Kindle, who is in bad health and unable to do it herself. Most of her family is Cherokee. Any help on the Womack family would certainly be appreciated. Contact me at Tyra302@aol.com

Ed, I think your guy probably died between 1919 and 1920 - I am guessing your grandmother is the Perney Womack listed with the Conditt family - she is listed as age 21, widowed, with a girl Dorthea (?) - that's Bryan Co., OK 1920, Albany township, page 1b

Ed, sorry to do this in two postings, but my knowledge of OK records is limited, so I had to look it up. You should be able to get the death certificate from the state vital records office. This is in theory - apparently the state started in 1916, but if Arkansas is any model, 1919 -1920 they may or may not have it on file. http://www.health.state.ok.us/program/vital/brec.html has the details. Or there may be an obituary or funeral home notice.

I am looking for any information on a Thurman Womack born in Mich. around 1892. From an old birth certificate it appears his middle inital is H. but am not sure since what I have is a copy of a copy and is not clear. He married Pernia Conditt August 3, 1914 and they had a daughter Dorothy O. Womack born January 16, 1919. Thurman died before the 1920 census. They were living in Durant, Ok. at this time. It turns out that Thurman is my actual grandfather but I did not find this out untill after my mother and grandmothers death. I am in hopes that someone will be able to help me. Thank you. E. Bowen

Yesterday was browsing around with teh various DNA things - same across on McCown that apparently had a Womack way back - checked the Pedigree and it appears this person connected to the Thomas Womack, who had the daughter named Elizabeth, who hit Jamestown in about 1620. Altho the person did not have the name of the female -- Unfortunately he had her born in 1630, the Jamestown muster, or census in 1623/24 indicated she was 25 when she arrived in 1620.
This is the one Elizabeth Womack/Sharp/Packer/Baugh that had headrights, unnamed, in the mid 1630's..this pedigree I saw had her bearing children to Baugh from 1639 to 1660 something. Couldnt have done that because she died in 1650 and would have been over 50 years old at the time of some of the birthings -- My info was thru the Sharp(e) researchers -

I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the Thomas - Elizabeth Womack connection; nor anything other than a William Sharp hit Jamestown well before 1620; and an Elizabeth came over in 1620(no last name given nor ships list), probably as a load of women to be brides for single men in the colony--they had two sons who were age 2 and 2 mons old, respectively, on the 1623/24 muster. Isaac and Samuel. William apparently died ca. 1635 or 36, she married a Packer, he died within about 2 years, and then she married in about 1638--William Baugh..about 10-15 years younger than she..

As I think I have mentioned before, this may be our Womack connection to the immigrant - a headright of a relative??? This needs more research to be sure..

Actuallly the Free Paris mentioned, in the will Derrell posted below, was known as Free Farris; but real name was Frances Meredith Farris, b. TN Mar 15, 1846; d. McMin Co TN Dec 20, 1906. Married Linda R Womack, b. Polk Co TN Aug 11, 1848, d. Mcminn Co TN Oct 5 1908. They married Jul 23, 1868.

Sam - on your Accomack County inquiry.
Accomack was formed around 1660 from Northampton County, however it was actually a county before that called (Accawmack) around 1630. So a good 20 years of history is likely in the Northampton archives, if at all.

It is and was a part of the "outer" banks of Virginia and borders the state of Maryland on the North. Seems to have quite an history and you may end up with records in Maryland since that state is contiguous with the county and the rest of Virginia is across the Chesapeake Bay.

Has anyone been able to find information on Freelove Thompson or her family. She was the Wife of Alexander WOMACk. In the late 1830's, they moved to Polk Co., Tn., where they remained until the 1860's. About the time of the Civil War, they settled in McMinn Co.,where they stayed until their deaths.

Does anyone have any info on these Womacks? This was in Johnston Co NC in the area that later became Wake County.
Johnston Co Deed Book E-1:214 28 Oct 1765
Sarah Womack to Benjamin Womick "My whole Rite and Title of my thirds of a tract of land belonging to John Womick deceased containing 160 a cors..."..."the said part of land containing 53 acors." Wit: Charles Jones & Hardy Sanders Note: at this time in NC the widow was entitled to 1/3 of her husband's land

Then: 17 Nov 1769 Benjamin Womack Jo. Co. to John Bradford, Junr, Hallifax Co...160 A in Jo Co...."by virtue of his birthright as Son and Heir to John Womack deceast. Who purchased the same of Dunkin Lemons for whome the land was survey'd and granted by Original deed from the Proprietors." Wit: William Moore, G.S. Turner, Chrsito. Woodward, Benjamin (B)his mark Womack

Note: NC State Archives: Duncan Lemmon granted 160 acres in Johnston Co 1 July 1760.

I'm esp. interested in info on Benjamin and any other children of John & Sarah, as well as Womack's of Johnston, Wake & Cumberland Co NC. Thanks!

Y'all all know we still have the name suspect in the Immygrant and his spouse.

One enigma is the naming process they had back then - John, Thomas and William
defintely are names from mainly the Yorkshire branch of Womacks. Altho, they
do show up in the E Dereham/Lopham Womacks..

If our branch had came from the E Dereham/Lopham's - there would have been
more Lawrences, Arthurs, Henrys, Hughs, James; and yes, even Samuels in the earlier bunch. I may be proven wrong, but you know naming patterns.

Abraham?? Someone had a deep religious conviction; or his name came from
a wife's side of the hill..In the LDS Ancestral file, which we know is loaded with errors because of what people put out there, the earliest one of any substance is the Abe of 1644 in VA..

The British IGI shows, with duplication, Abe and Abe Jr of VA being born
in England or Wales....The US IGI and Pedigree files show the VA Abe begining with about 1644 as we know it..so I do want to throw this out there:

ABRAHAM JUDD
Birth:
Christening:
Marriage: 01 MAY 1602 Cranbrook, Kent, England (notice the county)
Death:
Burial:

Wife MARY SLOMAN
Birth:
Death:
Burial:

---------------------------------------------------------
Timothy Allen (I believe this is the one who took care of the Orphans?)
Birth: 1594 , , England
Christening:
Marriage:
Death:
Burial:

Wife ? Worsham (now where have we seen that name before??)
Birth:
Christening:
Marriage:
Death:
Burial:

Children

1. Mary Jane Allen
Birth: About 1615 , Henrico, Virginia (dont really buy this)
Christening:
Death: 1677
Burial:
Or:
Mary Jane ALLEN
Birth: 1620 , , England (makes more sense than above)
Christening:
Death: 1685
Burial:
Dates of death, close? No Kewpie??

Previously, we were perplexed about Henry Womack in Accomac(k) Co VA - I went thru the US Gen Web county page for Accomac(k). I was advised by one of the people there that many of the so called Accomac(k) records were actually filed in a couple of counties over the border in another state[MD or MA??]. I queried those counties and nil came up on Henry Womack of any spelling -- Not that most of us havent already; but I think I can finally lay to rest mine and David Dunn's conclusion the "perfect" genealogy of Henry is nothing but a FAKE! And, that anyone claiming descent from that one really doesnt exist!!!
