Just wanted to thank every one for help in the Womack family plus Alday.
Dorinda, you need to talk to Miles Womack about Benjamin - Miles does Florida Womacks.
Try Mylzw@worldnet.att.net and see if that email is still good, haven't heard from Miles in a while.
In 2001 on Genforum.genealogy.com/Womack, there was a gal named Brandi, who descends from Jim Womack and Nora McKnight. Search for Nora McKnight on this Genforum web page. When Brandi's posts come up, click on her name, and you can view the other web pages on Genforum where she's posted. She has info on Nora's parents, etc. I don't know if her email addy is still current, but in 2001 it was Brandie32000@aol.com.
Clyde Oliver Womack, son of James Isaac Womack passed away about a week ago. While looking through his house, we have come upon on an ancient photo album with about 4 daguerreotype photographs. There are lots of names of people of whom I don't know. I know Nora McKnight was James Isaac's wife. Does anyone know much about her family? I have lots of pictures of her and her family. Any help would be nice.
Don't know if there are any Pryors here on this site I found who married Womacks but found this site and figured I'd post it
To the person who wanted to establish a link between Alday and Womack families.My grandfather was Sidney Dillard Alday son of James Alday. James was son of Benjamin Alday, son of Josiah Alday and Ann Nancy Womack. They lived in Burke County, GA around 1760-1770. He was in the GA Militia and Captain in Rev. Unit. The family was from Virginia. Josiah and Ann Nancy had several sons, David, Richard, Benjamin (our line)and some I can't recall without my records. I have a lot of infomation on this family. They spread out, into Butler County Alabama and Clark County, MS. Some of the family went to Texas. Several grandsons were in the Civil War. I don't know if this will help you. I will be glad to share what I have with anyone interested. Ruby Brown, Sacramento, CA.
Jack, I found your post interesting, . .
. . . I was in the Pioneer Cemetery in Eastland Co TX recently for my wifes cousin's funeral and discovered something unusual. . . . Rising Star TX
My gg-grandmother was Rhoda Jane Womack (Lucretia Taylor Womack m William Riley Womack) Rhoda Jane m Stevens -and my great grandmother was born in Rising Star in 1901 Eva Zell Stevens Singleton. EVA had younger sisters born in Indian Territory (OK), but then my gg-grandfather died and Rhoda Jane loaded the buckboard up with the seven kids and headed back to Texas.
I don't know if I sent you her autobiography or not, but I'm pretty sure I remember from the last time I was here that you and I are related (about four or five generations back)
I am gggrandaughter of Rhoda Jane Womack. (parents William Riley Womack and Lucretia Taylor Womack)
I don't think you ever sent me anything in the past, but if you did I hope I at least said "thank you".
I haven't been to the site in nearly two years due to family unexpected situations. I do know that whoever I WAS corresponding with at that time probably got the cold shoulder as I went from a schedule of work and genealogy to a schedule of work and raising two grandchildren. (1 and 5 now 3 and 7 years old).
I respect the research I have seen from you and imagine you as a mentor, but being new to genealogy research and to WGN I must admit that you often seem VERY angry and I am fearful to ask your assistance because I might not live up to your expectations therefore incurring your wrath.
I hope that others would not intentionally offend you, but on my part if I got on your "S____t-L___t" when I dropped out (I did not expect to be raising two little ones at this point in my life). I humbly apologize and ask forgiveness.
My research is little as I have mostly depended on existing family records and those of members of WGN. I am still learning to research and hope to be a great resource to the membership someday. I guess I just expected everyone to share what they knew in order for all of us to put more pieces of the puzzle together.
Good-luck with your research, your life, your future and I hope you keep sharing despite the "rudeness" of some of us in the Womack line.

Mrs Mary Womack Jones may have or may not have married David Benton in KY. On a RootsWeb Site, it shows Mary Womack b1756 d1835 and David Benton (Rev War Solider) b1735 d1833 as parents of Sina/Sinah Benton b 17 Sept 1789 in N.Car. d 30 Nov 1870 and that she married in 1814 in Warren Co Tenn to Peter Bain b1784 Fluvanna Co VA. David Benton seems to have also married Abigail Hale b 1742 and had at least 2 sons named Caleb and David. Sina Benton and Peter Bain had several issue. Doretta
Are there any Womack's out there from Rhode Island. My grandfather came over from England in the later part of the 1800's. Several brothers & sisters also. My grandfather was Clement and sister Teresa, Frances, Mary, Agnes & brothers Bernard Alfred & Francis. Also looks like the father Elijah came also but maybe mother Emma (Bigley) died in England. Just starting & is getting a little overwelming so would appreciate any HELP you can give.
Dorinda - Benjamin and Nancy are also on the 1850 census for Gasden County Florida. Where he states he was born in Georgia. In 1840 there is a Benjamin in the Thomas County Georgia census with a wife and 8 children. And before that in 1830 there is a James Womack next to an Alsobrook in Jones county GA. Could be the same person as the ages match and Thomas county was carved from Jones county (1840 census says they are in the Jones District).
I suggest looking for Wills or Bible records that would give you a clue on parentage of Benjamin and you might try North Carolina as a starting place on the wills. Alsobrook's (Allsbrook's) and Womacks have a strong connection in NC.
According to the census data he was born in GA about 1798. You might also try marriage records in GA for the time period and see if you can come up with a maiden name for Nancy.
I know that's not much help but hope you can run with it.
Am I the only person around researching Wommack's(Womack)in Florida? I just read though the archives in the recent postings. I was very disappointed to find not one posting for the Florida/South Georgia area. I REALLY need some help here folks....I know that Benjamin and Nancy Wommack did not just fall from the sky. He died in 1859 in Liberty Co, Fl. His wife Nancy and children are listed in the 1860 census for Gadsden Co, Fl. After that I loose them, I believe that James moved to Polk Co, FL along with other siblings. My line comes from Francis and he married Celestra Jane Chason and raised his family in Florida. Please someone help me with some information.
Looking for othes whose descent follows as such or any other derivitives.

In case anyone is curious the Arabic posting below says
"Ali Pasha Ashour" is invited for iftar (ramadan dinner) with us today if he'd like.
I hope Ali made it :)
I hope you are referring to Lawrence Co., Arkansas and not Alaska!
From my Arkansas Womacks file, I have this:
Children of John Womack and Unknown wife are:
1. Mahala Womack, b. ca. 1810, TN, d. 1848, Randolph Co., AR; m. William Adair son Huldy Adair
2. Lucy A. Womack, b. 1818, AR, d. Oct 1880, Clay Co., AR) m. 1st _____ Luttrell; m. 2nd 21 Mar 1840, Randolph Co., AR, Peter Watson, b. 1810, KY, d. Clay Co., AR
3. Cecilia Womack m. 20 Nov 1831 in Lawrence Co., AR, Lewis LaChance of Madison Co., MO
4. John J. Womack, b. 1825, m. 4 May 1845, Randolph Co., AR, m. Nancy E. Murray
5. Wade Hampton Womack, b. 1830, m. 1st 25 Mar 1849, Randolph Co., AR Kizza Taylor; 2nd 3 Jul 1857, Randolph Co., AR, Pemetta Taylor
6. Sarah Womack, m. 24 Sep 1834, Lawrence Co., AR, Jesse S. Winningham, b. 1815, TN, d. 1873, Randolph Co., AR, son of Sherrod Winningham son George W. Winningham of Green Co., AR (Jesse Winningham m. 3rd Nancy V. Womack)
I don't have a sister, Hulda, but Cecilia Womack LaChance's brother, John J. Womack had a daughter, Hulda Womack.
Randolph Co., AR was created in 1835; I believe it was taken from Lawrence Co.
John Womack, father of your Cecilia, migrated to AR from TN the same time as my Womacks and was listed on the 1816 Lawrence Co., AR Tax list with mine. I haven't been to establish any other connection yet.
I am trying to find out information on my gg grandfather Lewis LaChance I have recently found out that his wife was Ceclia Womack and they were married 11/20/1831 in Lawrence County Ak. If anyone knows anything about this family I could sure use some help. I can't find out anything I do know that Cecilia had a sister named Hulda. Thank you Brenda
Hi, I am looking to find out any information that I can about my family line and also to find out the heritage of the Womack name. If anybody could help me that would be great. I am Donald Shawn Womack Born in La Junta Colorad on 3-3-77. My Dad is Melvin Don Womack and is the son of LaVerne Don Womack.
I descend from Abraham Womack who married Elizabeth Stubblefield in 1751. Their daughter Mary was my fourth great grandmother. She was born abt 1756. She married first an Unknown Jones. She next married David Benton in KY.
From Autobiography of John K. Bain:
"Grandmother 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 who this Jones might be? Has anyone ever heard of a Wellman Womack?
A NEW WORM ALERT
A new variant of the Sober e-mail worm has started spreading as an attachment that claims to be an old class photo sent by a schoolmate. But if recipients open the file, they don't see a picture of themselves in braces. Instead, a worm tries to steal their information and then mail itself to others. This could also include e-mail that purposes to contain family photos. Make sure your anti-virus program is up to date. Malware embedded in photos is not new but a new round of virus is in the wild.

Please notice I have started to put spaces before and after the @ sign in my email address to prevent worms, viruses, and robots from harvesting them. If you would like to correspond, just remove the spaces.
With practices like this we can and will the fight against those who would do us harm. This procedure will work until those with harvesting engines revise their protocol.
Another precaution I take to prevent "spoofing" of mail to you by others is to insert -----a series of dashes and a codeword in the subject box following the subject. This can not be spoofed by those who have harvested my adderss. Some of my mail friends are doing this also and it gives us the green light to open any mail or attachment. Try it you'll like it, we do.
A short bio for
Rice, (Henry) Grantland
Sportswriter, born in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA. A graduate of Vanderbilt University, he began as a reporter with the Nashville News (1901). After working as a sportswriter for other Southern newspapers, he joined the New York Mail (1910), then joined the New York Tribune (later the Herald Tribune) (1911–30), with time out for service in France during World War 1 (1918–19). After leaving the Tribune, he wrote a widely syndicated column, ‘The Sportlight’, and made a series of short films on sports, and was in charge of selecting the All-American football team for Collier's magazine (1926–54). Considered the dean of American sportswriters, his syndicated columns included some of sport's most memorable phrases, including those describing Notre Dame's football backfield as ‘The Four Horsemen’. A prolific versifier, one of his poems included the famous line, ‘When the One Great Scorer comes to write against your name/He marks - not that you won or lost - but how you played the game’.
