CAPT. JAMES J. WOMACK - 1834-1922
James J. Womack was the son of Abner Clemons Womack, b. North Carolina, February 7, 1799,'and the grandson of Abner Womack, b. Virginia, 1774. His father and grand parents came to-Warren County, Tennessee in 1810. "Capt. Jim" was born in Warren County, July 7, 1834 and died,in McMinnville, July 18, 1922. On March 10, 1862 he was married to Miss Tennie G. Amonett of Celina, Tennessee. They left no descend ents. When Tennessee entered the Confederacy he was made captain of Company E of the famous Sixteenth Regiment, Tennessee Volunteers. After peace was restored he began the practice of law in McMinnville. He later published the NASHVILLE EVENING NEWS, was a teacher in Cumberland Female College, McMinnville and superintendent of Warren County Schools. Among his various writings is his widely quoted Civil War Diary. Other Writings include the sketch of the Womack family published in the June issue of WOMACK GENEALOGY.
A WORD FROM THE EDITOR
As announced in the June 1960 issue of WOMACK GENEALOGY this will be the final issue due to lack of financial support. We desire to express to each one who has in any way contributed to the work sincere thanks, also to express our appreciation for the many words of commendation, some of which we hope to have space to cuote or refer to.
Mr. William Perry Johnson, Box 531, Raleigh, North Carolina, professional genealogist and publisher of the NORTH CAROLINIAN,who contributed much material to the issues prior to 1960, has declined, due to the press of personal affairs, to write any more for our magazine. Mrs. Clifton Wolfe, secretary of the Association, has furnished much material from AThich will be abstracted items of interest for this last issue. In former issues we have given proofs and sources of material. Now we must omit some of this and abbreviate our remarks because of lack of space in this issue so that we may mention as many items as possible, trusting that this will be helpful to those who Wish to pursue the research further.
Since it falls upon a few of us to prepare material for this issue and due to the wide interest in the early family in this area of Tennessee this number of WOMACK GENEALOGY will have much space devoted to the family of Thomas and Louvisa Rice Womack. A few years ago we prepared a book of their generations in which, as we suggested at that time, some errors were made, some of which have since been found and corrected. This book with all of its short comings did stir up some interest in further research and resulted in the collection of much more data, some of which is offered here. It is our intention sometime in the future to prepare a more comprehensive book on the family, so we welcome and invite all information that our readers and cousins can send us to this end.
The Thomas Womack referred to above was born about 1743. in our book referred to above we mentioned several of his sons who came to Warren and adjoining counties in the early 1800s. Some remained here, others either returned to N. C. or went elsewhere. In our book we gave a fairly complete list of the descendants of Abner., James, William, Abraham and their sister Lucy, who marred a Womack and whose son, Isham Rice Womack, came to Coffee County. All of these came into this area between 1800 and 1815.
At the time we wrote our book we knew but little of Anderson but have since learned more which we now offer. Anderson, b. 1768t was a son of Thomas and Louvisa Rice Womack. In 1794 he received a grant of land from the State of North Carolina. In 1802 he sold it and in 1803 he appeared on the tax list of Jackson County, Tennessee. This may not be the Anderson Womack of Rutherford County, North Carolina, but since he did not buy land again in Rutherford County, North Carolina until October 30, 1805 he had plenty of time for a trip to Tennessee. Fifty years later Putnam County, Tennessee was taken in part from Jackson County and the 1860 census of Putnam,County shows three of Anderson's grand children living in that area. Anderson was married in 1793 to Fanny Dobbins, sister of Drury Dobbins, a Methodist preacher. Their Children's names were furnished by a descendant, also named Anderson Womack, now living in Mill Spring, North Carolina, who
WOMACK GENEALOGY 123
states that he and the remaining grandchildren of Anderson's son., Gassaway, believe the list to be correct, although not necessarily given in order of their birth: 1. William., 2. Sidney, 3. Thomas.,
1794 in North Carolina, 4. Nancy, m. 1828p Simon Davis, 5. Polly, 6. Willis, m. 1831,, Phebe Green, 7. Abraham, b. 1805p 8. Sally, m. William Davis, 9. Lucinda, m. 1832, George Davis., 10. Eliza,, m. 1832, Richard Philbeck, 11. Anna, b. 1799, m. 1837, d. 1881, m. John Davis, 12. Gassaway., b. 1808, d. 1869, m. 1838, Martha Parker, 13. Andrew.. 14. Arena, m. 1842, Miner Lequire,, 15. Drury Anderson was still living in 1834 but must have died before 1840. He was mentioned in the 1820 N. C. Census at which date there were in the home three boys and six girls. [We enjoyed a short visit two years ago with Anderson Womack at Mill Spring, N. C. He is a re tired school teacher in his 70s and has done much research on the Womack family. 0. B. W.]
Anderson's son Thomas and wife Elizabeth mentioned in the 1820 Census of Warren County had a son Nathan., b. N. C.p 1817 and a daughter Nancy, b. Tenn.y 1819. Evidently they moved to Tennessee between 1817 and 1819. Thomas lived in Warren County at the times of the 1820, 1830 and 1840 Censuses. He was mentioned in the 1850 Census of Cannon County and owned land there in 1844. He and Eliza beth are also mentioned in the 1860 Census of Cannon County and evidently he died there before the 1870 Census. His granddaughter, in an affidavit stated that she was born in 1873, a daughter of John Newton Womack who was the son of Thomas. She also stated that Thomas died at the home of his son, John Newton Womack in Cannon County., and she thought he died before she was born. Her name was Julia Ann Davenport, Lebanon, Tenn. [We visited her two or three years ago. 0. B. W.]
The children of Thomas and Elizabeth Womack were Nathan, b.
N. C.p 1817. The other children all b. in Tennessee, were, Nancy.,
b. 1819, m. Abraham Ford, Robert G., b. 1832., Willis, b. 1836,
Drury. b. 1838 and Amos, b. 1841. These dates are from the 1850 Census of Cannon County, however actual date of Amos, b, July 19, 1840 in Warren County., d. March 9, 1908., m. Malinda Davis,, b. 1844p d. April 17, 1909. Other children of Thomas and Elizabeth were, Anderson, John Newton, Frances, (m. John Welch), Tempy, (Temperance), Russells, and James Jasper. Most of these children lived in Cannon County. Anderson and Amos lived in Warren County. Nancy and husband Abraham Ford were found in Warren, DeKalb, Putnam and Bledsoe Counties.
Not much is known of the Womacks in White County. In a state ment made July 15, 1956 Norman Womack of Doyle, White County, Tenn., b. September 8, 1897, mentioned the name of his great grandfather, Billy Womack, birtbdate unknown. [We wonder if he was Anderson's son, William. One William P. Womack had a land grant in White County September 17, 1828. Norman's grandfather, James Knowles Womack, b. June 19, 1828 d. January 2?, 1912, m. lst Nancy Crim, 2nd Sarah Crim, and he gave the names of their sixteen children., one of them being Aaron Anderson Womack, b. April 4. 1854, d. September 15, 1912, the father of Norman. Norman said he was told by his grandfather James Knowles Womacko that four brothers came with(Billy, J.K.W. father) and settled between White County and Nashville, one probably in Jackson County. This, of course is tradition.
124 WOMACK GENEALOGY
But --- the tax list of Jackson County, 1803 mentioned Anderson
Womack, supposed to be son of Thomas and Louvisa. 1850 Census of
White County, Visit #504 mentioned William Womack, age 63, b. N. C. (1787),, Melvina E., age 16, and others. Also Visit 611, James K. (or N.) Womack, 33, wife, Nancy, 28. (This could be James Knowles above., b. 1828 and lst wife, Nancy Crim.] A Drury Womack has been mentioned in White County. [Anderson had a son Drury, also Ander son's granddaughter Nancyp m. Abraham Fordp,lived nearabout at times.] A land grant dated December 19, 1814 in White County was given to David Womack. These facts help to substantiate Normants statement above.
Those who may be interested in a further run down of the descendants of Thomas and Elizabeth Womack can get it from Mrs. Sammie Davenport, Route 2. Daylight, Tennessee, a descendant.
We wish to remind our readers at this point that the Warren County Womack Reunion continues each year in McMinnville, Tennessee on the Third Sunday in September at 1:00 p. m.
Before closing these remarks it may be well, while on the subject of the "Tennessee Womacks", to state that three large and well-known branches of the family settled in the state during the early days. The first came before the state was established and was identified with the Watauga Association. This branch presum ably came from Virginia. The branch descended from Thomas and Louvisa Rice Womack came from Virginia by way of Rutherford Countyp North Carolina and vicinity and settled in Warren and adjoining counties in Tennessee. Another branch came directly from Virginia and settled in the Tennessee counties of Wilson, Rutherford and Bedford. Mrs. Lucile Womack Bates of Nashville has contributed an article on this branch. This article appears on other pages of this issue.
In the June issue we asked for contributions of data suitable for publication in this, the final number of WOMACK GENEALOGY. This request resulted in many many letters containing data on the Womack family and this issue is made up largely of the material contributed. An effort was made to publish all contributions submitted, even though the added pages would further increase our financial deficits however space was not found for all material sent.
As was mentioned in the June issue WOMACK GENEALOGY is being discontinued with this issue due to lack of sufficient funds to continue. It is hoped that our financial deficit may be removed through the sale of back issues of the magazine. With this in mind we have placed a convenient order blank in the back pages of this issue for those interested. A limited number of each issue published is available. Complete sets containing each issue have boen bound together in a sturdy board cover and are offered at a price lower than the original total membership. It is hoped that many will take advantage of this offer.

WOMACK LAND ENTRIES.. WARREN COUNTY, TENNESSEE
(Compiled by Walter Womack, McMinnville, Tennessee)
The Warren County Entries are bound in four books.
The Books have not been given a number, but on the backbone of each book is printed the entry number the book begins and ends with. The books have apparently been rebound from smaller booksp for the page numbers will continue in sequence to some point and then drop back to page 1 two or three times in each book. We have referred to the page number and section and have called each book by the number of its sequence in the group, even though the book does not have that number printed on it.
Book No. 1 contains Entries 1 to 2426. Book No. 2 contains Entries 2427 to 4596. Book No. 3 is missing. It contained Entries 4597 to 6582. Book No. 4 contains no Womack Entries. These books are noted on the backbone of the books as Grant Books, but they contain only entries. Grants were probably issued from these entries by the State of Tennessee later.
Under the Third Treaty of Tellicop dated October 25, 1805 the Cherokee Indians ceded to the United States all of the territory now comprising Warren County. Thousands immediately rushed in to claim grants issued for service in the Revolution. It was not until 1823 that the State of Tennessee authorized land entries in the area.
The wording of each entry is brief and contains only necessary information. The entry of Drury Womack (No. 362) is copied in its entirety. A note in the first book states that a record of the surveys is in the Surveyor's office at Shelbyville.
The body of one of the early entries: "By virtue of an Act of the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee, passed at Murfreesboro the 22nd of November 1823, entitled An Act to Establish Offices for Receiving Entries for Vacant Lands in the Several Counties in the State lying North and East of the Congressional Reservation Line and North of the Tennessee River."

From Mrs. R. H. Winget, 5330 LaVesta Rr. Fountain City.. Tenn.: "I was in the Lawson McGhee Library, Knoxville, searching for data on the McKinney family of Smith or Wilson County, Tenn. when I came across the record of the Wammack, or Womack family. I suspect I am related to the Womacks but have never quite tied it in as to how. A John Womack was a half-brother to my great-great grandfather, James McKinney, and they migrated at the same time to Illinois in 1820. I am familiar to some extent with the family of Wommacks which migrated to Clay County, IllinoiS, and will send it along if any branches are interested.
BITS OF INFORMATION ON ONE BRANCH OF THE TRIBE OF WOMACK By Lucile Womack Bates (Mrs. W.E.B.) 3810 Bedford, Nashville 12, Tennessee
Family tradition in this branch of the Womack Family says that the Womacks were Scots, that they left Scotland because of their religious beliefs and settled in North Ireland for a time before coming to America. The tradition however, is very indefinite as to when they left Scotland, how long they stayed in Ireland, the year in which they arrived in this country, and the name or names of the first of the family to arrive here.
I have secured enough data from Virginia, Tennessee and Arkansas county records.. in my research, to be able to give the following information on this branch of the family from 1672 until the present as the family followed the course of migration westward over a period of some two hundred years or more.
The earliest Womack in our branch that we are certain of is Richard Womack who was born about 1655 - exact date and place of birth unknown. Our first record of him is in Mar. 15, 1672 when he received a Land Patent of 450 acres in Henrico Co Va. (Virginia Land Office 6- P. 477.) The date and place of his marriage to Mary Puckette - daughter of John and Ann Puckette of Henrico Co., Va. is not known. The Valentine Papers give us information on his approximate age at a given date; his wife's name and age; her parents' names; a description of the location of his land (which helps establish descent for his son and grandson - in description of their land); his date of death (1684); names of his brothers (Abraham, William, Thomas - and possibly John). He was about thirty years old when he died - leaving his wife Mary and two small sons, whose names were Richard and William. There may have been other children whose names we do not know.
Richard Womack (II) born 1676 (apparently in Henrico Co., Va.) died about 1723. He married Elizabeth Puckette (who was probably his first cousin). The date and place of marriage is not known. Richard and Elizabeth Womack had two sons that we know of - Richard (III) who married Ann Childers or Childress, and Alexander. (There may have been other children in this family.)
Alexander Womack married Martha (last name not known). His exact date of birth is not known but it is fairly certain that he was born in Henrico Co., Va. The date of his marriage to Martha
is unknown But he was married prior to Dec 13 1742, for on that
date he and his wife Martha of Dale Parish, Henrico Co., Va. sold 200 acres in that county to Peter Ashbrook, Jr. - land which had been willed to him by his father, Richard Womack. In 1755 he obtained a Patent of 176 acres in Amelia Co., Va. In 1759 he was living in Prince Edward Co., Va. (Prince Edward Co. was formed 1753-4 from Amelia Co.) In 1773 he obtained Patent of 321 acres in Bedford Co. Va. In 1782 he appears on the Personal Property Tax List of Prince Edward Co., Va. He did not appear after 1782 on these lists. July 22, 1782 he sold 176 acres of land in Prince Edward Co.., Va. (This was the 176 acres he patented in Amelia Co.) He wrote his will on Aug. 26.. 1782, while a resident of Prince Edward Co. On April 1, 1784 his will was probated in Campbell Co., Va.--so at sometime between those two,dates-,he must have moved to
Campbell Co.oVa. In 1782 he had purchased 200 acres of land on Felpes Creek in
144 WOMACK GENEALOGY
Campbell Co, Va. In his will of 1782 Alexander Womack mentions his wife Martha; sons-Richard, David, Alexander; daughters - Ann Driscal (Driskill), Elizabeth Mason, Jane Tomison, Martha Rutledge, Judith Richards; and a granddaughter Nancy Womack (but does not mention whose child she was. A James Davis and Nancy G. Womack were married in Campbell Co., Va. in 1792 - father, Mathew Womack, Mathew may have been a son who died prior to the time that Alexander wrote his will.
In 1806-7 Richard Womack and his wife Rachel; Alexander Womack and his wife Sarah; David Womack and his wife Elizabeth sold their lands in Campbell Co., Va. (located mostly on the Stanton River in the southeast corner of the county) and moved to Tennessee accompanied by all or part of the families of their five sisters (for Driskill, Richards, Mason, Tomison, Rutledge names show up consistently in Wilson, Rutherford, Bedford and other adjoining counties in Tennessee in locations where the three brothers and their families settled.)
Alexander Womack (Jr.) was married to Sarah McDearmon in Prince George Co., Va. in 1798. In 1807 he and his wife Sarah sold their land in Campbell Co.., Va. (He may have been married twice. He lived in Lunenburg Co. at one time and in 1792 in Charlotte Co, Va. Elizabeth Womack., Dau. of Alex. Womack married Henry Buckner). Part of his wife's family must have accompanied them to Tennessee for I found McDearmons in the records listed as living near Alexander.
No record has been found of David Womack's marriage to Elizabeth nor is her last name known. The Bedford Co., Tenn. Tax Lists for 1812 show the following names pertinent to our Womack's who moved from Campbell Co.,, Va. to Bedford Co., Tenn.: Abras Crain,, Joel Crain, Michael Mason., Michael Pruitt, John Richard, Shadrack Richard, Robert Rutledge, Alexander Warmick, David Warmick, David Warmick Jr., William Warmick, Henry Warmith. Bedford Co, Tenn. Tax Lists for 1836 show the following names: John E. Mason, Thos. W. Mason, William Mason.. David Richards, William Richards, Hawkins Wamack, Michael Wammack, P. H. Prewitt, Michael (R) Wommack. Bedford Co., Tenn. Tax Lists for 1837:- C. M. Wammack, Michael Wammack, Hawkins Wammack, P. H. Prewitt. The 1820 census for Bedford Co., Tenn. p. 29 lists Josiah Wammack and Hawkins Wamack. P. 31 lists Michael Wammack, David Wammack, Alexander Wammack, and William Wamack in this order. P. 32 lists Henry Wammack. Most of these people owned land in the vicinity of Flat Creek., a branch of Duck River,, and located in the southeast corner of Bedford Co. - near the Lincoln Co. line. Lincoln Co., Tenn. Tax Lists for 1836 list: Berry J. Womack, James Edde, E. H. Womack, some eight or nine of the Rutledge family., Masons, Pruitts, Lewis Wamack, Henry P. Womack, Thomasons, James Wamack. Alexander Womack died prior to 1846. I have no information on the two Davids after the 1820 census.
Richard Womack, son of Alexander Womack of Campbell Co.., Va. moved his family to Wilson Co... Tenn. sometime in the period 1806 -1810. In all probability he rented land and made several crops while he searched for the farm he wanted to buy., for Tax Lists show his son Joel Womack in Wilson Co., Tenn. in 1806-7-8. One of his daughters married in Wilson Co. in 1808 and another in 1809. They may have been living with relatives who had preceded them from Virginia. In 1810 Richard Womack purchased 330 acres of land
WOMACK GENEALOGY 145
situated on Round Lick Creek in Wilson Co. He died in 1819. In his will he mentions his sons - Joel (deceased), Richard, and Elijah; daughters - Susannah Hubbard, Elizabeth McKinney, Jane Shores, Lucy Jones, and Patsy Womack (who later married William Shanks); a grandson, John Womack; Michael R. Womack and Elizabeth Crane, the children of his son Joel; his wife Rachel. Nothing is known about the date and place of Richard's marriage to Rachel or her last name. Rachel died ca. 1839.
Joel Womack was probably the oldest son. He was married to Sally Pruitt - daughter of Michael Pruitt in Campbell Co. Va. in 1800. Joel was in Wilson Co., Tenn. as early as 1806. According to Pruitt family tradition Joel and his brother-in-law, Moses Pruitt were on a deer hunt when Joel was accidentally shot and killed. His wife and two children - Michael R. and Elizabeth must have lived with the Pruitts in Rutherford and Bedford counties for I find no further record of them in Wilson Co. According to Richard Womack's will his granddaughter Elizabeth was married to some one named Crane when the will was written in 1819. No marriage record has been found thus far. Michael R. Womack married his cousin Judah T. Rutledge in Rutherford Co., Tenn. in Oct. 1825. The 1830 census of Rutherford Co., Tenn. lists Michael Womack, his wife and three daughters. In 1836 he is on the tax lists of Bedford Co., Tenn. He is not on the 1837 tax list of that county and I do not find him in the 1840 census for Bedford Co.
Richard Womack, Jr. married Agnes Smith in Wilson Co., Tenn. in 1812. They had five or six children: Joel W. (who married Mary Alexander in Wilson Co., Tenn. in 1833); John T.(decendants of Richard Jr. are pretty vague - both as to his name, and the section of the country to which he migrated as a young man); James Smith; William Amzi; Mary Jane; and a daughter who died in childhood. After the death of his first wife Richard Jr. married Mrs. Elizabeth Puckette Bailey and to them were born: Sophronia; Sarah; Frank; Russell; Repps.
Id not have any further information on Joel W. Womack after 1847 in Wilson Co.., Tenn.; and only the vague report that there was a son John, and that he went west as a young man and the family had no further news of him. James Smith Womack was married lst in 1839 to Dorcas Hill (children: Malvinnia who married William D. Thompson in 1854; John Knox Womack who married Mary Jane Scales; Samuel T. - who died in infancy; America Ann - who married Hiram G. Patton in 1867; William H. - who died in infancy; Josephine C. - who married Eli Vaught; James Richard - who married Elizabeth Jane Phillips in 1880; Alexander Pendleton.) James Smith Womack married 2nd - to Mrs. Erixney Elenor Bogle in 1857 - (child: E. E.(Dollie) who married E. J. Berry in 1875 He was married third to Mary Anderson Vickin 1859 (children: Margaret - unmarried; Jordan F. died age 13; Agnes Louanna - who married William Shelah Henderson, 1880) Practically all of James Smith Womack's descendants have been traced to the present generation.
William Amzi Womack married Martha Jane Allen in 1856 (children: James Richard - who died in infancy; George Thompson - who married Emma Frances Young in 1884; William Hansford - who never married; Sarah Agnes - who married J. E. Berry in 1896; Carrie Bettie - i@rho married James William Midgett in 1887; Hattie Nevada who never
146 WOMACK GENEALOGY
married; Robert Allen - who married Selma Jennie Thompson in 1902).
Mary Jane Womack married William Vantrease in 1845 (children Sarah Ann who married Will Bass; Jacob; Richard; Agnes; Matt.)
Sophronia Womack married Joseph Nettles in 1865 (children: Callie Nettles; Richard Z. Nettles.) Sarah Womack never married.
Frank Puckette Womack married Martha Grissom (children: Emma Mary; Arthur Fletcher; Dee Laura; Albert Richard; Fannie Louise; Douglas Wilson; Minnie Agnes; Estelle Beatrice; Elmer).
Repps Womack married Dellia Ann (children: Howell; Homer; Kitty; Austin; John; Rosie).
Russell Womack - names of wife and children not known.
All of the children of Richard Womack Jr. were born in Tenn. and all remained in Tenn. except for Frank, Repps, and Russell who moved to Texas about 1890-1900. I have some information on descendants of two of Frank's children but nothing on the families of Repps and Russell Womack or the rest of Frank's children.
Efforts to trace Susannah Womack Hubbard's descendants have failed thus far. The same holds true for Elizabeth Womack McKinney, Jane Womack Creighton Shores and Patsy Womack Shanks. Lucy Womack Jones had eight children. I have the line complete on Calvin and Alfred Jones but nothing so far on Martha, Emilyp Richard, Fathy and William F. Jones Jr.
Elijah Womack, third son of Richard Womack, was born in Campbell Co... Va. in 1794. He came to Wilson Co., Tenn. with his father 1806-10. In 1815 he married Elizabeth Patterson and spent the remainder of his life as a farmer in the Round Lick Creek community. To Elijah and Elizabeth were born three children: Richard in 1819; Agnes Julia Ann in 1821; Samuel Donnell in 1824.

To them were born Elijah Bransford; Joseph Pitts; William; Samuel Martin; Mary Ann; James Wilson; Agnes Julia Ann; Richard Asbury; Levinnia Elizabeth; Lee Andrew; Martha Jane; George Pierce. (The last four were born in Benton Co., Ark. after the family had migrated to Arkansas by wagon caravan in 1855.

He lived in Texas., Okla., Ark. and Kansas during his lifetime and his children and grandchildren are widely scattered today.
Levinnia Elizabeth Womack married Alfred M. Kirkham in Benton Co. Ark. in 1871. They later moved to Texas where her descendants were living in 1925 when last heard from. (children: T. Pierce Kirkham; Charlie; Amanda; Mae; Newt.)
Lee Andrew Womack married Leanna Annette Hall in Benton Co., Ark. in 1876 (children: Melissa Agnes; Elijah Bascom; Martha Elizabeth; Robert Munsey; Anna Grace; Mary Summers; Richard Wesley; Martin Luther; Berta Cleveland). Lee Andrew Womack moved his family to western Okla. about 1877-78.
Martha Jane Womack married Marcus Edwin Mayo in Benton Co., Ark. in 1881 (children: Vada Pearl; Ada Blanche; Elizabeth Lee; Perry Winton; Edwin Clinton; Arthur Elbert; William Roy; Richard Ray; Guy Pierce). The first four children were born in Benton Co., Ark. Then the family moved to western Okla. at the same time her brothers Lee and George Pierce moved. The next three children were born in Okla. The family returned to Benton Co., Ark. and the two youngest were born there.
George Pierce Womack married Martha Jane Neil in Benton Co., Ark. in 1884 (children: Vinnie Neil; Charles Gallaway; Beulah May; Carl Abbot; Morris Hosmer; Horace Jewel). This family moved to Greer Co., Okla. ca 1888 after the birth of the first two children. The rest of the children were born in Greer Co. and now live in Okla. and Texas.
Agnes Julia Ann Womack (dau. of Elijah) married John William Donnell in Wilson Co. Tenn. in 1836. They both died at an early age leaving two children - Armelia Elizabeth Martha Donnell and George Fulton Donnell - for Elijah and Elizabeth to care for. Martha married Thomas Bass (children: Julia and Thomas Jr. Julia Bass married Thomas E. Bass in 1878 and had children: William Ethel; Ressie; Hallie; Ina; Thomas Elbert; Judson; Hugh; Lorene; Baker). Thomas Bass Jr. married Sally Ann Oakley and had two children who died in infancy. George Fulton Donnell married Nancy Ann Jones (his cousin) in Wilson Co., Tenn. in 1867 (children: Laura Agnes; John Calvin; Izza Uin; Cauley Martin; William Howard; Jessie Cyrus; Jennie Susan; Brunette).
Samuel Donnell Womack (2nd. son of Elijah) married Elizabeth Nettles in Wilson Co., Tenn. in 1841 (children: John A; Priscilla Elizabeth; Agnes Julia Ann; Benjamin Franklin; Joseph W.; Joel; Elijah Richard). John was killed in the Civil War; Priscilla Elizabeth married Henry Thompson (children: John Horace; Richard Agnes; Gentry). Agnes Julia Ann married Alexander Young (children:
148 WOMACK GENEALOGY
Laura E. Valeria; Nova - possibly others); Benjamin Franklin and Joseph W. died in childhood; Joel died in infancy; Eli ah Richard married Mary Louise Donnell of Wilson Co... Tenn. (chil@ren: Odell;. Agnes; Samuel; Edna)
Richard Womack who brought his family to Tenn. spelled his name WOMACK. Richard., Jr. and his descendants spell the name WAMACK except for some of the present generation who have returned to the original spelling of WOMACK. Elijah spelled his name WAMMACK. His son Samuel D. spelled it WAMACK as do his descendants. Elijahts son Richard spelled it WAMACK and Richard's sons spelled it Womack - Wommack - Wammack. All of these men were farmers and some of them were also nurserymen - accounting for many fine orchards in early Tenn. and Ark. Only in the past two or three generations have the descendants branched out into the ministry law, teaching, etc. and into the business field. Some of the present generation are still farmers. Some of these Womacks have served in the army during times of war. Others have missed service because they were either too old or too young to serve.
S 0 S TO ALL READERS OF THIS MAGAZINE
There are some individuals in this family whom I have not been able to trace. It is my hope that some readers of this last issue of the Womack Genealogy Magazine will have some information on these people and will get in touch with me. Part of the family settled in Bedford Co., Tenn. after leaving Virginia. Loss of so many records in that county before 1860 has hampered my research. It may be that descendants of Womacks in Bedford and Lincoln counties in Tenn. - pooling their information with mine - will be able to bridge the 1806-1860 period and pick up on this earlier information.
Iintend to continue my research on this branch of the family and eventually place copies of the finished product in various libraries. IF YOU ARE A DESCENDANT or if - in your research - you have run across ANY information on the following missing members will you please contact Mrs. W. E. Bates, 3810 Bedford, Nashville 12, Tenn. so that I may follgw up on your information and make the record as complete as possible.
John Womack - born ca. 1800 - 1805, probably in Campbell Co. Va. Lived with his grandfather (Richard Womack) in Wilson Co., Tenn. Married 1820 to Milly Webster. Nothing known definitely after this date. May have migrated to the west. May have moved to Bedford Co., Tenn. and then to Ga. about 1845 as Bedford Co., Tenn. court records show a John Womack in that county prior to that time.
Joel Womack (or Wamack) - son of Richard, Jr. Married Mary Alexander in 1833 in Wilson Co., Tenn. Family tradition says he went to Missouri,
John T. Womack - son of Richard, Jr. Family tradition says he went west in his youth.

ANOTHER WOMACK VIRGINIA WILL FOUND
(The following letter was received from Mrs. Virginia Erwin Page., 5017 Loughboro Rd. N.W. Washington 16,, D.C., together with a Womack will not previously Published. Both the letter and the will are printed here in their entirety.
Womack Family Association
I was very sorry to note in the last issue of the Womack Genealogy that the Dec. issue this year will be the final edition. You have done a wonderful job. Too bad that is has to cease.
Iam enclosing a photostatic copy of the Will of William Womack of Henrico Co., Va. dated May 14, 1718. This will was not listed in your list of Womacks who died in Virginia prior to 1800 (Vol. II No. l, Pg 35). I examined the original will for some time and have spent weeks on the photostat in an attempt to de cipher each word. Some words are really impossible due to folds in the original. Fortunately, the names of his children and wife are quite clear. I am sending along a copy of my best effort and hope that some of you may be able to fill in a few of the gaps.
I have two Womack ancestor lines. My fatherts mother was Mary Ann Womack who married Henry Clay Erwin Nov. 28, 1875 in Cherokee Co., Ala. Her father was William Otis Womack who married Harriet Jane Sanford Dec. 1. 1858 in Cherokee Co. His father was Jesse Womack who married Amanda Melvine Simmons. I have no further in formation about him.
My mother's great-great-great grandmother was Lucy Womack (see your Item 44, Vol. II No. I, Pg. 48). I have photostatic copies of the papers now in possession of Sam Lawrence (he has now moved from Centre to Auburn, Ala.) They established that Lucy Womack.who married Thomas Lawrence was the daughter of Martha ("Patsey") Puckett and Henry Womack. We know that Martha and Henry lived in Henrico Co . Va. In 1737 Henry Womack and wife Martha sued John
150 WOMACK GENEALOGY
Puckett (administrator of the estate of Richard Puckett) in Henrico Co,
Henry, mentioned in the above will of William Womack was born between 1702 and 1718 (under sixteen in 1718). From all available records in Va. we have found only one Henry Womack living in Henrico Co. during this period (1702 to 1737). I feel that the Henry above is our Henry who married Martha Puckett. Their daughter Lucy who married Thomas Lawrence had known children:
(1) Thomas Lawrence
(2) John Lawrence (b Jan. 4. 1760 in Va. d Jan. 29, 1841. Gwinnett Co., Ga.) Amer. Rev. soldier; Pension W5310, Archives, Wash., D.C.; Bounty Land Warrent No. 1494 married Sept. 3, 1788 Pittsylvania Co., Va. Bethaland Smith). See "Hist of Gwinnett Co., Ga." by J. C. Flanigan Pgs. 403t 4049 & 405.
(3) James L. Lawrence (b d c 1818 Jefferson Co., Tenn.)
Guardian report on his minor children Book (1805-1832) pg 935 Sept. Session 1818 Jeff. Co., Tenn. He is listed 1790 Wilkes Co.,N.C. (name spelled Lorance); 1800 tax list Jeff. Co.., Tenn. m Jan. 5 1790 Wilkes Co., N.C. Mary Cate.
(4) Henry (b June 12, 1771 in Va. d April 8, 1855. m Winifred Manard.
(5) Lucy (b Nov. 30, 1773 d Dec. 10, 1859. m 1798 Charles Co. Cate. Listed 1830 Census McMinn Co., Tenn. pg 118.
In your Vo. II No. I Pg 35 it is stated "at least 21 Womacks are known to have died in Virginia prior to 1800, the earliest being Richard Womack who died intestate in Henrico Co. in 1684. At the Virginia State Library in Richmond in Henrico Co. Records No. 4 "Orphans Court 1677-1739" on page 1 there is an Account, dated 1677, of cattle belonging to the orphans of William Womeck dec'd presented by Timothy Allen, Jr. The orphans of William are shown as Mary and Thomas Womeck. There is an Abraham Womeck mentioned., but not as an orphan of William.
I hope that you will be able to use the William Womack Will in your Dec. issue or at least that you will list it.
I did not join the Womack Family Association until 1958 and am missing Nos. 1 and II of Vo. I. I would very much like to have copies and am enclosing a check for $3.00 in the hope that you may still have extra copies. If there is an additional charge please let me know.
Again, I am sorry that the wonderful "Womack Genealogy" is not to continue.
Sincerely, (S) Virginia Erwin Page

WOMACK RECORDS IN MISSISSIPPI, ALABAMA AND GEORGIA
Mrs. Alma Hill Robertson., (Mrs. John J.). 1842 North Louisa, Shaw-nee., Oklahoma sends the following on branches of the family in the above states. In addition to the data published below, Mrs. Robertson sends five pages from the Georgia State Archives, which, due to lack of space, is not included in this article. An exerpt from her letter: "I truly regret that WOMACK GENEALOGY is to be discontinued. It has furnished such an abundance of early Womack data. I have worlds of Womack material which has been sent to me but as yet I have been unable to take my line beyond a Richard Womack who was in WashiHgton County, Miss. Territory (now Alabama) by 1805. I have done a good bit of research in Jackson, Mississippi at the Archives, a very small amount in Montgomery, Alabama, some in Washington and Clarke Counties., Alabama for the period of 1800-1820 and a few days of research in the Archives in Atianta.Georgia."

(Note: There is a fragment of an original census of Washington County, M.T. which is supposed to be for the year 1808. It is the section compiled by Capt. William McGraw. This original is in the Archives at Jacksong Mississippi and from it I copied the Womacks and Uriah Dent because his widow (in 1816) married Richard Womack.)

REGISTER OF APPOINTMENTS
By the Governor of Mississippi Territory 1805-1812
Page Name Date Office County
23 Richard Womack 15 August, 1807 Constable Washington
71 Richard Womack 30 March, 1810 Lieutenant 6th Regiment
71 John Womack 30 March, 1810 Captain 6th Regiment
The fly leaf of this register shows the number of regiments in Mississippi Territory and the county or counties of which each regiment consisted. Washington County was a part of 6th Regiment. The above appointments were copied from the original Register in the Archives, Jackson., Mississippi. Also at the same Archives I copied the following from:
Military History of Mississippi Territory by Rowland
"the first detachment of Mississippi Militia in the service of the United States was the sixth., eighth, ninth, and twelfth Regiments. (Washington, Baldwin, Wayne and Greene Counties were exempt from the Call into-Service of the United States because of previous orders.)"
The above refers to the War of 1812 and further reading reveals that these "previous orders" were for fighting the Indians. The account of the Massacre at Ft. Mims in History of Clarke County, Alabama by John Simpson Graham, gives a vivid word picture of battles with the Indians and of the ter rible plight in which the white settlers of Washington., Clarke and adjacent counties found themselves during the War of 1812.

MARRIAGE RECORDS, CLARKE COUNTY, ALABAMA
Volume A. page 35. Richard Wamuch married Sarah Dent Nov. 17, 1816
Clarke County, Mississippi Territory, Wm. Murrill, J.P.
Volume A,, page 41. Joseph Wamuck married Sarah Wright, July 3l,l8l7 David Taylorp J. P.
Volume A, page 233. Francis Womack married Anny Thornton Oct. 9,1829
John Kumington, Minister.
Note: I am a descendant of the above Richard Womack. He and Francis
Womack were brothers and this was a second marriage for each.
Richard Womack moved to Simpson County, Mississippi about 1825. Francis (often called "Frank") was there by 1830. I am eager to establish their parentage. I think they may have been sons of the Jesse and Phebe Womack shown in the Tax Rolls I have given but do not know. Neither have I any idea as to who Jesse and Phebe were and where they came from. Richard and Francis Womack were both born in Georgia. In their children and grandchildren the names Jessep Richardo Mansel, John, Vashti, and Lucinda keep recurring. Yet these names seem to be common in all Womack lines I have material on, so I am still at a loss.
Richard Womack, who married (2) Sarah Walker Dent, had sons, Richard, Jesse, and Abram J. by his first wife and Mansel by this second wife. I am a descendant of Abram J. Womack. He was born in Washington Co. 23 November, 1814.
RECORDS COPIED FROM THE CALVIN WOMACK BIBLE:
(Note: I copied these records in August 1958. These Womacks are not of my line but I do have a good bit of material on them, They came from St. Helena Parisho La. The birth dates of
WOMACK GENEALOGY 157
Richard Womack and his brothers and sister go far enough back to be of interest to someone, possibly some reader of WOMACK GENEALOGY).
This Bible was published in 1851 and at the time I saw it it was in excellent condition - a beautiful old Bible. It belonged to James Albert Womack, Rt. 4, Mendenhall, Mississippi who had already given it (at least in writing) to his son.. James B. Womack. The Bible was given to Calvin Womack by his mother, Emily Womack whose maiden name was Emily Thames. She married (1) ? Miller, (2) Richard Womack. This accounts for the Miller children whose births are recorded in this Bible. Whether or not the writing is that of Emily Thames Miller Womack I do not know, but the part recorded by her is in a beautiful and precise handwriting. Records added later are much more careless in grammar and penmanship. No death dates are given. An inscription on the fly leaf of the Bible explains its ownership but is not in the handwriting of the records made by Emily Thames Miller Womack. It reads:
Calvin Womack's Bible
Presented by his mother who requested him to read
and study it well and learn to be wise
Remember thy Creator in the Day of thy Youth

ANOTHER ABRAHAM WOMACK BIBLE RECORD
Mrs. Mattie Lowell Wardlaw Mettetal., (Mrs. Ray W.) P. 0. Box 84, Johnson City, Tennessee was in McMinnville early this year ,looking for data on her Wood ancestors who were connected to the Womack family of Louisiana. Mrs. Mettetal sends a copy of the bible Record of her ancestor Abraham B. Womack. This record and excerpts from her letter follow:
"In McMinnville I found the will of Barthalamew Wood,, wife Martha, had five daughters and three sons, Sam Harden Wood, Curtis Wood, and William Wood. Will filed Nov. 1824. I am still wondering how a Womack born in Louisiana happened to marry a girl from McMinnville, Tennessee. I am sending you a copy of the bible record of my Abraham B. Womack. It is not the same as the record you recently published. Abraham Womack., Sr., born April 12, 1782, Georgia., was a brother to my Jacob Green Womack, and Col. Abner Womack. This Abraham Womack, Sr. had a son, Abraham, Jr. who
WOMACK GENEALOGY 159
married a Matilda Tillery and left a son, Gonzolo Pizarre. (I wonder where this name came from?) G. P. in my bible notes that he is the son of Abraham Jr. and married Melissa A. Womack, daughter of Elizabeth G. and A. B. Womack., February 4o 1880. McComb, Mississippi is my home. I don't know these people, however. Jacob Green Womack's line and history is tracked down to my great grand mother, Nancy Jane Womack who married Edgar J. Warren. They had one child, my grandmother,, Addie Warren who married Leon Magee."

IOWA FAMILY WOMACKS
Chester C.

Womacks's APPENDIX that I sent you on July 23, 1958, Said APPENDIX bearing the date of April 1. 1914-11 The document referred to above appears as follows:
"April 1. 1914 - This appendix of the undersigned now offers to Robert V. H. Womacks and wife for adoption and approval of them in regard to that name given to that noble grandson of ours, to change the interpretation of the middle initial of the letter "T". in my name. Would say that it stands for "Terry" which was the given name of my father and your grandfather and which was the hereditary name of your great-grandmother whose husband fought on the side of independence of the Thirteen Original Colonies; also your grandfather who fought in the war with Great Britain in One Thousand Eight Hundred and Twelve (1812) to protect the independence of these states; also the undersigned who fought against the Rebellion of '6l to '65. Hoping that you will adopt the above suggestion, I am, Very respectfully, your father, (s) Lemuel T. Womacks."
