My Womack Ancestors


William Womack

Tradition says WILLIAM WOMACK was born Abt. 1620 in Possibly Kent, England, and died Bef. 1685 in Bermuda Hundred, Henrico Co., VA. He married MARY ALLEN Abt. 1643 in Henrico Co., VA. She was born Abt. 1625 in Possibly, England, and died Bef. 1685 in Bermuda Hundred, Henrico Co., VA.

William is believed to have come to Henrico County, Virginia between 1630 and 1640. There were three daughters Ann, Mary, and Jane. Ref: Valentine Papers, Vol. III, pp. 1766-1802. ( Compiler has not been able to find the following references, need documentation).  Later research credits his place of birth as Wragby, Lincoln shire, England. William patented land in the Bermuda Hundred Section of Henrico Co., Va. in 1665. Ref. CDXVII Century Applic. on William Womack b 1620 Eng/Va. in 1657. William Womack on tithing list of Henrico Co., Va. in 1679. Va. Rec. Bk. 1677-92 pp. 492, 716, 762. Va. State Library. Also "Rand, Hale & Allied Families" by Nettie Hale Rand, 1940. Other references: Valentine Papers pp. 1772, 1774.William & Mary College Quarterly V-24 p. 208. Virginia Historical Magazine, Minutes of the Council and General Court of Colonial Virginia p 369.Chesterfield Co. Va. p. 48 by Lutz. The Womack name is spelled with many variations in the records: Womack, Wamack, Wamock, Wammack, Wamoche, Wommack, Waamock, Wamocke, Woomack, Wamic, Wamick, Waymack, Waimac, Womac and many others. The most used pronunciation of the families in North Carolina and Tennessee put the accent on the first syllable as Wom'ack. In a few instances an "r" was used in the first syllable as War'mack. 
Tradition says William Womack married Mary Jane Allen (I have my doubts about this name as middle names were rare before the mid to late 1700's, possibly Mary or Jane), a widow who died prior to 1685. William immigrated from the British Isles probably during the early 1630/40's settling in the area known as the "Bermuda Hundred." The family became members of the first Quaker Colony which according to church records, originated in 1656. These members were for a large part of English extraction from the Tide Water section of Virginia, i.e., Cedar Creek and Henrico County. Although proof is lacking, our Womacks are believed to have English roots.

Richard Womack


1. RICHARD2 WOMACK (WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1655 in Henrico Co., Virginia, and died Bef. 25 Apr 1684 in Henrico Co., Virginia. He married MARY PUCKETT Abt. 1675 in Henrico Co., Virginia, daughter of JOHN PUCKETT and ANN JEFFERYS. She was born Abt. 1656 in Henrico Co., Virginia, and died Abt. 1692 in Henrico Co., Virginia.


Richard received a patent for 450 acres of land in Henrico Co., March 15, 1672. This land lays on the North side of the Appomattox River adjoining Aspen Swamp. Richard, a trader with the Indians, was killed probably by the Seneca Indians while returning from a trip to the interior. After Richards death Mary married John Granger sometime around the 1st of April 1690.

Note: If Richard Patented this property in March 1672 he was barely 17 years old. Usually this process took some time, so when did he begin, when he was 15 or 16. This leads many researchers to believe there may have been an elder Richard. Being we have found no proof of William being the patriarch, I can see the reasoning behind a Richard being the patriarch. More work needed here. RGW

In Captain W. Byrds Letters

To Thomas Grendon per Zack Taylor.... April the 25th 1684.

Dear Sir,

This I hope will come to your hands to congratulate your safe arrival in England, having little news to send, all being well at your house. The general Assembly is now sitting, and your neighbor Hill Speaker. I hope all things will go on smoothly.

Old Sturdivant, his son Millner Shipy, Womacke, and Hugh Cassell were all killed by the Indians in their returne from the Westward, about 30 miles beyond Ochanechee. What prejudice it is to see mee my guesse, they having (had they come well in) made a very advantagous journey. On Easter monday I spoke with 50 Seneca Indians about 12 miles above my house; they had promised to behave themselves hereafter very peacable toward the English. I shall not trouble you further at present, but with my best respects and service to yourselfe and all our friends, wishing all health and prosperity, I am, Sir.

Your reall friend and Servent


Jack Warren and Will Randolph our worthy Burgesses, frequently

drinke your health

Pray and be mindfull of my Shoes and Boots & C.

In a book entitled, "Adventurers of Purse and Person," the following about the death of Richard Womack in 1684. On pp 351 after citing the story of the death of "Old Sturdivant, his son, Millner, Shipy, Womacke and Hugh Cassell..." from William Byrd I, in a foot note the following is given: " 18 Marion Tinling, ed., The Correspondence of the Three Williams Byrds of Westover, Virginia, 1684-1776 (Charlottesville, 1977), I, pp. 15-16. The date of this letter may have been later in the year. Letters of administration on the estates of John Milner, Thomas Shippy, Richard Womeck (and John Davis) were granted to their widows at the same Henrico County court, 1 Aug 1684, and all of these men's inventories show some connection with the Indian trade: Indian boys and girls, trading knives, a tomahawk, Indian baskets(Henrico Co. Wills and Deeds 1677-92, pp 282-90). The Occaneechee Trail or Path led from Fort Henry (Petersburg) through Occaneechee Town (near present Clarksville, Mecklenburg County), close to the Forks of the Dan and Roanoke rivers. Twenty miles west of that would be present Person Co., N.C."

Thomas testified in the John hog theft thing, and yes John Granger, married to Richard's widow, was the plaintiff in the hog theft thing, but nothing in those records says John was related to those other Womacks. Today I found in my written notes of reading the FHL microfilm of the Henrico County Court Record book for 1677-93, for p.168, the following: "Richard Womecke of Parish of Bristoll . . . for love and affection . . . to brother John of same . . . 100 ac. on which Richard now lives . . ."; "line of Thos Puckett, Peter Ashbrook . . .

abt 1706 when Richard was 30, he married Elizabeth PUCKETT[5], daughter of John PUCKETT Jr. (1652-) & Elizabeth ALLEN, in Bristol Parish, Henrico County, VA. Born abt 1678. Elizabeth died in 1731, she was 53.


Thomas Womack


1. THOMAS4 WOMACK (RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1706 in Henrico County, Virginia, and died 1782 in Chesterfield Co., Virginia. He married SARAH WOODSON Abt. 1729 in Chesterfield Co., Virginia, daughter of JOSEPH WOODSON and ELIZABETH MATTOX. She was born 1715 in Chesterfield County, Virginia, and died 21 Apr 1785 in Chesterfield County, Virginia.


Many researchers have Thomas below as the son of Thomas Womack and Mary Farley, however the will of Thomas Womack b abt 1728, and left a will in 1803 in Nottoway Co., VA., proves him to be the Son of Thomas Womack and Mary Farley. This Thomas is believed to be the son of Richard Jr., more research is needed to prove this connection.

Thomas (1706--1780) is established as a son of Richard (c.1676-1723) and wife Elizabeth (no evidence of her maiden name) by an evaluation of the land records. Thomas's holding on Sappony Creek evidently came from his father Richard Jr. His brothers Richard and Matthew are also involved in land transactions on Sappony Creek. These three also appear in 1736 lower Henrico Co. Quit Rent Roll.

Josiah Womack


1. JOSIAH5 WOMACK (THOMAS4, RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1732 in Chesterfield Co., Virginia, and died Bef. 04 Dec 1800 in Nottoway Co., Virginia. He married KEZIAH WILKINSON Abt. 1765, daughter of JOHN WILKINSON and JANE. She was born Abt. 1748 in Amelia Co., Virginia, and died 1810 in Nottoway Co., Virginia.


Will of Josiah Womack written 18 Sep. 1800 pro. 4 Dec 1800. Nottoway Co., VA., WB 1: 412. Witnesses: John Hayns, Carter Hamlet and Obediah Nunnaly

Josiah Womack (c.1730-1800 ) first appears on record in the Chesterfield tithe list C.1753. He witnessed an Amelia Co. deed in 1762 (GET CITATION- -CAN'T FIND IT), and in May 1763, the Chesterfield County Court judged a slave Jerry belonging to Josiah Womack to be six years old (CO 2: 403 ). In 1772, Josiah is designated "of Chesterfield Co.," when he purchased land in Amelia County from Thomas Ball ( Amelia DB 11: 492 ). He is found in the Amelia Tax lists for 1782 ( Listed with 6 whites and four blacks ), and 1785 ( seven whites, 1 dwelling, and three other buildings ). He also appears on the 1787 list, apparently in Nottoway Parish, which became Nottoway County in 1789. On 31 Jan. 1786, however, Richard Harrison of Georgia sold in 200 acres on Juniper Creek in Lunenburg Co. to Josiah Womack, designated of Amelia Co. ( Amelia DB 14: 228 ).

Josiah Womack married Keziah Wilkinson, dau. of John Wilkinson, whose will of 18 Dec. 1773 in Amelia County names his daughter Keziah Womack ( WB 2: 345 ).

William Womack

William Womack  was born Abt. 1765 in Chesterfield Co., Virginia, and died Bef. Nov 1828 in Campbell Co., Virginia.  He married CATHERINE BLANKENSHIP 1808  in Campbell Co., Virginia, daughter of HENRY BLANKENSHIP and NANCY POTTER.  She was born Abt. 1792 in Campbell County, Virginia, and died 08 Jun 1856 in Lynchburg, Campbell Co., Virginia.

1818: William Womack sat on jury, (Campbell County, VA., court order, book 15, page 138); Petticrew Exer. (Vs.) Jones.
1820: (Census) William Womack, Campbell County, VA., lived next door to Henry Blankenship, (son of Hudson Blankenship who had established the trade route ca., 1756 from Richmond, to Lynchburg, to Charlotteville, to areas in and around a village that had sprung up, now Bristal, Tennessee.) Hudson was a "Tinner" (trader) and builder.

1828: It is assumed at this point William Womack has passed away. Campbell County Order Book 18, page 187 , (William's Sons) William Womack, James Womack, and William Reynolds bound out by overseers of the poor. (This was the custom---if one of the parents was deceased and the family not wealthy enough to pay for "education" ).
It shows the marriage of Catherine Womack, dau of William & Catherine Womack, in 1856 in Lynchburg, VA. It says she was born in 1811 in Nottoway Co, VA. The 
tax records I have show that William Womack, son of Josiah Womack & Keziah Wilkinson, was listed as tax payer in Nottoway from 1799-1807, often right next 
to his father or mother. I think it is a good bet this was you William.

For years I assumed our William was the son of Francis, son of Thomas Womack and Mary Farley based on others research and LDS records that can never be trusted. I always had my doubts for lack of records, however based on the DNA evidence from the Womack DNA project showing my DNA match more likely from Richards line and the above paragraph indicate Josiah Womack and Keziah Wilkenson as the likely parents of our William. (more research needed)

The following letters were written to William Womack son of William Womack and Catherine Blankenship. They have been typed just as the originals were written. The originals are in the possession of Nelda Womack, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Campbell County March 11, 1835

My Dear Son,

Through the goodness and kind providence we are yet spard but not well. I have bin sick ever since last fall, sometimes veary bad, but thank God I have got some better. I hope these lines will shortly be in your hands that now goes from me your poor afflicted mother and hope they may find you enjoying good health and that your mind and notions are turning toward Virginia again.

Oh, My William, What could posess you to leave all your friends and go so far away? Do my dear child come back and let me see you once more. I hope you have no family to take care of and if you have not you can do as well here as you need to --- and here you would be with your friends which ought to be more satisfaction to you than to be with no connections at all.

I have not seen your sister Catherine nor Joseph nor James since before Christmas.

I am living with Mr. Little. He is overseer for Mr. Richard Chilton at the tole gate trading in Lynchburg. You are well acquinted with the place. Mr. Little says he intends to try to come next fall if he can. He wants to know how the price of everything generally is. His wages this year is a hundred and fifty dollars, 5 barrels corn and five hundred weight of pork and a milk cow.

Let us know if you are much pleased with the Illinois State and what sort of a place it is and be sure to let us know in your letter whither you intend to come and see us or stay with us and when we may look for you. I hope you will start as soon as you get this for we want to see you much. None of your brothers nor your sister Catherine is not present but all want to see you and would join me in love to you.

I have been with your brother Joseph's family ever since the first of August and Joseph and James joines with me writeing to you. They have had bad coles but have got better of them. Your sisters and younger brothers was well when I heard from them last. They are all living in Lynchburg.

I hope dear William these few lines will find you injoying good health and now I will try to inform you your favoured letter came to hand perhaps about the middle of september which informed us you had been veary sick with the ague and fever. Mr. Little received your letter in town. As I understood he was veary unwell I suppose at that time and was taken veary shortly after that with the severe fever and died the 25th day of September and was brought from near Lynchburg Whare he lived to Goodmans Graveyard and was buried about ten days before he was. Same lay veary low for a long time but has recovered.

Dear Son, when death parts loving friends we must submit, but when loving children will take themselves far away in a distant land leaving all connections behind for no cause, it is grievious. William reflect on this-you are my flesh and my bone and I cannot come to you but you can come to me. If the Lord please, I hope I shall see you this Spring if life and health permit. James has bin veary anctious to wander as you have done, but now he finds himself a doing veary well. He is getting twelve dollars per month and has nearly got his trade and says you can get more here to work in plantation business than you get whare you are.

Joseph wishes you would come. He wants to move to some part of the World whare he can do better for his family, but I do not expect he will ever more many miles from whare he is. They have three children- William Henry, Mary Ann Rebecah, and Elizabeth Jane.

I hope son William you have no inclination to have a family yet and if so I do truly wish you to come immediately. You can get work aplenty. James would be so glad for you to come and work with him. He has been with Mr. Austin Lane--this is the fourth year. He gave him wages every year and has nearly got his trade and he would hire you at a word if you would come. You must come now. When you get this you must sit down and write a few lines that you will be here in a veary short time if the Lord permits and then collect on what you have owing to you and start immediately, and it would please me well. O William don't let me be disappointed in my hope of seeing you once more in this world. I expect to go to Lynchburg veary shortly to stay with the guerls and when you write to me direct your letter to Lynchburg Post Office. James wants you to write to him and direct his to Campbeel Courthouse. Be certain to answer this as soon as possible, dear son. I must conclude with our best love to you and all the best wishes that a mother can afford, so farewell sweet William my son for this time.

I remain your loving mother untill death.

Letter # 3

My Veary Dear and Loving Son,
I once more by the help of providence take the pen in hand to write you a few lines. We received your letter dated the 14th ov November. I do not mind exactly the time, but it found us in tolerable health except your brother Larkin. He was veary low at that time with the fever. He lived untill the thirteenth day after he was taken without eating anything except chicken water and some kind of tea. Nothing else was allowed him untill the thirteenth day and then one spoonful of veary thin mush and a half cup of milk.

You must expect my dear William that my dear Larkin was most gone and so he did seem to be but he was willin to die, as Mrs.____ told me, the lady whare he lives. His and your sister Catherine nursed him in his sickness, but I went severil times while he lay sick, which I think was about six weeks cinfinement to the house, but the Lord was pleased to raise him from the bed of affliction and I saw him last thirsday evening. He was in good health of body and of soul too apparently. He is a veary pious youth and if you hear him preaching the Gospel you need not be at all alarmed. He has commenced going to school and is free the 27th of next January and seems to take such delight in the ways and worship of God. And John is still going on in religious ways, And O my William do you not think that a grate comfort to me? And would it not be a greater one still to hear in your next letter you embraced religion? You say in your letter you nor your wife had not profest religion, and you have regular meetings with the Methodists, Baptists, and Presbiterians.

Well, my son, so you and your wife attend to preaching and do you wish to get religion? Then if you do get down on your knees and pray to God to have mercy on you and show you your sinful state that you are in by nature for ye must be born again or ye cannot see the Kingdom of God. Oh, my William. read the bible a great deal and attend to preaching and if there is any revival out with you write me word in your next letter and I pray you my dear son and daughter in law, be you both at the alter that the people of God may pray for your dear souls.

When you read this think on whom it is ritten these few lines once more. Tis your dear old mother, and I pray you remember what I say to you on this paper and let it sink deep in your minds. What doth it profit a man to gain the hole world and lose his own soul? oh, my son, try to save your precious ans never dying soul. Lay not up treasures on earth whare moth and rust doth corrupt and whare theves brake through and stele, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven whare neither moth nor rust doth corrupt and whare theves do not brake through nor steal, for whare your treasure is there will your heart be also. let us all try to meet in heaven.

Now I must inform you we are in common health at present as far as I know and hope this will find you and all yours in good health. I have not seen Joseph since before last Christmas. He has gone to Halifax to live. I saw James not long since. He was in common health.

Now Dear Son, do you not think of ever coming home to see us? We would be so glad to see you and your little family. John says he thinks you might come if you try rite. And now William, try and come and let us know in your next letter whither you intend to try and come. So farewell, my William, for this time. Your brothers nor sisters Catherine is not preasent to joine with me in love to you and family but you may except of it with mine.

I remain your loving affectionate mother untill death.

My dear William,
I now joine with your brother Larkin. He seems to wish you all the good he can for your soules salvation and so do I, and re-read his letter, my son, untill you can understand it and meditate on it also. Altho he is younger than you he is much improved in religion and expects to joine the next conference. He seems to be much respected for his piety and seems to delight in religious worship very much. O my William, I wish you and all my other children were as earnest in gaining your soul's salvation as my dear Larkin is.

Dear Son, I have written a letter to you some months back. I have not received any answer from it yet for which cause I expect you have not received it, as we understand in Leroy's letter received from you that you have moved three hundred miles from whare you was living. And why could you not have come nearer to us as well as to go no farther from us? I may say farewell, for my William I may never expect to see you any more in the land amongst the living.

Well, dear son, answer this as soon as possible and let us know whether you have embraced religion yet and whither you are trying for that blessing and your dear companion with you. O strive to get to heaven and teach your children to learn the way...

Dear children, excuse all amiss on this paper. James and Leroy is both married as we understand. None of us was at the marriages. James was married when in Pitsylvaney to a Miss Yancy.

I must conclude. Our love to you and family. I am your affectionate mother untill death.

Larkin Womack

Larkins Civil Ward Roster Card
1. LARKIN A. WOMACK was born January 27, 1822 in Campbell Co., VA, and died 1886 in Scott Co., AR. He married (1) MARY CATHERINE TAYLOR Abt. 1845, daughter of JORDAN TAYLOR. She was born 1826 in Buckingham Co., VA, and died Aft. December 06, 1868 in Coffee Co., TN. He married (2) RUTH MORRIS MEEKS 1878 in Coffee Co., TN. She was born March 24, 1836, and died January 12, 1911 in Scott Co., AR.

Larkin was a Methodist in Lynchburg, Virginia. During the Civil War he owned a hotel in Tennessee and turned it into a Confederate Hospital at that time. It is said to be still standing in Coffee County. He was very much a southern man, a definite confederate.

Larkin Womack, William D. Taylor and Charles H. Taylor, were all "Tinners" (Traders) just as Hudson Blankenship who established the route to and from Bristol and his son Henry Blankenship who lived next door to William and Catherine Womack 1820 in Campbell County, Virginia. Larkin (per tax records, paid taxes in Buckingham County, VA., thru 1856.) Larkin and Mary Taylor lived in Bristal Co., Tennessee. Real estate value $ 2400. His neighbor on one side was Rev., James C. King and wife whose daughter had married the banker Joseph R. Anderson. on the other side of Larkin was a hotel. Per deeds, after June 1860, Larkin purchased lots 46,64,and 66. which included the Exchange Hotel and this property included all between 4th Street and 6th Street (now Olive Street).

All of the pay vouchers for Larkin Womack Private, Co. K, 4th VA., Rgt., Case., Fitzhugh Lee Brigade, under Captain Heath and Lt. Terry have not been found--but those we have indicate that by August 1863, he was in this company, he had enlisted for "three years or end of War" and he had been paid through 1 June 1864 --so we assume he was still in this company April 1865 . This Regiment had been re-organized and 10th company had been added. May 23,1862 the day Fannie Otey Womack was born, it appears Kate was returning to Buckingham Co., VA., for the births of her children but due to the War , had evacuated to Richmond, Many of the Taylors were staying in homes on Franklin Street, Richmond, VA., (as was Mrs. Robert E. Lee during this period).

After the birth of their last child, Mary Taylor passed away as a result of birth complications. Years later Larkin married Ruth Morris Meeks (our lineage) and had George Farris Womack.

Buried, Pilot Prarie Cemetery, Scott County, AR.

SOURCE: F. Mae Doria, 1303 Nor Vandalia, Tulsa, OK., (deceased). Larkin was an apprentice to John Thurmond, Lynchburg, Va., a saddler. He was a preacher, Mason, a Democrat and served in the C.S.A. He was located in 1844 at Lynchburg, Va; in 1846 in NC.; in 1850 he was in Buckingham Co., Va., in 1860 in Sullivan Co., Tn.; 23 May 1863 in Richmond, Va.; Apr 1865 at Appomattox with Fitzburge Lee; in 1866 in Tn.; in 1880 in Coffee Co., Tn.; 1883 - 1899 in Waldron, Scott Co., Ar.

The following letter was written by Larkin, to his older brother William in Illinois.

Lynchburgh, Virginia February 28, 1843

Dear Brother,

I take this opportunity to inform you that we are in common health at present, what few thare is of us togather. And I hope these few lines may finde you all injoying good health.

Dear Brother, we received your letter directed to Leroy sometime since and I was very glad to heare from you and to find that you were on this side of eternity for I had not heard from you for so long. I did not know whither you were dead or alive. But it would have comforted me mutch more if I could have heard that you were on your way to heaven, as I know not whither we shall ever meet again in this world, but I hope that we shall in a betterone. And now I wish you to make a start for heaven and try to meeta brother who loves your soul.

I feel it my duty to warn you of your doom for without holyness noman can see the face of God in peace. My friend, do you know whare youare going? Have you reflected what you are engaged in? Is it an object you will be able to think upon tomorrow with pleasure? Wold you pursue it if you were sure you would die tonight? Have you asked God, or can you ask God to bless it? If you have not done this, if you cannot do this, then reflect. For all these things God will bring you into judgement. Ecclesiastes 11:9.

Stop and consider before it is too late. Thare is yet time but you know not how short it may bee. O flee to the Savior for the pardon of your sins - pray that devine grace may be given you. Entreat the Holy Spirit to convince you of the evil of sin and its dredful consequences and to influence your heart and mind to those things which alone can bring you peace at the last. Read the Bible. All these things are taught therein.

Resides, the heavenly world with all its glory and felicity would be a place of torment to an unholy mind. Shold the sinner with his unholy heart and character be admited into the regions of the blessed what would he find suited to his desires and reigning temper of heart? He would find the character of everything totally opposed to his own. He would find himself perfectly alone - no one to associate with him among all the millions of heavenly host.

As I expect ere long to be standing on the walls of Zion to proclame the glad tidings of Christ to a lost and ruined world and now I proclame to you and beseack you by heaven to repent and believe the gospel before it shall be everlastingly too late. I know not that I shall ever see you again in this world, but I hope ere long we shall shack hands on the banks of eternal deliverence....whatever you find amiss forgive.

Nothing more at present, but I remain your brother untill death. Larkin A. Womack
