More on William Warmack of Davidson Co, TN

More on William Warmack of Davidson Co, TN

Concerning Jabez Winchester - he was on the 1840 Census of Henry Co, TN, after which I cannot find him.

Concerning the name "William Seignor Warmack" and his exact birth and death dates:

I do not know the documented sources of this info; perhaps someone has this documentation. In his will, William Warmack named children:

Mathew Warmack
Thomas Warmack
William Warmack
Richard Warmack
Edward Warmack
Jesse Warmack
Hiram Warmack
Robert Warmack

I have seen Richard listed as "Richard Robert Warmack" which seems odd given that William Warmack had a son named Robert. I do not know the source of the middle names of William's sons.

I was asked about the William Warmack on an 1809 petition from Sumner Co, TN ( I had seen that list before. Due to the fact that there were also men named Stubblefield on the list, and that they were closely related to Elizabeth Stubblefield, wife of Abraham Womack of Caswell Co, NC, I think the William Warmack in this list was actually William Womack, son of Abraham. I talked about this a few months ago here: The William Warmack married to Millicent Martin was in Warren Co, KY in 1809.

William Warmack married to Millicent Martin did have some dealings in Sumner Co, TN later:
Marriages of Sumner County,Tennessee, 1787-1838
Stephen C Bowers to Nancy Lasiter, 8 Jun 1830, Wm Womack bondsman

Concerning some confusion over the men named Thomas Womack/Warmack.

A Thomas Womack married Lavina Dennis in Guilford Co, NC in 1799. Based upon the time and place, it is likely this Thomas was the brother of William Warmack who married Millicent Martin. It has been said this Thomas who married Lavina Dennis moved to Davidson Co, TN where he died. This is undocumented and untrue as far as I can tell. Instead, this Thomas moved to Putnam Co, GA, where he was in gthe 1815 tax list, and the 1820 and 1830 censuses. In 1840 and 1850 he was in Jasper Co, GA, adjacent to Putnam. In 1850, Thomas was listed in Jasper Co, GA with wife wife Lavina. By 1860, he was dead, but Lavina was listed as "Vina" in 1860 and as "Lavinia", age 88, in 1870. See The Calloway and Dennis families also came to this part of Georgia. Lavina Dennis was named in the will of her father, William Dennis, signed in 1791 in Guilford Co, NC.

There were 3 Thomas Warmack marriages in Tennessee before 1870:
Thomas Warmack to Harriet Byrn, 7 Oct 1828, Davidson Co, TN
Thomas Warmack to Nancy Shivers, 27 Jan 1859, Davidson Co, TN
Thomas J Warmack to Elizabeth Baker, 18 Sep 1867, Benton Co, TN

The first was the son of William Warmack and Millicent Martin, and the other two were grandsons, sons of William Warmack Jr and Matthew Warmack respectively.

I have read that Nancy Shivers was actually Nancy Shriver, dau of Abraham Shriver and Drusilla Piles. This is incorrect. Her name was Nancy Shivers (quite clear on the original marriage record), and she was the dau of Jonas Shivers - they were in the 1850 Census of Davidson Co, TN - has Jonas as "Jones Shivers". In 1860, Thomas Warmack (son of Matthew), was listed in the 1860 Census of Davidson Co, TN as "Thomas Warmac" with wife Nancy; they were in the household of Jonas Shivers, who is indexed by ancestry as "Jonas Iswoirs".
