James A Womac - Goodspeed

From History of Tennessee, Containing Historical and Biographical Sketches of Thirty East Tennessee Counties, The Goodspeed Publishing Co, 1887.

McMinn County, p.1031-1032

James A. Womac, a well-known resident of the Ninth District, was born in Rutherford County, N.C., July 14, 1822. He is the eldest of six children born to Alexander and Mary (Neal) Womac. The father was of Irish descent, thought to have been born in Cocke County, Tenn., about 1802. He went to North Carolina at an early date and there remained until 1839, when he moved to the Ocoee Purchase in Bradley County. During the war he came to McMinn County, where he died in 1877. He was a successful farmer. The mother was of Welsh origin, born in North Carolina about 1802, and died in her native state in 1832. Our subject remained with his father until he attained his majority. He then began as a tiller of the soil. He purchased a small farm, to which he has since added, and it now contains 1,000 acres. He came to McMinn County shortly after the war, and remained until 1878, when he went to Meigs County. Three years later he returned to his present location. While a resident of Polk County he was six years a justice of the peace. During the late civil war he was pressed into the Confederate service, declining the rank of captain which was offered him. He served as first lieutenant. He was in no battle. At the age of nineteen he joined the Baptist Church, and at twenty-four was ordained a minister. He is a Master Mason, and belongs to Sons of Temperance. In August 1844, he married Margaret, daughter of James and Masila Thompson; the latter born in North Carolina in 1829, and was committed to the grave on her thirtieth birthday. She was a member of the Baptist Church, and mother of five children, of whom are living Mary M., Riley B., Woddy [sic] A. and Evaline -- Buckner died in infancy. In 1859, our subject married Rebecca, daughter of Thomas and Rebecca Higdon, who was born in McMinn County, about 1841, and died in Meigs County in 1880. She was also a member of the Baptist Church. Eleven children were the fruits of this union, ten of whom are living: Daniel S., Lillian, Esther S., Thomas M., Ransom J., Margaret, William James, Robert S., Schuyler and George W. In August, 1880, Mr. Womac married Catherine, widow of W. F. Whiteside, and daughter of James H. and Carolina Hamilton. Mrs. Womac was born in McMinn County in 1845. She is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. James H. Hamilton was born in McMinn County, October 27, 1811. He was a local minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and was a Master Mason. He was a tanner by trade. He married October 20, 1837, and died November 2, 1871, leaving a wife and eight children. His wife was born June 9, 1819, and died October 10, 1880. She was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

Josiah Womack Bible

Josiah Womack Bible Record

From “Womack Family Courier”, October 1984, p.112-116


REB – my notes are in [].

I have tried to copy this as best I can.

I disagree with some of the conclusions presented here. Primarily, I disagree that the William Womack who married Lucy Womack, daughter of Thomas Womack & Louvisa Rice, was the son of Abraham Womack & Elizabeth Stubblefield.

William Womack, son of Abraham Womack & Elizabeth Stubblefield, married Rebecca (last name unknown, NOT Rebecca Parker), and moved from Caswell Co, NC to Georgia; then to Pendleton Dist, SC; then to Tennessee; then to Caldwell Co, KY; and finally to Gallatin Co, IL, where he died in Jan 1820. I have the documentary evidence for this.

The William Womack who married Rebecca Parker, daughter of Edward Parker, lived in Halifax Co, VA. Edward Parker named several children in his will, including Rebecca Womack, Miles Parker, and Henry Parker. William Womack of Halifax Co, VA had a wife named Rebecca and sons Edward, Miles, and Henry Womack. Furthermore, Edward Parker had lived in Halifax Co, VA in close proximity to the William Womack there, before moving to Rowan Co, NC.

The William Womack who married Womack, daughter of Thomas Womack & Louvisa Rice, was, I believe, the son of Isham Womack. This Isham Womack was the son of Thomas Womack & Mary Farley, and thus Isham was the uncle of Thomas Womack (son of Abraham, son of Thomas) who married Louvisa Rice. This Isham was known to have children William and Martha. William Womack and wife Lucy Womack had a son named Isham Rice Womack. Also, their son, Levi Berry Womack, married Martha Bean, daughter of Robert Bean & Martha Womack; and Levi Berry Womack & Martha were said to be first cousins [need documentation for this].

There were over 40 William Womacks in America around 1800, and I believe they have been thoroughly confused.


From the editor:

The following information and bible records were sent by Mrs. Charles T. Womack (Pauline) of Greenwood, Miss. I am including a part of her June 26, 1984 letter to me to explain the following information which includes several bible records. –Annette (She and her husband are from 3 Womack Lines)


Dear Annette,

I am enclosing two Womack family Bibles. The first is listed as Josiah Womack but has his parents, Abraham & Eliz., sisters and brothers. The Asa Martin Womack Family Bible came with “our” Womack family to Yalobusha Co. Miss. There is a generation between these two bibles – William & Lucy Womack. We were able to find out about them through other sources.

In our possession we have the James E. Womack Family Bible (James E. Womack & Frances Sarah Wood marr. Yalobusha Co, Miss Oct 1884). In this bible is given the births marriages of each above parents, then the family of James Edward is given, their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren – which makes 6 generations.

From John Alexander Womack (1834-1927) on down we have the death certificates, the bible, marriage records in Yalobusha Co. MS, tombstones in Shiloh Cem. and certain family knowledge because grandchildren of this man told us so much. The generation before that Asa Matin Womack (1806-1863) – we were able to trace with deeds and other legal documents and the generation before that with deeds, bible and other material…

One other thing – the sheet giving the marriage of Abraham Womack and Elizabeth was found in Yalobusha Co. MS. A grandson of Abraham (1726-1800) was William Peebles Womack. He marr. Matilda Oliver in Caswell Co. NC. They came to De Soto Co. MS sometime in the 1840s. Their daughter, Willie Etta Womack b. 1854 in Miss marr. Lee Jackson and moved to Yalobusha Co and this page was given to show the M. of Abraham and Eliz. to be put together with the Bible record still in NC …

The above Bible was destroyed when the tornado of 1942 destroyed the home of Charles W. Womack, son of John A. Womack who built the home. Elizabeth (Betty) Brown Goza had copied this Bible. Her daughter, Mrs. Hubert McAlexander of Holly Springs, Miss had this and sent to PHW in 1962. Betty Brown Goza was a granddaughter of John Alexander Womack (1834-1927) and stayed in the John A. Womack home much of the time as her mother, Mary Alice Womack Brown died young. Shiloh Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery has Mary A. Brown wife of S. P. Brown and daughter of J. A. and Fannie A. Womack, Jan 8 1859-April 29, 1881. The Asa Womack Family Bible had survived a fire of the John A. Womack home in 1900. A picture of this home was given to Charles T.

Edmund Womack & Mourning Crute

Edmund Womack married Mourning Crute, as proved by the will of Hannah Crute:

Columbia Co, GA - HANNAH CRUTE, 11 Feb 1805:13 Jan 1806, p.62-65
Ch: Caty D Jennings, Rebekah Foster, Mourning Womack. Exrs: Friends, Edmond Womack (son-in-law) and Thomas Barron of Lincoln Co. Wits: Thomas Hogan, Mary Hogan.

A reading of the actual will shows that it mentions Hannah Crute's land in Virginia. Edmund (often spelled Edmond) was a very rare name among Womacks. The only Edmund Womack at that time was the one married to Mourning Crute. He appeared in tax records of Nottoway Co, VA in the late 1790s, last appearing in 1799. In 1801, he was in the tax list of Lincoln Co, GA, which is adjacent to Columbia Co, GA where Hannah Crute made her will.

Edmund Womack was most likely the son of Alexander Womack, Jr. In 1799, Edmund Womack and Mourning his wife sold 140 acres in Lunenburg Co, VA to Jacob Womack, which was adjacent to land of Alexander Womack. Womack researcher Sam Womack and others have proved that this Jacob Womack was the son of Alexander Womack, Jr. DNA tests have confirmed this. Since Edmund sold land to Jacob, and they were about the same age, we think they were brothers.


Mourning Crute, wife of Edmund Womack, was the daughter of Richard Crute Jr and Hannah Lamkin (according to Crute family research). Richard Crute Jr died in 1794 and his widow Hannah moved to GA a couple years later. Edmund Womack and family came to GA between 1799 and 1801.


Edmund Womack can be found in tax and land records of Lincoln, Columbia, Jasper, Newton, Jackson, Putnam, and Washington Counties in Georgia. He appears to have been somewhat of a land speculator, as many were back then as GA opened up to settlers. He was a farmer and a miller. He won land in the GA Land lotteries in 1820 and 1832. He was also involved in several law suits that were mentioned in GA newspapers of the time.

In 1826, Edmund Womack and his son John Edmund Womack killed a man named William Robertson. This proclamation appeared in GA newspapers on 11 July 1826:

Georgia -- By his excellency GEORGE M TROUP, Governor ... A Proclamation. Whereas I have received official information that on the 24th day of June last, and aggravated murder was committed on the body of WILLIAM ROBERTSON, in the county of Jasper, by EDMUND WAMACK and JOHN WAMACK, of Newton County in this State, and that the said JOHN WAMACK made his escape. Now therefore, I have thought proper to issue this my Proclamation, offering a reward of $250.00 ... Given under my hand ... at the State House in Milledgeville, this 6th day of July 1826 ... (Signed) GEORGE M TROUP. By the Governor. (Signed) DANIEL NEWNAN, Secretary of State. Note. -- JOHN WAMACK is about 19 years od age, 5 feet 7 or 8 inches high, dark complexion, sandy hair, blue eyes, and stout made; he rode off a large blood bay horse.

"The Georgia Black Book" by Robert Scott Davis, Jr, lists the convicts at the GA State Penitentiary at Milledgeville up to 1850:

#313 EDMOND WOMACK; Voluntary manslaughter; sentenved to 4 years, running from 21 Aug 1826 to 21 Aug 1830, convicted in Jasper county, Farmer, born in Virginia, 55 yrs, 5 ft 9.5 in, fair skin, grey hair, blue eyes. Pardoned 16 Dec 1826.

#314 JOHN E WOMACK; Voluntary manslaughter; sentenved to 5 years, running from 21 Aug 1826 to 21 Aug 1831, convicted in Jasper county, Farmer, born in Georgia, 19 yrs, 5 ft 4.5 in, fair skin, sandy hair, hazel eyes. Pardoned 2 Nov 1829.

I live not too far from the GA State Archives, so I tried to find the court preceedings. I cannot find my notes, but they were in Jasper County, Georgia Superior Court, for either July or Aug 1826. Edmund Womack had been suing William Roberson for a debt. They were in court in Jasper Co, GA about the debt. Robertson had paid back some of the debt, but Edmund and his son John E thought that the money they had been paid with was counterfeit, and they were very angry about that. John E confonted Robertson in front of the Jasper County court house (and several witnesses) and struck Robertson in the head with a wooden walking stick, killing him. Originally, Edmund and John E pleaded not guilty to murder, but after a few witnesses testified, they changed their plea to guilty of manslaughter, for which they got much lighter sentences.

I cannot find Edmund Womack in the 1820 Census of GA, the first available for GA. In 1830, he was in Putnam Co, GA. In 1840, he was probably the Edmond Womack in Bibb Co, GA. After that, I do not know what became of Edmund Womack or his wife Mourning. I know they were both a live in the 1820s because of newspaper notofications of letters at post offices for both Edmund and Mourning.

Marriage Date:

Marriage State:

In 1840, John E Womack was in Coosa Co, AL. In 1850, he was in Independence Co, AR.

According to "Goodspeeds History of Independence County", J E Wamac helped build the court house for Independence Co, AR.

Edmund Womack and Mourning Crute probably had other kids besides John Edmund:

Hope H. Wommack
Martha McCray
Marriage Date:
18 Oct 1830
Marriage County:
Marriage State:

Since John Edmund Womack named a son Hope, it is possible this Hope H Wommack was his brother. However, I know nothing more about this Hope.

Update 2 Jan 2009 - Hope H Wommack was actually Hope H Hammack or Hammock. The Womack/Wommack name is often confused with Hammack/Hammock in old handwritten records. Hope H Hammack can be found in censuses of Talbot Co, GA, and it was he who married Martha McCrary. See WorldConnect for Hope H Hammock.

There was also a Josiah Womack in Putnam Co, GA, and his Army enlistement record indicates he was born in 1793 in Charlotte Co, VA, and that he was a miller. I cannot find Edmund Womack in the tax records of Charlotte Co, VA, but his father Alexander and brothers Jacob and William were there in the 1790s, so possibly Edmund was there long enough for Josiah to be born.
