Court Minutes 1786-1787 – p.46 – Betsey Yancey, Abraham Womack paid as witnesses in case of Wm Neal vs Jno Mitchell.

{The Abraham Womack on Hogan’s Creek was the one married to Elizabeth Stubblefield; this Abraham was present in the Caswell tax lists for 1777, 1780, and 1784. The Abraham Womack on Storey’s Creek in 1784 Caswell tax list was the one married to Martha Mitchell (they married 31 Mar 1763 in Granville Co, NC). He had been in GA in the mid-1770s, then moved back to NC for a few years before returning to GA. He probably married his second wife, Martha Watkins, at this time; she was from Halifax Co, VA, just to the north of present-day Person Co, NC. Abraham’s daughter, Cicely Womack married James Harris McFarland in Caswell Co, NC on 22 Jan 1787. Abraham Womack appeared as a witness in a case against John Mitchell (probably related to his first wife) in Granville Co, NC, which is just east of present-day Person Co, NC. Hiram Howard, who witnessed the deed where Abraham sold his land on Storey’s Creek, was Abraham’s son-in-law, married to his daughter, Lucretia. Although Abraham did not mention Hiram Howard or Lucretia in his will (though he did mention granddaughter Betsey Howard), he deeded a slave to daughter Lucretia Howard in Hancock Co, GA shortly before his death; and Hiram Howard was a witnesses to two deeds of Abraham Womack in Wilkes Co, GA (to son Mansil Womack and son-in-law James Harris McFarland). Hiram Howard left a will in 1821 in Oglethorpe Co, NC naming wife Lucretia. See .}
