William WOMACK, the progenitor of this family in America, appeared in
Henrico County, Virginia, between 1650 and 1670. The first documentation
offered is that of the "appraisment of ye estate of Mr. Richard WOMECKE . .
. Augt. 19, 1684". Mary WOMECKE, widow of Richard, was granted
administration on his estate and she reported to court in October 1684.
Timothy AT.TEN was appointed guardian to Timothy WOMACK. Other children are
believed to be William, Thomas, Abraham, John, and Mary WOMACK.



The lineage of son William is followed through his son William WOMACK, Jr.,
who was living in Halifax County, North Carolina, by 1761 when he sold land
to his son Thomas WQMACK of Southampton County, Virginia. William WOMACK
made his will in February 1776 in Halifax County, North Carolina, naming
children Thomas, John, Frederick, James, Brittian, Mary BUTLER, and Martha
ALSOBROOK. John WOMACK, son of William, moved to Orange County, North
Carolina (now Chat- ham), by 1772, when his name is found on the muster roll
of Capt. Charles MATTHEWS. This family is followed through the generations
to the present with good documentation, photographs, and charts. The lack of
an index is the only unfortunate thing about this book.

had raised her in a genteel and fashionable manner; her husband, on the

been abandoned for many years. Her husband has left the state, and she
neither sees him nor hears from him for six, eight, or ten months at the

husband's creditors seize her livestock for his debts. The representatives
