352 Early Virginia Womacks

William Womack, believed to be the patriarch of most Womacks in the United States today. I personally have never found any documentation or proof that he actually existed other than traditions past down from generation to generation for the past 180 years or so. Most records that have been used to show proof I believe refer to his son. All records that have named William as the father of these children have been from secondary sources and no primary sources have been found. If proof can be found it will probably be found in early miscellaneous records in which the names may be found that have not been listed in secondary sources. So any mention of William Womack in the records below have never been found in primary sources and even these secondary sources are in question. Whoever the patriarch was we have records of his children. Oscar Womack, said: "We should try to prove our lineage as in a court of law", however, I know there are times when that piece of paper is not there and all we have is family traditions. As Sam Womack, another Womack researcher, said: "I'm not calling my ggrandma a liar". Proof is important, if it is out there we should try to find it.

____________________________

Five Womack brothers, William, Abraham, Richard, John and Thomas are mentioned in the Virginia colonial records between 1674 and 1700. All of these except Thomas, were married and had children. (Source: "The Valentine papers," Vol 3 et seq., by Edward Pleasants Valentine.) While it is possible that all of them are immigrants, it seems more probable that their father came to Virginia and raised a family there. On this assumption, it would seem that the progenator of the Virginia Womacks arrived at the Old Dominion before 1645.
The few clues that we have, indicate that the immigrant may have come from the County of Norfolk, England. Katherine (Corbett) Womack, third wife of Bishop Laurence Womack, was a sister of Frances Corbett, who married Thomas Kemp in 1649. (Source: J.J. Muskerr: Suffolk Manorial Families, Vol. 2, p. 232. Bishop Womack named "Robert Kemp, my nephew" in a codicil dated Feb 20, 1685, to his will. Frances Kemp, in her will dated Feb 7, 1689, left L5 to "my sister Womack" and "Kath. Womack " was witness to her will.) Richard and Mathew Kemp, mentioned below, and probably their brother Edward, came to Virginia. They were second cousins of this Thomas Kemp. It has been suggested that the first Womack may have come over as an assistant to, or at the instigation of, one of the Kemps. While this is plausible, no definite proof has been found.
In 1635, Sir John Harvey, one of the most unpopular and overbearing of the colonial governors of Virginia, removed from office the able and well-liked secretary of state, William Claiborne, and appointed Richard Kemp in his place. Rev. Anthony Panton, whose opinion was probably not unbiased, called Kemp a "jackanapes" and told him that he was "unfit for the place of secretary", and that "his hair-lock was tied up with ribbon as old as St. Paul's".

Compiler of this genealogy: Roger Gail Womack

William WOMACK Sr.
Birth: ca 1610/1620, Norfolk, England Death: bef 1685, Henrico Co., VA, age: abt. 75. Believed to be the ancestor of most of the Womacks in America today. William Womack was born about 1610 to 1620 presumably in England, Possibly the County of Norfolk. There are still Womacks in that area. On a tour of England in 1970 a Womack store was noticed in Sleaford. 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. Later research credits his place of birth as Wragby, Lincoln shire, Eng. (no such record found). 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., (compiler has never found or seen these records? RGW) 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 descendants of William Womack remained essentially southern families. In the 1790 census there were at least 30 Womack families in Virginia. There were 11 in North Carolina and 2 in South Carolina. Later they went westward to Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri and later still to the northwest and farther west. They went south to Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and other states. The Womack name is spelled with many variations in the records: Womack, Wamack, Wammack, Wamoche, Wommack, Waamock, Wamocke, Woomack, Wamic, 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. Note: There is a Womack family in Massachusetts whose ancestry has not been connected with the William Womack family of Henrico Co., Va.

There was a Henry Womack and wife Pheobe Rondall of Massachusetts who had a son George b 9 Apr 1653 Accomac Co., Va. m Elvira Lansing b 1656 Middlesex Co., Ma. d/o George Lansing and Mary Afton. The children of George and Elvira (Lansing) Womack were all born Accomack Co., Va.: Daniel b 1678 m Sarah Listen; Jerry b 1680 m Emily Payson; Martha b 1681 m George Todd; Mary b 1682 m William Lerner; Henry b 1684 m Sarah Scranton, David b 1686 m Mary Thomas; Phoebe b 1687 m John Creighton; John b 1689 m Eleanor Huntley. The children of David and Mary (Thomas) Womack were: Nicholas b 1710 m Phoebe Nerbe; Tilley b 1712 m Jonathan Upsall and Eliza Ann b 1715 m James Pitkin. Reference: The Womack & Allied Families by Thomas pub. 1932, p.154 Early Settlers of Mass. by Stull pp. 19-33. Vital Rec. of Mass. by Stiles Vol 3 thru 9. Note: (compiler has never found any of these records to prove this Henry Womack line, RGW). Note: Archer Womack was listed as settler in Virginia in 1619 (no records to support this 1619 Archer, RGW). An Archer Womack of Greenup Co., Ky was born 1719 in Virginia. Ref: Womack Genealogy Vol. 1 p. 4 by Womack Family Assoc. William Womack Sr. is thought to be the "immigrant" ancestor of the WOMACK family with all its various spellings.

Notes:
William Womack married Mary Jane Allen, 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. The Oft-told tradition of their having come to America from Wales is discounted by all who have researched the name. It is thought the Welsh tradition might have evolved from a maternal line...perhaps Watkins (Gwatkins), but, here again, no proof has been established. It has been suggested that the name might be of Norman origin. This possibility was discussed in Sons of the Conqueror, by Leslie G. Pine: "Robert, son of Wimarc, a genuine Sussex pre-Conquest Norman, seems to have been strangely neglected by the Earnest seekers after Norman paternity. According to Round, Wimarc was a Breton name. I do not remember a pedigree made out from Robert, and I am certainly not suggesting one should be, but it is a remarkable fact that this Norman, one of the small band whom we know to have been settled in England in Edward the Confessor's reign, should have been left unclaimed. "Egbert Hudson Womack, a New York attorney, published several books on his lineage, including a respected work on the Womack family titled Cherry Grove. [This booklet (as it pertains to our English roots and the early family in Virginia) included in the volume as a separate chapter]. In a letter dated October 1, 1958, to Mr. Oscar Womack of Daylight, Tennessee, the following paragraph is extracted: "I note that one of your inquirers is interested in the origin of the name. I have done some research on the question and it is my view that it is derived from the Anglo-Saxon personal names 'Wigmearc,' 'Wihomarc,' and 'Wimarc,' (a Mercian Warrior). See Barber's British Family Names (London, 1903), p. 279. 'Wig' was one of the common Anglo-Saxon macian; (middle English maken). Wimarc or Wymac was a feminine personal name. Robert, the son of Wimarc, is mentioned several times in the Domesday Book (1086). She was a lady of noble birth and Robert was the equerry and a close associate of Edward the Confessor. He is pictured at the death bed of Edward in the Bayeux Tapestry. However, Robert's descendants apparently did not take Wimarc as the basis of their surname. "At the time of the Domesday Book, there was an undertenant named Wihomarc who is described as a follower of Count Alain. In the lists of wills probated in England between 1541 and 1670, we find the surnames Wymarch, Wymark and Wymake. These variations seem near enough to the current pronunciation and variations in spelling to support the derivation suggested above. It is hardly necessary to add that many explanations of the derivation or meaning of the name have been given and some authorities do not agree with my view. "In 1958, when the above letter was written, Egbert Hudson Womack was living at 20 Exchange Place in New York City. Indications that the Womack immigrant may have come from Norfolk, England are tenuous, but interesting. This matter is discussed in Cherry Grove by Egbert Hudson Womack: "Kathrine (Corbett) Womack, third wife of Bishop Laurence Womack, was sister of Frances Corbett, who married Thomas Kemp in 1649. Ref: J. J. Muskett, in Suffolk Memorial Families, Vol. 2, p. 232. Bishop Womack named 'Robert Kemp, my Nephew in a [1685] codicil to his will. Frances Kemp, in her will dated 7 February 1689, left 5 pounds to 'my dear sister Womack; 'and 'Kath. Womack' was a witness to her will. Richard and Matthew Kemp, and probably their brother, Edward, came to Virginia. They were second cousins of Thomas Kemp. It has been suggested that the first Womack may have come over as an assistant to, or at the instigation of, one of the Kemps. While this is plausible, no definite proof has been found." [Note: Old Virginia and Her Neighbors by John Fiske gives great detail about the Kemps.]


I may have found an origin for the "1665 Patent" business. In "Chesterfield - An Old Virginia County" by Francis Earle Lutz, 1954, there is a section about the Bermuda Hundred and Bristol Parish. (Chesterfield was created from Henrico in 1749.) It cites Patents by other settlers in 1635, 1642, and 1650. Then it says (p. 48): "Other settlers around this period included Francis Redford, in 1659, and John Puckett, John Burton and Abraham and William Womack, in 1665." No source or footnote.

Treatise on English Womacks and their Origins

By Jan Womack

I first heard the name WOMACK in 1976 when I met my husband, at Guy's Hospital London where he was a medical student, and then again shortly after when I heard the name of the black American singer, Bobby Womack. I was curious about this unusual name and none of my husband's family had any idea where it came from, except that it HAD to be truly Yorkshire in origin and it was a not an uncommon surname in West Yorkshire.

When we moved to Yorkshire in 1983, I began to research the name, wondering whether it could be Jewish or East European. I discovered a direct line very quickly, straight back to a wedding in 1619 at Wragby (near Nostell Priory) in West Yorkshire. Wragby is only 5 miles or so out of Wakefield. All my husband's ancestors after this came from Warmfield/Normanton, Wakefield, - where they still live today.

Having explained a bit about the background to my research, I will move on to other things more relevant. The crest of Laurence Womack is a cross-crosslet and the arms are argent with a lion rampant gules. Basically it is a shield divided centrally from top to bottom. The left half has a black background with a gold cross touching each edge. Inside the gold cross are 5 black\blue stars positioned in each bar of the cross and one right in the centre. The right hand side of the crest is white in background with a red lion standing sideways (facing the centre) up on its hind legs. I have a photo of this crest on the pillar in St. Margarets Westminster. I was granted special permission to photograph (it's not usually permitted) as I was a "Womack!" In 1986 we moved back to London and I joined the Society of Genealogists and gained access to some interesting info. One was hand written document from 1909 which I will attempt to decipher for you:

"From D.N.B 1909 Womock or Womack Laurence, 1612 - 1686. Born in Norfolk in 1612 was son of Laurence Womock rector of Lopham until his death in July 1642. His grandfather Arthur Womock had held the same benefice. Christ Church College Cambridge 4th July 1629 ?? 15th Dec. Scholar on Sir Nicholas Bacon's ??? following Oct. B.A. 1632 Deacon 1634 M.A. 1639 Prebendal stall of Preston in Hereford Cathedral 1660 and 8 Dec 1660 Archdeacon of Suffolk. He does not appear to have gone into residence at St. Davids. Died at his home in Westminster on 12 March 1685\6 and was buried in the North aisle of St. Margarets Church. He married first at Brideford on 18th November 1668 a woman called Anne Aylmer of Bury and secondly at St. Bartholomew - the - less, London, on 25.04.1669/70 a woman called Katharine Corbett of the city of Norwich, spinster age 40. She was still living in Oct 1697. He left an only daughter by his first wife named Ann who was buried in St. Margarets Westminster soon after her father. His heir was nephew Laurence Womack (d.1724) Rector of Caistor by Yarmouth. (signed) Donn. Miss Frances Hills - March 1950."

I don't think that this document is quite correct as according to another document I found (I believe referred to by another Womack genealogist in the message page) which was the "Womack of Mautby, Co., Norfolk" family tree communicated by Arthur Campling, Esq. In this family tree Laurence Womock has 3 wives, Ann ? buried at Horringer Suffolk 26 ? 1665, then Ann Aylmer and then Katharine Corbett (at St. Sepulchres, London).

I have found a reference to the Womack crest in a very old book at the society but unfortunately as we moved back to Yorkshire in 1990 I have never been able to trace the references within it. Here it is:

WOMACK of Mettingham, Horringer, Boxted. Laurence W., Archdeacon of Suffolk, Bishop of St. Davids. ref: Davy. Misc. Gen 5th. S VIII, 317-20 (Pedigree). Papworth 63-4. Kett* (Pedigree 5). If anyone can decipher these references I would be pleased to know. I suspect one of them will be the "Womack of Mautby" however.

The Norfolk link is an interesting one. There are no longer many Womacks in the area. The area known as East Anglia was one of the most populous areas prior to the agricultural revolution in England. The Womacks obviously made their mark in a prestigious area. There is an area in Norfolk called Womack Water, on the Norfolk Broads (Canals). Nowadays Norfolk is a sparsely populated area mainly holiday homes and Ministry of Defence training land. The churches mentioned in references to Laurence are almost deserted only opening for special occasions.

Now I will discuss the origin of the name. Again in a very old book at the Society of Genealogists I found a reference to ROBERTUS WIUHOMARCH under Womack in the index. This chap was a Norman knight who was granted land in Essex, England, by William the Conqueror in 1066 following the Battle of Hastings. The name is originally Breton (from Brittany) and means "Battle Famous" and also infers "Worthy to have a Horse." I was thrilled to find this and it was reinforced by a letter I received out of the blue some 4 years ago. This letter was from a scholar of St. Mary's College Spinkhill, this is a Jesuit centre in Lincolnshire\Derbyshire. He wrote:

"In the 1930's a Jesuit priest called father Ralph Baines did much research into the Spinkhill Mission i.e. The hidden centre of Catholic activity since the religious persecutions of 1600's. At the end of Father Baine's book, having dealt with all the priests and gentry, he makes the point that none of it would have flourished without the ordinary simple catholic people of the district. He then selects the family Womack and so I have photocopied it for you. - - Much has been written in these pages of recusancy, of penal laws, in a word - of persecution. It is refreshing to see the other side of the picture and record the sterling loyalty and patriotism of those whose names are recorded in the registers. We could not do better than to sketch the story of the family of Womac. They lived in Barlborough and Spinkhill certainly from the time of the reformation, the name is unusual. The name of Womac as pronounced by its owners - who were illiterate, takes curious forms, and finally ends up surprisingly aspirated as "Hummock". But what indeed was there in a name when sterling character was the mark of the breed? We can trace four heads of the Barlborough family - granssire, son, grandson, and great grandson - respectively Ignatius, Francis I, Francis II, Francis III b.1795. Ignatius was a man of gigantic stature, and a large mound marking his tomb used to be shown in "Squire Bowdon's Field." All the Womacs seem to have been of powerful build. It has even been suggested that the reason why spinkhill was never beaten up was that pursuivant or mobs coming from the South, would have to pass by Barlborough, which would mean negotiating the Womacs!

They were originally a Norman Family who had known better days. They had owned property in Nottingham and Durham. The latter branch suffered heavily for the faith, but clung loyally to it as did our Barlborough family."

English history around the 1600's was full of religious persecution which was why the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for America. I find it odd that one branch of the Womacks was so Catholic in spite of persecution and the other (Norfolk) branch was obviously happy to "go with the flow" and be Protestant hierarchy. Obviously prior to Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries all the Womack's would have been Catholic. Perhaps the main family Womack settled in Norfolk after Essex and then the Womack's not willing to renounce Catholicism after Henry's excommunication had to move Northwards to avoid persecution whilst those Womacks willing to bend to Henry's will stayed in Norfolk and were rewarded with office - just a thought. Incidentally the Womacks today are Methodists (as are most Yorkshire folk).

THE WOMACKS OF HENRICO CO. VA AND NORFOLK CO. ENGLAND. I thought it might be useful to review some of the clues which may link the Henrico Co. VA Womacks to the Norfolk Co. England Womacks. ONE. The possibility that the Albemarle references may indicate some connection between the Norfolk based Earls of Albemarle and the Womacks. See my message of October 14. TWO. The Flowerdew connection. See my messages of June 11 and 15. At least one Norfolk Womack married a Flowerdew from Fersfield, Norfolk, where Womacks were rectors. Temperance Flowerdew of the Norfolk family was married to George Yeardley Governor of Colonial Virginia in 1616, 1619 and 1626. The Flowerdew Hundred originally owned by their family is 12 miles from the Bermuda Hundred where the Womacks lived. THREE. The Kemp connection. Bishop Lawrence Womack was a brother-in-law of a Thomas Kemp of the Kemp family of Gissing Norfolk. (Gissing is another neighboring village of the Womack villages of the Lophams, Fersfield, Quidenham, etc.). The Bishop's nephew Robert Kemp was a second cousin to Richard Kemp, member of the Council from 1634, Secretary of State 1635-49, and Temporary Governor 1644, of Colonial Virginia. Other members of this Kemp family also were in early Colonial Virginia. FOUR. In a 1959 letter to Egbert Womack, author of "Cherry Grove", Dr. Jean Stephenson noted that Henry Womack (1566-1627) vicar of Great Ellingham, had as patrons one Thomas Cornwalys, later a member of the Maryland Council, from the nearby Suffolk village of Brome, and Anthony Wingfield - an Edward Maria Wingfield was the first President of the Council of Colonial Virgnia and there was a Wingfield family with lots of Anthonys in Letheringham also in nearby Suffolk. FIVE. Helen Ring Womack, in her book "The Womack Trail" points out that two surnames of the nine headrights on Richard Womack's 1673 land patent (Cooke and Browne) are surnames which married into the Norfolk Womack family. This is perhaps the most tantalizing clue of all. The Browne is Ann Browne of Talconeston, Norfolk (another nearby village to the Womacks) who married the son (Salathiel) of the same Henry Womack as above, an uncle to the Bishop. Ann had brothers Thomas and John both of Talconeston, each of whom had a son Thomas - Thomas Browne being the name on the Richard I land patent. (I found the Browne pedigree in "The Publications of the Harleian Society" vol. 91.) FINAL NOTE. In her 1959 letter to Egbert Womack, Dr. Stephenson said she had a "hunch" that the Rev. Henry Womack above might be the grandfather of The Immigrant. I found no evidence that she knew about the Browne connection. CONCLUSION? I think that there is too much smoke here for there not to be a fire. We need to search the Norfolk family, beyond what we know from published pedigrees (Womack of Mautby, Womack of Lopham, etc.) in the right time period. That means looking in all the possible parish registers for a start.

At present I have compiled over 75,000 Womack descendants/connections in my database, any additions or corrections will be greatly appreciated. What I am trying to accomplish is all Womack lines to present. Some day this will all be stored in some type of national archive so it will make it a little easier for our descendants to find their ancestors. The information contained in this genealogy represents hundreds of hours of research by myself as well as others. Although I have tried to be as accurate as possible errors do occur, not only in family tradition and information but in my typing as well. It is up to each individual researcher to find proof of their own lineage. Unfortunately in a database this large I cannot possibly prove everyones lineage so use this as it was intended, as a tool that will help you find your ancestors, and PLEASE let me know if you find something in error. Much has been proven some has been passed down as family tradition and has not been proven. The purpose of the copyright is only to keep some unscrupulous scoundrel from taking this work and putting their own copyright on it for purposes other than intended.

Her exact dates of birth and death are still in question as is her exact name. She is listed in various sources as: Eugenia A., Ettie E., Mrs. C.L., Eddie, and Etta. Each census year, she is also listed at a slightly different age than would be consistent with the census before. In fact, in 1860 there is a Angeretta (age 6) and a Eugenia (age 2) Jones in the same household. Each one having a birth year slightly different than her supposed birth year. By 1870, there is just an "Agurritta" Jones, age 13. By 1880, her name and age are slightly more consistent. Jones, Eugenia Angaretta (I351)

"Rebecca's grandfather was the Revolutionary veteran, John Nichols, who came to Wilkes from Maryland, "near the Federal City, called Washington now, but Georgetown formerly," before 1796."


From "The Heritage of Wilkes County, Volume II" pages 373 and 374

"NICHOLS FAMILY 574

The name Nichols first appeared on census records and land grants as Nicholds, Nichles, Nicholls, Nicholos, Nicholus and has evolved to the present day spelling Nichols.

According to family sources, the Nichols family probably originated in Germany, and it is unknown when the family came to the United States. John Nichols, Sr. was born ca 1749, died 1796. Census records show he was married in Maryland before 1772 to a woman known only as Elizabeth and had five children. This John Nichols probably served in the Revolutionary War in the Sixth Maryland regiment, according to the Hall of Records in Annapolis, Maryland.

John Nichols probably came to Wilkes County from Frederick County, Maryland. When he came to Wilkes, he purchased several tracts of land near Fish Dam Creek in 1800 and 1810. The 1810 census shows him in Wilkes with a wife and children, probably his second wife, Catherine (Waggoner).

From the second marriage he had five children..."

362 From "A Genealogy of Stephen Bumgarner 1811-1901":

Pages 6-9:
"Rev. JAMES LINVILLE BUMGARNER (7 Oct 1832 - 12 Apr 1921) the eldest child and first son of Stephen and Rebecca, was married 6 Mar 1854 to PHOEBE ANN HINCHER (25 Mar 1835 - 20 Dec 1914) daughter of William and Charlotte Carroll Hincher. William and Charlotte were married in Orange County before moving to Wilkes to live and rear their family.

Reverend Jim led a busy life. He was a better-than-average farmer, an itenerant preacher of the Methodist faith, and a second lieutenant in the Home Militia during the War Between the States. He also had several avocations with which he occupied his spare time.

Jim's work week began early Monday morning and continued until Sunday noon. Then he would come in, eat, bathe, dress, and set out on foot to one of his churches, perhaps Poplar Grove or Obids (the latter a fifteen-mile climb up and over the Blue Ridge). Reaching his appointed post, he would spend the night with one of his parishoners, attend to his pastoral duties on Sunday morning, and walk home on Sunday afternoon, to be ready for the farm again on Monday.

When farm work was slack in winter, Jim used a team of big oxen to haul lumber from Tom Broyhill's mill, in the Miller Creek area, to North Wilkesboro. One of the oxen, Buck, belonged to Jim, and the other belonged to his son-in-law, Tom Cole.

The choice crop, and one which gave Jim much pride, was the Red Spanish sweet potato. The preparation of the ground, and the harvesting and storing of this crop were major undertakings - too much for the family to do alone. This tribe of Bumgarners did not believe in owning slaves, but they did at times need extra help. So, for this project, Jim hired his favorite hands, Morrison and Delphia McGlamery. In addition to being good workers, they understood how carefully the potatoes had to be handled. They knew that the slightest bruise or break would cause the tubers to spoil, and they acted accordingly. So, spring and fall would usually find the McGlamerys working with Jim in his sweet potato patch. The rich harvest was tenderly stored in the cellar to provide the family with their favorite breakfast of sweet potatoes, ham, and red-eye gravy through the winter, and to share with neighbors and friends who came as guests or cash customers. Before planting time in the spring, the remaining potatoes were taken out of storage and sorted into two lots, one for eating and one for planting. Then, people would come from miles around to purchase seed from Jim's stock.

Jim's military service began in 1863, when he was commissioned by Governor Zebulon B. Vance as Second Lieutenant in the 68th Battalion of the North Carolina Militia for Home Defense. He served until after the end of the war.

This, 1863, was a red letter year for tragedy struck the home. An epidemic took the lives of two daughters, Mary and Emily, the second and third of the children. Sixteen years later a diphtheria epidemic took two more. Carrie, the sixth child, and Grant, the seventh died within five days of each other. The three surviving children grew to adulthood, married, and reared large families, giving Jim and Phoebe altogether thirty-four grandchildren. The deceased children were: 1-2 MARY BUMGARNER (1858/1863); 1-3 EMILY BUMGARNER (1860/1863); 1-6 CARRIE E. BUMGARNER (1 Jan 1870/8 Oct 1879); and 1-7 GRANT BUMGARNER (14 July 1872/3 Oct 1879).

One of Jim's avocations placed his services in demand whenever a male member of the community died. It was Jim who was called upon to bathe, dress, and "lay out" the body before burial. He would do his job while the homemade wooden coffin was being built. Once Jim was on his way to visit a neighbor, Tom Rash, who lived just over the hill, and who had been ill for some time. As he approached, he looked toward the barn and saw Tom leaning against the fence, gazing at his cattle, which he prized. Jim headed in that direction, but when he looked again, Tom had disappeared, so he went on to the house. At the door he was met by a tearful member of the household, who told him that they were about to send for him. Tom had just passed away. Perhaps it was a coincidence that he arrived at that precise moment, but coincidence would hardly explain why he saw Tom at the barn fence.

Jim's home, like his father's was a haven for the needy. Their grandson, Millard, became a member of the family in 1894, when he needed special care. He grew up with them as their son, and was their principle heir. In the home at one time were two sisters, Myra and Nan Whitworth, who gave and received help as did others. Many were those who partook of this home's generosity and benevolence. Jim and Phoebe hold a place of great respect and worth in the history of Wilkes County."

"JAMES LINVILLE BUMGARNER:
The Reverend James Linville Bumgarner was the eldest son of Stephen and Rebecca Nichols Bumgarner, born in Wilkes 7 Oct. 1832. He was a farmer and Methodist "circuit rider," or more accurately, circuit "walker." He worked hard on the farm all week, and at noon on Saturday he would come in, eat and dress, and set out on foot to one of the points on his circuit. Arriving there, he would spend the night with one of his parishoners, preach on Sunday morning, and walk back on Sunday afternoon to be ready for the farm on Monday.
During the war, in 1863, Jim was commissioned by Gov. Zeb Vance as 2nd Lt. in the 68th Battalion of the North Carolina Militia for Home Defense.
Jim married Phoebe Ann Hincher (1835-1914), daughter of William and Charlotte Carroll Hincher, who were married in Orange County, N.C. in 1827 before coming to Wilkes to live and rear their children, all of whom were born in Wilkes County.
Of the seven children born to Jim and Phoebe, only three reached maturity. In 1863 an epidemic took the lives of Mary and Emily, and in 1879 a similar tragedy took Carrie and Grant. The eldest, George Washington, married Mary Elizabeth Nichols, and they built a home and lived on land deeded to her by her father, John Wilburn Nichols. Maria married Tom Cole and they built and lived on land deeded to her by her father, downstream and cross Buck Branch from her childhood home. Linville married Bessie Ryan McNiel, and they first lived across the creek and on the hill south of his father's place, but later moved to Wilkesboro where they lived the remainder of their lives.
Jim's work did not end with farming, preaching, and serving in the Home Guard. In winter he used a team of big oxen to haul lumber from Tom Broyhill's mill in the Millers Creek area to North Wilkesboro. And a community service was to go to the home and bathe, dress, and "lay out" the body whenever a man died.
He was an expert producer of sweet potatoes, and he grew an abundant crop every year. There were sweet potatoes for the family, for neighbors and friends, and for seed the following year. People would come for miles around to buy seed potatoes in the spring.

364 From "Hayes, Johnson and Allied Families Genealogical Family History, Volume 1"

"This writer has researched a score or more of different Hayes lineage in the Carolinas, Virginia, Pennsylvania and other northern states in order to ascertain the true undisputable parents and ancestry of Henry Hayes Sr. and his wife Kizziah ____ (MNU). The preponderance of evidence is that he was the son of Joshua Hays Sr. and Selvah Harris of Granville County, NC, the grandson of William Hayes and wife Jane James of Chester County, PA and the great grandson of Henry Hayes and George James of East Marlborough, Chester County, PA, the immigrant progenitors formerly of Fulwell, Oxfordshire Parish, County Oxford, England.

Possibilities exist that Henry Sr. could have been the son of John or Henry of Lumenburg County, VA or the others originally from Chester or (Lancaster created from Chester) County, PA, thru Old Orange or Fredrick County, VA. (Patrick, Andrew, Charles, William, James, Hugh or others) however no ancestry has been established to any of these except a close relationship.

Henry Hayes Sr. could have been the Henry Hayes of Caswell County which at one time was a district of Granville County or Orange County, NC, however, there is evidence that this Henry Hayes was one and the same person as the one in Granville, or Wilkes or Craven (Chester) County, SC........

Henry Hayes Sr. entered land in Wilkes when the County was created in 1779/80 and the land office was opened. No deed was registered and he does not appear in the Tax List until the 1790 Census. He may have lived there off and on before 1790. All of the Henry Hayes except Henry Jr. and Henry of Granville and Burke respectfully disappear in the 1810 Census, if the Census index is correct. Henry Hayes Sr. died in Wilkes in 1805. Henry Horne was too young to be head of a family in 1810. He was born 1796 and married 1818."

"Jacob GREGORY, farmer, P. O. Prichard, was born in Union township, February 24, 1821, a son of George and Amy (Roberts) Gregory, the former born in Berks county, Pa., the latter in Connecticut. They were farmers and people of respectability. George was a son of Peter Gregory, who was also a native of Berks county, and at a very early day removed to this county. He located near Shickshinny, where he purchased 400 acres of land on which he built the first gristmill in the township. He was a thorough-going business man a good practical farmer, and held several township offices. His son George began his business life on the old homestead, and followed in the footsteps of his father. He owned 228 acres of land, and, like his honored parents, was a practical agriculturist and a far-seeing business man. In conjunction with his farm he owned and operated the mill his father had built. Politically he was a Federalist. He died at the age of fifty-six years, having reared a family of ten children, all of whom grew to maturity and five of them are now living, Jacob being the youngest son and the seventh child in order of birth. Our subject was educated in Union township at the common schools. He is a general and practical farmer and has always followed agriculture, beginning his active live on the old homestead, part of which he owned and on which he lived until 1872, when he removed to Hunlock township, onto a farm of eighty-seven acres. In 1841 Mr. Gregory married Miss Ellen, daughter of Joseph and Ann Moore, and to them were born six children, five of whom are yet living: Chester, Charlotte, Charles, Luella and Manemia. Mrs. Ellen Gregory was born in Union township, December 13, 1821. Mr. Gregory is a worthy citizen, and has been appointed to some township offices of trust which he has filled with credit to himself and satisfaction of his constituents."

369 From "History of Pittsylvania County" page 172:

"There is a tradition in the family that Edmund Fitzgerald was born upon the high seas, his parents being emigrants to America. He first appears in Pittsylvania records in 1778, when he purchased 100 acres on the north side of Banister River. In 1814 he and his wife Mellicent (Payne) made a deed of gift of 300 acres on Banister River, which he had purchased from Haynes Morgan, to their son Edmund Fitzgerald, Jr. Here Edmund, Jr. built his home, which is standing today in a fine state of preservation, owned by his grandson, Samuel Stone. The will of Edmund Fitzgerald, Sr. was proven January, 1848, in which he made sons Reuben, Samuel, Edmund Jr. James and William Fitzgerald; daughters, Nancy, wife of Hardin Wilson, and Elizabeth, the wife of James H. Stone. The latter settled the fine old place, "Oak Grove" with its boxwood gardens."

371 From "The Heritage of Wilkes County, Volume I,"

write-up by Pat Andrews Poteat on pages 262-263:
"William came from Ireland and settled in Rowan County with his three brothers before the Revolutionary War. He was a short, stocky Scotch-Irishman. He first married Letty Taylor, a cultured and educated lady. Due to the prevalence of fever in Rowan County, they moved to the Rocky Creek section in the Brushy Mountain township in Wilkes County. He fought in the Revolutionary War as a staff officer and was honorably discharged at the close of the war.

Sometime near the close of the 18th century, his wife died and was buried on a hill near the old homeplace. She left nine sons. It is said they soon became unruly and disobedient and shot holes in fine coverlets and shot the eyes out of pictures on the walls. William, therefore, employed a Miss Sarah Mullis as a housekeeper. She was industrious and saving and had plenty of grit. William married her. This did not suit his sons, and as fast as they grew up, they left home and went to Kentucky. The youngest, William, Jr. came back to Wilkes County where he lived and died.

William, Sr. was a quiet, unassuming man, well educated for his day. He was a loyal Baptist and generally a fine citizen. His marriage to Sarah Mullis seemed to be a happy one. Sarah was tall, dark and very robust, both physically and mentally. She was a devout church member and always attended regularly. She lived to be a very old lady. William died at the age of ninety-two."

372 From "The Heritage of Wilkes Vol. I," family #698 by Flora B. Friend:

"Henry Holdaway was born 15 September, 1753 in Virginia. He enlisted on 17 Aug., 1776, in Culpeper County, Va., in the Regiment of Riflemen under the command of Captain Gabriel Long. He also served under Col. Daniel Margaro. He was in the Battles of Trenton and Princeton, in two battles on the Hudson, and in the Battle of Monmouth, together with thirteen skirmishes. He received an honorable discharge after three years service at Rumpton Plains, New Jersey.

On 25 Jan., 1779, before his discharge, Henry was married to Eleanor Andisson Crystal, daughter of William and Mary Bruce Crystal. The Crystal (Crysel) and Holdaway families migrated to Wilkes County, N.C., probably about the same time.

A daughter of Henry and Eleanor, Elizabeth, became the wife of William Nichols. William and Elizabeth had a daughter Rebecca, who married Stephen Bumgarner.
