Notes on William Womack and wife Charity LNU:
Incorrectly identified in some genealogies as "William Washington Womack" and "Charity Bufkin". In fact, the William Washington Womack (born 1851) who married Charity Bufkin (on 25 Nov 1877) was the son of Richard R Womack and Dicy Jane Hayes (see 1850 Census of Simpson Co, MS).

Notes on Nancy (Womack) Trafton and Thadeus Womack:
Nancy (Womack) Trafton and Thadeus Womack were both enumerated twice in 1850. See Fayette Co, TX for the other enumeration.
1860 Census - Thadeus Womack (preceding family is Malachi and Nancy (Womack) Trafton) - Year: 1860; Census Place: Division, Hill, Texas; Roll: M653_1297; Page: 94; Image: 193; David Womack is 4 pages earlier, on p.90 (see 1850 Simpson Co, MS, p.290A for David)
Some confusion over who was the bondsman of the marriage of Malachi Trafton/Grafton and Nancy Womack - some places say Jacob Womack, others say Benjamin Womack; need to see actual records. Updated 3 Aug 2007 - saw the book, bondsman was Benjamin. Given that Malachi and Nancy named their first son Benjamin Edward, Nancy's father was likely Benjamin.

  • Azariah Townsend who married Martha Womack - apparently Martha died without children; Azariah remarried to Sarah S Robertson on 10 Dec 1844 in Copiah; in the 1850 Census, Azariah (35, MS) and wife Sarah on p.278B, h.1053 of Copiah.

In previous HH is Elberry Britt who, according to Copiah marriage records, married Adeline Jackson on 22 Mar 1849; some sources say her name was Adeline Womack. Joel W Morse and family were also enumerated a secomd time in Copiah as "Moss", on p.231, h.324, in the HH before Malachi Trafton and wife Nancy Womack; Thadeus Womack living with them. See WGN post of 22 Feb 2002 from LaDawn Garland. Emily married next Andrew Jackson Barnes (22 Sep 1857 in Copiah); I cannot find them in 1860, but in 1870 and 1880 they were in Gonzales Co, TX.
