Information from Patsy Seay:

The following is taken from a wonderful book titled THE HISTORY OF TEXAS, c 1896, Lewis Publishing Co., Chicago. A copy is in the Bosque County Museum and also in the Special Collections at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. I read and copied the article from Baylor and was able to take very good photos of Abner and his wife shown in that book. The article reads as follows, " Abner Carroll Womack, whose pleasant rural residence is adjacent to the town of Morgan, Bosque County, and who has maintained his residence on this farm for more than a quarter of a century, is classed foremost among the most intelligent and prominent farmers of the county; and it is threfore a matter of pleasure to present to our readers a review of his career.

Abner C. Womack was born in Simpson County, Mississippi, February 15, 1835, and is a representative of a family long resident of America, although his ancestors were originally from Scotland. Seven brothers of the name came from the land of hill and heather to this country about 1670, and from them descended a large posterity that setled in various parts of the Union and figured prominently in every was that has been waged on American soil, from the Revolution down to the great civil strife of 1861065. The father of our subject, A.P. Womack ws born inGeorgia in 1806, ws rered in Louisiana and at the age ot twenty ws united in marriage to Miss Stacy Short. In 1850 they emigrated to Texas, locating in Polk County, where Mrs. Womack died the following year. She left a family of thirteen children. (I am not naming the children here-PJS) In 1853 the father of this family was again married, his second union being with Mrs. Telitha Furguson, by whom he had six children. (I am not naming the children here-PJS) The father of this family died January 16, 1894, at the home of his son, Abner. For many years he was an honored member of the Methodist - Episcopal church and to the last cherished a loving faith in his Savior, dying in full hope of immortal life. Politically, he was a Republican fro the time of the organization of the party.

Abner C. Womack was reared in Mississippi, remaining there until 1850, when he came to Texas, and in 1859 became a member of Bosque County. during the second year of the war he was conscripted and sent to Austin in the regular army. Subsequently he was discharged and then entered the frontier service, where he was on duty most of the time until the close of the war. He now has one hundred and fifteen acres under cultivation and has kept pace with the development and progress that has been carried during these years.

Mr. Womack was married May 9, 1861 to Miss Susan Howard, a native of Lavaca county, Texas, born April 26, 1845. Her father was Phillip Howard, one of the most prominent men in the state in an early day, represented elsewhere in this volume. Mr. and Mrs. Womack have had ten children, seven of whom are living, namely; Mrs. Minta Ligon, Laura, Mrs. Sarah Belcher, Phillip S., Elbert D., William S., and Mark B. The three deceased are Adney, who died at the age of three years; Eugene, who died in infancy, and Mathew G., who died at the age of sixteen years.

Mr. Womack is a Republican. He cast his first vote for General Houston and again supported him in 1859. In 1861 he was one of the four men of his voting precinct who supported the Union ticket, and he has never since has cause to lose faith in the grand old party which then saved the country, so that he is still identified with its interests and supports its candidates. He is a Mason in good standing, having united with the fraternity in Meridian in 1873, and aftereward becoming a charter member of the Morgan lodge." End of article.

The information for this family and the following information in this message line is from a descendant Malvin R. Turner, 307 E. Adams, Itasca, Texas 76055. Phone: 254/687-2969.

After making several other moves, they bought a farm in Hill County in 1877, located 3 miles east of Itasca, known as Rockwall Community.
