Womble Family Genealogy Forum
I descend from William's son William, Jr. who died about 1852 in the New Hill area. Rebecca, who I believe was William Jr.'s oldest daughter and perhaps his oldest child, was my gr-gr-gr-grandmother. Rebecca was born about 1803 and died in 1869 in Harnett County. As you probably know, she married Ezra Holleman in 1823. I visited the Collins Grove Cemetery a couple of times about 15 to 20 years ago with a couple of my great-aunts (from the Mann-Holt side of my family). I did not realize the William Womble, Sr. family cemetery was moved there—I didn't even know it existed. Are there any legible stones from that family in the Collins Grove Cemetery, or were there any before the move? Who of the William Womble Jr. family is buried there?—any of Rebecca's sisters and brothers? Was Merritt Womble the son of John Womble who was William Jr's brother? How are William Sr's birth and death years known? I have many more questions about this group and hope you will not mind taking a look at them. Perhaps you and I can exchange information if you like. I descend from several families from that area (Holt, Holleman, Mann, Johnston, Upchurch, Peddy, Abernathy, Goodwin, Dewar, Harrington and Sloan) and would be glad to share any information on these families, as well as what I know about Rebecca Womble Holleman's family.
