Doesn't look like anyone has responded, maybe it's because you didn't give any dates, or even approximate dates, in your post. I thought the name seemed less common, so went looking. Found him as Judson C. on 1900 census.

TX Dth Idx 1890-1976:

Judson Carey Womble, b 5 Jan 1853, AL; d 23 Jun 1921 Caldwell, Burleson, TX; married; father, William H. born either No or So Carolina; mother, Eliza I. Shaffer, born either No or So Carolina.

As unusual as the name seemed, there was another one:

Judson Carey Womble, b estimate 1919; d 2 Apr 1976, El Paso, El Paso, TX; father, Hubert Womble; mother Susan Elizabeth Heslip; married; informant Melva M. Womble.

Turns out Hubert is son of Judson and this second Judson is grandson of older Judson.

1920 census Burleson Co, TX:

" Henry H., s, b Feb 1892, 8, b TX
Thaine, Elizabeth, servant, b Jul 1861, 30 Div, b Germ, Switz, Switz - Cook

There is a William Womble on the 1900 and 1910 census, also. Just slightly older then Judson and probably a brother.

Check out Burleson Co, TX GenWeb site. Some interesting tid bits about the Womble family. Mrs. E. J. Womble died 1890.

Looks like W.T./William fought in the Civil War and was a photographer. You might check, see if any of his old photos are around. Surely he would have taken photos of his family members.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
