In Reply to: John G [George?]. Womble by Steve Stevens of 1388

I have a few tidbits to add...found online and within the books I own on Isle of Wight.

John G. Womble b. 1820 Surry Co VA d. 1891 Smithfield, Isle of Wight Co VA. Buried at Ivy Hill Cemetery in Smithfield VA.
Married first Mary Anna Jordan Nov 9 1859 in Isle of Wight Co VA.
Married second, (her widowed sister) Pauline J. Gordon June 25, 1889 Norfolk VA. (He was 69 when he married her.)
John's parents were Cordy Womble / Wombwell and Lucy Wall. They married Jan 6, 1812 in Surry Co VA. Lucy Wall's mother was Charity Wall.
As for the title "Colonel"....my theory is that it was an honorary title. John IS listed in the Confederate States Citizens files online. This usually means that one would file for monitary reimbursement from the government for the loss or use of ones personal goods, ie: food, horses, cattle, by the soldiers during the Civil War.

It appears that John owned several different homes in Smithfield. He was noted as a "well-to-do merchant".

Cordy Womble's father was John Womble.
