Am looking for any information on a Womack or Moore family that was in Wise County, VA in the latter half of the 1800s.
Mary Elizabeth Moore (b. 21 June 1844 Surry County, NC) married
Tignal Archer Womack (b. 11 Aug 1840, Carter County, KY) in
Lee County, Virginia 28 Feb 1864). Their daughter Jestin was born Nov 1865. Archie had joined the Confederate Army...and proceeded to desert to the Federal Troops and then deserted Mary (set up a new family for himself in Lousiana...).
Mary had 2 more daughters, Elizabeth (b. 1869) and Margaret (b. 1874) She apparently gave them the surname "Womack" as well though I doubt that she was involved with another man named Womack.
Jessie, Elixabeth, and Margaret's births are not registered in Lee County. Some family records show their births as being in Wise County. Jessie moved to Carter County, KY and married John Counts. After he died she married Joe Baker. Margaret married Melvin Jones and ended up in Florence, Boone County, KY.
Elizabeth stayed in Wise County and ended up in Big Stone Gap married to a Charles Wilson. He was with the railroad and they moved out of the area in the late 1800s and went to Alabama.
I'm really interested in finding info about Mary and her daughters AFTER Archie joined the army and deserted them. I'm thinking keys are in Wise County.
Any help would be MOST appreciated. Thanks!
