Hi Everybody: I am looking for any descendants of the marriage between
Benjamin Wommack and Mary Lanier. Mary Lanier was the daughter of Benjamin
Lanier and his wife Susannah Green and was born Dec. 25, 1759 in Duplin Co.,
NC. She was first married to Mikal Dickson and has two children, Hannah and
John Lanier Dickson. Then she married Benjamin Wommack and had 4 daughters
and one son, Sally, Lucy, Betsy, Hannah, and Benjamin.
I am looking for any descendants who may be able to help me connect these
Wommacks to a Womack family that was in Gadsden Co., FL in the early 1800's.
They were David Womack, who had a daughter, Nancy, born in 1808 in Gadsden
Co., FL. Nancy married Nathan Shelfer in 1829 in Gadsden Co., FL. She and
a lot of Shelfer's are buried in Shelfer Cemetery, near Havana, FL in
Can anyone help me to connect these two families? Maybe there is no
connection but I believe there are.
