Bio Photo Hi, I am Billy .......
(Last updated 16 Dec 2012)

Due to my Dad's death, I have taken over my dad's work on the Womble Family Tree. The Family tree goes back to the 1600's when the Wombles(Wombwell) came over from England to Virginia.((( Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Thomas Wombwell who settled in Virginia in 1648 ))) Sometime in the early 1700's the Wombles move to Edgecombe County, NC.

Edgecombe became a County 1741
Nash become a County 1771
Wilson become a County 1855

These are the 3 main Counties for the Womble
(The early years) ....
John Womble b.1756/d.1821

OFF of John William Womble b.1837/d.1904:
There are very few "Womble" (name Womble) left in Edgecombe County from the blood line. There is a lot of, next to kin, still there farming the home stead.

The Family Tree is not just of the Womble but it goes in all direction. You can follow the links I made on Fine A Grave. My dad did not take pictures of any headstones. SO, since I am out there anyway, why not take pictures of other headstones.

The County I will be going to is Harnett, Johnston, Wilson, Nash and Edgecombe, all in NC.
These are the main Counties.

I made this line for family members who would like to trace their family ancestry.


I prefer you to send me information on Find A Grave Memorial. Once I know there is an interest on that person, I will add the information and add some other information that I can find and sometimes I will start a family member search.(Trace their family tree) I love doing this and I do this for free.

Please do not ask for a Transfer just to own it.

Please add or contact me if you have family photos .......

RE: Pittman / Womble
Hi Billy, I had a son in 2003, working full time etc so had to step away and take of the living.

My jump off on the Pittman's has been info given to me by my grandma Pearl Womble and her sister Peggy. I've taken what I know and added sources from ancestry. I'm sure it's not 100% but it's a working (living) document.

I see that my 2nd cousin Debra Hardy is on here and ancestry. I'm sure she has additional information and I'll be checking it out. I am uncertain of the parentage of John Thomas Womble though I see some unsourced info on findagrave.

I am beginning to gather documentation so I can attempt DAR/SAR membership while my dad and his sister's are still around to enjoy seeing it happen.

Womble / Pittman
Hi Billy, just saw an old message between yourself and Debra Harvey referencing my grandmother Eva Pearl Pittman. Your dad and I communicated a bit between 2000-2002. I am related to John Womble 1756 and John Thomas Pittman 1853. Robin Womble Autry

Walls Cemetery, Selma, NC
According to an article in the Smithfield Herald, 27 Aug 2009. This cemetery was identified as Walnut Grove Cemetery by Mr Quinton Wall. I have seen death certificates for some of these people which also identify the cemetery as Walnut Grove, Selma.

Walnut Grove Cemetery, Selma Twp, Johnston Co NC
Walnut Grove is located on JR Road, near Selma’s shopping outlets. The cemetery contains graves of town pastors and World War I and II veterans. The cemetery was originally part of Allen Wall’s land, and he gave it to an administrative board of trustees to be used as a cemetery. There are about 75 unmarked graves in the cemetery. Quinton Wall, of Smithfield, featured in The Selma News, Rebecca Piscopo, News Staff Writer, 27 Aug 2009. Additional entries from death certificates.

Pittman Family Cemetery
I was wondering if you could tell me a more exact location of the Pittman Family Cemetery in Upper Fishing Twp., Edgecombe, NC. I am married to a descendant, and we will be in NC soon and would like to visit the cemetery while there. Thanks for your help.

Martha Sarah Wiggs Mayo parents
Hi, Billy,

I'm doing the family history of Harts and Aycocks in North Carolina, and I ran into your Find-a-Grave memorial for Martha Sarah Wiggs Mayo. She is sister to my GG Grandmother Mary E. Wiggs, who married Ervin Aycock. I've been trying to find information on the ancestors of their parents, Henry Wiggs and Eveline Pearce. I was wondering if you have (A) any proof that Pearce was Eveline's last name, and (B) any information on her parents, or Henry's. (There were about four Henry Wiggs' in Wayne/Johnston county at about that time, so I'm having a hard time telling which was which.)

Any help appreciated, and if you are interested in Mary Wiggs Aycock's family, I can help you out.

Her death cert shows he father as John but I see a marriage record for Mary Ann Skinner and Am C Harrell, who had a brother John. Any idea what's up with that? W C was my first cousin, four times removed. Alice Looney

fairly sure we are relatives
Dear Mr. Womble,

My name is Bobby Taylor from Disputanta, Va and I am fairly sure we are relatives. My 3rd generation great-grandmother was Susan F. Womble Lucas who was married to Wiley l. Lucas. They were parents to my grandmother, Emma Virginia Lucas Taylor. I have found during my genealogy search that most of my Taylor and Lucas ancestors lived in or around Edgecombe County, NC.

I am a Civil War enthusiast and would dearly love to join The Sons of Confederate Veterans. To be able to accomplish this, I need to identify a direct descendant that fought in the war and be able to substantiate that descendant. I have found several candidates but am not positive.

I saw your spot on and the pictures of The Silas Lucas, Sr. Cemetery in Lucama, NC and saw the headstone of Daniel Lucas (1775-Nov. 18 1848) who I am 99% sure is my 8th generation great-grandfather.

If you could provide any assistance, I can't begin to tell you how much I would appreciate your help. Also, I would love to meet you because I'm sure you know some Taylor's in the Tarboro area that would be related to both of us. You can reply via email to: I was already planning a trip to Tarboro, so I would love to meet with you when I come.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Robert E. "Bobby" Taylor, Sr. #48376247
