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.

ON TRANSFER:

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.

Womble Heritage
Although I live in Kentucky, my grandfather was born in Edgecombe County. I'm researching some history on his family. I'm looking for Maretta Scott or any other Womble's that may be related. Please feel free to email me ginger.james313@gmail.com.

Thank you for the updates to this site.

Sallie Creech Grice
Greetings Mr. Womble and thank you for all the great work here! I am writing today because I have been doing a little work on the Grice family and the curiosity that those buried in the Grice graveyard in Wilson County seem to be unrelated on the surface, and I came a cross a curiosity where Sallie is concerned.
I cannot exactly prove the parentage of Sallie Creech. Her death certificate reveals her parents as Jerome and Sallie Creech. Although I have never seen Frances Batten ever referred to as "Sallie" elsewhere, I can only find one Jerome Creech in any census. Also, in the 1900 census, Frances Creech is listed as having had 10 children, with 7 living, but only 6 are listed with the family. Since she and Jerome married in 1878 and Sallie Creech was born in Mar 1880 (the 1900 census states April), it makes sense that she would be the missing child, particularly since she had married Dave Grice only a month before the census data was taken.
Moreover it is telling that Sallie is buried in the Holland Cemetery where her hypothetical parents are. David Berry Grice is buried WAY over in Wilson County, at Mount Zion Church.
I continue to work on these Grices, their movements make them quite hard to track, but thought I would share.
Cheers from Washington NC.

Katie Elizabeth Batts Collins, Memorial #84546188
I was in Halifax County recently photographing the Harvey Cemetery and discovered the grave of Katie Collins. She is buried in the Harvey Cemetery, Halifax County, NC. (It is not the Harvey Family Cemetery on Find A Grave, just Harvey Cemetery.) She is buried beside James Henry Collins and Pattie A. Herbert Collins. I added a photo of her tombstone to your memorial.

Van B. Etheredge Cemetary
I am trying to locate the Van B. Etheredge cemetery. I saw where some one had photographs of the grave headstones for Van B. Etheredge and wife Ellen Moore Etheredge. It is listed as being on Rosebud Church Road, .6 tenths of a mile from Cattail Road in Wilson County, NC. I have been up and down both these roads but have not found it. I was wondering if this address is correct or if anyone is familiar with the location of this cemetery.

Edmund Cushing
Hello, I am researching Charles and Hannah (Croade) Cushing and was excited to see a photo of their son Edmund on your page. I'm not sure how interested you are in their history, but I would love to know if there is more information available about them in Lunenburg, at the historical society or if you have any you are willing to share. Thank you, Meg
