  • Notes 
    • OCCUPATION: !Doctor by profession and a surgeon in the Confederate Army.

      6th, A. L. J. Womack (Abner) was a doctor. He first hung out his shingle in Hillsboro, Tenn., remained there about 1 year, went from there to the Sam Kenley (?) farm on the road between Prairie Plains and Decherd, remained there one year or more, moved from there to Hawkerville (Alto) remained there one or two years - from there to Beech Grove, practiced there about 2 years - moved from there to Pine Bluff, Ark. in 1852, there he established a drug store but continued the practice of medicine, accumulated consider able property, a farm, Negros, &c. The war came up in 1861. He went into a Confederate command2 I think the gth Ark. Infantry, was a surgeon in his regt., perhaps only assistant surgeon. When the war was ended., his negros freed, the farm and other property gone and devastated, he again engaged in his profession - but his health failed him. So about the year 1875 he came back to Tenn. (perhaps in the month of April) thinking he could recuperate his health, went to Laynes Springs on the Cumberland Mountain and died there in July of the same year, died of Asthma and consumption of the bowles, was buried at the grave yard on fathers old homested. Bro. Abner married Elizabeth Corn. She was raised on Elk River near Estill Springs, Franklin County., Tenn. They had 3 children, Mary Emely, Queen Victoria and Eliza - all three of the girls graduated from Mary Sharp College, Winchester, in June 1861. Their mother is also dead. They have wandered away from Pine Bluff Ark. so I do not now know their whereabouts.
