I am attempting to locate any brothers or sisters of my great-great grandfather and his wife. (We have not been able to trace any further than my great-great grandfather Washington Lomax) He was born March 1809 and died 1901 at the age of 92. His wife was Mary B. Scott Lomax, born 1821 and died April 8, 1898 at the age of 77.

The 1840 census for Louisa County, Virginia lists Washington Lomax as a free Negro between the ages of 24 and 36. According to our records, Washington was born in 1809.

The October 22, 1850 census for Louisa County, Virginia listed Washington Lomax as forty years of age. He was enumerated in the same dwelling house as Judy Fremont, age fifty, and Frances Freemont, age 22, both listed as mulattoes. His occupation was not listed.

December 11,1850, Washington Lomax was enumerated in Orange County, Virginia. He was listed as forty years of age, a laborer, along with the family of Edmund Henshaw, age 41, white; a farmer with $10,000 worth of real estate.

In 1870 he was enumerated in the James River Township of Buckingham Co. He was enumerated in the family of Edward Lomax 21, a teacher; Washington 57, a famer; his wife, Mary 42; Jennie 18; Desdmona 17; Archer 14; Frances 12; Emmaline 6; Mary 4 and Evangeline 6 months. The entire family was listed as mulatto.

Any information would be appreciated.

Sonya how can I get a copy of your family tree book. This family is really interesting and I don't know to much about them. George Washinton Lomax was my mom's dad and he died when she was about 4 months old and we just do not have any history. The family is interesting because they are I think one of my mom's cousins said that they were a from the blackfeet tribe.

Lora,
My Uncle Roger Lomax, Jr. was the one who put all the information on computer and kept it current. However, about a week prior to his 90th birthday, last August, he passed away. So, now I'm tasked with keeping the information current. I'm still going through his computer files and am going to try to get it updated as time permits. As soon as I have the information I'll get it to you.

You just described my grandmother. She was a beautiful little woman, who was the envy of the neighborhood because of her beautiful white hair and skin that never wrinkled until just before her death when she lost nearly 40% of her body weight. I am not sure who you are but please if you get this message e-mail me at ramike@msn.com. I have now successfully filled half of my family tree, and on both sides there are some Indian connections, father side Choctaw and mother side Cherokee.

Hi
I am sorry that it took me a long time to reply back but I just found your message. My grandmother was from NC and she was married to George Washington Lomack. She was my best friend. children Oscar, Bertha, James, Raymond, Beatrice, Catherine, Charlie, Irene and Josephine. My great grandmothers name was Martha Lomack and she was an Indian some say blackfoot and some says Cherokee. I vividly remember she was a very old and small lady with white hair and she died around 1970 in Fayetteville NC
