Sofronia Womble as it's spelled on her marriage license was also known as "Safronia" Womble. She was one year older than John Baker Harrison. They were married January 17th, 1872 and she died a month later on February 20th, 1872. I do not know how she died so suddenly.
John B. married Paralee Womble who was Sofronia's older sister two years later on Christmas day.

[NI2067] "Daddy's sisters Della and Flora both lived in McKenzie, Tenn. Hewas a vet eran railroad man and had a permanent pass to rice anytime, anywhere on t he system. He visited them one afternoon a week until they died., He somet imes took me along. Della was widowed and ill and bedridden from the ti me I knew her. She had 2 sons, "U.L." a teenager and "Harrison" -- early 2 0's, I think--and maybe a daughter, whose name I can't recall--if she di d. When she died, U L came to live with us for a few years--later we nt to Chicago and later to Mansfield, Ohio where we lost track of him.

Harrison lived in Martin for a while--then disappeared--I never heard anym ore of him.

Flora was married to Ernest Argo--a Kind of Jack of all Trades--but main ly had a shoe repair shop--like uncle Jim. He was also part of the volunte er fire dept--Chief? I think, and had a funeral parlor for awhilel

Aunt Flora was also ill and bed-ridden when I knew her--they had a daughte r, Mary Alen--a red head, whom I adored.

When I went into the army in 1943 I had to change trains in McKenzie and w ent by to see him. He still had the shoe shop and had remarried. He appear ed to be in rather poor financial condition and had sold the nice brick ho me which I remember and was living upstairs over the shoe shop. I think Fl ora's death drained him financialy and emotionally.

My sister mentioned she had run into Mary Allen in Memphis and she was app arently doing OK."

Woodie is probably not his real name. Bill Harrison says that an aunt rec alls his name was Zephaniah. This is quite possible, as his mother, Paral ee Womble, had a brother named Zephaniah.


2001/04/01
BINGO! It sure as heck is!
Copy that page please.
Boy, I thought I married a young one! Georgia is eighteen and has been
married SIX years! I think there is a typo somewhere, as the story is
that Georgia was several years older than Woodie, so that is most likely
28 years old, otherwise my mom would have been born when her mom was
thirteen. One of the researchers on the Weakley List, Len Milner,
thinks she was ten years older yet!
I'd like to double check the Civil District where they were, I'm pretty
sure it was Martin as two years later Carolyn was born in Martin.
What I plan to do is check the Weakley County TN 1900 census to find
Woodie as a fifteen year old in the home of John Baker Harrison,
household 286. (John Baker also appears on the 1880 census in Weakley
county.) Woodie may already have become Woodie at that age. Wouldn't
it be nice to find him at age six on the "1890 census?" His parents
might have given his real name to the census taker. Oh well.

Ann,
Thanks for the obit for General Grant H. Those Harrisons marched to a
different drummer. My grandfather, Woodie Harrison, always said he
thought he was the only republican in Weakley County. Can you imagine
naming a son General Grant at the outbreak of the war of northern
aggression?

[NI2070] Note that the obituary of James Calvin Harrison who died March 1967 states that Brooksie Edmundson of Memphis survives him.

===============================================================
Brooksie apparently was daddy's favorite sister--and married someone he did not approve of--and they never spoke again until the late 1900's when they "made-up".

My sister has a picture of them made at her home in Sharon in 1952? She showed me the picture but Gene Harkey probably has it.
