Today in Family History - 25 Jul

Two events to recall today.

My great-grandmother Georgia Effie Florene Pegoda was born on this day in 1903 near Riverside, Walker, Texas, probably at the home of her grandmother Loretta Josephine Jones.

My 7th great-grandfather Richard Womack, III died on this day in 1785 in Hancock County, Georgia while visiting his son Abraham. No documentation on this one; it ran out at his son Jesse. Given the time in which he lived and the fact that his son Jesse served in the Continental Army, Richard could very well have been a Patriot of the American Revolution (via something like material support or grand jury service), but I have no evidence to this effect and he is not listed in the DAR patriot index.
