Tammuz comes from the family of Noah, But also the family of God's enemy! He is The Great-Great-Grandson of Noah. 

Noah's son Ham, had a son named Cush who married a woman named Semiramis. They had a son, named Nimrod. After the death of his father (Cush) Nimrod, who was a mighty hunter before the Lord, Married his own mother Semiramis, & became a powerful King while his wife & mother became a very powerful Queen In the land of Shinar. 

Eventually, Nimrod was killed by an enemy, who cut him into pieces sending them to various parts of the Kingdom. His mother& wife, the Queen had all the pieces gathered except one part, which could not be found, which was the sexual, reproductive organ. She then claimed Nimrod could not be brought back to life without it, & she told the people he ascended to the sun, & is now to be called baal, The sun god. She then proclaimed to the people that baal would be present in the form of a flame whether candle or lamp when used in worship. 

The Queen began creating a mystery religion, & with Satan's help, she set herself up as a goddess, who now called herself to be known as Ishtar (pronounced Easter), the moon goddess. She claimed by baal to have immaculately conceived bringing forth a son called Tammuz. 

Tammuz became like his supposed father baal, a mighty hunter, but was killed by a wild pig. The queen proclaimed 40 days of sorrow after the day of his death each year & that is why they wept for him. There's much more, but this is who he is.
