John, Roy,

Elizabeth Womack's father was Abraham Womack. This Abraham left a will in Lincoln County, NC in 1803 (It does not mention Elizabeth.) Abraham was the son of Thomas Womack and Mary Farley of Chesterfield Co., VA. The William you mention was the brother of Abraham and died childless in 1790. His estate was divied up among his brothers and sisters and their children. In the court papers is the proof of Elizabeth's father. Roger Womack has put them on a web page:

Some highlights though:

Rec'd of Asa Dupuy, one of the commissioners to the Estate of William Womack, dec'd, of Charlotte County Virginia, the sum of one hundred eighteen dollars and sixty seven cents, that being one fourth of one ninth of that part of the estate of William Womack dec'd that has fallen into the hands of James Dupuy and Asa Dupuy to be divided between the parties interested. I am entitled to an interest in said estate in the manner following, viz., my father, Abraham Womack Jr. of Caswell County, N. Carolina, was a son of Abraham Womack Sen'r of Lincoln County, N.
