Biographical & Portrait Cyclopedia

HENRY F. WOMER, M.D., of Johnstown, who stands high in his honored and useful profession, is a son of Michael and Elizabeth (Frain) Womer, and was born December 28, 1848, in that part of Union that is now Snyder county, Pennsylvania. The American ancestry of the Womer family, like unnumbered thousands of other families, reaches back but a few generations, and loses the links of its chain with Daniel Womer, the grandfather of the subject of this sketch.
Daniel Womer was born, reared and died in Lebanon, Snyder county, and saw a century, lacking two years, his life-span reaching
from 1762 to 1860. He was a good farmer and a fine shot, served as a soldier in the War of 1812, and had quite a reputation as a hunter and a fisher at a time when the forests abounded with game and the streams were filled with fish. He was of Irish descent, and a member of the same family as Congressman Womer, of Lebanon county. His son, Michael Womer, was a life-long resident of Snyder county, dying June 10, 1893, at seventy-eight years of age. He was a farmer and a member of the United Brethren church, and married Elizabeth Frain, who was a native of near Middleburg, Snyder county, and died at seventy-nine years of age in 1891, while her mother, whose maiden name was Marv Bergstrasser, lived to be over ninety years of age.
Dr. Henry F. Womer spent most of his minority at home on the farm, received his education in the common schools, Freesburg academy and the Millersville State Normal school, and taught for three years in the public schools. He then read medicine with Dr. H. M. Nipple, of Fremont, Snyder county, and a short time after entered Jefferson Medical college, of Philadelphia, from which he graduated in the class of 1878. In the year of his graduation he began practice as a physician at Nicker's Half Falls, in Snyder county, where he was actively engaged for six years. At the end of that time, in 1884, he removed to Liverpool, in Perry county, at which place he had a good practice, and remained for six years. He then, in 1890, sought for a wider and more specially adapted field to his capabilities, and selected Johnstown, which has fully met his expectations. He has built up a desirable and lucrative practice, which is not confined within or circumscribed by the boundary lines of the city. Dr. Womer never permitted individual comfort or personal enjoyment to come between him and his patient, but so loves and respects his noble profession that its toils become his pleasures.
Dr. Womer, in 1875, married Lizzie Wolf, daughter of John S. Wolf, of Snyder county. Dr. and Mrs. Womer have three children, two sons and one daughter: Dollie F., William E., and Maynard W.
