    • There is some ambiguity about the lineage of John Vowell or John Henry Vowell, but the Y-DNA evidence listed on the web seems to clear up things.

      First the uncertainty: John Henry Vowell's first wife seems to be Leanna Amanda Keen, but the marriage record is in Leake County, Mississippi, about 60 miles from where John lived in Winston County, and in the only listing of a J. Vowell in the 1870 census, J. H. Vowell is listed as a single farm worker from Arkansas living in Koskiusko, Mississippi. There is a record of John Vowell marrying A. J. (Amanda) Allgood (née Blaine) in 1895, which was a few months after Leanna Amanda Keen died. Amanda had previously married H. W. Massingill and Reuben Allgood. The strange thing is that in the 1900 census, there are separate listings for John Vowell and Amanda Vowell. John is listed with his wife Mandy and his younger children, while Amanda Blaine is listed as Amanda Vowell, living with her son Marshall Allgood (from her previous marriage with Reuben Allgood). Is Mandy the same person as Amanda? Is John Vowell the same person as John Henry Vowell? Which one is the child of Malachi Vowell and Nancy Leopard?

      Fortunately, there is an indication on the web (see Notes of Daniel Stucker) that lists Y-DNA results that purports to show that William Vowell (born circa 1717) was the ancestor of Obediah (born 1768), his son Malachi, and his son John Henry. Y-DNA traces male heirs with high accuracy for many generations.

      These questions are relevant, because the supposed son Ely Jordan Vowell of John Henry Vowell and Leanna Amanda Keen is the great great grandfather of Elizabeth "Lizzie" (née RePass) Vitter, niece of website co-hosts Jeffrey & Sharon Vitter. So there is some uncertainty in the Vowell lineage of Lizzie beyond Ely Jordan Vowell.
