Wewanta (Wayne County); Pack, Cordial-Caudel families

Surnames: Pack, Cordial-Caudel-Caudil
I'm hoping that someone can help me with these questions.

I have specific records that indicate some of my husband's ancestors came from a place identified as Wewanta in Wayne County. This includes my father-in-law's place of birth (1907), and the residence location shown on his father's WW1 registration card. I have been unable to locate any place named Wewanta in Wayne County, but I can't think that these types of official records could be wrong. The only Wewanta I've located is in Lincoln County, and since Lincoln County was formed in the 1860s, I don't think they would still be using the wrong county name into the 1900s (plus, I don't believe that Lincoln was formed from any part of Wayne).

My father-in-law (a Cordial-Caudel-Caudill, spelled all ways - who's mother was a Pack) used to tell me stories of a family "compound " where many of his family lived that was in Wayne County - not accessible by car/truck - you had to walk in or ride a horse to get there, pass through a few creeks, etc. I know this compound was still there into the late 1930s or early 1940s because my husband told stories about visiting his relatives there. After more research, I now believe this was a "Pack" family compound - described as a bunch of log cabins built in a big circle....and assumed it was close to "Wewanta" since that is the Wayne County location identified as my father-in-law's place of birth. Is anyone from Wayne County familiar with this compound or where it might be located....or where Wewant might have been located?

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
