MAGNA CHARTA SURETY Barons and members of other nobility and Royalty; the indication seems to be that the ALICE AUDLEY, who married RALPH de NEVILLE, second Baron, was the daughter of the aforesaid (immediately above) JOAN MARTIN and NICHOLAS AUDLEY. However, on p. 74 Wurts' Magna Charta, shows that the said ALICE AUDLEY, who married RALPH de NEVILLE, second Baron, was the daughter of HUGH AUDLEY. )

(NOTE: Generations No. 136 through No. 147 and Will of John Pryor from MSS Dempsey Monroe Kemp, Greensburg, Louisiana) A daughter of Margaret Gaines and her husband, John Pryor of North Carolina;

(Generation No. 147) MILDRED PRYOR, who, with her husband, DAVID WOMACK, the 1st, was mentioned in the will of Hon. John Pryor, of North Carolina, died after 1803 in Beaufort Disc. S. C. "?" Mildred's husband, the said David Womack, was born 1747 in Henrico County, Virginia, died after 1803 in Beaufort District, S. C. "?" David 1st was the son of Richard Womack the 3rd and his wife Anne "Nancy" Childers, as proved by the family record in the Family Bible of Abraham Womack, Jr., which Bible, (in the year 1957), was in the hands of Mrs. Doris Holland, of Greensburg, Louisiana. Mrs. Holland later re-married.

DAVID WOMACK, PATRIOT, the 1st, was a Revolutionary soldier, and was appointed 11 September 1777, as Patroller of Nash District, North Carolina. He was born before 1747 in N. C., died after 1803, Beaufort Disc. S. C. His father, Richard Womack III, settled in Burke County, Georgia. So far as was known to our Womack Genealogists, there has been no research in Europe on this branch of the Womack family, but we give herewith the earliest records known of our antecedents in this country (Virginia). (Our researchers did not find that an Archbishop Womack of England left a male heir, however, we have found Womack descendants in various states who are convinced that the Archbishop is their English ancestor.) Dempsey M. Kemp and his genealogical co-worker, Elliott Spear, of Bastrop, Louisiana, did thorough research on WOMACKS; Dempsey Kemp, in his manuscripts, often quoted Womack Genealogy from the "Valentine Papers", published by Edward Pleasants Valentine (or Edward Virginius Valentine ((1838-1930)), the American sculptor, born in Richmond, Virginia, who was also a Womack descendant.) (Valentine's best known work was the recumbent statue of General Robert E. Lee, now in the memorial chapel of the Washington and Lee University, Lexington, Virginia.)

The earliest known Womack ancestor of DAVID WOMACK 1st (born 1747) who married Mildred Pryor, was; RICHARD WOMACK I, born 1655 in Henrico County, Virginia, died 1684, Henrico County, Virginia, married Mary Puckett, daughter of John Puckett and his wife, Ann. Their son; RICHARD WOMACK, the 2nd, born about 1676, Henrico County, Virginia, married Elizabeth Puckett, born Henrico Co., Virginia (daughter of Richard Puckett, who was born Henrico Co., Va.) Their son; RICHARD WOMACK, the 3rd, born 7 December 1710, Henrico Co., Va., died 25 July 1785 in Georgia (moved to Georgia 1765); married Anne "Nancy" Childers, born Henrico Co., Va., daughter of Henry Childers, born Henrico Co., Va., died 1727, Henrico Co., Va., who was the son of Abraham Childers, Jr., (born about 1655 in Henrico Co., Va., died between 1693- 1698). Abraham Childers, Jr., was the son of Abraham Childers, who died prior to 21 November 1680, in Henrico co., Va. The aforesaid Henry Childers (died 1727), married Lucretia Jones, daughter of Thomas Jones and Martha Tanner, daughter of Joseph Tanner and his wife, Mary. The said Abraham Childers, Jr. (born about 1655, died between 1693 and 1698), married Ann Pew, daughter of Henry Pew Jr., born about 1635, died about 1710, Henrico Co., Va., who married Jane Womack, daughter of William Womack, who lived Henrico Co., Va., prior to 1679.

RICHARD WOMACK III (1710-1785), and his wife, Anne (Nancy) Childers, had the following children;

War); (4) Major Jacob Womack; (5) Richard Womack "?"; (6) Lieutenant Jesse Womack, (in Revo. War); (7) DAVID WOMACK, (in Revolutionary War, who married Mildred Pryor. Two sons of Richard Womack III, and his wife Anne "Nancy" Childers, namely, DAVID WOMACK, (in Revo. War), who is listed in above paragraph as child No. 7, and JOHN WOMACK, (in Revo. War), listed as child No. 3, married daughters of the Hon. John Pryor, of North Carolina, and his wife, Margaret Gaines:
DAVID WOMACK, (7th child), having married Mildred Pryor, and JOHN WOMACK, (3rd child), having married Mildred Pryor's sister, Lucy Pryor Tapley, the widow of Hosea Tapley. both these daughters, Mildred and Lucy, were mentioned in the will of their father, John Pryor, as was also Mildred's husband, DAVID WOMACK, David having been named as one of the executors of John Pryor's will, (which has been quoted in full above.) (Dempsey M. Kemp's records show that Jacob P. Womack, son of the said John Womack and his wife, Lucy Pryor (Tapley) Womack, married Nancy Ann Faddis, and on 3 September 1833, sold his land in Orange County, N. C. to one of his Faddis brothers-in-law, and moved, first, to DeSoto County, Mississippi, thence to Marshall, Harrison Co., Texas.

________________

To refresh the memory of the reader:

Abraham Womack, (Sr.) (in War of 1812), the great-grandfather of Rebah Tillery Kemp, wife of Dempsey Monroe Kemp (deceased), of Greensburg, La., was a brother of Col. Abner Womack (War 1812), who moved from St. Helena Parish, La., to Simpson Co., Mississippi, the said David having been the ancestor of Ina Womack Jones, (Mrs. Will C. Jones, Jr., of Dallas, Texas), and Nora Weathersby Smith (Mrs. George Flowers Smith), of Jackson, Mississippi. And the said brothers, Abraham, Col. Abner and David, were brothers of Richard Womack, the eldest child of David Womack (of Revo. War) and his wife, Mildred Pryor, the said Richard Womack (the 4th), having been the great-great-grandfather of Jessie Womack Moorhead (Mrs. Hunter L. Moorhead of Jackson, Mississippi). Elliott Spear, deceased of Bastrop, La., who worked with his cousin, Dempsey Monroe Kemp, of Greensburg, La., in assembling the data on the ancestors and descendants of Richard Womack III and his wife, Ann "Nancy" Childers, was also a great-grandson of Col. Abner Womack. This is given to show the relationship of the cousins, Rebah Tillery Kemp; her husband, Dempsey Monroe Kemp (deceased); Elliott Spear (deceased); Ina Womack Jones; Nora Weathersby Smith; and Jessie Womack Morhead, who have assisted in assembling the Family History for the benefit of living descendants and for future generations. The eldest of the eight children of David Womack (of Revolutionary War) and his wife Mildred Pryor, above mentioned, was; (Generation No. 148) RICHARD WOMACK, the 4th, "probably the eldest", said Dempsey Monroe Kemp, Genealogist, of Greensburg, St. Helena Parish, La. "Richard Womack", continues Dempsey Monroe Kemp, "came to Louisiana in very early days, and in 1809, settled, or purchased land adjoining his brother, Col. Abner Womack, in St. Helena Parish, La.; and in 1810 was in Amite Co., Mississippi, listed with "1 male over 21". "This Richard was born in Orange Co., N.C., was married twice, name of both wives unknown, but the names of the children by both wives are known" END QUOTE FROM DEMPSEY MONROE KEMP.

This Richard's birth was probably before, or shortly after 1771, when Richard's father, David Womack, and David's wife, Mildred Pryor, were named in the will of the Hon. John Pryor, of North Carolina. Dempsey Monroe Kemp gives the names of the children of Richard Womack, the 4th, by his first wife as "Mary", "Andrew", "Richard", and "David", (but after the death of Dempsey M. Kemp, the old Family Bible of "Richard", the third child of Richard Womack, the 4th, was found, and the Bible record shows that there was another child of the first marriage of Richard Womack, the 4th, whose name was John). Genealogist Dempsey M. Kemp gives the names of the children of Richard Womack, the 4th, by his second wife, as (1) Abner Pryor; (2) Robert; (3) Jacob; (4) Abraham; (5) William; (6) Millie; (7) Sallie; (8) Daniel; the names of the children of the second marriage of Richard Womack, the 4th, having been given in a letter written by one John Abraham Womack, the son of Daniel Womack (listed above as the 8th and youngest child of Richard the 4th, by his second wife.) Mrs. Alma Hill Robertson (a Womack descendant) of Shawnee, Oklahoma, while doing family research in Simpson Co., Mississippi, in 1958 (as above stated, after the death of Dempsey Monroe Kemp, Genealogist), succeeded in locating the old Family Bible of Richard Womack (the 5th) (son of Richard IV), and Richard the 5th's wife, Emily Thames Miller. Later, your compiler also visited James Albert Womack (present owner of the Richard Womack-Emily Thames Bible), who lives R.F.D., Mendenhall, Simpson Co., Mississippi, and she also carefully examined the Family records in the Old Bible, finding on one of the first blank pages of same the following inscription; "His brothers were, John Womack, born September 5, 1790; Mary Womack, born April 12, 1793' Andrew Womack, born August 10, 1795; Richard Womack, born March 4, 1797; David Womack, born May 8, 1800;

The names listed on the page of the Old Bible are those of the children of Richard Womack IV, by his first marriage, "wife's name unknown", and as above stated, it was not until after this Old Bible of Richard Womack-Emily Thames was located, did our researchers, who continued their work after the death of Dempsey M. Kemp, know that there was a son "John" among the children of Richard Womack, the 4th, by his first wife. However, the Old Bible record on "JOHN" agrees with one we have in the form of a Map, or Chart, made for Elliott Spear (deceased) of Bastrop, La., by an old man, 95 years of age in 1939, named "Jacob Moore Womack", who lists on his Chart a "JOHN" Womack, who was a half-brother of old Chart Maker Jacob Moore Womack's father, Jacob, "Jake" Womack, the third child of Richard Womack, the 4th, by Richard, the 4th's second marriage. So, at last, this would account for the "male over 21" who was listed in Amite Co., Mississippi, in 1810 with RICHARD WOMACK; and "John" Womack was one of the signers, either as a signature witness, or as a signer of one of the affidavits made in an effort to secure the "bounty" (allowed to widows of soldiers), due Mrs. Sarah Womack, widow of David Womack, (War of 1812). In making the above mentioned Chart for Elliott Spear, (Womack researcher); 95 year old Jacob Moore Womack, who was born and reared in Copiah Co., Mississippi, evidently did so with the intention of giving the names and all that he knew concerning his Womack uncles and half-uncles, the brothers and half-brothers of his father, Jacob "Jake" Womack (however, other family records show that there were five or six more uncles, half uncles, and aunts that he did not seem to know about, but as his Chart is of interest to your compiler, as well as all descendants of Andrew Womack, one of the principal names listed on the chart, the same is given below):

CHART OF 95 YEAR OLD JACOB MOORE WOMACK:

(Comments are made, in explanation, by your compiler)
(1) Daniel Womack (first four names listed "moved from S.C. to St. Helena Parish, La. to a place called Hog Branch".) (The said "Daniel" was youngest son of Richard Womack the 4th.)
(2) John Womack (we now know was oldest child of Richard Womack, 4th.)
(3) Abraham Womack, (Hog Branch, La.) (son by Richard 4th's 2nd wife.)
(4) Abner Womack, (Hog Branch, La.) (son by Richard 4th's 2nd wife.)
(5) David Womack, "moved from S. C. to Brandon, Rankin Co., Miss." "1. Byrd Womack, an M.D. of Waco, Texas" "2. ??????" (this David was born 1800, youngest child "3. ??????" of Richard Womack 4th by first marriage, had among other children 3 or 4 "Dr." sons.)

(6) Andrew Womack, moved from S. C. to near Smith and Simpson Counties,

"1. Bill" Raleigh, Miss"

"2. Dave"

"3. John"

(Comment: 95 year old Jacob Moore Womack, reared in the same country neighborhood with "Bill", "Dave" and "John" Womack, overlooked the name of "Richard R. Womack", who was the son of No. 6 Andrew, and the father of the said "Bill", "Dave" and "John", these three, "Bill", having been the father of your compiler, and "Dave" and "John"; "Bill's" brothers. Bill, Dave and John were the three oldest sons (of the 13 children) of Andrew's son Richard R. Womack. This error and the one of naming "Katie R. Mickel, who was Katie Goings" (one of the wives of Jacob "Jake" Womack) as Jacob Moore Womack's own mother (when actually Jacob Moore's own mother was another wife of Jacob "Jake" Womack, the former Widow Kezziah Beard), were the only two mistakes seemingly made in the good chart of this very old man (95 years of age.) "moved from S.C. to Copiah Co. near Hazlehurst, Miss. "12 miles East near Georgetown."

1. "Dick Womack"

2. "Rebecca Womack (comment- married Thos. J. Ramsey)

3. "John"

4. "Elizabeth, married W. P. Randall, raised family at Thornton, Tex."

5. "Dan Womack"

6. "Ab Womack (listed in Census as "A.G.B." Womack"

(7) "Jake Womack married Katie

R. Mickel, widow, who was Katie Goings" "John Samuel, Hazlehurst, Miss." "Jacob Leonidas, died small." "Melvin Eugene" "Vira, Mrs. W.W. Kenedy, Jackson, La."

7. "Jacob Moore, aged 95 (in 1939) "Jake" confed. under Genl. Albert "Bob", Utica, Miss. Sidney Johnston and Genl. Nathan B. Forrest

8. "Jeff Womack"

9. "Martha Womack

10. "Mattie Womack" (Millie or Mollie)

11. "David Cornelius Womack"

Comment by Elliott Spear to Mrs. Rosa Kemp Adams, a sister of Dempsey M. Kemp, "Above information furnished by J.M. Womack, 95 years old, only one of Jake's eleven children now living, at present at Jackson, La., c/o Mrs. A. W. Kenedy, 2/24/1939. A true copy 3/4/1939".

(Comment - by compiler; Judge Jasper Guynes, Hazlehurst, Mississippi, recently deceased, wrote your compiler that his half-great Uncle, the said Jacob Moore Womack, lived to be more than 100 years of age.)

Among the descendants of the No. 2 child (Rebecca Womack Ramsey) of the No. 7 principal man ("Jake Womack", who married Katie R. Mickel) named in the Chart of 95 year old Jacob Moore Womack are Judge Jasper Guynes, Hazlehurst, Mississippi (wife of Judge R. Olney Arrington, of the Supreme Court of Mississippi), all of whom are grand-children of the said Rebecca Womack (Mrs. Thos. J. Ramsey). Also, current family knowledge of lineage; U. S. Census records of Copiah Co., Mississippi, and marriage records tend to indicate that the John Womack, who married the widow Nancy Wright Nolley, known ancestress of Bernard K. Smith, Jonestown, Mississippi, his brother, Joseph Womack Smith, Union Church, Miss., and their sister, Mrs. Ethan Allen, Jackson, Mississippi, was the "John" Womack, listed as the 3rd child of "Jake" Womack on the above described Chart of 95 year old Jacob Moore Womack.

(Generation No. 149) ANDREW WOMACK, born August 10 1795, in Georgia, died after 1860, married Elizabeth ______, was the third child of Richard Womack, the 4th, by Richard's first marriage. Andrew Womack was listed in U. S. Census record of Copiah Co., Mississippi, prior to 1850; in census records of Simpson Co., Mississippi, with wife, Elizabeth, in 1850, and in Smith Co. Census record, with wife, Elizabeth and daughter Hettie (or Hattie), in 1860. As his home was almost on the dividing line between the Counties of Smith and Simpson, it is highly probable that he was at his old home in Simpson, and not in Smith Co., when the 1860 Census was taken. Your compiler made a trip to Raleigh, Miss. more or less recently and was told by the very old residents of the community that "Andrew, Richard, and Andrew's daughter, Hattie, were buried on the same family plot in the Old Merchant Cemetery, "but, unfortunately, the graves were not marked. Andrew's son, David Daniel Womack, was the grandfather of Willie David Womack, (Sr.) of Belzoni, Humphreys Co., Miss. The said David Daniel Womack, born 1828/9, Simpson Co., Mississippi, married Mary (Polly) Hayes, who was born in Simpson County between 1830/3, and they lived in Simpson Co., until after 1866/7.

The said David Daniel had a sister, Eliza, born 1831, died 1906, who married Tom Oglesby, and family records show that "David Daniel had a brother, Andrew, and a brother, Richard (and "probably other sisters and brothers not known to his descendants). The wife of the said David Daniel, Mary, (Polly) Hayes, was a sister of Dicy (Dica) Jane Hayes, wife of David Daniel's brother, Richard R. Womack, of Simpson County, Mississippi.
