The following is excerpted from the introduction to the book:

    One of the world's many million descendants of Adam and Eve takes a long look at her forebears through the eyes of John S. Wurts in his "Magna Charta", and his more than one hundred books and articles of bibliographic reference; and Dempsey Monroe Kemp, the well-known genealogical authority of Greensburg, Louisiana, in his many unpublished manuscripts of research. Some of this research goes farther back than the data quoted in "Magna Charta".

    Ina Womack Jones, (Mrs. Will C. Jones, Jr.), Dallas, Texas, and Nora Weathersby Smith, (Mrs. George F. Smith), Jackson, Mississippi, worked tirelessly on descendants of David Womack, War of 1812 veteran, and his wife, the former Sarah Norris. Also, on the descendants of Richard Womack; Richard Womack having been a brother of the said David Womack. These two brothers migrating from St. Helena Parish, Louisiana, thence to Simpson County, Mississippi.

    Mrs. Will C. Jones, Jr. and her cousin, Mrs. George F. Smith, were fortunate in locating another Womack descendant, Dempsey Monroe Kemp, genealogist, of Greensburg, Louisiana, who was a descendant of Colonel Abner Womack, of St. Helena Parish, Louisiana, another brother of the aforesaid Richard Womack and David Womack, War of 1812 veteran. Dempsey M. Kemp carrying the ancestral quest back to William the Conqueror, father of King Henry I, of England. Jessie Womack Moorhead, (Mrs. Hunter L. Moorhead), Jackson, Mississippi, having idled on the sidelines, enjoying the fruits of the labor of her cousins, aforesaid, later busied herself with traveling back along the royal highways opened up by John S. Wurts in "Magna Charta" and his bibliographic references of more than one hundred books and articles, which include in their number: John O'Hart, "Irish Pedigrees", Dublin, 1892; James Anderson, D. D., "Royal Genealogies", London, 1732.

    Adam Rutherford, "Anglo Saxon Israel", is also a reference in the genealogy of King Malcolm III, of Scotland, back to Adam, but seems not to be included in the bibliography of "Magna Charta". Sections of "Irish Pedigrees" and "Royal Genealogies" take us back farther than does "Magna Charta" in Volumes I and II. Some of the references carry the genealogy back through the Royal houses of England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France, Italy, Spain, Russia and Jerusalem, to the beginning of mankind.

    This manuscript has special reference to the descendants of Margaret Bernard, who was a direct descendant of Matilda, (Maud), daughter of King Henry I, of England; and Matilda's husband, Geoffrey V Plantagenet, Count of Anjou, Duke of Normandy; the aforesaid Margaret Bernard having married Captain Daniel Gaines, who came from England to Virginia, "in America", from whom descends Mildred Pryor, wife of David Womack, Revolutionary War veteran.
