Mrs. Kate Holland Judkins
Born in Virginia.
Wife of William Duncan Judkins.
Descendant of Robert Richardson, of Virginia.
Daughter of Christopher Grant Holland and May Katherine Walters, his wife.
Granddaughter of Azariah Graves Walters and Elizabeth Payne Richardson, his wife.
Gr. - granddaughter of Edmund Richardson and Mary Harrison, his wife.
Gr. gr.- granddaughter of Robert Richardson and Frances Harrison, his wife.
Robert Richardson was a soldier and received land warrants for three
years' service in the Revolution.

Provided it is accurate, that does certainly suggest that Elizabeth Richardson Rice who married Archibald Walters in his old age, 2 Jul 1840, Rockingham, was a sister to Edmund Richardson [therefore an aunt of Ann Eliza Payne Richardson Walters] and provides a name for the husband of the widow Frances:

Elizabeth was first married to James Rice, 20 Dec 1824.
Frances Richardson, mother, gave permission for the marriage of Elizabeth and James Rice. Charles Lucas was bondsman. William Blair was the minister. Elizabeth also signed for herself since she was certainly of age.

I did go to the DAR site and Kate Holland Judkins is the only applicant listed for Robert Richardson ....and there is a warning note "FUTURE APPLICANTS MUST COMPLETE ". There apparently is not a complete proof of lineage to Robert Richardson now on file. This is somewhat different from the warning often seen as "Future Applicants Must Prove Correct Service".

Kate also applied under Robert Walters & John Stamps, both lines still acceptable.

Judkins was a Methodist clergyman, a graduate of Randolph-Macon and trustee of the college. William's mother was Mary Gray Ball, eldest daughter of William Waring Ball and Dorothy McCabe. Six of Mary's brothers fought in the Confederate Army, two were killed in battle. Mary Gray was born 12 Feb 1835, died 3 Aug 1858; she married Rev. Judkins, 15 Nov 1855.
