The Lumpkin Family of Georgia

By L. L. Cody

MACON, GEORGIA

INTRODUCTORY

Many interesting facts relating to the Lumpkin family of Georgia, are recorded upon the pages that follow; though the writer does not claim the record to be complete.

It was the intention to include in this narrative all the sons, and the only daughter of John Lumpkin, (born 1762), and his wife, Lucy Hopson; and the two succeeding generations; but owing to the fact that satisfactory information could not in some instances be obtained; some lines have of necessity been omitted.

Mrs. E. B. Spalding of Savannah, Georgia, has been an enthusiastic and generous contributor, and doubtless knows more of the family history than any other. She is great grand daughter of Gov. Wilson Lumpkin, sister of 'he late Judge Pope Barrow, of the East Judicial Circuit; who was one of the most highly esteemed citizens of the State.

The record as here given is of course only a synopsis; there having been several members of the family; whose careers in life would easily furnish material for a volume.

It is a time honored customs with our best people; to record in the Family Bible; the dates of births and deaths, as they occur in the Family Circle. There are some families more highly endowed than others; more favorably situated in life, whose intellectual gifts, as well as attainments in life, call for a more extended recognition. Among the Lumpkin family and connections, have been many of this favored class. '

Mrs. W. L. Peel of Atlanta, died Feb. 1923. She had been for years collecting data, and planning a family history, to consist of two volumes. I brought to her attention, the fact; that I had compile much information relating to the Lumpkin family, and suggested that she use my Mss as part of her work, and as a contribution from me. After examination, she readily accepted my proposition. and but for her untimely death; the work as here recorded would have appeared in her family volumes.

The information here given, will be invaluable to the future chronicler of the family.

On pages 236 and 395, "Whites Statistics of Georgia", much information relating to the Lumpkin family may be found.

 

The Lumpkin Family

 

There have been no records, found so far, ante-dating the time of Col. Jacob Lumpkins arrival in Virginia. On the Mattapony river in King and Queen County, St. Stephens Pirish, there is an old Church, built perhaps as early as 1690, known as "Mattapony Church". A marble slab lies near the north door of this Church, which is inscribed as follows;

JACOB LUMPKIN
0 B I T 14 die September 1708 Aetatis 64
Dux Militum Victor Hostium
Morte Victus pax adsit vives requies
Eterna sepultis.

The home of Col Lumpkin (very neat) was known as "Newington".

The foundation wall of his residence may still be seen from the Church door. He was evidently a man of wealth and station, and doubtless preceded by a line of honorable ancestors before coming to America. Traditions says, the stone that covers his grave was brought from England; the work of inscribing having been done after its arrival in America. He was born during the Cromwellian Era, and reached his majority soon after the accession of Charles, Second.

There is a question of much interest to the family, and one upon which they are to some extent divided as to the first American ancestor. Some contend that it could be no other than Jacob Lumpkin, while others are skeptical upon this point.

As the matter stands at present; the writings of Gov. Wilson Lumpkin furnish the only clue, and this is not satisfactory.

When he was about seventy years of age; he addressed a letter to his daughter, Mrs. Alden; as he says, "for the purpose of giving some family history that he had not previously recorded". Several members of the family have a copy of this letter. In it he refers to the old grave, the marble slab &c; and gives other details that make the identification complete; He says further, "my father once visited this grave; for the purposes of ascertaining the correct method of spelling the family name". He says further; "so far as I had means of ascertaining; this individual is progenitor of all the Lumpkin family in America.

Gov. Lumpkin was intimately associated with both his father and grandfather during their lives; and must have learned from them much of the family past: in the letter to Mrs. Alden. he says, "my grandfather gave me many interesting details about the ancestry of our family. This grandfather: George Lumpkin' was born about 1725, and about ten years after the death of Jacob Lumpkin. When Gov. Lumpkin spoke of the grave in Virginia; there is little doubt about his having in mind, Jacob Lumpkin, and unwittingly substituted the name of Dr. Thomas Lumpkin.

Dr. Thomas Lumpkin may have been the intervening link between Jacob and George: It Is clearly evident that some of the descendants of Jacob Lumpkin went to this Pittsylvania section, and this perhaps accounts for the limited information that we have of the one or two generations that succeeded him.

The inscription on the grave of Jacob Lumpkin is Latin, and if the same has been correctly copied, is defective. The translation is as follows:

JACOB LUMPKIN
Died on the 14 day of September 1708, 64 years Of age.
A leader of soldiers; conqueror of the enemy.
Conquered by death.
May peace be with him; you shall live.
Eternal rest for the buried.

This grave has been visited by, other members of the family; and though diligent search made for a "Thomas" among the Virginia Records, the name does not appear except at a later date.

Gov. Lumpkin speaks of "Dr. Thomas Lumpkin"' as having been the first American ancestor, and the one from whom all others are descended; it is evident that he knew of Jacob, and that he came from England; how then could Thomas be ancestor of all the family in America.

The Public Records of King and Queen County have twice been destroyed by fire; once in 1828 , again in 1864, and for this cause, all information relating to the earlier Lumpkins has been lost. The first family after Jacob of whom there is authentic record consisted of three brothers; George, Joseph, and Anthony Lumpkin. They were born about 1725, and lived in Pittsylvania County, Va. They were perhaps grand children of Jacob, the pioneer. George Lumpkin married Mary Cody, daughter of James Cody, and his wife Sarah Womack. They reared three sons; John, George, and Robert; and one daughter, Mary; named for her Mother. This daughter married Col. John Wilson and remained in Virginia. They left many descendants who rank among the best people of the State. The family chart will be found elsewhere in these writings.

John Lumpkin, son of George, was born in Virginia, 1763; married Lucy Hopson, came to Oglethorpe County, Georgia, 1784.

Georgia, 1827-1838.
From, Removal of the Cherokee Indians from Georgia

By Wilson Lumpkin.

"I am a native of Virginia, and,was born in Pittsylvania County, January 14, 1783. When I was one year old my father removed to Georgia and settled in that part of the State then known as Wilkes,County, now Oglethorpe County. My parents were of English descent on both sides and the birthplace of them and their ancestors for several generations past.

My mother's maiden name was Hopson. My parents had ten sons and only one daughter.

Eight of the ten sons as well as the daughter lived to form matrimonial connections and rear families of children. I was the second son and called after the husband of my father's only sister, Col. John Wilson, of Pittsylvania County, Virginia. My father and his father, George Lumpkin, settled on Long Creek in the year 1784.

My father had a good business education, wrote well, and was active and ready in the transaction of various branches of business.

Blessed by nature with a fine commanding person, upwards of six feet high and perfectly erect in his carriage; naturally fluent in speech, polite, courteous, and exceedingly popular in his deportmant and social intercourse. Rather excitable in his temperament, yet he had sufficient command of his feelings to control his temper when his judgment deemed it proper and epedient to forbear.

During a long public life in various County Offices, few men ever maintained a more uniform popularity; although sometimes censured and blamed as a Public Officer, yet upon due investigation he never failed to rise higher in the public esteem.

He was for many years, acting Magistrate, or Justice of the Peace, in Wilkes County.

After the creation of Oglethorpe County, 1794, he was for many years, Judge of the Inferior Court; was a Member of the Legislature which passed the Rescinding Act of the Yazoo Fraud; a Member of the Convention which framed the present Constitution of Georgia, was elected a "Jeffersonian Elector of President and Vice-President; was many years Clerk of the Superior Court of Oglethorpe County, besides in many, trusts too tedious to mention..

These different positions always. brought within reach of the family, a knowledge of many local public matters which were not accessible to many of the rising generation of that day.

in his home were found more Newspapers, books and reading matter, than was common to families of that period in similar circumstances; in other respects few men retained so large a share of popularity through life In their respective spheres than he did. From the first settlement of the County to this day, he and his immediate descendants have maintained as much character and influence in the County of Oglethorpe as has fallen to the lot of any other whatever.

My mother was a woman of great strength of mind, deeply imbued with the religion of the Bible with. which Book she was so familiar as to need no Concordance to find any passage of Scripture she desired.

At a very early age I paid great attention to all that was said by grown people, especially the aged. I have often sat quietly when a small boy at my mother's feet, and heard her detail the hazardous experiences through which my maternal Uncle, CoL Joseph Hopson passed through the War of the Revolution, in Morgans Rifle Corps in which he served a Captains command.

LETTER OF GOV. WILSON LUMPKIN TO HIS

DAUGHTER, MRS. ANN ALDEN.

Athens, Ga., Oct. 20, 1852.

My dear daughter,

After I shall seen my last of earth, some of my descendants may feel some interest in knowing something of the genealogy of our family; such things as I have not recorded; a few of which I will now append, in the form of a letter addressed to you.

Unimportant and commonplace as these things may appear to others; there may one-yet unborn, who like myself would willingly dwell on the past.

In the History of England I find the name of Lumpkin and though not conspicuously enrolled upon the pages of fame I find nothing of reproach. Indications of mind utility and industry; may be descried from the little I have seen of the name "Lumpkin" as an English name.

Among the early settlers of Virginia I find the name of Dr. Thomas Lumpkin, who settled in King and Queen County in the old Dominion, in the Sixteenth Century. He brought with him from England, a small marble Tablet, or tombstone, to be placed on his grave, and there it a few years ago, unimpaired by time. I had a copy of the inscription taken from this stone, but it is now mislaid or lost, and I cannot now be accurate as to date, etc.

From this individual, as far as I have been able to ascertain, have descended all the Lumkin family of the United States, some of whom are to be found in many of the States of our great and widely extended confederacy.

My father was probably a great grandson of Dr. Thomas Lumkin. My father in his youth on a visit to the coast of Virginia, visited the tomb of this, our first American ancestor. One motive of his visit, was to settle a disputed issue between my Grandfather and his brother, Joseph (my old schoolmaster) in regard to spelling the name "Lumpkin". My grandfather left out the "p". My fathers visit to the grave settled the controversy, the "p" was in it, and so we have all spelled the name ever since, (excepting my grandfather) who continued to leave the "p" out to the day of his death, in writing his name.

My grandfather gave me many interesting details concerning our ancestry, which I deem it unnecessary to reiterate here, suffice to say, while we have no royal blood or aristocratic blood to boast of, I am content to know that we have no reproach or taint from our progentitors. If there be anything to produce a blush, it must be sought for in the present generation, of which I leave others to make up the record.

The Lumpkins, like all other families, have doubtless peculiar traits of character, but it would not become me to dwell upon these distinguishing traits, whether to our credit or discredit as a family. I feel that I may be allowed to say, industry and honesty are common traits in the Lumpkin- family.

The reason why few of them have become wealthy, is neither for want of industry, talent, or vigilant care; it is because they, are not disposed to hoard; but rather to en. joy the fruits of their industry. Allow me to state; many of my fathers family in early times, were remarkable for their gigantic proportions and physical power. My grandfather had a brother by the name of Anthony, who had twelve sons, all born of one mother. None of them were under six feet in height; their average weight being over two hundred pounds, yet none of them carried any surplus flesh. I have seen four of these giant sons of old Uncle Anthony, and truly they were most extraordinary men in Physical appearance and power.

The Lumpkins have been a most prolific race of people. My grandfather however, lost most of his children in infancy. He reared but three sons and one daughter who reared families of children; all of whom, except my father continued to reside in Virginia to the close of their except one of my father's brothers who came to Georgia at a later period of life, and died there.

The maiden name of my grandmother Lumpkin was Cody, and she like all the rest of those days, was a most excellent woman; just what the best of women should be. The Cody family of Warren County were her near relations;. and upon investigation you will find them to be a highly respectable and meritorious family of people.

My grandfathers three sons were named; Robert, George, and John, and his daughter, Mary, after her mother.

Henry Hopson was the father of my mother, and his wifes name was Martha Neville. My grandparents on my mother's side; made some pretentions to aristocratic blood, but I never had the patience or humility to investigate such pretentions, and this contempt of mine for royal blood and noble families, prevented me from investigating the ancestry of my mother as it was my duty to have done. On those, high pretentions, my mother was disinherited for marrying my father, and yet my mothers marriage proved to be more advantageous to her than that of anyone of her brothers and sisters, whose matrimonial connections were formed with the entire approbation of their parents. However they both possessed great intrinsic worth of character; lived in and left the world with unblemished reputations, and both members of the Baptist Church in good standing; leaving a large Estate to be divided amongst the children; except my mother, who was disinherited for marrying against their approbation.

    Ony one child, a daughter, came to gladden this home. but in her, with the numerous grandchildren that came later, a source of happiness and serenity was found that doubtless added many years to the natural span of life. Death came in the Eighty Sixth year of her age.

    The tributes to this noble woman, written by those who personally knew her, attesting her shining virtues, her Fxemplary life, her lnterlectual gifts, show her to have been indeed a rare combination; and it is not a matter of surprise that those who were reared under her motherly care, so well sustained the family reputation.

    The volumes are such as were used for Deedis and Mort19

    The writing is very clear and distinct, and there &to hardly any erasures or corrections. It is almost entirely in

    valued by him, and kept in a safe.

    This Library contains every History of Georjria Vu:tchaseable, all maps, pamplets etc. , pertaining to the hi$, tory 0 Georgia, from the earliest Colonial times. TO house this invaluable collection, he built a fireproof library udon the immediate grounds of his home, "VVormsloe'.

    The following extracts are taken from the two Volumes (Published Edition) presented to Chancellor D. C. Barro;w',* by Mr. DeRenne.

    Vol. I pages eleven and twelve.

    My father being Clerk of the Superior Court, I had frequently in my School days at times when at home been put pretty closely for weeks together, to copying va . rious writ. ings appertaining to the Clerks Office, and became very, familiar with the I,,aws of Georgia, and could readily draw up in due form, Deeds, Wills, Bills of Sale, Mortageg, e I te4 @o@ 16 to 18 was devoted to the Clerks Office, or to laboring in, or superintending my father's farm; during which period I had access to books in which I became deeply interested, and availed myself of every hour of time which could be spared from business.

    I read Josepbus, Plutarch, Rollin, Gibbon, Hume bii(I many other useful books; Blackstone, I had been reading before. I read Smith's Wealth of Nations, Vattel and Paley's Philosophy, with deep interest, and then became an unwavering convert to Free Trade.

    My time was devoted to home duties; continued to do occasionally heavy jobs of writing for my father who *as stM 'Cl6rk of the Superior Court. A portion of tli* twentieth and tweiftty first years of my age were s@ in Oaching school, in a house built by my neighbors near my

    @ence.

    Before the school year closed had upwards of 'forty scholars.

    On the first Monday in October 1804, I was eleew a

     

    20

     

     

    member of the Legislature of Georgia, by a vote of the peoOle of Qglethorpe County, extraordinary for it,% app@@ to generikl consent. I was thus without the slightest seek ing on my part, transferred by the popular voice from mv school house to the halls of the Legislature, T%e presiding officer of the house, Abram Jackson, of Burke County (Brother of our distinguished Tames Jackson (Gen) and a @ bf more than ordinary qualifications for the station vti@ which he was honored. Gov. Milledge filled the Execuii@ Chair; Mr. Jefferson, President.

    The following is copied from the writings of John T. Boifeuillet in the Macon Eveiiing News:

    In 1842, eighty years ago the doors of the Georgia State Sanatorium were thrown open for the admission of ,the first insane inmates.

    I have read that the firs@ reference of any kind to the necessity of establishing an institution for the care of the @insane in Georgia, is to be found in the Annual message of Gov. Wilson Lumpkin addressed to the Senate and House of Representatives of the Statte of Georgia, Nov. 4, 1832, as follows:

    "While our thoughts have turned to the abodes of the unfortunate, I. would avail myself of the occasion most e4arne,stly to invite the serious attention of the Georgia Assem Wy to another class of individuals who are to every community, and who deserve to be amo objects of Legislative care and attention. 'i Idiots, Lunatics and insane persons of every Every Government possessing the means, she hesitancy or procrastination, provide suitable Asvlums for these most distressed ind unfortunate human' beings,"

    There is no record of any action following this recommendation.

    My grandfather, Middleton Pope was essentially jx private citizen. He was a man of fine business ability, of sterling integrity and honor, and genergus nature. I do not remember him, being only two years of age at the tiine of his death, but grandpa has talked to me, and I know how my father honored him and he in turn bonorw my father.

    ,Ile was'a successful Planter, and left much Real Fs@, part of which he had inherited from his father. His %)er@l property amounted to nearly one hundred @thou@ dollars, as appraised at his death. Under the will, my, fatbar v^s sole Executor, with authority to s&, all, or any, of his property, to change investments, etc., at will.

    la spite of his wealth he lived quietly, with ostentation Am; but with every comfort; surrounded by his. &V" family.

    The n@'time'l visit Athens, will send you the in@tion on Uncle Sammy's tomb, which is quite long. It is in the old Cemetery, not far from the ChancellWs resi&mce on the campus.

    11 @ The three pictures sent you were the children of the Annis Hopkin's marriage; a hand oil painting now the of Mrs. Peel, left her by Aunt Mattie. The porCr@f grandpa was painted while he was a member of the Senate. There is a very fine picture of him as Govern-or, of which I have a copy, I think a steel engraving. The oil portrait of which I rent you the small wood cut, Aunt Mattie left to the State.

    Brother David bought from her a m4inature, painted I think, in Washington.

    Aunt Mattie should have been buried In Athens beside. her father, but there was no choice, she directed where she should be buried, in her will.

     

    ELIZABETH WALKER LUMPKIN

     

    In a letter addressed to Mrs. Lucy Hopson Lumpkin Pope, (his daughter) Gov. Wilson Lumpkin says, "You are apprised that your mother's maiden name was Elizabeth Walker." She was born in Wilkes County, Ga., April 19, 1786. Her father was Rev. Sanders Walker, a Baptist Minister of highly respectable standing. He passed through a life of extensive usefulness for upwards of three score years and with a spotless and unblemished character. He never said to the naked, "Be ye clothed," or to the hungry,, "Be ye fed," without lending a helping hand to their necessities.

    Your grandmother's maiden name was Sarah Lamar She married first a Mr. Cin(luefield, by whom she had an only daughter, after a few years of widowhood she married your grandfather Walker, in very many respects, she was the most perfect Scripture model of a woman that I have ever known.

     

    FROM LETTER OF MRS. E. B. SPALDING

     

    I have just, read a sketch of Grandpa Lumpkin's early life, relating much to his father, John Lumpkiii, written by himself. He says: "My parents had ten sons and one daughter. Eight of the ten sons, as well as the daughter, lived to form matrimonial connections and rear familie& I vm the second son and called after the husband of my father'g only sister, Col. John Wilson of Virginia, her was Mary, named for her mother. The extract is taken from his manuscript volume, now the property of the @ aenne family. Mr. DeRenne bought the mss from Aunt Mattie, and stored them in his Historical Library of Georgia, at Wormsloe, his home, near Savannah.

    22

     

    In writing for information about Aunt Mart@'s fadly, it might be well to call her, Aunt Patsy, as -Well as I refer to Aunt Martha Calloway.

    I will send the Barrow record book to you@soon. some changes one of these is the date of my brothees tion as Chancellor of the State University, which -,was' 1906. Walter B. Hill died Dec, 28, 1905, brother Da@ elected at the next Commencement.

    Brother has placed a monument over Gov. Lu

    grave. I saw it when in Athens two years ago. It is @a

    handsome and enduring memorial of granite.

    I am sending y,,)-a the long looked for list of John -am Lucy Hopson Lumpkin's teii sons. Thomas Jefferson have beep the eighth one who married, since Rob6rt,and Neville died young.

    I thank you for the Callowav record; I remember the Shelton,Olivers; the home place was. eight miles from Lexingto-h. The Olivers lived nearer Lexington in the old home of Wm. H. Crawford; they were people of means and held themselves very high.

     

    Now about the Camak family at Athens. The two sons of the late Mrs. James Camak, Sr., Louis and James, live in the beautiful old Camak home. I wished to get a picture of theplace to send you. The house was built and the place beautified by Dr. James Camak's father, who'came originally from Milledgeville. AU the family have pa@ away but these two young men and Jamie's little son. Jamie@s wife was Miss Smythe of Augusta. The little boy lives with his grandmother Smythe, but she brings him up on occasional visits to his father.

     

    While in Athens, I inquired about the graves of Chief Justice Lumpkin and his wife. They are buried near the big central monument, but no small stones mark their grav@ and their names are not on the big monument.

    A daughter of Jacob Lumpkin (1644-1708) is said to have married a Braxton, of the Carter Braxton family, who was one of the "signers" for Virginia.

    I would like to read the letter of Mrs. Lewis Walker, of Milton, N. C., great grandaughter of Col. John Wilson of Virginia: @ How did you get in touch with her 7"

    My nephew thinks Grandpa Wilson Lumpkin gave the, for the Athen's Cemetery. but says @ the facts- van be ascertained through brother lbavidi, who is Ch at the-Trustees of the Oconee Cemetery.

    That was a fine tribute to g by Mr. Me ,U@@ You, doubtl@ know of,Samuel Olive who was President. of the State Senate. He. ia, a d@endant of Smuel: Lump@@-,s* gf Tohn Lumpkin, and nephew of Smitel Lumpkin,@ out at.

    the te justices of the Supremp Court of

    mother, Mr& Lucy Lumpkin Olive, lives

    A@* Ga.

     

    Tht p@ge containing "the book, '"His@ and Ant4"Mie, of - Kilkenny",@ and the Coat of Arms 'of the

    Archdeacon family received,; and I can@ e MY RPPI* tit,tiolk" to you of same @ I will copy from the book ' 'and will ha*e -a COPY made of t@e beautiful "Arms". It is an aniciefit the!, dating -back many centuries. It's hiid:ng no motto, t ift'tdd, indicates one of the oldest; and some of the tuS49nia indicating a Crusader.

    I '- -@fta Lumpkin's Plitifttation, or rather, what was left 6f'lt, was sold by Aunt Mattie to the University of Georgia, ond it forms part of the campus extension. The A@cultu@'Deoartment is situated there. @ 'Me large building which is @ for the Forestry Depa tjient, was built - almost k@nst his- stone house. ' 'Mere is some talk of @g the Old home, what a shame it would be.

    Grandpas house faced the opposite direction from tho '@etery. 'Me driveway, nearly one fourth of a mile In k ngth I should say, ran down to Lumpkin Street, one of the pn@cipat streets of Athens, -vvhich runs almost the e@ tire length of the city. One entered a gate from Lunlpkin @t and drove along until at the end was a second gate, and tlhere among the cedars was the houm The driveway divided here, continuing right and left, and in front of the h@se were flower beds and shrubbery. It was so dignified and simple as to be very impressive. I remember that at the left of the steps there was a bed of Valley Lillies.

     

    I The older part of what is known as "Oconee Cemetery" ;was part of Gov. Lumpkin's Plantation, then being just outside the city limits, and along the Oconee river. Additional land was afterward acquired on t -be opposite side of the, river, which is here spanned by a bridge, making the n,e* 'part accessable. The land is extremely rugged and hilly on both sides of the stream, though picturesque, the location ideal for a cemetery.

    P7assing through the gate at the front entrance, the driveway continues straight ahead for a short disunce," then diverging to the right and left, encircles the hill .. .;Upon the crest of this hill he reserved a large circular lot to be used as a family burial place. While retaining its circular contour, the size of the lot seems to have greatly curtailed, thus destroying his original plan. @, @Standing in this lot and facing the entranee, to the left thebill'falls to a small running stream; on the,other order of which another hill rises high and steep. On the top of this hill, @is stone residence is situated.

    Do you notice that George Lumpkin, first, willed &H of his personal property to his grandson William? This conftrtns the record that William was the eldest son of John Lumpkin, second. Mrs. Green of St. Louis is a descendant of William Lumpkin. Did I send you her address? Mrs. Male and Mm. Green are both prominent in the D. A. R.

     

    You express surprise that no one has recently visited the grave on Mattapony River to confirm the commonly ace*ted statement that the name as there inscribed is Jacob L=@; this, Mrs. Hale of St. Louis did (decendant of Jack Ltimpkin) and wrote me of her trip. She gave the inscription on the tomb and sent a picture of the church.Besides this I have a copy of Bagby's "History of King and Queen' who,gives the full Latin Epitaph and the name as Jacob.

     

    nine is not,& shadow of doubt as to Jacob Lumpkin havwg @ the progenitor of the Georgia family, that is the defendants of George and John Lumpkin. and the intervewn Igeneration between Jacob and George having -beRA Dx.

    FROM LETTER OF MRS. E. B, SPALDING WHILE.

    AT ATHENS, GA., 1922.

    I@ think it is well that you will write the- Cody article for Mrs. Peel's forthcoming book, for you know it ' and your writing is clear and concise. I am glad she asked- yott to do this, and very glad that she will give you credit fotl "me.

    Brother David has had Uncle Sw=y's remaintplaced beside his father's grave in the Athen'is Cemetery.

    As soon as I have opportunity, will get the inscription and send it to you; also some more information about the lot.

    I am enclosing some ex-tracts from Gov.; Lumpkin',s. book, 'Removal of the Cherokees" from which you will see it was not his father, John Lumpkin, but himself, who -waA a member of Congress in 1804, and Commissioner of the Cherokees.

    Mrs. William Green resides in St. Louis. Mrs. girns informed me that she is a very lovely woman, and quite prominent in D. A. R. circles. Her husband is in some way connected with the "Missouri" or "St. Louis" school for tht blind, perhaps President. Mrs. Hale may be able to give you her address.

    According to the John Wilson record as given by Mrs. Lewis Walker, of Milton, N. C.; Mary Lumpkin -was born 1749, died 1927, at 78 years of age. So George Lum ,pkin, her father, must have been born not later 'than t730, and she his first born. George received a Land Grant in Amella County, south side og Appomattox River, Sept. 20, 1748. That may have been the year of his marriage.

    Gov. Lumpkin says his grandfathe.- had a large number of children born, but reared only four. John Lumpkin must have been one of the younger, as his wife was born May 17, 1764 (church record) and he in 1762.

    Gov. Lumpkin was President of the Board of '*ustees of "w University of Georgia at the time of his death. @ I' think he esteemed his service on that board for so many, years, one of the highest honors of his life. His inemorandum book is now the property of E. K. Lurnpkin, of Athens, Ga., who is a grandson of Judge Joseph Henry Luinpkin, and he alm has the bust that 'was made while Gov. Luzipkin vm a member of the United States Senate.

    I have visited the tomb of Jacob Lumpkin at;@ the old church on the Mattapony River in Virgin!&, :The i@tion is In Latin, but there is no @ horses head ou it, nor has there ever been one.

    I had some pictures made of it, one of -which I sent to. Mrs. Peel; one with myself standing beside it, my hand resting on the rail; I also sent her a picture of the old church. I think Dr. Thomas Lumpkin of King and Queei& County, must have been the father of Geo. Lumpkin an& others. Somewhere, I have a lawsuit against Dr. Thomas @mpkin by a patient.

    I have gone over these matters with Mr. Lyon G. Tyler and others in Virginia. This gentleman was instrumental in restoring the tomb. He said the tracing was the orig. inai. It is a very large slab, lying flat. The Virginia Society has put a nice iron railing around it.

    I have Stokes and Strong Wills. The Strongs go back to 17.,-j5 in Hanover County, Virginia. My father was born near Athens, Ga. His graiidfather's will is that of a gentleman, and most beautifully worded.

    The records show that James Cody resided on the CaCapon river, in Virginia. It was decided at a term of court, to build a good road to the Cody place. "Cody's Castle" is also mentioned. (from Cartnell's Historv of Virginia).

    The following is from James H. Medley, Clerk of Court, Halifax County, Virginia, July 8,1919:

    1 find from the records that George Lumpkin of the Province of North Carolina, and Mary Lumpkin, his wife, conveyed land in this county. He had grants to land in this county in 1761. He bought a number of grants in this county that had been taken out by others in 1756.

    Mrs Thomas Sloan (nee Anna Lumpkin) of Arkadelphia,, Ark., is a decendant of Jonathan Ragan. I have a copy of his will, dated April 6, 1813, Oglethorpe County' Ga.; She is also a lineal decendant of William Lumpkin, elded brother of Gov. Wilson Lumpkin.

    Work For D. A. R.

    Next to her family, Mrs. Peel's int&ats *eke MidW toncerned with the progress of the Joseph Ha@ham Chapter of the Daughters of the AmericAn RevoWleii.

    This Chapter was founded years ago at a m"W* Id her borne and she was one of the org7m&l members.

    Among other titles she held in the work of the D. A. R. *-er4, Honorary Life Regent of the Habershaht 'Chii@. Ex-Regent of the state organization, and ex-vic6 @fdOM ktneral of the National Association.

    It was through her efforts that Georgia today obs Georgia Product's day once a year, this affair beiiisr iitag6d ht the Atiditorium- Armory, under the auspieces of ffttl*f&sham Chapter. Through the establishment of sttth a dinner, Georgia products have been brought prominently to the front, and a larger market created for them in this and other States.

    Her Work for Home

    Years ago she conceived the idea of building a home for ti't Rabersham Chapter. She sponsored numerous 2,nter @inmer.ts to raise funds for this purpose, and her work was finally crowned with success. The home was cr@ at the corner of Piedmont Avenue and Fifteenth str@ and -,tands there today as a monument to her energy and her influence in the ranks of her organization.

    Members of the Chapter stated early Saturady morning when information of her death was announced, that they had intended to obtain the next State Convention ot the D. A. R. for Atlanta, the meeting to be held at the Chapter House largely as a tribute to Mrs. Peel, and that iik all probability the plan would be carried through, even though the guiding spirit of the enterprise will not be @ to take part in the proceedings of the o-rganimtion she loved so well in her life.

    Work In Other Lines.

    Although her work for the D. A. R. was her greatest love, the interest of no woman in Georgia covered so *,ide a variety of subjects.

    Her'contributations to the editorial columns of 'the emstituti,on on many subjects have been read with the deepest of interest. She wrote on timely subjects of the day, and in many cases her articles resulted in steps of benefit to &e city.

    Ever since the time that Atlanta first Opera, she has been one of the leaders in rc of the big @l events of the season.

    Entertainments given by Col. and Mr& Peel al@ were features of the week.

    War Time Efforts.

    When America entered the war on the side id the

    29

     

    Allies, she was named 'President of the Atlanta chapter of the National League for Women's Service, and did valuable work in this connection.

    &on, however, she resigned this post in order to do service entailing a greater cost,, through, the Habersham Chapter. She gave numerous entertainments to raise funds for the boys and sponsored social affairs for them.

    Mrs. Peels last illness began last November, Several times during the last month she had oinking spells- whe her death was considered only a matter of hours. Her remarkable recuperative powers proved astonishing to her Doctors. Until the end she kept up her interest in her family and in affairs of organizations dear to her. Friday, it was apparant that her end was not far off, and death came ,about midnight.

     

    A REMARKABLE WOMAN.

    (Lucy Cook Peel)

     

    From The Atlanta Journal Feb. 1923.

    The death of Mrs. William Lawson Peel, takes awav one of Georgia's most remarkable women.

    For nearly a half et-@iitury she has been an active factor in the social and civic life not only in Atlanta, but of the State.

    She was in every way a most remarkable w'omam Posessing indomitable energy, she was ever ready to throw the tremendous driving force.. of her personality back of any movement in which she was interested. Her will and determination thrust aside all obstacles standing in the way of the end sought. She made up her mind what she wanted to do, outlined her program and did it, and her achievements were such as to often surprise the public in completing undertakings that seemed impossible of fulfillment.

    Her life was a direct illustration of the truth of the adage, "Where there is a will, there is a way."

    Mrs. Peel was a born leader of men as well as women. Anyone coming under the influence of her personality was omyed by it. She led by the power of th driving force of her energy. No more remarkable woman has lived in Georgia since the War between the States.

    Her counsel will be missed in all the affairs in which she was interested and the scope of her activities led into all branches of civic, church and social life.

    Ile sympathies of the whole State will be extended to her noble husband, Col. W. L. Peel, long one of Atlanta's leading citizens,. and to her three daughters, all Of Whom are active factors in the activities of the communities in which they live, and all inheriting the@)s@did@ qtwities of their parents.

    Mrs. Peel is grandniece of Gov. Wilson Lumpkin, and daughter of Gen. Phil Cook of the Confederate Army.

     

    so

     

     

    Her brother, Phillip R. Cook, held the position of retary of Staie for I many years after his father's death(. She is granddaughter of Henry Hopson Lumpkin.

    LUCY COBB

     

    Was the eldest daughter of Gen. T. R. R. Cobb and his wife Marion McHenry Lumpkin and named for her mothex's sister, Mr.%. Lucy Gerdine.

    She was born 1844 at Lexington, Ga., the home of her grandfather, Judge Joseph Henry Lumpkin, and died at the tend6r age of thirteen years.

    Lucy was a child with rare and unusual gifts. She inherited a fine personality, and coupled with this, her refined and unselfish nature, endeared her to , all with wbom she became associated.

     

    She passed from the stage of existence in 1857; rdoumed and'lamented by the family as well as a host of friends, as, " a rose, a budding rose, blasted before its bloom".

    When the City of Athens planned to build a female college and the name for same was being discussed; it was suggested and carried that in commemoration of Gen. Cobb's little dauk@. the college be know , n as "Ludy Cobb Institute". Many of Georgia's brightest women have been educated at this sebool and.where fo@, they take pride in alluding to this fact.

    Excerpts from Letters of Mrs. Lewis Walker of Milton, North Carolina.

    Dear Mr Cody,

     

    The information that I, send you.relating to Col. John Wilson of Virginia, who married Mary Lumpkin, only

     

    daughter of Geo. Lumpkin and his wife, Mary Cody, is correct, most of it having been copied from the Bible of Col. Wilson by his g-randdaughter,Mrs. Agnes McGill. Mrs. Compton was in error as to the'date of Mary Cody's birth. I have le @ened out the record of some families in whom I thought you might be interested.

    Mrs. A. A. James. Sr., was Annie Wilson, and the owner of "'D@8 Hill". Her address @ Danville, Virginia. Sh might give you:some items of interest. I wrote, to a cousin for some of the enclosed information. She had the C-lork at Chathari4 to copy from the records for her. It is'sh6wn

    tereat to Cousin Lucy Peel, you might give them to @her.

    The extract from "RemGvhl of the Cherokees" is taken

    hm portions of Gov. Lumpkin's two M S 8 Volumes which Mr. DWenne bought from- Aunt Mattie. His father @ dw @rical Library relating to Georgia, and he wnti@ lfi. @ or twice they have published books from @a@pt; not for sale but for private circulation. MY b@ had & copy that Mr. DeRenne gave him, frm, which, I copied is aN relating to the family in general.: In r he'tells of his life, his first public serviesI @had the Manuscript Volurm in hand a year or a* 4m, through my nephew Craig, found "House Building" aad @ it. We have Mr. DeRenne's permission to publish it Did you ever write to Mrs. GTeen? @in@ Mirism @ "mires her so very much; so did Mrs. Sims who knew thern both, became friends while Mrs. Sims was livings in St. Louis. Mrs. Sims is related to me through both Pop." and MM.

    Do you notice that George Lumpkin, first, willed &H of his personal property to his grandson William? This conftrtns the record that William was the eldest son of John Lumpkin, second. Mrs. Green of St. Louis is a descendant of William Lumpkin. Did I send you her address? Mrs. Male and Mm. Green are both prominent in the D. A. R.

     

    You express surprise that no one has recently visited the grave on Mattapony River to confirm the commonly ace*ted statement that the name as there inscribed is Jacob L=@; this, Mrs. Hale of St. Louis did (decendant of Jack Ltimpkin) and wrote me of her trip. She gave the inscription on the tomb and sent a picture of the church.Besides this I have a copy of Bagby's "History of King and Queen' who,gives the full Latin Epitaph and the name as Jacob.

     

    nine is not,& shadow of doubt as to Jacob Lumpkin havwg @ the progenitor of the Georgia family, that is the defendants of George and John Lumpkin. and the intervewn Igeneration between Jacob and George having -beRA Dx. Aom" Lumpkin. Grandpa Wilson Lumpkitx have had this information. You recall that be state memoranda bad been lost, and that he might be incorrzct as to dates etc., but that we are descendants of the individual buried at the church on the Mattapony River.

    ,'A,Pat Patsy" as mentioned is Martha Lumpkin Waway, the only daughter of John and Lucy Hopson Lumpkin. Tlxey lived in Wilkes County at their plantation home, in quke at handsome brick house. They had a summer home in -@mbe -County, North Carolina, and sometimes made @ho -there, riding across the country in their ca -m'@ @ndnia Pope told me about them and she was 6@ys @en of as, "Aunt Patsy" which you know is a diminutive of "Mwths."

    FROM LETTER OF MRS. E. B, SPALDING WHILE.

    AT ATHENS, GA., 1922.

    I@ think it is well that you will write the- Cody article for Mrs. Peel's forthcoming book, for you know it ' and your writing is clear and concise. I am glad she asked- yott to do this, and very glad that she will give you credit fotl "me.

    Brother David has had Uncle Sw=y's remaintplaced beside his father's grave in the Athen'is Cemetery.

    As soon as I have opportunity, will get the inscription and send it to you; also some more information about the lot.

    I am enclosing some ex-tracts from Gov.; Lumpkin',s. book, 'Removal of the Cherokees" from which you will see it was not his father, John Lumpkin, but himself, who -waA a member of Congress in 1804, and Commissioner of the Cherokees.

    Mrs. William Green resides in St. Louis. Mrs. girns informed me that she is a very lovely woman, and quite prominent in D. A. R. circles. Her husband is in some way connected with the "Missouri" or "St. Louis" school for tht blind, perhaps President. Mrs. Hale may be able to give you her address.

    According to the John Wilson record as given by Mrs. Lewis Walker, of Milton, N. C.; Mary Lumpkin -was born 1749, died 1927, at 78 years of age. So George Lum ,pkin, her father, must have been born not later 'than t730, and she his first born. George received a Land Grant in Amella County, south side og Appomattox River, Sept. 20, 1748. That may have been the year of his marriage.

    Gov. Lumpkin says his grandfathe.- had a large number of children born, but reared only four. John Lumpkin must have been one of the younger, as his wife was born May 17, 1764 (church record) and he in 1762.

    Gov. Lumpkin was President of the Board of '*ustees of "w University of Georgia at the time of his death. @ I' think he esteemed his service on that board for so many, years, one of the highest honors of his life. His inemorandum book is now the property of E. K. Lurnpkin, of Athens, Ga., who is a grandson of Judge Joseph Henry Luinpkin, and he alm has the bust that 'was made while Gov. Luzipkin vm a member of the United States Senate.

    'PLACE, gT. LOUIS, Mo..

     

    In -the year 1690, Jacob Lumpkin W98 granted landfor imv"ting eleven Whites and three Negroes to Vireinis. I haa record. of another zrant,' and importation by hfm, -but have mislaid it; Ifeei, s@re some of these were. of his familv. I am a direct d a of David Stokes and his wif4, ecend at

    Sarah Montfort, of Virginia and Carolina. 'William Stokei-I.

    MY great grandfather lived in Wilkes - C*uuty, Ga. I am named.for William Stoke's datigbter,@who was@ the,@wife of Wffliwn Strong, of Virginia' a soldier of the @olution; my @er was daughter of, Jack Lumpkin, (son of John Lu@ kin) Mary Ann Susan Lumpkin, (Mrs. 4 Madison Strong).

    I have visited the tomb of Jacob Lumpkin at;@ the old church on the Mattapony River in Virgin!&, :The i@tion is In Latin, but there is no @ horses head ou it, nor has there ever been one.

    I had some pictures made of it, one of -which I sent to. Mrs. Peel; one with myself standing beside it, my hand resting on the rail; I also sent her a picture of the old church. I think Dr. Thomas Lumpkin of King and Queei& County, must have been the father of Geo. Lumpkin an& others. Somewhere, I have a lawsuit against Dr. Thomas @mpkin by a patient.

    I have gone over these matters with Mr. Lyon G. Tyler and others in Virginia. This gentleman was instrumental in restoring the tomb. He said the tracing was the orig. inai. It is a very large slab, lying flat. The Virginia Society has put a nice iron railing around it.

    I have Stokes and Strong Wills. The Strongs go back to 17.,-j5 in Hanover County, Virginia. My father was born near Athens, Ga. His graiidfather's will is that of a gentleman, and most beautifully worded.

    The records show that James Cody resided on the CaCapon river, in Virginia. It was decided at a term of court, to build a good road to the Cody place. "Cody's Castle" is also mentioned. (from Cartnell's Historv of Virginia).

    The following is from James H. Medley, Clerk of Court, Halifax County, Virginia, July 8,1919:

    1 find from the records that George Lumpkin of the Province of North Carolina, and Mary Lumpkin, his wife, conveyed land in this county. He had grants to land in this county in 1761. He bought a number of grants in this county that had been taken out by others in 1756.

    Mrs Thomas Sloan (nee Anna Lumpkin) of Arkadelphia,, Ark., is a decendant of Jonathan Ragan. I have a copy of his will, dated April 6, 1813, Oglethorpe County' Ga.; She is also a lineal decendant of William Lumpkin, elded brother of Gov. Wilson Lumpkin.

    Work For D. A. R.

    Next to her family, Mrs. Peel's int&ats *eke MidW toncerned with the progress of the Joseph Ha@ham Chapter of the Daughters of the AmericAn RevoWleii.

    This Chapter was founded years ago at a m"W* Id her borne and she was one of the org7m&l members.

    Among other titles she held in the work of the D. A. R. *-er4, Honorary Life Regent of the Habershaht 'Chii@. Ex-Regent of the state organization, and ex-vic6 @fdOM ktneral of the National Association.

    It was through her efforts that Georgia today obs Georgia Product's day once a year, this affair beiiisr iitag6d ht the Atiditorium- Armory, under the auspieces of ffttl*f&sham Chapter. Through the establishment of sttth a dinner, Georgia products have been brought prominently to the front, and a larger market created for them in this and other States.

    Her Work for Home

    Years ago she conceived the idea of building a home for ti't Rabersham Chapter. She sponsored numerous 2,nter @inmer.ts to raise funds for this purpose, and her work was finally crowned with success. The home was cr@ at the corner of Piedmont Avenue and Fifteenth str@ and -,tands there today as a monument to her energy and her influence in the ranks of her organization.

    Members of the Chapter stated early Saturady morning when information of her death was announced, that they had intended to obtain the next State Convention ot the D. A. R. for Atlanta, the meeting to be held at the Chapter House largely as a tribute to Mrs. Peel, and that iik all probability the plan would be carried through, even though the guiding spirit of the enterprise will not be @ to take part in the proceedings of the o-rganimtion she loved so well in her life.

    Work In Other Lines.

    Although her work for the D. A. R. was her greatest love, the interest of no woman in Georgia covered so *,ide a variety of subjects.

    Her'contributations to the editorial columns of 'the emstituti,on on many subjects have been read with the deepest of interest. She wrote on timely subjects of the day, and in many cases her articles resulted in steps of benefit to &e city.

    Ever since the time that Atlanta first Opera, she has been one of the leaders in rc of the big @l events of the season.

    Entertainments given by Col. and Mr& Peel al@ were features of the week.

    War Time Efforts.

    When America entered the war on the side id the

    29

     

    Allies, she was named 'President of the Atlanta chapter of the National League for Women's Service, and did valuable work in this connection.

    &on, however, she resigned this post in order to do service entailing a greater cost,, through, the Habersham Chapter. She gave numerous entertainments to raise funds for the boys and sponsored social affairs for them.

    Mrs. Peels last illness began last November, Several times during the last month she had oinking spells- whe her death was considered only a matter of hours. Her remarkable recuperative powers proved astonishing to her Doctors. Until the end she kept up her interest in her family and in affairs of organizations dear to her. Friday, it was apparant that her end was not far off, and death came ,about midnight.

     

    A REMARKABLE WOMAN.

    (Lucy Cook Peel)

     

    From The Atlanta Journal Feb. 1923.

    The death of Mrs. William Lawson Peel, takes awav one of Georgia's most remarkable women.

    For nearly a half et-@iitury she has been an active factor in the social and civic life not only in Atlanta, but of the State.

    She was in every way a most remarkable w'omam Posessing indomitable energy, she was ever ready to throw the tremendous driving force.. of her personality back of any movement in which she was interested. Her will and determination thrust aside all obstacles standing in the way of the end sought. She made up her mind what she wanted to do, outlined her program and did it, and her achievements were such as to often surprise the public in completing undertakings that seemed impossible of fulfillment.

    Her life was a direct illustration of the truth of the adage, "Where there is a will, there is a way."

    Mrs. Peel was a born leader of men as well as women. Anyone coming under the influence of her personality was omyed by it. She led by the power of th driving force of her energy. No more remarkable woman has lived in Georgia since the War between the States.

    Her counsel will be missed in all the affairs in which she was interested and the scope of her activities led into all branches of civic, church and social life.

    Ile sympathies of the whole State will be extended to her noble husband, Col. W. L. Peel, long one of Atlanta's leading citizens,. and to her three daughters, all Of Whom are active factors in the activities of the communities in which they live, and all inheriting the@)s@did@ qtwities of their parents.

    Mrs. Peel is grandniece of Gov. Wilson Lumpkin, and daughter of Gen. Phil Cook of the Confederate Army.

     

    so

     

     

    Her brother, Phillip R. Cook, held the position of retary of Staie for I many years after his father's death(. She is granddaughter of Henry Hopson Lumpkin.
