Hi Dan, did not get to the post office Friday.When you do receive my mailing, you will note that Robert,Drusilla, George, Harrison, Polly, John, Walter and Ann Lumpkin are all in Baldwin Co. GA formerly known as Randolph Co. and then in Jasper Co. which was formed from Baldwin Co. Records show that Robert and D. Lumpkin were there as early as 1809 and Drusilla is still there in 1827. Early Lumpkin researchers have that Harrison Lumpkin was the son of Drusilla Hendrick and Robert Lumpkin who is purported to be the son of Mary Code and George Lumpkin.I have never seen the proof of this and hopefully this was from somebody who had a family record in the early 1900's.
Based on the premise that Harrison was the son of Drusilla Hendric and Robert Lumpkin then it appears that the Lumpkins in Baldwin and later Jasper Co. GA is this family.
Elizabeth Forrest and Robert Lumpkin born 25 November 1756, according to the Bible records of the grandson Anderson Lumpkin, moved to Tennessee where their last three children were born and several married there.Then Elizabeth and Robert moved to Indiana to be with one of their sons who had moved there in about 1830.This certainly appears that the two Roberts were not the same person.
We have two unknown Robert Lumpkins - one who had land surveyed in Halifax Co. VA at the same time George Lumpkin did and this cannot be his son as he would not have been old enough to have land surveyed.Then then there is the Robert Lumpkin whom Katherine Du Pre Lumpkin wrote about in her "The Making of the Southern" in 1947: In her first chapter she identifies herself as a great granddaughter of William Lumpkin who had 21 children.William was the son of Joseph Lumpkin about whom Governor Wilson Lumpkin wrote. On page six , Kathrine wrote, in part:"Just a year before Georgia gave Eli Whitney his patent and thus launched the era of great prosperity for the cotton planter, Joseph Lumpkin moved from Virginia to Oglethorpe County,there to join his brothers George and Robert, who had preceded him by ten years..."
Governor Wilson Lumpkin never mentioned a great uncle named Robert in Georgia.Lumpkin researchers have alleged that the Robert who was there with George, was the son of Mary Cody and Captain George Lumpkin. Dan, I am sure there are more Roberts and George Lumpkins about whom we don't know.
And it is so frustrating that no Bible records seem to exist for the children of Mary Cody and George Lumpkin except for their daughter who married Wilson.One of my best friends here is a descendant of them.
