I hope you don't mind my reading over your shoulders.I am attempting to help a lady join DAR through her Lumpkin line.
She had originally sent in paperwork that indicated she descended from Robert Lumpkin b 11-25-1756 and his wife Elizabeth Forest b 11-25-1776, through George Lumpkin b abt 1823 VA (died Wilkes Co, GA 9-9-1800) and his wife Mary Cody 1729-1800, but the paperwork was returned as there seemed to be a problem with that relationship or the incorrect parentage to Robert Lumpkin.
I am just getting my feet wet with her Lumpkin research and certainly would appreciate any and all help you can give me.
From what I am reading over your shoulders, it appears as though there were 2 separate George Lumpkins, one being the father of Robert Lumpkin, and one that is not the father of Robert.My guess, without having had the chance yet to review documentation that has been submitted to DAR, is that the wrong George Lumpkin was selected.
Do you know where "the other" George Lumpkin may have deceased? Did he stay in Virginia?
If you have anything that would help me to help her, I would greatly appreciate it.I will gladly repay you for your costs, etc.
