Does anyone really know the true dates and location of Hendrick Jordan Lumpkin's pioneering journey from Georgia to Mississippi?
Although S.G. Thigpen gives a wonderful account in "Next Door to Heaven" that he travelled directly to the Sone's Chapel area of PR County in 1824 and was an original settler of the area, this does not agree with the 1820 census record showing he was originally in Pike County.
Thigpen also say that his eldest son was Augustus and that William was not born before leaving Georgia.All other information indicates that William was the eldest born in 1821 and did make the trip.
Any documented information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
