There is "a" T. J. Lumpkin listed in Virginia on this Civil War database, but of course I don't know if it is the same T. J. Lumpkin who is on the above 1880 census.
"If" he IS yourT. J., his wife Mary E. should have been receiving a widow's pension. There is a Mary E. Lumpkin on the database below, but I can't access the actual images.Hope you will be able to do so to determine if this is connected to your family or not.
Good luck with your research....Pauline
