My Mother’s Mother (my Grandmother) was Clara Helen Lumpkin and her Father was James Julius Lumpkin (nephew of JJ Lumpkin – the doctor in Meridian who also raised him). He lived in Meridian about 5 blocks from Uncle and Auntie and raised his three children Rueben, Miriam and Clara there with his wife, also named Clara. My Grandmother – Clara Helen Lumpkin died in 2008, but my cousin Adrian Lumpkin is still living very near my Mother (who remembers going to Meridian a lot to visit grandparents) in Austin, Texas.
I suggest if you are still looking for Lumpkin relatives, you call my Mother. Dr. Jan Conklin – her number is 979-777-2243 or 512-467-4422. I do not have cousin Adrian’s number, but she does. Adrian also grew up in Meridian.
