Lumpkin, John

Lumpkin, John a distinguished Baptist minister of Georgia, was born in Pittsylvania County, Virginia, November 4, 1785, but went, when a child, to Georgia, and was reared in Oglethorpe County, where he spent his whole life. Socially, his relations were of a high character. One of his brothers, Wilson Lumpkin, was governor of the state three years, and another brother, Joseph Henry, chief-justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia. His ordination took place in 1808, and his ministry was exercised in different parts of the county in which he lived. Three new churches were formed during his life, through his personal efforts. He died, greatly lamented, August 1, 1839. See Cathcart, Baptist Encyclop. page 724. (J.C.S.)
