Son of Pricilla Barker and Joseph Lumpkins. Married to Evaline Rector on 18 Apr 1862 in Emporia, Lyon Co, KS.

The Emporia Gazette, 27 Apr 1909, Tue


George W. Lumpkins died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. C. E. Carle, 1019 Exchange street, last night at 10 o'clock of pneumonia, after a short sickness. The funeral services will be held at the First Christian church tomorrow at 2 o'clock, and will be conducted by Rev. W. A. Parker. Interment will be made in Maplewood.

George W. Lumpkins was a native of Kentucky and was born seventy-one years ago. He was an ante-bellum Kansan, coming here in the fifties and settling at Neosho Rapids. In July, 1862, when President Lincoln issued his first call for 300,000 volunteers, Mr. Lumpkins gave his services to his country and was one of the hundred men whom Preston B. Plumb recruited for Company C, Eleventh Kansas Cavalry. The company was mustered into service on September 10(?), 1862. Forty-seven years ago this company was lined up on Commercial street and the now famous silk flag, which is still preserved, was presented to them by the women of Emporia. The company which marched away with Mr. Lumpkins at that time has thinned and only a few remain, and from these the pall-bearers will be selected.

Mrs. Lumpkins died nine years ago last October. Mr. Lumpkins leaves five children: Mrs. Alice Brown, of Winona; Mrs. Eva Carle and George Lumpkins, of Emporia; William and Roy Lumpkins, of Kansas City, Mo. A brother, William, also survives him.
