  Creator:   Lumpkin, Joseph Henry, 1799-1867  
  Dates:   1780-1903  
The collection consists of the papers of Joseph Henry Lumpkin and the Lumpkin family of Athens, Georgia from 1780-1903. Includes correspondence, bills, a diary, indentures, lands grants, legal documents, and maps. The bulk of the correspondence is to Joseph Henry Lumpkin (1820-1856) discussing politics, the 1840 presidential election, the Wilmont Proviso (dealing with slavery), legal cases, law practice, and Lumpkin's appointments. Major correspondents include John MacPherson Berrien, Howell Cobb, Ebenezer Staines, and Hiram Warner. The diary was written by Mary B. Thomas, a school girl in Forsyth, Georgia, who later married Edwin King Lumpkin. Written from June - August 1873, Thomas describes her friends, school, social and family life. The collection also contains bills, receipts, and correspondence relating to Colonel Thomas Carr, an ancestor of Lumpkin. The correspondence (1773-1837) describes the Louisiana territory, Saint Louis (Mo.), the War of 1812, politics, and family news.
