Death of Governor Lumpkin's wife
---On the night of the 4th inst., at the residence of Mr. John C. Lumpkin, a
mile from this place, his mother Mrs. Lumpkin, the wife of ex-Governor
Lumpkin, put aside the cares of this life and passed over to shining shore.
With the character and life of this noble and distinguished lady, are
blended memories sweet to many of our older citizens, who in days gone by
honored and loved her husband, who with so much ability filled the office of
governor. Those were days of official integrity, and had her husband while
he held the helm of state been guilty of that prodigality so characteristic
of some of our officials of later date, pageantry and show might have
surrounded her death and burial. So it was she passed quietly away, and
those who honored her living may with equal pride, honor her memory. (The
Daily Constitution, Atlanta, GA. March 23, 1876)
