Dear Carol,

You and I corresponded through e-mail a couple of weeks ago, when I wrote in mention of my struggles over finding the parents of Patsy "Ginsey" Lumpkin who married John M. Adkins, son of Amos Adkins/Atkins (who fought in the REV WAR)from VA. Patsy or Ginsey (which must have been a nickname...at least assuming), was the daughter of Anne Lumpkin...and from what research I have so far found, possibly the daughter of William Lumpkin. In 1795, when Patsy and John M. Adkins were married, her mother Anne Lumpkin signed her surety. I have also found an Anne Lumpkin with a daughter Patsy, and this Anne's last name was COURTNEY. Does this ring a bell?

I just sent you an email this afternoon as you had said that you would send me a CD for all of your Lumpkin and Adkins/Atkins research. It has been a two or three weeks and I was afraid that I had misjudged what you were going to share with me.

Bless your heart...being 83 years old and still "going strong" with your research. I am 60 years old, a 2 cancer survivor and now riddled with arthritis. My traveling days are sadly at a standstill. I used to love to hop in the car and travel to Massachusetts, Conn., NY, VA or Missouri, chasing my ancestors. The golden years have not appeared and I am in a quandry as to just what happened to them. Somedays I fell 90 yrs. old.

When I saw your message here on GEN FORUM, which was written after you and I had shared several e-mails, I got nervous. You are just incredible and have such a vast reservoir of knowledge on the Lumpkin/Lumkin family.

I am hoping to hear from you really soon! Either through Gen Forum, post office, or email.

Thanks...Linda Siekman
