Lumpkin County, located in the mid-northern portion of the state, was created on December 3, 1832. The county was named for former governor of Georgia Wilson Lumpkin. Lumpkin's daughter, Martha Atalanta Lumpkin Compton, was the source for the city name of Marthasville (which was the later named for Atlanta). The biographical sketches were submitted by the families themselves.
