I just found your reply to my message about Robert Lumpkin and Sarah Louise Hutcheson. I hope you are still monitoring the list. This does sound like it could be the link I am looking for. Do you have a birth date for Robert Lumpkin? This does look very much like it could be the link between the families that I have been looking for. Sarah was only 15 when she married Robert who was 20 years older, so it seems reasonable that her father knew Robert well to allow the marriage. I would be interested in any other information you can share about the families.
