Carl WRIGHT
CARL STEPHEN WRIGHT Carl Stephen Wright's star fell from the sky August 11, 2005. He is at last at peace with his universe and its demons which awed, perplexed, and amazed him. A man of few words, but with an amazing and charming persona. He could light up a room with just a smile or just being there. All who he touched loved him as passionately as he loved them. Never content with the middle of the road he lived life to the tune of his own drummer. The whole of him was far greater than the sum of his parts. Carl was born December 22,1977, part Rambo, part Jeremiah Johnson, part James Dean, all rolled into one. A truly beautiful man, who loved sports and the outdoors. Hunting was his passion and he was a self-taught marksman able to shoot moving targets with a pistol. No mountain was too hard to climb and no hike too long. He knew no fear. We are all better people because we had the privilege to know him. Words can never convey how much he will be missed. Carl Stephen is survived by his mother, Nan Evans Vogler; his father, Carl William Wright; stepparents, Michele Wright, Lonnie Vogler, Becky Wright; sisters, Kathryn Wright Brennan, Emma Parker; brothers, Preston Wright, Zach Vogler, Luke Vogler, Zachary Parker, Logan Davidenko, Mason Davidenko; and brother-in-law, Alex Brennan; grandmothers, Kathryn Wright and Nancy Hull Evans; uncles and aunts, and cousins by the score and his loyal dog, Abby. He will always be our hero. Rest in Peace L.C., you fought a good fight. Visitation will be Sunday, August 14 at A.S. Turner & Sons 3pm-6pm with a Rosary/Prayer service said by Monsignor Richard Lopez. A memorial mass will be held at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 2855 Briarcliff Rd on Monday, August 15 at 10am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Carl Stephen Wright Memorial Fund, in care of Piedmont Bank of Georgia, 3423 Piedmont Road, Suite 100, Atlanta, GA 30305. Proceeds to benefit young boys. A. S. Turner & Sons

13 Cornelia Norris McKimmon Trott was honored in 2014 by induction into the Raleigh, NC Hall of Fame. Following is the biographical sketch citing her achievements:

Cornelia Norris McKimmon Trott

After deciding a teaching career was not the career she desired, Cornelia Norris McKimmon Trott went to night school to become a lawyer in the 1930s. In 1938 she passed the bar and was one of only a handful of female lawyers in the state. She became the first woman lawyer to work in the Attorney General?s Office. In 1948, she left the Attorney General?s Office and became president of what would become Lawyers Title Insurance Company of North Carolina, Inc. In 1948, title insurance was in its infancy and by the time Cornelia retired in 1973; the company she helped run out of a Cameron Village office handled the majority of the title insurance business in the state and had expanded to Charlotte and Winston-Salem. In addition to being a role model in business, she was an active community member and avid sportswoman. One of the community roles she enjoyed most was providing legal counsel for the Junior League of Raleigh.

27 Family lore:

According to family lore, Richard Murrow and his wife had four children, all of whom died at one time. They had eleven more, and then his wife died, leaving him to rear the children. I have found no record of these first four children. (Vivienne Murrow's diary reports two children who died, much more realistic in the time frame.)

I have a reproduction of a long, low stool that was placed in front of the fire. My mother told me that her mother Florence and two older brothers used to kneel there for family prayers and see who could spit farthest into the fire.

Another story tells of one of the boys on the way home from school running into the Catholic church and putting mud in the holy water. When he found out about it, his father told him that, as soon as his next piano student left, he was going to cane him. Teacher and student, in duet, played a fortissimo chord and were rewarded with a terrible banging noise. When the father opened the piano to see what was wrong, hidden there was the cane he planned to use. Before caning the boy, the father told him to take off his pants. The boy did so, revealing another pair underneath. On taking those pants off, he finally got his punishment.

35 From "Annals of Athens" by Augustus Longstreet Hull:

Judge Lumpkin was a learned jurist and a finished scholar. He loved study, and was a great reader. His speeches, of which no record now remains, were full of pathos and the fire of eloquence, and his decisions while on the Supreme bench are models of clearness and elegant composition. A natural teacher, for many years he imparted instruction to the young men in his office and in the Lumpkin Law School, charming them alike by the elegance of his language and the thoroughness of his knowledge. He was a great temperance advocate, and his voice, always heard on the side of righteousness, was a power for good.

Judge Lumpkin was the first Chief Justice of Georgia. Chief Justice Bluckley said of him: "His literary power was in vocal utterance. In the spoken words he was a literary genius, far surpassing any other Georgian living or dead, I have ever known. Indeed, from no other mortal lips have I heard such harmonies and sweet sounding sentences as came from his. Those who never saw and heard him cannot be made to realize what a great master he was."

***

From "The Record of My Ancestry" by A. L. Hull:

Joseph Henry Lumpkin was born in Lexington, VA. Entered the U. of Ga. but on suspension of the college went to Princeton where he graduated with second honor in 1819. After studying law he was elected to the Legislature at 25 years of age. After a successful practice of law, he was elected the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia upon its organization in 1845 and held the office until his death. Judge Lumpkin was a great lawyer but a greater judge. As an orator he had few equals, and his defense of Young Harris charged with murder acquitting him in the face of universal prejudice against him was one of the greatest triumphs of his life. He was a ruling elder in the Presbyterian Church. Paralysis was the cause of his death. He organized the Phi Kappa Debating Society at the University of Georgia.

36 From "Descendants of Jacob Lumpkin":

George Lumpkin was a Captain of Virginia troops in the American Revolutionary War. Because of this Harry Lumpkin joined "The Empire State Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (Nation number 53538, State number 5544) on October 5, 1934. Cora Wilma (Thomas) Hutchinson joined the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution. It is from these two applications that I received much information. I received the forms from Kimmel (Thomas) Durbin.--SJT.

On both Harry's and Cora's applications it is stated that George's services in the war were: "According to H.J. Eckenrode's list of revolutionary soldiers of Virginia in the Special Report of the Department of Archives and History for 1911, Part I, page 278: George Lumpkin was Captin as shown by the Auditor's Account Book for 1779, page 214."
 
Lumpkin, George (I1723)
 
37 From "Descendants of Jacob Lumpkin":

Lumpkin's home "Newington" in King & Queen Co., St. Stephens Parish, VA, on the Mattaponi River was the original home of the Lumpkin Family. It contained about 1,000 acres. In 1704 the Virginia Quit-Rent Rolls of King and Queen County contained the name of Jacob Lumpkin, and credited him with 950 acres at that time. He died 14, Sept 1708 at "Newington", King and Queen County, Virginia. Lower St. Stephen Church, now Mattaponi Baptist Church. Near the north door of the "Mattapony Church" lies a marble slab inscribed:

JACOB LUMPKIN
Obit 14 die September 1708, Aetatis 64
Dux Militum, Victor Hostium
Morte Victus. Pax adsit, vives requias
Eterna Sepultis.

Translated this reads: "A leader of soldiers; Conqueror of the enemy; Conquered by death. May peace be with him; you shall live. eternal rest for the buried."
