    Notes 
    • Three sources give different information on the date and place of marriage.
    • From J. Stratton Hicky:

      Because James Hall McHenry, Sr. and Marion Greer (sic) Grieve McHenry both died when their two surviving boys were very young, Callender and Joseph Henry Lumpkin apparently took the boys in and raised them. I've been told that both John Grieve McHenry and his brother, James Hall McHenry, Jr., graduated from Princeton (we have paperwork showing this) due to Mr. Lumpkin paying for their college education. So, they were almost like sons to Callender and Joseph Lumpkin.

    Lumpkin-Cobb-Gerdine Monument
    On each side of the monument, members of the Lumpkin, Cobb, and Gerdine families buried there are listed. Since there are no separate gravestones, it is believed that there is an underground vault that holds the remains. It would have been opened for each burial and then reclosed. No evidence of the vault is apparent.
