History in a Pecan Shell

The settlement probably began in the late 1800s and was named for the Lumpkins family. James W. Lumpkins came to Ellis County in 1874, purchased land, and began farming in the area. A cotton gin in the community probably served local farmers, but by the 1930s Lumkins stopped appearing on highway maps. No population estimates were available until 1990 and 2000, when the community reported twenty residents.
