In May of 1855 Susannah Lumpkins, Sarah McGraw and James Lumpkins had charges brought against them in Campbell County by the state of Tennessee for lewdness. The charges brought against Susannah Lumpkins indicate she was "being lewd" with Mr. John McGraw. William McGraw's father was named John, although I have no idea if he was the other party in this case. Sarah McGraw and James Lumpkins were charged with "lewdness" together. The parties were all ordered to pay a fine of two hundred and fifty dollars, voided on condition they make periodic appearances before the court.
Both families were in Cedar, Arkansas by 1870, the same year that William Jarrett McGraw died. Susan Lumpkins was apparently ill for many years prior to her death in 1884. Her widower married her sister (or cousin) in December of 1885, causing his children to stop speaking to him. They were said to have never visited him again, and he never saw any of his grandchildren.
