    • "According to 'Old Tuskaloosa Land Office Records,' on September 5, 1822, a "Gravel" Lincecum of Monroe County, Mississippi was awarded land in Sec 26 T 16 R 17 W...The only other land granted to a Lincecum by the Tuscaloosa land office was given to "Grabel" Lincecum on December 11, 1822. That property was described as Sec 26 T 16 R 17 W in Monroe County."

    • The Rhode Island American and Providence Gazette, 14 November 1828:
      Burrell Jones, of Little Rock (Arkansas) was called to his door, the 23d ult, by two of his neighbors, who pretended to be travellers, and while Jones was gathering some wood to kindle a fire, the villains shot him through the body. -- The unfortunate man died the next day, having disclosed the names of his murderers, Dr. Charles C. P. Welsh and Gabrel Lincecum, who fled the following morning. Welsh and Jones had had a slight difference, a few days before the murder.

    • In the book, WHO WAS WHO AMONG THE SOUTHERN INDIANS 1698 - 1907, by Don Martini, published 1998 the following is given:
      LINCECUM, GRABEL - White resident among the Choctaw, was a brother to Gideon Lincecum. He was working Daniel Nail's farm one mile from the Choctaw Agency in Moshulatubbe District in 1831. His household consisting of 6 whites and 5 blacks. He made a declaration in Lowndes County, Mississippi on July 26, 1834. He made a will in Noxubee County on November 9, 1836, proven May 1, 1837, providing for his wife Wilmoth, and children named Travis Haywood, Bartley Case, Wilmoth M., Gulaana Amanda, and Grabel.

      From Historical Sketches of Oktibbeha County (Mississippi) by Thomas Battle Carroll, 1931 [via Ancestry, 2004]:
      Page 12 -- "The white population gradually increased. I do not know the names of some who settled here during the decade ending in 1820...I am almost sure that Grabel Lincecum was here in 1830..."
      Page 17 -- "Naturally the pioneers and the newcomers settled on the good lands easily accessible to the roads. The earliest arrivals, with few exceptions, came through Columbus, and making their way over the Robinson Road to the southeastern part of the county established themselves there. Among these were Grabel Lincecum and John G. Skinner..."
      Page 22 -- "Many of the tribe did not remove within the three years. Sometimes trouble arose between an individual Indian and an individual white man. In 1830, near the turnpike in southeast Oktibbeha, Grabel Lincecum in a personal altercation killed a Choctaw. The act was probably justifiable, or at least excusable, under the white man's law, but not under the Indian's, which in case of homicide admitted no legal defense, requiring that he who had killed another, no matter what the circumstance, accidental or intentional, should forfeit his own life. Lincecum thought it prudent to leave. Accordingly, with his wife, his seven-year-old son, and their baby in the mother's arms, he journeyed to Arkansas, following Indian trails. Later, having made a settlement satisfactory to the Indians, he returned with his family to this county. To and from Arkansas, the family journeyed on horseback; Lincecum taking his son behind him on one horse; the wife, carrying the baby in her arms, on another. What hardihood had the women and children of Oktibbeha a hundred years ago!

      From Judy Jacobson's Alabama & Mississippi Connections:
      Sometime between 1826 and 1832, he [Grabel] had built a bridge on the Robinson or Military Road across the Noxubee River on land he had purchased from Daniel Nail in the southern portion of Oktibbeha County...

      The first toll bridge in the Choctaw Nation had an iron super-structure and wood plank flooring. When he first built it, Grabrel [sic] paid $500 for it. He sold it for $1,000, bought it again for $5,000, and finally, resold it for $20,000...

      He also owned a mill on the Noxubee River that, after Grabrel's [sic] 1836 death, continued to be owned by members of the family. His will appeared in Noxubee County's Book A and was dated November 9, 1836. It was probated on May 1, 1837, so his death took place between those dates.

      Grabel became a member of the first board of police (supervisors) of Oktibbeha County, Mississippi. [Source: Alabama and Mississippi Connections: Historical and Biographical Sketches of Families Who Settled on Both Sides of the Tombigbee River by Judy Jacobson]
