  • Notes 
    • - There is a male "L. C. Lincecum" (age 1, b. TX) in the 1870 census for Washington County, Texas, L. J. Lincecum's household. Could this be Lucullus Garland? Or was there another son with initials L. C.?

      Ambush Slayer Makes Getaway After Man Dies

      Killer Rises From Ditch and Opens Fire on Truck Rider.

      Special to The News.
      HOUSTON, Texas, June 26 -- Officers Friday night were searching for the slayer of L. G. Lincecum, 55, of West Columbia, who was shot from ambush as he rode in a truck toward Houston near West Columbia, about forty miles south of Houston.

      Wallace Lincecum, who is a nephew of the slain man, and who was driving the truck, said the slayer rose from a ditch by the side of the road and fired two shots. Only one bullet struck Lincecum and it pierced his heart.

      So close did the slayer stand that the elder Lincecum's clothes were powder burned. A rain in the West Columbia section obliterated any trail the slayer might have left and Sheriff John McKinney of Brazoria County called for bloodhounds.

      Wallace Lincecum could not identify the slayer nor give a motive for the killing.

      - According to his death certificate, L. G. Lincecum died at 1:10 a.m., 26 June 1931 of a gun shot wound. Handwritten up the right side of the certificate is this: "Murdered June 26 - 1931 - by parties unknown."

      Lincecum is Given Five Years, Suspended

      ANGLETON, Texas. March 5 (AP) -- Wallace Lincecum, 22, was convicted Saturday of the murder of his uncle, L. G. Lincecum, and assessed a five-year suspended sentence.

      The jury reported at 10:20 a.m.

      The elder Lincecum was shot to death on a highway near here last June. The prosecution sought to show the nephew slew him to benefit by a $500 legacy provided in the elder's will.

      The defense pleaded the uncle, a Houston contractor, had committed suicide, offering depositions as well as witnesses.
