  • Notes 
    • - From Gideon Lincecum, 1793-1874 by Lois Wood Burkhalter (1965) -- pg. 87:
      "Lachaon Joseph, known as Doc, was a practicing physician for a while but preferred farming. He married Elizabeth Cleveland, February 27, 1852, the Reverend R. H. Belvin, officiating. Lachaon was a beef contractor during the war, buying up beef cattle and driving them to the Confederate Army. At one time he swam 956 head across the Mississippi at Natchez. Later he enlisted at Camp Randle under Captain Thomas L. Scott."

      - From Gideon Lincecum, 1793-1874 by Lois Wood Burkhalter (1965) -- pgs 70-71:
      "Most of the children were born in Cotton Gin Port. When the top six were old enough to go to school, Gideon bought a house in Columbus, Mississippi, where he sent them, with their mother, to be educated, while he remained in Cotton Gin Port to continue the practice he had established as a doctor.

      At the end of six months he went over to Columbus to see what progress the children had made. He expected great things of them, as they were all 'sprightly minded.'...Gideon questioned them about geography, history, and arithmetic. Their answers were vague and evasive...

      I had strained every financial nerve in getting a house at Columbus for them and had exerted my utmost powers to furnish provisions, clothing, etc., to keep them comfortable, and from the oft-repeated high reputation given the teachers in the newspapers I had hoped that I should experience the gratification of seeing signs of progress in my children. I was overwhelmed with disappointment. I felt like the whole world was a sham. My children, after six months' constant attendance at that highly praised institution could answer no question of use..."

      - From Gideon Lincecum, 1793-1874 by Lois Wood Burkhalter (1965) -- pg. 73:
      "On November 9, 1848, M. Austin Bryan for $1,371.00 conveyed to Gideon Lincecum the northeast corner of League No. 5, containing 1,828 acres (Deed Records, Washington County, H, 355-356). The Lincecum land was disposed of, in differing lots and acreages and over a period of time until Gideon's death, to the following (Deed Records, Washington County): ...Leonora Campbell...Mary J. Rutherford...L. J. Lincecum...L. W. Lincecum...E. C. Lincecum...L. W. C. Lincecum...L. L. Lincecum...L. R. Lincecum...Sarah L. Doran...Cassandra Durham...Mary Matson..."

      - From Confederate Pension Application of Indigent Soldier, dated April 1907 [Alabama, Texas and Virginia Confederate Pensions, 1884-1958 at Ancestry]:

      L. J. Lincecum was a resident of Gonzales County, Texas, and had been for 12 years. He was 80 years old and not able to engage in an occupation. He described his physical condition as bad -- old age and general debility.

      L. J.'s command (Company B; calvary) was originally organized in Texas. He served four years, 1861 through 1865.

      When asked if he was in indigent circumstances, as in actual want and destitute of property and means of subsistence, L. J. answered in the affirmative.

      L. J. affirmed that he had been a bona fide continuous resident of the state of Texas since January 1880.

      Two witnesses were interrogated regarding the service of L. J. Lincecum. One stated he knew him "in the summer of 1864 in the Army on the Rio Grande." L. J. was part of Geo. H. Giddings battalion, Col. John S. Ford's Expeditionary forces on the Rio Grande.

      His Confederate Pension Application was approved.
