  • Notes 
    • - From 23 April 1972 edition of Victoria Advocate, Victoria, Texas:
      Gandy Bend Landmark by Sidney R. Weisiger
      "...In 1849 Daniel Gandy, a married man, began construction on a small square frame home which was to have four rooms and a hall or breeze way through the center...

      Daniel was doing pretty good on the building. The walls, roof, floors and studs for walls were in place; however, no ceiling had been put up.

      At this stage of construction Daniel's wife passed away causing her husband much grief and suffering. After the death of the wife, no more work was done on the inside of the house by Daniel...

      On down through the years none of the Gandy family ever added to or finished the home until 1962, when Barney Lincecum, the son of Letha Gandy and her husband Dr. Addison L. Lincecum of El Campo, got married and decided to wind up the job.

      Barney and his wife Mary covered the old wall studs, put up ceilings and added a bath and plumbing. The interior was painted in two tones, blue or pink.

      Asbestos siding was put on the outside and a metal roof covering laid over the old shingle roof.

      It didn't take too long to finish this home. From the time it was started, just 113 years elasped, or from 1849 to 1962."

      - Around 1965, Barney was living "in the century-old Gandy house deep in the sandy swamp lands out of Morales in Jackson County on the Gandy Bend Road." His father Addison was living with him. [Source: Gideon Lincecum, 1793-1874 by Lois Burkhalter. Page 87.]
