  • Notes 
    • - The couple might have met through Cassandra's father. Following from Lois Burkhalter's 1965 biography of Gideon Lincecum (1793-1874):

      Cassandra, the third daughter, was married to George J. Durham, an Englishman of Austin, Texas…This marriage pleased Gideon. He and Durham had been drawn together through mutual interest in ornithology and grape culture and were friends before Durham met Cassandra.
