  • Notes 
    • - In the 1860 Cape Girardeau County, Missouri Federal census, Benjamin and Nancy's assets total $150. They had no real estate at that time. Neither could read or write, and they were living next door to Nancy's father, John.

      - According to the 1870 Cape Girardeau County, Missouri Federal census, Benjamin could not read or write.

      - Benjamin's gravestone reads "Died 1874, Age 60". Grandpa thought, "both bits of data are probably incorrect."

      - Per Grandpa's notes:
      Notes From Circuit Court Records
      Index Book 1

      May 10, 1875
      Plaintiff: State of Mo
      Defendant: Benjamin Lincecum
      Assault case dismissed. (Note: Gravestone says "Died 1874.")

      - "A neighbor" told Juanita her gggrandpa (Benjamin) was a horse thief and was hanged.
