  • Notes 
    • - Paschal and his family came to America and settled in Maryland. [B. J. Lincecum, Lincecum Genealogy; Stephanie Lincecum, Perry, GA, 2015. Featuring "The Lincecum Line" genealogy report dated January 1990.]

      - According to "Adventures of a Frontier Naturalist", Paschal's FATHER (he was a LINSEYCOMB who was left in France as an unexchanged war prisoner) married a French woman and had Paschal. Paschal had Gideon LINCECUM (born in France and raised in Maryland). They were Hugenot at the time they left France so religiuos reasons caused them to leave the country.

      - It is believed that Paschal and his wife had 3 daughters, as well as Gideon. ["Alabama & Mississippi Connections: Historical & Biographical Sketches of Families Who Settled on Both Sides of the Tombigbee River" by Judy Jacobson]

      - From Grandpa's genealogy research report, The Lincecum Line, prepared January 1990:

      LINSEYCOMB to LINCECUM

      The desire for freedom was an old Lincecum tradition which began when Paschal, the son of a French mother and a British father, fled his native France for America. He brought with him his French wife and infant son, Gideon, and in the new country changed the spelling of the family name from LINSEYCOMB to LINCECUM......
