      Marker:
      Garland R. Lincecum, cousin of Alamo hero James Bowie, and his wife Emmaline left Mississippi and settled on land he had purchased here in 1847. Lincecum, who signed a petition with others to create Caldwell County in 1847, died in 1853 and was the first person buried here. Three of his daughters were married to the sons of fellow Mississippian Alexander Roberts, who settled in this area in 1843. The last person buried here was Jacob G. Roberts, Lincecum's grandson, in 1938. Members of the pioneer Roberts and Lincecum families and their descendants are interred here.

      - "Garland Lincecum was a well remembered and strange historic character. In personal appearance he looked in every particular like an Indian, except that he was white. His hair and eyes were as black as a raven's wing, and long black hairs grew from his prominent cheek bones, the rest of his face being bare. He generally wore the Indian dress in whole or in part. His leather hunting shirt, fringed, beaded, and tasseled, and his leggings and moccasins were a marvel to the Columbus boys. He was for many years the proprietor of the Columbus ferry and with his Choctaw assistants ferried over the missionaries, traders, and travelers going to Jackson, on the State road. His last home was on the bluff of the river occupied by the steam sawmill,...just above the cold spring that gushes so abundantly from the bluff below....He went to the farthest frontier of Texas and died there." - A HISTORY OF COLUMBUS, MISSISSIPPI DURING THE 19TH CENTURY by W. L. Lipscomb

      - In the book, WHO WAS WHO AMONG THE SOUTHERN INDIANS 1698 - 1907, by Don Martini, published 1998 the following is given:

      LINCECUM, GARLAND: White resident among the Chickasaw Indians, married Martha Wall in Monroe County, Mississippi, on October 9, 1834. He was born in 1797 and died in 1853.

      Source of Info: Monroe County Will and Marriage Book, 1:38

      - "According to an article written by Mrs. Brunetta Griffith, a direct descendant of Sophia Folsom Pitchlynn, "One morning at the breakfast table there was an altercation between the brothers and Jack [John "Jack" Pitchlynn, Jr.] killed his brother Silas with a blow from his tomahawk. He fled to the Chickasaw Nation. Sophia was a way from home but upon return she made plans to avenge her son's death. She hired a prominent citizen of Columbus, Mississippi to carry out her plans. Following her instructions Garland Lincecum sought out Jack Pitchlynn, killed him and buried him where he fell, pistol, watch and money." Gideon Lincecum, John Jr.'s business partner, (and a brother of Garland Lincecum), indicates that Garland was John Jr.'s bodyguard, and when Garland and John Jr. were seperated one night, John Jr. was ambushed and killed. There is some indication that this event took place at or near Cotton Gin Port." [Source: Website, "Descendants of James Logan Colbert <http://www.chickasawhistory.com/colbert/index.htm>.
