    • Attie G. Bradford
      Born in Long Point, Tex.
      June 1, 1852
      Died in Brenham, Tex.
      Aug 12, 1893

      - From Lois Burkhalter's 1965 Biography of Gideon Lincecum (pgs 252 & 263):
      "On his birthday, April 23, 1868, Gideon wrote in his journal: 'I am this morning going on my 76th year. My great recuperative forces got me again well as ever and we are all about ready to be off [to Tuxpan, Mexico]. I sold my ambulance and horses, Leonora her land. We have nothing to do now but wait for the ship.'

      But there was one other thing for him to do. Gideon had no will, for he had already divided his land among his children and there was little left. But he noted a few bequests:

      ...To my granddaughter, Attilia Campbell, for her kind attention to her suffering Grandmother I give my fine large bed, two pillows, the sheets and quilts belonging thereto...

      ...Unable to afford sending the [Campbell] children to the American school in Tuxpan, Gideon taught them himself. They picked up Spanish easily and, with their native garments and their sun-darkened skin, were often regarded as natives by new arrivals. Leonora found the Mexicans gentle, cultured, and gracious. She encouraged her children to associate with them rather than with the Americans, some of whom she found crude and unmannerly."

      - From Lois Burkhalter's 1965 Biography of Gideon Lincecum (pg. 259):
      "Attie became engaged in May, 1869, to Miguel Mirales, an event which brought congratulations from Sioux Doran. Gideon appeared pleased with the match, describing the young man as being from an old and wealthy family engaged in wholesale buisness and being also 'sober, industrious and very polite.' But this engagement was broken."

      - From Lois Burkhatler's 1965 Biography of Gideon Lincecum (pgs 273-5):
      "George Bradford, a twenty-four-year-old doctor from Galveston, arrived in Tuxpan, met, and fell in love with Attilia Campbell. Gideon considered him an industrious young man 'having as good a knowledge of the science of medicine as is common among doctors.' It was his proud duty to accompany George and Dr. Boyd to the alcalde's office where, in accordance with Mexican custom, the bans were issued...

      Gideon was joyfully optomistic about the marriage:
      'Fifteen days hence the nuptial ceremonies will be consummated. This will constitute him my grandson-in-law and to him I shall resign my portion of the battlefield upon which we contend for subsistence. He is a large, strong, healthy young man. Seems to be willing; and, like all willing folk, can do anything that comes to hand...I feel proud of him and look upon it as a fortunate circumstance for Leonora and her children for it won't be long before I go and they would get along badly in any country.'

      Attie's wedding was the occasion for a big celebration among the fun-loving natives and colonists. Leonora yielded to the guests' wishes for dancing and permitted the wedding reception to be held in town at a large home of their friends, the Becerras. Leonora killed and prepared a shoat and baked a cake and Don Angel Becerra cooked a big gobbler and provided the wine.

      The civil ceremony last an hour, after which 'the kissing and cackling went around as at an American occasion and of that kind.'

      Attie and George divided the Lincecum parlor into two rooms 'with a very neatly constructed canvas partition' and planned to live with the family until lumber for a house of their own arrived from Galveston.

      ...Young George Bradford took over as supervisor of farm activities. Gideon summarized:
      'It is all in good condition now. All clean with a fine growing crop of corn, sugar cane and one thousand hills of plantains and bananas, besides the small crops. A good horse, cart and farming tools besides a copious sugar house, mill, coolers, etc., and a pen full of fat hogs...I hope they may do well on it, but go as it may I shall work no more. I have done three years hard, daily labor besides paying out $1500 to fix this substantial, pleasant home.'"

      - From Lois Burkhalter's Biography of Gideon Lincecum (pg. 279):
      "But Gideon refused to yield to time, although he knew his strength was declining. When George and Attie made a sudden decision to return to Texas, Lincecum once more was forced to return to farm work. He was sorely disappointed in the young couple, but his only comment was: 'So I had to lay down my vial rack and go back to the fields.'"
