  • Notes 
    • - From Gideon Lincecum (1793-1874) by Lois Burkhalter (University of Texas Press, 1965):
      [Pg. 81] "Campbell was captain of Co. F, 5th Regiment, Texas Mounted Volunteers under Colonel Thomas Green of General Henry Hopkins Sibley's New Mexican Brigade. Cassianus and Joseph, Lycurgus' two oldest boys, were in his company, as were many other Washington County boys. It was mustered September 5, 1861. At this time Campbell was thirty years old and the father of seven children. He survived the battles of New Mexico and the cruel and exhausting retreat to Texas, but was too ill and dejected to continue with Green's regiment. Gideon recorded his death: 'George Campbell, after returning from the Arizona campaign, drank himself to death. He dropped dead in a doggery in Brenham, leaving his wife and seven children poorly provided for.' Gideon was devoted to Leonora, but his fondness for her seven children was qualified, as he told a friend, because though they were 'well enough looking, [they were] tipped off with a little too much Campbell.'"
