      - John can be found in the 1887 Louisville, Kentucky city directory. His address was 544 1st. He was a boarder and occupation was listed as student. [Source: Cravin, Amy, ed. Louisville, Kentucky Directory, 1887 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: The Generations Network, Inc., 2000. Original data: Louisville City Directory, 1887. n.p., 1887.]

      - 1 March 1891, Galveston Daily News (Texas)
      The Victoria Review remarks:
      ...Dr. J. L. Lincecum, who has been a practicing physician in Victoria a short while, was some time since confined to his rooms at the Rupley building and isolated, quarantined and guarded there by order of the health officer because he was adjudged by him to have smallpox. One night, soon after, Dr. Lincecum with his wife eluded the guard around the building and made his escape to Goliad, where it is stated, [?] Lincecum became sick with smallpox. On last Sunday Dr. Lincecum returned to Victoria, and was arrested on Monday by the authority of the health officer and board of health for violation of quarantine regulations. Brought that day before acting Mayor Hexter, Dr. Lincecum was fined for his offense $100 and costs. Failing to pay this fine imposed he was consigned to the city calaboose where he now lies.

      - The Galveston Daily News (Texas)
      6 December 1891 [The Portal to Texas History -- http://texashistory.unt.edu]
      ...A Doctor Charged With Perjury.
      VICTORIA, Tex., Dec. 5. -- ...Dr. J. L. Lincecum, who was quarantined here during the smallpox excitement last winter and escaped from confinement, was indicted by the grand jury yesterday for perjury. He was tried for violation of the quarantine law and acquitted, and the alleged perjury is in his testimony at the trial. He was released on $1000 bond...

      - According to the 1900 Victoria County, Texas Federal census, J. was divorced.

      - According to the 1910 Victoria County, Texas Federal census, John was on his second marriage. His wife, Ida, was also noted as being on her second marriage. The couple together had supposedly been married 11 years.

      - Victoria Advocate (Texas)
      VICTORIA
      50 and 25 Years Ago
      (From Advocate Files)

      JANUARY 12, 1911
      Dr. J. L. Lincecum has ordered a $1400 E.M.F. roadster through L. G. Kreisle, and will receive it in a few days. Dr. Lincecum has the reputation of being a reckless driver of horses, and the fact of him owning an automobile will doubtless cause considerable apprehension among pedestrians. The doctor is fully aware of this, and said jokingly this morning that he would have his car equipped with a fender and employ a Red Cross nurse to ride with him.

      - In 1930, John owned an $8,000 home.

      - The informant listed on John's death certificate was Dr. A. L. Lincecum of El Campo, Texas.
