  • Notes 
    • - From Gideon Lincecum, 1793-1874 by Lois Wood Burkhalter (1965) -- pgs 70-71:
      "Most of the children were born in Cotton Gin Port. When the top six were old enough to go to school, Gideon bought a house in Columbus, Mississippi, where he sent them, with their mother, to be educated, while he remained in Cotton Gin Port to continue the practice he had established as a doctor.

      At the end of six months he went over to Columbus to see what progress the children had made. He expected great things of them, as they were all 'sprightly minded.'...Gideon questioned them about geography, history, and arithmetic. Their answers were vague and evasive...

      I had strained every financial nerve in getting a house at Columbus for them and had exerted my utmost powers to furnish provisions, clothing, etc., to keep them comfortable, and from the oft-repeated high reputation given the teachers in the newspapers I had hoped that I should experience the gratification of seeing signs of progress in my children. I was overwhelmed with disappointment. I felt like the whole world was a sham. My children, after six months' constant attendance at that highly praised institution could answer no question of use..."

      - Southern Argus (Columbus, Mississippi)
      24 May 1842 [via ChroniclingAmerica.log.gov]
      IN BANKRUPTCY -- No. 61,
      District Court of the United States, Northern District of Mississippi,
      NOTICE is hereby given, the L. W. LYNCECUM, of the County of Lowndes has been duly declared a Bankrupt, by an order of this said Court made on the 18th day of April A.D. 1842; and that the said L. W. Lincecum has applied for a certificate of final discharge from his debts, under the act of Congress, in such case made and provided: and that the Third Monday of July, A.D. 1842, at Aberdeen, has been set for the final hearing...

      - From Gideon Lincecum, 1793-1874 by Lois Wood Burkhalter (1965) -- pg. 78:
      "The first Lincecum marriage recorded in Washington County [Texas] is that of Leander W. C. Lincecum, the fourth son. He was married to Miss S. J. Stone, July 20, 1847...after having previously married a girl named Beatrice in Columbus, Mississippi. A touch of mystery in the [Gideon] Lincecum Papers is provided by a small account book for 1846 and 1847 expenses and purchases of the couple [Leander and Beatrice], paid for by Gideon. The book is labeled "Beatrice's Affairs -- Keep this book entirely secret on that depends much." Following the itemized account is an unaddressed letter in Gideon's handwriting dated January 31, 1847, giving instructions for the collection of notes due and advising against the incurring of debts and any pretension to prosperity. It obviously was intended for Leander. Gideon reported to a friend in 1865 that Leander has "married his third wife and is living 15 miles on the Yegua above Long Point and has an extensive practice in a tolerable poor community...What is more uncommon still, has become a sober, respectable man, not having been intoxicated since some time previous to the war." Leander's third wife was E. M. McFaddin, whom he married on July 21, 1853...During the early Civil War period Leander was detailed as a physician to remain in Washington County and care for the sick in the families of absent soldiers, but in 1863, at the age of forty-one, he enlisted as a private under Captain James R. Hines."

      - From Gideon Lincecum, 1793-1874 by Lois Wood Burkhalter (1965) -- pg. 73:
      "On November 9, 1848, M. Austin Bryan for $1,371.00 conveyed to Gideon Lincecum the northeast corner of League No. 5, containing 1,828 acres (Deed Records, Washington County, H, 355-356). The Lincecum land was disposed of, in differing lots and acreages and over a period of time until Gideon's death, to the following (Deed Records, Washington County): ...Leonora Campbell...Mary J. Rutherford...L. J. Lincecum...L. W. Lincecum...E. C. Lincecum...L. W. C. Lincecum...L. L. Lincecum...L. R. Lincecum...Sarah L. Doran...Cassandra Durham...Mary Matson..."

      - From Texas State Historical Association (https://tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/hvd29). Doddville was where L. W. C. and Tennessee Lincecum were counted in the 1860 Washington County, Texas Federal census. (Yegua also mentioned above.) --
      "DODDVILLE, TEXAS (Washington County). Doddville, also known as Dodd or Dodds, was probably on Yegua Creek fifteen miles north of Long Point in northern Washington County. It received its name from John Dodd, its first postmaster. In 1854 Doddville had a population of 287 whites and twenty-one black slaves. By 1856 the community had a school, and in September 1858 its post office opened. Doddville served as a center for an agricultural and stock-raising area. Its post office closed in June 1859, and by 1860 the population had decreased to 160, which included a teacher, a master mechanic, a well digger, and physician L. W. C. Lincecum, son of Gideon Lincecum, famed physician and botanist. The community declined as more fertile areas of the county were opened to cultivation and the population moved nearer to the projected rail route in southern Washington County...[Author] Carole E.
