Gideon Lincecum was born 1793 in Georgia to Hezekiah Lincecum and Sally Hickman. He was the grandson of Gideon Lincecum and Miriam Bowie. Miriam was the aunt of Jim Bowie of knife and Alamo fame.
Gideon had at least 8 siblings: Garland, Grant, Rezin, Green, Thornton, Mary, Grabel, and Emily. I've heard tale of another sister, but I'm not sure. In fact, I have no information on Mary, either. All other siblings are accounted for.
Gideon married Sarah Bryan 1814 Putnam County, Georgia. They had 13 children: Lycurgus, Lysander M., Martha, Leonidas, Leander, Mary, Lachaon, Lucullus, Leonora, Cassandra, Sarah, Lysander Rezin, and Lucifer.
Gideon and his family were in Mississippi not long after 1814. He had one of the first settlements in Columbus. Along the Tombigbee River is where he spent much of his time with the Indians and conducted his "famous" interview with Pushmataha. By 1850, Gideon was in Texas. Before 1870, he went to Mexico. He returned to Texas and died in Longpoint in 1874. Gideon was originally buried near home, but his remains now rest in the Austin, Texas State Cemetery.
