Timeline Report for Fernandella Lincecum Roberts (1840-1933)

By Reading Associate 17 (own work), via Wikimedia Commons.Fernandella "Della" Lincecum Roberts lived to the age of 93 years, and surely saw a lot in those 9+ decades on earth.  Della's father, Garland Lincecum, was one of those who signed a petition to create Caldwell County, Texas.  Della lost her father at age 13, was married and had her first child by 18.  She would have her last child at age 45.  Della spent most of her life in the same Caldwell county, and was buried in a cemetery on land originally owned by her father.  (Courthouse image at right.)

Slavery was normal until she was 22.  She couldn't vote until she was 79.
