Is Travis Haywood Lincecum the Same as Haywood H. Lincecum?

Inquiring minds want to know.  It seems the two are one, but please tell me your thoughts.  I would especially appreciate a share if you believe there is conclusive proof one way or the other.

Travis Haywood Lincecum is named a child of Grabel and Wilmoth Lincecum in Grabel's 1836 last will and testament made in Oktibbeha County, Mississippi.  Much of the time, I find an individual presumed to be this son simply with the name of Haywood Lincecum.  Then, at times, he is found as Haywood H.  Here is a list of names come across in research, thinking Travis Haywood and Haywood H. are one in the same:

  • Haiwood H. Lincecum
  • Hayward Linsecum
  • Haywood Lincecum
  • Haywood H. Lincecum
  • Haywood Howard Lincecum
  • Haywood T. Lincecum
  • Heyward Lincecum
  • Travis Haywood Lincecum

By self [Public domain], via Wikimedia CommonsHaywood was born between 1824 and 1826 in either Alabama or Mississippi.  I lean toward Mississippi, though his father, uncles, and grandfather did stay for a bit in Alabama before settling in Mississippi.  Judy Jacobson's Alabama and Mississippi Connections* provides the following:

According to Old Tuskaloosa Land Office Records, on September 5, 1822, a "Gravel" Lincecum of Monroe County, Mississippi was awarded land in Sec 26 T 16 R 17 W...The only other land granted to a Lincecum by the Tuscaloosa land office was given to "Grabel" Lincecum on December 11, 1822.  That property was described as Sec 26 T 16 R 17 W in Monroe County.

Haywood married three times.  First, to Mary Ann Brown, 3 January 1850 at Noxubee County, Mississippi.  This union resulted in a son, Olympus.  Next, H. H. Lincecum married Mary E., formerly the wife of a Mr. Perkins, 21 February 1869 at Oktibbeha County, Mississippi.  This union resulted in a daughter, Otelia.  Lastly, Hayward Linsecum married Elizabeth "Betsy" McIlwain/e, 21 January 1873 at Noxubee County.  This union resulted in a son, Orono Brooks.

H. H. Lincecum has a tombstone at Soule Chapel Cemetery in Macon, Noxubee County, Mississippi.  The birth date inscribed is 20 February 1824, and the death date is 9 April 1900.
