I have only written 22 posts, sharing what I "know" about "my" Lincecums, for the one-name study I'm attempting to conduct. Since Labor Day is upon us in the United States, I thought it might be interesting to go through the different occupations held by just the Lincecums (and those that married in) profiled here. I was surprised to find 13 different occupations, in addition to the "traditional" Housewife / Keeping House and Farm Work / Farmer / Farming / Farm Laborer so far represented on this blog. If you're interested, here they are:
- Addison Lysander Lincecum had a medical practice and was an assistant health officer. He was also a U.S. Postmaster, as well as a surgeon in the Confederate Army.
- Letha Elizabeth (Gandy) Lincecum was an author, in addition to housewife.
- In addition to being a housekeeper, Daisy (Lincecum) Tamplin was a laundry machine hand.
- Robert H. Tamplin, son of Daisy Lincecum, spent his pre-adult years working as a department store stock clerk. He was also a cook in the U.S. Army and a taxi driver.
- Earl L. Lincecum, Jr. was a house painter.
- John C. Roberts, who married Fernandella Lincecum, was a stock raiser and farmer. During the Civil War, he was a cattle driver.
- Garland Harvey Lincecum was a strut railway conductor. (Is that like a cable car conductor?)
- Haywood Lincecum was a miller.

Admittedly, the list was pretty easy to compile with such a short list of profiles. ;-)
Happy Labor Day!
