Welcome to Lincecum Lineage

Hello! My name is Stephanie Lincecum. If you know me at all, it’s likely because of tombstones. I’ve been writing about them at Southern Graves for years. Yet my personal genealogy has never found a focus, or a home. Oh, I’ve written about it in drips and drabs – starts and stutters – but never in a consistent, lasting way.

That changes today.

LincecumLineage.com is home to two things:

  1. My personal genealogy (including a companion blog)
  2. A Lincecum one-name study

While there’s not a lot here as of yet, genealogical information at the blog and project will definitely grow over time. Also, if you followed my personal genealogy blog on another platform, you may see some redundancy here as I move posts. But don’t worry, new stuff will be added.

Let me know if you agree with the findings. Walter’s father was Joseph Shelby Lincecum […]
