    Notes 
    • - The couple might have met through Cassandra's father. Following from Lois Burkhalter's 1965 biography of Gideon Lincecum (1793-1874):

      Cassandra, the third daughter, was married to George J. Durham, an Englishman of Austin, Texas…This marriage pleased Gideon. He and Durham had been drawn together through mutual interest in ornithology and grape culture and were friends before Durham met Cassandra.

      GUARDIAN'S SALE.
      The State of Texas to all persons interested in the guardianship of SIDNEY and MARY L. DURHAM, minors:

      Walter W. Durham, guardian of said minors, has filed his application in the County Court of Travis counry praying for a sale of certain real estate belonging to them for thei education and maintenance, which will be heard at the next term of said court, to be held at the court house thereof, in Austin, on the Third Monday in September, 1878, when and where all persons interested may appear and make objections thereto...

      - For the 1880 Austin, Travis County, Texas Federal census, it appears Walter and brother Sid were living in the "family home" on Pecan Street. Their sister "Lela" was boarding a few doors down in the Ben J. Smith household. Both Ben and wife Eliza were school teachers. Twelve-year-old Lela's occupation was "at school."
