  • Notes 
    • William was murdered by his wife’s half-brother, Thomas J. Bacomb, the son of her mother by a former marriage. He and Lucinda had been on horseback when he was fired upon by Bacomb who attempted to justify his act by claiming William had slapped Lucinda. A few days earlier William had outfitted Bacomb for a trip to California in hopes of getting rid of him. Bacomb attempted to escape on the horse that William had given him. [8, 9]
