Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States of America.

He was famously born on February 12, 1809 in a one-room log cabin on the Sinking Spring Farm in Hardin County, Kentucky.

He saw military service during the Black Hawk War as a captain in the Illinois Militia, where he served for about 3 months.

Although his Lincoln ancestors arrived in Hingham, Massachusetts in 1637, where many of my ancestors were also living, it looks like it was in New York and New Jersey that our families connected.

He is my 6th cousin 3 times removed through our shared ancestors Richard and Penelope Stout.

– daughter Mary Stout and James Browne
– daughter Sarah Browne and Richard Salter
– daughter Hannah Salter and husband Mordecai Lincoln
– son John Lincoln and Rebecca Flowers
– son Abraham Lincoln and Nancy Hook
– son Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks
– son is Abraham Lincoln who became President.
