My Cousin A. Lincoln-a preview
This is a preview of the e-book Facts About Abraham Lincoln.
I’ve been told I looked like certain people and found out that I was distantly related to them through common ancestors.
I’ve been told,most of my adult life, that I look like A. Lincoln and I’ve come to see that that isn’t such a bad thing.
Our common ancestor was Obadiah Holmes. I recently did a Google search on him and learned that his most famous descendant is none other than Abraham Lincoln.
Why is this important?
Over the years many people have said that I have a resemblance to the sixteenth President of the United States and wondered if I had some relationship to him. Well I guess I do though distantly.
