Hi closest cousin and thank you for your service.
I am the 8th great granddaughter of “Sam the Weaver” and Martha Lyford Lincoln. Not only do I have numerous ancestors in Hingham, MA going back to the 1600’s, but I currently live next door in Hull, MA. My family stayed in the south shore and I grew up in Canton, Massachusetts.
After Samuel, I descend down from his son, Daniel, and then his son, Hezekiah, his son, Hezekiah, his son, Obadiah, his daughter, Sarah, her daughter, Mary, her daughter, Mabel, her daughter, Helen (my late “Nana”), my late “Dad,” Leonard, and then me.
I don’t know if you happened to catch the post above this one about “Honest Abe” possibly not having a Lincoln father? I’m still stunned.
