This person is an ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln.

Edward Lincoln was an only child of his parents, however he had two half brothers and two half sisters. Richard Lincoln was by his father's 2nd wife (name unknown); and Elizabeth Lincoln, Anne Lincoln, Henry Lincoln were by his father's last wife, Ann.

Elizabeth and Anne took Edward to court regarding properties and monies owed. In the end Henry Lincoln Inherited all, including all properties that were left to Edward before any of their births.[1] Richard, Edward's father, was buried in the middle aisle of St. Andrew's, evidence that he was of the gentry class. Richard died possessed of a considerable estate, but the children of his fourth marriage acquired all of his property except a small amount of land which was granted to his son Edward by the Chancery Court.

Lincoln-345 and Lincoln-2317 appear to represent the same person because: with little data to go on, I believe these may have been intended to be the same person.
