Caution: No Abraham Lincoln Ancestry

James Hanks and his wife Lucy Shipley have in the past been believed to be the parents of Nancy Hanks, wife of Thomas Lincoln, and Abraham Lincoln's mother. DNA tests have now proven that such a relationship is impossible and Abraham Lincoln has no Shipley ancestry. [1]

According to the following source, there was another man named Abraham Lincoln, and he is probably the man who is connected to this family: Historical and Genealogical miscellaneous data. Please read all of paragraph 54.
