LINCOLN, HANKS AND BOONE FAMILIES. 

Some Genealogical Notes Illustrating Their Connection. (1) 



1. In the year 1620 a Mrs. Lincoln, in Hingham, Count}' 
Norfolk, England, folded to her bosom a babe which she named 
Samuel. We have no positive information as to the given 
names of either the father or the mother. We do know that 
when the boy was 14 years of age he was apprenticed to Francis 
Lawes, in Norwich, England, to learn the art of weaving, at 
that time a thriving industry of that city, the chief seat of 
Puritanism. 

On April 8, 1637, Francis Lawes, Lidda, his Avife, with one 
child, Mary, and two servants, Samuel Lincorne, aged 18 
years, and Anne Smith, aged 19 years, were examined for emi- 
gration to New England, and came over either in the ship John 
and Dorothy of Ipswich, commanded by William Andrews, or 
in the Rose of Yarmouth, commanded by William Andrews, 
Junior, both of which vessels sailed in company, and landed 
their passengers at Salem, Massachusetts. Lawes remained in 
Salem, dying there in 1666. His daughter, Mary, married, 
1st, John Neale, 2d, Andrew ]\Iansfield. Soon after landing, 
Samuel Lincoln moved to Hingham, Massachusetts, where he 
became a proprietor in 1619. It is thought that Thomas Lin 
coin, who settled at Hingham in 1633, was a brother of Samuel. 

Samuel (1) Lincoln married about 1649, Martha , 



by whom he had 11 children. He v/as known both as "weaver" 
and as "mariner" on the records of Hiugliam. He died there 
May 26, 1690, aged 71 years, and his wife, Martha, died April 
10, 1693. Their children were: 

i. Samuel, (2) b. Aug. 25, 1650. m. Apr. 29, 1687, De- 

borah Hersey. He d. March. 1720-1.

2. Mordecai (2) Lincoln, born in Hingham, Massachii- 

setts, June 14, 1657, was a blacksmith, and worked at his trade 

in Hull, where he married about 1685, Sarah, daughter of 

Abraham and Sarah (Whitman) Jones. From Hull the familj' 

moved into the neigliboring town of Scituate about 1704, where 

Mordecai engaged in establishing a furnace for the smelting of 

iron ore. He became also the owner of saw and grist mills, 

and appears to have been a thriving, go-ahead man. His wife, 

Sarah, died about 1708, leaving 5 children, the first four born 

in Hull, and the fifth born in Scituate. Mordecai married, 2d, 

about 1710, widow, Mary Gannett, by whom he had one son. 

He died of apoplexy Nov. 8, 1727. His will, dated May 3, 

1727, was proven March 27, 1728. His inventory amounted to 

£3099, 14s, 8d. His children were : 

3. i. Mordecai, (3) b. April 24, 1686. 

4. ii. Abraham, b. Jan. 13, 1688-9.

3. Mordecai (3) Lincoln, born April 24, 1686, when 
grown moved with his brother, Abraham, to Monmouth county, 
New Jersey. There he married Hannah, dausrhter of Richard 
and Sarah (Bowne) Salter, of Freehold, Monmouth county, 
previous to September 14, 1714. the date of her uncle, Capt. 
John Bowne 's will, in which Hannah Lincoln has a bequest of 
£250. Capt. Bow^ne was a verj^ wealthy and influential man. 
Richard Salter was a leading lawyer of the province, county 
judge, and member of the Provincial Assembly. By deed dated 
Feb. 29, 1720, Richard Salter conveyed 400 acres of land situate 
on the Machaj3onix river to Mordecai Lincoln, and in another 
deed dated May 26, 1726, Salter conveyed 100 acres at the same 
place to Mordecai Lincoln, thjs deed mentioning the grantee 
as then of Chester county, Pa. A deed from Mordecai Lincoln, 
dated December 14, 1725, names him as of Coventry, Chester 
county, and indicates that he was then engaged in the manu- 
facture of iron. Hannah Lincoln died before December, 1725, 
having borne to Mordecai Lincoln 6 children, 
i. Hannah, (4). 
ii. Mary (4). 
5. iii. John (4).

children by Hannah, and the Amity land to his children by 
Mary, and makes Mary executrix, with "Loving friends and 
neighbors, Jonathan Robeson and George Boone, trustees." 
The children of Mordecai and Mary Lincoln were : 

6. vii. Mordecai. 

7. viii. Thomas. 

8. ix. Abraham. 

4. Abraham (3) Lincoln, born Jan. 13, 1689, probably 
went with his brother, Mordecai, to New Jersey. He was a 
blacksmith by trade, as related in a deed given ,by him Feb. 20, 
1737, conveying 240 acres of land that he had bought Feb. 11, 
1722, also 200 acres that he had bought March 15, 1725. This 
sale was preparatory to following his brother from New Jersey 
to Pennsylvania. His will was dated Springfield, Chester Coun- 
ty, Pa., April 15, 1745, and was entered for probate the 29th of 
the same month. The estate consisted of a plantation at Spring- 
field, and two houses in Philadelphia, which was divided 
among his children. No wife was mentioned, hence she had 
probably died, and we have, as yet, no trace of her name. The 
children, in the order given in the will, 

i. Mordecai (4). 

ii. Abraham. 

iii. Isaac. 

iv. Jacob. 

V. John. 

vi. Sarah. 

vii. Rebecca, m. Sept. 19, 1750, Joseph Rush. 
5. John (4) Lincoln, born about 1712, in East Jersey, 
went with his father, Mordecai, in 1725, to Pennsylvania. He 
was left by his father's will 300 acres of land in Middlesex 
county, N. J., being part of the tract conveyed Oct. 9, 1720, by 
Richard Salter to Mordecai (3) Lincoln. This land John con- 
veyed by deed November 8, 1748, naming himself then of 
Caernavon, Lancaster county. Pa. In 1750 he sold a farm in 
Union township, adjoining Exeter, and moved to Virginia, set- 
tling in Augusta county, in the part that was organized as 
Rockingham county in 1779. His will can not be foimd, as 
many of the papers in the probate court at Harrisonburg have

been destroyed by fire. But there is proof of his having had 
5 sons, perhaps more, besides daughters. The maiden name of 
his wife is not certainly known, but family tradition asserts 
that it was Moore. The names of the children positively 
known were : 

i. John (5) 
ii. Thomas (5). 
9. iii. Abraham (5). 
iv. Isaac (5). 

V. Jacob (5) had David (6), who was father of Abraham 
(7), b. 1820, living 1903 at Lacy Springs, Rock- 
ingham county, Va. 

6. Mordecai (4) Lincoln, b. about 1730, inherited one- 
third of his father's Amity, Pa., plantation. He was taxed in 
Berks county in 1752, and kept store. He was connected with 
the commissary or quartermaster department during the Revo- 
lution. His wife's name is unknown. After the Revolution- 
ary war Mordecai (6) moved to Fayette county. Pa., where his 
descendants live to this day. There he died in 1812, aged 82 
years, and he was buried at Uniontown. His children were : 

i. Benjamin (5), b. Nov. 29, 1756, settled in Fayette 
county, Pa. 

ii. John (5), b. March 28, 1758, when a young mail went 
to visit his uncle, John, in Va., and tliere had his 
nose bitten off in a fight, and his father was 
obliged to go for him. He was taken home to 
Fayette county, and placed under the guardian- 
ship of his brother, Benjamin, on the homestead 
farm. 

iii. Ann, b. Nov. 22, 1759, m. William Jones. 

iv. Hannah, b. Dec. 31, 1761. 

V. Sarah, b, Feb. 25, 1767. 

7. Thomas (4) Lincoln, b. 1733, was the second sheriff of 
BerKs county. He had two sons. 

i. Hananiah (5), served during the Revolution, subse- 
quently joined Boone's infant settlement in Ken- 
tucky, and afterwards moved to Missouri. 



LINCOLN, HANKS AND BOONE FAMILIES. 77 

ii. Michael, served in the Revolution, and immediately 
after the war closed settled in Union county, Pa., 
where his descendants live to this day. 

8. Abraham (4) Lincoln, the posthumous son of Morde- 
cai and Mary Lincoln, of Amity, Pa., b. 1736, m. Ann Boone, a 
first cousin of Daniel Boone. It is said that Daniel Boone used 
to go back from North Carolina often to visit his friends in 
Pennsylvania, and his glowing accounts of the south and west 
probably induced John (4) Lincoln to remove to Virginia. 
Alter his removal there he was called Virginia John to distin- 
guish him from others bearing the same name. Abraham was 
ft member of the legislature of Pennsylvania from Berks county 
in; 1782, a delegate to the Pennsylvania Convention which rati- 
fied the Constitution of the United States, also a member of the 
Convention which framed the Pennsylvania Consitution of 
1790. His descendants live in Berks, Chester, Lancaster and 
other adjoining counties. The children of Abraham and Ann 
Lincoln were : 

i. Mordecai. 
' ■ ii. James, b. 1766, d. Birdsboro, Pa., 1860, aged 94. 

iii. Thomas, d. 1864. 
iv. John. 

9. Captain Abraham (5) Lincoln was born near Harri- 
sonburg, Virginia, in 1751, and lived near Lynnville Creek, 
Rockingham county. He was a captain of militia in 1776, dur- 
ing that year presiding at a court martial at Staunton. The 
record is preserved in the Hustings court, and his name is 
signed as Abraham Linkhorn, of Staunton. There he married 
about 1772, Mary Shipley, and there his children were born. 
In 1782 the family emigrated to Kentucky, settling at Bear- 
grass Fort, near the present city of Louisville. In the original 
Field Book of Daniel Boone, in the possession of the State His- 
torical Society of Wisconsin, is the following entry : ' ' Abraham 
Lincoln enters 500 acres of land on a Treasury Warrant on the 
south side of Licking Creek or river, in Kentucky. ' ' In 1784, 
while at work with his boys clearing the forest, Captain Lin- 
coln was killed by a lurking Indian, who seized Thomas, 6 years 
old, as his captive. Mordecav the oldest boy, only 11 at the 



78 MISSOURI HISTORICAL REVIEW. 

time, shot the Indian through the heart. The children of Capt. 
Abraham and Marv (Shipley) Lincoln were: 

i. Mordecai (6), b. 1773, late in life moved to Hancock, 

county, 111. 
ii. Josiah (6), b. 1776, settled in Harrison county, Ind. 
10. iii. Thomas (6), b. 1778. 

iv. Mary, 6. 1780, m. Ralph Grume. 
V. Nancy, b. 1783, m. William Brumfield. 

10. Thomas (6) Lincoln was born in Augusta, afterwards 
Rockingham county, Va., in 1778. He went to Kentucky with 
his father, and as the latter was killed while Thomas was small, 
he grew up in poverty and privation. The law of entail being 
then in force, the little property left by Capt. Abraham Lin- 
coln fell to Mordecai, the oldest son, and the others were forced 
to struggle. Thomas grew up in ignorance, there being then 
no schools for the poor, and when old enough he was put to 
work at the carpenter trade with Joseph Hanks, of Elizabeth- 
town, Ky. On June 12. 1806. he married Nancy Hanks, born 
1783, a sister of Joseph Hanks, both of them being Thomas Lin- 
coln 's first cousins. She was superior in attainments and in- 
tellectual power, to her husband, and her memory was ever 
revered by her eminent son. In November 1817 the family re- 
moved to Spencer county, Indiana, where Nancy Hanks Lin- 
coln died October 5, 1818. In 1819 Thomas Lincoln married 
2d. Widow Sarah Bush Johnston, of Elizabethtown, Ky. In the 
spring of 1830 the family moved to Macon county, 111., making 
several changes thereafter, finally settling in Coles county, 
where Thomas Lincoln died in 1851, aged 73 years. The chil- 
dren of Thomas and Nancy Hanks Lincoln were : 

i. Sarah (7), b. 1807, m. 1826, Aaron Grigsby, d. 1828. 
ii. Abraham (7), b. Feb. 12, 1809. 
iii. Thomas, d. in infancy. 

11. i\braham (7) Lincoln, born in Hardin county, Ken- 
tucky, Feb. 12, 1809, moved to Indiana with his parents in 1817, 
thence to Illinois. He married at Springfield, Illinois, Nov. 
4, 1842, Mary Todd, b. 1818, at Lexington, Ky. His eminent 
life is too well known by all to need repetition here. He died

Szc'.V^^'^ - HANKS. 

In the year 1700 a family composed of Uriah Hanks and 
his wife, Lurana, with two sons, Benjamin and John, left their 
native place, Birmingham, England, and emigrated to America, 
landing at Plymouth, Mass. Benjamin finally settled in Conn., 
while John made his way to Pennsylvania. After some years 
John Hanks, as the name stands upon the record, citizen of 
Whitemarsh, stands up before the meeting in the Quaker meet- 
ing house in Gwynedd, near Philadelphia, and promises to be a 
true and loving husband to Sarah Evans. With his young wife 
he moved up the Schuylkill river to Berks county, settling in 
Union township, neighbor to Mordecai and John Lincoln, antl 
to George and Squire Boone, father and grandfather of Daniel 
Boone. 

About 1758 the families of John Lincoln and John Hanks 
moved to Virginia, and were neighbors in Rockingham county. 
The records of Harrisonburg are very defective, but it is cer- 
tain that Joseph Hanks, a son of John, married Nancy Shipley, 
an elder sister of Mary Shipley who married Captain Abraham 
Lincoln. Joseph Hanks moved from Amelia county, Va., with 
his family, about 1789, and settled in Nelson county, Ky. Thera 
he died in 1793, as his will dated Jan. 9, of that year, was pro- 
bated May, 14, 1793. By this will he made his wife, Nancy, 
executrix, and named 8 children as follows : 
i. Thomas. 
ii. Joshua. 

iii. William, married Elizabeth Hall. 
iv. Charles, 
v. Joseph, m. Polly Young. 



80 MISSOURI HISTORICAL REVIEW. 

vi. Elizabeth, m. Levi Hall. 

vii. Polly, m. Jesse Friend. 

viii. Nancy, b. 1783, m. Thomas Lincoln. 

Joseph Hanks, second, set up a carpenter shop in Eliza- 
bethtown, Ky., in which Thomas Lincoln, his first cousin, with 
scarcely any education, struggled for a livelihood. Two lines 
of Puritan pioneer descent had now met, one from Norwich, 
the other from Birmingham, and the marriage on June 12, 
1806, of Thomas Lincoln to his cousin, Nancy 
Hanks, had united them. Nancy, who was born in 
1783, had some education, and her intellect seems to have been 
stronger than that of her husband, although he was by no 
means the shiftless ne'er do well that he has been represented. 
She d, Oct. 5, 1818, on Pigeon creek, Spencer county, Indiana, 
Abraham Lincoln said "All that I am, I owe to my mother." 

SHIPLEY. 

Robert Shipley bought 314 acres of land on September 16, 
1765, in Lunenburg county, Virginia. His wife's name was 
Sarah Rachael. Their children were : 

i. Mary, who married about 1772, Capt. Abraham Lin- 
coln. ' 
ii. Lucy, married Richard Berry and moved ^bout 1789 
to Kentucky. She brought up her niece, Nancy 
Hanks, who was left an orphan young and at her 
house in Washington county, Ky., June 12, 1806, 
Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks, first cousins, 
were married, 
iii. Sarah, m. Robert Mitchell, settled in Ky. 
iv. Elizabeth, m. Thomas Sparrow, settled in Kentucky, 
v. Nancy, m. Joseph Hanks and died in Kentucky 
not very long after her husband's death in 1793. 

BOOXE. 

1 . The first of this family in America was Geo. Boone, who 
was born about 1670 at the old family home of Bradwinf»h, 
abo\it 8 miles from Exeter, England. There he married Mary 
, by whom he had nine sons and two daughters. The

entire family emierrated to America, landing at Philadelphia, 
October 10, 1717. Georire Boone purchased a tract of land in 
what is now Bucks county, Pa., and called it Exeter from the 
town in England whence he had emigrated. Of his eleven 
children I have only been able thus far to trace three sons by

2. Squire (2) Boone was married July 23, 1720, in Essex 
to^vnship. Pa., to Sarah Morgan, and they had 11 children — 7 
boys and 4 girls. In 1752 the family moved to North Carolina, 
settling on the banks of the Yadkin river, eight miles from 
where the town of Wilkesborough now stands. The children

gan his adventurous travels, although he had a good education 
for the times, and was a skilled land surveyor. He removed 
with his father's family to North Carolina in 1752, and there 
was married to Rebecca Bryant, August 14, 1756. He d. in St. 
Charles county, Missouri, September 26, 1820. They had
