  • Notes 
    • Uncle of President Abraham Lincoln, little is known of his life in Kentucky where he settled with his father at an early age. He became a farmer and Henry Pittle wrote the following about Josiah and the family line: "I knew Mordecai and Josiah Lincoln intimately. They were excellent men, plain, moderately educated, candid in their manners and intercourse and looked upon as honorable as any men I have heard of". (Letter of Henry Pittle, June 17, 1865; see "Herndon's Life of Abraham Lincoln, Vol. I, p 7.)

      One of the many stories that President Lincoln told was the death of his grandfather for whom he was named. Josiah was witness to the murder of his father Abraham Lincoln (the elder).
