VERY cool photo! Where did you ever find the image of a young Abe Lincoln?
Neat photo but I doubt very seriously it's a young Abe Lincoln. Photography in the US was not widely available until after the mid and more into the late 1840s. Abe would have been much older than this individual.

Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln was the United States’ 16th President in 1861, and is best remembered for his role in ending slavery in the United States. During his presidency, he signed the Emancipation Proclamation, which declared that all slaves in the Confederate states were to be set free in 1863. Lincoln warned the South in his Inaugural Address: “In your hands, my dissatisfied fellow countrymen, and not in mine, is the momentous issue of civil war. The government will not assail you…. You have no oath registered in Heaven to destroy the government, while I shall have the most solemn one to preserve, protect and defend it.” Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky in 1809 to Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks and spent much of his early life working on the family farm. He was largely self-educated, and his passion for reading and learning helped him to become a successful lawyer and politician.

I want to build a place where my son can meet his great-grandparents. My grandmother Marian Joyce (Benning) Kroetch always wanted to meet her great-grandchildren, but she died just a handful of years before my son's birth. So while she didn't have the opportunity to meet him, at least he will be able to know her. For more information about what we're building see About AncientFaces.

My father's side is full blood Sicilian and my mother's side is a combination of Welsh, Scottish, German and a few other European cultures. One of my more colorful (ahem black sheep) family members came over on the Mayflower. He was among the first to be hanged in the New World for a criminal offense he made while onboard the ship.
