- Lincoln Connection
This page provides
some of the information that we have discovered showing our connection
with President Abraham Lincoln, through our Shipley lineage.
Left: Brice SHIPLEY, born 1832, near Mt. Vernon, Ohio -- 2nd great-grandson of Robert SHIPLEY, Sr.
Right: Abraham Lincoln, born 1809, Sinking Spring Farm, Kentucky -- 2nd great-grandson of Robert SHIPLEY, Sr.
* Brice and Abraham had the same 2nd great-grandfather, so they were
3rd cousins. President Abraham Lincoln is my 3rd cousin, five
generations removed. Brice SHIPLEY is my 2nd great-grandfather. Brice
and Elvira Clarisa ALDRICH traveled the Oregon Trail in 1864. Grandma
Elvira wrote in her diary while traveling the Oregon Trail. You can
read the SHIPLEY diary here:
