Date: Fri, 07 Jul 2000 20:20:05 -0500
According to the Eells Family History 1633-1952 by the Eells Family Association 1985:
#5.38.4 Mrs. Abiah Eells Lincoln of Cromwell, CT was baptized March 5, 1737/8 at
Scituate, MA, on Sept 23, 1765 married Mordecai Lincoln Jr. the son of Mordecai, and
the grandson of Samuel Lincoln of Hingham. Mordecai was Abraham Lincoln's
great grandfather. They had four children: William, Joseph, Hannah and Mordecai.
Abiah Eells Lincoln was a sister to my maternal gggg grandmother Hannah Eells who
married Anthony Eames of Marshfield, MA.
Hope this helps,
