  • Notes 
    • Thomas and his wife Charlotte moved with his parents to Ohio, where they had two children, and came in the spring of 1830 to Sangamon Co., IL., where six children were born.

      In 1876; living at Pleasant Plains. He remembers being present on Richland creek when Abraham Lincoln was waiting to make a speech. Josiah Grady said: "Lincoln, thay have the story in circulation that you are a Deist." Mr Lincoln immediately answered: "That is not so: my father was an old Baptist, and taught me to believe in the Christian religion, and I do belleve in it as much as anybody; but I confess I have no religion."
