Abraham Lincoln – U152+ L2+

Abraham Lincoln

By Richard A. Rocca

Family Tree DNA kit no. 174343 (James Lincoln, 1875-1967) has tested derived for Y-chromosome SNP L2. The Lincoln surname match and a 36/37 match with kit no. 130589 (Edward Lincoln, b.c. 1575, Hingham, England) makes them almost certainly related. The historical significance is that Edward Lincoln was the great-great-great-great-great-grandfather of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States.

These two kits and all other male descendents of Samuel “the Weaver” Lincoln (Edward Lincoln’s son who migrated to the United States) in the Lincoln surname project have very close STR haplotypes:

Therefore, barring a non-paternal event, Abraham Lincoln would also have been U152+ L2+.
