RE: Lincoln, Davis and Booth: Family Secrets
Thanks Mr Cowan, that was interesting. I had never heard those stories before. I'm still skeptical, but it was still interesting. Knowing how much people gossip, I would have thought those stories/rumors would have seen a wider circulation in Lincoln's time. Interesting that your references all come from Herndon. Does any other biographer verify this informatin?

Liz mentioned earlier regarding Bible reading that Dennis Hanks could tell a tale, (and so did Roger) so this could be another one. I have been led to believe that on occasion he could fabricate some stories, and other times tell the 100% truth.

And thanks, because I didn't know "Hendon's Informants" was on line.

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?
