Additional Details:
On this rocky farm, a little over a hundred years ago when Kentucky was the home of the woodsman and the pioneer, when the scant soil yielded reluctant harvest to the settler. Thomas Lincoln, one-time supervisor of county roads, and his wife, Nancy Hanks, came from Elizabethtown and built out of rough logs a cabin. In that cabin on the 12th day of February, 1809, was born their son, Abraham Lincoln.
