  • Notes 
    • Family history says that she is the daughter of Mordecai Lincoln, uncle to Abraham Lincoln.

      There is no doubt about Rebecca Mary Lincoln's marriage to Wales Warren, but no proof exists that she was Mordecai's daughter or even a descendant of his.

      The dates are more than a century off.
      Mordecai b. 1686, Hingham, MA. Children:
      John, b. 1716
      Deborah, b. 1718
      Mary, b. 1719
      Hannah, b. 1720
      Anne
      Sarah
      Mordecai; b. 1730
      Thomas, b. 1732
      Abraham, b. 1736.

      Mary Rebecca, wife of Wales was b. 1839. Even if she was the daughter of Mordecai's son, Mordecai, we're still 109 years off.
