    • (Research):Comptonology is giving the fruits of some research work on the kinship of one branch of the Compton family of America to the Abraham Lincoln's family. Capt. William Bowne, a nabob of English settlement of Long Island had among other daughters Mary and Sara. Mary Bowne and William Compton came to Monmouth Co., NJ by 1666 was one of the 12 men to help establish the Baptist Church at Middletown and the children of William and Mary were Richard md. Providence Isselstyne (Prudence Usselton) 1694 NJ, Cornelius thought to have md. -?- Stout, Jacob md. Elizabeth (last name unknown) and Judith md. Benjamin Devell 1689--possibly they had other children. Sara Bowne md. Richard Salter, moved to Monmouth Co., NJ and had these children: Thomas, John, Hanna, Richard Jr.,Wm., Ebenezer, James, Beborah and Oliver. Sara, wife of Richard Saltar, was a member of the Baptist Church at Middletown Co., NJ. There are other Saltars who must have been children of Richard and Sara Saltar. Hanna Saltar md. Mordecai Lincoln, who was born 4/24/1686 at Hingham, Mass, and came to NJ with His brother Abraham by 1708. Mordecai was son of Mordecai, Sr. and grandson of Samuel Lincoln, the emigrant from England, who came to Hingham by 1637. Samuel md. Martha, her last name is unknown, and they had eleven children.
      Mordecai and Hanna Salter Lincoln's oldest son was John b. 5/3/1711, and moved with his parents and other children to Chester Co., PA by 1725. This John Lincoln in 1748 sold land in Middlesex Co., NJ which had been willed him by his father on Cranberry Creek, 300 acres to Wm. Dye for 200 lbs..
      At that date John resided in Lancaster Co., PA. This John was the great grandfather of the president, Abraham Lincoln. We do not know whom this John married, but in some way, they were related to Daniel Boone, the frontiersman. Doubtless all five of John's children were born at Caernarvon Township, Lancaster Co., PA. The third son was Abraham the grandfather of the president b. 7/16/1739. In 1767 or '68 John moved to the Shenandoah Valley, near the present site of Harrisonburg, Virginia. There he was referred to as "Virginia John" to distinguish him from a cousin John living in PA. His son Abraham accompanied him to Virginia where he purchased land in 1773 and sold it in 1780, when incited by narratives of his kinsman Daniel Boone whom he followed to the wilds of KY by or before 1784, and was shot and killed by the Indians in 1784. Abraham's son, Thomas b. 1/20/1780, was the father of the president. It is of interest to know that in the progressive migration of the noted family from Hingham, Mass. through NJ, PA, Virginia, KY, IN, onto IL and the White House. Here we show the first time Abraham Lincoln speaks of his people; statement made in 1860. "I was born 2/12/1809, Harden Co., KY. My parents were both born in Virginia of undistinguished families, possibly of the second generation, I should say. My mother, who died when I was 10 years old, was a Hanks, some of whom now reside in Adams Co., IL. My paternal grandfather Abraham Lincoln came from Rockingham Co., Virginia to KY about 1781-2 where a year or so later he was killed by Indians--not in battle but by stealth when he was laboring to open a farm in the forest. His ancestors came from PA. My father, at the death of his father, was six years of age, and grew up literally without education.
      My father removed to Spencer Co., IN in my 8th year and there reached our new home when the state came into the Union. It was a wild region, with many bears and other wild animals still in the woods. There were schools but no qualifications of teachers beyond 'readin', 'writen' and 'cipherin' to the 'Rule of Three'. If a straggler, supposed to know and understand Latin happened to sojourn in the neighborhood, he was looked upon as a wizard. There was nothing to excite ambition for education. Of course when I grew up I did not know much. At 21 I came to Macon Co., IL, then to New Salem where I remained a year or so as clerk in a store." (and so on in his narrative.) Then Abraham says "an effort has been made to identify my family with the Lincoln family of New England and has ended in nothing more definite than a similarity of Christian names in both families, such as Enoch, Levi, Mordecai,Solomon, Abraham and so on. It has since been proved the families are the same.
      At Clarksburg, Monmouth Co., NJ there was found some years ago a small weather beaten tombstone, a marker of Mordecai and Hanna Salter Lincoln's daughter Bebora died age 3 years and 4 months. It is near the town where Mordecai and Hanna Lincoln had lived before 1711. The grave received official recognition some years ago when Miss Ida Tarbell led a motorcade of persons interested in Lincoln to the "Ye Olde Robbins Cemetery" and placed a wreath on the grave.
