There's a lot of information that suggest Abraham's biological father was not Lincoln.
I'm not necessarily believing the information. There's very little information about Abe's mother. George Bush is supposed to be an 8th cousin to Abraham Lincoln. I can't figure out how the Bush family could be related to him since the Lincolns or the Hanks didn't have royal blood.

Any thoughts regarding this?

Do the people of Hodgenville care about the important history of their town?

I don't know if George Bush is related to Abraham Lincoln. I do know that Isaac LaRue that married Phebe Carman would be the only way they could be related. John Carman had a daughter, Abigail Carman who married a Benjamin Coe, who is the side that Barbara Bush is related to. My side John Carman also had a son also by the name John Carman which is the side my family follows. Isaac LaRue married Phebe Carman, my sixth Great Grandparents. I was shocked to find out that Barbara Bush is my 8th Great Aunt. So George Bush would be a distant cousin of mine.

Abraham Lincoln's real last name was not Springs, it was Sprowls. His grandson, Joel Ray, runs a Jamboree. Joel Ray's son, Charles, is the drummer. They call it "The Lincoln Jamboree." Me and my daddy, George H.W. Bush, used to go down there and get Dilly Burgers.

I'm seriously interested in the history of Larue. Would love to read more from the old timers who have more knowledge of Lincoln and his relatives
