Some random and some not-so-random thoughts on family history.

Sympathy Saturday, Mary Ann Todd

On this day, July 16, 1882, Mary Ann Todd, also known as Mary Todd Lincoln died at the home of her sister, Mrs. Ninian Edwards (Elizabeth Todd) in Springfield, Illinois. She was my second cousin, four times removed through the Parker and Todd families of Lexington, Kentucky. Hopefully clicking on the image will bring up a larger image of the obituary.

  1. Very nice historical connection.

  2. Very cool that you're connected to her. I was just at the gravesite of the Lincoln family in Springfield last month.
