"In an old family Bible in Reading, Pa., appear these two entries: Anne Boone was bornon the first day of the week, about five o'clock in the afternoon, on
the 3rd of April, Old Style, A.D. 1737, or A. D. 1737, Apr. 14, New Style. Abraham Lincoln and Anne Boone were married on the fifth day of the week, on the 10th day of July, A.D. 1760. When his age was 23 yrs., 8 months and 11 days. Her age 23 years, 2 months and 26 days. He being 5 mon., 15 days and 22 hrs. older than she. In Exeter Meeting records, there is the following: Anne Lincoln (Relict of Abraham Lincoln and daughter of James Boone), departed this life on the 4th day of the 4th m. A.D. 1807, aged 69 yrs, 11 mo., 21 d., 14 h., 10 m., and was interred at Exeter on the 6th, the 2nd d. of the week.

Abraham Lincoln of Berks Co., the son of Mordedai and Mary Lincoln, was born in Amity Township, Philadelphia Co., subsequently Berks Co., Pa. His father, who died in May of that year, a few months before the birth of Abraham, was the ancestor of President Lincoln. Abraham was brought up on his father's farm. He received a fair education, and became quite prominent in the affairs of his native county. For six years, from 1773 to 1779, he held the office of County Commissioner. He was an active patriot,and was appointed one of the sub-lieutenants of the county Mar. 21, 1777. He served in the General Assembly from 1782 to 1786, and was a delegate to the Pennsylvania Convention to ratify the Federal Constitution in 1787. He did not sign the ratification. Under the act of March 14, 1784, he was appointed one of the Commissioners of Fisherics. He was a member of the State Constitutional Convention of 1780-90, and appears to bhave been a man of much influence in that body. He died at his residence in Exeter Township, in his seventieth year.

The Lincolns were Congregationalists and the Boones Quakers, consequently Anne Boom's marriage to Abraham Lincoln was "out of Meeting," and considered a disorderly act. For this she was disciplined by the Exeter Monthly Meeting, and acknowledged her error to the Meeting on August 27, 1761.

In Volume II, page 153, of Berks County Wills, is recorded the probate on Feb. 17, 1806, of the will of Abraham Lincoln of Exeter: "administered to Mordecai and Thomas, sons, the widow renouncing." In the same volume, page 204, is record of the estate of "Anne Lincoln, widow, Exeter," administered to her sons Mordecai and Thomas Lincoln, Feb. 25, 1808."
