The Life of Robert Todd Lincoln
Harlan-Lincoln House to host Open House
The Harlan-Lincoln House was built in 1876 by U.S. Senator James Harlan. Harlan's daughter, Mary, married Robert Todd Lincoln, son of President Abraham Lincoln. The Lincolns brought their three children to spend summers here in the late 1870's and 1880's. Later, the Robert Todd Lincolns owned the home, added a wraparound front porch, and spent extended periods of time here.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: His Ancestry and The Extinction of His Line
Robert Todd Lincoln Beckwith, President Lincoln's great grandson and last descendant, married three times and lived to be 84 years of age. As was the case with Lincoln's two other great grandchildren, he did not have any children thus ending the Lincoln line of descendants.
