- Beechland Lincoln Markers | The Lincoln Foundati
Beechland Lincoln Markers Washington County historian, Miss Olive Walker, during the 1950s era, identified significant Beechland historic sites at which wood plaques were placed. One of the goals of the Lincoln Foundation is to replace these deteriorated plaques with permanent bronze markers. 01 The Housekeeping Cabin Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks Cabin in which they went to “Housekeeping" in 1805. Their first child, Nancy, who died in infancy was born here and is buried near the site of the cabin which was moved to Harrodsburg about 1912. Coordinates: Latitude 37.77236 Longitude -85.19524 02 The Lincoln Spring This spring which still runs today was the water source for Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks when they moved here in 1805. Then later, after their marriage in 1806, Nancy and Thomas lived in the Housekeeping cabin with Sara and Abraham until Abraham was about 18 months old. A young neighbor, William Hardesty, was hired to stay with Nancy while Thomas was away. The cabin was located approximately 100 feet east of the spring. Coordinates: Latitude 37.77236 Longitude -85.19524 03 General Area of the murder of Captain Abraham Lincoln This is also the site of the Pioneer Cemetery where some eighty pioneers are said to be buried, including Captain Abraham Lincoln, grandfather of President Lincoln, and Naomi Shipley Mitchell, aunt of the President. Coordinates: Latitude 37.6488 Longitude 85.21018 Board member, Mike Crain, is pictured with the historical plaque that marks the general area where the grandfather of President Lincoln was murdered. The tree lined background is the site of the Pioneer Cemetery which rests on the precipice above the Beechfork River. It is here that Captain Abraham Lincoln was buried in 1788. 04 The Mitchell Cemetery Daniel Mitchell, son of Robert and Naomi Shipley Mitchell built a cabin near the banks of the Beechfork after his marriage to Jane Berry in 1794. Jane was a companion and cousin to Nancy Hanks. The log home still stands today, although covered by a modern structure. The nearby fenced cemetery contains the graves of Daniel Mitchell, his wife, Jane, and four of their children. Coordinates: Latitude 37.72873 Longitude 85.19183 05 The Sarah Mitchell Thompson Burial Site The Pleasant Grove Presbyterian Church Cemetery is the burial site of Sarah Mitchell Thompson. This church was established in 1833 after Beechland pioneers moved from their meeting house located along the banks of the Beechfork near the Pioneer Cemetery. Sarah Mitchell Thompson, first cousin and best friend of Nancy Hanks Lincoln, lived for five years with Nancy in the Richard Berry, Sr. home. Her grave is located front center in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery. Coordinates: Latitude 37.72873 Longitude 85.19183 06 The Richard Berry Cabin The Richard Berry Jr cabin, a double hewn log cabin fronted the road a short distance from the ford at Beech Fork. One of the largest houses in Washington County, it was listed in 1989 on the National Register of Historic Houses. Sadly, Washington County made no effort to save the historic cabin and in 2006 the owner advertised the cabin for sale and it was purchased by Jerry and Linda Bruckeimer and relocated to their Walnut Grove Estate in nearby Bloomfield-Nelson County, Kentucky.

- Washington Co. Kentucky History | The Lincoln Foundati
Washington County Kentucky History The Heart of the Lincoln Legacy Washington County was the first county created by the Kentucky State Legislature and named for the first U.S. President, George Washington. Established in 1792 from land given by Nelson County, the county seat at Springfield is home to the oldest Kentucky courthouse completed in 1816. This building now houses the Lincoln Legacy Museum. Washington County citizens take pride in the historical sites found in Beechland, an area five miles north of Springfield where President Lincoln's grandfather, Captain Abraham Lincoln, brought his family in 1782. He was in the process of purchasing by Title Bond the westernmost 200 acres of the 600 acres of the Richard Berry tract, when he was murdered by a Native American in 1788. He is buried in the Pioneer Cemetery near the Beechfork River. Captain Abraham's son, Thomas, married Nancy Hanks in 1806 at the Francis Berry home in Beechfork. Their second child, Abraham Lincoln, the 16th U.S. President was likely born at Beechland where his parents married and where they lived until Abraham was eighteen months old.
