Where Was Abraham Lincoln Really Born?
Hollywood has tapped into the natural beauty of Rutherford County's Chimney Rock and Lake Lure for at least a half dozen movies including Dirty Dancing, and The Last Of The Mohicans. And there's an old story about the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln that would be perfect for the silver screen. And that may be exactly where this story may be headed some day.
There is a story that has been passed down thru the generations that says that Abraham Lincoln may have well indeed been born in a log cabin but it wasn't in Kentucky but on the banks of Puzzle Creek bear Bostic North Carolina about 65 miles west of Charlotte North Carolina.
History books for years have taught that Lincoln was born in a Log Cabin in Hardin County Kentucky on February 12th 1809 after his parents Nancy Hanks and Tom LIncoln were married. But there have always been serious doubt and questions about his birth and the time line associated with his parents marriage and his birth.
The alternate birth story says that as a child, Nancy Hanks the mother of Abraham Lincoln and her mother and sister moved from Virginia to her uncles home near Belmont North Carolina in what is now Gaston County. While there the family fell on hard times and they bound out Nancy in the late 1700's to the Abraham Enloe Family who were prosperous landowners on Puzzle Creek near what is now Bostic North Carolina.
Although she was a bound servant she was treated as a member of the family by the Enloe family and everything was fine until she became pregnant and it was said she was pregnant by Abraham Enloe whose family she had been working for.
The North Carolina legend says that the baby was born in 1805 and that Nancy Hanks named the baby Abraham. The legend says that Nancy and the baby boy Abraham were packed off to live with relatives on the Kentucky Frontier and it was there that Nancy Hanks met and married Tom Lincoln.
People in Kentucky always said that Abraham Lincoln was always a very large boy for his age. It may have very well been that he was several years older than what his mother and father Tom Lincoln claimed. It is a historical fact that Jesse Head the Methodist Minister that married Nancy Hanks and Tom Lincoln always said that the couple had a black haired boy with them at the wedding. If so and it was Abraham Lincoln then there is probably no way Tom Lincoln was the boys father. In all likelihood Abraham Enloe back in North Carolina was probably the boys father and if so then Abraham Lincoln probably was born in that Log Cabin on Puzzle Creek near Bostic North Carolina and not in Kentucky.
I think from everything I've been able to check out that this story may in fact be true. Abraham Lincoln may have been born in North Carolina. There are people right now trying to prove this story to be true.
