Abraham Lincoln had a connection to Spencer County that few people know about and although it may seem slight, we’ll take it.
“Honest Abe” had a first cousin and second cousin in the county, who are buried in Saint Benedict Catholic Cemetery near Settler’s Trace Road.
Margaret J. (Lincoln) O’Nan was his first cousin and Jane M. (O’Nan) Campbell was his second cousin. The All Saints Catholic Church in Taylorsville was originally Saint Benedict.
