JONATHAN LINCOLN was born in Edmeston, Otsego, NY, on May 19, 1827. In 1844, he moved with his family to Winslow, Stephenson, IL.

He married LODUSKEY FACELIA KENNEDY, May 10, 1850. She was born at Eaton, Lorain, OH, Mar. 10, 1832, and, in 1845, came by way of the Great Lakes to Elkhorn, Walworth, WI. Two years later, the family moved to Winslow. She remained under the home roof until her marriage to JONATHAN, in 1850.

Together, they settled on the old homestead, and farmed extensively until resting from their labors. He was a man of great energy and industry, and at the time of his death owned 500 acres of valuable land with good improvements, including three sets of farm buildings. He took an intelligent interest in the welfare of his fellow citizens, and was a consistent and valued member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

In her early life, LODUSKEY was very energetic taking an active interest in church work and social events in the community, and was ever ready to help in sickness and trouble. She was an active member of the W.C.T.U. for many years.

When the family moved into their new home in 1852, the largest room was reserved for religious services and was used as such until a larger place could be secured. She was for many years a steward in the Christian Hollow church and a member of the official board which recommended the minister. In early years the Christian Hollow church was privileged to great religious influence in the community.

"The remains were laid to rest in the little cemetery across from the church, where she had followed the majority of her loved ones to their last resting place".

In the 1860 U. S. Census, JONATHAN's real estate holdings were reported at $1,000. They increased to $25,000 by 1870, at which time he was described as a "retired" farmer at age 43.

JONATHAN's parents, JONATHAN and RUTH, were living with JONATHAN and LODUSKEY at the time of the 1860 census. JONATHAN's older brother, William, was also living nearby. All of them were living in Section 19 of Winslow township. In 1880, LODUSKEY's portion of the original acreage, was 94 acres. William owned 340 acres at that time.

LODUSKEY married second on Aug. 28, 1878, Samuel Crandall, of Rhode Island. He was born Apr. 16, 1825. Samuel had two children by his first marriage, Adelia and Caddie. Samuel died, Aug. 18, 1899. LODUSKEY continued to live at the Lincoln homestead until 1918, after which time she lived with her daughter, Nettie May, in Lena, IL.
