Abstract:
James H. Cathey of Sylva, North Carolina wrote and published a book in which he attempts to prove that President Abraham Lincoln was born in western North Carolina. Quoting interviews and letters, Cathey argues that Lincoln’s mother, Nancy Hanks, became pregnant as a servant girl in the home of Abraham Enloe, located in what is now Swain County. This article discusses Cathey’s case, and provides background on Hanks and the Enloe family.
