Was Abraham Lincoln a Tar Heel?

Record #:
During his presidency, many claims were made toward the paternity of Abraham Lincoln. Such claims suggest Thomas Lincoln was not the true father, but rather a man named Richard Inloe (Inlow, Enlow, Enloe). This article only outlines these claims that tie Lincoln’s family to North Carolina, while giving no evidence stringent enough to sway historians.
