    Default Abraham Lincoln

    Today is the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. This use to be a national holiday but it was canceled along with Washington's birthday to make room on the calendar for the MLK holiday. Sort of ironic.

    I have heard numerous accounts of how Abe Lincoln had Melungeon ancestry, which is usually considered tri-racial - White, Indian, and African. Nowadays with genetic testing I think a lot of these so-called Melungeons have been discovered to have Mediterranean and Middle Eastern DNA. They have Mediterranean diseases apparently.

    I have heard stories of the Spanish dumping shiploads of Gypsies and Sephardic Jews onto the shores of the Southern US. I don't know if that's true or not. Does anyone have any sources about that?

    In any case, I think Lincoln was just ugly. He looks like an ugly British Islander to me. Mostly English, I guess. The site above has pictures of his mother and father. The site says Lincoln looks like his mother mostly, but I disagree. The long face looks like Abe's definitely, but the odd facial features look like they come from his father.

    Lincoln may have suffered from Marfan Syndrom which could have distorted his features near the end of his life. I think he is hard to classify because photography was not that advance until he was middleaged.

    Here's another photo from Wikipedia:



    Without the beard & he doesn't appear so unattrative as he does in most photographs taken later.

    His mother was Scottish and English descent and his father was English descent.
