A triangular piece of limestone has been donated to the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Park.
The stone is believed to be the original grave marker for Thomas Lincoln Jr. – the younger brother of Abraham Lincoln. It will be unveiled at a Feb. 12 ceremony in the Visitor Center at the Park.
Local Attorney Carl Howell Jr., a longtime collector of Lincoln memorabilia, came into possession of the marker in the 1970s. He displayed it at his family’s Nancy Lincoln Inn adjacent to the Park.
