About Mordecai Lincoln, III

(IV) Mordecai (3), son of Mordecai (2) Lincoln, of Exeter, first appears on the tax lists of Berks county in 1754 as "single." March, 1773, conveyances show he had a wife Mary. The Lincolns were prominent in Berks county. Thomas, brother of Mordecai (3), was sheriff of the county, and all owned land. Mordecai was a merchant in Berks county and a man of means. In 1791 he visited his son Benjamin, who prior to 1791 had gone to Fayette county, Pennsylvania. He liked the country so well that on June 29, 1791, he purchased of Isaac Pearce the tract of land called "Discord," containing three hundred and twenty acres. He finally settled in the county himself, and continued his residence until his death in 1812. He had four children: Benjamin, a farmer of Dauphin, Fayette and Greene counties, Pennsylvania; John, went to Virginia; Ann, went to Virginia with John Lincoln; Sarah, of further mention.

(V) Sarah, daughter of Mordecai Lincoln, was born in Berks county, Pennsylvania, and there married John Jones, of Berks county (see Jones).

Mordecai (3) Lincoln and other members of the family are buried in the family burying ground on the old farm which was left to Sarah Jones by her father, Mordecai Lincoln. One of the early "settlers' forts" was built on the tract for protection from the Indians, and the present Shady Grove Park is a part of the same tract. The tract was underlaid with a vein of coal nine feet in thickness, now being worked by the Youngstown Coke Company.
