About Rebecca Morris Lincoln (Flowers)

Rebecca Flowers, daughter of Enoch Flowers and Rebecca Barnard, was born 30 Mar 1720 In Amity Berks Co. PA. Her Father was a Justice of the Peace in Caernavon Twp.

Rebecca first married James Morris son of James and Abigail Rowe, when she was 19. They had one son Jonathan 1739-1816. James died in 1734.

On 5 Jul 1743,Rebecca married John Lincoln. John and Rebecca had nine children:

  • Abraham (Capt. in Rev. War)b.1744
  • Hannah and
  • Lydia twins born,1748
  • Isaac1750
  • Jacob 1751(Lt. in Rev. War fought at Yorktown),
  • John Jr.1755
  • Sarah 1757,
  • Thomas 1761 and
  • Rebecca 1767 probably born in VA married Rimel.

There was not a daughter Elizabeth.

John and Rebecca moved to the Shendoah Valley in about 1767 and settled on 600 acres. John died in 1788 on his Lincoln Homestead and when Rebecca died in 1806 she was laid next to John in the Lincoln Cemetery. D.A.R. erected a momument in John's honor.

On Oct. 11, 2015 the D.A. R restored and repaired the cemetery grounds and held a re-dedication ceremony to honor the Lincoln family who contributed so much to their community. Rebecca and "Virginia John," as he was known, were the greatgrandparents of President Lincoln. Abraham their son and Bathseba were the parents of Thomas. Thomas and Nancy Hanks were the parents of Abe. I am proud to say I am related to Hannah who married John Harrison son of Zebulon and Margaret Cravens from the Harrisonburg Harrisons who came the to the Valley early with a group of 16 family members from Delaware and helped build Augusta and then Rockingham counties.
