Ralph C. Lincoln, 11th generation Lincoln, 3rd cousin of Abraham Lincoln

If you're shopping at Vitamin World in Johnstown's Galleria mall, you might notice the assistant Manager Ralph C. Lincoln and his strong resemblance to Abraham Lincoln. Many people have told him "you look just like Abe."   He smiles and replies, "Which one? There are several Abrahams in the family."

Meet Ralph C. Lincoln from Johnstown, Pennsylvania, 11th generation Lincoln, 3rd cousin of Abraham Lincoln. Isn't DNA amazing!!
Can you see the resemblance?

Ralph C. Lincoln writes:
"My name is Ralph C Lincoln and I am honored to be an 11th generation Lincoln. Who also shares the same Great-Grandfather as one of America's greatest Presidents. If you visit Fayette County in Pennsylvania, you will find a small, obscure cemetery where members of the Lincoln family are buried, including Abraham Lincoln’s great uncle Mordecai, who served in the revolutionary war, and his son Benjamin. Mordecai Lincoln is my 5th generation great grandfather, which makes me a third cousin of the President.   I have continued to live and work in the ancestral home of Southwestern Pennsylvania where, as a Lincoln Presenter, I can pay tribute to these great men in my family who have shaped the history of our country I am proud member of organizations dedicated to bringing Abraham Lincoln to life, to educate, entertain, inspire and honor his words and works:" - Ralph C. Lincoln
