Abraham Lincoln or Enloe?

And the Abe Lincoln paternity stories continue: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/04/27/969663/-The-Paternity-of-Abraham-Lincoln

Full disclosure: I am the 6th great grandson of the North Carolina Abraham Enloe from the article. The Lincoln-Enloe tradition certainly has been passed down through my family line, and while intriguing and even somewhat compelling, I've never seen enough credible evidence to plant my flag in the Enloe camp.

Visited Merchant's House Museum in NYC today

Its the best-preserved 19th-century house in Manhattan. They're also currently exhibiting Civil War wound photos from the Burns Collection (not quite as gruesome as it sounds, yet quite moving).  I recommend the museum; Google the museum for more info.
