How exciting is this! Arlo Johnson has written a book, but not just any book. This book links certain families of Erath County back to the family of President Abraham Lincoln, which to genealogists is the mother lode of treasure chests!
Dublin’s Janella Hendon has the scoop
The Erath County Genealogical Society is hosting a Book Signing by author, Arlo A. Johnson, on Friday, February 14, 2014 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. at the Dublin Public Library.
The Canadian author traveled to Erath County, Texas in pursuit of his ancestor, Dr. Sarah Palmer, and their living relatives. In his book, The Lincoln Story: Our Family Roots, Mr. Johnson provides genealogical links (to his as well as some Erath County families) to the sixteenth president of the United States.
Shared in the book are family letters, photos, and documentation discovered during the Research. From England, Canada, and the U.S., various locations mentioned include Dublin, Purves, Rising Star, Turnbow, and others of interest to area enthusiasts.
You may be a Lincoln relative and not know it! Stop by to meet Arlo and share stories as he continues his search for Texas relations.
