Other Hawaiian Lincolns
In the process of researching a surname, it is very common to discover people or families that may not be of use in your research but may be of assistance to others. Since they are of no interest, it is a common reaction to ignore the find and continue with the search. That is not my philosophy, perhaps saving these bits of data may, at some time, be of assistance to someone, somehow.
While researching the Lincoln surname in Hawaii it became obvious that there were Lincoln families that needed to be studied, as a part of the process of elimination. As this process progressed, the data thus accumulated, was retained, to the point that it changed the title of Volume II from a family history of Lorenzo Lincoln to a report on the Lincolns of Hawaii (naturally with the emphasis on Lorenzo’s family). In the book, this “ancillary” material was organized into five chapters. The first two chapters listed below are covered in more detail in Other Early Lincolns Settlers in Hawaii.
George Walter Lincoln and Descendants
George Walter was the second known Lincoln to establish a family in Hawaii (1876). He was a well-known builder who had four children. His two sons left the island, leaving no family. One daughter did have family in Hawaii, the other left for California. His family is studied by Lawrence Roberts, his aunt Mrs Phyllis (Martin) Stephenson, and several other family members who have graciously shared data. See Reminiscences #27.
Lyman Putnam Lincoln and Descendants
Lyman seems to be the third Lincoln family to settle on Hawaii (1880). He married and had a daughter and three sons. Lincoln descendants of Lyman are still residents there. In fact, Lyman and Lorenzo’s families are distantly connected by marriage. Richard Souther, now deceased, was a well-known Hawaiian genealogist and a descendant of Lyman.
Unlinked Hawaiian Lincolns
This chapter contains information about Lincolns who appear to be descendants of Lorenzo. They are placed in this chapter because of a lack of definitive proof.
Additional Hawaiian Lincoln families
This chapter is devoted to individual Lincolns or Lincoln families that have been identified in the process of doing research for the three “early” Lincoln families. As far as is known, these Lincolns are not connected to the first three Lincoln families of Hawaii.
Bits and Pieces
As the title implies, This Chapter serves to log informational scraps that do not seem to fit in the preceding four chapters.
