Captain Horatio Alonzo Lincoln was a direct decedent of Abraham Lincoln

Presidential Descendants
Have a Great-Great-Grand Time

NEW YORK, April 30, 1989. 
Horatio Lincoln was among Lincoln relatives descended from the President's uncle, and seated at a table with Eleanor Axson Sayre, Woodrow Wilson's granddaughter, a curator emeritus at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. ''Yours was a Democrat, and mine was a Republican,'' said Captain Horatio A. Lincoln, who is retired from the United States Navy. ''But,'' replied Mrs. Sayre, ''he was a liberal Republican.''

The occasion was the bicentennial of the first President's first inauguration, about 100 First Descendants got together for breakfast at Fraunces Tavern on Broad and Pearl Streets, to discuss who was related to whom. It was the first time that so many presidential kin - direct and collateral, from George Washington's great-great-great-great-great-great-niece to Ronald Reagan's third cousin, representing almost every one of the country's 40 former Presidents - had been brought together in one place.
