From the Paper:

"Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809, on Nolin Creek in Kentucky. His father, Thomas Lincoln, was a poverty-stricken farmer, and his mother Nancy died while Abe was a child. Lincoln spent his childhood learning how ensconced in toiling farmwork, like many of his fellow countrymen at the time. Later on during his Presidential campaign, he and his supporters would exploit this rustic upbringing to show his authenticity and tenacity. Indeed, his birth in Kentucky makes him the first President to be born outside of the original 13 colonies. The family traveled around what was then pioneer areas, in Indiana, Missouri and Illinois. Left with two children to support, Thomas Lincoln remarried Sarah Bush."
