This is the original grave marker that has been discovered for Tommy Lincoln. Analysis of the letters "T" and "L" carved into the stone match exactly with other engraved letters (in cabinetry) of Abraham Lincoln's father, Thomas.

President Lincoln's baby brother.

Tommy Lincoln was buried originally in the Redmond family cemetery on a knoll overlooking the Lincoln's farm near Hodgenville, Kentucky. A Boy Scout troop donated a new marker for the child in 1959.

The original gravemarker for Thomas Lincoln Jr. is on display at the Nancy Lincoln Inn next to the Birthplace.
