Hanks Is Lincoln's Descendant
TOM HANKS is a descendant of former American President and historical hero ABRAHAM LINCOLN.
The movie star admits he's very proud of his links to the man Americans call HONEST ABE.
He says, "The Hanks family is from Kentucky and Tennessee; Abraham Lincoln's mother's name was NANCY HANKS. We have a semi-direct connection to Honest Abe Lincoln."27/10/2004 02:44
