      From the "Worcester Daily Spy," (Worcester, MA), 15 Dec 1896, in part:
      Edward Winslow Lincoln, the chairman of Worcester's parks commission, died at his home....
      Edward Winslow Lincoln was a member of one of Worcester's oldest, best known and most illustrious families.

      His grandfather, Levi Lincoln, was graduated at Harvard College in 1772, and was attorney general in President Jefferson's cabinet in 1801....
      Edward Winslow Lincoln's father was also named Levi Lincoln. He was graduated at Harvard in 1802, and was successively speaker of the Massachusetts house of representatives, lieutenant governor, judge of the supreme court and for nine years from 1825 to 1834, was governor of the state. He was also the first mayor of Worcester.
      His brother, Enoch Lincoln, was governor of Maine at the same time Levi was governor of Massachusetts....

      He had four brothers, all of whom are dead.
      Levi entered the navy and died on the Brazil station in 1846.
      William S. was for many years one of Worcester's most esteemed citizens. He was a genral in the Union army.
      D. Waldo was killed in a railroad accident at new London while witnessing a Harvard-Yale boat race. He was at that time president of the Boston and Albany Railroad.
      George was killed at the battle of Buena Vista....
      (Here follows extensive narrative about his business and social activities.)

      He had been twice married, his first wife being Sarah Rhodes Arnold of Providence.
      Of the four children, three died in infancy, and one son, John Waldo Lincoln, is a civil engineer on the Pacific coast.

      Mr. Lincoln's second wife was Miss Catherine Von Weber Marston, and from this union there were seven children, six of whom are living -- Anne Marston, Mrs. M. L. Bogert, Adeline Seaver and Helen; and two sons, Marston and Pelham Winslow.
