Lincoln Family
Leslie's Illustrated, 18 December 1860
Leslie's magazines were published from 1855 - 1922

Introduction to the Family of the President-elect
These two sons of Lincoln did not survive to adulthood.
Lincoln's second son, Edward Baker Lincoln (Eddie),
born in 1846, died February 1, 1850.
Lincoln's son, William "Willie" Wallace Lincoln (above left)
was born on December 21, 1850, and died of a fever
at the White House on February 20, 1862.
Thomas "Tad" Lincoln (above right), born on April 4, 1853,
survived his father, but died of heart failure at age 18 on July 16, 1871.
The children's deaths had a lasting, devastating
effect on their mother, Mary Todd Lincoln.
An older son, Robert Todd Lincoln, not in this illustration
(He was attending Harvard College) was born in 1843 and lived
a successful prominent life in law, business, and government
even though it is said that he lived in his father's shadow.
He attended the dedication of his father's memorial
building in May 1922 at age 78 and died in 1926.
