Nathaniel Grigsby – Lincoln’s Friend

Nathaniel Grigsby was a dear friend of Abraham Lincoln. 

In 1860, he was living in Norborne. He wrote to Lincoln and received an appointment as Republican Precinct Committee Man. He placed Lincoln's name on the 1860 ballot.

Read the rest of the story by Trish on Nathaniel’s Find-a-Grave memorial.

  1. That is quite neat to see. Each year I read to my class the fictionalized account of young Abe Lincoln, "Abe Lincoln Gets His Chance" in which Nate is mentioned.
