The Thomas Lincoln Cemetery, previously known as Gordon Graveyard and Shiloh Cemetery, is the final resting place for many Civil War veterans and for Thomas and Sarah Bush Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln's father and step-mother. A historical marker, placed at the corner of the cemetery, describes Abraham Lincoln's trip to the cemetery in 1861 to visit his father's grave.
