251. David Turnham to William H. Herndon.

Dale Ind Sept 29th 1866

Mr Herndon.

Yours of the 10th Inst is at hand. I think when the Lincoln's left here, they were Jackson men. I think that Jackson's opposition to the U.S. Bank and the Crisis that followed Caused them to turn. As regards Lincolns Grand Mother & father, I know nothing about them I do not think however, that they ever Came to Indiana. I think from my best recollection that whip Sawed Lumber in 1827 to 1830 was worth about 75 cts per hundred. But I am not positive about that.

The Jason Duncan you speak of I never knew, nor heard of, I believe your questions are answered to the best of my ability. I am still ready to render you any service in my power

Your friend
David Turnham
