Abraham Lincoln's mother, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, gave live birth to Sarah and Abraham. They were the only children living in the cabin until Abraham's mother died.

Abraham was nine when his mother died. Nancy Lincoln and her parents (caregivers), Elizabeth Sparrow, and Thomas Sparrow all died within days of each other. The two children the Sparrows were caring for moved in with Thomas Lincoln. Now, there were four children living in the cabin. Thomas was caring for Sarah, Abraham, Dennis and Sophie.

Two years later Thomas remarried. His new wife brought with her three children. When Abraham was 13, these children were living in the same cabin: Sarah, Abraham, Dennis, Sophie, Sarah Elizabeth, Matilda, and John.

When Abraham was from 13 to 19 years old, there were seven children living in the cabin.
