departure from Warrick Co IN

I, LOUELLA ASHLEY, Say that I am the wife of MAT ASHLEY. That I live on the Boonville-Lynnville road six miles north of Boonville, Warrick County Indiana that said farm is known as the old SOLOMON TURPEN farm, that at that time we moved onto said farm there was an old log house where we live now and when we tore down said house we found an old pocketbook behind the window casing upstairs which we now have and in which there was a very old yellowish paper pasted on which was written A LINCOLN AGENT and afterwards in talking with OLD LADY DOWNS a daughter of SOLOMON TURPEN she said that her father lived on that same farm from a early day until his death, and she said that she heard her parents say they knew the LINCOLN'S and that they had on one occasion had bought pocketbooks and tableware and other small articles from them, and has she had remembered it it was when they were on their way to Illinois
