Jim Likens and Pat Gourley,

Also in the Buffalo Hart community is another Likens family group headed by Issac Likens, per the 1870 census. The VanDoren relations are located near by, thus all these likens and VanDorens should be related.
Question I ask is if any one has information on these families?
One tib bit of information that lead me here was that a granddaughter(?) of Issac and Kesiah Likens ( some educated assumptions being made here), Sarah Burke, born in Sangamon County, 1854, had a family tradition that Abraham Lincoln had been a guest in there parents home and that her Grandma Likens had made his first pair of cloth trousers. truth or fancy (?). But there is a Kesiah Likens on the rolls of the Little Pigeon Church in Spenser County, Indiana at the same time the Lincolns were members and Likens are found in Macon County when the Lincolns moved there. And a likens married a Hanks ,(cousins to the Lincolns).
Does any one have any evidence to support any of this?
