Many of Abraham Lincoln's relatives remain in Kentucky, including Nina Warren Clooney, the mother of actor George Clooney.

She is among numerous descendants of Lincoln's family who are expected to gather in the small Boyle County community of Forkland, near Perryville, on March 1 for the opening of a Lincoln Museum at the Forkland Community Center.

Clooney, a descendant of Lincoln's grandmother, Lucey Shipley Hanks Sparrow, and wife of media personality Nick Clooney, will join the others related to the famous family in genealogical discussions in the Lincoln Room of the center as part of the national Lincoln Bicentennial observance.
