Staab Family Livery:

The Staab Family is a proud supporter of the effort to recreate President Abraham Lincoln’s Hearse that carried him to his final place of honor in Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, Illinois.  Our Family thought it was of great importance to become a part of this special project to honor our 16th President.

By embracing the 2015 Lincoln Funeral Re-enactment, we are creating an opportunity to re-claim the value of funeral service and the value of the funeral procession.

President Lincoln had the largest funeral to date with an estimated eight million people participating in or witnessing the procession as it traveled across the country to its final stop in Springfield, Illinois.  As the work continues to recreate this special funeral event, we hope people will remember the responsibility and obedience President Lincoln had to the people of this country.

We hope the Staab Family mission to “Remember, Educate & Heal” resonates with others…as the world is not aware that it will be reconnected once again to the “Healing Spirit of Abraham Lincoln.”
