It appears that the reason why Abraham Enloe was thought to have been the father of Abraham Lincoln was because no marriage record could be found for Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks. It was found and can be viewed on the Family Search website. They married in Kentucky and had 3 children, all born there. Abraham Enloe lived in North Carolina. Surely there were other people with the names Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks? Abraham's parents couldn't be the only couple in the whole of the USA with those names.
Abraham himself shows them as his parents in a Family Record he wrote. It can be read online in "The Complete Works of Abraham Lincoln" Volume 2.

I wouldn't buy it, what pages I read are all misstatements and erroneous information.
