Book title where an object was passed down ending with Lincoln.

Years ago I read a fictional book in which a small object (I don't remember what. Maybe a ring? ) was passed down through several generations, being owned by some people that were good and some that were bad until it ended up with Lincoln's father, Tom, and his name in the book was written as Linkhorn. That's not much to go on and I don't remember if it was an adult or youth book. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Was it Path of the King by John Buchan?

Agree with pattern juggler, it sounds like Chapter 13, The Last Stage, from The Path of the King.

That must be it. Thank you. I want to read it again but had no idea what it was called.
