Lincoln Stedman (May 18, 1907 – March 22, 1948) was an American silent film actor. He appeared in 81 films between 1917 and 1934. A large fat man, Stedman had a career in films dating back to his boyhood in silent films with his parents. Overweight as a teenager Stedman resembled Roscoe Arbuckle which allowed him to convincingly play adult roles far beyond his years in real life.[1]

He was born in Denver, Colorado and died in Los Angeles, California. He was the son of Marshall Stedman and silent film beauty Myrtle Stedman. He was married to Carol Rohe Stedman. One month before his death of a heart-ailment, his daughter Loretta Myrtle Stedman was born. Lincoln Stedman was buried at the Holy Cross Cemetery in Los Angeles.
