message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I got this information from the Gaston-Lincoln Libray Live on line which is under Heritage Quest. It has census records, books, publications and Revolution War records. It is available in N.C. but I don't know about other states. You could call your library and see. They will give you a password and you go under your local library website. It is under N.C. Live (this is why I don't know if other states have it or not) and then click on Heritage Quest. I think I typed in Abernethy's Ferry in Mecklenburg County and was given several book choices. I found the History of South Fork Association and was amazed at how many pages of Abernethys, Forneys, Rozells, Johnstons, etc. were listed. Mr. Graham that wrote the book I am sure is a descendent of the Grahams of Lincoln County, N.C. that was a governor of N.C. As long as you state the source, I don't know why you couldn't use this book. As for James Abernethy, I took that comment as him being very heavy. I have more I am posting from this book.
