Eliza and Mathew Abernathy s son Henery is my direct line but I am related to all of them, lol. Sorry I couldnt help me. Be to be more serious, Henry Abernathy and his wife Alicy Caroline Graves, they married Dec 24 1952 Giles Co, Tn. Thier son Robert C Abernathy and his wife Rachal H Ryland , they marrried Dec 10, 1874 Morgan Co, Al. Thier daughter Myrtle Y Abernathy who married William Coffman Oct 22, 1899 Limestone Co., Al. etc etc One of my mystries is finding exactly when and where Rachal Ryland Abernathy died. The last cenus with her in it was 1880 , she was with husband, childern and Robert s parents in Giles Co, Tn. On Jan 31, 1882 she gave birth to thier last child, my great grandma Myrtle Y Abernathy..trust me when I say there is some confussion just where the birth took place. Robert Abernathy re married in 1889. Oh, the 1880 cenus lists Rachal as Henry s daughter it SHOULD read DAUGHTER IN LAW , Tachal and her sibbling s were all born and rasied in Morgan Co, Al. I have no record but SUSPECT Rachal and Robert met thru Rachal s father Nelson Ryland, who was a Stone Mason as latter Robert was too. I SUSPECT Nelson was teaching Robert the trade and Robert fell in love with the lovely Rachal..ONLY A THEROY...in any case my mystery Take Care, MISS ROBIN
