A family tree at Ancestry.com says that Robert Lee Abernethy married Florence Finger. Robert, born April 1864, son of John and Martha Abernethy. John and Martha are in the Mecklenberg Co., NC, census of June 1, 1880, with children: Willey W., 18, Robert L., 16, Henry, 14, Franklin, 10, Coleman, 7, Mary J, 4, and John H, 2.
In the 7 June 1900 census for Gaston Co., NC, River Bend district:
Robert L. Abbernathy, head, b. Apr 1864, age 36, married 15 yrs, farmer
Florence Abbernathy, wife, b. Aug 1859, age 39
Ella Abbernathy, b. Dec 1886, age 13
Ruben Abbernathy, son, b. Dec 1889, age 10
Oral Abbernathy, son, b. Dec 1894, age 5
Julian Abbernathy, son, b. Dec 1897, age 3
By April 23, 1910, at River Bend, Gaston Co., NC, Mrs. Abernethy is a widow:
F. Mary Abernathy, head, widow, age 51, farming
Rhuben F. Abernathy, son, 21
Oral D. Abernathy, son, 16
Julian C. Abernathy, son, 13
By the 1920 census, it appears that Reuben married and is living in Delaware Co., Chester, Pennsylvania, with his wife, daughter, and brother Julian C. in the home.
Also, by the 1920 census for Davidson Co., NC, Thomasville, it appears that John H. Abernethy (son of Robert and Florence) is married and a minister in Thomasville.
I wonder whether Robert L. Abernethy is buried in Gaston Co., NC?
All of this info will need to be double-checked.
Hope it is helpful.
