States: North Carolina: Lincoln
Two Abernathys moved to Jefferson Co., Ala. abt 1818 from Lincoln Co., NC. David Abernathy, b. abt 1767 NC with wife Ruth, b. abt 1779. I believe children were James, Samuel Vance, David Wilson (Jr?), Mary, Martha, and others. David and Ruth sold their land in Jefferson Co. Nov. 17, 1837 and moved to Miss. William Abernathy, b. 1784-88 Lincoln Co., NC and wife Sarah Melvina Rockett, married Mar 26, 1807 in Lincoln Co. Children were Eleanor, who married Samuel Vance Abernathy, Sterling (Starling), Martha, Richard Rockett, Nancy, James Turner, Robert Burns, Betty, Mary Ann, William Jackson, and Amanda E. William was the son of Robert and Ann Abernathy.
Anyone who knows of David's parents, or how David and William were kin, I would love to have that information.
Ruth may have been a Vance?
