Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving, Vicky.
Per the Tweed lineage book written by Diana Chesser, here is the information you are looking for:

Julia E. Keller married Abner "Little Abner G." Tweed about 1868 in Greene County, Tennessee. She was born about 1849 in Greene County, Tennessee to Leonard & Rebecca Roberts Keller.
Julia died in October of 1921.
Abner "Little Abner G." Tweed was born about 1847 in Yancey County, N.C. to Reuben and Caroline Shelton Tweed and he died in 1929.
The reason he was called "Little Abner G." was because he was named after his uncle, Abner Grainger Tweed.
Abner & Julia are buried in unmarked graves at Walker Cemetery, Paint Creek, Greene County, Tennessee.
Their children were:

Aaron Johnson Tweed (May,1870-Feb.14,1930)
America Elizabeth (Maggie) Tweed (Sept.8,1871-Nov.19,1916)
Sarah Ann Caroline Tweed (May,1874-Jan.2,1923)
Mary Jane Tweed (November,1874-May 5,1932)
William Warren Tweed (November 19,1877-October 8,1958)
Fanny Tweed (Born 1880)
Rachel Tweed (1884 - May 12, 1970)
John Tweed (May 6,1887-November 4,1952)
Martha Tweed (1891-March,1921)
Myrtle Tweed (November 3,1892-April 3,1949)

The first 5 children were born in Madison County, N.C.
All 10 died in Greene County, TN.

Hope this information helps!
