Parrish Family in Panola Co 1838-1900

I think this Parrish family in Panola Co is my connection.
I am hoping to find other researchers to learn more about this line.
Here is what I know:
1846 Poll list shows 3 Parrishes in Panola Co.
Samuel C Parrish
William G Parrish
George W Parrish

1850 Census Panola Co
Parrish William G 59 NC
Elizabeth 49 VA
Washington 25 TN
James 23 TN
Mary Jane 21 TN
**William 18 TN ** this is the one I think I may be related to
Dinah 13 TN
Thomas 11 TX
Casandra 6 TX
Pamela 4 TX

1860 Census Panola Co
Parrish Elizabeth C 60 VA
William 25 TN
Diana 22 TN
Thomas 21 TX
Casandra 15 TX
Thomas L 5 TX

In addition to the Parrish line I am interested in any information on Abernathy.

The only record I have of my William Parrish is 1870 census in Kinney county. There he is listed with his much younger wife and new son, James and with a G.F. Abernathie aged 62 born in Missouri living in the household.

I did notice a JW Abernathy next to the Parrish families on some land records in Panola Co. But have been unable to connect the two conclusively.

Any information would be appreciated.

On a side note, my William Parrish is gone by the next census and his young wife has remarried. She has two sons by William Parrish but I have never found record of what happened to him.

In the book, Fugitives from Justice 1878 in the Panola county section there is a listing for :
Wm Parrish Robbery; commited 1867 indicted Apr 1868

Oh my. If that is my William then it would explain why he was never seen again.
