Dear Karen, Meeting a new cousin is one aspects I enjoy about genealogy. I descend from Elizabeth (Clayton) Abernathy's brother Charles Clayton. Elizabeth's parents are George and Nancy (?) Clayton. Her paternal grandparents are John and Elizabeth (?) Clayton. Her siblings are Charles Clayton, Brittain Clayton, John Clayton, Mary Clayton, (unknown) Clayton, and Susanna Clayton. Elizabeth's sister Susanna Clayton married John Abernathy perhaps William's brother or cousin? All of this info comes from Bill Clayton's book, "Southern Heritage A Clayton Family Genealogy", and his website http://www.gower.net/bclaytonhis e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.orgI would be very interested in having a copy of any info on the descendants of William and Elizabeth (Clayton) Abernathy to add to my database. If I can be of any further assistance please e-mail me at email@example.com Thanks, Your cousin Randy.
