Eleanor "Ellie" Abernethy, daughter of William Abernethy and Sarah Melvina Rockett, born 1808, Lincoln County, North Carolina, married on 18 Aug 1825 in Jefferson County, Alabama, Samuel Vance Abernathy, born 1806, North Carolina, died after Aug 1860. Eleanor died before 1860. Both are buried at the Abernathy Cemetery near Troy, Pontotoc County, Mississippi. They moved to Mississippi in 1849 from near Elyton, Alabama. They are listed in the 1850 census of Pontotoc County, but Samuel's middle initial was misunderstood and reads "B" instead of "V."
Their daughter Jerusha (Martha Jerusha) was my wife's great-grandmother. How do you relate to this family?
