"Allegheny Passage by Emmert Bittinger- has one quote regarding Michael Stump of South Branch. In the discussion of the old Abernathy family that lived near the Beaver Run Dunker church, the following: "The wife of the younger William Abernathy was Elizabeth, daughter of John Stump. John was a son of the old South Branch Anabaptist pioneer, Michael Stump. He [Michael] was visited by the Moravian missionaries on Nov. 8, 1749." (p. 358).
Has anyone heard of this William Abernathy who married Elizabeth Stump in what is either Grant or Hardy Co. WV(VA)?
Can you e-mail me direct at email@example.com?
Did you ever hear of any Abernathy's in VA(WV) being Brethren/Dunkards?
P.S. I don't know where Beaver Run Dunker Church is located!
