Dec Joel Abernathy & Margaret Melvinia aka Viney Allison. the Abernathy / Westmoreland Reunion has been held at the state park just above Helen Ga the 4th weekend of Sept for the last 68 or so years. it was started by Joel's daughers Martha Abernathy White, her sisters Olive Abernathy Ledford, & Alice Abernathy Westmoreland.It was either Joel & his Father that sold the land of the state park to the State of GA for $1.00 per acre. There wason cousin that died in the Tornado that went through Ga in the early 1900's & Ihave other stories gathered at the Runions but I haven't worked on this side of the family too much yet because I been working on the decendents of Martha & her husband Hezekiah P White, My Family.The reunion is Dying & we are desperately trying to keep it alive.
