Signal (Tignal) was my 4th great grandfather. I believe him to be related to Burwell, but have no proof of this. He m. Martha Holmes, on May 8, 1796, in Mecklenburg Co. VA.He is listed as Signal in VIRGINA TAX PAYERS 1782-87, by A.B. Fothergill & J.M.Naugle & inWm & MARY QUART., 26th Vol 1st series, page 254. He & Burwell signed some papers together but I have misplaced my copy. I have a copy of a book, THE ABERNATHY FAMILY, by Elizabeth Denty Abernathy of Paluski, TN & published in 1929.It gives lots of facts but it rambles back & forth so that I can never tell which family is which. It doesn't mention Signal, at least not that I have found.There is also no proof of sources in it so it could only be of use to point where to look for what Abernathy.
