Looking for the parents of Amy Abernathy, born June 1856 in Appanoose County, IA. 1900 census says Amy's parents were from IL. 1870 Appanoose Co., IA census has a James Abernathy married to Zarilda. I found out this is Zarilda Wakefield and they were from St. Clair co., IL. One of their daughters in the census is Emma (same age as Amy). Wondered if Emma and Amy could be the same person? Any help greatly appreciated!
