My ancestor David Wilson Abernathy, b. 1767 (Mecklenburg Co., NC?) married Ruth Vance, b. 1774 Mecklenburg Co. settled in Jefferson Co., Ala. They had 8 children, 5 of whom I know the idenity. The eldest son, James, b. 1800-10 married Nancy Coker in Jefferson Co. in 1828. Your connection with Abernathy & Wilsons was too good a coincidence to pass up. Do you know anything of this David W. Abernathy?
