Your reference to Sarah Fry McCrory Abernathy Abernathy Carlton drew my attention.I did not have anything in my files concerning Sarah, except for her marriage to Seaborn McCrory/McCrary, who died 1840 in Giles Co., TN
I have just recently found her in the 1860 Greene Co., MO census.I should say I had a strong feeling that it was her, but did not have a record of which Abernathy she might have married.Could you share any information pertaining to her and her marriages / names of children?
Sarah is the sister of my ggg-grandmother, Elizabeth Fry McQuigg.

I wondered how Sarah Lucy McQuigg came to be in TX and would marry Joseph Addison Clark, who with his brother Randolph and father Joseph Addison Clark established AddRan College in Thorp Springs, TX.This college evolved into what is now Texas Christian University.
If Sarah Abernathy moved to TX, her niece Sarah McQuigg went with her, as well as her brother Jesse Young McQuigg.
