Mr. Abernathy was married to Miss Ezell, your relative.You wrote before regarding being related through Mason and Harrison.We did correspond previously when we were babes on GenForum "The French Connection."
When I wrote the message to which you are replying I did not and still do not know Mr. Abernathy's given name.I think it is Marion.Marion was a great name after the Rev. War pronounced May-yon. I could just see a man not liking Marion as a biblical female name.The name which I copied in my original message came from "Tennesseans in the Civil War." We definitely have that he went by M. U. Abernathy.
I certainly would like a copy of Nancy's or Ann's tin type.
My husband is related to you. At a funeral a cousin asked of the Rices in Texas.I remember you had asked also a long time ago.Am I mistaken? Charlene Adams Rice
