> The marriage of Rebeacca Fowler was to a different Smith Abernathy.
This not my Abernathy lineage: mine is further west. So if I erred, it was unknowingly.
I've a problem in a different Abernathy line more closely related to my own. It apparently involves two different wives of the same man, and son attributed to 1st wife being born 6 yrs after marriage to 2nd. Both marriages clearly documentable, also birth/death dates of son, but is it two Abernathy men of the same given name, or only one? Given the fact that there are so very many Abernathies in various related lines existing in the same geographic area, in the same relative time period, having the same given names, sometimes it's not easy eliminating the confusion factor.
