On page 60 of the Arvord M Aberneathy work, the following children are attributed to Miles and Ann (Hoke) Abernathy:
Catherine; C.W. md Mary Kisler; M.C. md Jane Henderson; Jane md George Farrington; Janette md George Hutchinson; John A. killed at Gettysburg; Lockey md Robert McKnight; Susan; Elizabeth; and Nancy A.
I believe Arvord got two differemnt Miles Abernathy families mixed up in his notes: the 10 children of Miles Washington and Ann/Anna (Hoke) Abernathy, formerly of Lincoln Co, NC and later of Calhoun Co, AL are as follows:
Sarah Catharine b&d 1836, in Lincoln Co, NC; Frances Eliza, Mrs T.W. Francis; Anna M., Mrs Daniel P. Lorentz; Macon, d. Jul 1862, Richmond VA; Daniel Hoke, d. bef 1850; Emma, d. bef 1850; Mary Ameliam Mrs Horace Lee Stevenson; Julia Swope, Mrs J. Davidson Smith; Ella Turner, d young; and Caroline Swope, Mrs Watkins.
His entry on that same page which gives the children of Miles' sister Nancy (and husband Peter Forney) omits 4 children (3 married) leading to a total of at least 23 Abernathy descendants in the next generation.
Just because Arvord Abernathy collected a whole lot of data on this extended Abernathy family of ours, please do not take every single bit of it as "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth". Before his death he has admitted to some Abernathy researchers that he did not verify the info given to him by others (a clearly impossible task), and that he "cut corners" in order to get as much data in as little space as possible. Consequently there may be yet more mixups in his work. When his data agrees with other sources, cite it by all means. But when it does not, please try to obtain yet other sources for your facts, so that you may be sure you aren't inadvertantly misleading future researchers of this family.
Case in point: Arvord saved space by using the initial "A" to stand for "Abernathy" in various places in his work and as a result, there are now a lot of databases on the web that list a "Robert A. Abernathy" ancestor when the individual(s) in question is/are found in numerous original documents produced in thier own lifetimes as just "Robert Abernathy", without a middle name or initial. In other words: no proof that they ever had a middle name, much less one that began with an "A". Unsourced information is little more than a myth until someone else can come along behind you and find the same documentation (or better yet, other proof) that is relevant to the data you state as fact.
