This is not my direct line and I have not researched it thoroughly, however my database notes have that Smith Aberanathy Sr was a son of John and Lucy (?) Abernathy of VA. Susannah's maiden name was Sims, and she was daughter of Nathaniel Sims and Ann Harwell, who was a daughter of 'Little' Samuel Harwell. Ann (Harwell) Sims was last found, so I understand, in 1807 in Wake Co, NC. 'Little' Samuel Harwell's will is dated 30 Oct 1793 in Lincoln (now Catawba) County, NC. I have conflicting information on children, and cannot make any reliable assessment in that regard as yet. Sorry.
