I have a 1926 obit for Ora Abnertha Holt (wife of Porter Foote Holt) which reveals that she was the daughter of the late Rev. Thomas Abnernathy.I have no other information on this family, but thought you might like to have a transcription of the obituary:
Athens Courier, August 1926 MRS. PORTER HOLT – Mrs. Porter Holt of this place, died Sunday night at her residence after an illness of some months.She recently returned from a hospital in Nashville and it was felt by her friends that she was on the way to recovery, but her physical condition could not withstand the ravages of disease and her death resulted.She was a daughter of the late Rev. Thomas Abernathy and was an excellent woman. Her remains were taken to Wessly chapel near Shoalford Monday for burial, followed to her last resting place by many relatives and sorrowing friends.She is survived by her husband and an attractive young daughter and a little son, several sisters and brothers and other near relatives.(researcher’s note:Mrs. Porter Foote Hall was the former Ora Abernathy.)
Do you know of anyone who can give me more information about the children of Porter Foot Holt and Ora Abnernathy?
