Benjamin Abernethy -- Rutherford, William Abernethy, Maggie Griffon, NC
The information is back from the SSDI, my G-grandfather's (Benjamin Franklin Abernethy) father's name is William, and he married Maggie (Margaret) Griffon.

Does any of this sound familiar?
Other information is pointing to a very strong connection with Rutherford College, "Owl Hollow" School, and areas around Rutherford, Excelsior, Hickory, and the Abernethy Methodist Church.
Below is some other links I recently learned of-- online photos of Robert Laban, and William Ellis Abernethy/Abernathy.
I thought you might be interested in looking at them.
