I am from the line - Buckner Abernathy, James Abernathy, Christenberry H. Abernathy, William Edmond Abernathy, Henry Franklin Abernathy, Benjamin Ralph Abernathy, then me Beverly Abernathy Duke.
I have quite a bit of information from Buckner down but I am hung on finding more about Buckner, do you have anything on him.
I live near Gainesville are you anywhere close, if so maybe we could get together and I would be more than happy to share what I have.I have ran into several of our relatives on the internet but not many who want to meet and share.If your interested you can let me know.
Hope this bit of info will help you, and hope to hear from you soon.
