I appreciate your lengthy post to me, have printed it out and am now carefully going over the information enclosed therein, some of which I had no record of and some of which was I had already presumed to be questionable, considering the lack of sources cited in the book I got it from (Gatewood).
I can well imagine how Robert Gatewood incorrectly listed the children of Julian and Loula (Martin) Abernathy. Unless one has personally done the research (and has a great deal more exact data than Gatewood's book does on almost all of the families he lists), it is quite easy to list a child with two given names as two seperate children. And make other similar mistakes.
There is no need at all to apologize to me for the length of your response. However, you have added to my database some information that I wish more detail on. Since most of the individuals are presently (I presume) still living, I would appreciate it if you contact me directly via email. Click on my name and you will find my email address.
Looking forward to correspond with you and learn more.
