> I have a William D A Abernathy born 1833 in Mecklenburg, NC. He married my Isabella/Arabella (censuses show 2 diff > spellings) Cole in 1860. You show a Miles B. on this page. Would they be related?
I have your William with wf Isabella Cole in my database, but not as yet linked with parents nor children.
I believe I have all the known children of the Miles B. Abernathy from that 1840 Mecklenburg census, but none of his sons were named William.
I am not yet clear as to how many siblings Miles had, nor who they all were, so I do not yet know if the two are related.
I have quite a number of male Abernathys born in that general area of NC in my database whom I have not yet gotten sorted out and correctly linked. One of them, clearly, would be your William, but I am far from sure which of several possible sets of parents were his family.
