Elizabeth, your entry mentioned Frances Jane (Franklin) Abernathy. If you will go to www.findagrave.com and bring up Marshall Co. then find the Early Grove United Methodist church entry you will find a Bernard Franklin listed. I entered his dates on that site. There is a woman named Rebecca Franklin who is buried near him who was born in 1776 in N. C. I didn't write her dates down because I took a picture of her marker which is very tall. This cemetery is not very far from the Early Grove Cemetery.
Speaking of Abernathy. McNairy County, TN had some Abernathys who went into that county from Alabama in the early years after the county was established in 1823.
