All I know about Frances Jane (Franklin) Abernathy is that she is alleged to have been born 1 May 1821 in Surry County, NC, married David/Daniel Allison Abernathy, probably around 1840, had 9 children, and can be found on the Marshall County MS census for the years 1850, 1860, and 1880.
>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.
I know. I'm presently trying to track some of them down for participation in the Abernathy DNA project.
