I found a J.T. Abernathy in Fayette County, TN. for the 1860 US Census.Could this be him with a "T" initial rather than the presummed "H" initial?I tried every way possible to bring this person up on Heritage Quest from N.C., TN. to MS and this is all I came up with:
Abernathy JT 52 m Farmer born in NC Ann 42 f E.W. 20 f WM17 m Belger 15 f AU?12 f Fanny8 f Davey6 m
Do you know who this family belongs to if not him? I found that Abernathy was spelled Abernathey on the Census often.
