I may be a descendant of Charles & Amelia Abernathy if they had a daughter, Adeline.There is an Adeline Abernathy who marries Edwin Adams on 30 Sept 1842 in Wilson County, TN.I am definitley a descendant of theirs.
The only Abernathy in the county at that time is Charles.But there is a glimpse of another Abernathy in the 1830 Wilson Co., TN census but he is gone by 1840.
In the 1860 census for Wilson Co., there are 2 Adeline Adams and one is living next to Amelia in Dist. 20.The other is living in Dist. 23 which I know to be my Adeline (Edwin no deceased).I suspect there may be only 1 Adeline but she got caught in the census twice (I can't be sure though as the data is slightly different between the 2).
