> Elizabeth, do you think this is John Wesley Abernethy on this 1880 census:
It is, indeed, Ginny! He & Martha were in Union County, NC in 1870, and he is still found 1900 in Mecklenburg County, MorningStar Twp. Sorry, but I don't seem to have census cites for them for any other years and my current database has no additional notes, either, although I do recall collecting some census data on Martha in the years prior to their marriage. I may have some notes in one of the back-ups that haven't been prunned down as yet, but I'm not operating out of any of them if I can possibly avoid it.
