I am researching my aunt's genealogy and I am trying to connect Jesse Abernathy (m Mary Cory) to Robert Abernathy (m Isabelle - b Ireland).Per some info I found on the internet, Jesse is a son of Robert's.
I have found Robert in the following Indiana censuses:1820 Franklin County, 1830 thru 1850 Union County, and 1860 Fayette County.
I have written to both Fayette and Union counties to see if there is a will on file hoping that if there was, it would mention all of his children and that would be my proof.Neither of those counties have a will for Robert.
Jesse was born in 1806 in SC and died in 1873 IN.As he wasn't alive for the 1880 census, I couldn't see the birth locations of his parents to see if it said SC and IRE.Jesse is located in the 1840 thru 1870 Fayette County, IN censuses.
Does anyone have any proof showing that Jesse is a son of Robert's?
