I sent you two messages with file attached. The first should be dated Friday, September 11, 2009 6:33 AM, the 2nd Friday, September 11, 2009 8:34 PM. Both had same subject: ""
If you don't have the attached file (james-e_cox.RTF),certified virus-free by yahoo's anti-virus test, then you need to complain to your ISP or perhaps get another email address with Gmail or Yahoo. I've a bellsouth address but nearly all mail goes via Yahoo, and some via Gmail. That way I get good spam protection and can send on to my home system the messages (and files) I want or need.
I'm still cogitating about all those David Abernathys ancestry found for me in AL. And the fact that ancestry tells us there was a Blackstone Abernathy on the Fayette Co., KY census in 1800, but apparently not his brother David Blackstone Abernathy, and that there were two David Abernathys on the 1805 Granger Co., TN census. Ancestry also gives us Jordon Dodd's "Virginia Marriages to 1800" marriage of David Abernathy marriage to Lavinia Townes in Halifax Co, VA in 1 Dec 1798, and from there to the Holston Valley down which the Tennessee River drains probably wasn't all that far nor that hazardous back then. I believe both David & Lavinia are buried in the Abernathy/Wooten Cemetery in Lawrence Co., AL but it's so overgrown now that I gather just getting a few tombstone photos from there several years ago was a major all-day undertaking.
