Looking for any information regarding the above Alexander Abernathy, in 1854 Macon Co., Al State Census, (1 male over 21 - 1 female over 21)next to Samuel Dobbs, son of Meth. Episc. Rev. Nathaniel Dobbs and brother ofReuben Dobbs. I have not found him anywhere after that.
I believe Alexander Abernathy to be the son of my ancestor, David Abernathy, who was b. circa 1791, NC, and wife Jane unknown, b.circa 1792, SC. David also had sons, (Meth. Episc. Rev.) Joseph Thomas Abernathy, b. 1824, TN, d. 1859, Coosa Co., AL, Coleman Abernathy, b. 1827, TN, and (possibly) Meredith Abernathy, b. circa 1826, TN. David Abernathy is found in the 1830 and 1840 Fed. Census, Shelby Co., AL, and in the 1850 Federal, and 1854 Macon AL State Censuses; I have not found him after that.
Also, Rev. J.T. Abernathy (my ancestor) married Sarah Elizabeth Mobley, daughter of Thomas J. Mobley, and another daughter, Mary, married the above Reuben Dobbs. I can also furnish much more information, if needed.
