I am searching for information on Joseph Abernathy (known as Joe) born 1812 in NC. He was married to Delitha S. Gurcter(last name may be wrong) born 1817 in NC. They married circa 1845. They had 5 children; James born 3-1846, William S. Jackson Abernathy born 12-19-1848, Jonas born 2-1851, Lilly Anna born 1854, and Jessie M. born 1859. The family story is that William came to Spartanburg, SC area and bought land, then went back to NC and took a young girl (my grandmother,Ida May Padgett) back to SC. William's parents came and settled near him and his wife in SC. Can anyone help me connect my Joseph to the Robert Abernathy family line?
