I am Regina Abernathy Ragan, and I was originally from North GA. I am not Regina Roper.I descend from Miles and Ursula Abernathy through their son Nathan and Eve Cline Abernathy that moved to Cass/Bartow County, GA.
I can't prove it yet, but I believe that Miles and Ursula moved with her siblings toward Illinois or followed one of their sons westward.
Have you seen the lawsuit settlement?I have only seen abstracts of court appearances but not the final settlement.When did it finally get settled?
The deed that you quoted is probably between brother in laws.Peter Forney married Miles Abernathy's sister.They were children of David and Ann Turner Abernathy.This Miles that married Susan Pear/Parr lived and is documented in the Lincoln Co., NC area long after Miles and Ursula either left the area or died.
