Hello All, I've been off of genealogy for a time but I'm back.I've been checking old census records on my male Abernathy line. There has apparently been some long standing confusion with one of my direct ancestor's names.I have him listed as David Addison Abernathy 1811(NC)-1887(McKinney, TX). This has yet to be completely verified. In checking the 1850 US Census [again] I found that he was actually listed as Daniel A Abernathy ;1860- A. D. Abernathy; 1870- D.A. Abernathy; 1880- again, as A.D.Abernathy.Clearly the same man and family members in all the right locations. I am wondering, and deferring to the greater wisdom of this Board, if my David Addison is really Daniel Addison Abernathy ... minimally Daniel A. Abernathy?Anybody else have any input?Should this prove to be true it will smooth out a rather large "bump" in what is a fairly straight forward lineage.Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
