I made a mistake in previous message #3352. I said that the Robert Abernathy who married Arpy Duvall was the son of Miles Abernathy and Sarah Ann Jones ( widow Goode ) as he was actually their grandson and the son of Jones Abernathy and Elizabeth Rutledge where the partnership in the Perry County, MO comes from.
I have this from Sharyn Young's genealogy page and have a url for that if you want: John Farrar ( 1738 - 1808 ) who married Rebecca Puryear and whose descendants and relatives married into the Lincoln Co, NC Abernathys was the uncle of the John Farrar who married Elizabeth Abernathy and then Elizabeth Williams and lived in Lincoln County, TN. The Rebecca Abernathys are scarce in my genealogy records.
As far as the Farrar from the "Bissell Rumfelt and Farrar places" - I don't know or have forgotten but I will see what I can find. Is your ancestor Elizabeth Abernathy who married a Farrar the one who died in either MO or IL and had the mother who was the widow Sarah Abernathy back in Lincoln, NC?
