I cannot find your Richardson Abernathy in my database, in Y-Search, nor in the records on Family Tree's website that they maintain for our surname project. They do allow an individual to join more than one surname project on their website, so you might look into that on your personal page on their server.
All Y-DNA surname projects, of course, require direct male-only biological lineage for the Y-DNA test to be applicable because _only_ the male parent can pass on the Y Chromosome to some of their offspring. And nearly all administrators want a paper pedigree that accompanies that test even when they may decline to display such on the project website.
To the best of my knowledge, all Y-DNA tests have typically been 'double-blind tests' therefore the results are trustworthy. Researched surname paper trails can sometimes be highly misleading regarding TRUE parent-to-child biological descent.
I see that the surname under which you are posting is Hooper. This implys that it is your birth name, which in turn implys that your Abernathy genes come to you via an Abernathy female ancestor instead of an Abernathy male ancestor, rendering your Y-DNA in-applicable as regards any value to our surname project.
However, you are perfectly free to log onto your personal page at Family Tree DNA and check the box to join our project and thus allow our co-administrators access to your Y-DNA test results via our administrative page on their website so we can evaluate them versus the data we already have. We do have several volunteers in our project whose surname does not match any of the major Abernathy/Abernethy variations despite the fact that their Y-DNA results most positively DO match our other data results. We have only occasionally chosen not to use data on our websites when the Y-DNA does NOT comes via a male Abernathy ancestor in that individual's paper trail pedigree and is significantly different than any of the rest of the groups we have so far.
