I need a little help maybe you can give me. I have the following family group: John Firth Abernathy b abt 1800 married Elizabeth ? (no maiden name or dates) Children: Charles H Abernathy b 1828 in TN Margaret Jb 1830 in TN John Mb 1832 in AL Elizabeth Hb 1834 in AL Thomas Cb 1836 in AL William Gb 1838 in MS James Claytonb Dec 26 1840 in MS d Mar 6 1919 in TN m Nancy A Tidwell in 1842 (!) I have some other Mary Ann Abernathys but not in this family & none married to a Davie. Is the 1842 "marriage date" really the birth year for Nancy Tidwell? Do you have any more details round and about this family? I am having lots of problems with JOHN Clayton Abernathy b Mar 30 1834 m Nancy Amanda Bicknell b Aug 15 1829 parents of John A Abernathy b NOv 11 1849, Have you any information on that branch of the family?
