I have his date of death as 3 Dec 1826 [source: Abstracts of Vital Records from Raleigh NC Newspapers, Lois Smathers Neal Vol I: 1799-1819; Vol II: 1820-1829, p. 1 of Vol 2]. I had his yr of birth but not month and day. A cousin in the Fite line sent me some family group sheets several years ago that I have yet to verify. One of them gave a marriage date for his marriage to Susan of the 23rd of Oct 1818 instead of the day that you show, but I do not know which is right. From various sources, I gather that Miles B. Abernathy was the eldest son from his 1st marriage, which would explain why he was appointed guardian for the children.
