I am a first cousin to Dr. John L and Dr. Rodney Abernethy.My mother was Flossie A. Abernethy, a sister to their. father Elmer Abernethy.
I would be happy to exchange information about the family. You may contact me by emailat:firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am especially interested in finding out more about the Abernethy line of their father Elmer Abernethy.His father was Robert Abernethy, born 31 Jan 1848 in London, Middlesex, Ontario, died 5 Feb 1935, Canoga Park, California,He immigrated to the States when he was 17 and married Mary Owen of Wisconsin.Robert's' father was also Robert Abernethy, supposedly born in Northern Ireland about 1815 and married a Caroline Travers, possibly in Niagara, Canada.Her parents may have been a Boyle Travers and Hannah Laraway.I would appreciate any information, suggestions and help in determining where Robert was born in Ireland, his parents etc.
