Reference Robert & Ellen Abernethy My branch of the Abernethy's is from Drumard, Stewartstown Co.Tyrone in Northern Ireland. My great grand uncle was a Robert Abernethy from the townland of Drumard. He was born in 1815 and he died on 21st.July 1905. He is buried in Donaghendry Graveyard, Stewartstown. His wife Ellen McCord was born in 1810 at Gortnaguig, an adjoining townland to Drumard. She died on 14th.January 1907 and is also buried in Donaghendry Graveyard. They were married in Ardboe Church on 24th.August 1852. I do not know where they spent their lives but they were buried from the townland of Drumgormal which is half way between Stewartstown and Drumard - roughly 2 miles. A memorial plaque in Donaghendry Parish Church acknowledges the work that Robert did for the Church over many years. He also erected a headstone on the family burial plot in the graveyard. I have not been able to trace any children from the marriage. Trusting that this little bit of information will be of assistance to your research.
