I am also interested in the ABERNATHY (variant spellings) family who was in Wilson Co. before the Civil War.
I believe that the MARK ABMATHA (or whatever spelling) was
MARK ABERNATHY and was the one who married POLLY MACKLEROY in Wake Co., NC, September 12, 1814.
He was perhaps the son of SMITH ABERNATHY and his wife,
REBECCA FOWLER, who lived in Wake Co., before migrating to
(eventually) Carroll Co., NT.
As the last mentioned couple is said to have had a son named JOSIAH CRUDUP ABNERNATHY, the mother, REBECCA FOWLER,
was probably a relative of the JOSIAH CRUDUP family of Wake Co., NC.
