Folks, I must interject here to help you avoid an wrong turn. 1) Just next door in the 1850 cens of Rutherford Co, NC is the dau. of Abner and wife Maria. B.F. Green & Mira (Weatherby). 2) Abner's wife is not an Eubanks - that marriage comes from the Guilford Co. NC - where the family of WeatherLY are found, including an Abner, but this Rutherford Co. Abner's first wife is Maria last name unknown! The Eubanks family is well researched and other Eubanks marriages to WeatherLY show that it is a different Abner. 3)IMPORTANTLY - this Abner is repordedly the son of Bartholomew Weatherby b. 1770, brother to the Aaron of Rutherford Co. NC.This has been researched by a number of descendants, namely Nell Mills of Winfield, AL, who has put together the families of Mariah Weatherby & husband: Benjamin Franklin Green, with the help of several family members and several documents, i.e. old letters, Civil War Muster & estate papers. 4)It was during the days of the Weatherbee-Round-Up that came in contact with Paul Weatherby of Ball Ground, Cherokee Co., GA, with whom I visited in 2001, as well as meeting Nell Mills.My last contact with her was in 2002 and she was in a nursing home. I do have lots of material pertaining to this family and will share glady if you will contact me privately.Too much to cover here!
Hope this helps keep you on the correct line for this Abner Weatherby! Doris A.W. Oakes
