> from what i understand, no proof yet just word of mouth
The presumed relationship between George Abernethy of Barrie and the Robert Abernathy who was sold into 5 yrsbondage in the colonies is, as yet, totally unsubstantiated by any extant documentary proof.
Despite much monies expended and many researcher's efforts, professional or un-certified, no one has yet to discover a single source citation that can be accessed and verified by other researchers.
> Geroge Abernathy bought a piece of land called the Barrie somewhere in Scotland
Pardon me, but he inherited the estate from his Father under Scotland's then existing laws of primogenitor. The property was in Strath Isla, that is, the valley of the Isla River, which is a tributary of and flows into the Deveron River upstream of what is now the Milltown of Rothiemay, and downstream of the town of Keith, which sits astride the river.
> like i said earlier i have no proof of this and i am yet to find anyone who does
The evidence that it cannot possibly be true is available, but not on line, and requiring a certain level of historical knowledge about the rigidly stratified society of Scotland for several centuries prior to 1800, but the knowledge is not restricted.
