I have 11 children of Sarah Melvina Rockett and William Abernathy, most with issue. I have slightly less on the family of David Wilson Abernathy and his wife, Ruth.
As interesting as your information may be and as eager as I am to add your complete line to my database, this does not address the problem I described here in my initial post.
In essence, the problem is "What is the evidence for Sarah Abernathy Rockett's parentage and how does one resolve the apparent conflict of there being two different sets of parents cited by so many? Cite the sources so it can be evaluated!".
After my initial post, one individual sent me a copy of LDS files in reply, no doubt thinking that would answer my question. It failed miserably even to address the issue.
Where did the people of the Fite/Abernathy line get their evidence that the Sarah Abernathy who married John Rockett on 11 Jan 1787 was the daughter of James and Elizabeth (Cox) Abernathy? Where did the 'other side' get the evidence that she was the daughter of Robert and Sarah (Abernathy) Abernathy?? Does the whole question of whose daughter she was hinge upon who the bondsman was????
I have ancestors who stood as bondsmen for individuals to whom I KNOW they were not related. I will not and can not ever accept a bondsman's name as the only proof of someone's parentage. If there is other evidence that substantiates it, fine, but as far as I know in this instance there is none. By itself, it is clearly insufficient.
At this moment in time, I have absolute zilch for evidence of her parentage. And an entry in my "Abernathy Problems" file.
