I am at a brick wall regarding this Unknown Abernathy(born about 1858, GA, death before Jun 1 1900) unable to find him on a census with said wife, Adaline L Witt(born Jun 1835 per 1900 census, thus making her older than Unknonw Abernathy). Her death is after Jun 1, 1900 as I found her on the 1900 census as a widow, living with son, Robert L Abernathy.
Unknown Abernathy and Adaline L Witt had one child that I know of(can find documentation).Robert Lafayette Abernathy, born Oct 2, 1878 in AL(possibly Cherokee Co. AL)
The lineage goes oldest to youngest: Unknown Abernathy(b. around 1858, d. before 1900) Robert Lafayette Abernathy(b. Oct 2. 1878, d. May 13, 1937) Artie Lafayette Abernathy Sr(b. Nov 25, 1920, d. Jun 2, 1979) Artie Lafayette Abernathy Jr(b. Dec 1, 1948, d. Mar 11, 2012) Trace Catherine Abernathy David Earl Abernathy
I noticed that each time I found Adaline L Witt on a census, she was never listed as an Abernathy. Now wonders if the Unknown Abernath and Adaline Witt was even married.
My main source for looking up the Abernathy/Witt information was on Galileo, I do NOT have access to Ancestory.
Any help would be greatly appriecated and I would be happpy to share the information I have.
