I have collateral Abernathy lines and collect Abernathy data because of that.My main interest is when they connect to the Harwell family.I have three Turner Abernathy's in my files but I can't tell you where your Turner belongs.
Turner b April 03, 1803 in NC was the s/o Susannah Harwell and Harbert Abernathy.Harbert died in Lincoln Co., NC August 18, 1820.
Turner Abernathy b 1763 who married Dicie Abernathy December 15, 1788 had a son Turner Junior b probably abt 1800 who I know nothing about.Turner SR. was s/o David Abernathy and Mary Turner. David was s/o Robert A. Abernathy and Mary A. Harwell.David was a brother of Jones Abernathy who married Mary Rutledge.
Turner Abernathy b aft 1802 who married Elizabeth Abernathy is s/o James B. Abernathy and Mary Frances Jennings who married March 22, 1802 in Brunswick Co. VA.James B. is the s/o Frederick Abernathy and Tabitha Harwell.
These families were all related.
Hope this will help.Let me know if you think your Turner is one of the above.I do have some of the children of some of the Turners above if that would help (not a complete list, I'm sure) but I didn't have the name Nelson Turner; so I would like to add him to my files.
