Lynda, In Sept. 2001 I received a copy of an application for membership to theNational Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution of a member that traced her background to Miles Abernathy born 1728 Prince George Co. Va. died 1789 Lincoln Co. N. C.Miles married Sarah Ann (Jones) Goode born 1724 Virginia died after 1803 Lincoln Co. N. C.The marriage took place between 1750-1755 in Virginia.
It also lists Miles' children:Robert to Sarah Nichols, Elizabeth to John Farrar, Battee to Mary Beale, Jones to Elizabeth Ann Rutledge, John to Catey Nance then Susan Connelly, Miles II to Usley Bracher, and James.
Miles was a patriot who furnished money and supplies for the militia.He was also in the State Assembly of North Carolina in 1779.
This is the only documentation that I have.Hope that this helps. Theresa
