The Last Will and Testament of Frederick Abernathy
(Frederick Abernathy was born in Virginia. All the children of Frederick were found in Giles Co after Frederick died. Matthew and his sister, Sandal, were the last of the family to arrive in Giles Co, per written family tradition. James (Jimmy Dry) Abernathy's home has been completely remodeled and still is home used in Giles Co. Matthew Abernathy is listed on the 1850 Giles Co census- but I have yet to locate a stone for him. He was my great, great grandfather. His son, Henry M.C. Abernathy, married Alcy Caroline Graves, daughter of Campbell Graves of Giles Co 1850 census. She was called Caroline Graves, age 20, living in the household of her sister, Martha (Andrew) Nichols, in 1850 census. Caroline and Henry Abernathy are buried at Bethel, Giles Co with no stones. Comments of Virginia Keefer.)
