I found a small biographical history for the William Meshack Abernathy family in McKinny, Collin, Texas. (Via Mississippi) If anyone is interested, in some Abernathy's in that area, the link can be found in the Source area for William. [Abernathy-626]. The source states it is from the Texas Historic Society Inventory Form. (Not just a form, so don't panic). :) Hope it can help someone.
