Warren County

Death: Jan. 21, 1886

According to the 1850 census, Buckner Abernathy had three living children in his household, which appear to have been born of his first wife, Mary Francis Graves. They were married in 1834. Mary Francis' father was William Branch Graves (1795-1840) and her mother was Harriet Hilda Abernathy. Mary Francis died September 4, 1848. Her grave location is unknown. The three children listed in the 1850 census were Nancy Catherine, Augustus Cabot, and Henry Clay. In the 1850 census, he is married to his second wife, Mary Agnes Kesterson. In the 1860 census, he and Mary Agnes appear to have the following children: Urceila 13, Emma 8, Camelia 6, and David Harper 2. A girl child who was named Mary Agnes (later called "Aggie") was born to them in April, 1864. Unfortunately, mother Mary Agnes Kesterson-Abernathy died about a week after Aggie was born. Aggie never knew her biological mother. Reverend Buckner later married Amanda Pitts who probably helped raise the younger children.
