OBITUARY: The Pulaski Citizen, Wednesday, Apr 7, 1937
News was received here Tuesday of the death of Julius Abernathy in New York Tuesday morning (April 6, 1937) at a hospital after a few days illness of pneumonia. The burial will take place here probably Friday or Saturday, in Maplewood Cemetery.
Mr. Abernathy was about 40 years of age and unmarried and a son of Prof. and Mrs. A. Sam Abernathy.. Other survivors are two sisters, Mrs. Tom O'Neal of Nashville and Mrs. Charlie Abernathy of Pulaski, and two brothers Fisher Abernathy and Butler Abernathy. Mrs. Charlie Abernathy left for New York Tuesday afternoon to see after funeral and other affairs.
Mr. Abernathy was an expert telegrapher and was connected with a Wall Street brokerage office. He left Pulaski when about seventeen years of age and located in New York and when the World War came on he enlisted and saw twelve months service overseas.
He was a bright and capable man and learned telegraphy in the local Western Union office. He had many friends who regret his death, which is particularly sad as he is the third member of the family to die within about six months.
