Birth: 1745
Brunswick County
Virginia, USA
Death: 1850
Giles County
Tennessee, USA

Buckner Abernathy was born in 1745 or 1749 in Brunswick County, VA, possibly in or around Bristol Parish. He was the likely son of John and Lucy Harwell Abernathy. In 1787, he married Hulda Rivers, and the couple had at least six children. His exact birth and death dates are not known, but seem to be centered around 1745/1749-1850.

Buckner was thought to have served in Capt. Wallace's 2nd VA regiment during the Revolutionary War.

Buckner's family eventually migrated to Giles County, TN, where he died and was buried in Abernathy Cemetary. He was preceded in death by his wife, parents, and three children.
