ABERNATHY, Bright The Pulaski Citizen __ Apr 1921

Bright Abernathy, aged about 44 years, died early Tuesday morning at his home in North Pulaski, of double pneumonia after an illness of only a few days beginning with a chill on Thursday of last week. The burial was at Mt. Moriah Wednesday, after services by the Rev. L. M. Laten.
Mr. Abernathy was a member of the firm of Bright Abernathy and Company, who succeeded G. L. Zuccarello, and spent most of his life in the Sumac locality where he was reared, having been in business there several years prior to moving to Pulaski. Mr. Abernathy was quiet, gentlemanly, honest and honorable, in all his dealings, and his character was of a very high type. He was a member of the Odd Fellows and the Woodmen, who participated in the funeral rites. Surviving him are his wife, formerly Miss Beulah Hamlett, and two children who have the sympathy of many friends in their great bereavement, by the loss of a kind and faithful husband and father.

NOTE: Bright Abernathy was married to Beulah Hamlett, the daughter of Solon Hamlett and wife, Stacie Elizabeth Tidwell Hamlett.
