Info furnished by #46852198

Mrs. S. D. Abernathy died 22 Mar 1902 in Chattanooga, Hamilton Co, TN. (Tennessee, City Death Records, 1872-1023). According to this record, she was to be buried at Pulaski, Giles Co, TN.

The SAR record everyone is copying has her dying 22 Apr 1903. That turns out to be incorrect.

The SAR record gives her birth date as 6 Jan 1829. I have not been able to document any birth date, and no two census records give the same year of birth. The City Death Record gives her age as 73 making her born about 1829. That is the year of birth I put in my records.

Tennessee, City Death Records, 1872-1923 about Mrs S D Abernathy
Name: Mrs S D Abernathy
Gender: Female
Birth Date: abt 1829
Birth Place: Tennessee
Age: 73
Death Date: 22 Mar 1902
Death Place: Chattanooga, Hamilton
In 1900 she was living in Chattanooga, Hamilton Co, TN, so I believe the above record to be accurate. In the 1900 census her sister Helen Tannehill is living with her as well as Fannie B. Abernathy, 36, and Thomas E. Abernathy, 39.
