  Robert Abernethie/Abernathy/Ebernethell is on record as having arrived on these shores in 1652 as a single man, destined for 5 years of agricultural bondage, at the end of which time (and not before) he married Sara whose daugher is listed as Cubisha. Robert settled inland in the Virginia colony. There are many who attribute more than one son to Robert and Sara, but I do not believe there is any concrete evidence to support the existance of any except the Robert who (in 1704) was in possession of the same 100 acres of Virginia land purchased by the 1st Robert in 1667.
  May I please know the source of your claim that this William was a son of Robert and Sara (Cubisha?) Abernathy?

Robert died in 1685 in Prince George, VA.
