Some descendants have spoken of family opposition to the marriage of Charles Burke Abernethy and Sarah Eliza Rankin. Sarah had given birth to two children out of wedlock before she married Charles Burke Abernethy, and she was a few years older than he. Apparently, the name of the father of her children was not disclosed. In addition, an agreement was reached between John Butch Rankin and Charles Burke Abernethy, that he and Sarah would inherit the Rankin land in return for their care of John Rankin in his old age. These may be reasons that Charles Burke Abernethy did not join his parents in Georgia.

Notes for Sarah Eliza Rankin:
Discrepancies were found between sources as to date of birth - the date used in this data is shown on the cemetery marker.

Sarah Elizabeth Rankin carried to her grave the identity of the father of her first two children, William Washington Rankin and Nancy Rankin. Nevertheless, the children were accepted fully as grandchildren by their grandfather John Butch Rankin, and were accepted into the family when Sarah married Charles Burke Abernathy. [A. Gregg Moore & Forney A. Rankin, The Rankins of North Carolina, (Marietta, GA: 1997), 33.]
