U.S. Decennial Census[3]

Abernathy village has never reported a population figure separately on the U.S. Census as an unincorporated community. However, the 8th beat/precinct of Cleburne County bore its name from 1880-1950.[4] In the 1930[5] and 1940[6] returns, when the census recorded racial statistics for the precincts, both times reported a White majority for the precinct. In 1960, the precincts were merged and/or reorganized into census divisions (as part of a general reorganization of counties) and it was consolidated into the census division of Ranburne.[7]
