CONNOLLY & COULTER’S – History of Kentucky

Milo G. Featherston, whose home is five miles south of Lexington on
Walnut Hill Pike, has spent practically all his life in that locality, gave
his efforts successfully for half a century to farming, and has also been
identified with a number of public interests and public offices. He is one of
the well known and highly esteemed citizens of Fayette County.
Not far from his present home he was born November 24, 1842, a son of
Robert and Elizabeth (Neet) Featherston. His father was born in Virginia in
1803, and in 1808 was brought to Kentucky by his parents, Jeremiah and
Elizabeth (Elmore) Featherston. He was one of a family consisting of two sons
and several daughters. His brother William removed to Illinois. Jeremiah
Featherston located in the district south of Lexington and died there in 1855.
at the age of seventy-five. Robert Featherston settled near his father, and
at one time was one of the most extensive farmers in the county, having about
450 acres. His mother reached the age of ninety-six, and he was also
ninety-six when he passed away in 1899. He made a success of farming and was
also a citizen of irreproachable character and of great independence of
thought. He began voting as a whig, was a Know Nothing, and later was one of
the few men in his community to vote the republican ticket. He served for
some years as a county magistrate, and was never afraid to voice his
convictions in politics or his hatred of whiskey. He was an active member of
the Christian Church, and for a number of years worshipped in the church at
Providence. His first wife was the widow Farrar, whose only son, William
Featherston, is living at Lexington at the age of eighty-nine. Elizabeth
Neet, second wife of Robert Featherston, died when past eighty. Her children
were: Charles, a farmer and butcher, who died at Lexington, where his widow
and son Ernest still live; Frank, who died at the age of twenty-two; John, who
became a physician, practiced at Indianapolis and died there; Milo G.; Warren,
who died young; Oscar, a Kentucky farmer, now living in California; Elizabeth,
who died in 1905, the wife of Dr. J.M. Rice; and Susan, unmarried, who died in
1921.
Milo G. Featherston was educated in the schools of Fayette County, and in
1875 came to the locality where he is still living. He acquired a farm of 100
acres, and has made that the scene of a very busy career. For eight years he
served as a magistrate, was on the board at the time of the building of the
county jail, and for nearly forty years was almost regularly a member of the
County Court jury until finally excused from that duty on account of age.
Politically he is a democrat.
In 1875 Mr. Featherston married Miss Belle Foley, daughter of James
Foley, of the well-known family of the Versailles Pike. Mrs. Featherston was
born in Fayette County and died in 1917, after they had been married nearly
half a century. Thirteen children were born to their union, eight of whom
reached mature years, as follows: Susie, wife of John Kimberly, of Bracken
County, Kentucky; Amanda, wife of Claude Featherston, of Scott County,
Kentucky; Belle, Mrs. Colby Carr, of Lexington; Milo G., Jr., a farmer living
near his father; Sally, Mrs. Albert Carsner, of Montana; Lucy and Margaret
both at home. The family are members of the Christian Church.
(JFH: Milo Gist Featherston – d. 13 Aug 1927; m. 28 Sep 1865 (according to
Fayette Co., KY marriage records) to Belle Foley. He was a son of Robert

CONNOLLY & COULTER’S History of Kentucky (con’td)

Steve Black Featherston is manager of the Marshal1-Featherston Motor
Company, one of the largest automobile agencies in the state. Mr. Featherston
was formerly in the hardware and agricultural implement business, began
handling automobiles as a side line, and on April 1, 1913, began the present
business, erecting in that year a two story building, with 70 feet frontage
and 88 feet in depth at 177 North Upper Street. That building was on the
opposite side of the street to the present headquarters of the business. In
1917 on the present site the firm built a one-story model salesroom and
storage plant 57 by 200 feet deep, and in 1920 erected another one-story
structure on the same side of the street 127 by 200 feet depth. Thus the firm
has between $75.000 and $80,000 enlisted in real estate alone. They have
storage for 400 cars, and keep an average of twelve men busy in the mechanical
department. They do a general garage business, and since 1914 has been
Fayette County representative for the Buick car. The firm has sold as many as
seventy-five cars per year. The business has had a steady growth and
increase, and the capital of the firm when they started in 1913 was only the
lot where they put up their first garage. Mr. Featherston is widely known
over the state as a successful automobile dealer and has given his
enthusiastic influence to good roads movement.
He was born at the forks of the Elkhorn in Franklin County, Kentucky,
August 12, 1881, son of Lloyd and grandson of William Featherston. His
grandfather spent his active life on the homestead farm in Franklin County, a
portion of which is still owned by the family. Lloyd Featherston, a native of
Frankfort, was for many years identified with the operation of the 500-acre
farm, but in 1890 moved to Midway where he became overseer and manager of the
R.P. Pepper estate, devoting the next six years to the superintendence of this
extensive farm. He then moved to Fayette County, locating on Leestone Pike, 3
1/2 miles from Lexington, and the last four years of his life he lived retired
in Lexington, where he died at the age of sixty-five. He married Sally
Wilkerson, who is still living in Lexington. Her parents were William and
Martha (Black) Wilkerson.
Steve Black Featherston was reared and educated spending his early life
on a farm, and became associated in 1909 with C.M. Marshall in the C.M.
Marshall & Company, hardware and agricultural implements. For eight years
prior to that he had been with the Smith-Watkins Company, a hardware firm.
Mr. Featherston had been handling automobiles since 1910. He has served as a
director and president of the Lexington Board of Commerce, and is a member of
the Rotary Club. At the age of twenty-three he married Louise Bagby of
Bowling Green, Missouri. They have two sons, Lloyd and Steve, Jr.

ATTENTION – BRANCH #5 – FEATHERSTON/HIGHTOWER DESCENDANTS

I am compiling a comprehensive genealogy of the Hightower family. I am
happy to receive genealogical information from other researchers/descendants
of the Hightower family.
At this time, I have compiled genealogical records from many thousands of the
descendants of Joshua and Eleanor Hightower of Virginia. My information has
been obtained from official records, research of other genealogists,
descendant interviews, and family records. I will gladly share information
from my database with other Hightower descendants and look forward to
corresponding with descendants of Ann Hightower and Burwell Featherston.

ANSWERS TO VOLUME 16 QUESTIONS

In FEATHERSTON FINDINGS, Volume 16, page 7 under COMPLETE TOMBSTONE CENSUS OF
DOUGLAS COUNTY, KS, we asked the question, “Can anyone identify Edwin J.
Featherston?” Douglas Co., KS 1870 census record shows Edwin Featherston, age
20. b. OH, son of William Featherston (b. England) and Catherine Featherston
(b. Ireland). Edwin with a family is also listed in the 1910 Morris County, KS
census, age 59. The Edwin J. Featherston, b. 1850, d. 1930 and buried in
Douglas County, KS is surely a son of William and Catherine.
submitted by: Mrs. I.D. (Elmeree) Oakley

In FEATHERSTON FINDINGS, Volume 16, page 10. the question was asked, “Can
anyone identify J.N. Featherston?” She is Mrs. J(asper) N(ewton) (Elizabeth
Rhyne) Featherston, grandmother to Mollie Elizabeth Morton Hines.
submitted by: James W. Callahan

JFH: Thank you very much James, for your answer to this question. Is Mollie
Elizabeth Morton Hines the daughter of Amanda Anne Featherston as shown in
volume 4, at the bottom of page 23 as having married Percy Featherston? Is
this an error?
Additional information submitted by Mr. Callahan also answers another of our
questions shown on page 10, vol. 16. Pike Co., MS Marriages lists the
marriage of L.A. Featherston and Peter Quinn on 31 Oct 1887. Mr. Callahan
also sent a copy of his reading of the 1910 Lowndes Co., MS Census, showing
the household which we included Allie B. Wood. His reading of this record
does not include Allie B. Wood. I suspect he/she was in another household.

BRANCHES

The BRANCHES section of FEATHERSTON FINDINGS presents an opportunity for
all of those interested in our heritage to record our direct descent.
These BRANCHES are not confined to the spelling of Featherston, but may also
include Featherstone, Featherstun, etc. If you have not yet sent in your
BRANCH, please do so as soon as possible. I encourage you to take advantage
of this FREE SERVICE.
These BRANCHES will be published in the order in which they are received
or at my discretion. Every effort will be made to transcribe material exactly
as it is submitted. However, if errors occur in this transcription process,
please let me know, so I can make corrections in a future volume. If, while
typing your lineage for publication, there is a doubt as to the spelling of
your surname, the spelling of Featherston will be used.
These BRANCHES may be added to or corrected in future volumes.
Therefore, it is not necessary to wait until you have completed your research
before submitting your lineage for publication. Although we all may have best
intentions of permanently recording our findings, too often the family
historian passes away or becomes too ill to continue research work and those
years of research are lost forever.
By publishing your BRANCH and research material in FEATHERSTON FINDINGS
you not only protect your family information, but help future researchers find
their elusive family heritage.
You may submit your lineage in the form found in this section or you may
submit the information on Family Group Sheets. It is not so important how you
submit your lineage, but that you do submit it. Please cite your sources
whenever possible.
If you find you are fortunate enough to connect with an established
branch already in print, please let me know. The branches will be merged in
a future volume, the earlier branch number will be maintained, and later
number be eliminated. Perhaps we may eventually find a common ancestor and
become one large family!

I can find no record of her death or burial in MS. She did have family in VA, NC and TN. Here in Germany I need some help. Hope some one has the answers.

Need info on Susanna Featherston who married Burrell Wells ca. 1770, Nottoway Co., VA. Did they have a daughter Nancy who married Jacob Fite? Nancy is my GGGG Grandmother.

Do any pictures exist of Carolus Featherston’s children (perhaps tintypes), including James Featherston d. 1878 and Burwell d. 1885?
