2.4. Seaborn T. Featherston – b. ca. 1809 NC (son of Merrimon Featherstone and Amelia Mills); m. Sarah Alien – b. ca. 1813 NC. d/o George Alien and Margaret Osborne. Seaborn T. and Sarah lived on property bought/inherited from his father. Merrimon, and raised a family. Was active in the community. JFH sources: Henderson Co., NC Census records.

Issue of Seaborn T. Featherston:
2.4.1. Margaret Featherston – b. 1832/3. One of the daughters between 5 and 10 years on the 1840 Henderson Co., NC Census. JFH sources: other Henderson Co., NC Census records.

2.4.2. Harriet C. Featherston – b. 1835, d. 1906 (15 in 1850 Henderson Co., NC census). From Henderson County record of Marriages, Harriet C. Featherstone m. Joseph Livingston on Jan. 9, 1855 in Henderson Co. William Hicks, Minister. No witnesses listed, no age given for either the groom or the bride. Harriet would have been 20 years of age. Joseph Livingston d. 9 Mar 1926 with the given age of 80 years, making his birthdate about 1846. He was probably older – perhaps by ten years. His parents were given as John S. and Elizabeth (Foster) Livingston. (John b. in NC and Elizabeth b.in SC). Harriet C. may have been one of the daughters between 5 and 10 on the 1840 census.

2.4.3. Emma L. Featherston – b. abt. 1837 (JFH: ?same as Janean, age 13 in the 1850 Henderson Co. census?). Likely one of the daughters under 5 on the 1840 census of Henderson Co., NC). Emma was not listed on the 1860 census, but she was deeded land by S.T. Feath- erston in 1889, according to Bk. 25, page 539 in the Henderson Co. Land records. (JFH: Scott R. Featherston lists this child as Jane Ann.) In the 1912 edition of The Asheville City Directory her residence was given as 180 Charlotte St.

2.4.4. Sarah Eliza Featherston – b. 12 Sep 1839, known as “Eliza”. May have been a daughter under 5 on the 1840 census. She married 15 Nov 1859 in Henderson Co., NC to Memory Prince Dermid. She appears in the 1860 census of Henderson County, NC as Eliza Dermid, age 20, wife of Memory Dermid, age 28 – with no children. The name “Sarah” was included by Reba Dermid in the application she filed for membership in the NSDAR, based on descent from Sarah Eliza. By the 1880 census Sarah and Memory had a family of nine children.

2.4.5. John E. Featherston – b. abt. 1845-47 NC. (Shown as age 5 on the 1850 Henderson Co. census and age 13 on the 1860 census.)

2.4.6. Mary Featherston – b. abt. 1848-49 NC (age 2 on the 1850 Henderson Co. census, and age 11 on the 1860 census). Mary was deeded land by S.T. Featherston in 1871 (Bk. 9, page 375, deed, 1871.)

Merrimon Featherstone’s Descendants (con’td)

(JFH: The 1860 Henderson Co., NC cenus shows;
S.T. Fetherston 50 farmer 600/7300 NC
Sarah Fetherston 47 NC
John Fetherston 13 NC
Mary Fetherston 11 NC
Celia E. Fetherston 9 NC

The 1870 Henderson Co., NC Census shows:
S.T. Featherston 62 farmer 1000/500 NC
Sarah Featherston 58 NC
Mary Featherston 22 NC
Louisa Featherston 18 NC

Louisa is not listed in 1860, and Celia E. is not listed in 1870.
Could Celia E. and Louisa be the same person and perhaps misread on one of the records?

Mrs. Ward’s listing of this family includes a son named S. Merrimon Featherston, who was given as a son of “Sebren” on his death certificate in Buncombe Co.. NC under date of Dec. 30. 1930 [Bk 18/001]. Census records do not show Seaborn T. to have had a child named S. Merrimon. Perhaps an error was made by the informant following S. Merrimon’s death. Census records show that Seaborn”s brother, William, did have a son named Merriman. I believe this man was the same as S. Merriman or S.M. as shown in NC records. Does anyone have a comment regarding this matter?)

2.5. Mariah Catherine Featherston – b. ca. 1815 Henderson Co., NC (dau of Merrimon Featherstone and Amelia Mills), d. Nov 1870 Henderson Co., NC (JFH: another source lists her date of death as 1 Jun 1875 in Oconee Co., SO. Mariah had an illegitimate daughter, Harriet C.T. Featherstone in 1842 in SC. with talk in the family about Mariah’s connnection with a Georgia slave trader. She returned to Henderson County and lived at home with her mother and brother Ambrose Featherstone where eventually her brothers quit-claimed parts of their property to her for land of her own for her support, which land became known as the Mariah Alexander lands.
About 1851 in Pickens Co., SC she married Fountain Alexander – b. 12 Jun 1801 NC (son of Elijah Alexander and Sarah Grogan), d. Oct 1856. Mariah was his second wife, and became stepmother to his three sons, David A., Terrel M., Henson and daughter Elizabeth. She and Fountain had two daughters in 1852/3 and 1855 respectively.
Fountain owned 350 acres of land on both sides of Crow Creek which he willed to his sons under date of 6 Oct 1856 “by a deed of gift – sum of $5.00 paid by my loving sons for 350 acres on both sides of Crow Creek adjoining Holdens land, Lemuel Thomas’ land, first granted to Barney Glenn and Robert Craven. Signed F. Alexander, [seal].” Recorded June 1857. [Estate Papers, Pack 86, Clerk of Court’s office, Pickens Co., SC – Recorded 8 June 1857].
Also: “Fountain Alexander to Henson Alexander, deed of gift dated 6 Oct 1857, $5.00 paid – all that tract of land I now live on adjoining Watson Stewart, Robert Steward, Wm Newton, Robert Morgan”. Signed F. Alexander [seal]. Recorded 8 June 1857. (con’td)

Following his death after October 6, 1856, Mariah returned to live on her property in Henderson County, NC. She wrote her own will in June 1870, and died later that same year in November. There is no indication of where she was buried. She appointed Joseph Byers of Henderson County. Mariah Alexander left the Henderson Co. property to her granddaughter, Mary Harriet C. Clyde, with a life lease to Mary’s mother Harriet. Susan and Aurora were minors at the time of the writing of Mariah’s will in June 1870 and at Mariah’s death in November, 1870 and Joseph R. Byers was appointed their guardian. (Joseph R. Byers was son of Francis and Julia (Jones) Byers.)
“…Merriman’s daughter. Mariah…I got in touch with a lady descended from her. As I remember the story, she was on a stage coach trip to visit some relatives. The stage stopped to spend the night at an inn in South Carolina run by a widower who had some children. The widower and Mariah visited, the widower asked Mariah to marry him, and she did… (JFH source: Mrs. I.D. Oakley. Jul 1992.)

FOR YOUR INFORMATION

QUESTION: The best known group of ancestors for Americans is the Mayflower about the first immigrants to the first English settlement at Jamestown?
ANSWER: There were about 104 colonists on the first three ships to land at Jamestown. But only one of them had descendants. Many of the immigrants who came in the first few years died of disease, starvation or Indian arrows. Of the 900 persons who had come to Virginia, only 150 were alive at the end of 1609. And in the terrible “starving time” of that winter, more than half of them died.

NOTES FROM OUR READERS

An Elmore family reunion for descendants of Henry Rufus Elmore and Susan Rebecca Henry was held June 25, 1995 at Bethesda Methodist Church outside Gastonia, Gaston Co., NC. Approximately 150 attended.
submitted by: Kelly L. Elmore, Jr.

Mr. Elmore would also like us to credit his cousin. Sally Elmore, for compiling much of the data he submitted for his BRANCH #5, shown in vol. 14, ps. 22-32.

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!
