(Sir Thomas, Sir William, Sir Richard, Sir Reginald, Sir Alfred, Sir Randolph, Sir John, Sir William, Sir Reginald, Sir Hugo, Sir Richard, Baldwin IV, Baldwin III, Baldwin II, Baldwin I, Anacher Great Forester) .He was knighted, and married the daughter of Fetherstonbaugh, of Stanhope Hall, Durham, Chief of the Fetherston clan. This family is of Saxon origin, and was seated at Fetherston, in Northumberland, before the Conquest; that part of the country having been allotted to its progenitor, a Saxon officer, for his gallant conduct against the Britons. The house in which the family resided was formerly upon a hill, where were two stones- called fether stones. The house was destroyed and a newedifice erected under the hill, which valley was locally denominated a haugh, hence the name Fetherstonehaugh.

1961 letter from Mr. & Mrs. E.S. Kitterman of Benton Harbor, MI

to Mrs. Jordan (Brenda) Fischler of Rockville, MD

Nov. 7, 1961

Dear Mrs. Fischler,

A few weeks ago Mrs. Kitterman who was Kathryn Featherston until I ruined her name on Dec. 25, 1912 rec’d a letter from her brother Fred in Ill. and in it was your letter to him in regard to the Featherston family history. We hope you will forgive us for this long delay for when the letter came our daughter and family were visiting us, so the letters were put by and left not answered, then we left on a trip, went to visit my sister in Montana, were home just long enough to rest up a bit and then went on a trip east, without bringing our correspondence up to date, and that is what is embarrassing to us now for today in going thru last summers letters we discovered and read your letter to Fred. No doubt you and the Le Mars, Iowa Featherstons are of the same line for Mrs. Kitterman’s father was John Richard Featherston ‘born at Meherrin, Va., in 1858. His father was John C. Featherstone and his mother’s maiden name was Catherine Williams; he had a sister Mary who married Henry Wetzel and lived for years in Cedar Rapids, la., one daughter Kathryn Anderson still lives there. Mr. Featherston’s mother died when he was just a boy and his father John C. Featherstone married again, and one daughter from that marriage still lives at Dubuque, la. Her name is Margaret Wahl; she is our only living Aunt in either of our families. We saw her in May this year and her mind is clear, she remembers relatives far back. We plan to see her next week enroute to Tucson, Arizona so will take your letter along and get all the family history we can and write it to you. Since Meherrin is in the County adjoining Amelia Co. it would seem you are almost of the same line of Featherstons.

The thing we regret now is that we didn’t dig into our mail before we went east, for we would have called you from our daughters Apt. in Alexandria, Va. We were there ten days and would have (planned to) gone down to Meherrin in search of family records, but our sons wife in Iowa was seriously ill so we hurried back. …Our daughter is Mrs. Ben H. Ward(?) (poss. Huard? -JFH) . Her husband is Col. Ward(?) and has office in the Pentagon Bldg. Dorothy is librarian out at Congressional school. …She too is interested in family history.

I have a first cousin Fred Kitterman who lives at Germantown, Md. not far from you. ..but he wouldn’t know the Featherstons. We visited Fred in Nov last year when our daughter and husband were stationed at Carlisle and he was spending his years at war college there, after a four year assignment in Germany. He graduated with the fall class at Geo. Washington University

Letter from Mr. & Mrs. E.S. Kitterman to Mrs. Jordan (Brenda) Fischler (cont.)

getting his Masters degree. We went over on Oct lOth so as to be there for the occasion. They have two sons away from home in College.

In Mrs. Kitterman’s family there were four boys and two girls. Her only sister Cora died in July 1959. An older brother Walter died last May lst at Le Mars, Iowa. There is one brother Gregg who lives at Le Mars, Iowa, and Fred who lives at Johnston City, Ill.; he lived in Iowa until 1957 when he moved to Ill. Another brother, Elmer J., lived in Chicago until he died in 1954; he was the youngest of the family. Fred has one daughter Shirley, Mrs. Harry Stevens of Laporte, Ind. Greg has two sons, Lauren at Peoria, Ill., and Gerry at Le Mars, and one daughter Mrs. Phil Kreig at Le Mars. Elmer had one son, John R. now living at Tucson, Ariz. …In our family we have three – a son Ralph (Dr. R.D. Kitterman) pastor of the Methodist church at Webster City, la. and two daughters Dorothy (Mrs. B. Huard(?») at Alexandria and Laury’s now Mrs. L.D. Boyer- her husband is the Methodist minister at Channabow, Ill. and she is teaching in the Channabow school.

When we were on our way to Ariz. in 1946 we stopped at Carlsbad Caverns in N.M. and our guide was a forrest ranger there; his name was Featherston and his home was in the east; he looked so much like Mrs. Kitterman’s brother we felt sure he must be of the same family, but we didn’t get to visit with him to find out. Mrs. Kitterman’s grandfather, John C. Featherston, was a Civil War veteran -and served with the army of the South.

We would appreciate any information you can send us in regard to the family history.

Sincerely, , Mr. & Mrs. E.S. Kitterman

Joshua James Featherstun had 2 brothers, Richard Featherstun and William Featherstun and 3 sisters, Berta, “Mat”, & Mary Frances (married Blackwell)

Write Mrs. John Featherstun, R.F.D., Kenbridge, VA (Husband was Richard Featherstuns son)

(JFH: The following letter is on the reverse side of the above questionnaire.) March 29, 1964

Dear Brenda,

I enjoyed your letter so much and I’m indeed sorry that I haven’t answered before now, but I had to wait and see my husband’s mother. We are in Suffolk, Va. with her for Easter holidays.

I work at the schools from 8:30-1:00 as Librarian’s are so scarce and I told them I’d work to help out on a part time basis. I have one girl Martha Jane who is 10 years old.

I’m sorry I can’t give you anymore information. My mother-in-law said to tell you the Joshua James Featherstun was in the Civil War, Company G; Ninth Va. Cavalry and was severly wounded near Brandy Station, but recovered and returned to his command and was in the last Cavalry charge at Appomattox, Va.

Once in doing some reference work, I came upon a book in which the records of Capt. John Smith stated that a Featherstun or Featherston died aboard ship and was buried in some creek which was named Featherston or Featherstun (forget what spelling) Creek.

Wish I could give you more information. If you find out more information about the Featherstun clan, we would all enjoy and appreciate it.

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 bee 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!
