In Reply to: Featherman's in Chester County, PA by Chris Featherman of 44

This couple first showed up in the 1820 census rolls for West Nottingham Township. By 1850, they had immigrated to East Nottingham Township close to Oxford, Chester County, PA. It was here that the name changed from Fetterman to Featherman. There were at least seven children born of this marriage. The 1830 census shows one male child and 6 female children. Michael died after 1850, and his wife Elizabeth then lived the rest of her life with their son Ebenezer Featherman. There were two daughters identified through the 1850 census: Adaline and Phebe. Phebe married Jacob Cooper.
