Re: James Featherstone Henderson County NC

James Featherstone appears on the 1870 in the household of one Samuel Shipman. The entry reads:

Samuel Shipman age 31, Male, Black, Farmer
Malina Shipman, age 27, black, keeping house.
Jas. (James) FEatherstone, age 50, Black, Farm Laborer

On the same page, which means in the same neighborhood is one HULDAH Featherstone, age 26 and her 6 children; and a white family headed by one S.T. Featherstone who appears to own quite a bit of property.


James Featherstone was my gggrandfather born abt 1831 and lived in Henderson County NC. He is found on the Blue Ridge Township Census of 1870. Could someone lookup to see who his family was?
