Surname Saturday - FEATHER (NJ > PA)

It's Surname Saturday, and I'm "counting down" my Ahnentafel list each week. I'm up to number 49, who is Sarah Feather (1804-1848).

My ancestral line back through the three generations of my Feather ancestral families:

1. Randall J. Seaver

2. Frederick W. Seaver (1911-1983)
3. Betty V. Carringer (1919-2002)

6. Lyle Lawrence Carringer (1891-1976)
7. Emily Kemp Auble (1899-1977)

12. Henry Austin Carringer (1853-1946)
13. Abbie Ardell Smith (1864-1944)

24. David Jackson Carringer (1823-1902)
25. Rebecca Spangler (1828-1901)

48. Heinrich/Henry Carringer, born 06 June 1800 in Sandy Creek, Mercer County, PA, and died 10 August 1881 in Columbus City, Louisa County, IA. He was the son of Martin Carringer and Mary Magdalena Molly Hoax. He married before 1825 in Mercer County, PA.
49. Sarah Feather, born 07 June 1804 in Warren, Trumbull County, OH; died 09 April 1848 in Perry, Mercer County, PA.

98. Cornelius Feather, born 1777 in Middlesex County, NJ; died 1852 in Salem, Mercer County, PA. He married before 1804 in probably Trumbull County, OH.
99. Mrs. Cornelius Feather, born before 1785 in CT; died before 1830 in probably Mercer County, PA.

Children of Cornelius Feather and Mrs. Feather are: Sarah (1804-1848), John (1806-????); George (1808-1890); Mary Ann (1815-????).

196. Stephen Feather, born about 1736 in Germany; died 1804 in Westmoreland County, PA.

Children of Stephen Feather are: John (1760-1838); David (1765-????); Stephen (1774-????); Cornelius (1777-1852); Anna (1786-1839).

I wrote about The Elusive Stephen Feather (ca 1740-1804) and The Elusive --?-- (who married Cornelius Feather) in earlier posts. There are several other researchers working on this Feather family, but the lack of records has hampered the search process. Or perhaps it's that we aren't looking in all the right places?

If there are any Feather cousins out there, I would appreciate hearing from you via email at
