  • Notes 


    • Charles Ervin Featherstone Sr. was born in Gaston County, NorthCarolina. His death certificate states that his usual occupation at thetime of his death was a 'retired' textile worker. His birth date isstated at November, 5, 1890. His attending physician, Dr. Scruggs statedhe died of a perforated stomach ulcer, on June 5th 1948, his age atdeath was noted as 57 years and 7 months. His parents are stated asJoseph Featherstone and Mary Neagle of Gaston County, and his wife asWillie Sipe Featherstone. His usual residence was stated as RFD #1, Mt.Holly, Gaston County, North Carolina The burial was noted to be on June6, 1948 at the Greenwood Cemetery, in Belmont, by Fite Funeral Home.

      Of interest concerning his grave site at the Greenwood Cemetery, youwill find that his tombstone was originally engraved as 'Featherstone'with an 'e,' which was 'mysteriously filled in with cement' after hisdeath and burial, no doubt by one of the 'more stubborn' family members,who were adamant that his name was spelled 'Featherston.' Thus along-standing family debate regarding the spelling of our surname hasnow been immortalized in STON(E)......FEATHERSTONE that is, with an 'e.' [1]
