Sharp, “privately and apart from their husbands, Edward Featherston and M. D. Sharp,” concerning a deed executed by them jointly to David C. Hibbits.39 (see under Henry Featherston.) Clearly, Phoebe (Featherston) Sharp had died before Oct 1825, and from the births of his children, it seems likely she died about 1820 in either Rutherford or Sumner Co., Tennessee

     Lucius Horace Featherston was born on 9 June 1814 at Murfreesboro, Rutherford County, Tennessee, United States Of AmericaG.1 He was the son of Charles Featherston and Lucy Pitts.1 Lucius Horace Featherston married Maria Ann Tompkins on 27 December 1836 at Heard County, Georgia, United States Of AmericaG.1 Lucius Horace Featherston died on 4 January 1886 at Newnan, Coweta County, Georgia, United States Of AmericaG.1 He was buried after 4 January 1886 at Oak Hill Cemetery, Newnan, Coweta County, Georgia, United States Of AmericaG.1
     Lucius Horace Featherston was born in Tennessee, but moved to Columbus, Georgia, as a young man, where he went into business with his brother Edward. He later moved to Franklin, in Heard County, Georgia, where he met and married Maria Ann Tompkins, daughter of Nicholas Tompkins and Catherine Griffin Leverett. He was admitted to the bar in Heard County, and represented that county in the Georgia Legislature. He served in the Seminole Indian war of 1836-1843 and was made Brigadier General of the State Militia. He also served as Judge of the Superior Court of his Circuit from 1863 to 1867. He furnished three sons, Charles Nicholas, Giles Winfield, and Lucius Horace, to the Confederate Army. His brother, Winfield Scott Featherston, was a Brigadier General in the Confederate Army, who lived in Corinth, Mississippi, after the Civil War. He was a member of the Constitutional Convention of 1877, following which Georgia was re-admitted to the Union. In December 1869, he moved to Newnan Ga., where he was one of the prominent members of the Newnan bar. He was noted to be a staunch Democrat., and a member of the Methodist church.

From his obituary in the Newnan Herald of 1886:
To the legal profession it would be no revelation to affirm that a more upright layer, a purer gentleman never lived. Judge Buchanan, R. S. Burgh, Judge J. S. Bigby, J. B. S. Davis, Samuel Freeman, W. A. Turner, H. A. Hall, W. Y. Atkinson, P. F. Smith, bore testimony that his record as a soldier was spotless, as a judge he was kind and just, as a lawyer he was able and honest, as a citizen his character was worthy of emulation.

The Last Will and Testament of Lucius H. Featherston was written 17 February 1885 and proved 6 January 1886 in Newnan, Coweta County, Georgia Coweta County and State of Georgia


Although George Cuttino did not comment on it, L. H. Featherston’s marriage to Maria Tompkins brought him into the family of one of the richest men in the county. Nicholas Tompkins held 62 slaves and owned 8,000 acres of land valued at $50,000. His productions for 1860 included 90 bales of cotton and 3,000 bushels of corn. He had moved to Putnam Co., and then to Troup Co. about 1830 and settled on land now within the bounds of Heard Co. He served during the Seminole War, holding a commission as major. He also served as a soldier in the war with Mexico. He married first Catherine Griffin Leverett, daughter of Thomas Leverett, a Baptist minister, and Mary Griffin, born 25 July 1794, died 10 May 1836, near Franklin, Ga. 61
Nicholas Tompkins, our grandfather married the first time, Katharine Griffen Leverette, a daughter of Thomas Leverette, a Baptist minister.62 They had six children, five daughters and one son, viz: Giles S., Maria Ann, Mary Ellen, Sarah, Katharine, and Emily Eubanks. Nicholas Tompkins married and settled in Putnam Co., Ga., and after living there twenty years he moved to Heard Co. & died there.

     Featherston, Winfield Scott, soldier, b. in Rutherford County, Tennessee, 8 Aug. 1820. He was educated at various academies, and in 1836, while at school in Georgia, served for three months as a volunteer against the Creek Indians. He then studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1840. He was afterward elected to Congress as a Democrat , and served in 1847-1851, but was defeated for a third term by the Union candidate. He was a presidential elector on the Democratic ticket in 1852, and was sent by his state to Kentucky in December 1860 to confer with the authorities on the subject of succession. In May 1861 he became colonel of the 17th Mississippi Regt. He served in Virginia in 1861-62, and on 4 March 1862 was promoted to brigadier general for gallantry at Ball’s Bluff. He was wounded on the fifth day of the battles around Richmond and, in January 1863, was transferred to Vicksburg at his own request. He commanded an expedition sent to meet Porter’s gun-boats, ascending Deer Creek, joined Johnston in Georgia in May 1864 and continued with that Army till the surrender in 1865, commanding a division much of the time. After the war he returned to the practice of law and was a member of the Mississippi legislature in 1876-78 and 1880-1882. In 1881 he became judge of the 2nd Judicial Circuit of the state.56

Winfield Scott Featherston was admitted to the bar at Houston, Mississippi, and began his successful legal career in 1840. He was elected on the Democratic ticket to the Thirtieth and Thirty-First United States Congresses (1847-1851) over strong opposition. In 1850, he was again a candidate for Congress, but was defeated. At the outbreak of the Civil War he was elected colonel of the 17th Miss. Regt., and took part in several important battles and was wounded during the Battle of Seven Days before Richmond. Following the battle at Leesburg, he was promoted to the rank of brigadier general. In Mississippi, Featherston took command of a brigade of Major General Loring’s division, when General Joseph Johnston requested a skilled brigadier. [He was elected to the Mississippi legislature after the war]. During his last term, he served in the capacity of chairman of the judiciary committee and assisted in the revision of the state code of 1880. Two years later, he became judge of the second judicial circuit of Mississippi. His last public service was as a member of the judiciary committee at the Constitutional Convention in 1890. One year later, May 28, 1891, Winfield Scott Featherston died at his home in Holly Springs,Mississippi.57

He did postdoctoral work at the University of London in 1938 and 1939. He served in U. S. Army Intelligence 1942-1946; 1951-52, a attained the rank of Major. He was professor of history at Emory University until his death.65 He collected the family history on which this report is largely based. I remember meeting him once about 1958 when we went to his house in the Druid Hills neighborhood near Emory. The house, as I recall, was very “modern” which means 1950’s, and was designed by his brother, David, who was an architect. George had the first stereophonic record player I recall hearing. I do remember him demonstrating the ability of the “stereo” to create a sense of aural space. When I visited Emory in the spring of 1966 when choosing a college, I was told that George, who was professor of history at Emory, was famous for delivering at least one lecture every year in middle English. George is buried in the same cemetery plot in Newnan as his grandfather, Lucius H. Featherston. His marker proudly lists his BA,MA and D Phil (Oxon).1
