?4. Samuel Felton
Corp 10th Regiment, 1782 – Revolutionary War

  1. WILLIAM H. FELTON, a member of Congress 6 years from Ga., 1875 to 1881, says his grandfather, Job Felton, removed from North Carolina to Georgia about 1785, and died an aged man. Dr. Felton’s father, John Felton, was born in 1790, and lived 80 years. Hon. Wm. H. Felton was born June 19, 1823; graduated at Georgia Medical College. Dr. Felton also wrote, “There was one of the old brothers, (sup. of his grandfather,) who lived in the lower counties of North Carolina, and some members of that family are in Macon Co., Georgia.” [from Cyrus Felton 1886]

Historic Almanac of the US Senate by Robert J Dole
First Woman Senator Appointed
“Rebecca Latimer was born in Georgia in 1835, during Andrew Jackson’s second administration. She graduated with honors from Madison Female College in 1852 and fifteen months later married the commencement speaker, William Felton, a Methodist minister and physician Both husband and wife shared a strong commitment to women’s rights. The Feltons lost their sons, their farm, and their fortune during the Civil War. In 1874, Dr. Felton, running as an Independent, was elected to the House of Representatives and the couple moved to Washington, where Mrs. Felton served as her husband’s secretary and wrote a weekly column for her hometown newspaper. When Dr Felton was defeated in 1880, they returned to Georgia and began their own newspaper to push the reform measures they held dear. When William Felton died in 1909, Rebecca traveled the reformer’s route alone. As Rebecca Felton, white haired and bespectacled, entered the Senate chamber on November 21 [1922] to take her oath, she found it overflowing with cheering women. Two years after ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment guaranteeing all women the right to vote, the nation had its first woman senator.”

e-mail 26 Sept 08
Dear Sally.My name is Cora Felton Anderson and I have just read your postings about your southern line of Feltons. I am the Historian for the Felton Family Association which was formed in 1988 for the purpose of preserving and documenting our common history as a family. I would like to let you know that I have traced our family backwards to the twelve hundreds when a second son was given the village as his inheritance. I have been able to follow the family down through the generation to learn that your southern and my northern lines are both descended from the same family in England. Our Nathaniel who came in 1633 was one generation older than Richard who arrived in the South. By pure chance several years back I found an old document when I was in England that gives the marriage of Richard Felton to Alice that shows he was a part of our same line of Feltons. This meant that they were cousins just a generation apart.

I am working on a new book of our history as a family and will enter this information into it when I can get it published.

I am happy to share most on my materials and would love to have our FFA to include all of the Feltons in the US that descend from this line.

I wish you a happy day.

Most Sincerely, Cora Felton Anderson, A Northern Felton cousin
Cora’s e-mail.. she would be “most happy to help anyone who is searching their Felton history”

5 thoughts on “Jethro Felton & Mary Clark”

  1. Me (Martha) again. I’ve been looking at Ancestry. One Richard Felton was listed in the 1753 Chowan County Census.There seem to be two Richard Feltons in Chowan County by 1758, Richard and Richard Jr. Both are listed in the 1758 NC Census, listed as Gates County on Ancestry. Gates County was organized from parts of Chowan, Hertford, and Perquimans counties, but not until 1779.

  2. What an amazing amount of research you have done!

    I am a descendant of Job Felton — the one who “went to Georgia and died at an advanced age,” through his daughter Jemima Felton who married Thomas Connell. I didn’t have his wife’s name, but found through your information that her name was Sarah. My daughter’s name!

    Thank you for posting all this information!

    1. I am trying to trace my family tree back as far as I am able to. I came across this page and I’m not very good at all this. My great great grandfathers name was Nathan Monroe Felton, and he married a lady by the name of either “Mary Atlanta Georgia Graves” or ” Mary Etta Adaline Graves. He was born in Lawrence County Missouri and she in Bear Creek Arkansas.
      My eyes are crossed by all the research lately, and I was just wondering if you had maybe ran across their names, as like cousins or distant relatives or something?

      It would be awesome to hear back from you. You have done an amazing job with all the information I’ve read here.

      Thank you

      Rebekah Lynn
