Hi, I am helping my nephew research his Mothers ancestry. Her Grandfather was Walter Feathers, her Mother was May Elizabeth Feathers, born in Rochester, NY (no date) I would guess in the mid 1930's., since my nephew's Mother was born in 1958. She said her Grandfather was Indian., hence the Feathers and his name was Sonny and he had a son he named Sonny, she called him Uncle Sonny (not sure if that is correct spelling.) It could be possible that your Feathers name is Indian. In Family Search, I fould Walter Tail Feathers B. 1889 Piegan Tribe. BF Agncy. Montana. Father Tail Feathers, Mother Jane Tail Feathers. Hope this helps. Happy hunting.
