There is a Featherer Genealogy at the Gloucester County Historical Society Library in Woodbuy, New Jersey.The LDS Family History Center also has a copy on microfilm. If you are pursuing the Featherer Line it is worth looking at. It is titled as follows:

The genealogy starts out as follows:
This book contains the known descendents of Jacob Featherer, Revolutionary War Soldier, and his wife Elenore Longaker.Their marriage was found among the records of Swedesboro P.E.Church, Swedesboro, N.J. and the "Rev. Nicholas Collins' Journal and Biography," page 319 which states Jacob was born in Pennsylvania and that he was of the same faith there.Elenore was of Swedish descent but it is not known the original nationality of Jacob.It is believed, however, that he was of German descent, perhaps "Pennsylvania Dutch."The name originally might have been "Fetter."
