My earliest "Featherkile sighting" (it's like looking for yetis) is the 1789 tithables list in Nelson Co., KY, a widow whose name is spelled every which way but is probably Eulila. There is also a George Featherkile who is on the tithables and militia rolls in 1790, 1792, etc., who seems to be her son. By 1792, at least, she is definitely referred to as a widow--the owner of record of her property, etc. The 1790 George could be her husband, but we know she had a grown son by that name, so it is probably him. May have come out of Virginia? family may be German? Does this fit with anything anyone else knows? I can come up with a list of her children and their marriages if that would help anyone--many of them, at least, moved to Indiana.
