    USS (U.S.A.T) Thomas (1894) shown in dry-dock in 1916
    The John Henry Featherston, Sr., his wife and eldest son sailed aboard this ship in 1927 from Manila to San Francisco.

    WIKI: USAT Thomas was a United States Army transport ship, launched as the SS Persia in 1894, having been built for the Hamburg America Line's service to New York.
    ...
    Thomas could accommodate 100 officers, 1,200 men and 1,000 horses, and also had refrigerated capacity for shipping 1,000 pounds (450 kg) of meat,[1] particularly prized because beef was considered an essential element of the military diet.[2]
    ...
    [The ship was renamed] Minnewaska [and] was one of six Atlantic Transport Line ships requisitioned by the U.S. Government for service as transports during the Spanish-American War, and purchased on 26 July 1898 for $660,000 and renamed Thomas after General George Henry Thomas, a hero of the American Civil War battle of Chickamauga.[1]
    ...
    In early 1916, the USS Thomas broke its propeller on a voyage from San Francisco to Manila and put into Honolulu for repairs. The floating dry dock that was available had a capacity of only 4,500 tons, while the Thomas was an 11,000 ton vessel, and 118 feet longer than the dry dock. Engineers allowed the bow to extend beyond the front of the dry dock granting them access to stern which was lifted out of the water, allowing them to replace the damaged propeller.[3]
    ...
    Thomas made several trips to the Orient from New York via the Panama Canal, but was used mainly on the Manila run, stopping at Honolulu and Guam on the westward trip, and Nagasaki, Japan, and Chinwangtao, China, on the return voyage. She was the last of the more than 50 transports acquired by the U.S. Government in 1898 to remain in service and was eventually sold for scrap in July 1928.[1]

    Featherston, John Henry, Sr: 1927 Manila to San Francisco 2
    This is following page of the manifest showing John Featherston's wife and son arriving in San Francisco, CA. They were all aboard the U.S. Army Transport (U.S.A.T.) Thomas that had sailed on 05 May 1927 from Manila, Philippines and finally arrived in SF on 31 May 1927. John Featherston, Sr, was born in Woodbury, GA and was a 29-year old lieutenant in the Army's Field Artillery. Margaret and John, Jr. were both born in Portsmouth, VA. John, Jr. is occasionally listed in some genealogy records as the "III". However, his military records reflect Jr. as does his headstone in the Netherlands.
