The Fey Story

July 20, 2013

Dear Children

Tonight I want to tell you about our Fey ancestors.

Our Feys came from Prussia. Prussia was where Germany is now, but there was no “Germany” then. The kingdom of Prussia existed from 1701 to 1918. It varied in size over the years depending on who had won the latest battle, but at one time it was very large, stretching from the Baltic sea in to north, to Poland and parts of Russia in the east, and south into the Rhineland. At times it contained parts of Selesia, Pomerania, and even Lithuania. The part of Prussia our Feys were from is now in a German state called Nordrhein-Westfalen.

The earliest Fey we know about was a Heinrich Fey, probably born in the late 1600's in Prussia. We can guess his birth date because we know his son Johann Jost Fey was married in 1746. All we know about him is his name, but we can glean tidbits from the history of the region. For instance, there was a terrible outbreak of Bubonic Plague in Prussia when Heinrich was a boy (1708). One third of the people in Prussia died from the plague, but Heinrich survived. We don't know who Heinrich's wife was or who his children were except for:

Johan Jost Fey who married Agnesa Joerg on the 18th of August in 1746 in the village of Niederdresselndorf, Prussia. We know this because a man named Maxwell Andrae went to Germany and found old church records. Niederdresselndorf and Holzhausen were two little villages close together. Today they are part of the metropolitan community of Burbach in Siegen-Wittgenstein, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany. Nordrhein-Westfalen would correspond to one of our states in the USA, Siegen-Wittgenstein would correspond to a county. Burbach would perhaps correspond to our townships with the village of Burbach being the seat of government for itself and nine other surrounding villages. The river Heller runs through the Burbach community.

Johann Jost and Agnesa had a child, Johann Georg Fey (1752 Niederdresselndorf, Westphalia, Prussia – 1822). He married Catharina Junker (1761-1836). Their seventh child (that we know about) was :

Johann Adam Fey (1800 Holzenhausen, Westphalia, Prussia). He married Anna Thomas (1804 Niederdresselndorf, Westphalia, Prussia - 1848 Prussia) He was known as Adam. He was our immigrant Fey ancestor and so we know a little more about him. He was born during the Napoleonic War, when France under Emperor Napoleon tried to take over the world. Prussia was very involved in this war and sent many soldiers to fight so that when Napoleon met his Waterloo, Prussia was rewarded with lots of territory. This may well be the time when Westphalia became part of Prussia. This all happened when this Adam was a kid. It was all done by 1815 and then the French were gone.
The following is from Elbert J. Wardle, Wintermantle Genealogy: Christian and Mathilda's Family Tree 1799 to 1986, informal publication, July 1986.
" The Adam Fey Family

The Fey family lived on a wheat farm, near Bremen, in Westphalia
province. Adam Fey was a wheat merchant who traveled all over the
world. He made his first trip across the Atlantic when he was
nine years of age. He and his wife, Katherine, had seven
children.”

Minnie told us her Fey grandmother's name was Anna and listed 9 children. Church records indicate there were 12 children. Eight are listed as coming along with Johann Adam in the ship Bremen when he came to America. His son John was already in the USA.

Here is the record from the immigrant ship's log record that brought Johann Adam Fey and the rest of his children to America:

ship: Bremen
From Bremen to New York
Arrived: 20 May 1854

Fey, Adam age 53, farmer, from Prussia, destination Illinois
Adam age 27, farmer, " "
Catherine age 26, unkown, " "
Anna age 21, " " "
Elisabeth age 19 " " "
Carl age 14 " " "
Caroline age 12 " " "
Charlotte age 9, child, " "
Mathilde age 7, child, " “

Here is the note left by my grandmother, Minnie Wintermantle about her mother's family:

"Matilda Fey - daughter of Adam Fey and Anna Thomas Fey - Born in Westphalia, Prussia, May 2, 1845. She was the youngest of nine children Adam, John, Carl, Katherine, Caroline, Anna, Elizabeth, Charlotte, Matilda. Her mother died of TB when Matilda was three years of age. At the age of nine, she and the family came to America and settled in Wisconsin. When she was 20 years old she was married to Christian Wintermantel. For a time they lived in Ackley, Iowa, then in 1883, the family came to Oregon. They lived near Jefferson and in 1891 moved to the Canby district. In 1899 she was married to William Druschell. She died July 2, 1922 at the age of 77, and was buried in Zion Cemetery."

The 1860 census shows Johann Adam and his family living in Sauk County, Troy township, with real estate worth $1500, not bad for 1860.
The 1870 census shows him living with his daughter Elizabeth in Dane County.

In the 1880 census he is living with his son, Adam in the town of Ableman, township of Excelsior, Sauk County, Wisconsin. The town that was once called Ableman is now Rock Springs.

Here is what I found out about Ableman from Wikipedia::

"Named for Col. Stephen Van Rensselaer Ableman, who settled there in 1851. The place was once called Ableman Mills, and once Rock Springs, and for a while Excelsior. The name of Rock Springs was given from the springs at the base of the rocky bluff, and Excelsior from the seal of New York. "

In December 1880 there came to the family of Christian Wintermantel in Ackley, Iowa a letter edged in black. The “letter edged in black” was written on very special stationery that one would purchase to inform far away family members of a death. My grandmother, Minnie Wintermantel, wrote of this letter:

"The black bordered stationery was almost a 'must' as was the black veil the widow wore. The bereaved gentlemen wore crepe bands on their sleeves but not very long. "

This particular letter was especially for Matilda Fey Wintermantel, Christian's wife and the daughter of Johann Adam Fey who died on 4 December 1880 in Sauk County, Wisconsin. The letter is written in German. Here is an English translation:

(Envelope):
“Mr. Christ. Wintermantel
Ackley, Hardin Co, Iowa”

(Letter):
“Ableman, 7 December 1880
Dear Brother-in-Law and Sister:
Father died on Saturday the 4th (December) at 5:45 in the morning, after a 6 week-long illness. He had at the beginning of his illness a weakness with the back and stomach ache. We used the Lebenswecker*, whereupon he was better, but he does not lose the entire weakness, whereupon we let
the doctor come, but as soon as father had the medicine taken away ? was to eat, so that in 9 days, he had forgotten he was to meet with Karl. Brother John, sister Eliza, and Caroline her 3 daughters, which serve in Baraboo, were here for the funeral. Father endured from Friday noon up to his end after much
pain. Father died gladly, since he himself saw, that he cannot have much luck and more happy conditions with his handicap. Father was buried yesterday the 6th of the month, he now has overcome all pain and worries and the ground may be easy to him. The rest of us are well and hope that our letter, to you, finds you well.

Many cordial greetings from all of us to all of you.
Your brother, A. Fey”

The translator added this note about the Lebenswecker:
* Originally invented in the 1850s by Carl Baunscheidt and called a Lebenswecker (German for "Life
Awakener"), this counter-irritation device consisted of an 8" long turned ebony hollow handle, with 30
small needles in one end which the operator coats with Baunscheidt's inflammatory oil. A spiral spring
concealed in the handle is then pulled back and let go to drive the 30 needles and their irritating oil into
the skin.".

Here follows a little of what we know of Johann Adam and Anna Thomas Fey's nine children:

Adam Fey (1827 Prussia – 1905 Ableman, Wisconsin) married Johanna Reuter. In 1880 the Wisconsin State Historical Society published A History of Sauk County. This is what they wrote about this Adam Fey:

"Adam Fey, Merchant, Ableman, son of Adam and Anna (Thomas) Fey; born in Holtzhousen, Prussia, Feb. 10, 1827; lived in Prussia till 1854, when he moved to Iowa, where he remained till he came to Wisconsin in 1855, locating in the town of Troy, Sauk County, where he was engaged in farming for four years; in 1869, he moved to Spring Green, and opened a general store, and in 1871, removed to Ableman, where he now resides; he is dealing in general merchandise, and has a large, well-stocked store in company with L. Goedecke. He was married at Madison, Wis., May 5, 1872 to Hannah Rueder, daughter of Adolph Rueder; have had two boys - Adolph and one unnamed.”

The boy unnamed would have been Maxemilian. It appears neither he nor five others of their children survived to adulthood. On the 1910 census his mother, Johanna Fey, reports she has given birth to six children and only one survived. That one was Gustave Adolph. He continued his father's business as a merchant in Ableman, Wisconsin and must have done quite well with it. The 1930 census shows him to be the owner of a $15,000 home with two radios! A lot of wealth for that time.

Katherine Fey (1828 Prussia - USA) married Benedict Roth from Switzerland and had at least six children.

John Fey (1830 Prussia – 1915 Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin) married Lozina Violetta Hornbeck.. John was the son that came from Germany ahead of the rest of his family. Like some of our Wintermantel ancestors he was avoiding conscription into the Hessian army that was rented out to countries all over Europe.. He immigrated in 1853, one year before the rest of his family, arriving from Bremen in New York Harbor on May 2, 1853 on the ship Mathilde. Perhaps he was the one to find a good place for his family to settle in Sauk County, Wisconsin. In 1867 he married married Lozina Violetta Hornbeck.. John and Lozina had six children. The 1880 census shows him living with his family in Prairie du Sac, WI and he is a saloon keeper. By 1910 he and his family are still in Prairie du Sac but his occupation has changed to village clerk. By far the most amazing thing about John Fey is this: his great-granddaughter, A. A. Fey, had seventeen children! This was not back in the 1800's but in the 1950's and 60's. A.A. And her husband live in Monroe, Wisconsin. They are very active octogenarians and have fantastic family reunions.

Anna Fey (1833 Prussia - USA) We no nothing further about this Anna.

Elizabeth Fey (1835 Prussia - USA) married August Gastine Reuter and they had eight children in Wisconsin. August died in Dane County, Wisconsin in 1890. The 1880 census shows August working as a day laborer, their son Augustas working as a harness maker, and their daughters Emma and Rosette working as seamstresses. Just think how many seamstresses it must have taken to keep the world clothed before the advent of sewing machines!

Carl Fey (1839 Prussia – aft 1910 Reedsburg, Wisconsin) The 1860 census shows a Charles Fey living with the Johann Adam Fey family but no Carl. Since Charles is the age that Carl should have been I assume this person and Carl are one and the same. Carl appeared on the 1900 census and the 1910 census as a resident of the County Poor Farm in Reedsburg. His occupation - “pauper.”

Caroline Fey (1841 Prussia – 1891 Troy, Wisconsin) married Ludwig Diehl, a farmer from Prussia. They lived in the township of Troy, Sauk County, Wisconsin, and together raised at least twelve children.

Charlotte Fey (1843 Prussia - Wisconsin) The 1870 census shows Charlotte as a 26 year old seamstress living with the family of Louis Goedecke In Spring Green, Wisconsin. Her brother Adam is listed there as well. In the 1880 census she is living with her brother Adam and his family in Excelsior, Sauk County, Wisconsin and she is listed as Carlotta rather than Charlotte.

Matilda Ella Fey (1845 Prussia – 1922 Canby, Oregon) is the last child of Johann Adam Fey and is our ancestor.

This is what Elbert Wardle wrote about Matilda in his Wintermantel genealogy in 1986:

"Matilda, our grandmother, was the youngest child and was two and a half years old when her mother died. Her father, sisters and brothers took care of her.
On their trip across the ocean she had her ninth birthday. They were on a sailing ship and the sea was stormy and very rough. Two icebergs were closing in on both sides of the ship and crashed together just behind them. Although Matilda was only nine, she remembers her father holding her and her sister Charlotte on his knees and comforting them while many of the passengers prayed. This trip took six weeks. Upon arrival in America the Fey family settled on a farm at Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin."

And there she grew until 9 November 1865 when she married a neighbor and returning Civil War soldier, Christian Wintermantel. Her story continues in the Wintermantel section of this history, but it also continues after that section, because Matilda outlived Christian by 25 years.

After 31 years of marriage Matilda Fey Wintermantel became a widow when Christian died in October, 1897. She married William Druschel in October of 1899. He died in June of 1907 and Matilda was a widow once again. Christian's pension file details where Matilda lived from the time her second husband died until her death. In 1900 Matilda and William are living in Canby. She lived there until March of 1908 when she moved to Seattle. She lived there until March 1910 when she moved to Tacoma, Washington. The 1910 census shows Matilda living at 1323 S. M Street, Tacoma, Washington with the families of both daughters, Minnie and Ella. A year later she moved to North Yakima,Washington for one year, then Tacoma, Washington again for two years, and then Portland, Oregon until December 1917. I suspect in all these moves she was living with various of her children. After that she moved back to Canby, Oregon with her daughter and son-in-law, Louisa and John Koehler. And that is where she died of heart disease on 2 July 1922.

I have a huge file of copies of Christian's pension file. She applied to receive benefits as Christian's widow after he died, to receive benefits for his two daughters who were still underage at his death, and to again receive widows benefits from Christian after the death of her second husband, William Druschel. It is very interesting reading. The number of depositions involved is truly astounding. Bureaucracy and paper work were not invented in the 20th century. On page 83 of the file, April 18, 1918, is a letter from Matilda to the Honorable C. N. McArthur. She writes:

"Two years ago I applied to renew my pension with no results. Now they tell me I must submit the same paper work all over again. Can you please help me? "

She did succeed in her claims and at the time of her death was receiving 30 dollars per month.

One more interesting thing about Matilda and William Druschel. They both lived in Canby, Oregon with their first families. Each of them had eleven children with their first spouses. Another neighbor family was that of Adam and Elizabeth Zimmerman. Adam and Elizabeth's daughter Emma married one of William Druschel's sons from his first marriage, Charles. Adam and Elizabeth's son George married one of Matilda Fey Wintermantel Druschel's daughters from her first marriage, Minnie.

So these are our Fey ancestors. We only have records of five generations, but very important generations as they cover the time when the Feys came to America. They had a perilous journey across the ocean and braved many hardships They established new lives in America and left many descendants, even us!

So Hooray for the Feys!

    The Adam Fey Family

    The Fey family lived on a wheat farm, near Bremen, in Westphalia
    province. Adam Fey was a wheat merchant who traveled all over the
    world. He made his first trip across the Atlantic when he was
    nine years of age. He and his wife, Katherine, had seven
    children.

    Matilda, our grandmother, was the youngest child and was two and
    a half years old when her mother died. Her father, sisters and
    brothers took care of her.

    On their trip across the Ocean to America she had her ninth
    birthday. They were on a sailing ship and the sea was stormy and
    very rough. Two icebergs were closing in on both sides of the
    ship and crashed together just behind them. Although Matilda was
    only nine, she remembers her father holding her and her sister
    Charlotte on his knees and comforting them while many of the
    passengers prayed. This trip took six weeks.

    Upon arrival in America the Fey family settled on a farm at
    Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin. This is a very short distance from
    Sauk City, Wisconsin.

    Some records say that Matilda Fey and Christian Wintermantel met
    and married and started their family in Prairie du Sac and some
    say Sauk City.

    At date of death CW left property: 490 acres of land near Jefferson, OR; 80 acres at Canby; Will left all property to MW;”130 acres of the property at Jefferson was under cultivation. I rented that for 1/3 of the crop. On average I would get 300 bu wheat 50cents/bu and 100bu oats 30 cents/bu. This place I worked myself for the first few years. There was about 40 acres under cultivation. I have since sold most of it. My taxes were on both places about $70 - $80 per year. No insurance. There was indebtedness of $2600 with interest of 7 and 8%. No other property except few head of stock, farming implements, and household goods... No money in bank or investments of any kind.”
