Notes:

1880 census - Saloon Keeper

On both 1900 and 1910 censuses he says he immigrated in 1853.

email from R Fey H - 24 Jul 2013 - "John Fey was the city clerk for Prairie du Sac, bookseller, and had a tavern...As I understand it, John Fey came to the US after his mother died to avoid conscription into the military. He was then followed by his father and siblings."

from "The Fey Story" by Dianne Z. Stevens - 2013
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.

Lozina Violetta Hornbeck:

Notes:

A A Fey's record shows Lozina was born in Centerberg, Knox, Ohio.

email from R Fey H - 24Jul2013 - Lozina Violetta Hornbeck, whose great-grandfather was a patriot, made me a member of the Daughter of the American Revolution."
