Occupation: shoemaker, machinist, electrician

George Feige was born on January 27, 1867 in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. He was the son of Prussian immigrants, Wilhelm Friedrich Feige and Augusta Amelia Theunert. George lived in Pittsfield from birth to early adulthood. He married Charlotte Salisbury on February 16, 1887 in Auburn, New York. George’s older sister, Ellen, and her husband, Frank Shorey, were living in Auburn at the time. They are probably in some way associated with George going there and eventually marrying there. Shortly after their marriage, the couple moved back to Pittsfield. George worked in a variety of occupations. His sister, Louisa, married Jacob Gimlich. Jacob was part owner of a brewery, Gimlich & White. George worked there for a while around 1889. Around 1890, George and Charlotte moved back to Auburn, NY. George became a shoemaker. He worked as a shoemaker until around 1899, at which time they moved to Webster, Massachusetts. George worked as a machinist in Webster. He later worked for his nephew, Charles W. Bergmann, and did bicycle repair work. This was around 1907. By 1912, he was working for Charles W. Bergmann, but was now an electrician. By 1928, George opened his own electrical supply store, located on School Street in Webster. He died in Webster on August 28, 1930, at the age of 63.

There is a Henry Feig born March 16, 1896 listed in the World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 living at 109 School St. in Webster. Birthplace listed as Bohemia;Austria. Related?
