Friedrich Wilhelm Feige was born in Marklissa, Prussia, Germany on June 7, 1824. His father was Friedrich Wilhelm Feige. His mother’s name is not known. He worked as a weaver, and later, a farmer. In 1845, he married Augusta Amelia Theunert. Augusta was born November 4, 1823 in Lauban, Prussia, Germany. She was the daughter of Johann Carl Gottlieb Theunert and Johanne Rosalie Mennig. Wilhelm and Augusta arrived in New York on December 10, 1853. They traveled on the ship Donau, embarking from Marseilles. Wilhelm was 29 years old. Augusta was 30. They traveled with their 10-year-old daughter, Amalie; 6-year-old twins, Alwine and Louise; and a 4-year-old son, Carl. Augusta’s sister, Maria (age 24), and her husband Augustus Froehlich were also aboard Donau, along with Augusta’s unmarried sisters Henrietta (age 19) and Rosalie (age 27). It appears that the family initially went to Mechanicville, NY in late 1853-1854, although this is not completely proven. By 1855, they were all in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Wilhelm worked in a factory in 1855. In 1860, he is listed as a loom fixer. In 1869, he is a grocer, and by 1880, a farmer, owning property on Churchill Street in the North Woods section of Pittsfield. In 1891, he appears to be working for his son-in-law, at Gimlich & White. He died in Pittsfield on June 9, 1892 at the age of 68. Sometime after Wilhelm’s death, Augusta moved to Auburn, NY to live with her son George and his wife, Charlotte. She returned to Pittsfield before her death on May 27, 1900. She was 76 years old. According to her obituary, Augusta was an active member of Zion’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Pittsfield for many years.

NOTE: I think he might have a brother, August (or Karl August)
