On September 25, 1888, she was united in marriage with Simon Feger at New Berlin, Ill. Mr. Feger had also come from Germany a few years before to make his home in this country. Twelve children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Feger, four of them, together with their father, having preceded their mother in death. Mr. Feger passed away on July 28, 1938, just a few weeks before the couple would have celebrated their golden wedding anniversary.
The couple made their home in New Berlin until 1917 when the moved to a farm near Jackson, Minn. Thirteen years ago the family moved to a farm near Superior and have lived in this county since then. Since the death of her husband, Mrs. Feger has made her home with her sons.
