Charles Feicht

CHARLES FEICHT, late of Parker's Landing, was the pioneer butcher at that place where he had done business continuously since 1877. He was born March 25, 1838, in Wurtemberg, Germany, son of Christopher and Catherine (Groenmiller) Feicht.

When sixteen years old Mr. Feicht came to the United States, arriving here in 1854, and immediately located at Kittanning, Armstrong county, Pa., where he learned and followed the butcher's trade. Later on he embarked in business for himself, conducting a successful market in Kittanning until in 1869 he came to Parker's Landing, and for eighteen months was in business here. Then he returned to Kittanning, in 1877, however, coming back to Parker's Landing and resuming operations, conducting the best market in the place. He died Nov. 12, 1913, and was buried Nov. 16th at Parker's Landing.

Mr. Feicht was married Jan. 1, 1878, to Mrs. Fredricka (Eberley) Koos, widow of Philip Koos, and daughter of Christian and Johanna (Eisman) Eberley, of Wurtemberg, Germany. Mr. and Mrs. Feicht had four children:

Augusta B., wife of Harry Rader; Frederick C.; Nora C., wife of Frederick Bowser, and William P. By her first marriage Mrs. Feicht had eight children, four of whom survive: Emil Koos, a druggist of Oil City; Albert; Pauline, wife of William Mahoney, of Parker's Landing; and Charles, a merchant of Petersburg. Mrs. Feicht came to America in 1866. The family all belong to the Lutheran Church.

Fraternally Mr. Feicht belonged to Lodge NO. 244, F. & A.M., of Kittanning.

During the Civil war he was a member of the 22nd Pennsylvania Regiment of Emergency Men, and served for three weeks, or as long as the occasion demanded. His political convictions made him a Democrat. After coming to America, in 1854, Mr. Feicht made three trips to his native land.
