I found some roots of my family (Feiten) in Bengel (near Trier / Germany) and I know, that some parts of this families emmigratet to the states (WI).
Does anyone know immigrants with the surname Feiten (or Feithen) from Bengel (Germany) who arrived in the states in the 1830's or 1840's ?

If this is the Feiten family you are seeking, there should be more information at the Hartford History Room in Hartford, Washington County, Wisconsin.


Aber "emmigratet". Ich glaube du bist Deutscher? Möchtest du meine Hilfe? Bitte, schick mir ein Email weil es gibt kein Problem. Hoffentlich ich soll Grabsteine, Dokumente, Daten, usw. dieses Familie finden.

Enschudigung aber es gibt keine Beziehungen für mich. Ich bin nur ein Seelengut. Und meine Oma sagt dass meine Mutti war "nicht Engel aber Bengel!" Ich fand es ganz witzig diese Stadt heisst Bengel!

If anyone is still researching the Feiten name in Wisconsin, there are entries for Caspar, Helen, and Magdalena Feiten in the index of German newspapers published in Milwaukee.

My GGrandfather is a Feithen. He was orphaned at an early age and we have been searching (rather fruitlessly) for his parents. Have you heard any stories floating around? Any info would be helpful. He was born in New York in 1881.
Thank you.
