1920 Census she is living with daughter Louise
This story was told by our cousin's grandmother, Ethel Fey Hornschuch. "The Fey's were on a ship coming to America when a great storm hit. The family knelt on the deck and prayed, and were saved. Her recollection was that the mother was in ill health, and made her husband promise to take the girls to America and raise them there after she died."
Matilda Fey - daughter of Adam Fey and Anna Thomas Fey - Born in Westphalia, Prussia, May 2, 1845. She was the youngest of nine children Adam, John, Carl, Katherine, Caroline, Anna, Elizabeth, Charlotte, Matilda. Her mother died of TB when Matilda was three years of age. At the age of nine, she and the family came to America and settled in Wisconsin. When she was 20 years old she was married to Christian Wintermantel. For a time they lived in Ackley, Iowa, then in 1883, the family came to Oregon. They lived near Jefferson and in 1891 moved to the Canby district. In 1899 she was married to William Druschell. She died July 2, 1922 at the age of 77, and was buried in Zion Cemetery."
The Adam Fey Family
The Fey family lived on a wheat farm, near Bremen, in Westphalia
province. Adam Fey was a wheat merchant who traveled all over the
world. He made his first trip across the Atlantic when he was
nine years of age. He and his wife, Katherine, had seven
Matilda, our grandmother, was the youngest child and was two and
a half years old when her mother died. Her father, sisters and
brothers took care of her.
On their trip across the Ocean to America she had her ninth
birthday. They were on a sailing ship and the sea was stormy and
very rough. Two icebergs were closing in on both sides of the
ship and crashed together just behind them. Although Matilda was
only nine, she remembers her father holding her and her sister
Charlotte on his knees and comforting them while many of the
passengers prayed. This trip took six weeks.
Upon arrival in America the Fey family settled on a farm at
Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin. This is a very short distance from
Sauk City, Wisconsin.
Some records say that Matilda Fey and Christian Wintermantel met
and married and started their family in Prairie du Sac and some
say Sauk City.
