William J Feller and his wife Catherine Fraleigh at rightCatharine Fraleigh and Wm Feller

William was born 23 Aug 1798 in Taghkanic, NY to Jacob Felter and Anna Delamater. Catherine was born 22 Aug 1800 in NY to Peter P Fraleigh and Elizabeth Schmidt. Peter P Fraleigh was one of this author’s ancestors. William and Catherine married 7 Oct 1821 according to her father’s bible. They had at least two children: Mary Feller 1827-1913 who married Alfred Rennsalaer Westfall and George W Feller.

George was born 15 Dec 1831 presumably in the area of Germantown, NY. He married first Barbara Anna Younghanse (born c. 1835 daughter of Henry Jonkhans of Gallatin) on 2 Oct 1854. It’s presumed that she died before 1870 as in that census, George was married again to Sarah Saulpaugh, a daughter of John I Saulpaugh. Sarah died 3 Mar 1898. George left a large sum of money to his sister Mary when he died and they did not have any children. George and Sarah lived in Nevis, a hamlet south of Clermont, NY. Their portraits are below and they might be buried at a Lutheran cemetery in the area.
