      Excerpted from "The Feucht Family Record" dated ABT 1968

      Carl Feucht, fifth child of Johann and Jacobena, was born in Finsteroth, Wurttemberg, Germany, on April 10, 1881. At the little village school, he received education until the age of fourteen. When not in school, he would be found helping in the garden and orchard on his parents small acreage.

      In 1895 (at the age of 14) he and his sister, Frieda, came to America and went to Schambach's in Elgin, 111. He farmed near Elgin for about nine years.

      On September 22, 1904, he married Emma Marie Knobloch at Elgin, 111. That same year, they moved to Stark, 111., and farmed here for about a year and a half.

      Then in the spring of 1906, they moved to Iowa and farmed south of Lester. They became members of the Apostolic Christian Church in September 1906.

      His wife, Emma, passed away suddenly at the age of 24 years, on February 15, 1907, leaving two small sons, Ernst (1^ years old) and Ben (1 week old).

      On February 18, 1908, he married Emma's older sister, Pauline Christine Knobloch. They farmed south of Lester and completely built the homestead. Thirteen children were born to this union.

      Both Carl and Pauline enjoyed traveling and entertaining and did a great deal of both. Carl passed away July 11, 194-9, after a lingering illness and on February 6, 1963, Pauline passed away.

      From IAGenWeb Lyon County Genealogy

      Carl Feucht was born April 10, 1881 in Wurttenberg, Germany. At the age of 14, he and his sister came to America because of better living conditions and no military service for young men.

      Carl worked as a hired man in the Elgin, Illinois area. On September 22, 1904, he married Emma Marie Knobloch. Later that year, he moved to Stark, Illinois. He farmed for about a year and a half and on August 4, 1905, their first son, Ernst, was born.

      In the spring of 1906, they moved to Iowa and rented a farm 3 miles south and a ½ mile west of Lester. Ben was born February 8, 1907, and due to complications from his childbirth, Emma passed away on February 15, 1907.

      Carl remarried February 18, 1908, to Emmaâ€â„¢s sister Pauline. A third son, Emil, was born on November 4, 1908. At this time he decided to homestead here and purchased 160 acres of prairie land 1 mile west and 1 3/4 miles south of Lester. He hired Theodore Goldsmith to build their home and farm buildings. Mr. Goldsmith lived with Carl and Pauline during the week and was a skilled carpenter as the barn frame was built with wooden pegs. The barn was destroyed by a fire on September 16, 1988. Carl hauled some of the lumber with team and wagon from Lou Chamberlain Lumber of Lester.

      By 1937 Carl owned and farmed a section of land. Over the years, they had horses, a few dairy cows, hogs, cattle, ducks, geese and chickens. Many times the chickens were dressed and sold in Sioux Falls to various eating places and sold to meat markets. The family butchered all of their own meat and this tradition is still carried on by some of the Feucht family. Carl enjoyed buying and selling horses to neighbors and horse buyers for use in the infantry during World War I.

      Some of the things they did in the area were custom corn shelling, threshing, witching for water and doing errands for others when Carl went to Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

      Pauline enjoyed gardening, flowers and baking. Her favorites were breads and apple kuchen. For relaxation she did crocheting and other handwork.
