JOHN G. FEY. — Through his industry and discernment has John G. Fey gained prestige as a representative ranchman of this section of the state. He was born in Lewis county, N. Y., on November 12, 1864, the son of Lewis and Kate (Noll) Fey, both of whom were born in Germany.
The father came to the United States when about twenty-seven years of age, locating in Lewis county, N. Y., where he has ever since been engaged in farming and dairying, he and his wife still residing on the old homestead. John G. Fey early was inured to the work incidental to the rugged farm. He received his educational training in the public schools, continuing his studies until he had attained the age of sixteen, after which he assisted in the work of the parental farmstead until he was twenty-one years of age, when he set forth to seek his fortune in the west. In 1886 Mr. Fey came to Montana, locating at Dearborn, and was employed on various ranches for six years. In 1892 Mr. Fey came to the Sweet Grass hills, and in this favored section of the state took up a squatter's claim and, associated with a brother, he has since purchased adjoining tracts until their estate now has an aggregate area of 1,200 acres, located in the Gold Butte district, not far away from the village of Gold Butte, which is his postoffice address. Mr. Fey has been engaged principally in the growing of sheep, having an average of 6,000 head, but he also raises cattle upon a modest scale, usually having about forty head of excellent stock. The ranch affords a free range and the owners have made excellent improvements, including a good dwelling and necessary barns and other outbuildings.
In his political allegiance Mr. Fey is identified with the Republican party, while fraternally he is a member of Dearborn Lodge No. 21, I. O. O. F., at Augusta.
He is one of the energetic and progressive young men of Choteau county, and is held in high esteem.
