Feist family text was compiled by Chanan Feist. He died at the age of 90 in recent years.
"Franziska was born at 1. June 1869. She was raised in the house of her ant, the sister of Johanna, and her uncle Oppenheimer in Heiligenstadt. The family Oppenheimer was quite wealthy. They owned a big department store, which was in the hands of the family for over 100 years. At the age of 19 Franziska moved, by the advice of her parents, to Braunschweig to get a better education. In 1899 she married Cantor Julius Hesselson. After a year and a half their son Rudi was born. A few months after the birth of Rudi their happiness was shattered. Julius who was born in Russia and being a Jew, could never been naturalized and become a German citizen. He lived in Germany already for years, studied at the University in Marburg, but he always needed a permit, which was valid for one year only. This time, as he asked to renew his permit, he got a negative answer and was ordered to leave Germany in 24 hours. He succeeded to emigrate to the U.S.A., and after he got settled there Franziska joined him. They settled in St. Charles. After Rudi (we don't have any information about him) eight children were born: Gretchen, Fluffy, Goodey, Abe, Helen, Henri, Ruth, Mel." END
