Most of information below is from Mrs. Fiegenbaum's obituary, Edwardsville Intelligencer, Friday, September 9, 1904:

Sophia Gusewelle was born 02 Feb 1826 in Pollhagen, Germany. She sailed to America in 1856 [1846], landing in St. Louis on New Year's Day, 1847. She married Rev. William Fiegenbaum in St. Louis in 1849. Their union was blessed with eight children, two of whom died in infancy. The family came to Edwardsville in 1870 and stayed until 1875 and then lived at other places where Reverend Fiegenbaum served. She united with the church the year she came to St. Louis and was not only a helpmate to her husband in the home, but was a "frontier missionary" traveling with him through Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Iowa, in the sparsely settled districts and aiding at all times in the religious work. Hers was a character as strong as that of her rugged husband; and she was ever his aid and helper through their long marriage.
