Obituary: Edwardsville Intelligencer, Edwardsville, IL, 12 February 1931:


Fred A. Fiegenbaum, Aged Resident of City, Was Nearly 80 Years Old.

Fred A. Fiegenbaum, former Edwardsville alderman for several years and member of an old and widely-known family, died at 11:15 o'clock this morning at his home 817 Kingshighway. Complications incident to old age, with which he had been ailing a year or more, caused death. A week ago he was forced to go to bed.

He was born in Watertown, Wis., August 15, 1851, and he had attained the age of 79 years, 5 months and 27 days. His parents were Rev. and Mrs. William A. Fiegenbaum, who lived in Edwardsville for many years.

Mr. Fiegenbaum was a young man when his father was assigned to Immanuel M.E. Church and the family moved to Edwardsville while the father filled the pulpit. This city afterwards became the home of the family but three of the children located elsewhere.

As a young man he learned the carpenter's trade and followed it for a number of years. He was also engaged in farming in Pin Oak Township for a number of years but after a fire destroyed the residence, the family moved to Edwardsville. While residing in Pin Oak township he served as tax collector.

Mr. Fiegenbaum was the father of eight children, his first wife and three of the children preceding him in death. His first wife was Miss Amelia Kriege who died in 1895. His second wife, Mrs. Fredericka Fiegenbaum and five children survive. The surviving children are: Mrs. Theo. C. Prott, Otto A. Fiegenbaum, Mrs. Bertha Sooy, Assistant Supervisor Charles H. Fiegenbaum, Miss Carrie Fiegenbaum.

The desceased children were Geo. E. Fiegenbaum, former city treasurer, William P. and Julius Fiegenbaum.

A brother and two sisters survive. They are Dr. J. H. Fiegenbaum, Alton; Mrs. Lydia Jacoby, Los Angeles, Calif., and Mrs. C. F. Blume, St. Paul, Minn. A brother, Dr. E. W. Fiegenbaum and sister, Mrs. C. H. Lynch, died here within the last few years.

Eleven grandchildren and two great grandchildren also survive.

No plans had been made today for the funeral services.
