They immigrated from the port of Havre, France to NY (arrived on May 19, 1846) on the ship FRANCE.The family included:
Nicolas Felix(abt 1809 - bef 1880) Theresa Felix(abt 1809 - after 1880) Joseph Felix(abt 1832 - ?) Victor Felix(abt 1833 - ?) Louise Felix(abt 1835 - 5/1881 in Rochester, NY) Xavier Felix(abt 1837 - ?)(AKA: Francis) Albert Felix(abt 1840 - 1882 in Rochester, NY) August Felix(abt 1843 - ?)(AKA: Joseph)
Also on the ship (Im assuming they were relatives b/c they have the same "family group #): Catherine Felix (abt 1798 - ?) Madg. (Magdalena ?) abt 1776 - ?)
Once in Rochester, Nicolas John Felix worked as a cooper (as did his sons).Louise (aka: Louisa or Leonise) married John Christian Donner by 1850.By the 1880 census, only Theresa remained in the Felix family home with Albert & August/ Joseph.I have no idea who died or moved by that point.
As a descendant of Louise, I would love to find anyone who may link to her many brothers !
