The Descendants of August & Katharina Feuerbacher

Welcome Feuerbachers!

Our ancestors, August and Katharina Feuerbacher, landed in the United States on June 22, 1852 arriving from Germany. Settling in Brooklyn and raising four children, they began a family here in the United States that today has over 400 members .

August & Katharina's story, and that of their family, is as American as Apple Pie. From Civil War Stories to little anecdotes, we hope to archive and preserve their legacy here at for all of our family to enjoy.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our website. Stop By Again Soon, We are always adding new things!
