Fee Brothers

Fee Brothers

The year was 1835. It was a cold March day when 31 year old Owen Fee first set eyes on America. He had been born in Ireland's County Monaghan. By 1847 Owen had opened a butcher shop and was living in the Northeast area of Rochester, New York with his wife, Margaret McMahon, and their three children, James, Mary Jane, and Owen Jr. Within the next three years two younger brothers were added to the family. John Fee was born in 1848. (This was also the year that Owen Sr. became a US citizen.) Joseph arrived in 1850. Later, the records of St. Bridget's Church indicate that six-year-old John and his 15 year-old brother, James were the first altar boys there when it formed in 1854.
