Note: Edward Lee Feyler’s obituary appeared in the Portsmouth Correspondent, the German newspaper for the area stating that he had suffered since January from stomach cancer and that he was from Germany and Hungary with his fatherland “Buda Pest” The article states that he emigrated and got a position in Indianapolis and “came to Portsmouth as a helper for Mr. C. Cohen...2 brothers of the deceased serve in the Austrian Hungarian Army, which one is a Capt, who other as Veternarian...They are in the Comitatstadt Temesvar in garrison, where also the father of the deceased, a pensioner of state officials and 5 sisters live...". Betty Feyler Cavanagh tells of a report she had to do in school... teacher stressed to be a true story...utilized a story told her, by her father, concerning her grandfather Edward Lee Feyler. She wrote that as a young man he left Hungary and went to Egypt to study the jewelry trade. He returned to Hungary but family did not approve of his profession influencing his decision to leave for America. The teacher was not impressed and gave Betty a rather low grade, feeling that it was too far fetched to be a true story
Note: Howard attended Vanderbilt University, Tennessee, USA graduating in 1916 as a dental surgeon. In May 1917 he became an Officer in the newly formed US Army Dental Corp. By 1919 he was stationed at Schofield Barracks in Honolulul, Hawaii where their 1st child was born. The family returned to the USA in time for the birth of their 2nd daughter. When settled his dental practice was established in a frame structure addition to his home on Gay Street in Portsmouth, Scioto County, Ohio USA. Besides his dental practice by 1933 he took an active role with the Portsmouth Police Department specializing as their Ham radio units. By 1940 he was serving as an active member for the city Board of Health
Note: An article dated 1910 states he became a Veterinarian in Bratslva having changed his name from Feiler to Faltenyi "source Statny Oblastny archiv in Nitra". In 1910 Alfred wrote his sister in law in America that they were pleased with their new home in Bratislava (Pozsony), Slovakia. In 1913 he talks of often going to the theater and concerts and that they very much like to dance. He is last known to be on the death list at Komorom with the name spelled Faltenyi. The certificate states simply that he “drowned”, althogh he committed suicide after WWI because he got so depressed that Hungary lost the war and two thirds of the country´s territory was attached to successor states of the Austrian- Hungarian Monarchy. Allegedly he jumped from the bridge in Komarom into the Danube river
