Alice (Crosby) Fehr

Alice (Crosby) Fehr was born in January 1900 near Mt. Pleasant, Westmoreland County, PA, the daughter of Lewis and Marietta (Minerd) Crosby.

Alice married Gordon F. Fehr ( ? - ? ).

They had three children -- Dorothy Fehr, Sarah Fehr and Charles "Bucky" Fehr.

They resided in Reading, Berks County, PA. Then, in about 1929, they moved to Detroit, and resided at 708 Milwaukee Avenue. Gordon worked as a policeman.

The city of Detroit is seen here, in a photograph taken during that era.

In April 1930, Alice became ill, and was admitted to the Women's Hospital in Detroit. Her sister Mattie Bowman traveled from Connellsville, Fayette County, PA to visit. Staying as long as she could, Mattie left when her sister's condition was "slightly improved," reported the Courier. Unfortunately, Alice did not recover, and died on April 24, 1930. The funeral was held in the Fehr home, and Alice was buried in a Detroit cemetery.

Gordon's fate is unknown.
