I am researching the Feroben name in Louisiana, Mississippi, France, and Germany. My father's name was James Carrol Feroben. He was born in Waverly, Louisiana February 1, 1940 and died October 30, 1996 in Delhi, Louisiana. He is the son of Charlie Thomas Feroben and Goldie Alameda Dean. Charlie Thomas Feroben is the son of Henry James Feroben and Molly Elizabeth Brewer. Henry is the son of Joseph Feroben and we are assuming Sarah Kaiser. Joseph immigrated to the United States sometime before 1850 but he is listed in the 1850 census for Vicksburg, Mississippi. I found a marriage record for Joseph in 1859 when he married Sarah. Henry was born in Mississippi in 1858. This is all I know about Joseph.
