VICTOR HUGO FELTY

VICOR HUGO FELTY, a successful young farmer of Buckingham township, Bucks county, son of William and Margaret FELTY, was born in Buckingham, January 5, 1881.   William FELTY, the father, was born in Buckingham in 1844, and died July, 1899.  He was a veteran of the civil war, serving in a New Jersey regiment during nearly the whole war.  After the war he entered the service of the Pennsylvania Railroad, and became one of their most trusted and efficient engineers, running their fast express on the Belvidere division for a number of years.  The strain and responsibility of his position preyed upon his health, and in 1877 he abandoned the railroad and purchased a small farm in Buckingham, at Beanís Corner, where he spent his remaining days, respected by all who knew him.  In politics he was a Republican.  His widow and two children survive him.  Ida, married Walter Willey, and lives on the homestead.

            Victor H. FELTY was reared on the farm, and received his education at the public schools.  On arriving at manhood he took charge of the farm on which he now lives, then recently purchased by his father, and has remained there ever since, his widowed mother residing with him.  He was married, July, 1900, to Mary Ann CARVER, an adopted daughter of S. Carey GARDON, of Solebury, and they are the parents of one child, Walter Leon.  In politics Mr. FELTY is a Republican.  He is a member of St. Tammany Castle, Knights of the Golden Eagle.
