Emily I. Felten Lodes and my grandmother (Clara Felten Cragan) were sisters. Their father was John V. Felten (originally Vonfelten) and their mother was Sophie M. (Wiedemann) Felten. John and Sophie married in 1880 at St. Joseph's Church in St. Louis Mo. John died in 1924 in St. Louis and is buried at Calvary Cemetary, in fact, in the same plot as Emily. Sophie died in 1902 and is also buried there. Now I do not recognize your reference to an Irene Felten or Vonfelten. Emily's middle initial was "I." so perhaps that stood for Irene.
