I would also like a copy of this article if possible. I think it is a very good chance that my familys original name was Feit. They were from Germany, and lived in Philadelphia, beginning in the 1750's with Joh (how it is listed on the passenger list)Feit. If I am on the right track, the later Feit children were baptised at the old St. Joseph Catholic Church in Philly, still in existance. Changes started on the spelling around 1786. There were also a Maria and Paulus Feidt in Germany before the family in Philadelphia. If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me.
