FELLER, Henrietta, missionary, born in Lausanne, Switzerland, about, 1788; died in Grand Ligne, Canada, 27 March 1868. She married M. Feller, a magistrate in Lausanne, and soon after his death, and the death of their only child, she came in 1835 to Montreal, and, joining two of her friends, M. and Madame Olivier, began her labors as a teacher and missionary. On account of delicate health, M. and Madame Olivier were compelled to leave Montreal in a short time. Madame Feller determined to continue the school, but did not succeed, and went to St. John's. Financial aid reached her from Switzerland, and, several of the Baptist ministry becoming interested in her welfare, she was enabled to maintain her school until the first rebellion in Lower Canada, when she came to the United States. Late in 1836 she removed to Grand Ligne, again opening a school; and, after various visits to the Atlantic cities for aid, she was successful in raising funds for the erection of a mission house, of which she became director.
