With the banking interests of St. Louis Frank W. Feuerbacher has long been identified and he still remains an active factor in financial circles, although he has passed the Psalmist’s allotted span of threescore years and ten, for his birth occurred on the 30th of July, 1850, in St. Louis where his entire life has been passed.
