Age 26
A debate continues over the location of the creation of the Republican Party. Some sources claim the party was formed in Ripon, Wisconsin, on February 28, 1854. Others claim the first meeting of the Republican Party took place in Jackson, Michigan, on July 6, 1854, where the Republican Party was officially organized. Over 1,000 people were present and candidates were selected for the party, thus making it the first Republican convention.

Name Meaning

English: patronymic from Fellow, from Middle English felau(e) ‘partner, co-worker, companion’ (late Old English fēolaga, from Old Norse félagi, which is composed of ‘fee, money’ + legja ‘to lay, place, put’). In Middle English the term was used in the general sense of a companion or comrade, and the surname thus probably denoted a (fellow) member of a trade guild. Compare Fear 1.
