In the census of 1728, a Jew named Feivel is registered along with two sons (apparently, he was a widower). He was under the protection of the local nobleman Ladislao Sztojka. He paid 50 Florin of leasing fees per year.

In 1735, a Jew named Moshe Salamon is registered. He had a wife, and was the father of two young children. He paid lease fees of 10 Florin. He was under the protection of the nobleman Gyura Jonás.

In the census of 1768, a Jew named Shimon Isakovitch is mentioned. He had a four person family. He worked in the liquor production, and paid 3 Florin as leasing fees.

We do not have additional information. At the end of April 1944, the Jews of Fereşti were transferred to the Berbeşti Ghetto, from where they were deported to Auschwitz.
