Felix Hepner, (probably) born on June 6, 1860 to Salomon Hepner and Henrietta Lachmann, was an estate owner in the town of Heidewilxen near Obernigk in Silesia (today Wilczyn near Oborniki Śląskie, Poland). One estate was in Wongrowitz/ Posen (today Wągrowiec, Poland) and another one was in nearby Otteraue, which had its own distillery (today Otorowo, Poland). Felix Hepner was a member of the Kreisbauernrat Trebnitz, the peasants' council in the district of Trzebnica in Poland founded in November 1918, and chairman of its Executive Committee.
