Henry Huber (deceased) was born in 1819 in the Grand Duchy of Baden, and was the son of Andrew and Frances (Fulmer) Huber, natives of Germany, who left their native country and came to the United States in 1843, settling in Perry County, Mo., one and one-half miles northeast of Perryville. There Andrew Huber died in June, 1864, and his wife in 1857. They were the parents of three children, viz.: Henry, Andrew and Ellen (wife of Anton Hunt).
Henry came to America with his parents, and grew to manhood on their farm.
In 1844, he married Ellen Sutterer, a native of Germany, who bore him four children: Anton, Henry, Barney and Louis.
Mr. Huberís first wife departed this life on April 10, 1855, after which Mr. Huber married Barbara Sutterer, nee Huber, a daughter of Ignatius Huber. She was born in the Grand Duchy of Baden in 1833 and came to the United States with her parents in 1844. To this union were born five children: Andrew, William, Charles, Frank, and Ellen Barbara. Mrs. Huber has one child by her first marriage, Frank Sutterer.
Henry Huber resided in different parts of Perry County until 1873, when he purchased 850 acres two miles northeast of Perryville, on which he located and passed the remainder of his life, dying on May 19, 1880. He was a good farmer, and stood high in the estimation of his neighbors and all who knew him.
In 1876 he erected a large brick residence, in which his family still reside. Mrs. Huber manages the farm with the assistance of her sons, Charles and Frank.
Mr. Huber was a consistent member of the Catholic Church as is also his wife and children.
The Goodspeed Publishing Company compiled a series of histories of various counties in the U.S. in the late 19th century. The information in the History of Southeast Missouri, published in 1888, was provided by the contemporary residents of Perry County and her neighboring counties. The biographies are a valuable source of genealogical information, despite a few minor inaccuracies. We are glad to present the transcribed biographies here for anyone researching Perry County's history.
