Johann Huebner

Johann (John) Huebner
birth: 15 Oct 1794, Gesees, Bavaria to Johann Huebner and Margaretha Bohner
burial: St. Pau’s Cemetery, Haysville, Dubois County, Indiana

marriage: 2 Feb. 1827, St. Jacobus, Creusen, Bavaria
Kunigunda Lehren
birth: 10 Sep 1802, Wasserkraut, Bavaria to Johann Geor Lohr and Margaretha Brindel
death: 29 April 1871, Haysville, Dubois County, Indiana
burial: St. Paul’s Cemetery, Haysville, Dubois County, Indiana

Children of Johann Huebner and Kunigunda Lehren:

  • John Henry, 1824-1886, m. Barbara Steger
  • Elizabeth, 1829-1868, m. John Mehne
  • John Jr. 1832-1917, m. Margaretha Neukam
  • John S. 1835-1892, m. Barbara Lein
  • Barbara, 1839-1906, m. John L. Hoffman
  • Magdelena, 1844-1863, n.m.

Johann lived near Haysville, Dubois County and Loogootee, Martin County, Indiana.

The Huebners were in Gesees, Oberfranken, Bavaria for at least six generations. Their spouses came from surrounding area. They moved to Wasserkraut (just outside of Pegnitz) circa 1831 and to Haysville, Indiana in 1845.

Johann was a farmer and was a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. The family apparently immigrated as part of a religious movement (Bavaria was to be Catholic at that time).  Additional reasons:  2) Military conscription: John Henry was already in the Army when they came (he came later), and with two more sons it was reasonable.  3) Weather had been very bad for several years – there was a serious draught condition for five years before they migrated.
