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.
