JOSEPH HUBER
     whose valuable farm of 158 acres lies in Dinsmore township, adjoining the corporate limits of Botkins, on the north, is a representative citizen of this section and is something of a leader in democratic politics although never a seeker for political prominence. He was born in Auglaize county; O., in 1855, and is a son of Clement and Rosa (Weaver) Huber.
     The parents of Mr. Huber were natives of Germany and they came to America in 1840, and lived for a time in Auglaize county, O., and afterward in Shelby county. There were eight children an the family, of whom Mary, Rosa and Matilda are deceased. Of the survivors: Catherine married Frederick Bauer and they live at Botkins. Theresa married Joseph Koenig and they live in Auglaize county. Elizabeth is a sister in a convent at St. Joseph, Missouri. Philomena also chose a religious life and is a sister in a convent at Phoenix, Arizona.
     Joseph Huber was educated in the public and parochial schools and his occupation has always been fanning. He received his property from his father's estate, which he has improved until it is one of the finest farms in this part of the county. Mr. Huber is a member of the Catholic church and for fourteen years has been treasurer of the same at Botkins. He is unmarried.
