Tresa Underwood supplied the following information. Thanks
to Anna Brett for finding the probate record for me.
Researching it is found that Max Huver was born
May, 1852 in Germany and immigrated to the United States in 1882 at
the age of 30. At the time of his death he did not have a wife
or child. He was farming about 40 acres. He had quite a
few fruit trees. about 7 1/2 dozen, 11 hogs, 5 bu. of sweet
potatoes, 100 bundles of fodder, 12 chickens, corn 90 bu. and 1 bale
of lint cotton, weight 503 pounds. Also, 1 horse, 1 heater
stove, 1500 feet of lumber and many misc. items such as furniture,
tools and household items.
While researching the name Max it was referred
to as Maxmillian , Max, and Moxey. Also on Huver the different
spellings noted were Hover, Huber, and Hoover. Name was also
seen as Moxey Millian Hover. The probate records show that a
Stone was purchased and an Iron Railing around grave for
Max's grave. Also Dr. Few
attended him and Frank Krobat worked in nursing him in his last
illness. L. Kubitza was the Temporary Adminstrator.
