HUVER

Do not copy to put on another web site.  

We have information in our cemeteries that is from researching, not just from walking the cemetery, and there may not be a stone so it will be easy to prove they were copied.  The cemeteries are here for researching and personal use only not for submitting to other web pages.  This is hard work of volunteers.  We have the locations of the cemeteries if you would like to walk it and get your own listing.

     MAX HUVER             DIED            NOV. 20, 1904    

 
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.
