Frank Huber

      Huber, Frank, was born in Baden, Germany, March 26, 1833, and came to Parma in 1860. By trade he was a mason and farmer, and worked at both previous to his enlistment, August 12, 1862, when he went out with Co. B, 8th N. Y. Mounted Vols., from which time till the final muster-out, June 7, 1865, Comrade Huber was in sixty- two engagements, and was twice wounded. At Yellow Tavern, Va., March 11, 1864, he was struck in the side with a fragment of shell, and although painfully wounded, he remained on duty, and at Malvern Hill a bullet struck the same place as had the shell, and he was kept in hospital six weeks. He however ran away from the sick tent and rejoined his command long before his wound was healed, and his comrades say that Corporal Huber was as willing a fighter as ever handled a gun or sword. Returning to Parma he resumed his trade and former work, and later spent three years in Pennsylvania in the lumber business. Returning to Parma he bought a farm and settled. He is a G. A. R. man and an Odd Fellow, having passed every chair in the latter society. He is also a member of the Veteran Company of Parma. December 26, 1866; Frank Huber married Samantha Seeley. They have no children living.
