|Joseph Huber & Emma Rothmeyer|
Joseph and Emma (Rothmeyer) Huber are my 2nd great grandparents. The couple were married on 9 Oct 1892, but I am unsure if they married in Iowa or South Dakota.
Joseph Huber was born in 1866 or 1867 in McGregor, Iowa, the fourth child (of 15) of Peter S. and Theresa (Reisinger) Huber. Peter and his family moved to South Dakota to stake their claim on some land, and Joseph remained in Yankton County (likely Utica) until 1930.
Emma Rothmeyer was born 20 Jun 1870 in Elkader, Iowa, the third child (of 6) of Joseph and Christina (Wagner) Rothmeyer.
The couple had a total of 8 children: Clara, Anna (my great grandmother), Ellanora, Martha, Joseph, Mildred, Alice, and Paul. Joseph died, after an 8-month battle against prostate cancer that spread to his intestines, on 19 Oct 1930 around age 63 in Los Angeles, California, where they lived for 2 months. He is buried at Sigel Cemetery in Yankton. Emma moved back to South Dakota, and died on 1 May 1947 at the age of 76 in Yankton, and is also buried at Sigel Cemetery.
This photo really grabbed me when I saw it … maybe it was the fact that her dress wasn’t white, maybe it was that she looked like a deer in headlights … no idea. In any case, I think it’s a pretty cool wedding photo.
