Hi Robert, sorry so long to get back with you about Henry Farber.I started to look into it for you and got sidetracked.
I found tonight that Henry and Anna Catherine Kolb had one son George Farber.
Ann and Henry must have split because in the 1880 census she is living with her brother and mother as Catherine Kolb, she claimed to be widowed and her son George Farber age 7 was living with them.
in 1900 Ann K. Farber was still living with her brother.she still claims to be widowed and says she had 1 child and 1 child still living.
I haven't been able to pinpoint Henry. I have found a couple of William H. Farber's and a couple of Henry Farber's all around the same time period, but since I never knew he had another wife, I am not sure which one is him.
According to a family member Henry died in 1929 but no place was listed.
I find a William H. Farber with a wf Matilda in the 1910 and 1920 census. living in Colorado and Nebraska.No children are with them in either census.They claimed to be married for only 24 years in 1910 and she claimed to have 8 children 6 living, whether they were all by William, I cannot say, but probably.
I found a Henry Farber with a wife Martha living in Iowa in 1900 with 6 children.Martha claimed to have 9 children, 8 living and she and Henry were married for 30 years.
Both of the above men have the same birth configurations.Both claimed that their father was born in pennsylvania and their mother in Ohio.Which so far from my research is true.Henry claims to be born in Illinois and William H. claims to be born in Iowa.Henry's early census with his mother lists both places, so I am not sure where he was actually born.
