      H. S. Huber, Reeve 1857 and 1859 to 1864.

      Mr. Henry S. Huber was the son of a pioneer from Pennsylvania, and born in Lancaster, Bridgeport County, Penn., he became the leading Berlin merchant of his day. He was enter-prising and esteemed for his good qualities. It is said of him that he was always ready to encourage industry and new business in the village of Berlin. That he was a man of parts is evidenced by his having been elected reeve of Berlin in 1857 and again in 1859, holding office continuously until 1865. In the securing of the county seat, and a railway for Berlin, he was particularly active. His tenure of office was marked by progressiveness.2a
