  • Notes 
    • Frederick David Huether, born at Albany, N.Y., November 19th, 1853, came here with his father, Ludwig, in 1856. He learned the Blacksmithing trade with his father and apart from a few years spent working for Jacob Beck at Baden and over at Doon, his entire lifetime was spent working at the Lower Mill. He died April 18th, 1928. He was a good citizen in every way and a fine Gentleman; He took an active interest in the Fire Brigade for many, many years and in the year 1887 was a member of the Municipal Council. Like some of the rest of us, he was interested in various sports; Base-ball, I should say, above the others and as to his skill, let me tell you this; One day I happened to be in the Lower Mill talking to Mr. Lester E. Weaver, when a fellow came along with the broken part of some machine and asked what was to be done. Lester did not hesitate a second; He just said "Take it to Fred. He will look after it." What finer compliment I ask, coming from a man like Lester Weaver, could be paid to anyone? Fred could fix anything that it was possible to fix.
