In 1855, she came to America and settled in St. Louis, Missouri where she was united in marriage with Joseph HUBER ( b.1826 Canton, Switzerland - d. 1886 Brighton, IL). To this union three children were born, one son and two daughters.
From St. Louis they moved to Godfrey where they resided for three years. In 1862, they purchased the farm south-west of Brighton and made it their permanent home. In 1886 her husband died and this sorrow so affected the mind of the Widow that it was necessary to move her to a state institution in Jacksonville for 28 years. But finally her health was restored and she returned to her home in June of 1914. The family all came home and a family reunion was held in her honor.
In January of 1916 at 10: P.M. she died at her home, her age was 86 yrs 10 months and 28 days. Left to mourn her death is her one son Henry HUBER (Henry Franz  Jr. Yost  b.

Irene YOST wrote, "Great Grandfather and Great Grandmother HUBER are buried in the Cemetery across from the Bott's School on the road going into Brighton. This school is where the YOST children went. It has been converted into a house now and the road along side of it is where Mary and Henry GILES had a country Cabin home just about 1/2 mile from the hard road."

Rebecca Moore, "The Huber/Yost farm is still in operation, the house still stands and is occupied by relatives Pat and Leon Schetter.  (It's 3 miles south of Brighton - back off the road after the new subdivision.  I believe at one time the Huber farm backed up to the cemetery.  I know they lived next door to Martin Bott)."
