I have information on an Andrew Huber including a transcribed will. My
information shows that he arrived in PA aboard the Ship Friendship, October
12, 1741 and took the Oath of Allegiance on that same day in the company of
Jurgen and Daniel Huber. At that time Andrew is listed as age 21, Jurgen 24
and Daniel 22. This Andrew married a Catherine but he died in 1784 in
Fayette County, PA somewhere between May 25, 1784 and July 24, 1784. This
Andrew was an early mermber of the Dunkard Community and definitely
emigrated from Switzerland. It is likely that he was a Mennonite at the time
of his immigration. I do not know if this is your Andrew Huber. This Andrew
used the name Hoover in his will. He apparently left York county for Fayette
County aqround 1785.
This Andrew names his sons as Henry, Jacob, John, Andrew and George Hoover.
It is believed that John was his oldest son. His daughters are Catherine
Herback, Anne Hoover and Elisabeth [Hunsaker] Hoontzacker.
