John F. Faber, who is now residing at Hastings, has engaged in farming for many years and has gained a place
among the most efficient agriculturists of the county. He was born in New York, and is a son of Jacob Faber, a
native of Germany, who was married in 1866 to Johanna Faber, a cousin, and in 1867 emigrated with his wife to the
United States, settling in New York.
John F. Faber attended the district schools in his native state and also devoted much of his time during his boyhood
and youth to assisting his father with the farm work. On beginning his independent career he determined to follow
the occupation to which he had been reared and has never had occasion to regret his choice of a life work. He came
to Adams county and became the owner of a good farm on section 7, township 5, range 12. He at once turned his attention
to its development and operation and it is now one of the best improved places in its locality. He raises both
grain and stock and receives a good income from his land.
In 1896 Mr. Faber was married at Carlton, Nebraska, to Miss Anna M. Koinzan, a daughter of Frederick Koinzan, of
that place. Nine children, all of whom are at home, have been born to this union, namely: Emil, Adolph, Emma, Elsa,
Ella, John, Goldie, Victor and Rudolph.
Mr. Faber belongs to the Lutheran church and can be depended upon to further movements seeking the moral advancement
of his community. Since taking up his residence here he has gained many friends and his genuine worth is indicated
by the fact that those who have been most closely associated with him hold him in the highest esteem.
