Bertha Adam Froebel is the fifth child of Conrad and Adalbetha Adam. Her husband, Hilmar Gunther Froebel, died in 1905. Two years later, on 3 April 1907, Bertha married Charles J. Haby in San Antonio. Witnesses for the marriage are Anton Adam (not related, as far as I know) and Guenther Froebel.
Charles J. Haby was born on 10 February 1864 to Joseph and Magdalena Haby. Charles worked at the Office Bar on 215 Water Street in San Antonio as a bartender. He may have owned the business. During the 1905 fair held in San Antonio, Charles operated a bar for the fair visitors. The San Antonio Light reported, “The Buffet bar at the fair grounds has been one of the best patronized bars at the fair ground. It was in charge of [sic] Charles Haby and was noted for polite attention and efficient service. Mr. Haby too is noted for his courtesy…” He died on 21 November 1909 at their home on 126 Kansas Street. He was 45 years old and is buried in City Cemetery #6.
Witnesses: Anton Adam worked in the Bexar County Courthouse as a Clerk for Justice of the Peace Ben S. Fisk. He was born in 1874. His father, Anton Adam, served as a Bexar County Clerk for a several years.
Guenther Froebel was Bertha’s oldest son. He was born in 1889 in Boerne.
