HUBERT, M. A. (Baden Germany, Nov. 9, 1822-- ). Hubert learned the business of furrier in Germany and then emigrated to America in 1848. He came to Galena and lived there five years. He lived one year in St. Louis and then came to Dubuque in February, 1854.

He opened his business of hats, caps and fancy goods, and, soon after, added a fur department. In 1880 he is the oldest dealer in furs in the city of Dubuque and had built up a large trade, both wholesale and retail.
