Frederika Tasche was born on December 6, 1850, in Schale Province, Westphalia, Germany. She was baptised and confirmed in the Reformed church of her native land. When a young lady she came to America with several friends and they settled at Eitzen Minnesota, where she was united in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mr. Barney Huehl on February 2, 1877.
Mrs. Huehl was a very Christian woman, she joined the Evangelical church after coming to this country and was a devout member up to the time of her death. She raised a large family according to her belief and the teaching of Christ was forever her watch-word.
In March 1883 the family emigrated to South Dakota and settled on a homestead west of Tulare. They enjoyed the hardships of pioneer life and developed the prairie claim into one of the finest farms in the community where they lived until 1905 when they retired and moved to Redfield.
Mr. and Mrs. Huehl were blessed with six children, Emma, Alvina, Lydia, Louise, Gustav and Clara. She was preceded in death by her husband, her daughter Alvina, who was Mrs. George Binger, Lydia, who was Mrs. Fred Beckman, and Gustav.
Mrs. Huehl had been ailing for some time due to advanced age and a complication of diseases and death was caused by hardening of the arteries. She peacefully passed away on Friday, September 19, 1930, at the age of 79 years, 9 months and 13 days
