Herbert Faust is the only child of Alois Faust and Mary Lauer that I do not have much information for. That said, I do have lots of information, photos, and stories for his siblings, cousins, and his ancestors.
I did find his obituary in Eau Claire, that says he had a sign company in Milwaukee. I also heard that he may have done something with photography. I would very much like to learn more about him and his family.
His father, Alois Faust, was born in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin on the Faust homestead farm. He moved to Milwaukee around the turn of the century and married Mary Lauer. He worked at Porth Pie Company for many years. After his wife died he remarried Anna Hubacher, who I think was also a widow.
Alois' father (Herbert's grandfather), was Jacob Faust (1819 - 1877). He immigrated from Germany in 1854 and bought 80 acres of Land in Manitowoc County.
I look forward to talking with you through email so that I can send you photographs of family members and share more.
