Death: Jan. 24, 1949

Henry Rieber was the last survivor of Peter and Elizabeth's children. He married Alta Mary Miller March 16, 1880. He worked for U.S. Furniture Co., according to the 1922 Evansville City Directory. In 1998, Robert Walsh, Henry's grandson, remembered Henry as a quite skilled varnisher, who likely worked primarily on furniture. "He didn't have hardly any education at all,'' Bob Walsh said. "He learned through an apprenticeship."

Henry and Alta had six children: Lillian Mary (b. 1883), Ida Marie (b. Jan. 29, 1885), John Peter (b. Nov. 7, 1888), Sadie (b. 1892), Celia (b. 1894), Irene (b. Jan. 4, 1900. He died in Jan. 24, 1949 of cardio vascular disease arterio sclerosis and is buried at St. Joseph Cemetery. Alta, who died Sept. 7, 1940, also is at St. Joseph.
