About Chaim Eliezer Huberman
Chaim Eliezer Huberman
To the best of our knowledge, the Patriarch of the Huberman Family is Chaim Eliezer Huberman who lived in Koval, near Radom, Poland.
According to the late Henry Huberman of Miami Beach, Florida, his grandfather, Chaim, grew up in a family of farm labourers in approximately 1800. He reported that the largest farm in Koval, near Radom, Poland, was owned by a German Gentile named Huberman who made Chaim his general forman and bestowed his family name to Chaim and his family. This was not uncommon because Chaim's family lived on the Huberman farm and were indentified in the community as being "of the Hubermans".
Chaim Eliezer Huberman had four, possibly five, sons in the following order:
1. Motl (Mordechai, also known as Motl Melamed)--The Father of three sons: Nathan (Nusyn), Morris (Moishe) & Leon (Chaim Leibische) Huberman, and three daughters: Perel, Sarah, Miriam and Zelda
2. Avraham (Avrohom)--The Father of Henry Huberman.
3. Yaakov (Jakov, Yakob, Jacob)--The Father of Branislaw Huberman. For more information on the extraordinary life of Branislaw huberman, visit the website at www.huberman.info.
