Ludwig Huber, son of Florian & Anna Margaretha Huber, was baptized 6 June 1714 in Feudenheim. He married in Feudenheim on 31 May 1746 to Anna Catharina Neuenhölzer, daughter of Johann Georg Neuenhölzer.

The baptism of one child to Ludwig Huber & Anna Catharina Neuenhölzer is recorded in the parish register of Feudenheim: Martin, baptized 11 November 1752.

Ludwig Huber, a farmer, his wife Katharina, and children (Elisabeth, age 14; Martin, age 12; Christian, age 3) immigrated to Denmark (Schleswig-Holstein) arriving in Flensburg on 4 June 1762. They were dismissed from the Danish colonies on 24 April 1765 and joined the migration to Russia.

Ludwig Huber and his family settled in the Volga German colony of Balzer on 28 March 1766.

Ludwig Huber, a farmer, his wife Anna Katharina, and sons (Martin, age 17; Christian, age 7) are recorded there on the 1767 census of Balzer in Household No. 23.

The 1767 census records that Ludwig Huber came from the German region of Kurpfalz. The Eichhorns record that Ludwig Huber came from "Käferthal, Oberamt Mannheim, Kurpfalz."
