Huner or Homer: Margaret from Hesse-Kesel, Germany

The biographical entry in The History of Colorado lists her name as Huner, others suggest Homer, and given the fact she came from Germany Huner is likely the better name since that was given by her son Frederick NINER to his family.
She married Henry Niner (Neiner, Nyner on various census records) after both crossed to America ca. 1840.

One daughter Margaret married in Cooperstown a Wm S. Boyd and moved to Missouri.

The 1850 Franklin, Allegheny Co., PA Census lists Henry b. 1815 Germany; Margaret as b 1816 Ger ;with children George 7 b. MD and Geo 6, b. PA (two boys both named George and went by their middle names).
