I can tell you about your Krichbaum ancestors.

They orignally came from Laudenau, Bergstr., Starkenbg., Hesse [Germany] to Bethel Twp., Berks Co., Pa.

About 1795 Johannes Kriegbaum b. 01 Jan 1762, s/o of the immigrant Johann Wilhelm KRIEGBAUM & his wife Anna Barbara RETTIG, moved to Aaronsburg, Haines Twp, Centre Co., Pa. where nine of their children were baptized.

About 1814, Johannes KRIEGBAUM and his wife Maria Elizabeth EMMETT and their children and the brother of Johannes, Johann Wilhelm KRIEGBAUM & his wife Maria Catharina GERMAN, moved to Stark County, OHIO.

A genealogy report follows below on the parents of Lydia KRICHBAUM and her siblings many of whom moved to Washbash Co, IN.

Can you tell me more about Lydia KRICHBAUM her exact date of birth, date of death, date of marriage, names of children. Where was she born, OHIO or INDIANA?
Do you know when Lydia's parents moved to Washbash Co, INDIANA?

Elsie,

From what I can tell,
MOSES KRICHBAUM'S children were all born
between 1867 - 1884.

Moses KRICHBAUM m. 07 April 1865 -- RUTH ANN ELLIOT.

Ruth Ann ELLIOT died: 20 Dec 1884 three days after the birth of her last child GRACE ETHEL KRICHBAUM b. 17 Dec 1884.

From what I can tell Mary Alice AUGINBAUGH was the 2nd wife.

Does that explain things better?

I'm confused. Earlier you gave me a list of the children of Moses KRICHBAUM and Ruth ELLIOTT, including his daughter, DELLA. Do you mean that you don't have information about his children with Mary Alice AUGHINBAUGH, his first wife? All of this information has me a little bit overwhelmed. I have to take time to assimilate it. I need to get to a LDS library and look up some Wabash County census data.

I'm sure we are talking about the same LYDIA KRICHBAUM.
Her father was Johannes GEORGE KRIEGBAUM / KRICHBAUM b. in Aaronsburg, Haines Twp., Centre Co, PA.m. Elizabeth SONDERS.

Lydia's brother was MOSES KRICHBAUM b. 22 Jan 1839 in Washbash Co, IN. m. Mary Alice AUGHINBAUGH. I don't have the names of the children of Moses KRICHBAUM.

Here is the information I have from the Record of Death for Lydia Ann ( Liddie Ann) and from a card made at her death: she was born in Wabash County,IN on April 12, 1851 and died Aug. 13, 1920. She was married to Fred Martin. Her father's name was George, from PA. Her mother is listed as being born in Germany. One BIG discrepancy - this Death Record (which is copied from the original) lists her father as George Bickenbaugh. This HAS to be the result of being unable to correctly read the original document. This Lydia Ann was my grandmother and my mother always told us her mother's maiden name was Krichbaum. I have found, on the internet, a GEDCOM which traces the family to Hans Kriechbaum in 1565 and have contacted Michael Bowen, the originator. It has much the same data as you have but I need to tie in my Lydia Ann with your family. Here is a list of her children with Fred Martin.

George Martin
Marion Martin
Fred Martin
Alice Martin m. Forest Foster
Edith Martin M. Thomas Garner
Elizabeth Martin m. Unknown Egner
Mollie Martin m. George Freeman
May Martin b. 10-22-1887, m John Thomas Towns ( my parents)
Charles Martin m Etta Price (?)

Thank you very much for your response. If you are interested I can give you more information about Michael Bowen. Let me know if it looks like we are in the same family. The facts seem almost too much to be a coincidence. I have a photo of the "Martin girls" which mentions an Aunt Della and I see there is also a Della Krichbaum, daughter of Moses. I need to do some further research on my own to see if I can connect without a doubt.

Thanks again
