Willie Ann Burgess Krickbaum

Above is Willie Ann Burgess (1866-1932), a daughter of Egbert Ransom Burgess (1830-1984) and Martha Ann Jones (1835-1933). She was born in Albemarle County, VA and lived all her life there.

She married Baltimore native John George Krickbaum (1866-1948) in 1890. John’s parents were John C. Krickbaum (1843-1911) and Lena Elizabeth Lewis (1845-1930), both of whom were born in Germany.

Willie’s family were mill workers and lived in the section of Charlottesville, VA known as Woolen Mills. John followed this family tradition and was a mill worker into his 70s.

Willie and John had three children. Ena Maude Krickbaum (1894-1981) married a baker named James Richard Holloway (1891-1969) and they lived in Richmond, VA. Frederick Lewis Krickbaum (1896-1950), also a baker in Richmond before moving to Baltimore, married Nora Belle Hoover (1899-1988). Lula Mae Krickbaum (1898-1935) married a truck driver named Charles Edward Chisholm (1906-1962) and they resided in Charlottesville.

I was disappointed to be unable to discover how Willie from Charlottesville and John from Baltimore got together or to accurately date the photograph. Could it be a wedding photograph taken in 1890?

    The dress is elaborate, but somehow I don’t think it is a wedding photograph, not from 1880. It would have been more obvious that’s what it was.
