A portrait of Barbara (Kraus) Kirmse.
BARBARA KRAUS, daughter of Jobst Kraus and Anna Margaretha Göppner, was born on 07 May 1842 in Hutschdorf, Kulmbach, Bayern, Germany. She died on 20 Feb 1920 in Farrar, Perry, Missouri, USA. She married Julius Kirmse, son of Christoph Kirmse and Justine Kratsch, on 20 Nov 1866 in Perry County, Missouri, USA. He was born on 06 Feb 1835 in Fichtenhainichen, Altenburger Land, Thüringen, Germany. He died on 12 Dec 1915 in Farrar, Perry, Missouri, USA.
Circa 1890 – assuming that Barbara is about 50 years old.
St, Louis, Missouri – as per the photograph.
- Note that the photographer, Genelli (923 Olive Street, St. Louis, MO), is the same photographer who took the Schroeder family portraits. Possibly this photograph was taken when Barbara visited relatives in St. Louis, Missouri. The Schroeder family was related to the Kirmse family through the Peter Meier family which did not occur until after William Kirmse and Martha Cordes were married. Possibly there are other connections?
