Antonia Krumsick Busch was born in Germany and as a child emigrated with her parents. They settled in Washington, MO where she married John B Busch and had nine children, seven of whom lived to adulthood. John B Busch (Sr), his brother Henry, and another partner established the "Washington Brewery" in 1854, which later became the "John B Busch Brewing Company."
During the Civil War the brewery was raided by Confederate troops, and Antonia showed kindness to the soldiers. When a bag of looted jewelry was dumped on her dining room table a ring fell to the floor. Mrs. Busch handed the ring to Gen. John Sappington Marmaduke, who then allowed her to keep the ring in exchange for her kindness.
Mrs. Busch died in California and her body was to be sent back to Washington, MO. Unfortunately it was sent to Washington State by mistake and arrived in Missouri a week later. She had not been embalmed.
