Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 8, 1841
Racine County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Jul. 22, 1921
Racine County
Wisconsin, USA

Almira was born to James and Dolly (Quackenbush) Boss in Burlington, in 1842.

The name "Kray" appears on the gravestone because someone in her son Almir's family placed this stone, and they must of shortened their family name from "Krakofsky" to "Kray" sometime after 1935.

Almira married her sister's husband's brother, Charles A. Krakofsky on Feb. 23, 1861. Her sister was Louisa (Boss) Krakofsky.

Soon after their marriage, Charles enlisted in Company E, Wisconsin 9th Infantry Regiment on Sep. 7, 1861 to support the Union effort in the Civil War. He was promoted to Full Sergeant and served more that three years before mustering out on Dec. 3, 1864.

They later had a farm in Waterford, Wisconsin, where they raised three sons and a daughter. They include:

1) Charles R Krakofsky (1861-1905); m. Augusta F VanDorf.

2) Ida Krakofsky (1866-1898); m. Gustav Haas.

3) Ernest Krakofsky (1868 - 1941); m. Julia Heiligenthal.

4) Almir Boss Krakofsky (1882- 1951); m. Rose Foley.

Almira survived her husband by 16 years, dying in 1921.
