About Elisa Eberhard Busch

Called “der Lockenkopf” for her curly head of blonde hair, she was one of two Anheuser girls to marry a Busch groom on the double wedding March 7, 1861. Her sister, Anna, married Ulrich Busch while Lilly wed Adolphus — although the ceremony didn’t go entirely smoothly. According to a telling if apocryphal story, Adolphus was 20 minutes late to the church because he stopped on the way to close a business deal. -------------------- I found this info on Findagrave.com 9/3/2014 Colleen Nichols

Lilly was one of six children of Eberhard and Dorothea Anheuser. She and her family lived in Cincinnati, Ohio for a time before moving to St Louis, Missouri. Lilly, who was blonde and called "curly Head" was courted by and married to Adolphus Busch, who sold brewry supplies at the time, to her father at the E.Anheuser Brewing Company. She was married to Adolphus in a double wedding; her sister Anna married Ulrich Busch on March 11, 1861. Anna was dark and known for her sofistication. Lilly was the mother of thirteen children. Nine lived to adulthood. Along with her social life, Lilly cooked for her husband and to an extent remained a "house wife". With the sucess of the Brewery, She and her husband and children traveled extensivly. They owned Villas in Germany. Both were confiscated by Hitler. They traveled by private train car. A favorite group of homes for them was Ivy Wall, and The Blossoms, Busch Gardens in Pasadena,CA. They had an estate in Cooperstown, NY. and Germany. Upon reaching their fiftieth wedding anniversary, Lilly and Adolphus presented a home to each of their children. One was given a French chateau manner on a farm near St Louis once owned by General U.S. Grant. It is now known as Grant's Farm and is open to the public. Other Children were given homes in St Louis, New York, Berlin, Germany, Chicago,IL,and Stuttgartt, Germany. It was reported Lilly was given a gold Crown by her husband to commerate their golden Anniversary. Amidst the celebration was saddness because the health of her husband was failing. He passed away at Villa Lilly, in Germany with Lilly at his side.

Generations later I recall them as Aunt Lilly and Uncle Busch, because they were refered to in that way in the family. When Aunt Lilly traveled abroad she remembered my mother and my uncle, her niece and nephew, with fine toys.
