About Elisa Eberhard Busch (Anheuser)

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.
