I too have been tracing this branch of the Krichbaum's. I know that I am related through this branch but not sure which one. I know my ancestor left PA, and moved to Springfield, Ohio. From there they moved to Northern Indiana somewhere below southbend. I am in central Indiana. My great-grandfather was Lyman Jacob Krichbaum and his wife was Louisa Huffman. He had many brothers and sisters in northern indiana, and relatives left in Ohio. MY grandfather's name was John Marion Krichbaum and I know he was named after his ancestors.He was born in 1911(or close to there) and died in 1984.He has a sister that is still living, she is 98 years old and knew the history but won't talk about it.
