William Kriegbaum/Pickard was my grandfather. Mary Ellen Hennesey married William Kriegbaum sometime between 1920 and 1920. They had 2 children, Alois (my grandfather) and Albert. In 1916, William Kriegbaum left the family. I have no other information and can't find his whereabouts in 1920. Mary Ellen then married William Pickard (that's where the Pickard name comes in) and they legally adopted my grandfather Alois, and he was always known as William A. Pickard. My grandfather died March of last year. His last residency was in Wheatfield New York. I am VERY interested in this line and have been trying to find William Kriegbaum after he left the family in Buffalo. It was something my grandfather was always curious about but I found no additional information. If you have any PLEASE email me! firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!!
