Mabel Ruth Bandy Anheuser

An article in The Southeast Missourian - Apr 5, 1926, indicated that Fred S. [Straub] Anheuser, a University of Missouri senior, introduced his "valentine," Mabel Ruth Bandy, to his friends, as the wife he married on Valentine's Day.  She was an instructor in the French Department at the university.  His father was a vice-president of Anheuser-Busch, Inc.  Both Fred and Mabel were 23 years old.


Mabel's parents were John Rufus and Arminna (Boyer) Bandy.  Her grandparents were John Kennedy and Martha Ann (Cusick) Bandy.

The Anheuser estate is now a museum.

The ancestral home of Fred and Mabel Ruth Anheuser, affectionately known to many as Fredmar Farms, is located in Kimmswick, Missouri just 25 miles south of downtown St. Louis.
