Abraham & Mary (Hammell) Linderman



This is all that's left of the Linderman family headstone with flower pot on it.


Harry, Mary, and Edward Linderman-Dubuque, Iowa


Mother Mary (Hammell) Linderman's headstone.



Woodlawn Cemetery, Winona, Minnesota where the Linderman family plot is located.

Abraham Linderman, was my 3rd. Great Grandfather, and he was born in 1810 in Montgomery, Orange County, New York, USA, and he died 2 Sept. 1893 in Winona, Minnesota, USA. He enlisted in Civil War as Sgt. for the Union. A Yankee soldier. He was born in New York. His ancestors settled in Germantown Twp., Pennsylvania in 1697. His ancestors helped found America. Our Linderman ancestors fought in the American Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, American Civil War. We are proud German decendants of the Linderman family.

Abraham Linderman married Maria "Mary" A. Hammell in 26 November 1835 in Newfield, Tompkins County, New York. 

They moved with Abraham's father, Ezekiel Linderman to Kane County, Illinois in 1840's.

They moved to Minnesota in 1856. Their homestead was at 231 E. Mark Street, Winona, Winona County, Minnesota.

He and Mary had one child Mary Linderman born in 1859 in Bemidji, Clearwater County, Minnesota.

Their daughter, Mary Linderman, born 1859, in Bemidji, Minnesota, she never married (it was a deep, dark secret until 1995).

She had one son, Edward Francis (E.F.) Linderman, of Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa. 

She resided with her son, "Edy" and her daughter-in-law, "Gud" Gudrun Ivarra (Lund) Linderman, at 705 W. Third Street, Dubuque, Iowa, until her death in 1924. 

Gudrun Lund emigrated from Norway in 1896. She also died after Gall bladder surgery, in a day when a blood clot went to her brain, in Dubuque, Iowa in 1924.

God bless my poor ancestors, they lost so much. 

Abraham survived the Civil War, and lived until 1884, with his beloved Mary, in the Linderman Home place at 231 E. Mark Street, Winona, Minnesota. His wife, Mary (Hammell) Linderman, preceded him in death, in 1884. 

Burial: Linderman family plot in Woodlawn Cemetery, Winona, Winona County, Minnesota, USA

FAMILY ROOTS RUN DEEP!

I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY GENEALOGY SINCE 1987, WHEN I TOOK TEXAS HISTORY AT THE SAN JACINTO JR. COLLEGE. I HAD TO WRITE A RESEARCH PAPER, AND I CHOSE TO WRITE IT ABOUT MY FAMILY.

1994 IS WHEN I REALLY STARTED WORKING DILIGENTLY ON MY GENEALOGY, BECAUSE THAT IS THE YEAR MY MOTHER, JEAN MARIE LINDERMAN MANCILL, AND MY STEP DAD, LOUIS CLIFFORD MANCILL, HELPED ME TO GET MY FIRST COMPUTER. NOW, I'M ADDICTED!!!

MY OLDEST BROTHER, JOSEPH LEE FREDERICK, REBUILT COMPUTERS AND SO HE PUT US ONE TOGETHER. MOTHER AND LOU EVEN HAD THEIR OWN COMPUTER.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT A 67 YEAR OLD WOMAN, AND A 70 YEAR OLD MAN USING A COMPUTER!!!
MY DREAM WAS ALWAYS TO BE AN AUTHOR, LIKE LOUISA MAE ALCOTT, AND I PLANNED TO WRITE A BOOK SOMEDAY. I HAVE WRITTEN SEVERAL POEMS AND STORIES. FOR A LONG TIME I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WANTED TO WRITE.

MY DAD, HAD ASKED ME, " WHY DO YOU DO ALL THIS WORK? NO ONE WILL EVER READ IT!" FOR AWHILE THAT KEPT ME FROM WRITING ANYMORE, BUT THEN I DECIDED THAT THERE HAD TO BE SOMEONE IN OUR FAMILY WHO WOULD ONE DAY BE INTERESTED TO KNOW OUR FAMILY HISTORY, AND EVEN IF NOT, THEN MAYBE SOMEONE YEARS FROM NOW WILL BE INTERESTED IN LEARNING HOW WE LIVED.

WHEN I FINISH THE FINAL DRAFT OF MY FAMILY STORY I PLAN TO DONATE A COPY OF IT TO THE GEORGE MEMORIAL LIBRARY, IN RICHMOND, TEXAS, AND ALSO, A COPY TO THE CLAYTON GENEALOGICAL LIBRARY, IN HOUSTON, TEXAS.

I THINK THAT I AM GOING TO WRITE FIRST ABOUT THE STRONG, DOMINANT WOMEN IN MY FAMILY, I HAVE WRITTEN SOME ABOUT THEM, BUT I PLAN TO WRITE MORE AS I GET THE TIME.

MY MOTHER, JEAN MARIE LINDERMAN FREDERICK MANCILL, WOULD BE THE FIRST ON MY LIST. MY GRANDMOTHERS, BESSIE MAZAC FREDERICK, OR PHYLIS PALEN LINDERMAN. OUR NEIGHBOR, DOROTHY JOHNSON, MY SPONSOR BIRDIE MAE NEFF, GLADYS LINDERMAN NELSON, AND YVONNE LINDERMAN BURGESS LEVESQUE.

------ROOTS-------
EACH OF US HAS ROOTS AND THE ABILITY TO TRACE THESE ROOTS, TO IDENTIFY OUR ANCESTORS.

THE HIGHEST AND MOST POWERFUL MOTIVATION IN DOING THAT IS NOT FOR OURSELVES ONLY, BUT FOR OUR POSTERITY, FOR THE POSTERITY OF ALL MANKIND. AS SOMEONE ONCE OBSERVED, "THERE ARE ONLY TWO LASTING BEQUESTS WE CAN GIVE OUR CHILDREN--ONE IS ROOTS, THE OTHER WINGS!!"

What I Like About Texas!

HAPPY 175th. BIRTHDAY, TEXAS!
