Anna Lillian Lindauer (1872-1956) Lowe (b. October 20, 1872; Manhattan, New York County, New York, USA - d. before June 19, 1956; United Hospital, Rye, Westchester County, New York, USA)
Anna Lillian Lindauer, Annie Lindauer.
Anna was the daughter of Charles Frederick Lindauer (1836-1921) and Anna Augusta Kershaw (1841-1931) aka Anna Kershow.
She was born on "October 20, 1881" according to her obituary. However there is an "Anna Lillian Lindauer" born on "October 20, 1872" in Manhattan to Charles and Anna. The nine year difference is difficult to reconcile, but obituaries have been known to be incorrect. The month and day of birth match what is in her obituary.
Her siblings include: Eloise Lindauer (1861-1935) aka Ellie Lindauer, who married Maximillian S. Freudenberg I (1858-1921) aka Max Freudenberg; William Lindauer (1866-c1870); Adeline Lindauer I (1862-before1921) aka Ada Lindauer, who married Charles L. Schoenfeld; Arthur Oscar Lindauer (1867-1944) who was a trapeze performer that never married; Harry Chauncey Lindauer I (1877-1923) who married Hannah Shea (1884-?) and later died of syphilis; and LeBaron Hart Lindauer (1879-1945) who married Catherine Harney (1878-1966).
Around 1897 Anna married Ira Lowe (1870-c1906).
Together they had two children: Joseph Lowe (1903-1979) aka Joe Lowe, who married Mary Buchman (1903-1972) and had no children; and Blanche Lowe (1898-1998) who married John Wahl II (1895-1942) a tree surgeon, and after his death she married Ira Edgar Testerman (1899-1970) and moved to San Diego, where she died.
Cortland, New York:
She was living in Cortland, Cortland County, New York, United States in the 1900 US census and the 1905 New York state census.
Her husband died between 1905 and 1910.
Anna died in 1956 in Rye, Westchester, New York.
She was buried in Greenwood Union Cemetery in Rye, Westchester, New York on June 19, 1956.
Anna's obituary appeared in the Rye Chronicle and reads as follows: "Anna Lowe, a Rye resident for over 60 years, died on Saturday at the United Hospital. She was seventy five years old and resided at 21 Oakwood Avenue. The widow of Ira Lowe, she was born in New York City on October 20, 1881 [sic], daughter of the late Charles and Anna Augusta Kershaw Lindauer. She was a member of the Rye Methodist Church. Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. Blanche Testerman of the home address; a son, Joseph Lowe of Rye; three grandchildren, U.S. Army Captain John Wahl of Fort Benning, Georgia, Mrs. W.F. Spaulding of San Antonio, Texas, and William Joseph Wahl of Rye, and seven great-grandchildren. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the William H. Graham Funeral Home with the Reverend Paul Abel, pastor of Rye Methodist Church, officiating. Interment was in Greenwood Union Cemetery."
There are two birth dates for an Anna Lindauer: October 20, 1881 from her obituary and October 20, 1872 from a birth certificate in Manhattan. It is possible, but unlikely, that there are two Annas, and the earlier Anna died at birth, but having the exact day and month of birth would be too coincidental. The earlier date is the one that is accepted as correct.
Anna Lillian Lindauer (1872-1956) was the great-grandaunt of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).
