Grace Lindauer (1875-after1930) Massey (b. March 1875; Manhattan, New York County, New York City, New York, USA - d. after 1930; Manhattan, New York, USA)

Grace was the daughter of Louis Julius Lindauer (1842-1915) and Mary Sheehan (1846-1888).

March 1875 in Manhattan, New York City, New York.

She married Maximillian Massey (c1870-bef1920) after 1900.

Together they had at least one child: Stanley Marlton Massey (1895-1902). More work will have to be done to determine why it appears Stan was born before the marriage.

Manhattan, New York:
Grace appears in the 1900 US census living at 108 Washington Place with her father. "Grace Massey", age 36 (born 1879), appears as a lodger working in "massage" in the 195 New York state census living alone at 527 West 135th Street in Manhattan. In 1930 she appears in the census as a widow under her maiden name, living with her two sisters in Manhattan: Adaline Lindauer (1885-1945) aka Adeline Lindauer; and Sophie Lindauer (1875-after1930) who married a Davis (c1875-before1930).

She died sometime after 1930 and may have lived until the 1950s. Its is also possible she married and died under a new surname. She does not appear in the New York City Death Index 1898-1947.

Uncompleted Tasks:
Determine if Grace is buried in Rye, New York or if she was buried in Brooklyn. She may have died under the name "Massey" or "Lindauer".

Memories about Grace Lindauer:
Charles Edward Ensko II (1921-2004) said on July 26, 2003: "The first Lindauers settled in Philadelphia and may have been involved in horse racing. I have the sofa and chairs from the Philadelphia house that belonged to the Lindauers. My grandmother gave the chairs to me. My grandmother had Alzheimers and died at age 90 around 1941. My two aunts moved into the apartment and when they died I got the furniture. My grandmother went to a finishing school called Rutgers where the reservoir was in Manhattan, New York. The school was on 44th Street near a clothing store. My grandmother played the piano until she got Alzheimers. She had cousins called Addy Lindauer, Minny Lindauer and Grace Lindauer that lived in Washington Heights by us. In the 1930s they would come over to our house. Grace Lindauer was married and had a child that died. He fell down a flight of stairs in the large house in Rye in Westchester County. The house in Rye was very big on a couple of acres. Robert Ensko had a shop that sold silver at 682 Lexington Avenue that was three stories high and they owned the building."

Grace Lindauer (1875-after1930) was the first cousin, three times removed of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).
