Ada Lindauer I (1868-c1895) Schoenfeld (b. 1868; most likely Hoboken or Manhattan, USA - d. circa 1895; most likely Hoboken, Hudson County, New Jersey, USA)

Name:
Ada Lindauer I, Adeline Lindauer.

Parents:
She was the daughter of Charles Frederick Lindauer (1836-1921) and Anna Augusta Kershaw (1841-1931).

Birth:
1868, most likely Hoboken or Manhattan.

Siblings:
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-c1895) aka Ada Lindauer I, who married Charles L. Schoenfeld (c1860-?); Anna Lillian Lindauer (1872-1956) who married Ira Lowe (1875-bef1910); Harry Chauncey Lindauer I (1877-1923) who married Hannah Shea (1884-?) and died of syphilis; and LeBaron Hart Lindauer (1879-1945) aka Lee Lindauer, who is named after the physician that attended his birth, and he later married Catherine Harney (1878-1966).

Half siblings:
Oscar most likely fathered children with other women and they include: Arthur Oscar Lindauer (1867-1944) who was a trapeze performer who never married and who doesn't appear on the 1870 census with the other children but lived with the family in Rye, New York; Grover Cleveland Lindauer (1885-1968) with Mary Dunne as the mother; Louis Miller who is listed as a brother of Grover in a family photo; and Charlotte Lindauer (1869-1894) aka Lottie Lindauer, with Carolina Ritter as the mother. Lottie was buried in Brooklyn with Charles' other children. Other children exist that died at birth or as infants and are buried at Cypress Hills Cemetery in Brooklyn, New York, but their birth and death certificates must still be found in the New York archives to confirm if they are the children of Charles or one of his siblings.

Hoboken, New Jersey:
She appears in the 1880 US census living with her parents in Hoboken, New Jersey.

Marriage:
On June 3, 1886 she married Charles L. Schoenfeld II (c1865-?) in Manhattan. Charles was the son of Charles L. Schoenfeld I (c1840-?) and Elise Piest Kuchan (c1840-?). Charles and Elise were from Stadthagen, Lippe-Schaumburg, Germany. On Ada's marriage certificate, her parents are listed as: "Charles F. Lindauer" and "Annie Geschohr". The certificate was number "57675".

Children:
Lulu Schoenfeld (1886-?) who was born on October 20, 1886; Elsie Schoenfeld (1888-?) who was born on December 10, 1888; Ada B. Schoenfeld (1888) who was born on December 10, 1888 and was a twin of Elsie who died as an infant, or they are the same person; and Edward Schoenfeld (1891-1958) who was born in December of 1891 and died on June 18, 1958. All the children were born in Hoboken.

Death:
Ada died between 1891 and 1900 in Hoboken, New Jersey. Her last child was born in 1891, and her husband was listed as a widower in 1900 on the census.

Unfinished tasks:
Her death certificate will have to be found. Her descendants will have to be searched for until a living person is found. The best way will be to search through the New Jersey marriage index until I can find one of the daughters married. From there I can search for their death and living people mentioned in the obituary.

Relationship:
Ada Lindauer was the great-grandaunt of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).

Research:
Researched and written by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) for Findagrave starting on April 6, 2004.
