AUGUST LINDNER IS DEAD AT 87
Succumbs to Brief Illness at Home of Daughter In Maries County
RESIDENT 35 YEARS
Conducted Hotel at Belle, Wagon Maker at Vienna for Years
August G. Lindner died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Ed Lindner, at Belle at 7:30 last night after a brief illness of complications. He was 87 years old.
Mr. Lindner was born on a farm near Union in Franklin County October 8, 1849 and grew to manhood there. He worked for sometime on the steamboats plying the Mississippi and Ohio rivers during the reconstruction period following the civil war.
He and his brother-in-law Henry Hefti conducted a wagon making and blacksmithing business for many years at Vienna in Maries County. When the Rock Island railroad was built he opened a hotel at Belle which he conducted until Jos. W. Folk was elected governor when he secured a position at the prison. He held that position through Democratic and Republican administrations for twenty years.

He was married to Miss Anna Hefti fifty-five years ago. She preceded him in death four years. They had five children, four of whom, Mrs. Ed Lindner of Belle, Mrs. Roy Elliott of Jefferson City, Mrs. L.O. McClelland of Memphis, Tenn., and Mrs. Lawrence R. Lutkewitte of Jefferson City along with four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren survive.
Since the death of his wife, Mr. Lindner had made his home alternately with Mrs. Lutkewitte here and with Mrs. Lindner in Belle.
The body was brought here and taken to the Thorpe J. Gordon Funeral Home where services will be conducted at 3 p.m. tomorrow by Rev. Guthrie Birkhead. Burial will be in Riverview cemetery.
