Grover Cleveland Lindauer (1885-1968) aka Grover Dunne. He was a salesman in magazine advertising. (b. Christmas Day, December 25, 1885; probably Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA - d. August 09, 1968; 509 Queen Anne Road, Teaneck, Bergen County, New Jersey, 07666, USA) Social Security Number 092263069.
Grover Cleveland Lindauer from the World War I draft registration and his death certificate. Grover Dunne from the 1900 US census living in Rye, Westchester County, New York.
His parents were thought to be Charles Frederick Lindauer (1836-1921) and Mary Dunne. How he fits into the Lindauer family tree is still uncertain, until his birth certificate and marriage certificate are located with the names of his parents. He was most likely born in Manhattan but he has not been found in the birth index. It was thought that Charles Frederick Lindauer (1836-1921) was his father, but that appears to be contradicted by the DNA evidence. His death certificate has "cannot learn" written where the names of his father and mother should appear. He is listed as a nephew to Charles Frederick Lindauer in the 1900 US census, so it is possible that one of his siblings may be the father and that would fit the DNA evidence better.
According to his death certificate, Grover was born on Christmas Day, December 25, 1885. He was most likely born in Manhattan or New Jersey, but he does not appear in the New York City birth index. In the 1900 US census he listed "new York" as his place of birth.
Rye, New York:
In the year 1900 he was living in Rye, Westchester County, New York in the home of Charles Frederick Lindauer (1836-1921) and Anna Augusta Kershaw (1841-1931) under the name "Grover Dunne", and he is listed as a "nephew". As a nephew he would be the child of one of Charles' siblings, or his spouse's siblings.
Also in the household was Louis Miller. Louis and Grover appear together in a photograph that belonged to Eloise Ensko (1882-1966). The photograph is labeled "Grover and brother Louis".
On June 28, 1907, in Manhattan, Grover married Lelia Belle Hebbard (1888-1943) aka Elia Hebbard. Their certificate was number "17948". He was listed as "Grover Lindauer".
Together they had one child: Gladys Stanley Lindauer (1908-1997).
World War I:
He worked for the New York State Federation of Labor in Nautical, New York when he registered for the draft in 1918.
In 1920 Grover was living at 401 9th Avenue, West New York, Hudson County, New Jersey. He worked selling advertising for a magazine.
New York State Federation of Labor:
Official Proceedings of the Annual Convention of the New York State Federation of Labor (1922): "Grover C. Lindauer, field representative of the Official Book was directed to meet the Council at its annual meeting in Albany in December." Official Proceedings of the Annual Convention of the New York State Federation of Labor (1940): "Conferred with Grover C. Lindauer with reference to New York State Federation of Labor Official Book."
Teaneck, New Jersey:
By 1930 through at least 1942 he was living at 509 Queen Anne Road in Teaneck, Bergen County, New Jersey. He ran a bar called Old Heidelburg in Teaneck on Cedar Lane.
World War II:
He filled out his draft registration card in April 24, 1942. He was living at 509 Queen Anne Road in Teaneck and was working for the New York State Federation of Labor in Albany, New York. He was 5' 11" and 183 pounds. This gives him a body mass index of 25.5. He was 57 years old.
In 1950 he married Norma M. Stickles (1899-1982).
Grover died on August 9, 1968 from "bronchiopneumonia, gastrointestinal hemorrhage and left hemiplegia". His death certificate has "cannot learn" written where the names of his father and mother should appear.
He was buried in Fairview Mausoleum in Fairview, New Jersey.
Sherry Hecht Arnold (1965) took the autosomal DNA test and she shows up as a "distant" relative to Richard Arthur Norton (1958). If our common ancestor was Charles Frederick Lindauer (1836-1921) then we should appear as third cousins.
Memories about Grover Lindauer:
Roger Cleveland Hecht (1935- ) tells the following story about Grover: "He celebrated his birthday on Christmas, but we didn't know a lot about him. He worked for a magazine, or a printer, I think people paid him to put in ads. It was called Allied Printing Trade and he would take me into New York with him once in a while while he was working. My grandmother, Lelia Belle Hebbard died and Grover married Norma Stickles. After he remarried my family never talked to him again. I would visit him because he lived down the street from me. We would always go to the post office for his work. He ran a bar called Old Heidelberg in Teaneck, New Jersey on Cedar Lane. I grew up in Teaneck, New Jersey. He would solicit ads for that publication then later he retired. His second wife was nice but we didn't get to know her until Grover died and we talked at his funeral. If I stopped at his house on the way to school he would reach into his pocket and give me a couple of bucks. He lived at 509 Queen Anne Road, Teaneck. He had a fish pond in his yard and he loved his roses and dahlias. He also loved dogs. We would pick the Japanese beetles off his roses and feed them to the goldfish in his pond, or put them in a jar with gasoline. He would give me a few bucks and I would get candy for my friends and myself, and we would eat so much we would get sick. Then my friend's mothers would call my mother and she would yell at Grover for giving me too much money. He was 5' 10" or 5' 11". He didn't say much. When I was little he bought me a car, I was eight or eleven. It had a rumble seat, but, my parents said I was too young for a car. He would take me to the railroad station and we would watch the trains come in. He always bought me fancy clothes and I looked light Little Lord Fauntleroy in all the family pictures."
Sherry Hecht Arnold (1965) wrote on May 5, 2014 via Facebook: "I talked to my aunt a few months ago. I found out more about why my dad's family didn't have much to do with Grover after Leila died. According to her, Leila found out that Grover had mistresses in some of the cities where he traveled for work. Not sure how many. But Gladys blamed Grover for her mother's stroke. I'm sure my grandmother wanted nothing to do with any woman who replaced her mother. She had a really hard time and was very embarrassed by my dad's multiple marriages. When I visited them in NJ when I was 12, my dad was on his third marriage and I had to pretend that he and my mom were still married when we were around their friends. I don't know if my dad doesn't know this stuff or just doesn't want to talk about it."
There is a ship called the "G. C. Lindauer". It was built in 1901 in the state of Washington, and when the index was created on June 30, 1915 the vessel was in port in San Francisco, California. It is not known if there is any relationship between him and the vessel.
Grover Cleveland Lindauer (1885-1968) was the half great-granduncle of Richard Arthur Norton (1958) if his father is Charles Frederick Lindauer I (1835-1921).
Order his Manhattan marriage certificate to see if it contains the name of his parents.
