Eloise Lindauer II (1856-1935) Freudenberg, aka Ellie Lindauer. (b. March 25, 1856; Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA - d. February 9, 1935; Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, USA)
Eloise was the daughter of Charles Frederick Lindauer (1835-1921) and Anna Augusta Kershaw (1841-1931). Charles was the son of Oscar Arthur Moritz Lindauer (1815-1866) who had emigrated from Strasbourg in Alsace-Lorraine. Anna was the daughter of Abraham Kershaw and Sarah Oldrin (1816-1894) of Glen Cove, Nassau County, New York.
She was born on March 25, 1856, in Manhattan, New York City, New York. March 25 and New York City come from her death certificate. 1856 comes from the 1860 US census where she was four years old. Her death certificate listed her as born in 1860. Generally the document closest to the event is the most accurate. Her birth certificate should be at the The City of New York Municipal Archive.
Her siblings include: Arthur Oscar Lindauer (1867-1944) who was a trapeze artist who may have worked under the name "Bandy and Tune" with one of his brothers; Adeline Lindauer (1868-1962) aka Ada Lindauer, who was born in Manhattan in New York and died in Rye in New York; Anna Lilian Lindauer (1872-1956) who married Ira Lowe (1875-before1910) and had children and grandchildren; Harry Chauncey Lindauer (1877-1923) who was born in Manhattan in New York and worked as a shipping clerk and married Hannah Shea (1884-?) before he died of syphilis; and LeBaron Hart Lindauer (1879-1945) who was born August 1878 in Manhattan in New York and he married Catherine Harney (1878-1966) but he may be a half-brother.
Eloise married Max S. Freudenberg (1857-1921) around 1877 at age 22 and they lived with her parents at 51 8th Street in Hoboken, New Jersey. Max had emigrated from Berlin, Germany with his father and siblings.
Hudson County, New Jersey:
Eloise and Max rented a house at 89 Adam Street in Hoboken from about 1888 to 1893, then they moved to 220 Madison Street in Hoboken till at least 1903. Most of the children were born in this house in Hoboken. They lived at 51 Booraem Avenue in Jersey City till around 1910. In 1910 they were living at 22 Hopkins Avenue in Jersey City. They were living at 63 Concord Street in Jersey City when Max died in 1921 and were still there up until the 1930 US Census.
Eloise and Max had 15 children, 9 lived to adulthood, and 5 of them had children and grandchildren. She had her first child at age 23 and her last child at age 48. The children were: Baby-Boy Freudenberg (1879-1879) Max S. Freudenberg II (1881-1881) who died as an infant; Ada Augusta Freudenberg (1885-1957) who married Ralph Kohlman (1885-1957) the printer; Charles Fredrick Freudenberg (1887-1942) who married Julia Mary Buttomer (1883-1973) and is the one sibling without a photograph; Jenny Gertrude Freudenberg (1888-1888) who died as an infant; Clara Freudenberg (1890-1959) who never married; Arthur Oscar Freudenberg I (1891-1968) who worked as a real estate broker and married Maria Elisabeth Winblad (1895-1987); Max Freudenberg III (1893-1900) who lived till years old and appeared on the 1900 census and may be buried in Hoboken Cemetery; Louis Julius Freudenberg (1894-1918) who died in World War I; Harry Freudenberg (1895-1896) who died as an infant; Richard F. Freudenberg I (1896-1988) who worked as a chemical salesman and married Charlotte C. Kahrar (1897-1963); Eloise Freudenberg (1898) who died as an infant; Eugene Freudenberg I (1900-1956) who worked as a freight handler and married Florence Catherine Skinner (1901-1986); Ralph Freudenberg (1903-1980) who worked as a typesetter for the New York Times and he married Nora Belle Conklin (1905-1963) and later married Lottie Dombrowska (1916-1995); and Grace May Freudenberg (1904-1981) who married George Dewey Sanford I (1898-1965) who worked in Ralph Kohlman's print shop.
Rye, New York:
Eloise's father moved up to Rye, New York around 1898 and Eloise would visit him there. Her father may have owned some wine-gardens and may have been involved in a hotel in Rye. He owned cigar stores with his brothers in Manhattan and Hoboken and Jersey City. He owned a large house in Rye, but it no longer exists.
In 1918 her household income averaged $85 a month according to the paperwork filed with the War Risk Insurance report she filed. Her husband was a clerk for an insurance company who earned $36 a month when he was able to work, he could only work about half the year because of his heart trouble. Clara earned $40 a month as a stock girl, Eugene earned $40 a month as a clerk, Ralph earned $24 a month as an errand boy. The total income would be $140 when everyone was working, or $1,860 per year. That would be equivalent to $29,000 in 2016, and be below the poverty line for a household or 6 at $32,570.
Eloise was blind in her later years and lived at 61 Concord Avenue with her daughter Clara in a two family house. Richard F. Freudenberg (1896-1988) and his wife and child, lived in the other unit of this two family house.
Some of Eloise's papers were saved when the house was sold and are now with Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ). They were given to him by the children of Richard Charles Freudenberg II (1918-1994).
Eloise died on February 9, 1935 in Jersey City, New Jersey.
She was buried at Flower Hill Cemetery on February 14, 1935. She was buried with her husband Maximillian S. Freudenberg and the following children: Charles Fredrick Freudenberg; Clara Freudenberg; Arthur Oscar Freudenberg; Louis Julius Freudenberg I; and Eugene Freudenberg. Her children that died as infants are buried at Cypress Hills in Brooklyn, New York in the Oscar A.M. Lindauer plot. Some children that died as infants may be buried in Hoboken Cemetery according to the death certificates, but the plot hasn't been located yet. Eloise has no marker for her grave. The only marker on the plot is for her son, Louis Freudenberg, who died in WWI and the stone has been toppled over and is barely legible. A replacement was ordered by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) and it now stands as the only marker for the plot.
Eloise Lindauer II (1860-1935) was the great-grandmother of Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ).

Researched and written by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) for Findagrave starting on June 26, 2003. Updated on March 10, 2013 with the date of her burial. Updated on April 8, 2013 to change her place of birth to Manhattan based on her death certificate and her year of birth as 1856 based on the 1860 US census. The information on Max Freudenberg was also edited to reflect that he arrived with his father and siblings and the information on Weber was removed because she was Charles' second wife. The correct spelling of Sarah Oldrin (1816-1894) and her years of birth and death were added. Updated on Valentines Day, February 14, 2016 with statistics on her children. Updated on March 23, 2016 with her household income.
