This is all that’s left of the Linderman family headstone with flower pot on it.
Woodlawn Cemetery, Winona, Minnesota where the Linderman family plot is located.
Abraham Linderman, was my 3rd. Great Grandfather, and he was born in 1810 in Montgomery, Orange County, New York, USA, and he died 2 Sept. 1893 in Winona, Minnesota, USA. He enlisted in Civil War as Sgt. for the Union. A Yankee soldier. He was born in New York. His ancestors settled in Germantown Twp., Pennsylvania in 1697. His ancestors helped found America. Our Linderman ancestors fought in the American Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, American Civil War. We are proud German decendants of the Linderman family.
Abraham Linderman married Mary Holman in 1833 in New York. They moved to Minnesota in 1856. Their homestead was at 231 E. Mark St, Winona, Minnesota.
He and Mary had two children; Eliza Abraim and Mary Linderman. Eliza Abraim Linderman, born 1843, in New York, joined the 9th. Il.Inf. at the age of 18 in 1861, during the Civil War, and died for the Union cause three months later. He is believed to have died of disease or from his wounds on the battlefield. I haven’t been able to find any record of where he was buried.
Their daughter, Mary Linderman, born 1859, in Bemidji, Minnesota, she never married(it was a deep, dark secret until 1995). She had one son, Edward Francis (E.F.) Linderman, of Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa. She resided with her son, “Edy” and her daughter-in-law, “Gud” Gudrun Ivarra (Lund) Linderman, at 705 W. Third St., Dubuque, Iowa, until her death in 1924. Gudrun Lund emigrated from Norway in 1896. She also died in Dubuque, Iowa in 1924.
God bless my poor ancestors, they lost so much. Abraham survived the Civil War, and lived until 1884, with his beloved Mary, in the Linderman Home place at 231 E. Mark St., Winona, Minnesota. His wife, Mary (Holman) Linderman, preceded him in death, in 1884. Burial: Linderman family plot in Woodlawn Cemetery, Winona, Winona County, Minnesota, USA
