My maternal grandparents, Harry William Linderman and Phyllis Eugenia (Palen) married on 27 February 1923 in Clayton County, Iowa.
They resided in Dubuque, Dubuque, County, Iowa in 1930.
In 1935 they resided in Ottawa, La Salle County, Illinois.

Harry & Phyllis had four daughters together: Yvonne Phyllis, Yvarra Irene (Billie), Jean Marie, and Patricia (Patsy) Mae Linderman.
In 1943 the family moved to Houston, Harris County, Texas.
My grandfather loved watching owls. He was always making wise cracks.
So, they named their home place “Wiseacres” in Westfield, Hamilton County, Indiana.
They moved to Houston, Harris County, Texas in 1943. They also named their place there “Wiseacres” in Crosby, Harris County, Texas.
My mother was in the last year of high school and transferred from Indianapolis to Lamar High School.
