Edward Francis “Edy” Linderman

Birth: Feb. 9, 1875
Winona County
Minnesota, USA
Death: Jun. 26, 1968
Dubuque County
Iowa, USA
Only grandson of Abraham & Mary (Hammell) Linderman of Winona, Minnesota. Only child of Mary Linderman. Father unknown.
E. F. Linderman worked and lived on the Mississippi River all his life. He worked for the U.S. Lock & Dam in LaCrosse, Wisconsin; and Dubuque, Iowa.
Married: Gudrun Ivarra Lund from Norway on 11 September 1902 in Winona, Minnesota. Edward & Gudrun had one son, Harry; and three daughters, Gladys Serene, Irene Mary, and Evelyn Frances Linderman. They all resided at 705 W. Third St., Dubuque, Iowa.
Great Grandpa was in the I.O.O.F. in Dubuque, Iowa. He converted to Jehovah’s Witness after the death of his beloved wife, Gud. The children were raised as Lutheran and all baptized as Lutheran in the St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church, at 2025 Jackson Street, in Dubuque, Iowa.
Edy was cremated and his ashes were scattered in the same cemetery as Gud, up on the hill, because the government told his family, that they couldn’t scatter his ashes in the Mississippi River where he wanted to be. They said that it would pollute the river.Family links:
