Harry Linderman and Thad Hutchinson, Houston, Harris, Texas, 1954
Harry William Linderman was elected as Harris County Republican Chairman, in January 1954 . Phyl and Harry resided at 4002 Arnold St., Houston, Texas, and were quite the gracious hosts.
Harry & Phyl had four daughters; Yvonne Phyllis, Yvarra (Billie) Irene, Jean Marie, and Patricia (Patsy) Mae Linderman, and no sons.
Grandpa Harry grieved the loss of my Grandmother in 1963, when she died of Hodgekin’s Disease. He went bankrupt and had to sell off the family business and home to pay his wife’s medical bills.
Harry remarried in 1966 to Martha Burden Preston Johnston. They resided at 2727 Drexel Dr., Houston, Texas as husband and wife in 1995 when Grandpa Harry passed away.
He was the family historian and photographer. I guess you could say that I came by it rightfully.–:)
