Dubuque

Daughter of Henry Claussen and Mary Koble Claussen both born in Germany. 
Emigrated in 1855 to Illinois. There name was also spelled Claussen, and Classen.
I was so excited to find Emma in the 1870 Census for Illinois, so now after 25 yrs. of searching I know who her parents and siblings were. Emma was my Maternal Great Grandmother. 

The 1870 Census for Illinois shows:

Emma was the sister of:
August, Frederick, Minnie, Caroline “Carrie”, and Louisa Clausenn.
Emma Elsie (Clausenn) Palen, beloved first wife of Frank Joseph Palen, married in 1885 in Caledonia, Houston County, Minnesota. 

Mother of Phylis Adele Eugenia (Palen) Linderman, my Maternal Grandmother. I never knew my Great Grandmother, Emma because she died before I was born.

My Mother is Jean Marie (Linderman) Frederick Mancill, and she told me that Emma was Lutheran, but Frank was Catholic. And…that poor Emma had to attend her church alone, because she had promised to raise their children as Catholic. 

My Grandmother wasn’t allowed to attend church with her Mother, and was forced to attend Catholic schools until she was in High School. 
Phylis changed spelling of her name to Phyllis, and then she begged her Father to allow her to go to Public High School. He never forgave himself for it, because she married a Lutheran not a Catholic. 

Through research, thanks to LeRoy Amacher, I found out that Frank and Emma were both buried in the Mount Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Dubuque, Iowa, beside each other. 
Emma was a good, loving, and kind woman. She was a homemaker.

Emma and Frank had four children Leo, Phylis, Hedwig, and Flossie Palen. Hedwig and Flossie died very young. 
They have many, many descendants. They would be proud.

One of their daughters, my Grandmother, Phylis Adele (Palen) Linderman, and Harry William “Billy” Linderman, had four daughters: Yvonne (Burgess Levesque), Yvarra “Billie” (Jackson), Jean Marie(Frederick Mancill), and Patricia Mae “Patsy” (Cooke), and no sons.

Born Phylis “Phy” Eugenia (Palen) in Bemidji, Clearwater County, Minnesota to Frank Joseph Palen and Emma Clausen Palen.Raised as Catholic and attended St. Mary’s Catholic schools, until high school when she went to Dubuque High School. Americanized the spelling of her name Phylis to Phyllis. Daughter, Yvonne Phyllis and Granddaughter, Phyllis Jean Frederick were named after her.Palen ancestors emigrated from Luxembourg in 1855.
Met Harry William Linderman at Dubuque High School. He was a Lutheran, not a Catholic.

Daughter of Frank Joseph Palen & Emma Elsie Clausen Palen.

Pianist, Artist, Homemaker, and Singer.

Wife of Harry “Billy” William Linderman.
Co-Owned “Linbar, Inc.” in Houston, Harris county, Texas. Resided at 4002 Arnold St., Houston, Texas 77005, in West University Place, from 1943-1963.

My Grandmother and Grandfather were members of the First United Methodist Church-Downtown, at 1320 Main Street, Houston, Texas, up until 1963.

CO-Owned Saturday’s Tavern, in Gayhill, Texas during the 1950’s. They spent many a weekend there.

Died of Hodgkin’s Disease in December 1963.
Harry & Phyl were quite the host and hostess. They had many friends and family.

Phyl was the Mother of four girls, Yvonne Phyllis, Yvarra “Billie” Irene, Jean Marie and Patricia Mae “Patsy” Linderman.

Phylis & Harry loved to travel, and attended the Republican Conventions. They were both Republicans. Grandpa Harry Linderman was the 1954 Harris County Republican Chairman in Houston, Harris County, Texas. He was one of the Republican Delegates to the Republican Convention in San Francisco, California, 1954-1956, from Houston, Harris County, Texas.

Her family was so broken up by her death, that they couldn’t force themselves to visit her gravesite.

There is no headstone for Grandma Linderman. She is buried underneath an old, Oak tree and beside a Doctor.

PHYLLIS EUGENIA PALEN WAS RAISED AS CATHOLIC. HER PARENTS SENT HER TO PRIVATE CATHOLIC SCHOOL UNTIL SHE WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL. SHE BEGGED HER FATHER TO LET HER GO TO PUBLIC SCHOOL. SHE WENT TO PUBLIC SCHOOL AND MET, AND FELL IN LOVE WITH, THEN ELOPED WITH HARRY WILLIAM LINDERMAN, A PROTESTANT. MUCH TO HER FATHER’S DISMAY, BECAUSE HARRY WAS LUTHERAN NOT CATHOLIC. PHYL’S FATHER NEVER FORGAVE HIMSELF FOR ALLOWING HER TO GO TO PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
PHYL AND HARRY MOVED AROUND A LOT, BECAUSE HARRY WAS A SALESMAN.
I KNOW THAT THEY LIVED IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, DUBUQUE, IOWA, AND INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA. PHYL WOULD FIX UP AND SELL THEIR HOME FOR A PROFIT,AND THEY WOULD BUY ANOTHER HOME IN WHATEVER TOWN THEY MOVED TO.
GRANDMA PHYL WAS AN ARTIST, PIANIST, HOMEMAKER, MOTHER AND SOMETIMES EVEN FATHER. HARRY WAS ON THE ROAD A LOT. HE WAS A SALESMAN.
PHYL WAS A VERY CREATIVE, INTELLIGENT WOMAN. SHE LOVED HER FLOWERS, ANTIQUES, ART, AND MUSIC. PHYL ALWAYS WORRIED ABOUT HER WEIGHT. SHE AND HARRY LOVED TO DINE, DRINK, AND DANCE. THEY COLLECTED ANTIQUES. THEY HAD VERY EXPENSIVE TASTES.
PHYL AND HARRY’S HOME TOGETHER WAS AT 4002 ARNOLD STREET, HOUSTON, TEXAS. THEY LIVED TOGETHER AS MAN & WIFE UNTIL PHYL DIED OF HODGEKIN’S DISEASE IN 1963. SHE WAS BURIED AT THE FOREST PARK- LAWNDALE CEMETERY, HOUSTON, HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS. THERE IS NO HEADSTONE FOR HER GRAVE. SHE LOVED YELLOW DAISIES, AND THAT WAS THE LAST PICTURE SHE EVER PAINTED BEFORE SHE DIED IN 1963. NEITHER HARRY OR THE DAUGHTERS COULD BRING THEMSELVES TO VISIT THE GRAVESITE, THEY SAID THAT THEY CHOSE TO REMEMBER HER WHEN SHE WAS ALIVE. source: Sally Ann Frederick Fallin Brown Tudor

We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

Texas, USA 

Jean Marie (Linderman)Frederick Mancill, daughter of Phyllis “Phyl” (Palen) Linderman and Harry William Linderman. Granddaughter of Frank Joseph Palen and Emma Elsie (Claussen) Palen, also of Edward Francis Linderman and Gudrun Ivarra (Lund)Linderman of Dubuque, Iowa.
First huband LeRoy Eugene Frederick. Married 15 November 1947, Liberty, Texas. Divorced 1968. the Frederick homestead was at 1709 Cheston Drive, Jacinto City, Texas 77029.
Six children together: Joseph Lee, Phyllis Jean, Sally Ann, Karl Thomas, Patricia Marie, and Sarah Kay Frederick.
Mother was a very loving and creative woman. She taught me how to sew at 16, she made us a braided rug(I still have today), she knitted, crocheted, needlepointed, and quilted.
Second husband Louis “Honey Lou” Clifford Mancill. Married 5 December 1968, Houston, Texas. Our Mancill homestead was at 11039 Lafferty Oaks St, Houston, Texas.
My Mother and Dad made our house a home. We celebrated many a birthday, and all holidays at this home, at 11039 Lafferty Oaks St., in Houston, Texas.
He preceded her in death. No children of this union. One step son, Michieal Wayne Mancill.
She was the life of the party. She lived, she laughed and she loved. Lou called her his “satan pussycat”, and the “princess and the pea”. She was spoiled by my Dad. They spoiled each other. They were each other’s best friend. They were deeply in love.
Mother passed away at home surrounded with family that loved her. She just drifted off, and the angels came to get her. My consolation was she was not in pain, and not alone, and I was able to be there with her for her last six years of her life.
Mother just passed today, March 9, 2012, in Rosharon, Texas. She left us peacefully to be with Jesus. I am so grateful to have been able to spend the last six years living together with Mother. We got to be even closer than ever.
She was blessed with a good life, and a good family. She really was always there with all of us six children, up until the last week of her life. She fell on Monday, and we think she had a mini stroke, she never was able to speak clearly after that. She passed away on Friday afternoon, in her sleep.
Mother left us just like she wanted to. She had dignity and respect from all who knew her. Everyone who knew her loved her. She was a very giving person, and always was there for her six children. Our family was a very loving, close-knit family.
Burial followed at the same Oaklawn Cemetery, where Aunt Yvonne Linderman (Levesque), Uncle Kenneth Jackson, and Aunt Yvarra “Billie” Linderman (Jackson) are buried.
