Linderman Family Genealogy

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.

They resided in Indianapolis, Hamilton County, Indiana in 1940.

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.

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:
name: Emma Classen

gender: Female
age in 1870: 5y

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.

I have been in contact with Jean Ferber regarding the Kransz family. 
I know he has copied you what I have sent him on the Kransz family. 
I recently found out that Maria Palen (Died October 8, 1897) and John Schrup had 8 children,
one of them Nicholas J. Schrup. He married Mary Anna Kransz daughter of Nicholas and Margaret Faber Kransz. 
Do you know when Maria & John got married? I have an obit on Maria Palen that said they emigrated from Luxembourg in 1855,
with six little children and settled in Iowa. Do you know who were the parents of Maria? Also in the obit it
says that she leaves two brothers Nicholas and Leopold. Do you have any information on them? 
If you would like a copy of the obit I will email it to you. 
Thank you in advance for any information you can provide on Maria Palen & John Schrup. Lydia

My Maternal Great Grandfather, Frank Joseph Palen, son of Leopold Frank Palen & Mary (May) Haupert Palen, from Bachleiden, Luxembourg.

Married Emma Elsie (Claussen) Palen in 1885 in Caledonia, Houston County, Minnesota.

Father of Leo Frank, Phylis Adele “Eugenia”(Linderman), Hedwig G., and Flossie Palen.

Devout Catholic.

Resided at 1208 Jackson St. in Dubuque, Iowa.

Married second time to a widow, Ann Nason, who had one daughter (name unknown Nason).

Frank & Ann Nason Palen had no children together.

Frank Palen, attended a Catholic Church, there close to the River, the Cathedral of St. Raphael there on Bluff St, because that is where his Grandson, Robert Leon Palen, was ordained on 7 June 1941.

Frank Joseph & Emma Elsie (Claussen) Palen are buried beside each other in the Mount Calvary Cemetery, Dubuque, Iowa.

Frank resided in Retirement Home near Mount Calvary Cemetery up until his death, because Ann had died before him. His home at 1208 Jackson Street was sold, and the house was hers from her former marriage.

A world of thanks to LeRoy Amacher for taking the time to go and take this photo of Frank J. & Emma E. Palen’s headstone. I was soooo excited to see it for the first time!

Frank & Emma’s Granddaughter, my Mother, Jean Marie Linderman Frederick Mancill, was 84, and resided in Houston, Texas, Jan. 1, 2012. Mother passed away on 9 March 2012.

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.

This blog is dedicated the memory of my mother, Jean Marie (Linderman) Frederick Mancill. Today would have been her 85th. birthday. Her mother died when I was young and I don’t remember her much. She was Phylis Eugenia (Palen) Linderman. Mother was only 36 then in 1963 and she missed her dearly, and always honored her memory.

My maternal Great Grandfather, was Frank Joseph Palen of Caledonia, Houston County,  Minnesota. His father, Leopold Frank Palen emigrated from Bachlieden, Diekirch, Luxembourg in 1862 to Caledonia, Minnesota.
