I saw that you are in the same family as I am. Your Mary E. Lindhorst married my great uncle Hermann Hurdelbrink. Her parents are August William Lindhorst and Sarah Emma Culberson. Would love to share info.
I saw you were writing with my cousin Judy concerning Lindhorst's, and I am very interested in any items we could share concerning my Great Aunt Mary Elizabeth Lindhorst. Hope to write with you soon Roni
This is Jeffrey Lindhorst. I am trying to research my family back to European roots. My Great Grandfather was Fred Lindhorst, who lived in Ramsey Illinois, Children where Sheridan and Charles. Do you have any leads who Fred's parents were and when/where they emmigrated from?
Kind regrads, Jeffrey
Hi Jeffrey, I have Sheridan and Charles Lindhorst listed in my family records. They are cousins but The information I have on them shows their parents were Fred Lindhorst (b1 July 1890) and Lona Mathewson.
Fred's parents were William Frank Lindhorst (b.1947 Germany, d.1931) AND Eliza Ann Robertson.
William's parents were Henry Lindhorst (b. 10Feb1820, Assendorf, Hannover, Germany, d. 17Jan1888, Hurricane Township, Fayette County, IL) and Margaret Waldrop Bussman (b.10Jul1822, Germand, d.28Nov 1878, m.Germany)
Henry's parents were William Frank Lindhorst (b.1799,Assendorf, Hannover, Germany and his mother was Catherine UNKNOWN last name b. 1798, Germany, m.1818
Williams parents were Robert Fred Lindhorst born and died in Germany and Louisa Mae b. 25Feb1761, Germany, d. 7Feb1852, Fayette County, Illinois.
I have no verifications for any of these people or dates. I tried to find cemetery markers for Louisa Mae but had no luck.
Good luck on your search.
