Grover was born on Christmas Day in 1885 to "Charles Lindauer" and Mary Dunne. How he fits into the Lindauer family tree is still uncertain. His marriage certificate needs to be located. He was born in Manhattan and later moved to Rye, New York. His father most likely is Charles Frederick Lindauer I (1835-1921) who may have fathered children with more than one woman.

In the year 1900 he was living in Rye, Westchester County, New York in the home of Charles Frederick Lindauer I (1835-1921) and Anna Augusta Kershaw (1841-1931) under the name "Grover Dunne", and he is listed as a "nephew". As a nephew he would be the child of one of Charles' siblings, our his spouse's siblings.

Memories about Grover Lindauer[]

  • Roger Cleveland Hecht (1935) tells the following story about Grover: "He celebrated his birthday on Christmas, but we didn't know a lot about him. He worked for a magazine, or a printer, I think people paid him to put in ads. It was called Allied Printing Trade and he would take me into New York with him once in a while while he was working. My grandmother, Lelia Belle Hebbard died and Grover married Norma Stickles. After he remarried my family never talked to him again. I would visit him because he lived down the street from me. We would always go to the post office for his work. He ran a bar called Old Heidelberg in Teaneck, New Jersey on Cedar Lane. I grew up in Teaneck, New Jersey. He would solicit ads for that publication then later he retired. His second wife was nice but we didn't get to know her until Grover died and we talked at his funeral. If I stopped at his house on the way to school he would reach into his pocket and give me a couple of bucks. He lived at 509 Queen Anne Road, Teaneck. He had a fish pond in his yard and he loved his roses and dahlias. He also loved dogs. We would pick the Japanese beetles off his roses and feed them to the goldfish in his pond, or put them in a jar with gasoline. He would give me a few bucks and I would get candy for my friends and myself, and we would eat so much we would get sick. Then my friend's mothers would call my mother and she would yell at Grover for giving me too much money. He was 5 foot, 10 inches or 5 foot 11 inches. He didn't say much. When I was little he bought me a car, I was eight or eleven. It had a rumble seat, but, my parents said I was too young for a car. He would take me to the railroad station and we would watch the trains come in. He always bought me fancy clothes and I looked light Little Lord Fauntleroy in all the family pictures."


Grover died on August 09, 1968 from "bronchiopneumonia, gastrointestinal hemorrhage and left hemiplegia".


He was buried in Fairview Cemetery, Fairview, New Jersey.

Genetic genealogy[]

Sherry Hecht Arnold (1965) took the autosomal DNA test and she shows up as a "distant" relative to Richard Arthur Norton (1958). If our common ancestor was Charles Frederick Lindauer (1836-1921) then we should appear as third cousins.
