- Charlotte Lindauer (1869-1894) aka Lottie Lindauer. Lottie Lindauer may be the "Lottie Landus" buried in Cypress Hills Cemetery in Brooklyn in the Arthur Oscar Moritz Lindauer and Ann Augusta Kershaw grave site. She also appears in the 1880 Census as a daughter of John Jacob Lindauer (1840-1888). Her death certificate was in the New York archive. Cause of death was shock following appendicitis operation.

There is a John Edwin Lindauer (1874-?) who was institutionalized in the Hudson County Insane Asylum in Secaucus, New Jersey under the name "John Edwin Lindauer" born 1874 with sister "Clara Lindauer". He may be a twin of Edwin Charles Lindauer (1874-?), or this may be a synonym for him. he appears to have died before 1920.
She died on January 3, 1876 in Manhattan, New York City, New York. In the 1880 United States Census her children are living with John Jacob Lindauer (1840-1888). There is a Caroline Ritter that died on January 3, 1876 in Manhattan that is the correct age.
Memories about Caroline RitterEdit
- Natalie Jean Lindauer (1910-1996) said that Caroline Ritter was a family member, and she thought that she was the woman that emigrated from France that married the Lindauer in her family. Ann Richardson had Natalie sketch out a family tree before she died and she listed Caroline as her grandmother.
Why do these children appear in the 1880 United States Census as children of John Jacob Lindauer (1840-1888)? Did Caroline Ritter (1846-1876) die and John adopt his brother's children from a second wife? In the 1870 census John doesn't have any children listed. John, along with his sister Eloise, is living with his brother Charles' family. John must have raised the children after Caroline died.
Find her marriage certificate if it exists, it may list her husband's parents. It appears that she never married, she died under her maiden name.
