LeBaron Hart Lindauer (1879-1945) aka Lee Lindauer. He worked as a gardener and is named after the physician that attended his birth. (b. August 14, 1879, 245 East 20th Street, Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA - d. February 23, 1945, United Hospital, Port Chester, Westchester County, New York, USA)



He was born in 1879 and the family was living at 245 East 20th Street in Manhattan, New York. He was named after the physician that attended his birth, who was "H. LeBaron Harte".



He dropped out of school after the 8th grade according to the 1940 United States Census.

Hoboken, New Jersey to Rye, New YorkEdit

In 1880 the family was living at 51 8th Street in Hoboken, Hudson County, New Jersey and between 1890 and 1895 the family moved from New Jersey to Rye, New York. In 1900 the family was living in Rye and the children living with Charles and Anna were: Arthur, Harry and LeBaron plus two children who may have been fathered by Charles but are listed as nephews: Grover Dunne and Louis Miller. Grover died under the name Grover Cleveland Lindauer (1885-1968) and the fate of Louis Miller is unknown.


On May 25, 1918 LeBaron married Catherine Marie Harney (1878-1966) but they didn't have any children.

In 1905 he was working as a clerk in a grocery store. LeBaron registered for the draft on September 12, 1918. In 1920 LeBaron and Catherine were living at 38 Elm Place in Rye with LeBaron's brother Harry and his sister Anna. LeBaron was working as a handyman for a private family. Around 1922 LeBaron started work as a gardener at the Charles Sicard estate. Charles Sicard appears to have been a Manhattan attorney with a summer home in Rye according to the 1920 Manhattan census. In 1930 LeBaron and Catherine were taking care of his mother, Anna Kershaw.


In 1943, LeBaron retired from his position as gardener, and he died in 1945 at United Hospital at 406 Boston Post Road in Port Chester, Westchester County, New York of pernicious anemia.
