Today in my research I came across a William Linderborn, Umbrella Maker, in NJ.  Philip was an umbrella maker.  There's both a Philip and  a William here, brothers, and BOTH are umbrella makers.  :-)

1893 - Son Russell Philip Linderborn 
Born July 4 1893
Der Deutsche correspondent., April 18, 1914, Page 3, Image 3

In 1920 he lived on South Battery Ave, in Baltimore MD, married to May, with a 4 year old daughter, Dorothy.  (Dorothy married a Meshaw and died in 1995)
His occupation was Pipe-Fitter for a chemical company.

The SS death index tells us he died December 1961, but I do not know where he is in 1930 or 1940, I cannot find census records for him.  He might be right in Baltimore, which I suspect, just under an odd spelling.  City directories seem to show that he did not leave Baltimore MD.

1897 Son Alexander Linderborn was born
Born 20 Aug 1897
Marylands Military Men tells us that Alex served in WWI from 1917-1919,was wounded, and later died of pheumonia.
He died at Camp Sherman Ohio, February 27 1919.  Age 20.
The stone simply says "Lindenborn". Cemetery records list both Alexander & Phillip, no dates given, as buried in that plot. Phillips death notice states he was buried here.

died in World War service under honorable conditions.

The 1900 census says Philip was born in Maryland, and that his parents were born in Germany. His occupation is umbrella maker

It tells us Amanda was born in PA, her father was born in Pennsylvania and her mother in England.

His daughter Ethel and his three sons Russell, Alexander & Howard were all born in New Jersey.

1901 - Family listed in City Directory
In 1901 we find Philip & his siblings listed in the city directory in Camden NJ - 
This list lines up nicely with the 1885 state census of New Jersey.  Note that both Philip and his brother William are umbrella makers.

Russell would have been the oldest son, and he would have been right around 20 years old.  But in 1913, Philip was closer to 50 than the 40 reported here.  The address in this article is the same as that found in the Baltimore directory for him and his family that year.  Russell got married in April of 1914.

Cedar Hill Cemetery records show an Alexander Lindenborn is also buried in this same plot - I am assuming this is his son, who died honorably in war in 1919.  There are no other markers or stones at this location, and no dates are listed in the Cedar Hill Cemetery Records.

St Paul's Episcopal Church
Both Philip and Amanda's wedding, and Howards's baptism, can be found in the St Paul's Episcopal Church records.  It's odd that Howard was baptised at age 5, and I can find no other records for any of the other children being baptized there.  A LOT of Smith's appear in the records, I would guess this was possibly Amanda's parents church?

This is the only Linderborn Family I can find in the census in Maryland in 1880.  Philip would be 16, so possible he is living elsewhere, and possible this is his family?  Only a possibility, nothing I can prove yet.  And if this is the only Linderborn family around in 1880..  what happened to P. Linderborn that came over from Germany in 1834?  Should the P. be a D?  Or is P. the father of David?

There is a Philip Linderborn who served in the civil war, regiment from VA.  Possible relative?


We know the following about Philip from the census - 
Philip was born Jun 1864 in Maryland
his parents were born in Germany
He married Amanda in 1889
He died before 1930

based on all of that, the above is a possible match for his father - if he was 18 when he came over, he would have been born about 1816, making him around 48 years old when our Philip was born.  It might be worth tracking down this Philip, who I believe is probably the same that served in the civil war, to see if I can rule him out.
