Family Search has the marriage record for Louis' daughter Blanche.  It tell us that Louis has a daughter named Blanche in 1883, his age is given as 23, and his wife's maiden name is listed as Ross.  His death certificate tell us he was a machinist, and that his wife's name was Emma.

Henry served with the 5th CO E PA Calvary, during the civil war.  He enlisted September 1 1861 and was discharged September 1 1864.

1864 - son Philip Linderborn is born
Philip married Amanda Getz Smith.  They are my paternal 3rd great grandparents, you can read more about them here -

Abt 1872 - Son Henry Linderborn is born
Henry is found in the city directory for Camden NJ, along with wife Frances.  In 1897 he is also listed as an umbrella maker.  He appears to go by the name Harry in some places, and his wife is often listed as Fannie.  In the 1930 census they are in NJ, Harry is listed as a bookkeeper for the railroad.  The 1930 census tells us Henry was age 26 when he got married, and that his wife Fannie was born in Pennsylvania.

Abt. 1873 Son  John Linderborn is Born
John is found in the city directory for Camden NJ in 1902, 1906 & 1908, occupation is carpenter.  In 1902 a wife named Mary is listed with him.

1874 - Daughter Anna Elizabeth Linderborn is born
Name: Anna Elisabeth Lindeborn
Birth Date: 13 May 1874

Baptism Place: Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
Baptism Age: 0
Father Name: Heinrich Wilhelm Lindeborn

Denomination: United Church of Christ
Organization Name: Salem Zion United Church of Christ

A DNA connection leads me to believe this could possibly be the Elizabeth Lindeborn who married George Washington Smith (1871 - Bef. 1930).  I don't know though - and in all documents I found on Elizabeth Lindeborn Smith, her birth year is given as 1876.   Very consistently.  I have no explanation for the 2 year difference, and no proof they are the same woman.

1875 - Son William Linderborn Born

William married Elizabeth Kelly, and is found in the New Jersey directory in Camden in 1901, like his brother Philip, he was an umbrella maker.  William's  draft registation gives his birthdate as 25 AUG 1875  & his marriage record shows that he married Elizabeth Kelly on 18 Jun 1894 in Camden, New Jersey, USA

Although older sister Anna Elizabeth, and younger brother Herman Frederich, appear in Salem Zion United Church of Christ records, I cannot find William there.  Census records and his draft registration list his birthplace as Maryland.

1882 - Daughter Emma Catherine Linderborn is born
"Emma" is the only daughter young enough in the 1885 census - so I suspect that her name is Emma Catherine, or something similar, but it is possible that there was a daughter named Catherine who died before 1885.  This record tell us that Henry's wife's maiden name was Long.
