Transcribed biography of Fritz Lindermann

FRITZ LINDERMANN was born July 25, 1836, in Mecklenburg, Germany. He is one of eight children born to Jasper and Mary Lindermann, both natives of Germany. Fritz lived in Germany with his father until twenty-two years of age, having received a common school education, when he emigrated to the United States, and settled in Porter County, working around for about four years; he now brought land in Jackson Township. He had been married to Sophia Fanter, a native of Germany, in 1859. He took his wife to his new farm, where they resided for fourteen years on 120 acres of good land. In the fall of 1877, he bought his present farm of 319 acres of excellent land. It is now in good condition, through the intelligent care of Mr. Lindermann, with good buildings and other improvements, and he has fair prospects of becoming one of the best farmers in Porter County. He has been a Mason for the last four years, and has taken seven degrees. He and his wife are members of the German Lutheran Church. In the spring of 1880, he was elected Township Trustee, and has served with ability. He is a Greenbacker and an ex-Republican. He has five children - Henry, Frank, Fritz, David and Emma.
