Family history of Gudrun Ivara Lund Linderman, who married Edward Francis Linderman, had their home built and resided at 705 W. Third Street, Dubuque, Iowa, 1908. Children: Harry William, Gladys Serena, Irene Mary, and Evelyn Frances Linderman
My Maternal Great Grandmother, Gudrun Ivara (Lund) Linderman emigrated from Namsos, Lufthavn, North Trondelag, Norway in 1896 to Ellis Island, New York, on the ship Heckla.
Gudrun emigrated on 11 November 1896, at the age of 15. I cannot fathom how brave she must have been or maybe just how desperate she was. To board a ship and leave her homeland during the dead of winter. She must have been a very strong woman. I never got the privilege of knowing her, because she passed away years before I was born. Gudrun passed away after gall bladder surgery when a blood clot when to her brain. in those days they did not use stockings to protect against blood clots. She emigrated as a servant to the Glenn W. Traer family in Hyde Park, Chicago, Illinois. My mother told me that she came as a governess.
Gudrun married Edward Francis Linderman on 11 September 1902 in Winona, Minnesota.
