Looking for all information on the life of Gideon Edgar Linderman.Father not known, but mother was named Clara (a Native American Cherokee). His mother passed away shortly after his birth.He may have had a brother, but it is unknown if there were other siblings. Gideon's Social Security Number was issued in Iowa. His second marriage was to Stella Mae Gilliam in Blair, NE on May 30, 1935 which ended in divorce around 1938/39.This marriage produced one child, a daughter; Clarice Alvina Linderman (my mother). He was in the USNavy at one time. He was also possibly part of a traveling circus and was the "Snake Handler". Contacts with my grandfather were mostly severed around 1947. Rumor has it that Gideon moved on and married a few more times and has several children. He passed away in Dec. 1972 in Miami, OK.
I am extremely interested in finding information about Gideon and other memebers of this lost branch of my family tree.
