Karl Spindler was the Skipper of the "Aud", a ship captured by the Germans and used to send a cargo of arms to the west coast of Ireland in April, 1916 for the Easter Rising. Spindler wrote a book about the adventure, "The Mystery of the Casement Ship," published in 1932 or 1936, I think. He was intercepted by the British Navy after waiting offshore of Co. Kerry to unload. The British escorted his ship to Cork Harbor, where he scuttled the ship after having his crew change into their uniforms and raise the German flag. He was held prisoner in England and eventually repatriated. He came to America in the 1930s, and he and his wife owned a hotel in Florida. They were interned near Bismarck, North Dakota as enemy aliens during World War II, and stayed in Bismarck after the war. Karl died in 1951, and his remains are buried in Fairview Cemetery. His wife died in 1987, I believe, and is buried next to him.
