My g.g.grandmother, Louise Lindemeyer Goos Schneider, was born in Lippe-Detmold, Germany, in 1835. She married Johannes E. Goos, from Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, in 1856.
Johannes came to MO through Lake Charles, LA where he had relation, Daniel Goos. Louise's children were Auguste, Magnolia, Louise, John E. Auguste and Magnolia were born in TX. On the 1860 Gasconade Co., MO, census, Louise's brother, Herman H. K. Lindemeyer, age 21 is living with her family. There are still Lindemeyers living in this area, but are either unwilling to talk about their history, or
they simply don't know anything.
