Aviator Alfred Lindeburg was married to my Great Great Aunt, Vivian Pates. Vivian was an actress and stage performer, who appeared in several silent films circa 1912- 1914. They had at least one child, Myles Frederick Lindeburg. They divorced in 1947 in Dade County, Florida. Vivian died in 1963 in Florida.
It's possible that Myles is still alive, as he was born in 1937. He lived in San Antonio, TX, and may currently be in Muscle Shoals, AL, although this information is fifteen years old.
Hope this helps.
LINDEBURGH FAMILY NOTESHello Mr. Cooper,
via email from Asisan Leeann Lindeburg Baker, 8-13-11
I found this website http://earlyaviators.com/elindebu.htm in doing some search on my family. I am the daughter of Myles F. Lindeburg the son of Alfred Lindeburg and Vivian Pates.
I don't know how much more info I can offer but I am really interested in possibly getting in touch with Bruce Pates who would be my distant cousin. He had his information correct as far as my father still living and living in San Antonio, Texas. He doesn't live in Muscle Shoals, Alabama however my younger brother does who has the name of Myles R. Lindeburg as well as my mother. My parents divorced several years ago and mother moved back home to Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
My father has been vague with info on his family and I have never met any of his family. I would love to trace back my family and possibly find other Lindeburgs and Pates.
If you could possibly pass on my email to Mr. Bruce Pates or send me contact information it would greatly appreciated. If my brother and I discover more information that would be helpful to your site we will sure pass it on. As I said we are searching since we know very little ourselves.
Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for your reply.
Many Blessings, Asisan Leeann Lindeburg Baker
Perhaps you can help me. I'm looking for biographical information on an early aviator, WW1 through WW2, named, Alfred Lindeburg, and he is listed in the, 1925 Who's Who in American Aviation. So far, I've found out that he's buried in Arlington National Cemetery, 1897 to 1962.
I'd greatly appreciate any help that you can offer, or possibly steer me in the right direction. Thanks!
Editor's Note: If you can help Ron with his search, please contact him through me. I will forward your message to him.
