    Biography
    • From Floyd's History Of Northumberland County 1911: FRANCIS W. LINDNER, son of Israel, was born Feb. 22, 1852, and attended the public schools of Schuylkill county, remaining with his father until he was twenty-one. He then farmed in Liberty township, Montour county, for six years, and in Chillisquaque township, Northumberland county, for three years. In 1882 he entered the business world as a dealer in farm implements at Pottsgrove. This business he carried on until 1890, when he was elected county commissioner of Northumberland county, and served two terms, or until 1896, during which time he lived at Sunbury. Returning at the end of that time to Pottsgrove, he there carried on the mercantile business he had established some years before, and this he continued until 1899, when he resumed the implement business, conducting establishments at Pottsgrove, Milton and Watsontown. He was very successful until his retirement, in 1907, his son Harvey L. succeeding him. That year he built his fine residence at Pottsgrove, equipped with modern conveniences that contribute much to the material comfort.
      Mr. Lindner is a Democrat in politics, and in addition to his service as county commissioner, referred to above, he has been assessor of his township, and at the present time is serving as president of the East Chillisquaque township school board.

F. and the Artisans, and he was a charter member of Sunbury Lodge of Elks, No. 267.
      Mr. Lindner has been twice, married. His first wife, Alice Van Horn, daughter of William Van Horn, died in 1901, and is buried in Oak Grove cemetery. To this marriage were born: Harvey L., mentioned below; Charles W., of Muncy, who married Cora Hunter, and has two children, Irwin and Desna; Alfred R., a salesman at Milton, who married Edith Trego and has a son, John; James C., a bookkeeper at Milton, who married Ida Compton and has a daughter, Isabell; Lee E., of Shamokin, a telegraph operator with the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, who married Lena Allender, and has one child, Alice; Francis W., a clerk at Milton, unmarried; and Margaret, who married AIbert C.
