Notables Project
Anne (Morrow) Lindbergh is Notable.

Anne had a wonderful mother who fostered in her children a love of literature in a way all great mothers would hope to. Every afternoon, no matter what else was happening, she stopped and read to her children. Anne would eventually become a very well known and loved author.

Sadly she is most remembered for the many tragic events that surrounded her marriage to famous aviator Charles Lindbergh. In 1932 her infant son was kidnapped and murdered.

We can only imagine what sadness must have laid in the heart of this adventurous, brilliant woman who endured so much during her life. She was the first American woman to earn a glider pilot's license and after her husband taught her to fly she logged many hours in several planes exploring and charting air routes between continents with her husband.

Anne passed away after a period of declining health in 2001. Her daughter wrote a book about her life called "No More Words", it chronicles the last years of her mothers life.

I would like to make a gentle objection to the biography of Anne Morrow Lindbergh above.

I don't think that she is mostly remembered for the suffering she endured around the kidnapping of her first son Charles A. Lindbergh Junior. I really think that she's remembered mostly for the beauty of her writing, for the fact that she didn't agree with her husband about staying out of WWII yet stayed with him, and for the fact that she was one of the first and most talented women pilots in the US. I've always admired AML, as she refers to herself in her diaries.

I think she was quite a remarkable person. Yes, of course she suffered immensely because of the kidnapping And the loss even after her memory had begun to depart she seems to have remembered the child she lost. But it's for the beauty of her writing that I will always remember her.

I wish I could write that way. I do my best and I often think of her when I'm working. Isabella Fiske McFarlin

Do not believe that sheer suffering teaches.

If suffering alone taught, all the world would be wise, since everyone suffers. To suffering must be added mourning, understanding, patience, love, openness, and a willingness to remain vulnerable. A. Lindbergh

I have adopted Dwight Morrow, Ann's father because we share ancestry and I have information about his ancestors. If you would like to know more about Anne's Morrow family, this book is a good place to start:
  • Alexander Morrow of Brooke County (W) Virginia and his descendants. Nees and Morrow, Gateway Press, Inc. Baltimore, MD 1993 929.273 Family History Library. Also available digitally on Family Search.

It is very well researched and lists original sources. All back before the internet!

What is Anne Morrow Lindbergh's Wikitree number?
posted by Isabella Fiske
Morrow-2456 and Morrow-1 do not represent the same person because: These are clearly totally different people born 100 years apart. Plus one is extremely famous for the kidnapping of her child! Not sure how these were connected, perhaps an error in the profile number. Thanks, Cindy Williams Lesure
Morrow-2064 and Morrow-1 appear to represent the same person because: These two profiles currently appear as sisters. They are not sisters, they represent the same woman - wife of Charles Lindbergh, the notable pilot.
