I don't have direct information on William Lindauer; however, I can shed some light on the name origin.
When you are the "er" in Lindau it litteraly means "one who is from Lindau." So it is very likely that the name originated there but I have never been able trace it to there. At the present time there are a few Lindauers in Lindau which are believe are associated with a Hotel there by the name of Lindau. I have search much of southern Germany trying to learn the distribution of Lindauers there and their name patterns. I find that most of the Lindauers in that area now are further north around Stuttgart(but not in Stuttgart). I have traced my own ancestors to a small village about 25 miles north of Stuttgart where they owned a farm back as the late 1500's. So if the name does come from Lindau, it would be before that time. My research convinces me that there are now in excess of 2500 Lindauers in
