Rye, New York:
In 1900 Arthur was living with his parents in Rye. Also living in the house was: LeBaron; Harry; Grover Dunne, aka Grover Cleveland Lindauer; and Louis Miller (1887-?). In 1900 he listed his occupation as a "trapeze performer". In 1910 Oscar was a boarder at a house on Smith Street in Rye, and he listed his occupation as an "actor in theater". In 1920 Oscar was again living with his parents at 209 Locust Avenue in Rye and he listed his occupation as "training athletic coach", he was 56 years old in 1920.

Bandy and Tune:
The oral family story that was passed down from Clara Freudenberg (1890-1959) to Selma Louise Freudenberg (1921- ) was that Anna Augusta Kershaw and Charles Frederick Lindauer, had twin sons that worked in the circus and were trapeze artists. One was called Arthur and his circus name was Bandy and his brother's circus name was Tune. Bandy and Tune traveled through Europe as circus performers. It was with great delight that in the 1900 census, Arthur listed his occupation as "trapeze performer" confirming this story. It is not known if Oscar had a twin brother. He had a brother, Harry, that died in 1921 of syphilis; and a brother, LeBaron, that worked as a gardener for a large estate in Rye.
Oscar died in 1944 in Grassland Hospital in Mount Pleasant, Valhalla, New York. He was living with his brother, LeBaron, at 46 Orchard Avenue in Rye. The cause of death was a carcinoma of his right salivary gland.
His funeral notice has not been found in the Rye Chronicle.
