To the Times Herald: Paris, France, June 1, 1907. -- I should be grateful if you would lend me your assistance to enable me to discover the heirs or next of kin of a man named Luc, Lukas or Lucas Boltz.They are certainly in America somewhere, possibly in some small out of the way place.I wish to place them in possession of a sum exceeding 150,000 francs.The following are the short facts: Luc. Boltz was born in a village called “Egisheim,” near Colmar, in Alsace Lorraine on the 27th of August, 1820.He was the son of Thiebaud Boltz and of his wife, Agnes Freudenreich. He had a brother named Joseph who married Agnes Bentz and they had a daughter named Marie Boltz, but all these three died in Alsace years ago. Luc Boltz was in France about 1855 and unmarried and he then emigrated, it is said, to America, and is believed to have married there. I particularly wish to discover his children or grand children, as they would be primarily entitled.There are a great many people named Boltz all over America, and some of them may be relations.It is important that claimants should give the fullest details as to relationship, and also procure the marriage and death certificate of Luc Boltz. The name is spelled Luc in his birth certificate, but he may have changed it to Lucas or Lukas in the States. Thanking you in advance, I am yours obediently, NAPOLEON ARGLES, Lawyer. 21 Rue Le Peletier, Paris, France.
