Alexander Lutts, b 4Aug1805, was the son of John Lutz b 1772 NC and a first wife ca 1793/4 (may have been a Lindsey). John married second wife Catherine Bowman in about 1808. John Lutz was the son of Johannes "Pioneer" George Lutz b.ca1737/8 in Wurtemberg, Germany and Anna Catherina Schopf of Burke Co. NC. Pioneer George was the son of immigrant Johannes Georg Lutz (Hans Jerg Lutz), b.ca 1706 in Tiefenbach, Wurtemburg, Germany. Johannes migrated to this country in 1753 on the ship Windsor, apparently a widower, with his two sons, Johennes Georg and Caspar. They settled in Manor Township, Lancaster, PA. Their records are found at First German Reformed Church And Trinity Lutheran Church in Lancaster,PA. There is a book on this family written by Margaret D. Lutes, whose husband is/was from the Indiana/Idaho branch. I don't know if she is still alive or has any copies. I got mine about 15 years ago. I am descended from Pioneer George's son John Adam and the TN branch of the family.
