I have recently found a possible link between my James family and the Lutts or Loots family.In 1850 Wayne County, TN census I have found following family: (Family name possibly Lutts) Adam Loots age 52 born SC Mariah Loots age 46 born NC Alexander Loots age 22 born NC John Loots age 18 born NC Catherine Loots age 17 born NC Jacob Loots age 11 born NC Monroe Loots age 3 born TN John Loots age 53 born NC
I find the following family in 1860 Wayne county, TN census: Note-Family name Lutts? Household #350 Manda Loots age 40 born TN William Loots age 11 born TN Adam T. Loots age 3 born TN
Household #352 A.J. James age 30 born TN Katherine James age 26 born NC Columbus M. James age 5 born TN Nancy J. age 2 born TN Adam A. James age 11/12 months born TN James M. Loots age 12 born TN
In 1870 Hardin County, TN census I find following family living in same household: Andrew J. James age 39 born TN Catherine James age 37 born NC Narcia? J. James age 12 born TN Adam A. James age 9 born TN George W. James age 7 born TN Elisa E. James age 5 born TN Benjamin F. James age 1 born TN James M. Lutts age 23 born TN
I am wondering if Catherine James maiden name was Lutts and if this family is connected to your Lutts.If you think there is a connection, I would be interested in any information you could provide on Lutts family.I can not find the James family after 1870 but I have found death notice for a Catherine James for 1874 in Hardin county, TN and for an A.J. James in 1874(I think).I am wondering what happened to their children.Please feel free to e-mail me directly.
