Looking around, I found a site with Italian names listed. The name: "Luzio" seems to be the closest to Lutz/Lutzia. It may have been changed a bit at Ellis Island, if he came thru that port. It seems that they spelled as best they could, working with the heavy accents, etc. When his wife buried him, she may have been able to document the correct spelling. Don't give up. Keep looking. Do you know what mine he may have worked in? Perhaps he was killed in a mining accident and might be on some kind of listing. I'm brainstorming for you...Hoping someone might flip the right switch that will help you.
